قَالُواْ سُبْحَانَكَ أَنتَ وَلِيُّنَا مِن دُونِهِمْ بَلْ كَانُواْ يَعْبُدُونَ ٱلْجِنَّ أَكْـثَرُهُم بِهِم مُّؤْمِنُونَ
٤١
-Saba’ ( سبأ )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

They will say, ‘Glory be to You, exalted above that You should have an associate! You are our Supporter, not they, in other words, as far as we are concerned there are no bonds of association between us and them. Nay, (bal, is to indicate transition) rather, they used to worship the jinn, the devils, in other words, [they used to] obey them and [agree to] worship us; most of them were believers in them’, accepting as truth what these [jinn] used to say to them.
