Who are the Jinn?
 " And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans
    except they should worship Me (Alone)."
               (Surah Adh-Dhariyat, 51:56)




     . . . By Sisters Fatima , Jamila & Sister Qamar.
                                                            All About The Jinn
• The jinns are part of the unseen world
• Even though we do not fully understand them, we must still
believe in them
• The jinns were created to worship Allah, just like us
• The jinns are created by fire

   And verily, We created mankind from sounding clay of altered smooth mud and the jinn We
                        created from smokeless fire. (Surah Al-Hijr, 15:26-27)


• The jinns were created before us

    Two thousand years before (mankind) was created, there were Jinn on (the Earth), and they
   caused corruption on it and shed blood. Then Allah sent against them a troop of Angels who
      beat them and cast them away to islands in the seas. So, when Allah said: I am placing
 (mankind) generations after generations on Earth, They (the Angels) said, Will You place therein
  one who will cause corruption and shed blood Just as those Jinn did? Then Allah said: I know
                       that which you do not know. (Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:30)


• The jinns are the descendents of Ibless
                                     The different types of Jinns
                         Abu Tha‟labah al-Khushani said,

      “The Messenger of Allaah said: The jinn are of three types: a
       type that has wings, and they fly through the air; a type that
      looks like snakes and dogs; and a type that travels stops for
                      rest then resumes its journey.”

                 (Hadith reported by al-Tahhaawi and al-Tabaraani.
                     Albaani reported it with a saheeh isnaad).




• They have powers us humans do not have
• They can materialise into ugly forms such as a snake, a rat or an
  ugly man
• They can take the form of dead people
• The jinns are scared of angel Jibra‟eel (as)
                                                                  The Jinns Life Style
• The jinns life style is similar to ours
• They marry and have children just like us

    Iblis was one of the jinn‟s and he broke the command of his lord, do you take him and his
                 offspring to be your friends, apart from me. (Surah Al-Kahf, 18:50)


• They eat bones and dung, they also drink
• They live all over the world, usually in run down and dirty places
• The jinns will be held accountable for their actions just like us
• The jinns will have to stand before Allah on the day of Judgement
just like us


   But the jinn‟s know quite well that they have indeed to appear before his judgement seat.
                                     (Surah As-Saaffat, 37:158)


 Even though the jinns and humans are in two separate worlds, they have the same purpose of life.
The effects Jinns have on
        Mankind

Even though the jinns are part of the unseen world
 and we can not see them, they can still however
         effect us in our every day lives.
                                  Our Personal Jinn Companion!
• From the age of puberty we all get assigned our own personal
jinn, whose mission in life is to tempt you to do evil till the day you
die

 On the authority of Ibn Mas`ud (may allah be pleased with him) who said, the Messenger of Allah
                          (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

     "There is not any one of you except that he has been assigned his
   companion from among the jinn and his companion from among the
 angels." They said, "Even you, O Messenger of Allah?" He replied, "Even
 me, except that Allah has helped me against him and he has submitted, so
     that I am unharmed and so he orders me to do nothing but good."

                                  [Hadith reported by Muslim.]



• The Prophet Muhammad‟s (sa) jinn became a believing Muslim
• We can not give our personal jinn shahadah
• We must fight the whispers of our personal jinn
    1. The Jinns are not our friends, they are our enemies


• Just like humans, among the jinns are good jinns and evil jinns
• The evil jinns are referred to as the „Shaya‟teen‟ – The Devils
• The Shaya‟teen do not believe in Allah, and live their lives
spreading corruption on earth
• The Shaya‟teen are the allies of Shaytaan
• The allies of Shaytaan are the enemies of Allah, so how can the
evil jinns possibly be our friends???



  "Verily, We made the devils helpers and protectors for
                 those who disbelieve"
                           (Surah Al-Araf, 7:27)
      2. Seeking refuge IN the jinns = Shirk Al Akbar

• Communicating, calling out, praying, supplicating, seeking help
and assistance from the jinns is associating partners with Allah
• All acts of worship are exclusively for Allah alone


         'And verily, there were men among mankind who took
        shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (the
          jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief.‟
                             (Surah Al-Jinn, 72:6-7)



    '...will you take him (Iblees) and his children as protectors besides
                      me? And they are enemies to you!..'
                             (Surah Al-Kahf, 18: 50)


       The jinns will never help or protect us. They will only bring
               destruction to us, and lead us to the hellfire.
                                        The evils of Fortune Telling
• Fortune telling is done through the assistance of Jinns
• The Shaya‟teen go up to the lowest heaven and eavesdrop on the
angels conversation about future events that they heard from Allah.


