¡ Say, “It was revealed unto me that a group of jinn listened, and said, ‘Truly we have heard a wondrous Quran 1 The jinn listened to the Prophet’s recitation of the Quran (JJ). Their response, the speech that begins here, in which they marvel at the Quran and affirm it (v. 2), is said to have been addressed to their own community of jinn upon their return (JJ). This event is also said to be the one referred to in 46:29-32. A wondrous Quran could also be rendered “an amazing Quran,” which is understood as a reference to an unparalleled eloquence that amazed the jinn (Bg), as it did human beings.
