The Jinns, Satan's Messengers

There exists a totally separate species from mankind, eventhough they are invisble to us, they have succeeded over the ages in enslaving the majority of the human beings, now we are in a planet dominated by them, the Jinns.

1- Who are they?
2- Possession by the Jinns.
3- What do they want from us?
4- Don't blame it on the Jinns!

1- Who are the Jinn beings ?

-According to our only proven book, Quran, they are the descendants of Satan, his tribe:

[18:50] We said to the angels, "Fall prostrate before Adam." They fell prostrate, except Satan. He became a jinn, for he disobeyed the order of His Lord. Will you choose him and his descendants as lords instead of Me, even though they are your enemies? What a miserable substitute!

They are totally invisble to us:

[7:27] O children of Adam, do not let the devil dupe you as he did when he caused the eviction of your parents from Paradise, and the removal of their garments to expose their bodies. He and his tribe see you, while you do not see them. We appoint the devils as companions of those who do not believe.

- Eventhough they are invisible, they have been granted a certain kind of power, the power of whispering:

[14:22] And the devil will say, after the judgment had been issued, "GOD has promised you the truthful promise, and I promised you, but I broke my promise. I had no power over you; I simply invited you, and you accepted my invitation. Therefore, do not blame me, and blame only yourselves. My complaining cannot help you, nor can your complaining help me. I have disbelieved in your idolizing me. The transgressors have incurred a painful retribution."

- Why? in order to put all the rebels in the test, expose the wicked and distinguish the righteous:

[15:42] "You have no power over My servants. You only have power over the strayers who follow you.

-In Quran what applies to satan, applies to his tribe, the Jinns. And what applies to Adam applies also to his descendants, the Humans.

 As you may have read on the article (Satan), God sent Satan and his tribe, the Jinns to earth to act as companions for Adam and his descendants, the Humans. Satan is allowed to introduce his viscious, polytheistic ideas to the human beings, some Humans will choose him as their master (temporary god), while the righteous won't follow him:

[2:30] Recall that your Lord said to the angels, "I am placing a representative (a temporary god) on Earth." They said, "Will You place therein one who will spread evil therein and shed blood, while we sing Your praises, glorify You, and uphold Your absolute authority?" He said, "I know what you do not know."

-Satan was the reason of the eviction of the rebels to earth, he is respited till the day of resurrection, in order to put all of them in a final test:

[7:18] He said, "Get out therefrom, despised and defeated. Those among them who follow you, I will fill Hell with you all.

[17:64] "You may entice them with your voice, and mobilize all your forces and all your men against them, and share in their money and children, and promise them. Anything the devil promises is no more than an illusion.

2- Possession by the Jinns :

It is evident that people get possessed by entities, the news is, these entities are the Jinns, Satan's descendants.

[17:62] He said, "Since You have honored him over me, if You respite me till the Day of Resurrection, I will possess all his descendants, except a few."

[58:19] The devil has possessed them, and has caused them to disregard GOD's message. These are the party of the devil. Absolutely, the party of the devil are the losers.

- The Jinns are made of some kind of energy, which allows them to either move in the universe, or possess the Humans, and control their bodies and minds:

[15:26] We created the human being from aged mud, like the potter's clay. [15:27] As for the jinns, we created them, before that, from blazing fire.

- For every new born, a Human as well as a Jinns souls are assigned to that body, thus everybody starts life with domination to some extent by his or her companion, why? because we forgot about God at some point before we came here and followed Satan, it was a totally free choice [33:72]. Everybody begins his life with polytheistic inclination, the sincere at some point take heed of the reminders that God send them and repent, thus God, the Most Gracious admits them back into His mercy.

[67:2] The One who created death and life for the purpose of distinguishing those among you who would do better. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving.

[34:21] He never had any power over them except that we could distinguish those who believe in the Hereafter from those who are doubtful about it. Your Lord is in full control of all things.

[7:179] We have committed to Hell multitudes of jinns and humans. They have minds with which they do not understand, eyes with which they do not see, and ears with which they do not hear. They are like animals; no, they are far worse - they are totally unaware.

