Marriage between the jinn and humans

People often talk about men marrying jinn, or some woman marrying one of the jinn; or a woman being proposed to by one. Old scholars mentioned many such reports from the early generations and they pointed to the existence of marriages between humans and jinn.

Ibn Taimiya said,

“Humans and jinn have gotten married and have had children; this has happened often and is well-known.” (Majmoo Fatwa, vol 19: p 39)

After assuming it to be possible, many of the scholars showed a dislike for such a marriage. Scholars such as Ishaaq, al-Hasan, Qataada and al-Hukum were known to have shown a dislike for it. Although they could not find any clear text that would prohibit it but they themselves did not like for it to occur and Imam Malik gave his reason for saying so,

“I hate that it would be the case that we would find a woman who is pregnant and we ask her, ‘Who is your husband?’ and she replies, ‘One of the jinn’ Much evil would be the result of that.”

The scholars, in reply to such incidents, answered that – From the blessings of Allah is that He created for mankind spouses of their own species. Allah says in the Quran,

“And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.” (Al-Rum: 21)

Even if it could occur, it would not be possible to have that companionship and love between the spouses due to their different species. The goal and wisdom of marriage would not be attainable since the tranquility and love mentioned by Allah in the Quran would be impossible.

It should be noted that there is no direct evidence for such an occurrence. The Prophet (peace be upon him) never referred to such a practice. The narrations concerning such incidences from later authorities cannot, in themselves, be considered proofs concerning this matter. Furthermore, there does not seem to be any evidence that any children existed that had characteristics of being partly jinn and partly human.

Today, in the United Arab Emirates, there is a clan that claims to be descendants from a female jinn. However, their characteristics are no different from any other human. Hence, it is impossible to prove their claim.

Yet what points to the possibility of marriage between the two species, is the mention of female companions (hoor) in paradise. Allah says about them in Surah Ar-Rahmaan.

“In them (paradise) are women limiting [their] glances, untouched before them by man or jinni-” (Ar-Rahmaan: 56)

And only Allah knows Best

    so is that a yes?you are allowed?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Different people have different opinions, but Allaah has created Men for Women, and Male jinn for a Female Jinn. so if a Jinn can marry a Human, it does not at all mean that they are allowed to do so. An easy example is the teachings of the Prophet (pbuh), his life tells us he did not marry a Jinn; nor did any prophet in the past do as such. In fact, the Prophet (pbuh) told us to warn Jinn to leave our homes; which was originally said for the Muslim-Jinn. So I believe the answer is No, we cannot marry/be in contact with Jinn.

      • hero1lko says:

        ASSALAMUALAEKUM!
        Brother Muhammad Ali, I think u are wrong, Prophet Sulaiman(AS) married Bilqees, who was according to several scholars a jinn,

    • Mohammad Nazakat Ali says:

      There are 7 billion people in this world now. Half of them is man and balance half is woman. Why man or woman needs to marry a Jinn? They are different species. Creation of smokeless fire. We are from clay. How people even think of making physical contact with Jinn? Yes it is said that they can take different form but originally they are smokeless fire. Does science permit this physical connection where jinn does not have any body to touch.

  2. maryam says:

    you say there is a difference in opinion,and also it says in the article that earlier generations used to get married to jinns,but the prophet saw did not forbit this kind of marriage did he?and why is it haram to keep contact with jinns there are good ones to,so i dont believe its forbidden.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      I speak of the times of Ibn Taimiyya, for none such events are mentioned from the times of the Prophet (pbuh). But We DO know that, when Jinn converted to Islam, the Prophet (pbuh) commanded people to beware of Jinn in their houses. For they have converted to Islam, and it is best to tell them to leave your homes. If it does not leave after you warn them three times, then you should kill him for it is not a Muslim Jinn, but a Shaitan.

      So with that said, the Prophet (pbuh) would not even allow good jinn in our house. How do we then marry them? You can look for reference to the hadith in the article Jinn of the House

      Wa huwa ala kulli shay’in qadeer

  3. maryam says:

    what if the jinn takes a human form?can you marry it then?

