Who Are Jinn ? – Miracles Of Allah !

Posted on: October 23, 2008

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

Question 1: Who are the jinn?

The jinn are among the creatures that Allah (swt) created. Allah (swt) created angels, jinn, mankind, animals, plants and others. Jinn have some qualities like human beings. These qualities are intellect, discrimination, freedom, and the power to choose between right and wrong, between true and false, as well as between good and bad.

Question 2: When did Allah (swt) create the jinn?

Allah (swt) created the jinn before Adam (pbuh) was created. Both were created in heaven and lived in paradise. One may read in Surah Al-Hijr (The Rocky Tract) [Qur’an, 15:26-27]. However, nothing was mentioned about the duration of time of the jinn’s creation before Adam (pbuh).

Question 3: What are jinn created from?

Jinn are created from fire of hot wind [Qur’an, 15:27]; and from smokeless fire [Qur’an, 55:15]. They were originally made from fire and then molded and shaped in the form and shape that Allah (swt) wanted them to be. This means that they do not anymore possess their fiery nature. It is not known therefore, their final shape, form, and chemical composition. Since we cannot see them, therefore, it is not easy to do any analysis of their chemical nature. In contrast, mankind was created from soil, mud, and clay. They were molded as human beings. Our final form is no more mud or clay.

Question 4: Do jinn have bodies?

Yes and no! It depends upon the information that one has. One group of scholars believe that jinn do not have bodies of their own. They also do not inhabit bodies of other creatures. However, they do exist independently by themselves. Therefore, they do not know how they exist without bodies: smoke, flame, fire or what?

The other group of scholars do believe that jinn do have bodies either definite or subtle. If their bodies are definite then they have some density; otherwise, if they are subtle, then they are so fine that our weak eyes cannot see them. One may read Surah Al-A’raf (The Heights) [Qur’an, 7:27]. Even if they are subtle they should have weight and density similar to that of the air itself.

Question 5: Do jinn die?

Yes. Jinn do die. As long as they are creatures created by Allah (swt), they should die. They are creatures that marry, produce children, eat, drink, and die like all other creatures in the universe. One may read Qur’an Surah Al-Rahman (The Most Merciful) [Qur’an, 55:26-28].

Question 6: Do the jinn feel envy of us?

Yes. There are two types of evil eye: human and the jinn. One has to read regularly ‘A’oozu Billahi Minash-shaitanir Rajeem. Also, by reading Ayah Al-Kursi and Al-Mu’awwazatain, one will be protected from the evil eyes of both the jinn and mankind.

Question 7: Are there messengers and prophets from within the community of jinn?

Yes. Allah (swt) has sent prophets and messengers to jinn from within the jinn community. Also, Allah (swt) sent Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to mankind, to jinn, and to other creatures. In Surah Al-An’am (The Cattle), Allah (swt) explains that He sent messengers to men and to jinn. See Qur’an [6:130].

Question 8: Do jinn have different religions, sects and denominations?

In Surah Al-Jinn (Ch. 72), Allah (swt) informs us that some jinn accepted Islam, while others refused. Those who refused have deviated, and developed for themselves different methods, different ways of life, and different religions, sects and denominations.

Question 9: Do jinn marry and have children?

Yes. Jinn do marry and they do have children. The way they marry is not known to us yet. We may be able to know the future if Allah (swt) wants us to know.

People never knew about microbes, viruses, and the unseen micro creatures. Now we are able to know many things about their life cycles, their life duration, their methods of duplication or reproduction: sexually and asexually. The mere fact that we do not know how the jinn marry and reproduce does not negate their being married and reproduced. The Qur’an stipulates in Surah Al-Kahf (18:50) that they have offsprings. Similarly, the Qur’an states in Surah Al-Rahman (55:56) that jinn and human beings never touched (married) the ladies of paradise.

Question 10: Can human beings and jinn inter-marry?

Yes and no. It depends upon how one looks at it. It is a known fact in the Qur’an in Surah Al-Israa’ (17:64) that jinn may share with us our wealth and our children. The Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh) reconfirms this concept when he says that when a man has marital relationship with his wife, he should mention the name of Allah (swt). He should seek refuge in Allah (swt) from the outcast shaitan. Otherwise, shaitan folds himself up in the man’s urethra and shall have sexual relations along with him.

