72 : 1
Yusuf AliSay: 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!
72 : 2
Yusuf Ali´It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord.
72 : 3
Yusuf Ali´And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son.
72 : 4
Yusuf Ali´There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah;
72 : 5
Yusuf Ali´But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah.
72 : 6
Yusuf Ali´True, there were persons among mankind who took shelter with persons among the Jinns, but they increased them in folly.
72 : 7
Yusuf Ali´And they (came to) think as ye thought, that Allah would not raise up any one (to Judgment).
72 : 8
Yusuf Ali´And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires.
72 : 9
Yusuf Ali´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.
72 : 10
Yusuf Ali´And we understand not whether ill is intended to those on earth, or whether their Lord (really) intends to guide them to right conduct.
72 : 11
Yusuf Ali´There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary: we follow divergent paths.
72 : 12
Yusuf Ali´But we think that we can by no means frustrate Allah throughout the earth, nor can we frustrate Him by flight.
72 : 13
Yusuf Ali´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.
72 : 14
Yusuf Ali´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:
72 : 15
Yusuf Ali´But those who swerve,- they are (but) fuel for Hell-fire´-
72 : 16
Yusuf Ali(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.
72 : 17
Yusuf Ali"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.
72 : 18
Yusuf Ali"And the places of worship are for Allah (alone): So invoke not any one along with Allah;
72 : 19
Yusuf Ali"Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd."
72 : 20
Yusuf AliSay: "I do no more than invoke my Lord, and I join not with Him any (false god)."