  4. mariam says:

    why do you so much dislike for jinns?there are good and bad humans as there are good and bad jinn,the good ones read quran and salah as any other muslim,and if they are good muslims,why do you class them bad?

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      When did I say that I dislike them? or that I say bad about them? Shaitan/Iblees was a Jinn blessed for his worship! I agree there are great many good Jinn in the realm of Jinn, and I realize that they can be more obedient to Allaah, than we are. Those who class Jinn as Bad are wrong indeed.

      • aisha.k says:

        I want to see the jinn? where can we see them I want to see how the jinn look like

        • muhamad says:

          are u sure you want to see a jinn…..it is possible but can follow the rules and also make sure you wont be afraid? Write to me…moha.abubakar@gmail.com

          • hi says:

            I would stay well away from getting in touch with jinns. They will very likely to ask something in return, and u may end up in a big big problem. I think calling jinns to come to be friends with u means using magic, which is not allowed and very dangerous.

          You dont need to get to know jinns so much, learn about islam, amd how to protect urself.

          dont play with u life why take such a huge risk, dont be stupid sister.

          So did you see the jinn @aisha.k?

  5. MONICA says:

    as-salaam alykum brothers and sister’s, forgive me if i am wrong, but i read a book about jinns a very long time ago, there have been cases of such marrige but it stated in the book that jinni and humans cannot have children, for one is made from smokeless fire and the humans from clay.

    for example a man where to marry a femaile jinni, his sperm could not survive in her womb because it is inhospitable.

    thankyou brother’s/sister’s, this website has been very informative, about other aspects. i have learnt much

  6. Aisha says:

    Asalamuwailaikum brothers and sisters,
    there is this one verse in the Quran or Hadith (can’t remember which, id appreciate it someone wrote the exact quote) that says jinns are for jinns and humans are for humans. So that rules out human-jinn marriage. Contrary to the misconception that hooris are a different species, Hooris are actually Muslim women recreated. Again, human for human, not human-different species.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      Wa alaikum as salaam sister,

      • What you are referring to might be:
      • And We created you in pairs. (78:08)
      • Glory be to Him, Who has created all the pairs of that which the earth produces, as well as of their own (human) kind (male and female), and of that which they know not. (36:36)
      • And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you ride. (43:12)
      • And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember. (51:49)
      • And that He (Allah) creates the pairs, male and female. (53:45)

      I will use these verses to make a personal opinion in the above article. JazakAllah for the reference.

      • Bakhtawar says:

        Assalam-o-Allikum. i am going through a very hard time. Right now i am only 16 yrs old and in the final year of my O’levels. From 2 yrs back i started first feeling someone presence and then once i was walkin at the porch of my house when something gripped my hand preety tightly and the let go and that thing was invisible. i started seeing black and sometimes white figures roaming in my house at late night. Nobody in my family ever felt anything as such. Then i stopped talking to everyone at home and at school and the best part is i myself did not knew i was doing this. AT home i slept a lot as thought by everyone but when i got out of that weird mode. i realised i was put in a trance like i was pushed into sleep. sometimes i would be awake, would know what exactly is happening but no matter how hard i tried i wont be able to react to it…I went into that weird mode because i did not knew what was happening to me and i did not like the feeling at all, i was thinking about suicide and i searched on net about the actions and i realised after a year or so that i was being sexually abused.We changed home and settled at a new place but it’s still there i know.
        I get bad dreams, once during night i was sleeping with my mother i felt quite disturbed and i woke up finding some black thing jinn perhaps right next to me and it quickly became invisible but it was holding onto me so tightly and i started to fall into some trance when quickly tried to free myself and resisted it’s grip and i screamed for my mom but guess what i realised i was screaming but it did something because of which my mom could not hear me and then it hit me hard on the back and i started sobbing and it let go of me after which my mom instantly woke up .nearly same case happened a couple of days back.
        look all i am asking is some quranic ayat or verse to get it off my back, i fear about my virginity. which i am right, i mean i am only 16? . please please i am begging you really i cant tell all this minor detail to my parents, i dont like seeing my parents scared. plz look i am not crazy but i will become one if you wont help

I have had Rasoul Allah Mohamad (saws) visit me in a dream and teach me a new du3aa. But the jinns do not leave me alone. I am not scared of them, I just dont want to see them anymore, they are annoying I will not become bad. Why dont they understand that.

