Say, "It has been revealed to me that a group of spirits listened and said, 'We have heard a wondrous Recital!
It guides to true direction, so we surely believe in it; and we do not equate anyone with our Lord.
And exalted is the majesty of our Lord, who takes neither wife nor son.
And the fools among us used to declaim extravagant lies against God;
but we think no human or spirit should speak falsely of God.
Yet there were individual humans who resorted to individual spirits; but that increased their folly.
And they came to suppose, as did you, that God would resurrect no one.
And we pried into the secrets of heaven, but found it filled with steadfast guards and bluing fires.
â€˜And we used to sit in some of its seats to listen: but whoever listens now' will find a blaze lying in wait for him.
And we do not know if ill is intended for the inhabitants of earth; or if their Lord intends right direction for them.
And some of us are good, and some of us are otherwise: we are on divergent paths.
And we consider ourselves unable to thwart God on earth; nor can we thwart God by fleeing.
And when we heard the Guidance, we believed in it: and whoever believes in their Lord will never be shortchanged and will not be oppressed.
And among us are some who surrender to God, and some who act unjustly. And those who have surrendered to God, they seek right direction;
while those who act unjustly, they are the firewood of hell.â€
And [say] that if they had gone straight on the Path, We would have given them plenty of water,
that We might try them thereby. And whoever turn away from mention of their Lord, God sends to a torment severe.
And [say] that the houses of worship are for the only God, so do not invoke anyone together with God;
and that when the servant of God stands to all upon God. they have nearly become suffocating to him.
Say, â€œI call only on my Lord. with whom I associate no one."
Say, "I have no power in me to do you ill or guide you right.â€
Say. "No one can deliver me from God, and I will find no refuge apart from God,
"except reporting from God and Godâ€™s messages. And for whoever disobeys God and God's envoy, there is the fire of hell, wherein they remain forever,"
until, that is, they see what they were promised: and they will know who is weaker in helpers and who is smaller in numbers.
Say, "I do not know if what you are promised is near, or if my Lord has set it a distant time,
â€œknowing the unseen: God does not reveal the unseen mystery divine to anyone at all,
â€œexcept a Messenger with whom God is pleased; and God sends forth observers before and behind him,
â€œin order to know if he has delivered the messages of their Lord. And God encompasses all that is with them, and takes account of every single thing."
