AL-JINN


وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ ۖ فَمَنْ يَسْتَمِعِ الْآنَ يَجِدْ لَهُ شِهَابًا رَصَدًا ﴿٩﴾
٩ - اور یہ کہ پہلے ہم وہاں بہت سے مقامات میں (خبریں) سننے کے لئے بیٹھا کرتے تھے۔ اب کوئی سننا چاہے تو اپنے لئے انگارا تیار پائے .
[72:9] And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.
[Transliteration] Wa annaa kunnaa naq'udu minhaa maqaa'ida lis'sam'i famany yastami'il aana yajid lahoo shihaabar rasada