    Salaam i was wondering if the jinn is muslim why cant it live w us? Why do we have to make it leave?

    • sbahamam says:

      Wasalaam
      Brother, would you allow a muslim HUMAN to live in your house, let alone a Jinn.
      As far as I know, both the species have their places of dwelling and don’t want to be disturbed unnecessarily.
      You have your own privacy in your home, no one would tolerate anyone else, specially a NON-MAHRAM to live with him.
      I hope I made myself clear enough.
      Jazakallah

    • Hoda says:

      There is only one case of Muslim Jinns recorded and those are the jinn that heard Rasoul Allah (saws) recite Quran. The rest are bad, or not neutral, not good or bad.

  8. Zinat says:

    Salam

    as the brother said before, we can not marry a jinn because we are two different species. It will be a very difficult situation if we had relationship with them. Only Allah (SWT) knows best.

  9. W says:

    Don’t ever ever call a jinn.
    It will surely ask for something in return.
    And you might lose your religion to be able to afford that.
    If you refuse, then surely you will lose your religion without even knowing.
    Only an Angel will save you from such a situation, if you are lucky enough.

  10. For all women and young girl says:

    I was married by a jinn when I was 18 years old, today I’m 44 years. Because of a the jinn wife my life become HELL I never succeed anywhere and in anything. I was married by magic way that I don’t know, by people who lives in jealousy.

    So why you girls want to be a victim of?
    Do you know its consequence?
    Have you ever meet someone like me who had forced to sacrifice all my desires, wants, happiness on so on?
    Live your live as Allah and his Prophet(PBUH) asked you to do so, don’t try to burn your life forever. If you have free time read some more Quran better than thinking of nonsense.

    I’m doing treatment on treatment I’m not finding the end, that why I don’t want any Muslim girl or woman suffer as I suffered.

    Yes there are good and bad jinns who tell you the good jinn is for good indeed?

      i love a girl who is lover of jinn
      i mean some jinn love a girl but i did not know and i fell in love with that girl
      when i send marriage proposal to her father then she told me everything about her, she told me many times about this matter but i never take it seriously but now she keep saying it is not possible for her to marry me because they (jinn) will not allow her.

      i want to talk to you can you share with me some experience as you told me that you married a jinn

      can you tell me everything how you got married with a jinn and how the jinn touch you and how a jinn look, and how you talk to him, and what he want from you,

      i want to know because that girl don’t want to leave them she say she don’t want cure for this because they give her father benefit and they can kill her so she has to obey them.

      either she also want to marry jinn or she has to marry that jinn
      so i want to help her but she don’t want any help in this matter
      please
      can you share your life experience

      • friend says:

        dear friend,

        Quran is the powerful book in this universe you should help in Quran.

        Read surah-e-Jinn and you should resolved all problems……

        if you read Surah-e-jinn 3 times on water and water performs like a holy water she drinks and relief with jinn effect….Inshah Allah you may successful in this mission…..

  11. Muslimah says:

    Salam all sisters and brothers in Islam,

    It is quiet shocking to see some people are very interested in contact with jinn or marry them…..seriously? There are many important things we need to deal with rather wishing to see them or b part of them or marrying them.

    Are we that concern about our deen like we are concern about jinns? How about get connected with Allah (swt), how about finding ways to communicate with Allah (swt), how about practicing our deen, how about giving dawah, how about helping poor, how about memorizing Quran and how about research it the beautiful and miraculous book.

    They are so many things we need to think about and the first thing we all should think of for ourselves how to get into Jannah?

    Jinn are another creation of Allah (swt) and they also will be asked for their deeds on the day of judgement.