- The evil thoughts everyone of us get are coming from the Jinn devils, either the companions or the roaming devils around us, even the righteous get these evil thoughts, Moses knew about them, they drove him to shed blood (which further proves that [2:30] is about Satan),

[28:15] Once he entered the city unexpectedly, without being recognized by the people. He found two men fighting; one was (a Hebrew) from his people, and the other was (an Egyptian) from his enemies. The one from his people called on him for help against his enemy. Moses punched him, killing him. He said, "This is the work of the devil; he is a real enemy, and a profound misleader."

- Some Jinns are hopeless devils, and some are righteous:

The Jinn said:

[72:11] " `Some of us are righteous, and some are less than righteous; we follow various paths.

- If God knows that you are a righteous soul, He will give you a righteous companion, however this companion would keep whispering to you evil thoughts, untill you stop him by God's leave and help, or untill he takes heed of God's reminders. As for the wicked, who disregard the messages and forget God, He assigns to them an evil, devilish companion, and they share the same fate.

The righteous companions:

[72:12] " `We knew full well that we can never run away from GOD on Earth; we can never run away and escape.[72:13] "When we heard the guidance, we believed therein. Anyone who believes in his Lord will never fear any injustice, nor any affliction.

The wicked companions:

[6:129] We thus match the wicked to be companions of each other, as a punishment for their transgressions.

[43:36] Anyone who disregards the message of the Most Gracious, we appoint a devil to be his constant companion.

[43:37] Such companions will divert them from the path, yet make them believe that they are guided.
[43:38] When he comes before us he will say, "Oh I wish you were as far from me as the two easts. What a miserable companion!"
[43:39] It will not console you on that day, as transgressors, that both of you will share in the retribution.

3- What do they want from us ?

To answer this question, we need to go to the most important scene in history, when for the first time, a member of the heavenly society, Satan, rebelled against God and saw his powers as independent from the Creator.

[7:12] He said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I ordered you?" He said, "I am better than he; You created me from fire, and created him from mud."

God ordered every single soul in the heavenly society to prostrate before Adam, which means to serve him from then on, this didn't mean that Adam is better than them, it was just a test to expose those who harbor bad thoughts about God (that He isn't just) and those hwo harbor doubts about His absolute authority, Satan (and the Jinns) refused that order, they developed a new center (god) themselves, before that everybody knew and believed that only God posseses power (provisions, knowledge...etc), but for the rebels, Satan and his tribe, they saw their powers independent of God, a power that belongs only to them, that only them should be praised for!, the angels knew full well that their powers are from God, therefore, He is the only one worthy of being praised (which they did day and night).

This scene revealed important traits of Satan and his tribe:

1- They are jealous, this jealousy results in one of two forms:

a- Out of jealousy, some of the Jinns hate the Humans and only want their destruction, this is most clear in those who tortue, kill or even smoke, destroying themselves knowingly!, they are dominated by the Jinns, others ignite fights and wars for no reason but to destroy the Humans!.  They even drive some to kill their own children (abortion) !

Thus were the idol worshipers duped by their idols, to the extent of killing their own children.
In fact, their idols inflict great pain upon them, and confuse their religion for them. Had GOD willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications.

b- Some other Jinns fell in the other extreme of idolworship, they idolize the Humans because they feel that God has honored them over the Jinns!. This is most obvious in those who idolize their religious leaders, or even the modern celebrities.

He said, "
Since You have honored him over me, if You respite me till the Day of Resurrection, I will possess all his descendants, except a few."

The above characteristics can be easily detected in the Jinn-dominated human beings, those who accept the Jinn's control, and end up carrying out satan's agenda of destroying the human race, his most hated race.

2- Instead of serving us (as per God's design), they want to control us :

Since they have rebelled against God and His command of serving the human being, they want to turn it around, by making the humans submit to their control. They want to bind us all in slavery, unfortunately the majority have willingly surrendered to this illegal occupation by the Jinns!

The day will come when He summons all of them (and says): "O you jinns, you have claimed multitudes of humans." Their human companions will say, "Our Lord, we enjoyed each others' company until we wasted the life span You had set for us." He will say, "Hell is your destiny." They abide therein forever, in accordance with GOD's will. Your Lord is Wise, Omniscient.

In the above verse, the human companions say they and the Jinns have enjoyed each other! how?

