Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Jinn(al-Jinn)
72:1 Say, 'I have been inspired that there listened a company of the ginn, and they said, "We have heard a marvellous Qur'a
72:2 that guides to the right direction; and we believe therein, and we join no one with our Lord
72:3 for, verily, He - may the majesty of our Lord be exalted!- has taken to Himself neither consort nor son
72:4 '"And, verily, a fool among us spake against God wide of the mark
72:5 "'And we thought that men and ginn would never speak a lie against God
72:6 "'And there are persons amongst men who seek for refuge with persons amongst the ginn; but they increase them in their perverseness
72:7 And they thought, as ye thought, that God would not raise up any one from the dead
72:8 "'But we touched the heavens and found them filled with a mighty guard and shooting-stars
72:9 and we did sit in certain seats thereof to listen; but whoso of us listens now finds a shooting-star for him on guard
72:10 '"And, verily, we know not whether evil be meant for those who are in the earth, or if their Lord means right by them
72:11 '"And of us are some who are pious, and of us are some who are otherwise: we are in separate bands
72:12 '"And we thought that we could not frustrate God in the earth, and could not frustrate Him by flight
72:13 "But, verily, when we heard the guidance we believed therein, and he who believes in his Lord shall fear neither diminution nor loss
72:14 '"And, verily, of us are some who are Muslims, and of us some are trespassers; but those of us who are Muslims they strive after right direction
72:15 and as for the trespassers they are fuel for hell."
72:16 And if they will go right upon the way, we will irrigate them with copious wate
72:17 to try them thereby; and whoso turns from the remembrance of his Lord He will drive him to severe torment
72:18 And (say) that the mosques are God's, and that ye should not call on any one with God
72:19 and that when God's servant stood up to pray they called out to him and well-nigh crowded upon him
72:20 Say, 'I only call upon my Lord, and I join no one with Him.
72:21 Say, 'Verily, I cannot control for you either harm, or right direction.
72:22 Say, 'Verily, as for me none can protect me against God, nor do I find any refuge beside Him,
72:23 except delivering the message from God and His errands: and whoso rebels against God and His Apostle, verily, for him is the fire of hell for them to dwell therein for ever and for aye!
72:24 Until when they see what they are threatened with, then shall they surely know who is most weak at helping and fewest in numbers
72:25 Say, 'I know not if what ye are threatened with be nigh, or if my Lord will set for it a term
72:26 He knows the unseen, and He lets no one know His unseen
72:27 save such apostle as He is well pleased with: for, verily, He sends marching before him and behind him a guard!
72:28 That He may know that they have delivered the errands of their Lord, for He compasses what they have, and reckons everything by number
