Jinn in the Quran



Harun Yahya

JINN ARE CREATED TO WORSHIP ALLAH

I only created jinn and man to worship Me. (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 56)

JINN ARE CREATED OUT OF FIRE

We created the jinn before out of the fire of a searing wind. (Surat al-Hijr, 27)

JINN CAN NEVER BRING THE LIKE OF THE QUR'AN

Say: 'If both men and jinn banded together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could never produce anything like it, even if they backed each other up.' (Surat al-Isra, 88)

SURAT AL-JINN IN THE QUR'AN

Say: 'It has been revealed to me that a band of the jinn listened and said, "We have heard a most amazing Recitation. It leads to right guidance so we believe in it and will not associate anyone with our Lord. He - exalted be the Majesty of our Lord ! -has neither wife nor son. The fools among us have uttered a vile slander against Allah. We did not think it possible for either man or jinn to tell a lie against Allah. Certain men from among mankind used to seek refuge with certain men from among the jinn but they increased them in wickedness. They thought - as you also think - that Allah would never raise up anyone. We tried, as usual, to travel to heaven in search of news but found it filled with fierce guards and flaming fires. We used to sit there on special seats to listen in. But anyone listening now finds a fiery flaming fire in wait for him. We have no idea whether evil is intended for those on the earth, or whether their Lord intends them to be rightly guided. Among us there are some who are righteous and some who are other than that. We follow many different paths. We realised we would never thwart Allah on earth and would never thwart Him by flight, and when we heard the guidance, we believed in it. Anyone who believes in his Lord need fear neither belittlement nor tyranny. Some of us are Muslims and some are deviators. Those who have become Muslim are those who sought right guidance; the deviators will be firewood for Hellfire."' If only they were to go straight on the Path, We would give them abundant water to drink so that We could test them by it. Whoever turns aside from the remembrance of his Lord, He will introduce him to an arduous punishment. All the places of worhsip belong to Allah so do not call on anyone else besides Allah. When the servant of Allah stands calling on Him, they almost swarm all over him. Say: 'I call only upon my Lord and do not associate anyone else with Him.' Say: 'I possess no power to do you harm or to guide you right.' Say: 'No one can protect me from Allah and I will never find any refuge apart from Him -only in transmitting from Allah and His Messages. As for him who disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he will have the Fire of Hell, remaining in it timelessly, for ever and ever.' So that when they see what they were promised, they will know who has less support and smaller numbers. Say: 'I do not know whether what you are promised is close or whether my Lord will appoint a longer time before it.' He is the Knower of the Unseen, and does not divulge His Unseen to anyone -except a Messenger with whom He is well pleased, and then He posts sentinels before him and behind him, so that He may know that they have indeed transmitted the Messages of their Lord. He encompasses what is in their hands and has counted the exact number of everything. (Surat al-Jinn, 1-28)

JINN HAVE LIMITED POWER

Company of jinn and men, if you are able to pierce through the confines of the heavens and earth, pierce through them.You will not pierce through except with a clear authority. So which of your Lord's blessings do you both then deny? He will pursue you with a piercing flame and fiery smoke, and you will not be helped. (Surat ar-Rahman, 33-35)

IBLIS IS ONE OF THE JINN

When We said to the angels, 'Prostrate yourselves to Adam,' they prostrated with the exception of Iblis. He was one of the jinn and wantonly deviated from his Lord's command. Do you take him and his offspring as protectors apart from Me when they are your enemy? How evil is the exchange the wrongdoers make! (Surat al-Kahf, 50)

