The Unseen, The Mysterious: The Jinn

Updated on September 22, 2012

Joined: 5 years agoFollowers: 125Articles: 13

After countless hours of watching clips on youtube, reading articles on the internet, studying the Quran and ahadith (teachings of the Prophet Muhammad), as well as going through non-muslim forums, I've finally gathered my thoughts about the Jinn (djinn). I will however, update this hub from time to time as my thoughts get clearer.

Please note - this hub is a result of my research and as far as I know it is accurate, but at the end of the day, only Allah knows best what is true and accurate.

In order for you to get the whole picture about the Jinn I will have to first take you through some history and characteristics then explain several phenomena around the world related to the Jinn.

Lets get started...

The evil Jinn
The evil Jinn | Source

The word Jinn (Djinn) is an Arabic word meaning “to hide” or “hidden”.

The Jinn are hidden from our sight and are considered to be spiritual beings similar to angels.

The Jinn are mentioned mainly in Islam but also have some links to Christianity, regarding Prophet Solomon.

Jinnī (Genie), is the singular form of Jinn.

According to a translation of the Quran by Mufti Taqi Usmani, the father of the Jinn is called Jānn, just as the father of mankind is Adam.

Jann was said to be created from a substance that was as blazing as fire, but subtle as wind.

“from a fire of scorching wind” [Quran 15:27]

“from a smokeless flame of fire” [Quran 55:15]

The Jinn are mentioned in the Quran in approximately 28 instances. Therefore the earliest book that talks about the Jinn would be the Quran (1400 years old). Jinn stories can be found in the book called 'One Thousand and One Nights', which is a collection folk tales compiled in Arabic. The English version is known as the Arabian Nights.

Suleimān (King Solomon – son of David) was a prophet of ancient Israel. He was bestowed upon with special powers or gifts by God which include wisdom in his youth, talking to birds and having control over the Jinn. He was also known to be a great preacher.

In the Quran, Prophet Suleiman talks to the Jinn and people, to bring the throne of the Queen of Saba' (Sheba - some say Sheba is Yemen).

Chapter 27 Verses 38-40 Translation: Yusuf Ali

Said an Ifrit of the Jinns: "I will bring it to thee before thou rise from thy Council: indeed I have full strength for the purpose, and may be trusted." (39)

the main thing to be noted here is the travelling speed of the jinni. (more on Prophet Suleiman and Jinn in another hub)

According to the Quran, humans and Jinn will both face the day of Judgement and be punished or rewarded according to their deeds (i.e. both have freewill).

A Jinnī called Iblis used his free will and refused to bow to Adam and was therefore expelled from the heavens and was declared Saytān (Satan) meaning “the opposer” and in the Quran Allah says "He is of the Jinn". The throne of Iblis is said to be over water.

It is still not clearly understood whether Jinn are angels or Jinn are a tribe of angels or a separate entitiy altogether, but I will leave that for the scholars to decide.

Fortune telling was a common practice before /during and after the time of the prophet Muhammad. The fortune tellers before the time of the Prophet Muhammad were very accurate. The reason for the fortune teller’s great accuracy was that the gates to the heavens were open to the jinn. The jinn used to listen to the commands of the Almighty and relay the message to the fortune teller. During the time of the Prophet Muhammad, new barriers were placed with guards to distance the Jinn from the truth and therefore the accuracy in fortune telling went downhill.

Every human is believed to have one angel and one jinni with them at all times. The angel is there to note everything you do and writes down all your deeds in a book attached to your neck, as well as report your daily and nightly deeds to God. The jinni is there to lead you astray. when a person dies the jinni is relieved of it's duty and is free to roam the earth to cause more mischeif, until the jinni dies.

The lifespan of the jinni is not known clearly. Some say they live for 1000 years, others say up to 8000 years.

Some people believe there are tribes and not types of Jinn. I found more logical sense in the types rather than tribes during my research, therefore will stick to the types of Jinn in this hub.

There are 4 types of Jinn

1. Sílā

2. Ghūl

3. Ifrīt

4. Mārid

Note - If there had to be only one type of Jinn out of these four then it would be the Ifrīt. There could also be Ranks among the Jinn instead of types. The Ifrīt are mentioned in some Quran translations and the Hadith.

The sílā are believed to be female. They are a rare, and It is not known which areas they inhabit on earth. They are reserved and secretive. They have a sense of being very independent. They are excellent shape shifters. They also can manipulate circumstances around you but is only an illusion which makes them great in the art of manipulating others for a short time. They are believed to be the most intelligent of the jinn. They can become a human’s companion. Some people confuse the sílā with the Ghūl because it is difficult to differentiate between them.

[Source: Non-Muslim Forum - see reference links at end of hub]

The Ghūl are believed to be female, that inhabit burial grounds and other deserted places. They are evil jinn and are said to be the offspring of Iblīs (Saytān). They are also shape shifters but can be recognized by their unchangable sign; the ass’s hooves.

