This is like what Allah tells us about the Jinn;

وَأَنَّا لَمَسْنَا السَّمَاء فَوَجَدْنَاهَا مُلِيَتْ حَرَسًا شَدِيدًا وَشُهُبًا

وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ فَمَن يَسْتَمِعِ الاْأنَ يَجِدْ لَهُ شِهَابًا رَّصَدًا

وَأَنَّا لَاأ نَدْرِي أَشَرٌّ أُرِيدَ بِمَن فِي الاْأَرْضِ أَمْ أَرَادَ بِهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ رَشَدًا

And we have sought to reach the heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires. And verily, we used to sit there in stations, to (steal) a hearing, but any who listens now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush. And we know not whether evil is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends for them guidance.' (72;8-10)
