Overall meaning : Say to the people, Muhammad, ‘Allah has revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened to me reciting the Qur’an and said to their fellow jinn, “We have heard a wondrous Qur’an leading to right guidance, and so We have believed in it and we will never worship anyone else besides our Lord. Our Lord—exalted is His majesty! —has neither a wife nor any offspring. The ignorant among us used to utter outrageous lies about Allah. We used to think that what humans and the jinn claimed was true and that they would never dare to utter falsehoods about Allah. Some men would seek refuge with the leader of the jinn of a particular place so that no harm or evil would afflict them but, by so doing, humans only made the jinn all the more tyrannical and arrogant. The unbelieving jinn thought, just like the unbelieving humans, that Allah would never resurrect the dead on Resurrection Day for judgement and recompense.
