Did you notice?

72:1  Say (O Messenger): "It has been revealed to me that a company of the jinn gave ear (to my recitation of the Qur’an), then (when they returned to their people) they said: ‘We have indeed heard a wonderful Qur’an
72:2  ‘Guiding to what is right in belief and action and so we have believed in it; and we (affirm that we) will not associate any as partner with our Lord
72:3  ‘And that He – exalted is the majesty of our Lord – has taken neither consort nor child
72:4  ‘And that the foolish among us uttered an enormity against God
72:5  ‘And that (we were mistaken when) we thought that humankind and jinn would never speak a falsehood against God
72:6  ‘(But we have come to see that) there have indeed been men from among humankind who took refuge in some men from among the jinn, and so (the former) increased them (the latter) in conceit, rebellion and wrongdoing
72:7  ‘And they (those men) have thought, as you have thought, that God would never raise anyone (as Messenger from among them)
72:8  ‘But now when we sought to reach heaven, we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires (shooting-stars)
72:9  ‘We used to be established in position to overhear (its inhabitants); but now whoever attempts to listen finds a flaming fire in wait for him
72:10  ‘We (being prevented from overhearing) did not know whether evil is intended for those who live on the earth or their Lord wills for them right guidance and good
72:11  ‘There are among us such as are righteous (in conduct and apt to believe) and there are those who are otherwise. We have been sects with divergent paths
72:12  ‘We have come to know that we can by no means frustrate God (in His will on the earth), nor can we frustrate Him by flight
72:13  ‘And when we heard the guidance (embodied in the Qur’an), we (immediately) believed in it. Whoever believes in his Lord has no fear of loss (of being wronged in return for his faith and for the good deeds required by faith), or disgrace
72:14  ‘And among us are some who have wholly submitted to God, just as there are among us some who have deviated into disobedience to God. Whoever has submitted to God wholly, then such have sought and attained to right guidance (in belief and action)
72:15  ‘But as for those who have deviated into disobedience to God, they have become firewood for Hell.’"
72:16  If they (humankind and jinn) followed the (Right) Road (of Islam, without deviation), We would certainly grant them water (and provision) in abundance
72:17  We try them in that (which We grant them). Whoever turns away from his Lord’s Reminder (His Book of instruction), He will drive him into an ever-growing punishment (enveloping him in its severity)
72:18  All places of worship (and all parts of the body with which one prostrates ) are for God, and all worship is due to Him alone, so do not worship anyone along with God
72:19  Yet, when God’s servant rises to pray, they (the polytheists) are all but upon him in swarms (with loud, derisive shouting to prevent his recitation of the Qur’an being heard)
72:20  Say: "I worship only my Lord and do not associate anyone as partner with Him."
72:21  Say: "It is not in my power to cause you harm or bring you good by guiding you (to the Straight Path)."
72:22  Say: "No one could ever protect me from God (if I were to disobey Him), nor could I find a refuge except in Him
72:23  "(What I can and must do is) only to convey (the truth) from God and His Messages." And whoever disobeys God and His Messenger, for him there is surely the fire of Hell, to abide therein forever
72:24  (Let them continue to see you as few in number and weak and therefore belittle you, but) when they see what (the Fire) which they are promised, they will come to know who is really weaker in helpers and fewer in number
72:25  Say: "I do not know whether (your coming face to face with) what you are promised is near, or whether my Lord sets for it a distant term."
72:26  (He alone is) the Knower of the Unseen (what lies beyond human perception), and He does not disclose His Unseen to anyon
72:27  Except to a Messenger whom He has chosen (and is well-pleased with – He informs him of the Unseen as much as He wills –); and He dispatches a watchful guard before him (between him and his audience) and a watchful guard behind him (between him and the origin of the Revelation)
72:28  In order that He may establish that they (the Messengers) have for certain conveyed the messages of their Lord. He encompasses all that they have (of the Revelation), and He has recorded everything one by one