“A ghūl stalked the desert, often in the guise of an attractive woman, trying to distract travellers, and, when successful, killed and ate them. The sole defence that one had against a ghūl was to strike it dead in one blow; a second blow would only bring it back to life again.”

[Source: Britannica encyclopaedia online]

One thing to note here is that the throne of Iblis is in the waters yet the offspring (Ghul) inhabit burial grounds and deserted places. The throne part is from the Hadith which are more reliable than the internet so if any of the two statements are wrong it would be the ghul inhabiting burial grounds and deserted places.

Ifrīt means “rebellious”. They can be male (Ifrīt) or female (Ifrītah). Like humans they have good and bad ones between them but are depicted as being wicked and ruthless. They inhabit the underground and ruins. Ifrīts have a whole structured society complete with kings, tribes and clans. They are known to have enormous wings and look like they are made out of smoke. They are susceptible to magic, which humans can use to kill or capture and enslave them. An Ifrīt can be a believer or unbeliever, and have the same belief system as humans (i.e. Jews, Christians, Muslim, Atheist, Sikh, Hindu, and Buddhist). It is difficult to differentiate between an Ifrīt and a Mārid as they have very similar characteristics.

[Source: Britannica encyclopaedia online]

Mārid are described to be the most powerful type of jinn having great powers and inhabit the oceans, seas and open waters. They are the most arrogant and proud of all the jinn types. They do grant wishes to humans but it requires some kind of battle, rituals, imprisonment or even a great deal of flattery.

[Source: Britannica encyclopaedia online]

Note - I would have assumed the Marid to be the offsprings of Iblis (Saytan) as they inhabit similar regions as well as being the most powerful.

The term Hadīth (plural: hadīth, or ahadīth) in Islām is a body of Authentic literature that comprises the sayings, teachings, behaviour and characteristics of the last messenger of God; Prophet Muhammad.

The Hadīth is a key source of information for Muslims, who try to emulate the character and apply the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad in their everyday lives.

There are over 50 hadith which talk about the Jinn and I would like to share 3 with you.

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 8 :: Hadith 450

Narrated Abu Huraira:

"The Prophet said, "Last night a big demon (afreet) from the Jinns came to me and wanted to interrupt my prayers (or said something similar) but Allah enabled me to overpower him. I wanted to fasten him to one of the pillars of the mosque so that all of you could See him in the morning but I remembered the statement of my brother Solomon (as stated in Quran): My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to anybody after me (38.35)." The sub narrator Rauh said, "He (the demon) was dismissed humiliated."


afreet is a different spelling of Ifrīt

Aisha was the wife of Prophet Muhammad

Abu Huraira and Jabir bin 'Abdullah were companions of Prophet Muhammad.

Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 54 :: Hadith 533

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "Cover your utensils and tie your water skins, and close your doors and keep your children close to you at night, as the Jinns spread out at such time and snatch things away. When you go to bed, put out your lights, for the mischief-doer (i.e. the rat) may drag away the wick of the candle and burn the dwellers of the house." Ata said, "The devils." (instead of the Jinns).

Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 71 :: Hadith 657

Narrated 'Aisha:

Some people asked Allah's Apostle about the fore-tellers He said. ' They are nothing" They said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Sometimes they tell us of a thing which turns out to be true." Allah's Apostle said, "A Jinn snatches that true word and pours it Into the ear of his friend (the fore-teller) (as one puts something into a bottle) The foreteller then mixes with that word one hundred lies."

Can they be enslaved or captured?

The straight forward answer is yes they can.

On some certain non-Muslims forums I’ve read about people even creating a family of Jinn and spirits for themselves and being light, dark and grey. One important aspect to remember is if the Jinn have free will like humans then they will not always be telling the truth. If they are evil jinn then they will become whatever you want them to be to drive you astray.

The Islamic scholars say they are the unseen and cannot be seen yet many non-Muslims claim they have seen them. One possibility could be that they cannot be seen in their actual state but can be seen if they modify their state.

In order to capture them you need to have a vessel of some kind with a precious stone in it which is liked by the jinn, where they can live with you and there is some kind of welcoming ritual involved where you raise the vessel in a tea light and introduce yourself to them and welcome them as well as ask them to protect and guide you and to stay with you in the vessel till you die, and some other wordings are involved to start creating a bond between the human and the jinn.

In other cases you do not welcome them but you must have an article that belongs to that particular jinni. If the jinni is unwilling to be bound then the person and the jinn engage in a batter of mind games/riddles in order to obtain the others true name. The games are said to be long and dangerous and the winner can chose to enslave or kill the other.

For believers in God - It is not advisable to take this route as in some cases you have to start calling them your Protector, and are asking for guidance. Only God is the Protector and the one who provides Guidance. I believe this is a trap for the believer as they start associating something else with God.

Visions of dead people

Because everyone has a jinni attached to them in this world, when the person dies their jinni is released. This jinni knows the shape of your close relative who has passed away. The jinni can come in the shape of your family member and talk to you. There could be good intentions of the jinni as well as bad. For some people it helps get over the sorrow of losing a loved one, knowing they are well and safe. Since the jinni has lived with the relative all their lives the jinni will know everything about the person and can speak about memories and everything.

