A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE JINN:In Quran & Bible
As salamu allaiqum.
What are Jinns?
Besides human beings, angels and other creations, Allah has made Jins, for his worship. This fact is mentioned in the holy Quran, Surah Dhariyat, verse no. 56:
ومَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ ﴿٥٦﴾ (56)
I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
Whereas humans have been created from mud, the Jinns have been made from smokeless fire. surah rehman verse no 15:
وَخَلَقَ الْجَانَّ مِن مَّارِجٍ مِّن نَّارٍ ﴿١٥﴾ (15)
And He created Jinns from fire free of smoke:
There is some basic difference between human beings and jinns. Jinns are not visible to us and this fact has been stated in the Quran in surah al araf verse no.
يَا بَنِي آدَمَ لَا يَفْتِنَنَّكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ كَمَا أَخْرَجَ أَبَوَيْكُم مِّنَ الْجَنَّةِ يَنزِعُ عَنْهُمَا لِبَاسَهُمَا لِيُرِيَهُمَا سَوْآتِهِمَا ۗ إِنَّهُ يَرَاكُمْ هُوَ وَقَبِيلُهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا تَرَوْنَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿٢٧﴾ (27)
O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he and his tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith.
The jinns have inhabited this earth before the human beings. This is mentioned in the Quran in surah hijar verse no 26,27:
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن صَلْصَالٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ ﴿٢٦﴾ (26)
We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape
; وَالْجَانَّ خَلَقْنَاهُ مِن قَبْلُ مِن نَّارِ السَّمُومِ ﴿٢٧﴾
(27) And the Jinn race, We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind.
GOOD AND EVIL JINNS:
The jinns have eating/ drinking patterns, they have sexual desires and the knowledge of good and evil .Like human beings ,they too can be categorized into good and bad ones, depending on their obedience to Allah.
THE STRENGTH OF JINNS:
Allah has granted jinns with certain powers and capabilities.They can travel at lightening speed from one place to another. Allah has mentioned about the special powers bestowed on the jinns in surah namal verse no 39,40 .
قَالَ عِفْرِيتٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن تَقُومَ مِن مَّقَامِكَ ۖ وَإِنِّي عَلَيْهِ لَقَوِيٌّ أَمِينٌ ﴿٣٩﴾ (39)
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."
قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ ۚ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ مُسْتَقِرًّا عِندَهُ قَالَ هَـٰذَا مِن فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ ۖ وَمَن شَكَرَ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ ۖ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ رَبِّي غَنِيٌّ كَرِيمٌ ﴿٤٠﴾ (40)
Said one who had knowledge of the Book: "I will bring it to thee within the twinkling of an eye!" Then when (Solomon) saw it placed firmly before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord!- to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! and if any is grateful, truly his gratitude is (a gain) for his own soul; but if any is ungrateful, truly my Lord is Free of all Needs, Supreme in Honour !"
THE LIMITS OF THEIR TRAVEL IN SPACE:
Allah has constrained their travel and they can reach only a certain level in the sky.
surah jinn verse no 8,9:
وَأَنَّا لَمَسْنَا السَّمَاءَ فَوَجَدْنَاهَا مُلِئَتْ حَرَسًا شَدِيدًا وَشُهُبًا ﴿٨﴾ (8)
'And we pried into the secrets of heaven; but we found it filled with stern guards and flaming fires
. وَأَنَّا كُنَّا نَقْعُدُ مِنْهَا مَقَاعِدَ لِلسَّمْعِ ۖ فَمَن يَسْتَمِعِ الْآنَ يَجِدْ لَهُ شِهَابًا رَّصَدًا ﴿٩﴾ (9) '
We used, indeed, to sit there in (hidden) stations, to (steal) a hearing; but any who listen now will find a flaming fire watching him in ambush.
in the Bible:
Deutoronomy, 32:17 They sacrificed to demons that were no gods, to
gods they had never known,
to new gods that had come recently,
your fathers had never dreaded. Psalm 106:37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the
Matthew 9:32 While they were going out, a man who was
demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus.Matthew 9:33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been
mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has
ever been seen in Israel."Matthew 9:34 But the Pharisees said, "It is by the prince of demons
that he drives out demons."Luke 11:15 But some of them said, "By Beelzebub, the prince of
demons, he is driving out demons."Luke 11:19 Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your
followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.Luke 11:20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the
kingdom of God has come to you.Luke 9Luke 9:1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them
power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases.Luke 8:31 And they (demons) begged him [Jesus] repeatedly not to
order them to go into the Abyss.Matthew 17:18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy,
and he was healed from that moment.
