John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Jinn(al-Jinn)
72:1 SAY: It hath been revealed to me that a company of DJINN listened, and said, - "Verily, we have heard a marvellous discourse (Koran)
72:2 It guideth to the truth; wherefore we believed in it, and we will not henceforth join any being with our Lord
72:3 And He, - may the majesty of our Lord be exalted! - hath taken no spouse neither hath he any offspring
72:4 But the foolish among us hath spoken of God that which is unjust
72:5 And we verily thought that no one amongst men or Djinn would have uttered a lie against God
72:6 There are indeed people among men, who have sought for refuge unto people among Djinn: but they only increased their folly
72:7 And they thought, as ye think, that God would not raise any from the dead
72:8 And the Heavens did we essay, but found them filled with a mighty garrison, and with flaming darts
72:9 And we sat on some of the seats to listen, but whoever listeneth findeth an ambush ready for him of flaming darts
72:10 And truly we know not whether evil be meant for them that are on earth, or whether their Lord meaneth guidance for them
72:11 And there are among us good, and others among us of another kind; - we are of various sorts
72:12 And verily we thought that no one could weaken God on earth, neither could we escape from him by flight
72:13 Wherefore as soon as we had heard 'the guidance' we believed in it; and whoever believeth in his Lord, need not fear either loss or wrong
72:14 There are some among us who have resigned themselves to God (the Muslims); and there are others of us who have gone astray. And whoso resigneth himself to God pursueth the way of truth
72:15 But they who go astray from it shall be fuel for Hell."
72:16 Moreover, if they (the Meccans) keep straight on in that way, we will surely give them to drink of abundant waters
72:17 That we may prove them thereby: but whoso withdraweth from the remembrance of his Lord, him will He send into a severe torment
72:18 It is unto God that the temples are set apart: call not then on any other therein with God
72:19 When the servant of God stood up to call upon Him, the djinn almost jostled him by their crowds
72:20 SAY: I call only upon my Lord, and I join no other being with Him
72:21 SAY: No control have I over what may hurt or benefit you
72:22 SAY: Verily none can protect me against God; Neither shall I find any refuge beside Him
72:23 My sole work is preaching from God, and His message: and for such as shall rebel against God and his apostle is the fire of Hell! they shall remain therein alway, - for ever
72:24 Until they see their threatened vengeance they will be perverse! but then shall they know which side was the weakest in a protector and the fewest in number
72:25 SAY: I know not whether that with which ye are threatened be nigh, or whether my Lord hath assigned it to a distant day
72:26 He knoweth the secret, nor doth He divulge his secret to any
72:27 Except to that Apostle who pleaseth Him; and before him and behind him He maketh a guard to march
72:28 That He may know if his Apostles have verily delivered the messages of their Lord: and He embraceth in his knowledge all their ways, and taketh count of all that concerneth them
