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.

What kind of foods jinn eat (my earlier question)

Referring to my earlier question some 6 months ago on what kind of foods jinn eat, my next question about the same creation of Allah is that can these jinns attack, harm or kill humans?   Or can they cause such harm by entering the human body?

Walaykum As-Salam, Ramadan Mubarak wa' Kareem to you as well. 

There is no evidence in the Noble Quran confirming nor even referring indirectly that jinn can attack us or kill us physically the way humans attack and kill one another.  Neither does the Noble Quran state nor refer that jinn can enter the human body nor can possess humans.  What is commonly misinterpreted as such is the ability of the jinn to tempt and misguide humans through their whispers, unseen by human eyes.   

“And he whose sight is dim to the remembrance of the Beneficent, We assign unto him a devil who becomes his comrade;”  43:36 Az-Zukhruf.

As Allah Almighty has clearly explained in V.43:36 that the ones whom the evil ones befriend are those with weak iman or no iman who seldom or never remember Allah.  A “devil” referred  here would include Satan or an evil jin who follows Satan .. and also a very misguided human being.

For instance, an evil jin will not come up to you and slap you, but it can try to whisper misguidance or wrong ideas in your mind so you end up slapping or hurting yourself, or getting slapped or hurt by another human because of your behavior.  This does not mean that the evil jin is within you, nor does it mean it has “possessed” you.  It simply means that the signals of temptations the jin is sending to you has confounded you and you have been swayed by it, just the way a person might have second thoughts if they are in the bad company of other humans who are trying to lure them to commit transgressions.  It might also result in mental health issues in some people.  In all such situations, whether tempted or lured by Satan or an evil jin or an evil human, the best method to correct the emotional disturbance caused is to recite the Noble Quran, understand it and utilize Quranic principles and values to be reflective, to get a hold on yourself and thus thwart the suggestions of the transgressors.  As an additional step, one can also seek help from mental health professionals for advice.  For a Muslim, it’s essential that the mental health professional or psychologist they consult should also be a Muslim so that the treatment can be in accordance with Quranic principles.

Recitation of the Noble Quran along with a strong faith in The Almighty greatly helps to keep the whispers of the jinn away, that is, if they know that you are firmly planted in faith, they will not try to misguide you because they know it is futile and a waste of their time.

“O Children of Adam! Let not Satan tempt you as he caused your (first) parents to go forth from the Garden and tore off from them their robe (of innocence) that he might manifest their shame to them. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from whence you see him not. Indeed, We have made the devils protecting friends for those who believe not.”  7:27 Al-Araf. 

The above Verse clarifies the matter still more.  After all, how did Satan (who is of the category of jin) tempt Adam and his wife in Jannah?  Satan was never in Jannah, he can never enter Jannah no matter how much he tries.  But he tempted them invisibly from a distance through his whispers .. or call it telepathy in the language of psychology ..  and unfortunately they became victims of his temptation .. though later they did regret and Allah Almighty forgave them.

While there is no indication of jinn possessing us nor physically attacking or hurting us, they can cause plenty of hurt through their invisible temptations resulting in human misguidance, and then humans themselves ending up doing things to physically hurt themselves in various ways including making themselves targets of attacks by other humans, jeopardizing their lives one way or another.

And only Allah knows best.

Some people say that when jinns get angry with humans they can take revenge.   How far does this hold truth?

I really don't know what this tale is about except that I'm quite sure it's just a tale and holds no truth.  It sounds like one of those hadith influencers.


Some people say that when jinns get angry with humans they can take revenge.   How far does this hold truth?

To the best of my knowledge, the anger and revenge of jinn does not lead to physical attacks on humans.  That concept is not in the Noble Quran.  However, as experienced by many people, the anger / revenge of jinn may come around as making indirect trouble or mischief for humans.  E.g. If jinn reside in your house and they don’t want you there, they can make life unpleasant making you feel depressed, restless, pessimistic, nothing seems to be going right for you in that house etc.   Also, sometimes if a jin resides in your home, it can be a harmless one that may have no objections to your presence and you don’t experience anything negative.
 
Remembrance of Allah Almighty – offering salah and reciting the Noble Quran – is very necessary to keep Satan and the evil jinn away.  The Great Power of the Quranic Words hits them hard and they really fear that.  For the same reason Quran recitation also greatly helps to curb the ill wishes of evil humans.  In case anyone feels they are being troubled by a bad jin via temptations or mischief, the only thing that can help is remembrance of Allah Almighty.

To conclude and summarize:  Jinn are in constant competition with human beings as they share with them many characteristics and attributes. Jinn are present in every part of the world.  They can think, eat, love, hate, be angry or happy in addition to having free will.  Jinn like humans can be good or bad and can be believers or disbelievers in Allah.  In comparison to humans, jinn are more powerful as they can move fast and travel huge distances in a very short time, shape and reshape in different forms, and the most dangerous attribute is they can tempt humans unseen from a distance (as already explained very articulately by Sister Ruhi).  Links to all these points can be found at the end of MV post Jinn in the Noble Quran.