    I was also a victim but Allah (swt) helped me and im grateful to him. Most of the people who said can cure jinn possession are fake.

    1. Dont miss five daily prayers.
    2. Recite Quran every day, I mean EVERY SINGLE DAY.
    3. Stay away from foul acts.(the act which is forbidden, act which wont benefit you here and here after).
    4. Do dikir. ( shayateen cant come near to the person who always remember Allah (swt.
    5. Ofcourse all muslim brothers and sisters knows the power of Ayatul-kursi, and Surah Ikhlas, Surah Nas, Surah Falak, Surah Kafiroon. After every prayer and whenever you can and ofcourse before going to sleep.
    6. Try to study Quran and lives of our prophets and ofcourse our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw).
    7. Say Bismillah before doing anything.
    8. Say duas before going to the toilet and after coming out from the toilets.

    AND NO MATTER WHAT HAPPEN ALWAYS BE THANKFUL TO ALLAH (SWT). HE ONLY CAN CURE US AND HE ONLY CAN FORGIVE US. HE IS THE MOST MERCIFUL.

    May Allah (swt) helps us to keep our Emaan strong.

    Walaikumsalam Sisters and brothers in Islam

  12. mkhan says:

    If they have children, would they be partly be jin and human? meaning having inheriting partly the both characterestics of human and jin.

    • Muhammad Ali says:

      As salamu alaikum,

      No, those that claim to have descended from such a relationship are no different than normal human being. Its there in the article.

  13. sasha says:

    Ive read somewhere that queen of Sheba (malika bilqees) was half jinn, ie her father was a human and her mother was a jinn. is it right? and if it is then wats your take on this in the light of above article? why would a prophet marry her?

    • rahil says:

      Allah (swt) created three
      Angels
      Jinn
      Human

      and human are made by soil
      and jinn are made by smokeless fire

      so if someone say jinn and human can birth a new species which is half jinn and half human it means half soil half fire
      i dont think so it can be possible that anybody can mix god creation

      it result someone is saying
      there are another creation exist which is mixture of fire and soil
      there is no logic
      it means that species may be a superhero type creation , can fly, can be seen with human eyes, but can go anywhere in minutes.
      but there is no evidence of such creation

  14. Wara says:

    One of my frinds told me this. One of her classmates did studies on demonology. Now strange things happen in her place. The girl shuts her self in her bed room most of the time. And do not let anyone in to the room. Her parents hear voices there time to time even no one came from outside. The girl says she have a jin partner and even having sex with it so she needs no one. Is this posible.

  15. Wara says:

    We are planing to take the girl to a psychologist coz we thought its a mental issue. Else how can treet her please enlightn me.
    Jazakhallah

  16. zack says:

    Dear Brother and Sisters

    Jinns eventhough are Muslim they are generations of Iblis and have jelousy towards human Allah forbid to deal with them in the Quran and many time warn ageinst them i dont ustand how human marry them need to be posesses in their body very embarrasing to Islam

  17. zack says:

    How true is the story and sources
    even hadith can be fabricated dont deal with with demons even its so called muslims ive experience it very very evil and dangerous creature read the quran about Jinns Allah mention Jiins not their beliefs its universal

    Ive read somewhere that queen of Sheba (malika bilqees) was half jinn, ie her father was a human and her mother was a jinn. is it right? and if it is then wats your take on this in the light of above article? why would a prophet marry her?

  18. rahil says:

    assalamu alaikum
    there are lots of people keep saying that according to hadees human cannot marry jinn.
    actually two things is important
    what we can do
    and
    what we should do

    we should not marry jinn or jinn should not marry human
    but
    it is possible
    human can marry jinn or jinn can marry human

    so manytimes we people read quran and say we cannot do that thing because quran do not say about it to do.
    people can do that thing but they should not do.
    it means sometime we hear such cases that a girl love a jinn or a jinn have sex with a girl people say it is impossible,
    actually it is possible but it is not good for that human or jinn to do such things.

    and if you know what black magic is then you will know it is almost half sex and relationship with bad jinn and magician make them (jinn)happy and then jinn work for that magician.

