Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar rendition of Surah The Jinn(al-Jinn)
72:1 Say: It was revealed to me that a group of jinn listened to me. They said: Truly, we heard a wondrous Recitation.
72:2 It guides to the right judgment, so we believed in it. And we will never ascribe partners with our Lord anyone.
72:3 Truly, He, exalted be the grandeur of our Lord. He took no companion (f) to Himself, nor a son,
72:4 and yet a foolish one among us had been saying an outrageous lie about God!
72:5 But we, truly, thought that the humankind, nor the jinn would ever say a lie about God
72:6 and that there had been men of humankind who would take refuge with the masculine of the jinn, but they increased them in vileness.
72:7 And they thought as you thought, that God will never raise up anyone.
72:8 And we stretched towards the heaven. Then, we found it was filled with stern guards and burning flames.
72:9 And we had been sitting in positions having the ability to hear. But whoever listens now will find a burning flame and watchers for him.
72:10 And we were not informed whether the worst was intended for those who are on earth or whether their Lord intended for them right mindedness.
72:11 There are among us, the ones in accord with morality. And there are among us other than that. We had been of ways differing from one another.
72:12 And we, truly, thought that we will never be able to weaken God on the earth and we will never weaken Him by flight.
72:13 So, truly, when we heard the guidance, we believed in it. And whoever believes in his Lord, he will fear neither meagerness nor vileness.
72:14 And, truly, we are the ones who submit to God. Among us there are the ones who swerve from justice. And whoever submitted to God, then, those sought right mindedness.
72:15 As for the ones who swerve from justice, they had been as firewood for hell.
72:16 If they went straight on the way, We would have satiated them with copious water
72:17 so that We try them in it. But whoever turns aside from the Remembrance of his Lord, He will dispatch him to a rigorous punishment.
72:18 Truly, the places of prostration belong to God so call not to anyone with God.
72:19 And, truly, when the servant of God stood up, calling to Him, they be about to swarm upon him.
72:20 Say: Truly, I call only to my Lord, and I ascribe not as partners with Him anyone.
72:21 Say: Truly, I possess not the power to hurt nor to bring right mindedness for you.
72:22 Say: Truly, none would grant me protection from God—not anyone! And I will never find other than Him that which is a haven
72:23 unless I be delivering messages from God, His messages. And whoever disobeys God and His Messenger, then, for him is the fire of hell, ones who will dwell in it forever, eternally.
72:24 Until when they saw what they are promised, then, they will know who is weaker of ones who help and fewer in number.
72:25 Say: I am not informed if what you are promised is near, or if my Lord will assign for it a space of time.
72:26 He is The One Who Knows of the unseen! And He discloses not the unseen to anyone,
72:27 but a Messenger with whom He was content. Then, truly, He dispatches in advance of him and from behind him, watchers
72:28 that He know that they expressed the messages of their Lord. He enclosed whatever is with them and He counted everything with numbers.