Shadow people

Jinni’s can form the shape of a shadow and stand on top of you or on the side of your bed. It just stands and watches people. I have no idea why it stares at the person and even lets them see that someone is watching them, but I will assume that they might want their presence to be recognized by the specific person who sees the jinni. The reason I say a specific person is because it has happened to a friend of mine who saw the shadow standing on top of him but when he woke his family member up to show her, she could not see anything.

Sleep paralysis

I’ve been through sleep paralysis and I know it feels like someone is grabbing hold of you and you cannot move at all. I believe it’s a jinni who might either be obsessed with you and is giving you a hug, or a jinni who is angry with you, who might want you out of the house or the way and giving you a warning. Your bed could be in the jinni's everyday path and since you’re blocking the route the jinni gets frustrated and makes sure you know something you’ve done is wrong. Some might just do it for the fun of scaring the daylights out of the person.

Appear in the form of saints

There are a number of stories where people see a pious person or a saint who says to the person in their dream that all your sins are forgiven and you no longer need to pray. People do fall for these kinds of dreams or visions and quit their prayers. It’s obviously a bad jinni doing a good job in the eyes of Satan.

Fortune Tellers

They will look at you for a second or two and then tell you something correct and secretive about your past. How does that work? The fortune teller has an enslaved jinni, he then makes the jinni ask your jinni about your life and the information is relayed to the fortune teller. This is how they know things about you. Once they have built your trust that they know what no one knows, then they start telling you false information about your future.

Black magic

Powerful jinn are used in black magic, probably the Mārid. It is believed that there is some sort of contract between the jinn and the practitioner of black magic. Contracts could include sacrifice of animals or even a disrespectful act such as urinating on religious scriptures. These jinn are sent by the practitioner to possess you. They cause aches and pains as well as diseases which cannot be diagnosed by doctors. If the black magic is strong enough then it can even take your life. Black magic also causes stoppages in ones daily errands and makes the affected person’s life really difficult. Some people would not be able to get married no matter how hard they try, at the end of the day something goes wrong. Some people might suffer financially. Some people would have to try a couple of times to get a single task completed. All these are variations in black magic. In black magic as far as I’ve heard, people are used as vessels for travel. I have no idea how it works and why a black magician would need a vessel but the person performing black magic would be using the jinn. I also know that some UFO aircraft seen have been military undercover projects, and for some reason if there is a large object in the sky the governments never attack it for being in their air space.

Aliens and Abductions

Once again the Jinn. I recently saw a true story movie called "the fourth kind", where people were being abducted in Nome, Alaska. The lady in the movie saw black shadows who had dragged her out of bed while she was asleep and maybe did an experiment or two on her, but she never remembered anything until she heard a recording. The beings were possessing people in Nome and also claimed that it was God. The possessed people were either severely injured or killed after the message of the being had been relayed. The original footages are also shown in the movie but whenever the jinn arrived or wanted to show themselves the visual recording and audio became scrambled.


Similar to black magic we have magicians who use the jinn to entertain people. I know most magicians are actually very good illusionists, but some who do great stunts in front of a 3D crowd have some jinn under their sleeves.


Psychics I’ve only seen in the west. There is nothing like it in the east or I have not personally come across a psychic in the east. I do not know how much in depth information a psychic can reveal about the dead person but if they are only things that match the person they are working for then they are not in touch with the dead but the jinni of the person sitting in front of them. They can get all the information from the jinni inside you if you go to the psychic. They just don’t know who’s jinni is talking to them but I do believe they have the ability to communicate to the jinn.

Ghosts & Hauntings

Spirits of dead people do not leave the graves. The people in the grave are asleep and will wake up on the day of judgement feeling like they have slept for something like 10 days. As we know the Jinn occupy empty places, this tells me there could be a family of jinn living in the haunted house, and do not want people to move in because the house is occupied. The easiest way is to frighten the people who visit to secure the location.

Ouija board

Almost all the people interested in the paranormal have tried the ouija board. In my view you are not talking to a dead person you are talking to any jinn that is present in your house at the time. Yes they do have names. They cannot tell you the correct future. They might be able to tell you about your past while talking to the jinn attached to you.

Spontaneous Combustion

I might be stretching it out a little, but it's a thought that came across my mind. It could be possible that this phenomena can be related to the Jinn as well. As discussed earlier the human has to battle with the jinn in order to capture or ensalve a jinn. If the human loses the battle maybe the jinn burns him with the fire he/she was created with. Maybe the human was mistreating the jinn and the jinn wanted revenge and killed him/her. Could be a possibility. I have personally never come across anyone who knew a person who passed away this way therefore i cannot verify if they were in any contact with beings before their death.

Bermuda Triangle

We know the throne of Iblis (Saytan) is over water. It could be possible that the Bermuda triangle is where the throne of Iblis is situated. People who make it out alive, see all kinds of illusions in the Bermuda Triangle and it could be the jinn creating the illusions. We also know electronic devices fail in the Bermuda Triangle and we also know that when the jinn want their presence known the electronic devices do not function well. There could be a link but once again only a guess.

