072 - Soorah al-Jinn - (The Jinn) - [Makkee]
[072:014] 'And of us some are Muslims (who have submitted to Allâh, after listening to this Qur'ân), and of us some are Al-Qâsitûn (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path).' And whosoever has embraced Islâm (i.e. has become a Muslim by submitting to Allâh), then such have sought the Right Path."
[072:015] And as for the Qâsitûn (disbelievers who deviated from the Right Path), they shall be firewood for Hell,
[072:016] If they (non-Muslims) had believed in Allâh, and went on the Right Way (i.e. Islâm), We would surely have bestowed on them water (rain) in abundance.
[072:017] That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur'ân, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter a severe torment (i.e. Hell).
[072:018] And the mosques are for Allâh (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Allâh.
[072:019] And when the slave of Allâh (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) stood up invoking Him (his Lord – Allâh) in prayer they (the jinn) just made round him a dense crowd as if sticking one over the other (in order to listen to the Prophet's recitation).
[072:020] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I invoke only my Lord (Allâh Alone), and I associate none as partners along with Him."
[072:021] Say: "It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to the Right Path."
[072:022] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "None can protect me from Allâh's punishment (if I were to disobey Him), nor can I find refuge except in Him.
[072:023] "(Mine is) but conveyance (of the truth) from Allâh and His Messages (of Islâmic Monotheism), and whosoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, then verily, for him is the fire of Hell, he shall dwell therein forever."
[072:024] Till, when they see that which they are promised, then they will know who it is that is weaker concerning helpers and less important concerning numbers.
[072:025] Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I know not whether (the punishment) which you are promised is near or whether my Lord will appoint for it a distant term.
[072:026] "(He Alone is) the All-Knower of the Ghaib (Unseen), and He reveals to none His Ghaib (Unseen)."
[072:027] Except to a Messenger (from mankind) whom He has chosen (He informs him of the Unseen as much as He likes), and then He makes a band of watching guards (angels) to march before him and behind him.
[072:028] [He (Allâh) protects them (the Messengers)], till He sees that they (the Messengers) have conveyed the Messages of their Lord (Allâh). And He (Allâh) surrounds all that which is with them, and He (Allâh) keeps count of all things (i.e. He knows the exact number of everything).
