Section 1

[Jinn 72:1] Proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that some jinns attentively listened to my recitation, so they said, ‘We have heard a unique Qur’an.’

[Jinn 72:2] ‘That guides to the path of goodness, we have therefore accepted faith in it; and we shall never ascribe anyone as a partner to our Lord.’

[Jinn 72:3] ‘And that our Lord’s Majesty is Supreme - He has neither chosen a wife nor a child.’

[Jinn 72:4] ‘And that the fool among us used to utter false exaggerations against Allah.’

[Jinn 72:5] ‘Whereas we thought that men and jinns would never fabricate a lie against Allah!’

[Jinn 72:6] ‘And indeed some men among humans used to take the protection of some men among jinns, so it further increased their haughtiness.’

[Jinn 72:7] ‘And that they assumed, like you humans assume, that Allah would not send any Noble Messenger.’

[Jinn 72:8] ‘And we reached the sky, so we found it strongly guarded and filled with comets.’

[Jinn 72:9] ‘And that we sometimes used to sit in some places in the sky, to listen; so whoever now listens finds a fiery comet waiting for him.’

[Jinn 72:10] ‘And we do not know whether harm is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends goodness for them.’

[Jinn 72:11] ‘And among us some are virtuous and some are the other type; we are split into several branches.’

[Jinn 72:12] ‘And we are certain that we cannot defeat Allah in the earth, nor can we run out of His grasp.’

[Jinn 72:13] ‘And that when we heard the guidance, we accepted faith in it; so whoever accepts faith in his Lord, has no fear - neither of any loss nor of any injustice.’

[Jinn 72:14] ‘And that some among us are Muslims and some are the unjust; and whoever has accepted Islam – it is they who have thought rightly.’

[Jinn 72:15] ‘And as for the unjust - they are the fuel of hell.’ ”

[Jinn 72:16] And proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I have received the divine revelation that ‘Had they remained upright on the straight path, We would have given them abundant water.’

[Jinn 72:17] ‘In order to test them with it; and whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Lord – He will put him in a punishment that keeps on increasing.’

[Jinn 72:18] ‘And that the mosques are for Allah only – therefore do not worship anyone along with Allah.’

[Jinn 72:19] ‘And that when Allah’s bondman stood up to worship Him, the jinns had almost crowded upon him.’ ”

Section 2

[Jinn 72:20] Say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I worship only Allah, and I do not ascribe any partner to Him.”

[Jinn 72:21] Proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I am not the master of any harm or benefit for you.”

[Jinn 72:22] Say, “No one will ever save me from Allah, and other than Him, I will not find any refuge.”

[Jinn 72:23] “I only convey the commands from Allah, and His messages; and whoever disobeys the commands of Allah and His Noble Messenger – then indeed for him is the fire of hell, in which they will remain for ever and ever.”

[Jinn 72:24] Till the time when they will see what they are promised -  so they will now come to know whose aide is weak, and who is lesser in number.

[Jinn 72:25] Say (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him), “I do not know whether what you are promised is close or if my Lord will postpone it for a while.”

[Jinn 72:26] The All Knowing of all the hidden does not give anyone the control over His secrets.

[Jinn 72:27] Except to His chosen Noble Messengers – so He appoints guards in front and behind him. (Allah gave the knowledge of the hidden to the Holy Prophet – peace and blessings be upon him.)

[Jinn 72:28] In order to see that they have conveyed the messages of their Lord – and His knowledge encompasses all whatever they have, and He has kept all things accounted for.
