072.001 Say (O Muhammad): It is revealed unto me that a company of the Jinn gave
ear, and they said: Lo! we have heard a marvellous Qur'an,
072.002 Which guideth unto righteousness, so we believe in it and we ascribe no
partner unto our Lord.
072.003 And (we believe) that He - exalted be the glory of our Lord! - hath taken
neither wife nor son,
072.004 And that the foolish one among us used to speak concerning Allah an
072.005 And lo! we had supposed that humankind and jinn would not speak a lie
concerning Allah -
072.006 And indeed (O Muhammad) individuals of humankind used to invoke the
protection of individuals of the jinn, so that they increased them in revolt against
072.007 And indeed they supposed, even as ye suppose, that Allah would not raise
anyone (from the dead) -
072.008 And (the Jinn who had listened to the Qur'an said): We had sought the
heaven but had found it filled with strong warders and meteors.
072.009 And we used to sit on places (high) therein to listen. But he who listeneth
now findeth a flame in wait for him;
072.010 And we know not whether harm is boded unto all who are in the earth, or
whether their Lord intendeth guidance for them.
072.011 And among us there are righteous folk and among us there are far from that.
We are sects having different rules.
072.012 And we know that we cannot escape from Allah in the earth, nor can we
escape by flight.
072.013 And when we heard the guidance, we believed therein, and whoso believeth
in his Lord, he feareth neither loss nor oppression.
072.014 And there are among us some who have surrendered (to Allah) and there are
among us some who are unjust. And whoso hath surrendered to Allah, such have
taken the right path purposefully.
072.015 And as for those who are unjust, they are firewood for hell.
072.016 If they (the idolaters) tread the right path, We shall give them to drink of
water in abundance
072.017 That We may test them thereby, and whoso turneth away from the
remembrance of his Lord; He will thrust him into ever-growing torment.
072.018 And the places of worship are only for Allah, so pray not unto anyone along
072.019 And when the slave of Allah stood up in prayer to Him, they crowded on
him, almost stifling.
072.020 Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I pray unto Allah only, and ascribe unto
Him no partner.
072.021 Say: Lo! I control not hurt nor benefit for you.
072.022 Say: Lo! none can protect me from Allah, nor can I find any refuge beside
072.023 (Mine is) but conveyance (of the Truth) from Allah, and His messages; and
whoso disobeyeth Allah and His messenger, lo! his is fire of hell, wherein such dwell
072.024 Till (the day) when they shall behold that which they are promised (they may
doubt); but then they will know (for certain) who is weaker in allies and less in
072.025 Say (O Muhammad, unto the disbelievers): I know not whether that which ye
are promised is nigh, or if my Lord hath set a distant term for it.
072.026 (He is) the Knower of the Unseen, and He revealeth unto none His secret,
072.027 Save unto every messenger whom He hath chosen, and then He maketh a
guard to go before him and a guard behind him
072.028 That He may know that they have indeed conveyed the messages of their
Lord. He surroundeth all their doings, and He keepeth count of all things.
