In this Surah in v. 1-15, we are informed about the impact of the Qur’an on the company of the Jinn; when they heard it and what they said to their fellow Jinn when they returned to them. God, in this connection, has not cited their whole conversation but only those particular things which were worthy of mention. That is why the style is not that of a continuous speech but sentences have been cited to indicate that they said this and that. If one studies these sentences spoken by the Jinn carefully, one can easily understand the reason for the narration of this event; of their affirming the faith and mentioning their conversation with their people in the Qur’an.
After this, in v. 16-18, the people have been admonished, informing them that if they refrain from polytheism and firmly follow the way of righteousness, they will be blessed. Otherwise, if they turn away from the admonition sent down by God, they will meet a severe punishment. Then, in v. 19-23, the disbelievers of Makkah have been reproached for the manner in which they surround and mob the Messenger of God, informing them that the duty of the Messenger is only to convey the message and that he does not have any power to bring any gain or cause any harm to the people.
Then, in v. 24-25 the disbelievers have been warned about trying to overpower and suppress the Messenger, perceiving him to be weak and without many helpers, and that a time will come when they will know who in actual fact is weak and less in number. Whether that time is far off or near at hand, the Messenger has no knowledge thereof, but it will come to pass in any case. In conclusion, the people have been told that the Knower of the unseen is God alone. The Messenger receives only that knowledge which God gives him. This knowledge pertains to matters connected with the duties of Prophethood and it is delivered to him securely without any external interference whatsoever, from Jinns or anything else.
