72:1  Say, (O' Muhammad), "It has been revealed unto me that a group of the Jinn listened (attentively to the recitation of the ‘Qurʾān’). (When returning back to their fellow citizens), they said: “Indeed, we have heard an extraordinary recitation.”
72:2  It leads into righteousness. Since we have believed in it, we shall never join in worship anyone or anything with our Lord, (the Lord of all the worlds).
72:3  Verily, Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord. He has not taken a wife or a son for himself.
72:4  Indeed, the imprudent one (-Iblis-), among us has been speaking blasphemous words against Allâh.
72:5  Indeed, we thought that mankind and Jinn would never speak words of blasphemy against Allâh.
72:6  Indeed, there were men from mankind who used to seek refuge with certain individuals of the jinn. Thus, those individuals of the jinn increased them in perplexity.
72:7  Indeed, those who lack faith in Allâh among mankind thought, as we thought, that Allâh would never send any ‘Messenger’.
72:8  Indeed, we touched the heavens. Thus, we found it filled with vigorous guards and meteors.
72:9  Indeed, we used to sit in some of its seats and try to listen, but whoever tries to listen will find a meteor lying in wait form him.
72:10  Indeed, we know not whether evil is prescribed for those who are living on the earth, or whether their Lord intends to lead them into the right path.
72:11  As for us, some of us are righteous while others are not. Indeed, we are denominations, following different ways.
72:12  We have come to know with certainty that we could never frustrate the power of Allâh on the earth, neither could we frustrate His power by flight.
72:13  Indeed, after hearing the divine guidance, (-this ‘Qurʾān’ -), we believed in it. Thus, whoever believes in his Lord should not fear deprivation or injustice.
72:14  As for us, some of us have submitted (themselves entirely to the authority of Allâh), while others have deviated from the Truth. Whoever submits (himself entirely to the authority of Allâh), they are the ones who have sought rectitude.
72:15  However, as for the ones who deviated (from the Truth) will be the firewood for ‘Gehenna’.
72:16  If they, (- the Pagan Arabs-), had followed the right path, We would certainly have given to them abundant water to drink,
72:17  So that We may tempt them with it. But if it happens that anyone turns away from celebrating the praises of his Lord and declaring His divine glory, He will cause him to be subjected to a severe chastisement.
72:18  Mosques are meant only for Allâh. Thus, do not implore or pray to anyone along with Allâh.
72:19  Yet when the Obedient Devotee of Allâh, (‘Muhammad’), stood up imploring and praying to Allâh, they, (the Jinn who heard the recitation of the ‘Qurʾān’), crowded closely together around him.
72:20  Say: "Indeed, I only implore and pray to my Lord, not associating anyone or anything with Him.”
72:21  Say: "Surely, I have no power to harm you or to make you attain righteousness.
72:22  Say: "Indeed, no one can protect me against the (will of) Allâh, neither can I find, apart from Him, any place of refuge.
72:23  (It is incumbent on me) to convey (& promulgate) the Message of Allâh. Whoever disobeys Allâh and His ‘Messenger’, then surely, for him is the fire of ‘Hell’. He will abide therein.
72:24  (They will continue in their disbelief) until the day when they will see that which they have been threatened with, then they will find out who is really weaker in power, and fewer in number.
72:25  Say: "I know not whether that which you have been threatened with is near, or if my Lord will appoint for it a distant term.”
72:26  Lo! Allâh is the Knowing of the Unseen. He reveals not His Knowledge of the Unseen to anyone.
72:27  Except a messenger whom He chooses. Indeed, He places a guard to go before and after him,
72:28  That he may know that they had truly delivered the messages of their Lord, and that He encompasses that which is with them and records the number of everything.”
