72:1  SAY: "I HAVE been informed that a number of jinns had listened; then said: 'We have heard the wondrous Qur'an
72:2  Which guides to the right path; and we have come to believe in it, and will not associate any one with our Lord
72:3  Exalted is the glory of our Lord; He has neither wife nor son
72:4  Certainly the foolish among us say preposterous things of God
72:5  We had in fact thought that men and jinns would never speak a lie about God
72:6  But some men used to seek refuge with some jinns, and this increased their waywardness
72:7  So they began to think, even as you do, that God would not resurrect any one
72:8  We sought to pry into the secrets of the heavens, but found it full of fierce guards and shooting flames
72:9  We sat in observatories to listen; but any one who listened found a shooting star in wait for him
72:10  We do not know if this means ill for the dwellers of the earth, or their Lord wishes guidance for them
72:11  For some of us are upright and some otherwise: Surely we follow different ways
72:12  We realised that we could not weaken the power of God on earth, nor outpace Him by running away
72:13  So when we heard the guidance we believed in it; and he who believes in his Lord will neither fear loss nor force
72:14  Some of us have come to submission, and some of us are iniquitous.'" Those who have submitted have taken the right course
72:15  But those who are iniquitous will be fuel for Hell
72:16  (Say): "If they keep to the right path We shall give them water in abundance to drin
72:17  In order to try them through it. But whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, will be given increasing torment by Him."
72:18  All places of worship are for God; so do not invoke any one with God
72:19  When the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him (the jinns) crowded upon him (to listen)
72:20  Say: "I call on my Lord alone and I do not associate any one with Him."
72:21  Say: "Neither is your loss within my power nor bringing you to guidance."
72:22  Say: "No one can save me from God, nor can I find a place of refuge apart from Him
72:23  Unless I convey from God and deliver His message." For those who disobey God and His Apostle is the fire of Hell, where they will abide for ever
72:24  Until they see what they are promised, when they will understand who is weaker in aid and poorer in numbers
72:25  Say: "I do not know if what is promised you is near, or if my Lord prolongs its term
72:26  He is the knower of the Unknown, and He does not divulge His secret to any on
72:27  Other than an apostle He has chosen, when He makes a sentinel walk in front of him and a sentinel behind
72:28  So that He may know if they have delivered their Lord's messages. He comprehends all that has been given them, and keeps count of everything
