I have also witnessed aa Sheikh who would send a jinn to be in someone's body so that when that person speaks, to anyone, those people listens and do as what the possessed person wants without questioning.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

As salaam alaykum brother, thanks for this but i really am left in wonder, i believe what the quran says, but i dont know what to think about things that i have come accross to witness. like those people who are believed to be possessed by Jinns, would give  you information about things that will happen in the near future and it happens to be true.

 

I have also witnessed aa Sheikh who would send a jinn to be in someone's body so that when that person speaks, to anyone, those people listens and do as what the possessed person wants without questioning, even if they didnt plan to agree to such a thing prior,

 

As well, i have seen sheikhs who would read some quranic verses to get rid of jinns from possessed people who have been sick for so long and then the person will just stop being ill,

 

Infact one Sheikh from Mombassa also told me that the jinns are there but you need a special knowledge to see and command them, and as human beings are created as Khalifa - Rulers aof the Universe, then we can even use the jinns to do various activities good and bad, e.g building wonderful palaces e.g Taj Mahal of India, etc

 

its an experience that really confuses us. Please clarify more, I am on Quran and Sunah but i would like to have a clear and thorough understanding so that i can replicate this knowledge to my fellows in clear conscious.

Answer:

 

Jinns can tell future

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Statement: As salaam alaykum brother, thanks for this but i really am left in wonder, i believe what the quran says, but i dont know what to think about things that i have come accross to witness.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 36:

It does not behove a believing man and a believing woman that when Allah and His Messenger have given their decision in a matter, they should exercise an option in that matter of theirs. For whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, has indeed strayed into manifest error.

 

Beloved Sister, it is possible that one may witness an incident with ones own eyes and derive a particular conclusionbut that conclusion or determination may not be the Absolute Truth! For example, one may see and witness with their very own eyes a so-called magician or an illusionist seemingly do the impossible or even make a whole building like the Taj Mahal disappear.but that is merely an illusion and not he truth!

 

Thus absolutely regardless of whatever one might have experienced or witnessed, if ones conclusion happens to conflict with the guidance declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws)..then it would only be an extension of ones faith that one stand firm and steadfast on the Opinion and Declaration of what is declared in the Quran and the Sunnah, even if it may mean that one might have to compromise ones own opinion and conclusion! For Allah is our witness sister, whatever is declared by Allah Subhanah and His Messenger (saws) is the Total and Absolute Truth; and in that Truth have the believers put their trust and their belief.

 

Your Statement: .like those people who are believed to be possessed by Jinns,

The Jinns are a distinct creation of Allah who have their own test of life ordained for them by Allah Subhanah, and they too will have a full accounting of their deeds on the Day of Judgment like the humans.

 

Allah is our witness sister, the one and only reason a believer believes in the existence of the Jinn is because the Lord Creator has Declared the existence of Jinns in His Glorious Qruan.Allah is our witness sister, if Allah and His Messenger (saws) had not made it known to mankind regarding the creation and the existence of the Jinns, there would have been absolutely no reason for a believer to believe in their existence.just as there is absolutely no reason to believe in what is popularly known in different pagan cultures and nations as ghosts, witches, goblins, etc.!

 

The system or nature of this life created by the Lord Most High is that every person is responsible for the deeds he does with his own will. If the jinns had the power or could possess someone, then whatever that person does or says, he does not do or say with his own will but rather it would be the will of the Jinn! If a jinn could posses a human being, he could murder someone, rape someone, steal something, etc. and make the human being he has possessed do many an evil deed.and the innocent person could be held guilty in a court of law and punished for something he did not will to do!!!! The whole system of life and the test that the All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord has bestowed would be in total disarrayand no ones life or property would be safe on this earth!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 114 Surah An-Naas verses 4-6:

4 (Say: I seek refuge in Allah ) from the mischief of the whisperer (of evil) who withdraws (after his whisper)

5 (The same) who whispers into the hearts of mankind

6 Among Jinns, and among men.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 14 Surah Ibraheem verse 22:

22 And the Shaytaan (on the Day of Judgment) will say when the matter is decided: "It was Allah Who gave you a promise of Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you. I had no authority over you except to call you, but ye listened to me: then reproach not me but reproach your own souls. I cannot listen to your cries nor can ye listen to mine. I reject your former act in associating me with Allah. For wrongdoers there must be a Grievous Penalty."


 

In light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Quran, the absolute maximum the Jinn has the power to do is to whisper some evil into the hearts of men, and inspire man to commit some evil! They have absolutely no power to help or hurt any human being, and they absolutely do not possess the power to possess a human being.

 

Thus not only is the guidance of the Holy Quran against the very concept of a jinn possessing a human being, but even logically it is absolutely impossible for a jinn to possess a human being and make him do his will!

 

If there is one amongst the human beings who claims or believes that Jinns can possess; but their claim and belief is against not only the faculties of intelligence and wisdom of man, but against the clear guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah! It is upto you to decide which one of the two claims deserve your belief.

 

Your Statement: would give  you information about things that will happen in the near future and it happens to be true.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqman verse 34:

34 Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone). It is He (Alone) Who sends down rain and He (Alone) Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things)

 

Dear and Beloved Sister in Islam, amongst the Absolutely Exclusive Attributes of Allah Subhanah is that He Alone is The All-Knowing, The All-Seeing and The All-Hearing; and He Alone has perfect Knowledge of everything that happened in the past and will happen in the future. No one, and we reiterate, absolutely no one in creation has the Knowledge of the future or the unseen!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 59-60:

59 With Him (Allah) are the keys of the Unseen, the treasures that none Knows but He. He Knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear.

