72:1  Say: “It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened (to the Quran) and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Quran.’”
72:2  “It guides to the right course (maturity/perfection), so we have believed in it. And we will never associate partners to our Rabb!”
72:3  “Indeed, exalted is the nobleness of our Rabb; He has not taken a wife or a son!”
72:4  “Our inadequate understanding has been making us claim foolish things about Allah!”
72:5  “We had thought that mankind and the jinn would never speak a lie about Allah.”
72:6  “And yet there were men and women from mankind who sought refuge in men and women from the jinn, thereby increasing (provoking each other) in excessive (carnal) behavior.”
72:7  “And they had thought, as you thought, that Allah would never resurrect (ba’th) anyone.” (This verse indicates that jinn, like humans, have no proficiency pertaining to life after death/resurrection.)
72:8  “And we touched the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards (forces) and burning flames (rays that impeded our judgment).”
72:9  “And we used to take up positions therein to listen, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.”
72:10  And we do not know whether evil is intended for those on earth (body) or whether their Rabb intends for them a right course (the maturity to observe the reality). (This verse is a clear proof that the jinn have no knowledge of how people will live; how their essential composition of Names will manifest in their lives and what their purpose of manifesting in the sight of Allah is.)
72:11  “And among us are the righteous, and among us are those who are below (the righteous state); we are of various ways (different breeds/species/races; a cosmopolitan community of different make-up and understanding).”
72:12  “And we have become certain that we can never invalidate Allah’s command upon earth, nor can we escape Him by flight.”
72:13  “When we heard the guidance (Quran), we believed it was the reality. And whoever believes in his Rabb as his own reality, will not fear any deprivation (of his rights) or derogation.”
72:14  “And among us are those in submission, and among us are wrongdoers who rebel against the commands. And those who submit are the aspirants of the fullness of the reality.”
72:15  “But as for the wrongdoers who disobey the commands, they will be firewood for Hell!”
72:16  If they had walked upon the path (to their reality), surely We would have watered them with the water (of knowledge and gnosis).
72:17  We would have tried them with it, to reveal their true nature. And whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Rabb, He will subject him to an increasing suffering!
72:18  Indeed, the places of prostration are for Allah. So do not (while in the state of prostration) turn to things besides Allah!
72:19  Whenever Abdullah (the servant of Allah – Muhammad [saw]) stands to turn to Him, they crowd around and stifle him!
72:20  Say, “I turn only to (and ask only from) my Rabb! Never will I associate others to He who comprises my essence!”
72:21  Say, “I can neither give you harm nor form the maturity in you to experience the reality (these are things for Allah to manifest through you)!”
72:22  Say, “For none can save me from Allah and there is no place of refuge besides Him!”
72:23  Except for what Allah reveals and His risalahs (the knowledge He discloses through His Rasuls)! So, whoever disobeys Allah and His Rasul, for him there is Fire in which he will abide forever!
72:24  But when they see the thing that they have been promised (death), they will understand who the minority and the helpless are!
72:25  Say, “I do not know whether what you have been promised is near or whether my Rabb has set for it a long period.”
72:26  He knows the unknown! And He does not disclose His Unknown (Absolute Essence) to anyone;
72:27  Except for a chosen-purified Rasul! And indeed, He places guards in front and behind him (the Rasul)!
72:28  That they may know that they have conveyed the disclosed knowledge of their Rabb. He has encompassed whatever is with them and recorded everything in detail!
