Al-Jinn


قُلۡ أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ أَنَّهُ ٱسۡتَمَعَ نَفَرٞ مِّنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَقَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا سَمِعۡنَا قُرۡءَانًا عَجَبٗا

(72: 1) Say, (O Prophet), it was revealed to me that a band of jinn attentively
listened1 to (the recitation of the Qur'an) and then (went back to
their people) and said:

يَهۡدِيٓ إِلَى ٱلرُّشۡدِ فَـَٔامَنَّا بِهِۦۖ وَلَن نُّشۡرِكَ بِرَبِّنَآ أَحَدٗا

(72: 2) “We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur'an2 which guides
to the Right Way; so we have come to believe in it, and we will not associate
aught with Our Lord in His Divinity”; 3

وَأَنَّهُۥ تَعَٰلَىٰ جَدُّ رَبِّنَا مَا ٱتَّخَذَ صَٰحِبَةٗ وَلَا وَلَدٗا

(72: 3) and that “He – exalted be His Majesty – has not taken to Himself either
a wife or a son”; 4

وَأَنَّهُۥ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى ٱللَّهِ شَطَطٗا

(72: 4) and that “the foolish among us5 have been wont to say outrageous
things about Allah”;

وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّآ أَن لَّن تَقُولَ ٱلۡإِنسُ وَٱلۡجِنُّ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ كَذِبٗا

(72: 5) and that “we had thought that men and jinn would never speak a lie
about Allah”, 6

وَأَنَّهُۥ كَانَ رِجَالٞ مِّنَ ٱلۡإِنسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٖ مِّنَ ٱلۡجِنِّ فَزَادُوهُمۡ رَهَقٗا

(72: 6) and that “some from among the humans used to seek protection of some
among the jinn, and thus they increased the arrogance7 of the jinn”;

وَأَنَّهُمۡ ظَنُّواْ كَمَا ظَنَنتُمۡ أَن لَّن يَبۡعَثَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٗا

(72: 7) and that “they thought, even as you thought, that Allah would never
raise anyone (as a Messenger)”; 8

وَأَنَّا لَمَسۡنَا ٱلسَّمَآءَ فَوَجَدۡنَٰهَا مُلِئَتۡ حَرَسٗا شَدِيدٗا وَشُهُبٗا

(72: 8) and that “we tried to pry (the secrets of) the heaven, but we found
it full of terrible guards and shooting meteors”;

وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقۡعُدُ مِنۡهَا مَقَٰعِدَ لِلسَّمۡعِۖ فَمَن يَسۡتَمِعِ ٱلۡأٓنَ يَجِدۡ لَهُۥ شِهَابٗا رَّصَدٗا

(72: 9) and that “we would take up stations in the heaven to try to hear but
anyone who now attempts to listen finds a shooting meteor in wait for him”; 9

وَأَنَّا لَا نَدۡرِيٓ أَشَرٌّ أُرِيدَ بِمَن فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ أَمۡ أَرَادَ بِهِمۡ رَبُّهُمۡ رَشَدٗا

(72: 10) and that “we do not know whether evil is intended for those on the
earth, or whether their Lord intends to direct them to the Right Way”; 0

وَأَنَّا مِنَّا ٱلصَّـٰلِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَۖ كُنَّا طَرَآئِقَ قِدَدٗا

(72: 11) and that “some of us are upright and some of us are otherwise for
we follow widely divergent paths”; 1

وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّآ أَن لَّن نُّعۡجِزَ ٱللَّهَ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَن نُّعۡجِزَهُۥ هَرَبٗا

(72: 12) and that “we thought that we will neither be able to frustrate Allah
on earth, nor frustrate Him by flight”; 2

وَأَنَّا لَمَّا سَمِعۡنَا ٱلۡهُدَىٰٓ ءَامَنَّا بِهِۦۖ فَمَن يُؤۡمِنۢ بِرَبِّهِۦ فَلَا يَخَافُ بَخۡسٗا وَلَا رَهَقٗا

(72: 13) and that “when we heard the teaching of the Right Way we came to
believe in it; he who believes in His Lord shall have no fear of suffering loss
or being subjected to any injustice”; 3

وَأَنَّا مِنَّا ٱلۡمُسۡلِمُونَ وَمِنَّا ٱلۡقَٰسِطُونَۖ فَمَنۡ أَسۡلَمَ فَأُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ تَحَرَّوۡاْ رَشَدٗا

(72: 14) and that “among us some are Muslims (Those who have submitted to
Allah), and some of us are deviant. So those who became Muslims found the Right
Course;

