This surah was revealed in Makkah.

AYAH 1:

قُلْ أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ أَنَّهُ اسْتَمَعَ نَفَرٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَقَالُوا إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا قُرْآنًاعَجَبًا 

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns listened (to this Qur'ân). They said: 'Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Qur'ân)! 

(Al-Jinn 72:1)

This ayah has many benefits; the first is that the ayah is telling you that the Jinn are a creation of Allah (SWT).

They are a separate species from mankind.

They were created from smokeless fire.

The angels were created from light, jinns from smokeless fire, and mankind from clay.

Aisha reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: "The Angels were born out of light and the Jinns were born out of the spark of fire and Adam was born as he has been defined (in the Qur'an) for you (i.e. he is fashioned out of clay)."

[Sahih Muslim, Book 42, Chapter 12 Hadith #7134]

And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.

(Al-Hijr 15:26) Sahih International

The other lesson is that the Jinn have the faculty of seeing and hearing.

And the Jinn eat, sleep, drink, get married and have kids just like us.

The only difference is that they live longer than we live and have supernatural powers as a test for them.

An Ifrit (strong) from the jinns said: "I will bring it to you before you rise from your place (council). And verily, I am indeed strong, and trustworthy for such work."

(An-Naml 27:39)

This is evidence that the Jinn are tested by supernatural power but many of them fail this test because they use the supernatural power to cause mischief on earth.

Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was sent to mankind and jinn; this is why the jinn said "we heard a wonderful recitation".

AYAH 2

يَهْدِي إِلَى الرُّشْدِ فَآمَنَّا بِهِ ۖ وَلَن نُّشْرِكَ بِرَبِّنَا أَحَدًا

It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allâh).

(Al-Jinn 72:2)

The other lesson is that the jinn know that shirk is wrong and they are able to differentiate right from wrong, they know that shirk is wrong.

The other lesson is that Jinn were given a free will to choose from right and wrong.

Angels, animals do not have a free will but man and jinn were both given a free will.

They made the decision to single out Allah (SWT) for worship to prove that the jinn have a free will in the following verse.

And (remember) when We said to the angels; "Prostrate to Adam." So they prostrated except Iblis (Satan). He was one of the jinns; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblis) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zalimun (polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc).

(Al-Kahf 18:50)

Iblees rebelled against his Lord.

The angels bow downed to Adam (AS) without rebelling because they have no free will.

Ibless rebelled against his lord because he was given free will to choose for himself.

The majority of men use their freewill to disobey Allah (SWT).

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie.

(Al-An'am 6:116)

The majority people will always be evil and chose evil.

AYAH 3:
وَأَنَّهُ تَعَالَىٰ جَدُّ رَبِّنَا مَا اتَّخَذَ صَاحِبَةً وَلَا وَلَدًا

And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children).

(Al-Jinn 72:3)

The infidels say that Allah (SWT) "beget" a son; begets mean to have intercourse.

Allah (SWT) said He does not have a wife nor a son to accuse Allah (SWT) of fathering a son is not a simple matter.

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything.

(Al-An'am 6:101)

Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins, That they ascribe a son (or offspring or children) to the Most Beneficent (Allah)
To accuse Allah (SWT) of fathering a son is not a simple matters

But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Most Beneficent (Allah) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children).

(Maryam 19:90-92)

AYAH 4:
وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطًا

'And that the foolish among us [i.e. Iblîs (Satan) or the polytheists amongst the jinns] used to utter against Allâh that which was wrong and not right.

(Al-Jinn 72:4)

There are from among jinn and mankind who are guilty of lying against Allah (SWT).

Who fight against the truth and they lie regarding Allah (SWT).

And so We have appointed for every Prophet enemies - Shayatin (devils) among mankind and jinns, inspiring one another with adorned speech as a delusion (or by way of deception). If your Lord had so willed, they would not have done it, so leave them alone with their fabrications.

(Al-An'am 6:112)

The enemies of the haqq can be found among the jinn and human beings.

The Jinns Admit to lying on Allah (SWT)

HOW DO PEOPLE LIE ON ALLAH (SWT)

1- They accuse Allah (SWT) of begetting a son like the Christians claim.

2- They accuse Allah (SWT) of having partners.

Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilah (God -Allah). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall the disbelievers among them.

(Al-Ma'idah 5:73)

3- They claim that Allah (SWT) appeared on earth in the form of a man like the Christians claim.

The Nation of Islam (NOI) say Allah (SWT) appeared in the form of Farad Muhammad.

This man used to sell drugs and he was arrested, finger printed, his mug shot was taken by the police.

It is not given to any human being that Allah should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration, or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise.

(Ash-Shura 42:51)

The Nation of Islam and Christians lie on Allah (SWT).

