Jinn misguide humans, but who misguides the jinn?

April 02, 2024, 07:27:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Details on Leila tul Qadr every Ramadan, links HERE.
November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

Salaams dear all. 

While humans cannot see Satan (who is of the jinn), the latter can see the former and that is how he misguides them. 

“He said: Now, because You have sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Your Right Path.  Then I shall come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right hands and from their left hands, and You will not find most of them beholden (unto You).”  V.7:16-17 Al-Araf.

Apparently, the community of evil jinn can misguide humans similarly. 

The question is, how do these jinn themselves get misguided?  Obviously not through humans as they are not often visible to humans.

Well, jinn have their own source and reasons for misguidance, the same source and reasons that influence humans.  In other words, there are also several other causes for misguidance within humans excluding the jinn, and those causes can also similarly misguide the jinn.  After all, the Noble Quran confirms that like humans, jinn too can be righteous or unrighteous.

“And among us there are righteous folk and among us there are far from that. We are sects having different rules.”  72:11.

First of all, Satan is the prime source of misguidance in both humans and the jinn. Ref. Vs.7:16-17 and V.17:62.   But additionally, the soul with all its desires can itself be the origin of misguidance and corruption, falling prey to Satan’s desires without requiring Satan to make much effort.  Thus the Noble Quran, while quoting Prophet Yusuf (pbuh) in Surah 12 states “And I do not acquit myself.  Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoiner of evil.” 12:53.   This can also be explained as getting deceived by worldly wealth and pleasures with increasing avarice and diminishing contentment. 

“O you assembly of the jinn and humankind! Came there not unto you messengers of your own who recounted unto you My tokens and warned you of the meeting of this your Day? They will say: We testify against ourselves. And the life of the world beguiled them.”  6:130 Al-Anam.

Another cause for misguidance among the jinn (as among humans) is bad company and negative influence of other jinn. 

A final point:  Quoting V.6:128.

“And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when He will gather them together [and say], "O company of jinn, you have [misled] many of mankind." And their allies among mankind will say, "Our Rab, some of us made use of others, and we have [now] reached our term, which you appointed for us." “  6:128 Al-Anam.

From the manner in which The Almighty has stated the above Verse 6:128, it does appear that there is some kind of interaction between jinn and humans in regard to transgressions and thus eventually on the Day of Judgement they will acknowledge the truth.  This allusion to jinn-human reciprocity reflects that the jinn do see humans, but humans only feel the brainwaves and often even recognize the corruption and illegitimacy of their thoughts and deeds.  Some humans may also discern they are being tempted and led astray uncontrollably yet they are too weak to stand up and confront the invisible evil influencer.  On the contrary they take pleasure in falling for the temptations.  Very similar to the temptations by Satan.

Very interesting piece, thanks dear Sister.  And that last paragraph on V.6:128  you clarified so well, brief and to the point.  Many people ask this question about human-jinn interaction.  That paragraph would answer their query completely, Insh'Allah.