Pyramids of Egypt

This is also another possibility not a fact. We know the pyramids have a link to astrology, where the tunnels point towards a specific point in the sky. We also know people worshipped the jinn in the past, and we also know the jinn have great strenghts. Jinn also have a link to teaching majic and fortune telling to man therefore i think it is quite safe to assume that there is a possibility that the jinn were the gods of the people of the time and they constructed the pyramids.

Protection from Jinn and Black Magic

There are many ways to protect yourself from a Jinn but most of them are Islamic methods which i will write about in a different hub.

One thing I can share here for readers of all faiths is to dispose your nails and hair properly. Also guard your mothers name, meaning do not tell people your mothers name. If someone wants magic done on you they will need one or all of these items.

Most spiritual healing type people I have personally visited have asked for the following.

  1. a picture of the person.
  2. the address of the person
  3. the mothers name of the person

If the healers can use this information to get to a person who lives over 7,000 miles away within seconds, then this information can be equally dangerous if it falls in the wrong hands. One possibility can be the healer is an expert astral traveller and using their power of travel to misguide you.

Another thing we know is that the devil or jinns spread out just after sunset. So to make sure they do not stay over in an abandonded room in your house, you should to switch on a light in every room when the sun is about to set and leave the light on for 30 mins or so.

A strong warning for my brothers and sisters in Islam. If you go to a spiritual healing person and they ask for names and pictures then please do not supply the information and walk out. Moving forward with this kind of healing is not the right way in Islam, and many scholars have declared that as soon as you provide that information, to the healer you have stepped out of the boundaries of Islam. The correct way is to perform Ruqya. You can do it yourself or get a knowledgeable person to perform Ruqya on the possessed or affected person. (More in another Hub, you can search google for Ruqya and you'll get many results)

Muslim :: Book 1 : Hadith 343

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) was standing amongst us and he told us five things. He said: Verily the Exalted and Mighty God does not sleep, and it does not befit Him to sleep. He lowers the scale and lifts it. The deeds in the night are taken up to Him before the deeds of the day. and the deeds of the day before the deeds of the night. His veil is the light. In the hadith narrated by Abu Bakr (instead of the word" light" ) it is fire. If he withdraws it (the veil), the splendour of His countenance would consume His creation so far as His sight reaches.


And there we have it, from ghosts, shape shifters, man eaters, illusionists to flying around the world and even up to the heavens and back within seconds. The Jinn are truly powerful beings that live parallel to us in this world.

I would like to leave you with the thought that if we have such enormous beings which are capable of so much in this world then how Great, Powerful and Enormous would the Creator, the Almighty be...

Update - 22 Sept 2012

Is there anything unseen to the Jinn?

Quran Surah 34:14

"King Solomon had entrusted the construction of Bait-ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem) to the Jinns. They used to work only under the supervision of Solomon. When the time of his death approached, he stood before them (in his place of worship) reclining on his sceptre. When he died in this position, his body remained standing with the support of the sceptre. The Jinns, believing him to be alive, continued their work until the remaining work was completed. At that point Allah sent a termite that ate up the wood of the sceptre, and the body of Solomon fell down. Then the Jinns came to know about his death. This incident also falsified the presumption that the Jinns have the knowledge of the Unseen."

      I find this hub fascinating.... I remember reading Arabian Nights when I was a child... and the idea of genies come freely to mind every time I visit an antique store.It is better today, to hear read this information from a more eastern tone then through the eyes of a christian. Totally fascinating... now about that desert Island you mentioned in another set of comments!

      beautiful and very good work.

      very well written and researched.

      note: if a healer asks your mother's name than it is sure that he is also a magician. it is in hadith.

      I love the phenomena section.

      good work....

      @Christine... you are free to agree or disagree to whatever i've written ... nothing is set in stone apart from what is in the hadith and Quran. thank you very much for appreciating the research. :)

      @Mansoor ... thanks for pointing out that if they ask your mothers name then the person is a magician and not a healer. i'm really glad you liked it. ;)

    • kittythedreamer profile image

      Author Nicole Canfield 5 years ago from the Ether

      arksys - I would have to say that the jinn sound equivalent to the Christian "demons". And I'm assuming the Muslim or Islam version of the Christian Satan is what you refer to as "Saytan". Is that correct? Funny that the Bible and the Quran share similarities and yet some of them battle each other outright. Sad really. Very interesting hub, though. The more I learn about the Jinn, the more interested I am in their existence. The sleep paralysis that I've experienced lately...well, the creature that I saw looked almost exactly like the picture your friend drew...except the one I saw was could see through him. Thanks for sharing.