Moreover, when a man goes to his wife while she is in her menses, shaitan precedes him. She will conceive and will bring forth a sterile person (Mukhannath). Such a sterile person is considered to be child of the jinn.

Question 11: Do jinn have animals as pets?

Yes. Jinn do have animals or beasts of their own. The Prophet (pbuh) mentioned that every piece of dung is fodder for the beasts of the jinn. However, we do not know what type of beasts the jinn have. The same thing is to be said as to the varieties of beasts, their number, their shape, their size, their weight and so on.

Question 12: Do jinn have homes of their own?

Yes. The jinn do have homes. They live all over the planet earth. However, there are special places that one may find them in abundance and on a regular basis. These are deserts, ruins, places of impurities such as dunghills, bathrooms and graveyards. They live in houses of human beings too. For those who enter their houses mentioning the name of Allah (swt), the jinn cannot have a place to stay overnight in that house. If the people of the house mention the name of Allah (swt) before eating, then the shaitan will not be able to eat with them.

Question 13: Is it true that animals see jinn and angels?

Yes. Animals do see angels and shaitan. When a rooster sees an angel, it starts crowing. However, when a donkey starts braying it is seeing a jinn.

Concerning the virtues of the last two aayaat of this soorah, and the effect of reciting them in one’s house, he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah wrote a document two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, which is kept near the Throne, and He revealed two aayaat of it with which He concluded Soorat al-Baqarah. If they are recited in a house for three consecutive nights, the Shaytaan will not approach it.” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad, 4/274, and others. Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1799

Well,You cant stop them from living in ur home…but infact they itself keep side don’t wish to disturb humans…

in my home there ,they stay on roof…when ever we go up in night,we just make sound to aware we r coming..

Well,they r Allah creation , we don’t have problem when we keep animals…or any other creature created by Allah…then why have problem with them ?


Assalamu alaikkum king…

// in my home there ,they stay on roof…when ever we go up in night,we just make sound to aware we r coming..//

Are you mentioning about the jinn here? can you see the jinn?if you make sound ,they will leave your place? very interesting…….just reply me….am
very fond of seeing them…


Wsalam sister,


Im talking about Jinn…Well,you can see them if they wish ,then they can come in human form ,sometime even animals…

With them i my self had experience… they came in-front of me in my father look…

in my relative,my few aunty Got slaps from them… My 1 cozn brother died becoz there 1 family son was killed by the cozn brothers sister..some says he is still alive,but he is with them..

there both kind of Jinns,Good one bad one… Give sometime do some act which help peoples… how ever they have very strict rules.

My Aunty Got slap as she was sleeping on roof alone in center…in night they move here and there…first night they throw beats of bed … she against slept next day…then she Got slap…. after that she sleept on roof..

no,im not joking ..these all things hapnd… in my home…

every night we can feel,some people walking,some boy runing here and there,someone take bed from 1 side to another side…we clearly hear all sounds..


Oh! you had such a nice experience…you relatives got many slaps ah… what about you?:-)

I ll believe in these things….bcz even a sura is there about Jinn which mentions about the conversation of the Jinns…

Ya…some are good & some are bad as like humans…they have families as like humans….Jinns built the Masjidul Aqsa under the control of Prophet Sulaiman (AS)….& they will do the works for us if we put them in our control…..


Woo……..Subhanallah…….my family used to hear them too… our old home…….Subhanallah……………kind of freaky (scary) if I do say so my self….. 😮 ….but if you read Qur’aan and make your daily Adhkaar, they will run away, and you and your house will be protected, they cant harm you…..Inshallah…

Masha’Allah nice article brother.


God said in his book Aziz created the jinn and mankind only to worship Almighty God ratified

nice subject jazakalah kheir


very interesting article..

may i advise our muslim brothers and sisters:

Try not to stay ‘Naa paak’ (in the state of impurity) for a prolonged period.

· Perform salaah five times daily;

· Constant rememberance of Allah through zikr

· If confronted by a Jinn then recite Auzu billah ……; Lahawla wa la quwwata….. and the last two chapters of Qur’aan, Qul auzu birrabinas and Qul auzu birabil falaq;

· Recite daily a few pages of Surah Baqara as shaytaan does not have the ability to enter a room in which Surah Baqara is read.

jazakallah khair and plz remember me in your humble duas Ameen
