Number of verses in sura: 28

Order of revelation: 40

 

[72:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[72:1]  Say, “I was inspired that a group of jinns listened, then said, `We have heard a wonderful Quran.

 

[72:2]  ” `It guides to righteousness, and we have believed in it; we will never set up any idols beside our Lord.

 

[72:3]  ” `The Most High is our only Lord. He never had a mate, nor a son.

 

[72:4]  ” `It is the foolish among us who used to utter such nonsense about GOD.

 

[72:5]  ” `We thought that neither the humans, nor the jinns, could possibly utter lies about GOD.

 

[72:6]  ” `Human beings used to seek power through jinn beings, but they only afflicted them with a lot of adversity.

 

[72:7]  ” `They thought, just like you thought, that GOD would not send another (messenger).

 

[72:8]  ” `We touched the heaven and found it filled with formidable guards and projectiles.

 

[72:9]  ” `We used to sit there in order to spy. Anyone who listens is pursued by a powerful projectile.

 

[72:10]  ” `We have no idea if something bad is intended for the inhabitants of Earth, or if their Lord wills to redeem them.

 

[72:11]  ” `Some of us are righteous, and some are less than righteous; we follow various paths.

 

[72:12]  ” `We knew full well that we can never run away from GOD on Earth; we can never run away and escape.

 

[72:13]  ” `When we heard the guidance, we believed therein. Anyone who believes in his Lord will never fear any injustice, nor any affliction.

 

[72:14]  ” `Among us are the submitters, and among us are the compromisers.’ ” As for those who submitted, they are on the right path.

 

[72:15]  As for the compromisers, they will be fuel for Gehenna.

 

[72:16]  If they remain on the right path, we will bless them with abundant water.

 

[72:17]  We will surely test them all. As for him who disregards the message of his Lord, He will direct him to ever increasing retribution.

 

[72:18]  The places of worship belong to GOD; do not call on anyone else beside GOD.

 

God’s Messenger of the Covenant*

 

[72:19]  When GOD‘s servant* advocated Him alone, almost all of them banded together to oppose him.

 

*72:1-28 The messenger here is named, mathematically, as “Rashad Khalifa,” to whom God revealed the end of the world (Appendix 25). The number of verses from 1:1 to 72:27, where the messenger is mentioned, is 5472, 19x72x4. The word “Rashada” occurs 4 times in Sura 72. The value of “Rashada” is 504, and 504+28 (verses of Sura 72) is 532, 19×28. The value of “Rashad Khalifa” (1230)+72+28=1330 =19×70. The digits of Sura 72 and its number of verses (28) add up to 7+2+2+8=19. Also, the crucial expression, “only to a messenger that He chooses” has a value of 361, 19×19.

 

[72:20]  Say, “I worship only my Lord; I never set up any idols beside Him.”

 

[72:21]  Say, “I possess no power to harm you, nor to guide you.”

 

[72:22]  Say, “No one can protect me from GOD, nor can I find any other refuge beside Him.

 

[72:23]  “I deliver GOD‘s proclamations and messages.” Those who disobey GOD and His messenger incur the fire of Hell, wherein they abide forever.

 

[72:24]  Once they see what is awaiting them, they will find out who is really weaker in power, and fewer in number.

 

[72:25]  Say, “I do not know if what is promised to you will happen soon, or if my Lord will delay it for awhile.”

 

[72:26]  He is the Knower of the future; He does not reveal the future to anyone.

 

[72:27]  Only to a messenger that He chooses,* does He reveal from the past and the future, specific news.*

[72:28]  This is to ascertain that they have delivered their Lord’s messages. He is fully aware of what they have. He has counted the numbers of all things.
