Contents of Suratul Jinn

Suratul Jinn was revealed in the blessed city of Makkah al-Mukarramah and contains twenty eight Ayat (verses). Just as its name indicates, this Surah contains a discussion concerning the unseen creation of Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) known as the Jinn.

The discourse, amongst other topics, covers the Jinns' belief in the Prophet of Islam (blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny) and their humility and humbleness in relation to the Holy Qur'an.

Their belief and firm conviction on the Day of Resurrection, and that among them there can be found both believers and disbelievers, is also covered in this Surah. These discussions are covered in nineteen of the twenty eight verses of the Surah and not only refute and negate much of the uncertainty and hearsay that has been disseminated about the Jinn, but also amends and rectifies them.

The second section of this Surah contains a subtle allusion regarding the belief in the Oneness of Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) and the Resurrection Day.

In the final section of this Surah, there is a discussion concerning the Knowledge of the Unseen (‘Ilmul Ghaib) of which not a single soul has knowledge about - except Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) and those individuals whom He decides to inform about these matters.