  “And We have guarded it (the heavens) from every accursed devil, except one who is able to
      snatch a hearing and he is pursued by a brightly burning flame" (Surah Al-Hijr, 15:18)
•Thus, they only get some of the information, they return back to
the fortune teller and mixes the information with lies



  Our Prophet Muhammad (sa) said: "They (the Jinns) would pass the information back
  down until it reaches the lips of a magician or fortune-teller. Sometimes a meteor
 would overtake them before they could pass it on. If they passed it on before being
       struck, they would add to it a hundred lies" [Hadith reported by Bukhari]

• The personal jinns are also involved in fortune telling
    Oh fortune telling is not a big deal . . .

        Our Prophet Muhammad (sa) said:


 "Whosoever approaches a
fortune-teller and believes in
what he says, has disbelieved
   in what was revealed to
        Muhammed"
           [Hadith reported by Ahmed]
                        Prophet Sulayman (alayhi salaam)
• The jinns have absolute no knowledge of the future

“They followed what the Shayaateen (devils) gave out (falsely of the
 magic) in the lifetime of Sulaymaan. Sulaymaan did not disbelieve,
   but the Shayaateen (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic”
                            (Surah Baqarah 2:102)



   “Then when we decreed death for him (Sulaymaan), nothing
 informed them (the jinns) of his death except a little worm of the
earth, which kept slowly chewing away at his stick, so when he fell
down, the jinns saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they
        would not have stayed in the humiliating torment.”
                           (Surah Saba, 34:12-14).


• The jinns are full of lies and deceit and will always be up to mischief
   How we can protect
 ourselves from the Jinns

“Except him on whom your Lord has bestowed His Mercy and for that
  did He create them. And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled
   saying: Surly, I shall fill Hell with Jinns and men all together”.
                           (Surah Hud, 11:119)
                                                        Remembering Allah

• Simply seeking refuge in Allah from the jinn is a means of
protection for us


    "And if an evil whisper from Shaytaan (Satan) tries to turn you away (O
  Muhammad) (from doing good), then seek refuge in Allaah. Verily, He is the All
                  Hearer, the All Knower" (Surah Fussilat, 41:36)




          "Whoever withdraws himself from the remembrance of [Allah]
            Most Gracious, We assign to him a Shaytaan, to be his
                      comrade." (Surah Az-Zukhruf, 43:36)



Say: Laillaha illalla, Subhanallah, Alhamdulilla, Allahu
      Akbar, “Aoothubillahi minashitani rajeem”
                                        Reciting Ayaats of the Quraan
  Say: 'My Lord! I seek refuge with you from the whisperings (suggestions) of
  the shayaateen (devils). And I seek refuge with you, my Lord, lest they may
              attend (or come near) me.'" (Surah Al-Mumenoon, 23:97-98)


• Reading surah Nas, Falaq and Ikhlas
• Reading surah Al-Baqarah / its last 2 verses
• Reading Ayatul Kursi
                                         Seeking Knowledge of Islaam
  “[Satan] has no authority over those who believe and place trust in
                    their Lord." (Surah An-Nahl, 16: 99)

• One cannot truly believe in Allah until they seek knowledge of Him
• Busying once self in doing good deeds
                                                                   The Athaan
• Playing the athaan in our homes


  “When the Shaytaan hears the call
    to prayer, he runs away fast.”‟
                      (Hadith reported by Muslim).


                  Mentioning the name of Allah, making Dua
• Saying bismillah before eating / entering our homes etc.


   The Messenger of Allah (sa) said “Whoever of you desires the heart of the
 Garden should cling to the community. Shaytan is with the solitary person and
             further off from a couple.” (Hadith reported by At – Tirmidh)
  “And Shaitân will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily,
Allâh promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but
I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you,
so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I
   cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in
  associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allâh (by obeying me in
    the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the
             Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)."

                        (Surah Ibrahim, 14:22)




        Jazaak Allahu khair
                
 May Allah have mercy on us all and grant us into his Jannah. Ameen