    so its is very common in magicians to have relationship with jinn but it is uncommon in common people to hear realtionship between jinn and human

  19. rahil says:

    whatever information i am giving here is :-
    i never see any jinn not even in dream
    i heared many cases
    i felt manytimes that i was ill and people say that i was effected by black magic or by some jinn
    may be i was effected and people was right because i was cure by some religious method.

    but still i never saw any jinn even i was a victim of black magic or jinn.
    but i was sure it was not medical problem, i am a science student and i am sure i was effected not by medical problem.
    but i never say any jinn or angel type creation.

    i read many articles about this matter and i i want to know more about this matter.

    one of friend is effected by jinn and may be that jinn is ordering her to learn magic and to love him, i am looking for a solution
    i cant help her from that religious method which help me because her condition is more serious

  20. Ali Laban says:

    Here’s a better question, how the hell do you even marry a jinn?? You cant see them! How will you live together and cuddle and kiss, or even have intercourse?

    This idea of marrying jinn is absurd and way beyond haraam.

  21. Asad says:

    For about decade i am badly infected.. have been to dozen of amals, and done many many things.. the magic is strong enough never surrenders.. what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i am tired of every thing..

  22. nabilamajid says:

    The weird thing is you all have gone past the reason why marriage is important islam. marriage in islam is important because it is to increase muslims and increase islam. How? by having children who then children etc etc. So how is marrying a jinn be allowed in sialm when you cant have children.? if our prophets didnt do it and we are to follow them, we shold consider it forbbiden.

  23. ali says:

    any kind of contact with the supernatural is dangerous unless you can control things.

    don’t contact the supernatural when:

    you’re even a bit afraid
    don’t know how to control them
    don’t know what to expect
    don’t have a master helping you
    don’t have a strong will (it’s a key factor)

    contact them only when you have good motives and:

    a true man of god, would do it for you.
    a true master would do it for you.

  24. ali says:

    I should also mention that I’ve done what I suggested.

    with the exception that I had no master helping me… so I was all on my own…

    they were still afraid. cos of my strong will and god’s and 12 Imams’ protection.

  25. Staszek says:

    I do like the text and I also find the idea very intriguing ,its really interesting because as of now we have no other inteligent species that could interact with us in such matter also its more of a spiritual realm than a supernatural as of now the supernatural is really just fiction ,spiritual realm is the real thing

Am just 19years old now, am really facing alot of problem, I have promise to marry as a virgin, since then I have protected my self, even when I pass through difficult, I did all I could do to keep gud reputation, but still not enough. I turn up many people, because I never like them, and I have a reason. But people started saying I have a jinn that.is keeping me away from them, even my parent belief, pls dear muslims, I am fed up in my life

  29. Saad says:

    I once heard…… Zulqar Nayin’ , the famous king of the world, about whom it is mentioned in Islamic Reference, was married to a jinn…. is it true? And many djinns live in our society taking human shape….. and spending life like us, is it true? They’re even reported to be using internet and computers or studying at the same school as a human… working… or buying sweets from sweetshops at Midnights and arranging food parties at rooftops….. :/ Freaked out!!!!! 😮

  30. amin says:

    How the jinns come across into humans is that they take-over a human ie. get inside a human body and soul.

    In this world, humans are not able to see and feel the jinns so the human does not feel the heat in this life except when angry – the heat and fire will be felt in the grave and hell by the follower of Satan..

    It is haram/unlawful for the jinns to attack humans – but only the bad/evils ones do this, they are the brothers of Satan looking to create their followers.

    please update your article with this information.

  31. Ayub says:

    It’s possible that jinn can intercourse with human beings, if you do not take Allah’s name before intercourse with your spouse then will also join you.

    Most of the young girls are effected with this either they are not aware what’s happening to them or they shy to tell to their parents.

    This are the common sign if jinn intercourse with you.
    1-pain in abdomen when you wake up.
    2-feel heavyness on chest while sleeping
    3-want to stay alone or like loneliness
    And many more

    Regards
    Ayub
