Al-Jinn

Qur'an

 Revealed 40th  

72:1
Say, "It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an.

72:2
It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it.  And we will never associate with our Lord anyone.

72:3
And [it teaches] that exalted is the nobleness of our Lord; He has not taken a wife [*Hosea 2:2] or a son

72:4
And that our foolish one has been saying about God an excessive transgression.

72:5
And we had thought that mankind and the jinn would never speak about God a lie.

72:6
And there were men from mankind who sought refuge in the males among the jinn, so they [only] increased them in burden.

72:7
And they had thought, as you thought, that God would never send anyone [as a messenger].

72:8
And we have sought to touch the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards and burning flames.

72:9
And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.

72:10
And we do not know [therefore] whether evil is intended for those on earth or whether their Lord intends for them a right course.

72:11
And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways.

72:12
And we have become certain that we will never cause failure to God upon earth, nor can we escape Him by flight.

72:13
And when we heard the guidance, we believed in it.  And whoever believes in his Lord will not fear deprivation or burden.

72:14
And among us are Muslims [in submission to God], and among us are the unjust.  And whoever has become Muslim - those have sought out the right course.

72:15
But as for the unjust, they will be, for Hell, firewood.'

72:16
And [God revealed] that if they had remained straight on the way, surely We would have given them water in abundance

72:17
So We might test them therein.  And whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will put into arduous punishment.

72:18
And [He revealed] that the masjids are for God, so do not invoke with God anyone.

72:19
And that when the servant of God stood up supplicating Him, they almost became about him a compacted mass."

72:20
Say, "I only invoke my Lord and do not associate with Him anyone."

72:21
Say, "Indeed, I do not possess for you [the power of] harm or right direction."

72:22
Say, "Indeed, there will never protect me from God anyone [if I should disobey], nor will I find in other than Him a refuge.

72:23
But [I have for you] only notification from God, and His messages."  And whoever disobeys God and His messenger - then indeed, for him is the fire of Hell; they will abide therein forever.

72:24
[The disbelievers continue] until, when they see that which they are promised, then they will know who is weaker in helpers and less in number.

72:25
Say, "I do not know if what you are promised is near or if my Lord will grant for it a [long] period."

72:26
[He is] Knower of the unseen, and He does not disclose His [knowledge of the] unseen to anyone

72:27
Except whom He has approved of messengers, and indeed, He sends before each messenger and behind him observers

72:28
That He may know that they have conveyed the messages of their Lord; and He has encompassed whatever is with them and has enumerated all things in number.
