Sects among Jinn

Brother Shubi asked a very good question. He wanted to know about the reality of sects among jinn, how some of them are Christian as the exorcists speak.

The famous scholar of hadith, al-Amaash said, “A jinn appeared among us. I said to him, ‘What is your favorite food?’ He said, ‘Rice.’ We brought some to him and I would see the spoon go up and down but could not see anyone. I said, ‘Do you also have people of desires [and innovations] among you like what we have?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘What is the situation of the Rafidha [extreme Shia] among you.’ He said, ‘They are the worst of us.’”

Ibn-Kathir wrote, after recording the above story, “I presented its chain to our teacher Abu al-Hajjaj al-Mizi. He said, ‘The chain is authentic back to al-Amaash.’ Then he said, ‘Ibn Asaakeer recorded in the biography of al-Abbas ibn Ahmad al-Dimishqi that he said, ‘I heard some of the jinn recite, ‘The hearts are in pain until they connect with their beloved and are with Him in any place, in the West or East; They are filled with the love of Allah, and Allah is their lord, they are connected to Allah and not to anything of his creation.”’

Coming to the next point of how some of them believe in Messengers and the word of Allah. Allah says in the Quran,

“O! you assembly of jinn and mankind! “Did there not come on to you Messengers from amongst you, reciting unto you My Verses and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?” They will say: We bear witness against ourselves.” It was the life of this world that deceived them. And they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.” [al-Anam: 130]

However, there are different opinions about “messengers from among you” Although Most scholars say that Messengers came for Both jinn and Mankind, Since Satan/Iblees is from the realm of the jinn. Yet Some scholars say they have messengers from their own kind. But then again,

‘And [mention, O Muhammad], when We directed to you a few of the jinn, listening to the Quran. And when they attended it, they said, “Listen quietly.” And when it was concluded, they went back to their people as warners.’

‘They (jinn) said: “O our people! Verily! We have heard a Book (this Quran) sent down after Musa (Moses), confirming what came before it, it guides to the truth and to a Straight Path (i.e. Islam).’ [al-Ahqaf: 29-30]

It somehow reflects that the same Messengers truly were sent for both Mankind and the Jinn.

If you read the translation of Surah al-Jinn, it says:

Say (O Muhammad SAW): “It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinn listened (to this Quran). They said: ‘Verily! We have heard a wonderful Recital (this Quran)!

‘It guides to the Right Path, and we have believed therein, and we shall never join (in worship) anything with our Lord (Allah).

‘And exalted be the Majesty of our Lord, He has taken neither a wife, nor a son (or offspring or children).

‘And that the foolish among us [i.e. Iblees (Satan) or the polytheists amongst the jinn] used to utter against Allah that which was wrong and not right. *

‘And verily, we thought that men and jinn would not utter a lie against Allah.

‘And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinn, but they (jinn) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief. (It may refer to magicians and demon worshipers)

‘And they thought as you thought, that Allah will not send any Messenger (to mankind or jinn).
[al-Jinn: 1-7]

I hope that the * marked verse of Surah al-jinn clarifies your doubts about, how there are Christians among the jinn.

I would like to quote Surah ar-Rahmaan. Which is another of the Surahs, which by Most Scholars opinion has come down for Both mankind and the jinn. A video with Translation bellow.

About why Christian jinn want one to be dirty for 40 days, it is much generalized. Christian jinn are followers of Satan, all demons would tell a person to remain dirty, but since they are followers of Satan, they rather wish to weaken a person both spiritually and externally.  It is one of the agreement between the Witch and the jinn, to keep the subject away from water simply to please Satan, so that the so called christian jinn (in fact a follower of satan) can then claim a reward for what he did. In fact, all magicians keep away from water for a very long time and the more dirty they become, the more the demons fall in love with them. And they call themselves Christians for unknown reason, just like most of the Mankind call themselves Muslims/Christians Only because they are born in that family, not because they follow the teachings. Yet it is known that the jinn who possesses a person who keeps away from water mostly claims that he is a christian jinn.

Brother, matter of fact is, Iblees is a jinn too, and he worshiped Allah more than any human can ever imagine. What Amaash referred to “Do you also have people of desires [and innovations] among you like what we have?” here, the same innovation can be referred to as the Free-Will; which Jinn and Mankind both have in common.Iblees had a free-will, and because of his self innovation, he thought big of himself.

Please notice – Being a jinn DOES NOT mean that he knows about the inevitable reality. You may refer to the story of Sulayman (as) in the Quran,

“Then when We decreed death for him [Sulayman (Solomon)], nothing informed them (jinns) of his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his stick, so when he fell down, the jinns saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have stayed in the humiliating torment.” (Saba: 14)

Hence Jinn, if can see us when we cannot see them, does not mean that they know about reality.

None but Only Allah knows Best.