    • arksys profile image

      Irfan 5 years ago from Adelaide, Australia

      Kitty - you are right ... there are many similarities between christianity and islam ... Satan is Saytan ... Iblis is Lucifer ... Musa is Moses ... Isa is Jesus ... Ibrahim is Abraham ... Nooh is Noah ... Jibra'il is Gabriel, Adam is Adam, Eve is Hawwa ... Solomon is Suleiman, David is Dawud ... and so on ... everything is the same but the muslims believe that Jesus was a messenger and not a God ...and muslims believe in One God and not anything like the Trinity. Gabriel is the Holy Ghost. Thats where the main differences are. It is sad that there is hate everywhere. It shouldn't be like that at all.

      Interesting that you actually saw a creature ... normally i've heard shadow people being seen with the sleep paralysis but never a creature. I did read your account of sleep paralysis, definitely spooky. I'm glad your smudge system worked.

      very good hub Arksys, the jinn are the watchers in the Book of Enoch that were appointed to the earth to watch over humaity. The watchers are born from fire just like angels but the watchers/jinn can not transpose between heaven and earth the way the angels do. They are sort of like angels in training. The watchers/jinn are tested and put thru trials before they ascend to an actual angel. God can give the watchers access to heaven, as God did with Satan/Iblis but the watchers are not complete angels.

      Iblis got 6 of the 12 lead watchers to make a bond to posses human men and create offspring with human women. The 7 lead watchers (Iblis and the other 6) and all their assistants (each lead watcher has at least 200 assistant watchers that must follow them) did the unthinkable. Their offspring became evil giants that did not have enough food to eat, so they started eaten humans. The angels reported this to God and God flooded the earth to destroy the evil giants. God brought forth humanity into the fourth world by bringing Noah's family through the flood.

      thanks Mathew,

      we know from the Quran that the jinn are made out of fire. but angels are made out of light or "nour".

      Most muslims do think similarly though when you say the jinn are angels in training. Iblis was said to be a very faithful follower of God until he refused to prostrate in front of man (he was a jinn). you also mention that watchers are not complete angels ... which is consistent with both angels and watchers/jinns being created with separated sources. i.e. light and fire.

      in the days before our prophet, the gates of heaven were open to both Jinn and angels. the doors closed at the time of the prophet Muhammad and some jinn still try to hear God's orders from the gates. if they are seen lurking around, they flee and a "ball of fire" is thrown after them... which we can see at night; the shooting star.

      i have Noah's story mixed up in my head at the moment ... i will read it again and will keep your explanation of the watchers in mind while i read it and will comment later.

      thank you for your valuable input. :)

      Sarfaraz ... thank you very much for your input. I understand that jinn are made out of smokeless fire and angels are made out of light (nour) ... but when i was doing my research i came across the part in the Quran which says something like "and God ordered the angels to bow in front of Adam". Iblis refused because of his free will. the reason why i said type of angel was because the "angels" were told to bow but iblis was also present. And then Allah said "He is of the Jinn." I did not quite manage to grasp that whole scenario therefore said "type of angel".

      the rest is very useful informaiton but not related to this hub so i'll leave it here for now.

      thank you again for your valuable input.

      Every thinks are true , but half and only to be imagination or thought what has been told or written about that. The reality about that is different than people just talk about that. Jinn are from light as well as like angels. they have got unbelievable power and ability that you cant imagination. They know the short and long future in exact form, how is possible?

    • Shiraz 4 years ago

      Thanks for the great information, as sarfaraz said it is true that iblis is not an angel, but a jinn who was so learned and pious that he went along with the angels and used to reside with them in the heavens. As he has been granted with enormous knowledge, he used to preach angels at one particular time before the creation of Adam(as), so he was hardly distinguishable between the angels. When Allah swt created Adam (as) and asked angels to bow down, iblis was present among angels but in actual sense was a jinn. Allah swt knows best.

      hi arksys, my comment about the watchers/jinn being angels in training, was meant more in the concept of, that the jinn will be judged on the last day, just like humans will be judged. However, what a jinn receives for a reward is unknown to humans. Their reward may be like them receiving wings like those the angels have. And having "wings" for a "watcher/jinn" portrays them being able to enter heaven.

      you also mentioned that Jinn are from light and not fire, but the references i've been through mention fire for the Jinn and light for the angels and i cannot change the words of the Quran or the Hadith, therefore I will stand firmly by my statement that the Jinn is made from fire and angels are made from light.

    • Mathew James profile image

      Mathew James 4 years ago

      I also agree that the Jinn are made from fire and the angels are made from light. My post above that referenced angels being made from fire was how the Book of Enoch somewhat descibes them and it was not stated correctly.

      Light upon Light though fire touch it not. There is a big difference between fire and Light.

    • arksys profile image

      Irfan 4 years ago from Adelaide, Australia

      @Mathew ... thanks for that ... the words you mentioned "Light upon Light though fire touch it not" sounded very familiar.

      In the Quran there is a verse that i would like to share with you which describes Allah...

