72:1  Say: "It has been revealed to me that an assembly of jinns' listened (to the Quran). They said, ‘Verily, we have really heard a Wonderful Recitation (this Quran)
72:2  " ‘It gives guidance to the Right (Path,) and we have believed in it (what is read, i.e., the Quran): We shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord
72:3  " ‘And unequaled is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son
72:4  “ ‘And that the foolish ones among us, who used to say terrible and worst lies against Allah
72:5  “ ‘And verily, we do think that no man or spirit (among jinns') should say anything that is untrue against Allah
72:6  “ ‘(It is) true, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons (other personifications) among the jinns', but they (only) increased them in their mistakes
72:7  " ‘And they (used to) think as you thought, that Allah would not raise up anyone (to Judgment)
72:8  " ‘And we have wanted to reach the (secrets of) heavens; But we found it filled with strong (and unfailing) guards and flaming fires (and shooting stars)
72:9  " ‘And verily, we used indeed, to sit there in (the hidden) places, to listen in but anyone who listens now will find a flaming fire (and shooting stars) watching him in hiding (to drive him away)
72:10  " ‘And we do not understand whether suffering is intended for those on earth, or whether their Lord intends to guide them to the right conduct
72:11  " ‘There are some among us who are righteous, and some (that are) the opposite:— We are assemblies (of jinns') having different ways
72:12  " ‘But we think that we cannot resist Allah all through the earth, nor can we resist Him by flight
72:13  " ‘And indeed for us, since we have listened to the Guidance, (from the Quran), we have believed therein: And anyone who believes in his Lord (he or she) has no fear, neither of a decrease in reward for the good deeds, nor an increase in punishment for the sins
72:14  " ‘And among us are some who submit their wills (to Allah as Muslims), and some who wander away from justice. Now those who submit their wills (as Muslims)— They have sought the right Path
72:15  " ‘And those who wander away (from the right Path)— They (are only fuel for fire of Hell ’ "&mdash
72:16  (And Allah’s Message is): "If they (the pagan) had (only) believed in Allah and walked on the (right) Path, we should certainly have granted (in kindness) to them (the) bountiful rain
72:17  "That We might try them by that (means), and if anyone turns away from remembering his Lord, he will cause (for himself) to undergo a severe penalty
72:18  "And the places of worship are for Allah (Alone): So do not pray to anyone along with Allah
72:19  "And when the one devoted (the Prophet) to Allah stands forward to pray to Him, they (the jinns') just make around him a dense crowd as if sticking to one over the other (to listen)."
72:20  Say: "I do no more than call upon my Lord, and I do not join any (false gods) with Him."
72:21  Say: "It is not in my power to cause you harm, nor to bring you to right conduct."
72:22  Say: "No one can save me from Allah's punishment, (if I were to disobey Him) nor should I find protection except in Him
72:23  "Unless I proclaim what I receive from Allah and His Messages; For whoever that disobeyed Allah and His Messenger— Then verily, for him (the one who disobeys) is Hell:— He shall live in there forever."
72:24  At length, when they see (with their own eyes) that which they are promised— Then will they know who is the one weakest as (their) helper and least important in point of numbers
72:25  Say: "I do not know whether the (punishment) which you are promised is near or whether my Lord will appoint for it a long time (later)
72:26  "He (Allah, Alone) is All Knowledgeable of the Unseen, (Aalam-ul-Ghaib), nor does He make anyone familiar with His unseen mysteries&mdash
72:27  "Except a messenger whom He has chosen, and then He makes a band of watchers (angels) march before him and behind him
72:28  "That he (the messenger) may know that they have (truly) brought and delivered the Messages of their Lord. And He surrounds (all with mysteries) that are with them, and takes account of every single thing."
