What foods do jinn eat and how do they get their foods?

August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein? Also explore its related links.

July 07, 2022, 04:02:47 pm Zainab_M: Eid-al-Adha expected on 10th Dhul Hijja 1443 (July 9th 2022, Saturday) Insh'Allah,.
June 30, 2022, 05:37:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Salaam all.  Today is 1st Dhul Hijja 1443 (corresponding to June 30, 2022).  Day of Arafah will be on 9th Dhul Hijja (July 8th) and Eid-al-Adha on 10th Dhul Hijja (July 9th). Fasting on the Day of Arafah is not obligatory, however it's a good day to observe a nafl fast for those healthy enough to do so.  Insh'Allah.

Salam and peace.   Stories about bones, dung, crap and charcoal are entirely from hadith.  I would advise you to completely ignore them.  There are many more myths released by hadith, some are totally senseless and some resemble the tales of evil spirits in fictions.  You need to overlook all these nonsensical stuff altogether otherwise your confusion will deepen by the day.

To learn authentically about the jinn, focus only on the Quran.  You will get a lot of help if you read our post Jinn in the Noble Quran and all its links at the end of this post.

Getting food for the jinn isnít a difficult task for them. They can eat wild fruits, fish from the rivers or streams, they can catch, cook and eat birds, they can make themselves visible looking like humans, get a job (temporary if not permanent), work, earn some money and then buy food like humans do. And if jinn need water like humans, they can get it from a lot of places.  These are all possibilities but only Allah knows the precise facts in this regard.  What we know for sure as conveyed to us in the Noble Quraan is that Allah Almighty has made provisions for all His creation.  It is a matter of rizq (provision) as called in Arabic or arzaq (plural, provisions).  After all, wild animals and birds have their own ways of getting food and water for themselves, donít they?   Sea or water creatures have their own sources of sustenance.  We humans have our own ways, and similarly the jinn have their own.   For all, their provisions are provided by The Almighty.

ďAnd there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage.  All is in a clear register.Ē 11:6 Surah Hud. 

Also Allah says in Surah Al-Imraan, ďAllah Provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure." 3:37.

Allah Almighty has made it ample clear in the Noble Quran that He provides sustenance or provision (rizq) to everyone and whoever He pleases. 

This also includes provision in the Hereafter.  ďThose who believe and do good works, for them is pardon and a rich provision;Ē  22:50 Al-Hajj.   This Verse refers to provision in the Hereafter for the righteous.   The same point is also stated in V.34:4 Surah Saba and V.3:169 of Surah Al-Imraan where Allah Almighty mentions the provision (rizq) for martyrs in Paradise, quote ďAnd never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Rab, receiving provision,Ē  3:169 Al-Imraan.   

Similarly one can be certain that Allah Almighty also provides sustenance for the jinn, as He has already confirmed in His Final Message that He provides for every living creature He pleases.   Itís better to leave it at that, not go beyond the boundaries into issues not mentioned nor confirmed by Allah.  Searching for Truth through non-Quranic contents is not only a waste of time but also very confusing because as Iíve already stated dozens of non-Quranic sources have put forth their own puff pieces which are nothing beyond contradictory and confusing tales that can do a lot more harm than good to a knowledge seeker.  The Truth is only in the Quran, and whatever details Allah has not stated in the Quran is because those specifics are not necessary for us to know from the viewpoint of acquiring guidance.  But Allah knows everything and He takes care of everyone.