      Sura 24- Al-Noor : Verse 35

      "Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is that of a niche, in which there is a lamp; the lamp is in a glass - the glass looks like a brilliant star - it is lit by (the oil of) a blessed tree, the olive, which is neither eastern, nor western. Its oil is about to emit light even though the fire has not touched it - (it is) light upon light. Allah guides to His light whomsoever He wills; Allah describes examples for the people, and Allah knows everything well (35)"

      Translation : Mufti Taqi Usmani.

      an extract of the verse above which rings a bell. "Its oil is about to emit light even though the fire has not touched it - (it is) light upon light"

      did you get your description from the Book of Enoch? also was it clearly describing angels?

      very amazing job.....i like your writing style.everything is with references.its really fascinating.

      i would like to ask that do you know why most of the things get vanished around barmuda triangle?i searched it but didn't get the perfect answer.

      And secondly can jinn have the power to eat humans?

      (It would be great if you give me the answer with reference).

    • arksys profile image

      Irfan 3 years ago from Adelaide, Australia

      I'll try getting you references. but we know that satan's throne is on water (reference in this article) therefore we can only assume at the moment that the bermuda triangle can be one place where satan (shaytan) resides. i'll look into it further and will let you know.

      secondly we know from the following hadith about what the Jinn eat...

      Bukhari :: Book 5 :: Volume 58 :: Hadith 200

      Narrated Abu Huraira:

      That once he was in the, company of the Prophet carrying a water pot for his ablution and for cleaning his private parts. While he was following him carrying it(i.e. the pot), the Prophet said, "Who is this?" He said, "I am Abu Huraira." The Prophet said, "Bring me stones in order to clean my private parts, and do not bring any bones or animal dung." Abu Huraira went on narrating: So I brought some stones, carrying them in the corner of my robe till I put them by his side and went away. When he finished, I walked with him and asked, "What about the bone and the animal dung?" He said, "They are of the food of Jinns. The delegate of Jinns of (the city of) Nasibin came to me--and how nice those Jinns were--and asked me for the remains of the human food. I invoked Allah for them that they would never pass by a bone or animal dung but find food on them."

      Dawud :: Book 1 : Hadith 39

      Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

      A deputation of the jinn came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: O Muhammad, forbid your community to cleans themselves with a bone or dung or charcoal, for in them Allah has provided sustenance for us. So the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) forbade them to do so.

      Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 903

      Dawud reported from 'Amir who said: I asked 'Alqama if Ibn Mas'ud was present with the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) on the night of the Jinn (the night when the Holy Prophet met them). He (Ibn Mas'uad) said: No, but we were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) one night and we missed him. We searched for him in the valleys and the hills and said. He has either been taken away (by jinn) or has been secretly killed. He (the narrator) said. We spent the worst night which people could ever spend. When it was dawn we saw him coming from the side of Hiri'. He (the narrator) reported. We said: Messenger of Allah, we missed you and searched for you, but we could not find you and we spent the worst night which people could ever spend. He (the Holy Prophet) said: There came to me an inviter on behalf of the Jinn and I went along with him and recited to them the Qur'an. He (the narrator) said: He then went along with us and showed us their traces and traces of their embers. They (the Jinn) asked him (the Holy Prophet) about their provision and he said: Every bone on which the name of Allah is recited is your provision. The time it will fall in your hand it would be covered with flesh, and the dung of (the camels) is fodder for your animals. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Don't perform istinja with these (things) for these are the food of your brothers (Jinn).

      therefore i think its safe to assume that Jinns have the power to kill humans but they do not eat the flesh but may eat from us when the bones appear (i.e. explaining their presence in graveyards)

      there is always a lot of confusion about whether the Quran speaks of Iblis as a Jinn or Angel. One has to remember that to be in Allah's presence (the highest heaven), one must be of the most purified of creation. Iblis was a devoted servant of Allah (swt) and because he is mentioned as being amongst the angels when Allah (swt) asked him to bow to Adam then one might assume he had the light (noor)of faith. We know that noor (light) envelopes a person when they pray and the believers will have the mark of noor on their foreheads/hands and feet to mark them out from the unbelievers. The more you purify the nafs (soul) the more noor shines through. We know that the angels are made of light (they have no free will, they are devoted in worship to Allah (swt)), so the more purified one becomes the more we develop angelic traits.- (read Alchemy of Happiness Imam Alghazali)..

      I'm not so sure whether the Jinn develop light too when they become devoted believers, i've not heard any scholar mention this. We know that Adam and his descents are the vicegerents of Allah (swt) and can attain a very high rank with Allah and this is what Iblis rejected out of pride. The knowledge of whether Iblis is a Jinn or Angel is with Allah (swt) and we have but little knowledge of the unseen.

      I am highlighting this point because I think it is important to non-Muslims to understand that Muslims are taught the Quran through a learned Scholar, this knowledge is not gain by just reading the Quran by yourself. The Quran requires a true scholar to teach one of the inner meanings - and there are many. It can not be read without guidance because for the unpurified nafs (soul) - you will be confounded by some of the stories and saytan often whispers into your heart and causes you to become arrogant and headstrong in your opinions - one can become very hardline and read everything in the literal sense (hence rise of extremism today - to be a Muslim means to submit to a middle way of peace). The Shaytan is always present and is relentless in his attack of the human soul.

