We must be very careful with regard to the transmission of stories. It is better not to speak of them, especially among the common folk, women and children, since these stories speak of a world that is hidden from us. The jinn tell many lies and we cannot be certain that what a jinn says is true. So it is better not to spread these stories. The Prophet, SallAllahu 'alayhi wa Sellem, forbade speaking about how the Shaytaan toys with man in his dreams.
It was narrated that Jaabir ibn 'Abdullah, Radhi Allahu 'anh, said: „A Bedouin came to the Prophet, SallAllahu 'alayhi wa Sellem, and said: „O Messenger of Allaah, in my dream I saw that my head was cut off and rolled away, and I started running after it.“ The Messenger of Allaah, SallAllahu 'alayhi wa Sellem, said to the Bedouin: „La tuhaddis-in-nase bitele'uub-iš-šejtani fi menamik.“ „Do not tell people about how the Shaytaan toys with you in your dreams.“ And he said: „I heard the Prophet, SallAllahu 'alayhi wa Sellem, delivering a speech in which he said: „La juhaddisenne ehadekum bi tele'uub-iš-šejtani bihi fi menamih.“ „No one of you should speak of how the Shaytaan toys with him in his dreams.“ 1 (1 Saheeh Muslim, 2268.)
(Taken from the Book The Jinn and Human Sickness, Remedies in the Light of the Qur'aan and Sunnah, by Dr. Abu'l-Mundhir Khaleel ibn Ibraaheem Ameen)
The Muslim should understand that the jinn are inferior to and less honoured than mankind, even if a jinn is one of the righteous. Shaykh Abu Bakr Al-Jazaa'iri said: Even the righteous among the jinn are inferior to and less honoured than mankind, because the Creator Has Stated that mankind is honoured, as is proven by the verse in which Allaah Says:
„We leqad Kerremna beni Ademe we Hamelnahum fil-berri wel-bahri we Rezaqnahum min-et-Tajjibati we Feddalnahum 'ala kesirin mimmen Halaqna Tefdila.“
70. „And indeed We Have Honoured the Children of Adam, and We Have Carried them on land and sea, and Hhave Provided them with At-Taiyibat (lawful good things), and Have Preferred them above many of those whom We Have Created with a Marked Preference.“
(Interpretation of the meaning of the Qur'an, in the English Language, Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, Al-Isra The Night journey, Chapter 17 Al-Isra 111 verses, Mecca, 70. Ajet, 17:70)
No such honour Has Been Granted to the jinn, not in any of the Divinely-revealed scriptures or on the lips of any of Allaah's Messengers, SallAllahu 'alayhim wa Sellem. Thus it becomes clear that man is superior to the jinn. This is also indicated by the feelings of the jinn themselves, and their sense of inferiority and weakness before man, and by the fact that if a human seeks refuge in them, they feel proud and superior, because that means that they are being venerated and respected, when they do not in fact deserve that, so it increases them in sin and transgression, i.e., in falsehood and Kufr.
Allaah Says, Speaking of them:
„We ennehu kane ridžalun min-el-insani je'uzune bi ridžalin min-el-Džinni fezaduhum reheqa.“
6. „And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief.“
(Interpretation of the meaning of the Qur'an, in the English Language, Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, Al-Jinn The Jinn, Chapter 72 Al-Jinn 28 verses, Mecca, 6. Ajet, 72:6)
This is also borne out by the fact that, if a human seeks their help or seeks help by the names of their leaders, or swears by their leaders, they respond to him and meet his needs. All of that happens because they feel themselves to be weak and insignificant before the sons of Adam, who are honoured by Allaah, because Adam believed in Allaah and worshipped Him, affirming His Oneness (Tawheed) and His Lordship, worshipping Him Alone, and affirming His Names and Attributes. But if man does not have that faith, then the righteous jinn are better than the Kuffaar and Mushrikeen among the sons of Adam and are superior to them. 1 (1 'Aqeedat Al-Mu'min by Abu Bakr Jaabir Al-Jazaa'iri, p. 228.).
Some of the jinn are righteous believers, and some call others to Allaah, and some have knowledge of Hadeeth. Shaykh Al-Islam Taqiy Al-Deen Ibn Taymiyah said in Al-Furqaan Al-Kabeer.
The jinn may come to one who is in a remote area, a king or a governor, and he may be a Kaafir who has got lost and become thirsty and is fearing death, so he comes to him in the form of a human being, and gives him water to drink, and calls him to Islam, so he becomes Muslim and he feeds him, and he says to him: „Who are you?“ and he says, „So-and-so.“
He supported this with a story of something that happened to him, as he says:
„Something like this happened to me in the Citadel. I was in the Citadel, and something like this happened to a Turkish prince from the east. That person said to him, I am Ibn Taymiyah, and that prince did not doubt that he was me. The king of Mardeen was told about that and that king of Mardeen sent news of that to Egypt, when I was imprisoned in the well. They were astounded, because I had not exited the well. But this was a jinn who loved us, so he did a lot of things for the Turks that I used to do for them. When they came to Damascus I used to call them to Islam, and if one of them uttered the Shahaadatayn, we would feed him whatever we could. So he did the same to them as I used to do, intending to honour me thereby. Some people said to me: Is it not possible that that could have been an angel? I said: „No, because an angel cannot lie, but he (the jinn) said, I am Ibn Taymiyah, when he knew that he was lying by saying that. 1 (1 Masaa'ib Al-Insaan by Ibn Muflih Al-Hanbali, 132-133.).
It should be noted that the jinn are not all ugly and dark as they appear in the stories of possession and causing fear and harm. There are some jinn who are more righteous than humans, and some jinn have a glowing record of faith, piety and calling others to Allaah, as is mentioned at the beginning of Soorah Al-Jinn, which speaks of a group of jinn who listened to the Qur'aan being recited on the lips of the Messenger, SallAllahu 'alayhi wa Sellem, and they went back and warned their people.
„Qul uhije ilejje ennehusteme'a neferun min-el-džinni feqalu inna semi'ana qur'anen 'adžeba. Jehdi il-er-rušdi fe amenna bihi we len nušrike bi rabbina ehada.“
1. „Say (O Muhammad SAW): „It Has Been Revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinns listened (to this Quran). They said: Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Quran)!
2. It Guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allah).“
(Interpretation of the meaning of the Qur'an, in the English Language, Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali & Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, Al-Jinn The Jinn, Chapter 72 Al-Jinn 28 verses, Mecca, 1-2- Verses, 72:1-2)
„We iz sarefna ilejke neferen min-el-džinni jestemi'un-el-qur'ane felemma hadaruhu qalu ensitu felemma qudije wellew ila qawmihim munzirin.“
29. „And (remember) when We Sent towards you (Muhammad SAW) Nafran (three to ten persons) of the jinns, (quietly) listening to the Quran, when they stood in the presence thereof, they said: „Listen in silence!" And when it was finished, they returned to their people, as warners.“
