Explanatory Note

The sūrah moves on to refute the other superstition which alleged that some relationship existed between God and the jinn.The allegation being that the angels were God’s daughters born to Him by the jinn! The unbelievers claimed that this is how the relation started. The jinn, however, know for certain that they are created by God, like all other creation, and they also know that they will be brought before Him for judgement. Had they been related to Him, they would be due different treatment.