      "God created Angels with reasoning power but with neither desire nor

      anger, created Animals with desire and anger but without reasoning

      power, and created Man with all three. So if Man allows desire or anger to control his reasoning power he becomes worse than an animal, and if he controls his desire and anger with reasoning power he becomes better than an angel." Ali ibn Abi Talib

      The Qur'an can be read by anyone anytime. It does not need a human teacher !

      The First Station of the soul (nafs) character traits: narcissistic, mechanical, conditioned, non-reflective, impulsive.

      Habits: pride, enmity, cruelty, lust, stinginess

      In this state one can teach themselves nothing: be it religion or anything else for that matter. You will go through life confirming your in built beliefs filled with hatred. The truth rattles those who disbelieve.

      We are all mad in some way... we live in a world of propaganda and delusion - it is very hard to see through this matrix. Would you give a mentalyl ill person a self-help book and expect them to cure themselves - they do after all have the most insight into their own condition. Wouldn't they then be better placed to figure it out for themselves? Why wouldn't this work? human souls need other human souls. Our own insight is limited when it comes to ourselves and we are all in need of teachers (Shaykh). From the beginning of revelation, all religions have taught through a teacher (Prophet) and they have always had disciples for their message. In Islam we still have unbroken chains of teachers going back to the Prophet (phuh).

      This concept of teaching oneself religion is a new world philosophy and it is the reason for much of the wrongs within society today. To be a true Shaykh one has to have had Ijazza- (approval to teach others by their Shaykh) and this Shaykh has had his Ijazza from his Shaykh which goes back in a long chain of teachers to the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions. They should be able to give you all the authentic names in their chain of teachers for verification purposes, if not they are not a true Shaykh..

      Mathew James 3 years ago

      When a person drinks from the fountain of the Water of Life it quenches the thirst of only the person that drinks it. When a person seeks they find. The path for every person is walked by themselves. If there is a chain of teachers that holds the wisdom of the Message, the chain becomes more important than the Message.

      What we learn from our teachers and forefathers is their understanding. And what we seek from the heart is our own understanding and that becomes knowledge.

    • Layla 3 years ago

      For some people, if they are very sincere then they are gifted by Allah (swt) with deep insight. These are very few..And they are people that never make claims of such knowledge, they are completely humbled by this experience.

      They say that the believer is confounded by the Creator, the unbeliever is confounded by creation. One needs to ask oneself, are we truly praising God in all that we do? Or are we simply praising ourselves? The undeveloped nafs (soul) always makes claims of sincerity and purity of intention. The true know-er (Gnostic) is humble and claims nothing because they realize their insignificance and the more they learn, the more they see only the Glory of God.

    • Shane Schuller 3 years ago

      Jinn human beings like us and experience much challenges like we do. Physical and spiritual challenges. They're not better than us - we all equal except evolving at difference educational and observational experiences, that's all. There are both benevolent and malevolent Jinn. But who are Jinn? They described as UNSEEN which basically points out one thing...not seen, not seen yet or until seen. Unseen does not assert some extra-dimensional being that is unable to be seen with the human eye. In fact Jinn were angels. And given much research we can learn that angels are in fact humans, like us, except! From other worlds - heavenly worlds. Heaven is space, the galaxy, the universe - nothing more.

      Angels are alien visitors each having their own intent and agendas when they come to earth. Our ancient past are full of these boons sharing angelic visitations. Some were benevolent and sort to assist mankinds development, while other groups had malevolent intent and sort to enslave man for mineral gain. They're also had carnal intent and bore off spring with women on earth.

      Comparative study to older religious texts, other than quran is imperative to learn who Jinn really are and how they earned their title - THE SATAN. In Genesis they're are Nephilim - the fallen ones, the fallen angels. They're also the described as "sons of gods" and giants, and perhaps as men of renown. Solomon story shows Jinn interacted with him and assisted building weapons of war. They are humans and they were referred to as Satan for their actions and ill intent. In fact satan is mistakably perceived as an individual, but when investigated we learn it is actually an appelation for a group of people or beings. It is Ha-Satan, the same as saying - The Satan.

      Also be aware that the satan were referred to as a serpent being, race or class. We know no such beings exist. However I can be certain, given much research which I won't get into here, that they were referred to this way because of their place of origin. Like one is referred to as Indian, Chinese and so forth, their reptilian reference comes from the fact that they came from a Serpent star systems. Also more importantly due to their Nordic appearance and eye Colour and bloodshot skin, which was associciated with the closest known reference. Adam man skin tone was very different vs these people. Since we mention Adam here, we can learn another interesting fact. Cain and Abel were bi-paternal twins. Yes 2 different fathers and therefore Seth was revered through mankinds genetic linages and not Cains off spring. Why?

      We can argue since he killed his brother he was a sinner in gods eyes, right? No because is it fair that off spring are held accountable for their parents sins? Obviously not. The reasons are evident and the story of gods favoritism over Abel is more than enough to establish this theory.

