72:1  Say, 'It was revealed to me that a band of jinn listened in, and said, 'We have heard a wondrous Quran
72:2  It guides to rectitude, so we have believed in it; and we will never associate anyone with our Lord
72:3  And Exalted is the Grandeur of our Lord—He never had a mate, nor a child
72:4  But the fools among us used to say nonsense about God
72:5  And we thought that humans and jinn would never utter lies about God
72:6  Some individual humans used to seek power through some individual jinn, but they only increased them in confusion
72:7  They thought, as you thought, that God would never resurrect anyone
72:8  We probed the heaven, and found it filled with stern guards and projectiles
72:9  We used to take up positions to listen in; but whoever listens now finds a projectile in wait for him
72:10  We do not know whether ill is intended for those on earth, or if their Lord intends goodness for them
72:11  Some of us are righteous, but some of us are less than that; we follow divergent paths
72:12  We realized that we cannot defeat God on earth, and that we cannot escape Him by fleeing
72:13  And when we heard the guidance, we believed in it. Whoever believes in his Lord fears neither loss, nor burden
72:14  Among us are those who are submitting, and among us are the compromisers. As for those who have submitted—it is they who pursue rectitude
72:15  But as for the compromisers—they will be firewood for Hell.''
72:16  Had they kept true to the Path, We would have given them plenty water to drink
72:17  To test them with it. Whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will direct him to torment ever mounting
72:18  The places of worship are for God. So do not call, besides God, upon anyone else
72:19  And when the servant of God got up calling on Him, they almost fell on him in a mass
72:20  Say, 'I pray only to my Lord, and I never associate anyone with Him.'
72:21  Say, 'It is not in my power to harm you, nor to bring you to right conduct.'
72:22  Say, 'No one can protect me from God, and I will not find any refuge except with Him
72:23  Except for a proclamation from God and His messages. He who defies God and His Messenger—for him is the Fire of Hell, in which they will dwell forever.'
72:24  Until, when they see what they were promised, they will know who is weaker in helpers, and fewer in numbers
72:25  Say, 'I do not know whether what you are promised is near, or whether my Lord will extend it for a period.'
72:26  The Knower of the Invisible; He does not disclose His Invisible to anyone
72:27  Except to a Messenger of His choosing. He then dispatches guards before him and behind him
72:28  That He may know that they have conveyed the messages of their Lord. He encompasses what they have, and has tallied everything by number
