Can jinns marry humans
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.
Q-1: Can jinns marry with human?
There is absolutely nothing in the Glorious Quran and the authentic and established Sunnah which evenly remotely promotes the notion that it is possible for jinns to marry humans.
Q-2: Can Jinns take the appearance of human and marry humans, without them knowing?
Allah has created humans superior to Jinns in status; and just as humans do not have the power to transform themselves to a creation of their choice, the Jinns too have not been given the power to transform themselves at will to a creation of their liking! The Jinns too have been given their forms, duties and responsibilities by the Creator, and they will have a full accounting of their deeds on an Inevitable Day in the Presence of the All Mighty Lord.
To believe that Jinns can disguise themselves at will to any animal or human form is an absolutely incorrect and baseless belief.
Q-3: What is the relation between shaitan and the jinns?
Jinn: the literal meaning of the Arabic term jinn is something which is hidden or cannot be seen, thus it is not possible for a human being to see a jinn and their exact physical properties are kept unknown to man and known only by the Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah.
The Jinn race, like the human race created after them, is a creation of Allah; whom like the humans, Allah Subhanah created and bestowed upon them limited intelligence and a limited free will and involved them in a test for a period of one short and transitory life; and like the human race, they too will be gathered in the Presence of the Majestic Lord on an Inevitable Day of Judgment to give a full accounting of their deeds.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 55 Surah Rahmaan verses 14-15:
14 He created man from sounding clay like unto pottery.
15 And He created Jinns from fire free of smoke.
The Jinns are a complete different and distinct creation of the Lord whom He created from a smokeless flame of fire before He created man; they have their own lives, their own laws, families, emotions of joy, happiness, love, anger, and grief; and they too like the human beings can choose obedience or disobedience of their Lord as they will, for a period of one life time.
Shaytaan or (plural Shayateen): The literal meaning of the Arabic term Shaytaan is one who transgresses the boundaries of Allah, or is a consistent disobedient or denier of the Truth.
A Shaytaan can be one from amongst the human beings or from amongst the Jinns, for these two races alone have been bestowed a free will to choose between obedience and disobedience of their Lord amongst all His creation. All those amongst the Jinns and the human beings who follow the mission of disobedience of Iblees are all termed Shaytaans by Allah Subhanah.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 112:
And so have We (Allah) always set against every Prophet enemies from among Shaitaans of men and Shaitaans of jinns, who inspire one another with flowery discourses by way of deception.
Whenever Allah Subhanah refers to As-Shaytaan (The Shaytaan) in the Glorious Quran, it refers to the accursed leader of the Shayateen amongst the Jinns ie. Iblees; and whenever the general term shaytaan or plural shayateen is used, it refers to all those amongst the men and the jinn who follow the mission of disobedience of the accursed Iblees.
Thus in simple layman terms the Jinn like the human race are a creation of Allah Subhanah whom He has bestowed with a free will for a limited period of one life time as a test to choose between obedience and disobedience of their Lord.
The Iblees is one amongst the Jinn who chose to disobey and challenge the Lord; and all amongst the Jinns and the human race who choose to follow the mission of disobedience of the Lord are all termed and known as the shayateen.
Unlike the Jinns and the Humans, the Shaytaan is not a specific creation of Allah Subhanah! Just as Allah Subhanah does not specifically create murderers, or thieves, or gangsters, or alcoholics, or people who commit adultery, etc.the Shaytaan too is not specifically made or created by Allah Subhanah as a distinct creation. Any amongst the humans or jinns who consistently transgress the Prescribed Boundaries of Allah Subhanah, or any amongst the men and Jinns who follow the evil mission of the accursed Jinn Iblees are termed as Shayateen.
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.