JINN TRANSMIT THE QUR'AN TO THEIR PEOPLE

And We diverted a group of jinn towards you to listen to the Qur'an. When they were in earshot of it they said, 'Be quiet and listen.' When it was over they went back to their people, warning them. They said, 'Our people, we have heard a Book which was sent down after Musa, confirming what came before it, guiding to the truth and to a straight path. Our people, respond to Allah's caller and believe in Him. He will forgive you some of your wrong actions and save you from a painful punishment. Those who do not respond to Allah's caller cannot thwart Allah on earth and have no protectors apart from Him. Such people are clearly misguided.' (Surat al-Ahqaf, 29-32)

jInn are warned In the world

On the Day We gather them all together: 'Company of jinn, you gained many followers among mankind.' And their friends among mankind will say, 'Our Lord, we benefited from one another, and now we have reached the term which You determined for us.' He will say, 'The Fire is your home. You will be in it timelessly, for ever, except as Allah wills. Your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.' In that way We make the wrongdoers friends of one another because of what they have done. Company of jinn and men! Did not Messengers come to you from among yourselves relating My Signs to you and warning you of the encounter of this Day of yours? They will say, 'We testify against ourselves.' The life of "this world deluded them and they will testify against themselves that they were disbelievers. (Surat al-Anam, 128-130)

JINN AT THE SERVICE OF MESSENGERS AND THEIR SERVICES

An imp of the jinn said, 'I will bring it to you before you get up from your seat. I am strong and trustworthy enough to do it.' (Surat an-Naml, 39)

And We gave Sulayman power over the wind - a month's journey in the morning and a month in the evening. And We made a fount of molten copper flow out for him. And some of the jinn worked in front of him by his Lord's permission. And if a single one of them deviates at all from Our command, We let him taste the punishment of the Searing Blaze. (Surah Saba, 12)

He (Sulayman) said (to Hoopoe), 'We will soon see if you have told the truth or are a liar. Take this letter of mine and deliver it to them and then withdraw from them a little and see how they respond.'She said, 'Council! A noble letter has been delivered to me. (Surat an-Naml, 27-29)

And the satans, every builder and diver, and others of them, yoked together in chains. (Surah Sad, 37-38)

Sulayman's troops, made up of jinn and men and birds, were assembled for him, paraded in tight ranks. (Surat an-Naml, 17)

THE CLAIM OF DISBELIEVERS THAT THERE IS A
KINSHIP BETWEEN ALLAH AND THE JINN

They claim there is a blood-tie between Him and the jinn but the jinn know very well that they will be arraigned. (Surat as-Saffat, 158)

DENIERS MAKE THE JINN ASSOCIATES WITH ALLAH

Yet they make the jinn co-partners with Allah when He created them! And they atttribute sons and daughters to Him without any knowledge. Glory be to Him! He is far above what they describe! (Surat al-Anam, 100)

SOME PEOPLE WORSHIP THE JINN

They will say, 'Glory be to You! You are our Protector, not them. No, they were worshipping the jinn. They mostly had faith in them.' (Surah Saba, 41)

JINN'S WHISPERING INTO HEART

… from the evil of the insidious whisperer who whispers in people's breasts and comes from the jinn and from mankind.' (Surat an-Nas, 4-6)


THE JINN ARE ENEMIES OF THE PROPHET

In this way We have appointed as enemies to every Prophet, satans from both mankind and from the jinn, who inspire each other with delusions by means of specious words - if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so abandon them and all they fabricate. (Surat al-Anam, 112)

 THEY BECOME INTIMATE COMPANIONS TO THEIR FOLLOWERS

We have assigned close comrades to them who have made what is before them and behind them seem good to them. And the statement about the nations, both of jinn and men, who passed away before them has proved true of them as well. Certainly they were lost. (Surah Fussilat, 25)

 jInn on the day of rIsIng

When heaven is split apart and goes red like dregs of oil. So which of your Lord's blessings do you both then deny? That Day no man or jinn will be asked about his sin. (Surat ar-Rahman, 37-39)

 DISBELIEVING JINN WILL ENTER HELL

'Had We so willed We could have given guidance to everyone, but now My Words are shown to be true: that I shall fill up Hell entirely with jinn and human beings. (Surat as-Sajda, 13)

We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even worse! They are the unaware. (Surat al-A'raf, 179)

He will say, 'Enter the Fire together with the nations of jinn and men who have passed away before you.' Each time a nation enters, it will curse its sister nation, until, when they are all gathered together in it, the last of them will say to the first, 'Our Lord, those are the ones who misguided us, so give them a double punishment in the Fire.' He will say, 'Each will receive double. But you do not know it.' (Surat al-A'raf, 38)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