3- Mechanisms of control (Marionette):

God didn't leave us without guidance, out of His mercy, He gave us the details of the second most important scene in history, when Adam was duped by Satan, let's study it to find how he was duped:

[7:20] The devil whispered to them, in order to reveal their bodies, which were invisible to them. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you from this tree, except to prevent you from becoming angels, and from attaining eternal existence."

[20:120] But the devil whispered to him, saying, "O Adam, let me show you the tree of eternity and unending kingship."

The devil promised Adam that if he ate (an action) from the tree (a symbol of people and material things around us, an idol), he will get eternity, kingship and higher rank of becoming an angel (a promise of gratification),

Lets study carefully these components of our daily tests :

1- An action
2- An idol
3- A promise of gratification (That creates a bond between the Human and his idol)

Let's consider the case of a gambler:

1- An action ----> Gambling
2- An idol -----> Money
3- A promise --------> Pleasure and getting rich!

- The best way to control somebody is to use his weak point to control him, Satan and the Jinns use effective techniques to manipulate people like puppets, extreme attachment or detachement from something or someone could easily form a bond between the human being and his idol, resulting in total vulenrability infront of Satan's control, from there Satan takes over, using you as a tool to fulfill his wishes, either by duping other people or destroying yourself.

Conclusion: Satan (the temp.god) uses creatures (idols) to bind people in slavery to him by using extremes (attachment or detachmenty) through his lies (promises), once you surrender to his control, you start accomplishing his Satanic agenda without thinking, this is called idolworship.

The main goals of the Jinns:

1- Gaining control over the human beings, thus becoming gods beside God [34:41].

2- By gaining control, they divert people from God, they turn them unappreciative towards God's infinite blessings [7:17].

They promise us gratification and satisfaction:

-Since they are professional liars, they promise us gratification through idolizing someone or something, but since only God has the power to give satisfaction, we end up unsatisfied, because of following powerless gods other than God:

[4:120] He promises them and entices them; what the devil promises is no more than an illusion.

-For it is decreed that nothing can be gained through the powerless Jinns:

[7:33] Say, "My Lord prohibits only evil deeds, be they obvious or hidden, and sins, and unjustifiable aggression, and to set up beside GOD powerless idols, and to say about GOD what you do not know."

-They have no power whatsoever to grant us anything, why follow them instead of God ?

O people, here is a parable that you must ponder carefully: the idols you set up beside GOD can never create a fly, even if they banded together to do so. Furthermore, if the fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; weak is the pursuer and the pursued.

-Their power is actually nill !

Those who believe are fighting for the cause of GOD, while those who disbelieve are fighting for the cause of tyranny. Therefore, you shall fight the devil's allies; the devil's power is nil.

-They promise us an illusion, this visible life, stripped of any real feeling or meaning!

Say, "Consider the idols you have set up beside GOD; show me what on earth have they created." Do they own any partnership in the heavens? Have we given them a book wherein there is no doubt? Indeed, what the transgressors promise one another is no more than an illusion.

-We give them power only when we accept their evil whispers:

[14:22] And the devil will say, after the judgment had been issued, "GOD has promised you the truthful promise, and I promised you, but I broke my promise. I had no power over you; I simply invited you, and you accepted my invitation. Therefore, do not blame me, and blame only yourselves. My complaining cannot help you, nor can your complaining help me. I have disbelieved in your idolizing me. The transgressors have incurred a painful retribution."

-God, the Creator of the Heavens and Earth is the only one who posseses any power of any kind:

Yet, some people set up idols to rival GOD, and love them as if they are GOD. Those who believe love GOD the most. If only the transgressors could see themselves when they see the retribution! They will realize then that all power belongs to GOD alone, and that GOD's retribution is awesome.

-He controls emotions, He controls our degree of satisfaction:

[53:43] He is the One who makes you laugh or cry.

-What is the result of seeking power (Gratification and satisfaction) from the Jinns!?

1- Psychological and physical damage (Pain, guilt and regrets as well as accidents):

Its inevitable that whoever steps outside the system of God, by following the Jinns will be afflicted by pain, accidents or disease, because the body is designed to submit to God, it is designed to function properly in God's system only.

