In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "It has been revealed to
me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns
listened (to this Qur'ân). They said: 'Verily! We have heard
a wonderful Recital (this Qur'ân)!
2. 'It guides to
the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never
join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allâh).
3. 'And exalted be
the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son
(or offspring or children).
4. 'And that the
foolish among us [i.e. Iblîs (Satan) or the polytheists
amongst the jinns] used to utter against Allâh that which
was wrong and not right.
5. 'And verily, we
thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allâh.
6. 'And verily, there
were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among
the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and
7. 'And they thought
as you thought, that Allâh will not send any Messenger (to
mankind or jinns).
8. 'And we have sought
to reach the heaven; but found it filled with stern guards and
9. 'And verily, we
used to sit there in stations, to (steal) a hearing, but any who
listens now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush.
10. 'And we know
not whether evil is intended for those on earth, or whether their
Lord intends for them a Right Path.
11. 'There are among
us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups
each having a different way (religious sect, etc.).
12. 'And we think
that we cannot escape (from the punishment of) Allâh in
the earth, nor can we escape (from the punishment) by flight.
13. 'And indeed when
we heard the Guidance (this Qur'ân), we believed therein
(Islâmic Monotheism), and whosoever believes in his Lord
shall have no fear, either of a decrease in the reward of his
good deeds or an increase in punishment for his sins.
14. 'And of us some
are Muslims (who have submitted to Allâh, after listening
to this Qur'ân), and of us some are Al-Qâsitûn
(disbelievers those who have deviated from the Right Path)'.
And whosoever has embraced Islâm (i.e. has become a Muslim
by submitting to Allâh), then such have sought the Right
15. And as for the
Qâsitûn (disbelievers who deviated from the
Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell,
16. If they (non-Muslims)
had believed in Allâh, and went on the Right Way (i.e. Islâm)
We should surely have bestowed on them water (rain) in abundance.
17. That We might
try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of
his Lord (i.e. this Qur'ân, and practice not its laws and
orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e.
18. And the mosques
are for Allâh (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Allâh.
19. (It has been
revealed to me that) When the slave of Allâh (Muhammad SAW) stood up invoking (his Lord
Allâh) in prayer to Him they (the jinns) just made round
him a dense crowd as if sticking one over the other (in order
to listen to the Prophet's recitation).
20. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "I invoke only my Lord
(Allâh Alone), and I associate none as partners along with
21. Say: "It
is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to the Right
22. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "None can protect me from
Allâh's punishment (if I were to disobey Him), nor should
I find refuge except in Him.
23. "(Mine is)
but conveyance (of the truth) from Allâh and His Messages
(of Islâmic Monotheism), and whosoever disobeys Allâh
and His Messenger, then verily, for him is the Fire of Hell, he
shall dwell therein forever ."
24. Till, when they
see that which they are promised, then they will know who it is
that is weaker concerning helpers and less important concerning
25. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "I know not whether (the
punishment) which you are promised is near or whether my Lord
will appoint for it a distant term.
26. "(He Alone)
the All-Knower of the Ghâ'ib (unseen), and He reveals
to none His Ghâ'ib (unseen)."
27. Except to a Messenger
(from mankind) whom He has chosen (He informs him of unseen as
much as He likes), and then He makes a band of watching guards
(angels) to march before him and behind him.
28. [He (Allâh)
protects them (the Messengers)], till He sees that they (the Messengers)
have conveyed the Messages of their Lord (Allâh). And He
(Allâh) surrounds all that which is with them, and He (Allâh)
keeps count of all things (i.e. He knows the exact number of everything).
