What is a Jin?

Jinn is a shape-shifting spirit supposedly formed of smoke and air with its origins in pre-Islamic Arabian religious systems. Jinn is said to be able to take shapes of humans and animals.

The word ‘jinn’ in Arabic has two meanings: demons or spirits and hidden from sight. Jinn is native to Arabic mythology. Pagan Arabs used to worship Jinn long before Islam was introduced. These spirits were said to have certain magic and crafts which could turn land into fertile plots for agriculture. It is believed that Jinn has predated humans.

There are numerous mentions of Jinn in the Quran, and are thus also said to be a part of Islamic tradition. In the 7th century, with the introduction of Islam, Prophet Muhammad stated that jinn existed as non-material spirits having their free will. Jinn is a being with the ability to choose between faith and unbelief, along with moral or immoral behaviour. They have a mysterious nature and are categorised as neither good nor evil. Jinn is said to be dual-dimensional. What Happens After Death? 'Ghost Whisperer' Claims To See Heaven During Two Months of Coma, Gives Insight Into Afterlife!.