" `Human beings used to seek power through jinn beings, but they only afflicted them with a lot of adversity.

2- Desperation and lost dreams:

The disatisfaction drives the idolworshiper to seek more of the drug, duped by his master (the Jinn companion), so he keeps revolving in a neverending orbit around his idol with no hope of satisfaction, this is the hell surrounding the disbelievers.

[59:16] They are like the devil: he says to the human being, "Disbelieve," then as soon as he disbelieves, he says, "I disown you. I fear GOD, Lord of the universe."

As for those who disbelieve, their works are like a mirage in the desert. A thirsty person thinks that it is water. But when he reaches it, he finds that it is nothing, and he finds GOD there instead, to requite him fully for his works. GOD is the most efficient reckoner.

[13:14] Imploring Him is the only legitimate supplication, while the idols they implore beside Him, cannot ever respond. Thus, they are like those who stretch their hands to the water, but nothing reaches their mouths. The supplications of the disbelievers are in vain.

Some of them would say, "Give me permission (to stay behind); do not impose such a hardship on me." In fact, they have thus incurred a terrible hardship; Hell is surrounding the disbelievers.

-To sum it up, here are some of the most obvious traits of the Jinn-dominated Human beings:

1- Obsession with something or someone.

- Unjustified hate or fear of something or someone.

2- Preoccupation with this life.

These people are preoccupied with this fleeting life, while disregarding - just ahead of them - a heavy day.

3- Domineering personalities (Tyranny) or the other end, Apathy.

4- Racism, prejudice and biased opinions.

-That doesn't mean that seeking money, spouse or anything is wrong, on the contrary, because God is the most Merciful, He didn't prohibit real joy, He created us and knows our weakness and needs. The point is when we lose sight of God and forget to relate the thing or person to Him, we fall in the trap of being unappreciative,  which is the very thing Satan wants. So our attitude should be : seeking God's bounties in order to thank Him for it and come closer to Him.

[62:10] Once the prayer is completed, you may spread through the land to seek GOD's bounties, and continue to remember GOD frequently, that you may succeed.

[4:25]Those among you who cannot afford to marry free believing women, may marry believing slave women. GOD knows best about your belief, and you are equal to one another, as far as belief is concerned. You shall obtain permission from their guardians before you marry them, and pay them their due dowry equitably. They shall maintain moral behavior, by not committing adultery, or having secret lovers. Once they are freed through marriage, if they commit adultery, their punishment shall be half of that for the free women. Marrying a slave shall be a last resort for those unable to wait. To be patient is better for you. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. [4:26] GOD wills to explain things for you, and to guide you through past precedents, and to redeem you. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.[4:27] GOD wishes to redeem you, while those who pursue their lusts wish that you deviate a great deviation.

[4:28] GOD wishes to lighten your burden, for the human being is created weak.

God has a kingdom on earth, yet we cannot see it because of the spread of corruption and material worship, this kingdom is the real kingdom. You can only see it and enjoy its advantages if you follow God's system detailed in the scripture (Torah, Bible or Quran), however Quran is the final version of the scripture, the proven, clear one.

For example God knows that men and women need each other emotionally and physically, He put a system of righteousness called marriage, whoever follows this system specifically as detailed in the book, will be granted all the advantages of it, love, contentment and real joy (full satisfaction). And knowing that these rewards come only from God, we become more appreciative and more devoted to Him alone, which is the main goal.

[30:21] Among His proofs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves, in order to have tranquility and contentment with each other, and He placed in your hearts love and care towards your spouses. In this, there are sufficient proofs for people who think.

[46:15] We enjoined the human being to honor his parents. His mother bore him arduously, gave birth to him arduously, and took intimate care of him for thirty months. When he reaches maturity, and reaches the age of forty, he should say, "My Lord, direct me to appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to do the righteous works that please You. Let my children be righteous as well. I have repented to You; I am a submitter."

As for the strayers who follow their Jinn masters, they only get temporary pleasure from adultery, void of any meaning or feeling, unfortunately this dissatisfaction drives them to indulge more in the mirage (the idol) inhope that they could eventually find the real satisfaction! however they keep revolving in a never-ending cycle of self indulgence on expense of righteousness and God.

