Expelling jinn from your home
EXPELLING JINN FROM YOUR HOME
The world of Jinn in the Qur’an and Sunnah
Belief in the Existence of Jinn:
Ahl As-Sunnah wal Jama’a believe that jinn exist,because Allah he has revealed a whole Surah in the Qur’an about them; indeed, the term “jinn’ and its derivatives have appeared in the Qur’an approximately fifty times”.
The Prophet has further confirmed the existence of jinn in many authentic Ahadeeth and stated that they embraced Islam.
In light of this, whoever disputes the existence of the jinn would, in actual fact, be denying one of the principles of faith (i.e. the unseen), and would therefore be outside the fold of Islam.
Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, said: “All Muslim groups have agreed that jinn exist and that Allah had sent Prophet Muhammad to them as well. All the other groups of disbelievers also agree that they exist.
As for the people of the Books, Jews and Christians, they have the same belief as Muslims; they believe in their existence, except for a few small groups who deny it, similar to some Muslim sects, such as Jahmiyyah and Mu’tazilah.
The existence of jinn has been authentically confirmed by all Prophets and Messengers; all Muslims, polytheist Arabs, and disbelievers among the people of the Books have agreed that jinn exist.”6
Modern Science and confirmation of Jinn:
In his book, “The World of Jinn and Angels”, Dr. Abdur Razzaq Nawfal, may Allah have mercy on him, said:
“There are some worlds which are unknown to man; they are not from the worlds that he could explore and reach by any means known to him, because he is unaccustomed to them, and among these are the worlds of jinn and Angels.
Despite the level of sophistication of modern science, it fails to shed further light on such matters; whereas the Noble Qur’an, which was revealed over 1400 years ago, actually provides us with descriptions of these unseen worlds.”!
The true explanation of the unseen comes from Islam. Like every other religion, Islam also claims to explain this realm of the unseen. In fact, the Islamic explanation of the jinn provides explanations for many of the supernatural incidents that take place in our modern age;
indeed, without access to this knowledge, the Muslim would be unable to deal effectively with any problems that may be caused by jinn, nor would he be able to protect himself from their mischief.
There follows below some descriptions of the jinn (taken from the Qur’an and Sunnah), as well as information on their dwellings, food, etc.
The Creation of Jinn and their Physical Origin: Jinn are created from fire.
والجان خلقته من قبل من نار السموم (

وخلق الجان من مارج من نار
(and the Jinn he created from a smokeless flame of fire), and Ibliss said in the Qur’an,
