72:1  Say, "It has been revealed to me that a company of the jinn listened, and they said, "Surely we have heard a wonderful Recital (Quran)
72:2  "Guiding to the right way. So we believe in it, and we will not join any one with our Lord (in worship)
72:3  "And that He, exalted be the majesty of our Lord, has not taken a consort, nor a son
72:4  "The foolish amongst us used to invent extravagant things against Allah
72:5  "And lo! We thought (or think) that men and jinn did not (or ought not to) utter a lie against Allah
72:6  "And, indeed, persons from among men used to seek refuge with persons from among jinn, so they increased them in wrongdoing (or folly or revolt)
72:7  "And they thought as you think, that Allah would not raise anyone (to be judged)
72:8  "And we sought to reach heaven, but we found it filled with strong guards and flaming fires (or meteors)
72:9  "And we used to sit in some high hidden places therein to steal a hearing, but he who would try to listen now would find a flame lying in wait for him
72:10  "We know not whether evil is meant for those who are on earth or whether their Lord means to bring them good
72:11  "And some of us are righteous and others of us are far from that: we are sects following different ways
72:12  "But we know that we cannot escape (or frustrate) Allah in the earth, nor can we escape (or frustrate) Him by flight
72:13  "And when we heard the guidance, we believed in it (or accepted it); whoever believes in his Lord, he neither fears loss nor oppression (injustice or disgrace)
72:14  "Some of us are those who have Surrendered (to Allah), and some of us are deviators. Those who have Surrender have surely taken the right path purposefully
72:15  "As for the deviators, they are the fuel of Hell:"
72:16  If they should keep to the right way, We would certainly give them to drink of abundant water
72:17  "So that We might test them therewith. And whoever turns aside from the remembrance of his Lord, He will afflict him with a severe penalty
72:18  The places of worship are only Allah´s, therefore call not upon any one along with Allah
72:19  And yet when the servant of Allah stood up in prayer to Him, they crowded almost stifling him
72:20  Say, "I only call upon my Lord, and I do not associate any one with Him."
72:21  Say, "I do not control for you evil or good."
72:22  Say, "Surely no one can protect me against Allah, nor can I find besides Him any place of refug
72:23  72:23."Unless I proclaim what I receive from Allah and His messages; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger surely he shall have the fire of Hell to abide therein for ever
72:24  Until when they see what they are promised, then shall they know who it is that is weaker in helpers and fewer in number
72:25  Say, "I do not know whether that which you are promised be nigh or whether my Lord will appoint for it a distant term
72:26  He is the Knower of the unseen! And He reveals unto none His secrets
72:27  Except messengers whom He has chosen; and then He makes a guard to go before him and after him
72:28  So that He may know that they have truly delivered the messages of their Lord. He encompasses what is with them and He keeps count of all things