[17:32] You shall not commit adultery; it is a gross sin, and an evil behavior.

You can watch living examples of this craze all around you, people seeking satisfaction and security from the wrong sources using wrong methods never decreed by God, thus falling in the trap of following Satan's laws and system, they end up miserable and dissatisfied as all the subjects of Satan.

[3:197] They only enjoy temporarily, then end up in Hell; what a miserable destiny!

[20:124] "As for the one who disregards My message, he will have a miserable life, and we resurrect him, on the Day of Resurrection, blind."

They live like animals seeking temporary gratification and pleasure not the real joy  promised by God,

[47:12] GOD admits those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens with flowing streams. As for those who disbelieve, they live and eat like the animals eat, then end up in the hellfire.

While God has promised the truth, real satisfaction and joy in this life and forever:

Anyone who works righteousness, male or female, while believing, we will surely grant them a happy life in this world, and we will surely pay them their full recompense (on the Day of Judgment) for their righteous works.

[7:32] Say, "Who prohibited the nice things GOD has created for His creatures, and the good provisions?" Say, "Such provisions are to be enjoyed in this life by those who believe. Moreover, the good provisions will be exclusively theirs on the Day of Resurrection." We thus explain the revelations for people who know.

[2:268] The devil promises you poverty and commands you to commit evil, while GOD promises you forgiveness from Him and grace. GOD is Bounteous, Omniscient.

Perhaps Satan's testimony on the day of judgment will be sufficient to convince you that only God's promise is the truth:

[14:22] And the devil will say, after the judgment had been issued, "GOD has promised you the truthful promise, and I promised you, but I broke my promise. I had no power over you; I simply invited you, and you accepted my invitation. Therefore, do not blame me, and blame only yourselves. My complaining cannot help you, nor can your complaining help me. I have disbelieved in your idolizing me. The transgressors have incurred a painful retribution."

- The balance is restored only when the Human being overthrows the Jinn devils and regain control of his mind and body by saying No to the evil whispers which seek to make him stuck in something or someone, and most importantly by imploring God and seeking refuge in Him from the devils,

[7:200] When the devil whispers to you any whisper, seek refuge in GOD; He is Hearer, Omniscient.

[23:97] Say, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the devils.[23:98] "And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they come near me."

Only then will the Jinn being submit to God's design and both function harmoniusly and be redeemed back in God's mercy. God wants the Jinns and the Humans to submit to His design, the humans in charge of their bodies and minds, while their companions serving them, this is the purpose of Creation,

[51:56] I did not create the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone.

4- Don't blame it on the Jinns !

Some people find it convinient to blame others, either God or the Jinns for their own wrongdoings, however, God explained in Quran that we are totally free to make a choice, either Him or Satan. God doesn't interfere with our decisions, its us who decide whether to uphold God's absolute authority over His creation, or to follow the powerless Jinns. Eventhough they are the ones who whisper evil, we are the ones who accept their invitation!. Therefore on the day of judgment both the Human and Jinn companion will share the same fate equitably after the Jinn companion gives his testimony,.

[50:20] The horn is blown; this is the promised day.[50:21] Every soul comes with a herder and a witness. [50:22] You used to be oblivious to this. We now remove your veil; today, your vision is (as strong as) steel.[50:23] The companion said, "Here is my formidable testimony."[50:24] Throw into Gehenna every stubborn disbeliever.[50:25] Forbidder of charity, aggressor, full of doubt.[50:26] He set up beside GOD another god. Throw him into severe retribution.[50:27] His companion said, "Our Lord, I did not mislead him; he was far astray."[50:28] He said, "Do not feud in front of Me; I have sufficiently warned you.[50:29] "Nothing can be changed now. I am never unjust towards the people."

[43:39] It will not console you on that day, as transgressors, that both of you will share in the retribution.

Be truthful, and reclaim your position in charge of your body and mind. Lying starts from accepting a master other than God, say No to the satanic whispers and start living a righteous life based on reverence of God alone. You are responsible, don't blame it on the Jinns!

[17:36] You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.

The Choice is yours, Satan or God ?

[16:51] GOD has proclaimed: "Do not worship two gods; there is only one god. You shall reverence Me alone."