      Jinn are humans from other planets and star sytems and referred to as such ONLY if their intent apposes univeral law and that is - Do not intervene in an evolving race IF met with deception, enslavement - very much as seen in our past prior to the deluge. So there is a distinct difference between angels and jinn.

      As in our past, Jinn had off spring with humans on earth and claimed land, traded intergalactically with gold etc. Their children were royalty and ruled nefariously and 'slaughtered' any who would act against their plans. These were large corporations and allowed nothing and no one to stand in their way. Thus we will find stories in scriptures about Gods and angels and wars and nuclear type attacks and so forth. Besides, there is ample evidence of these wars and large empires that once existed, as well as gold mines. Not only will we find these accounts in genesis, but well articulated in the book of Enoch - also know as Idris in Quran. Enoch speaks of Semjaza who was the high ranking leader of angels and trangressed with his group against man on earth. Angels were actually named in his book and he speaks of them as having first hand relationship with them.

      Last night while laying in bed I saw these shadow jinns all around me, black shadowy figures moving fast and waving and coming right in my face and moving back very quickly. I closed my eyes and still saw everything as if my eyes were open, Allah wanted me to see these jinn for a reason, it has increased my faith, as I prayed and spoke Al Fatiha aloud my eyes closed normally and the jinn went away.

      I have been searching for explanations about the Jinn, after my little run in with them. Although I'm not part of the Naqshbandi Sufi path , they were the only source of information that explained a lot of things I had experienced. I would say they are closer to the truth on the understanding of Jinns than most. Jinn are not made of light and are definitely not fallen angels.

    • Annonymous 3 years ago

      Dear I am very much pleased that you wrote very useful information which cleared my some ambiguities and answered my some of the questions. Well some useful information about Djinn:-

      The Djinn which is born with every human being is called "Hamzaad". I believe it is the most powerful kind of Djinn. Hamzaad of The Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) accepted Islam. So it is obvious that your Hamzaad cannot be of the same religion you belong to. But Not all Djinns are bad. Even the most famous Muslim Scholar Djinn who owes a huge Army of Muslim Djinna and always fought so many battles in the history of Islam is the one who had been Companion "Sahabi" of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). His name is Hazrat Shah Baktianoosh who is very old and Kings of the Kings of Muslim Djinns. Very lucky and pious muslims have the honour to meet or see him. People asked about Grey Aliens. And some captured them in Brazil. What are they. In fact there is a physical disorder in some Djinns. Once they change their shape or become visible from invisible state they sometimes get stuck in the same shape and cannot revert back to their original form or invisible form. And one such form is grey aliens. the UFOs are their vessels in which they travel. They use our Sun "Solaris" as the first gate to enter the second sky.. The gates are randomly appeared and vanished on the surface of sun as sunspots and even they open and close near Electron diffusion layer close to earth orbit where Sun's and Earth's magnetic fields meet each other. There are so many footages of ISS (NASA) from the earths orbit where these UFOs and bright lights are appearinf from no where and then entering into earths atmosphere. In fact majority of them live in sea beds and one proof is the Baltic Sean Anomaly which jams every electronic instrument which has been taken in the sea bed to capture its close footage or study any em signature. They have the advanced technology and there is an organization a community in mankind which has unfortunately made a contract with the Satanic Community of Djinns and have transferred technologies to and from each other. And we know those governments. Their projects everything.

      thanks safi ... It is difficult too base your work on something without proper referencing, which leads to mis-information. I searched extensively through the hadith to find information which talk about the jinn. I can only put in what i believe to be true, therefore if you have proper references then let me know and i will make the changes.

      I came across many teachings by some very holy people and found they were using the scaring tactics to fulfill their own motives ... they mentioned things like don't hang pictures because the jinn sees a picture and goes to it... things like this which do not make logical sense... i'm sure many stopped hanging pictures because of these kind of lies but its not the correct teachings... my advice to you is question everything... it says that in the Quran too... don't just follow blindly.

    • Safi 22 months ago

      arksys, i'm not claiming that you are wrong, because simply i do not know. i haven't asked any islamic scholars about this yet, though i will. i think i already gave you the link of the site which differs from you about the types of jinn. i'm only interested about facts that are mentioned in Qur'an and hadith.


    • Safi 22 months ago

      When 'Jinn' means 'unseen' or 'hidden', i don't think we ordinary people are meant to know very much or details about their hidden world. Why are they hidden? do we know? no. we only know the purpose of our creation, we know only what Allah told us “And I created not the jinns and humans, except they should worship Me.” (Adh-Dhariyat: 56)

      If you're only interested in the Quran and Hadith then i have given references to where you can find them in the Quran and Hadith.

      The link you posted did not give a reference therefore could have been invented, even though it could actually be true. It is a weak document therefore i cannot modify my document according to a weak reference. In some places i found people saying there are 6 types of jinn and they claim to "own" a jinn. who do i believe? If i do find the hadith then i will adjust accordingly, but until then it remains as it is. I hope you understand what i'm trying to say.

      The rest of your comment is too deep to talk about in a comments section. maybe you can post something on the forum then it can be discussed.
