          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

072.001

PICKTHAL: Say (O Muhammad): It is revealed unto me that a company of the
Jinn gave ear, and they said: Lo! we have heard a marvellous Qur'an,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.002

PICKTHAL: Which guideth unto righteousness, so we believe in it and we
ascribe no partner unto our Lord.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.003

PICKTHAL: And (we believe) that He - exalted be the glory of our Lord! -
hath taken neither wife nor son,

SHAKIR: And that He-- exalted be the majesty of our Lord-- has not taken a
consort, nor a son:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.004

PICKTHAL: And that the foolish one among us used to speak concerning Allah
an atrocious lie.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.005

PICKTHAL: And lo! we had supposed that humankind and jinn would not speak a
lie concerning Allah -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.006

PICKTHAL: And indeed (O Muhammad) individuals of humankind used to invoke
the protection of individuals of the jinn, so that they increased them in
revolt against Allah);

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.007

PICKTHAL: And indeed they supposed, even as ye suppose, that Allah would
not raise anyone (from the dead) -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.008

PICKTHAL: And (the Jinn who had listened to the Qur'an said): We had sought
the heaven but had found it filled with strong warders and meteors.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.009

PICKTHAL: And we used to sit on places (high) therein to listen. But he who
listeneth now findeth a flame in wait for him;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.010

PICKTHAL: And we know not whether harm is boded unto all who are in the
earth, or whether their Lord intendeth guidance for them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.011

PICKTHAL: And among us there are righteous folk and among us there are far
from that. We are sects having different rules.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.012

PICKTHAL: And we know that we cannot escape from Allah in the earth, nor
can we escape by flight.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.013

PICKTHAL: And when we heard the guidance, we believed therein, and whoso
believeth in his Lord, he feareth neither loss nor oppression.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.014

PICKTHAL: And there are among us some who have surrendered (to Allah) and
there are among us some who are unjust. And whoso hath surrendered to
Allah, such have taken the right path purposefully.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.015

PICKTHAL: And as for those who are unjust, they are firewood for hell.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.016

PICKTHAL: If they (the idolaters) tread the right path, We shall give them
to drink of water in abundance

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.017

PICKTHAL: That We may test them thereby, and whoso turneth away from the
remembrance of his Lord; He will thrust him into ever-growing torment.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.018

PICKTHAL: And the places of worship are only for Allah, so pray not unto
anyone along with Allah.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.019

PICKTHAL: And when the slave of Allah stood up in prayer to Him, they
crowded on him, almost stifling.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.020

PICKTHAL: Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I pray unto Allah only, and ascribe
unto Him no partner.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.021

PICKTHAL: Say: Lo! I control not hurt nor benefit for you.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.022

PICKTHAL: Say: Lo! none can protect me from Allah, nor can I find any
refuge beside Him

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.023

PICKTHAL: (Mine is) but conveyance (of the Truth) from Allah, and His
messages; and whoso disobeyeth Allah and His messenger, lo! his is fire of
hell, wherein such dwell for ever.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.024

PICKTHAL: Till (the day) when they shall behold that which they are
promised (they may doubt); but then they will know (for certain) who is
weaker in allies and less in multitude.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.025

PICKTHAL: Say (O Muhammad, unto the disbelievers): I know not whether that
which ye are promised is nigh, or if my Lord hath set a distant term for
it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.026

PICKTHAL: (He is) the Knower of the Unseen, and He revealeth unto none His
secret,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.027

PICKTHAL: Save unto every messenger whom He hath chosen, and then He maketh
a guard to go before him and a guard behind him

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

072.028

PICKTHAL: That He may know that they have indeed conveyed the messages of
their Lord. He surroundeth all their doings, and He keepeth count of all
things.
