Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Jinn(al-Jinn)
72:1 Say: 'It has been revealed to me that a company of the jinn gave ear, then they said, "We have indeed heard a Koran wonderful
72:2 guiding to rectitude. We believe in it, and we will not associate with our Lord anyone
72:3 He -- exalted be our Lord's majesty! has not taken to Himself either consort or a son
72:4 The fool among us spoke against God outrage
72:5 and we had thought that men and jinn would never speak against God a lie
72:6 But there were certain men of mankind who would take refuge with certain men of the jinn, and they increased them in vileness
72:7 and they thought, even as you also thought, that God would never raise up anyone
72:8 And we stretched towards heaven, but we found it filled with terrible guards and meteors
72:9 We would sit there on seats to hear; but any listening now finds a meteor in wait for him
72:10 And so we know not whether evil is intended for those in the earth, or whether their Lord intends for them rectitude
72:11 And some of us are the righteous, and some of us are otherwise; we are sects differing
72:12 Indeed, we thought that we should never be able to frustrate God in the earth, neither be able to frustrate Him by flight
72:13 When we heard the guidance, we believed in it; and whosoever believes in his Lord, he shall fear neither paltriness nor vileness
72:14 And some of us have surrendered, and some of us have deviated. Those who have surrendered sought rectitude
72:15 but as for those who have deviated, they have become firewood for Gehenna!"
72:16 Would they but go straight on the way, We would give them to drink of water copious
72:17 that We might try them therein. And whosoever turns away from the Remembrance of his Lord, He will thrust him into chastisement rigorous
72:18 The places of worship belong to God; so call not, along with God, upon anyone
72:19 When the servant of God stood calling on Him, they were wellnigh upon him in swarms
72:20 Say: 'I call only upon my Lord, and I do not associate with Him anyone
72:21 Say: 'Surely I possess no power over you, either for hurt or for rectitude.
72:22 Say: 'From God shall protect me not anyone, and I shall find, apart from Him, no refuge
72:23 excepting a Deliverance from God and His Messages. And whoso rebels against God and His messenger, for him there awaits the Fire of Gehenna; therein they shall dwell forever.
72:24 Until, when they see that which they are promised, then they will know who is weaker in helpers and fewer in numbers
72:25 Say: 'I do not know whether that which you are promised is nigh, or whether my Lord will appoint for it a space
72:26 Knower He of the Unseen, and He discloses not His Unseen to anyone
72:27 save only to such a Messenger as He is well-pleased with; then He despatches before him and behind him watchers
72:28 that He may know they have delivered the Messages of their Lord; and He encompasses all that is with them, and He has numbered everything in numbers.
