JINN or Genie



THE REAL GHOSTS: JINN

TYPES OF JINN

(Taken from the book - "The World of the Jinn and Devils", p. 7 Ibn Abdul Barr said, "The jinn, according to the scholars of the language, are of different types:
If one is mentioning the jinn purely of themselves, the are called jinni.*

If one is mentioning the jinn that live among mankind, they are called aamar whose plural is amaar.

If one is mentioning the ones that antagonize the young, they are called arwaah.

If one is mentioning the evil ones that antagonize humans they are called shaitan for the singular [and shayateen for plural].

If they cause even more harm and become strong, they are called afreet."

An Ifrît (strong) from the jinns said: "I will bring it to you before you rise from your place (council). And verily, I am indeed strong, and trustworthy for such work." [The Noble Qur'an 27:39]

Narration - Reported by al-Tahhaawi in Mushkil al-Athaar, 4/95, and by al-Tabaraani in al-Kabeer, 22/214 Abu Tha’labah al-Khushani said: “The Messenger of Allaah said: ‘The jinn are of three types: a types that has wings, and they fly through the air; a type that looks like snakes and dogs; and a type that stops for a rest then resumes its journey.” [Shaykh al-Albaani said in al-Mishkaat (2/1206, no. 4148): al-Tahhaawi and Abu’l-Shaykh reported it with a saheeh isnaad]

CREATION OF JINN

The Noble Qur'an - Ar-Rahmaan 55:15 "He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery. And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.

The Noble Qur'an - Al-Hijr 15:26-27 " And indeed, We created man from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire.

JINN CAN BE MUSLIMS TOO

The Noble Qur'an - Al-Jinn 72:1-2 "Say (O Muhammad ): "It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns listened (to this Qur'ân). They said: 'Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Qur'ân)! 'It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allâh).