4- They describe Allah (SWT) with words that are not appropriate.

For example, the Jews say Allah (SWT) is poorbut they are rich

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)."

(Aali Imran 3:181)

Another example christain who claim that Allah (SWT) repented that He made man.

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

(Genesis 6:6) King James Version

5- They cast doubt of existence of Allah (SWT).

The agnostic is an atheist who is a coward.

6- The atheist who deny the existence of his Creator.

7- The pantheist (pan means all) says "everything is Allah and that there is no difference between the creation and Creator" (So pantheists lie on Allah (SWT) as well)
They claim snake, the elephate, everything is Allah (SWT)

8- The Sufi Says: "Allah (SWT) is everywhere" because he believes in "Wahdat al Wujjud" which is the notion of oneness of being.

They believe that Allah (SWT) possess them and they become Allah (SWT).

9- People also lie on Allah (SWT) by stating it is minor kufr to dismantle the sharia.

- This is the Aqeeda of the Saudi Salafis. (Madkhalis)

"Be you not exalted against me, but come to me as Muslims (true believers who submit to Allah with full submission)'"

(An-Naml 27:31)

10- Giving your imams the attributes of Allah (SWT)

This is the plight of the shady Shia.

They claim that "the universe is subservient to our imams".

AYAH 4

وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطًا

'And that the foolish among us [i.e. Iblîs (Satan) or the polytheists amongst the jinns] used to utter against Allâh that which was wrong and not right

(Al-Jinn 72:4)

And that our foolish one has been saying about Allah an excessive transgression.

The Peak of wisdom is to fear Allah (SWT)

Sufyan Ath-Thawri from Abdur Rahman Bin Abbas said Ayas Abu Yahya related to me from Abdullah ibn Mas'ud (RA) he used to say in his sermon

"The best provision is piety and the peak of wisdom is to fear Allah".

[Bayhaqi in Sha'ab al Imaan (1/470) and Sunan al-Kubra]

When a person is a fool, they always have a wrong Aqeeda.

Whenever Allah (SWT) wants good for you, He gives you the proper understanding of the deen.

Narrated Muaiwiya Abi sufyan delivering a sermon: He said: i Heard the prophet saying: If Allah desires good for someone, He bestows on him. the gift of understanding of the Qur'an and Sunnah {deen}. i am only a distributor, and Allah is the Giver.

(Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 92 Hadith 415}

AYAH 5:
وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّا أَن لَّن تَقُولَ الْإِنسُ وَالْجِنُّ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا

And verily, we thought that men and jinns would not utter a lie against Allâh

(Al-Jinn 72:5)
  
They did not realize that man and Jinn would utter lies about Allah (SWT) because it’s a great evil but when people are evil, they can’t control their tongue and their private parts.

When people don't have taqwa they can't control their tongue and their private parts.

The worst liar is the one who lies on Allah (SWT)

When you lie on Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), you lie on Allah (SWT) because Muhammad is the massenger of Allah (SWT)

Hadith is wahi (Revelation)
  
AYAH 6:
وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ رِجَالٌ مِّنَ الْإِنسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٍ مِّنَ الْجِنّ فَزَادُوهُمْ رَهَقًا   

And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief.

(Al-Jinn 72:6)

Since the jinn are blessed with supernatural powers, their world is mysterious and intriguing.

Why men take shelter with the Jinns? because these men are insecure. They think that if they are able to subdue the Jinns, they will be able to elevate themselves among other men. And seek fame and fortune.

It’s all about fame and fortunes because the jinn have supernatural powers, so there are men who have the jinn work for them because they are insecure.

But Allah (SWT) said the Jinn only increase them in sin and transgression

Because the Jinn will not work for you unless you commit Kufr and shirk

You have to give you Wala (allegiance), your soul to their master Iblis

If you don’t give your soul to Iblis, the Jinn will never work for you

They Jinn will demand you have to give your soul to our master

Who is their master - Iblis

If you don’t give your soul to Iblees, they will never work for you.

Since they can travel far distance in seconds, magicians see them as great assets.

The Jinn they are of various types.

The same way you have Muslims, kufar and hypocrites.

You have the same types among the jinn.

There are three types of jinn: Muslims, kufar, and hypocrites.

When Allah (SWT) said they took shelter with the Jinns, it means they seek help from the Jinns

The prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said that the jinn go up to the heaven and listen to the secret conversations of the angels.

Then they come back to earth and mix one truth with 100 lies.
  
'Urwa reported from 'A'isha that she said that people asked Allah's Messenger () about the kahins. Allah's Messenger () said to them: It is nothing (i. e. it is a mere superstition). They said: Allah's Messenger, they at times narrate to us things which we find true. Thereupon Allah's Messenger () said: That is a word pertaining to truth, which a jinn snatches away and then cackles into the ear of his friend as the hen does. And then they mix in it more than one hundred lies.

