72:1  (Muhammad), say, "It has been revealed to me that a party of jinn has listened (to the recitation) of the Quran and has told (their people), "We heard an amazing readin
72:2  which guides people to the right path and we believe in it. We shall never consider anyone equal to our Lord
72:3  our Lord is too exalted to have either a wife or son
72:4  The dimwit one (the devil) among us has been telling confused lies about God
72:5  We thought that no man or jinn could ever tell lies about God
72:6  "Certain human beings sought refuge with certain jinn and this increased the rebelliousness of those jinn
72:7  Those people thought, like you, that God would never send down a Messenger
72:8  "We went near the heavens but found it to be full of strong guards and shooting flames
72:9  We used to sit near by and try to listen to the heavens, but shooting flames now await those who try to do that
72:10  We do not know whether by this arrangement God intends benefit and guidance for the people of the earth or only evil
72:11  As for us, some of us are righteous and others are not. We have all followed different ways
72:12  We knew that we could never challenge God whether we stayed on earth or fled elsewhere
72:13  Now that we have listened to the guidance, we believe in it. Whoever believes in his Lord does not need to fear loss or oppression
72:14  Some of us are Muslims and some of us have deviated from the Truth. Whoever has embraced Islam has followed the right guidance
72:15  However, the deviators from the Truth will be the fuel for hell"
72:16  Had they (jinn and mankind) remained steadfast in their religion (Islam), We would certainly have given them abundant water to drin
72:17  as a trial for them. God will make those who disregard the guidance from their Lord suffer increasing torment
72:18  All the parts of the body to be placed on the ground during prostration belong to God
72:19  Do not prostrate before anyone other than Him. When the servant of God (Muhammad) preached (his message) the jinn would all crowd around him
72:20  (Muhammad), say, "I worship only my Lord and do not consider anyone equal to Him"
72:21  Say, "I do not possess any power to harm or benefit you"
72:22  Say, "No one can protect me from God, nor can I find any place of refuge but with him
72:23  My only (means of protection) is to convey the message of God. Whoever disobeys God and His Messenger will go to hell, wherein he will live forever"
72:24  (On the Day of Judgment) when the disbelievers witness that with which they have been threatened, they will then know whose helpers are weaker and fewer in number
72:25  (Muhammad), say, "I do not know whether that with which you have been threatened is close by or whether my Lord will prolong the time of its coming
72:26  He knows the unseen and He does not allow anyone to know His secrets except those of His Messengers whom He chooses
72:27  He causes angelic guards to march before and after him
72:28  (Messenger) so that He would know that the Messengers have conveyed the message of their Lord. He encompasses all that is with them and He keeps a precise account of all things"
