Surah 72

Al Jinn
Surah 72. The Jinn, Spirits

 

72:1 Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur’an). They said, ‘We have really heard a wonderful Recital!
Qul oohiya ilayya annahu istamaAAanafarun mina aljinni faqaloo inna samiAAnaqur-anan AAajaban
72:2 ‘It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord.
Yahdee ila alrrushdi faamannabihi walan nushrika birabbina ahadan
72:3 ‘And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son.
Waannahu taAAala jaddu rabbinama ittakhatha sahibatan wala waladan
72:4 ‘There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah;
Waannahu kana yaqoolu safeehunaAAala Allahi shatatan
72:5 ‘But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah.
Waanna thanannaan lan taqoola al-insu waaljinnu AAala Allahikathiban
72:6 ‘True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly.
Waannahu kana rijalun minaal-insi yaAAoothoona birijalin mina aljinni fazadoohumrahaqan
72:7 ‘And they (came to) think as ye thought, that Allah would not raise up any one (to Judgment).
Waannahum thannoo kama thanantuman lan yabAAatha Allahu ahadan
72:8 ‘And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires.
Waanna lamasna alssamaafawajadnaha muli-at harasan shadeedanwashuhuban
72:9 ‘We used, indeed, to sit there in (hidden) stations, to (steal) a hearing; but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush.
Waanna kunna naqAAudu minhamaqaAAida lilssamAAi faman yastamiAAi al-anayajid lahu shihaban rasadan
72:10 ‘And we understand not whether ill is intended to those on earth, or whether their Lord (really) intends to guide them to right conduct.
Waanna la nadree asharrunoreeda biman fee al-ardi am arada bihim rabbuhumrashadan
72:11 ‘There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths.
Waanna minna alssalihoonawaminna doona thalika kunna tara-iqaqidadan
72:12 ‘But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight.
Wanna thanannaan lan nuAAjiza Allaha fee al-ardi walan nuAAjizahuharaban
72:13 ‘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, either of a short (account) or of any injustice.
Waanna lamma samiAAnaalhuda amanna bihi faman yu/min birabbihifala yakhafu bakhsan wala rahaqan
72:14 ‘Amongst us are some that submit their wills (to Allah), and some that swerve from justice. Now those who submit their wills – they have sought out (the path) of right conduct:
Waanna minna almuslimoonawaminna alqasitoona faman aslama faola-ikataharraw rashadan
72:15 ‘But those who swerve,- they are (but) fuel for Hell-fire’-
Waama alqasitoona fakanoolijahannama hataban
72:16 (And Allah’s Message is): “If they (the Pagans) had (only) remained on the (right) Way, We should certainly have bestowed on them Rain in abundance.
Waallawi istaqamoo AAala alttareeqatilaasqaynahum maan ghadaqan
72:17 “That We might try them by that (means). But if any turns away from the remembrance of his Lord, He will cause him to undergo a severe Penalty.
Linaftinahum feehi waman yuAArid AAanthikri rabbihi yasluk-hu AAathaban saAAadan
72:18 “And the places of worship are for Allah (alone): So invoke not any one along with Allah;
Waanna almasajida lillahi falatadAAoo maAAa Allahi ahadan
72:19 “Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd.”
Waannahu lamma qama AAabdu AllahiyadAAoohu kadoo yakoonoona AAalayhi libadan
72:20 Say: “I do no more than invoke my Lord, and I join not with Him any (false god).”
Qul innama adAAoo rabbee walaoshriku bihi ahadan
72:21 Say: “It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to right conduct.”
Qul innee la amliku lakum darranwala rashadan
72:22 Say: “No one can deliver me from Allah (If I were to disobey Him), nor should I find refuge except in Him,
Qul innee lan yujeeranee mina Allahiahadun walan ajida min doonihi multahadan
72:23 “Unless I proclaim what I receive from Allah and His Messages: for any that disobey Allah and His Apostle,- for them is Hell: they shall dwell therein for ever.”
Illa balaghan mina Allahiwarisalatihi waman yaAAsi Allahawarasoolahu fa-inna lahu nara jahannama khalideenafeeha abadan
72:24 At length, when they see (with their own eyes) that which they are promised,- then will they know who it is that is weakest in (his) helper and least important in point of numbers.
Hatta itha raaw mayooAAadoona fasayaAAlamoona man adAAafu nasiranwaaqallu AAadadan
72:25 Say: “I know not whether the (Punishment) which ye are promised is near, or whether my Lord will appoint for it a distant term.
Qul in adree aqareebun ma tooAAadoonaam yajAAalu lahu rabbee amadan
72:26 “He (alone) knows the Unseen, nor does He make any one acquainted with His Mysteries,-
AAalimu alghaybi fala yuthhiruAAala ghaybihi ahadan
72:27 “Except an apostle whom He has chosen: and then He makes a band of watchers march before him and behind him,
Illa mani irtada min rasoolinfa-innahu yasluku min bayni yadayhi wamin khalfihi rasadan
72:28 “That He may know that they have (truly) brought and delivered the Messages of their Lord: and He surrounds (all the mysteries) that are with them, and takes account of every single thing.”
LiyaAAlama an qad ablaghoo risalatirabbihim waahata bima ladayhim waahsa kullashay-in AAadadan