[Sahih Muslim Book 26 Chapter 33 Hadith: 5536]

The soothsayers, magicians, fortune tellers, palm readers, all seek help from the Jinns

When Allah (SWT) said they sought shelter from the Jinns, they only increased them in sin and transgression, what did He mean
  
If the Jinn possess someone, the jinn will only leave if the kafir will say "in the name of Jesus".

By the Jinn getting out of the body of the person, he cause 1000 people in the convention to believe Jesus is God.

This is why Allah (SWT) said the Jinn only increases them in sin and transgression

Because the Jinn will work for you if you dabble in shirk

The Jinn were on earth before us.

Ibn Kathir said they were on earth 2000 years before us in his book "Al Bidaya wal Nihaya".

AYAH 7:
وَأَنَّهُمْ ظَنُّوا كَمَا ظَنَنتُمْ أَن لَّن يَبْعَثَ اللَّهُ أَحَدًا  

And they thought as you thought, that Allâh will not send any Messenger (to mankind or jinns).

(Al-Jinn 72:7)

Mankind and jinn are similar in their mentality. Sometimes they think alike

The reason is because we have a free will.

We have sexual needs, need for food, to drink, to sleep, etc.

Because they are similar they work with each other and work for each other.

However, Allah (SWT) did not create man and jinn for any reason, except to worship Him Allah (SWT)

And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).

(Adh-Dhariyat 51:56)

In the above mentioned ayah, Allah (SWT) mentions Jinn first, because they were on earth 2000 years before us.
  
AYAH 8:
وَشُهُبًا وَأَنَّا لَمَسْنَا السَّمَاءَ فَوَجَدْنَاهَا مُلِئَتْ حَرَسًا شَدِيدًا 

'And we have sought to reach the heaven; but found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires.

(Al-Jinn 72:8)
  
Why is Allah (SWT) guarding the heavens?

The stars are used as missiles to stop the Jinn from eavesdropping on the conversation of the angels.
  
And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the Shayatin (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire.

(Al-Mulk 67:5)
  
THE STARS WERE CREATED FOR THREE REASONS:

1- To guide you at night.

2- To beautify the heavens.

3- To use the stars as missiles to burn up the shayateen when they listen to the secret conversations of the angels.

Qutadah said: [And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps. (Al-Mulk 67:5)] Allah created these stars for three purposes, i.e. as decoration of the sky, as missiles to hit the devils, and as signs to guide travellers. So, if anybody tries to find a different interpretation, he is mistaken and just wastes his efforts in seeking something of which he has no knowledge."

[Sahih Bukhari, Baab fi’l-Nujoom (4/107)]
  
AYAH 9:

وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ ۖ فَمَن يَسْتَمِعِ الْآنَ يَجِدْ لَهُا شِهَابًا رَّصَدًا

'And verily, we used to sit there in stations, to (steal) a hearing, but any who listens now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush.

(Al-Jinn 72:9)

Allah (SWT) declared an all out war on the Jinn after the advent of the Rasul (SAW)
  
Verily! We have adorned the near heaven with the stars (for beauty). And to guard against every rebellious devil. They cannot listen to the higher group (angels) for they are pelted from every side. Outcast, and theirs is a constant (or painful) torment. Except such as snatch away something by stealing and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness.

(As-Saffat 37:6-10)
  
Not all the Jinn were stopped, some of them got away.

The jinns that get away are the ones the pass on the information to magicians, palm readers, fortune tellers, diviners

Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), said “Whoever comes to a fortune-teller and believes him has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam)”.

[Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 2, pg. 429) No. 9532 and Mustadrak al-Hakim (Vol. 1, pg. 49) No. 15]

Narrated Safiyyah, daughter of Abu `Ubaid, on the authority of some of the wives of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) who said, "He who goes to one who claims to tell about matters of the Unseen and believes in him, his Salat (prayers) will not be accepted for forty days.''

[Muslim Chapter 303 from Imam Al-Nawawi's Riyad-us-Saliheen].

AYAH 10:
وَأَنَّا لَا نَدْرِي أَشَرٌّ أُرِيدَ بِمَن فِي الْأَرْضِ أَمْ أَرَادَ بِهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ رَشَدًا   

'And we know not whether evil is intended for those on earth, or whether their Lord intends for them a Right Path.

(Al-Jinn 72:10)

The jinn are saying we don’t know the future, we don’t have any knowledge of Ilm al ghaib. Not even the prophet Muhammad (SAW) had the knowledge of Ilm al ghaib

Here the jinn are admitting that they have the knowledge of the unseen. The knowledge of the unseen belongs to Allah (SWT)

The prophet Muhammad (SAW) was told to tell the people he doesn’t have knowledge of unseen in surah 7:118

However the evil shias claim that their imams are infallible and that they have knowledge of the unseen.
  
Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "I possess no power of benefit or hurt to myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe."

(Al-A'raf 7:188)

AYAH 11:
وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَ ۖ كُنَّا طَرَائِقَ قِدَدًا

There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups each having a different way (religious sect, etc.).

(Al-Jinn 72:11)
  
The same way humans developed into different religious groups, the jinn are different groups
They are of three dimensions: Muslim, kufar, and hypocrite.

The Jinns are also of these three dimensions

The Jinns possess people

The scholars use surah 2:275 to prove that Jinn possess people. This is used to checkmate the Mutazilites who claim that Jinns don’t possess people

Those who eat Riba (usury) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaitan (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Riba (usury) shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allah (to judge); but whoever returns [to Riba (usury)], such are the dwellers of the Fire - they will abide therein.

(Al-Baqarah 2:275)
  
The above mentioned verse was used by scholars to prove that the jinn possess people.

‘Abd-Allah ibn al-Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said: “I said to my father, ‘There are some people who say that the jinn do not enter the body of the epileptic.’ He said: ‘O my son, they are lying; the jinn could speak through this person.’” Commenting on this, Ibn Qudamah said: “What he said is well known, because a person may suffer an epileptic seizure and speak in a language that no one understands, and his body may be beaten with blows that would fell a camel, but the epileptic does not feel them at all, and he is also unaware of the words he is saying.

It is a reality not a fantasy

The prophet (SAW) said the shaitaan runs in our veins the way blood runs in our veins. So it is possible for the Jinn to possess people

Jabir narrated that The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Do not enter upon Al-Mughibar (the women whose husband are absent), for indeed the Shaitan flows through one of you as the blood flows.” We said: “And you?” He said: “And me, but Allah helped me over him, so I am safe.”

{Jami at-Tirmidhi Vol. 1, Book 7, Hadith 1172 [Hasan]}

The scholars of Ahlu sunnah wal Jama’h believe Jinns possesses people.

It’s only the Mutazila who beg to differ.

We can take some aspect of Fiqh from them but not Aqeeda.

Don’t go to homes where husbands are not there because the shaitaan runs in our veins the way blood runs in our veins.

THE REASONS WHY THE JINN POSSESS PEOPLE:

REASON: 1- YOU HARM A JINN ACCIDENTALLY.

For example you urinate in a stone hole where he lives and he thought that you did it deliberately.

So he possess you to take revenge

Qatadah related from 'Abdullah ibn Sarjas who said, "The Messenger of Allah forbade urination into a hole." Said Qatadah, "What is disliked about urinating into a hole?" Said he, "It is the residence of the jinn."

[related by Ahmad, an-Nasa'i, Abu Dawud, al-Hakim and al-Baihaqi. Ibn Khuzaimah and Ibn as-Sakin classified it as sahih]

REASON: 2- A JINN FALLS IN LOVE WITH YOU

You didn’t harm the Jinn but its bend on mischief

REASON: 3- A JINN IS WICKED AND IS BENT ON MISCHIEF.

REASON: 4- A JINN WORKS WITH A MAGICIAN, AND THE MAGICIAN DISPATCHES THE JINN TO POSSESS YOU AND YOU HAVE TO PAY HIM TO REMOVE THE JINN.

This is how the magician makes his money

AYAH 12:
وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّا أَن لَّن نُّعْجِزَ اللَّهَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَن نُّعْجِزَهُ هَرَبًا
 'And we think that we cannot escape (from the punishment of) Allâh in the earth, nor can we escape (from the punishment) by flight.

(Al-Jinn 72:12)
  
They will never be able to escape punishment of Allah {SWT} even though they can travel place to place in seconds, they can’t escape Allah {SWT}.

He is al qadr. The ONE WHO HAS the power over all things.

They can’t escape Allah’s punishment, neither in the Dunya nor the akhira.
    
 AYAH 13:

تَحَرَّوْا رَشَدًا وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الْمُسْلِمُونَ وَمِنَّا الْقَاسِطُونَ ۖ فَمَنْ أَسْلَمَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ 

And indeed when we heard the Guidance (this Qur'ân), we believed therein (Islâmic Monotheism), and whosoever believes in his Lord shall have no fear, either of a decrease in the reward of his good deeds or an increase in punishment for his sins.

(Al-Jinn 72:13)

When you are an infidel, you suffer from grief.

Because you have imaan you have self contentment

When you are a believer, no fear shall you have nor shall you grieve because of your faith

When you are unbeliever, you life is filled with fear and grieve

When you are a believer your heart finds contentment

The believers find contentment in dikhr.

Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.


(Ra'd 13:28)