وَأَمَّا ٱلۡقَٰسِطُونَ فَكَانُواْ لِجَهَنَّمَ حَطَبٗا

(72: 15) but those who deviated from the Truth, will be the fuel for Hell.”4

وَأَلَّوِ ٱسۡتَقَٰمُواْ عَلَى ٱلطَّرِيقَةِ لَأَسۡقَيۡنَٰهُم مَّآءً غَدَقٗا

(72: 16) If5 people were to keep firmly to the Right Way, We would
have vouchsafed them abundant rain6

لِّنَفۡتِنَهُمۡ فِيهِۚ وَمَن يُعۡرِضۡ عَن ذِكۡرِ رَبِّهِۦ يَسۡلُكۡهُ عَذَابٗا صَعَدٗا

(72: 17) so that We might try them through this bounty. 7 Whoso
turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, 8 He will cause him
to suffer a grievous chastisement;

وَأَنَّ ٱلۡمَسَٰجِدَ لِلَّهِ فَلَا تَدۡعُواْ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ أَحَدٗا

(72: 18) and that “mosques belong to Allah, so do not invoke anyone with Him”; 9

وَأَنَّهُۥ لَمَّا قَامَ عَبۡدُ ٱللَّهِ يَدۡعُوهُ كَادُواْ يَكُونُونَ عَلَيۡهِ لِبَدٗا

(72: 19) and when Allah's servant0 stood up to call on Him, they
well-nigh swarmed him.

قُلۡ إِنَّمَآ أَدۡعُواْ رَبِّي وَلَآ أُشۡرِكُ بِهِۦٓ أَحَدٗا

(72: 20) Say, (O Prophet): “I call on my Lord alone, and I do not associate
aught with Him in His Divinity.”1

قُلۡ إِنِّي لَآ أَمۡلِكُ لَكُمۡ ضَرّٗا وَلَا رَشَدٗا

(72: 21) Say: “Surely neither it is in my power to hurt you nor to bring you
to the Right Way.”

قُلۡ إِنِّي لَن يُجِيرَنِي مِنَ ٱللَّهِ أَحَدٞ وَلَنۡ أَجِدَ مِن دُونِهِۦ مُلۡتَحَدًا

(72: 22) Say: “None can protect me from Allah, nor can I find a refuge apart
from Him.

إِلَّا بَلَٰغٗا مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرِسَٰلَٰتِهِۦۚ وَمَن يَعۡصِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ فَإِنَّ لَهُۥ نَارَ جَهَنَّمَ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَبَدًا

(72: 23) (My task is no more than) to deliver Allah's proclamation and His
messages. 2 And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, surely
the Fire of Hell awaits him; therein he will abide in perpetuity.”3

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا رَأَوۡاْ مَا يُوعَدُونَ فَسَيَعۡلَمُونَ مَنۡ أَضۡعَفُ نَاصِرٗا وَأَقَلُّ عَدَدٗا

(72: 24) (They shall not change their ways) until they see that against which
they had been warned, and then they will know whose helpers are weaker and whose
supporters are fewer in number. 4

قُلۡ إِنۡ أَدۡرِيٓ أَقَرِيبٞ مَّا تُوعَدُونَ أَمۡ يَجۡعَلُ لَهُۥ رَبِّيٓ أَمَدًا

(72: 25) Say: “I know not whether what you are promised is near or whether
my Lord will prolong its term. 5

عَٰلِمُ ٱلۡغَيۡبِ فَلَا يُظۡهِرُ عَلَىٰ غَيۡبِهِۦٓ أَحَدًا

(72: 26) He is the Knower of the Unseen, and He does not disclose His Unseen
to anyone6

إِلَّا مَنِ ٱرۡتَضَىٰ مِن رَّسُولٖ فَإِنَّهُۥ يَسۡلُكُ مِنۢ بَيۡنِ يَدَيۡهِ وَمِنۡ خَلۡفِهِۦ رَصَدٗا

(72: 27) other than to a Messenger whom He chooses7 (for the bestowal
of any part of the knowledge of the Unseen), whereafter He appoints guards who
go before him and behind him, 8

لِّيَعۡلَمَ أَن قَدۡ أَبۡلَغُواْ رِسَٰلَٰتِ رَبِّهِمۡ وَأَحَاطَ بِمَا لَدَيۡهِمۡ وَأَحۡصَىٰ كُلَّ شَيۡءٍ عَدَدَۢا

(72: 28) so that He may know that they have delivered the messages of their
Lord. 9 He encompasses in His knowledge their surroundings and keeps
a count of all things.”0
