Say, “It has been revealed to me that a company of jinn listened and they said, “ ‘We have indeed heard a wonderful recital
“ ‘It gives guidance to the right way, and we believe in it. We will not join any with our Lord
“ ‘And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord. He has neither wife nor child
“ ‘There were some foolish ones among us who used to speak elaborate lies against God
“ ‘But we think that no human nor jinn should say anything that is untrue about God
“ ‘True, there were men among the humans who sought refuge with men among the jinn, and they increased them in being unwise
“ ‘They think, as you thought, that God would not raise up anyone
“ ‘And we pried into the secrets of heaven, but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires
“ ‘We used to sit there in position to listen, but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching them in ambush
“ ‘And we do not understand whether harm is intended to those on earth, or whether their Lord intends to guide them to right conduct
“ ‘There are among us some who are righteous, and some who are not. We follow different paths
“ ‘But we know that by no means can we stop God throughout the earth, nor can we stop Him by flight
“ ‘And as for us, since we have listened to the guidance, we have accepted it, and any who believes in his Lord has no fear, loss, nor burden
“ ‘Among us are some who submit their will, and some that stray from justice. Now those who submit their will, they have found the right path
“But those who stray, they are fuel for hellfire.
If they had remained on the path, We should certainly have bestowed on them rain in abundance
That We might try them. But if any turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to undergo a severe penalty
“And the places of worship are for God. So do not invoke any one along with God
“Yet when the devotee of God stands forth to invoke Him, they make around him a dense crowd.
Say, “I do no more than invoke my Lord, and I do not join any with Him.
Say, “It is not in my power to cause you harm, nor to bring you to right conduct.
Say, “No one can save me from God, nor would I find refuge except with Him
“Unless I proclaim what I receive from God and His messages. For any who goes against God and His messenger, for them is hell. They will dwell therein forever.
Then, when they see that which they are promised, then will they know who it is that is weakest in support and least in numbers
Say, “I do not know whether that which you are promised is near, nor whether my Lord will appoint for it a distant term
“He knows the unknown, and He does not show anyone His unknown
“Except a messenger whom He has chosen, and then He makes a group of watchers march before him and behind him
“That He may know that they have brought and delivered the Messages of their Lord, and He surrounds all that are with them, and takes account of every single thing.