60 It is He (Allah) Who doth take your souls by night and hath Knowledge of all that ye have done by day. By day doth He raise you up again; that a term appointed be fulfilled; in the end unto Him will be your return, then will He show you the truth of all that ye did.

 

Not even the Noble Prophets of Allah ever claimed that they had the knowledge of the future or the unseen, except that which Allah Subhanah pleased to reveal to them by wahi or inspiration.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 187-188:

187 They ask thee (O Prophet) about the (final) Hour, when will be its appointed time? Say: "The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (Alone): none but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only all of a sudden will it come to you. They ask thee as if thou wert eager in search thereof: Say: "The knowledge thereof is with Allah (Alone) but most men know not."

188 Say (Prophet (saws)): "I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the unseen I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me; I am but a warner and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith."

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 48-51:

48 We send the Messengers only to give good news and to warn: so those who believe and mend (their lives), upon them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.

49 But those who reject Our Signs, them shall our punishment touch for that they ceased not from transgressing.

50 Say (O Prophet (saws)): "I tell you not that with me are the treasures of Allah, nor do I know what is hidden, nor do I tell you I am an Angel. I but follow what is revealed to me." Say: "Can the blind be held equal to the seeing?" Will ye then consider not?

51 Give the warning to those in whose (hearts) is the fear that they will be brought (to judgment) before their Lord: except from Him they will have no protector nor intercessor: that they may guard (against evil).

 

If anyone feels or believes that anyone other than Allah Subhanah has knowledge of the future or the unseen, they would be guilty of sharing one of Allahs Absolutely Exclusive Attributes with one amongst His creation; and that would be a clear and manifest form of the heinous and unforgivable crime of shirk!

 

Allah says in the Quran: Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa Verse 48

Shirk is the only sin that Allah does not forgive, and He forgives, whomsoever He pleases, sins other than this. For whosoever associates any other partner with Allah, does indeed forge a big lie and commits the most heinous sin

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:

Whoever commits shirk. Allah shall forbid for him Paradise, and Hell shall be his abode. And for such wrong doers there will be no one to help.

 

Your Statement: would give  you information about things that will happen in the near future and it happens to be true.

Beloved Sister, if I declare today that such and such a person will experience a fall tomorrow or have an accident tomorrow..and indeed perchance the person falls or has an accident does not mean that I know the futureand if Allah forbid, I were to declare that I have knowledge of the future just because one of my blind predictions and absolute guess-works came true.there would not be a bigger liar than me on this planet earth!

 

To believe one whose absolute blind guess of a future prediction happened to come true possess the knowledge of the future or the unseen would be a folly beyond compare!

 

Your Statements: I have also witnessed aa Sheikh who would send a jinn to be in someone's body so that when that person speaks, to anyone, those people listens and do as what the possessed person wants without questioning, even if they didnt plan to agree to such a thing prior,

 

As well, i have seen sheikhs who would read some quranic verses to get rid of jinns from possessed people who have been sick for so long and then the person will just stop being ill,

These supposed sheikhs who claim to control the jinns are nothing but absolute and total conmen who thrive, play, and make a substantial living on the absolute ignorance of their followers!

 

If these supposed sheikhs could get the jinns to cure peoples illness, there would be no need of hospitals in the worldnor would any amongst mankind suffer any illness!

 

Your Statement: Infact one Sheikh from Mombassa also told me that the jinns are there but you need a special knowledge to see and command them, and as human beings are created as Khalifa - Rulers aof the Universe, then we can even use the jinns to do various activities good and bad, e.g building wonderful palaces e.g Taj Mahal of India, etc

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraf verse 27:

27 O ye children of Adam! Let not the Shaytaan seduce you in the same manner as he got your parents (Adam and Hawwa) out of the Garden stripping them of their raiment to expose their shame: for he and his tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the shayateen friends (only) to those without faith.

 

The literal meaning of the very term Jinn in the Arabic language means one who cannot be seen! Allah Subhanah has Himself declared in His Glorious Quran in the above quoted Verse that the Jinns cannot be seen..and the supposed sheikh from Mombassa has the gall to declare that Jinns can be seen!

 

Who do you think has a bigger right to be believedAllah Subhanah The Lord of the Worlds, or this supposed sheikh from Mombassa!!!!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 4:

4 But Allah tells (you) the Truth and He shows the (Right) Way.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 87:

87 And whose Word can be truer than Allah's?

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa verse 122:

The promise of Allah is true, and who can be truer in his Word than Allah?

 

My beloved sister in Islam, even if all amongst mankind were to stand together and claim that the Jinn can be seen, or a Jinn can posses a human being and make him say and do his will; and they were all to claim they themselves have witnessed this supposed phenomena of the unseen .... and The Lord Most High Declares in His Quran that the Jinn cannot be seen by humans, nor can they possess and make humans do their will.then if you have to, stand alone on the side of Words and Guidance of Truth of Allah Subhanah; for none can be truer in His Word than Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumar verse 41:

41 Verily We have revealed the Book (Al-Quran) to thee in Truth for (instructing) mankind. He then that receives guidance benefits his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. Nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 32-33:

32 Such is Allah your real Cherisher and Sustainer: apart from Truth what (remains) but error? How then are ye turned away?

33 Thus is the Word of thy Lord proved true against those who rebel: verily they will not believe.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
