In the bible they are demons or entities of fire as the quran also mentioned that the jinn created from special fire
One particular phrase in the Psalms makes me think of the djinn, The winds are your messengers; flames of fire are your servants. Psalm 104:4
The winds become the angels we see elsewhere.
The flames of fire are the djinn, the Divine’s servants.
Then the pillar of fire in the desert is an efrit, a djinn whirlwind.
The pillar of cloud is an angel as it is made of wind.
So we have the Flames of Fire (Djinn and Demons), the Winds (the Angels), the Nephilim (Giants) of Earth, and the Sea Monsters (the Leviathan) as Water.
All of them are creatures with intelligence, who are not human, who are connected to the Divine and created with will just as much as humans.
Some people work with them, some don’t, as the “elemental spirits of the universe” mentioned in the New Testament.
1 Corinthians, 10:20
“But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”
Here, devils or demons mentioned in the bible have originated from the term jihn (evil jinn) or satan.
Demons or devils in the bible are not referring to Lucifer or that of fallen angels.
SOME OF THE JINNS SUCH AS
Large and imposing, the marid are considered the most powerful tribe of jinn. They are the classic genies of folklore, often portrayed as barrel chested men with booming voices.
Originally sea-spirits, they are often associated with water, and thought to take sanctuary in the open ocean. While marid are very powerful, they are not technically minded and therefore unlikely to infect your hard drive. However, there is at least one known case of a marid being imprisoned in a flash drive and doing quite a lot of damage to the operating system, attempting to free itself. Please be aware when opening any unfamiliar attachments and if any of your computer’s peripherals exhibit a telltale blue-gray cast, please disconnect from your machine and take them to a qualified technician.
Intelligent and cunning, the efreet are thought to live in complex societies similar to those of humans. They are said to prefer caves and under ground dwellings. Though ostensibly demonic, they are portrayed as changeable in nature, and capable of becoming pious and good. In the Quran, King Solomon is said to have had power over a tribe of effrit, who performed various tasks for him.
Effrit are the greatest risk for phishing scams and online privacy violations, as they are natural schemers and also understand human personality and social interaction the best. It is thought that quite a few effrit amuse themselves sending Facebook messages to attractive potential mates using the profiles of call center employees and programmers in India, the Middle East, and the Philippines, who are bewildered by the response. More seriously, however, some effrit have the capability of writing code themselves, and it is thought that the Conficker worm, which infected some fifty million computers worldwide, may have been written by a group combining effrit and human members. Effrit are not to be taken lightly, but they can only be guarded against by the standard information safety protocols used with human threats—be wary of unverified interlocutors and executable content, and if your system slows or behaves oddly, conduct a thorough scan or contact your IT professional.
GHOUL or the Rake
(Arabic pronunciation uses a guttural gg sound somewhere
between an English G and a French R)
This tribe of jinn has traveled north and west to become a common English- language term for “undead monster.” This is pretty close to its original Arabic connotation; ghouls are thought to be zombie-like jinn who haunt graveyards and prey on human flesh. They are strictly demonic and incapable of goodness. Often portrayed as nocturnal. Given their limited intelligence, ghouls are low risk in the information technology world—but you really don’t want to run into one in a dark alley.
SILA, silwa ,selowa, skinwalker, shapeshifter demon
Talented shape-shifters who are more tolerant of human society than other tribes of jinn, sila are most often portrayed as female. Thought to be extremely intelligent, sila are nonetheless the most rarely seen of all the types of jinn, and appear only sporadically in folklore. There is speculation that the term sila might be related to seelie, a Middle English word for “a good faerie.” (This would make sense, as sila does not appear to correspond to an Arabic root pattern.) Sila are extremely rare, both on- and off-line, and while they are intelligent and comfortable crossing back and forth between realms seen and unseen/human and jinn, by their nature they do not usually set out to harm or trick humans. Sila are, however, fond of meddling in an attempt to help. That Livejournal community member who intervened when you got over involved with that troll in the George R.R. Martin community?
The original vampires, vetala are semi-malevolent spirits from ancient Indian folklore. They can possess human corpses and prevent them from decaying, and in so doing trick human beings into believing the vetala is an ordinary person. However, vetala can also change shape at will. They are thought to be natural psychics, able to foretell the future and gain insight into the past, as well as read the thoughts of others. The most famous vetala appears in “The Vampire and King Vikram,” a set of stories from the Baital Pachisi. Vetala are quite rare, and while they are certainly intelligent enough to threaten your computer, their superior mental and psychic abilities make technology somewhat irrelevant to their needs. To the extent you are likely to encounter a vetala online, it is likely posing brain-twisting rhetorical questions that keep you on a messageboard well past your bedtime.
Always remember that the unseen can take on disproportionate power —which goes for genies and online demagogues in equal measure. If your blood pressure rises, step away from the computer and make a cup of tea. Vetala are also extremely fond of Words With Friends—they are excellent players and lots of fun to engage with, even if their superior skill may prove frustrating
The Quranic concept of jinn has been briefly discussed before in Life in the Perspective of Quranic Revelations. Arabic lexicon mentions the following as the possible meanings of the word jinn. It literally means anything which has the connotation of concealment, invisibility, seclusion and remoteness. It also has the connotation of thick shades and dark shadows. That is why the word ‘jannah‘ (from the same root word) is employed by the Quran to denote..
In fact this entities is kind of earthly demon and its name is Jinn,jinn can be very clever in specific limits and can imitate living or dead person it can read your mind and feed on your fear,the Jinn follow specific steps before it attack or show it self they follow levels before reaching the red line,Jinn is not pure devil, i mean it is not from the devil race maybe similar in some aspects but not the same in its reaction and symptoms, the western culture use the word demon as a generalising every entity comes from the satan ,so the demon could be devil or satanic entity but this is also wrong way of seeing things,in the old semitic languages .
There is more explanation like shaytan= satan, devil=Eblis also the devil have an older angelic name wich it Azazeel ,so demons should belong to the Jinn kind, jinn is not the devil though they match in some elements they are like cousins ,jinn have also different tribes and forms,and each demon has its special haunting action , symptoms or effects ,influences changes according to the entity kind .
there is also the mixed race which it is the result of pure satan mixed with pure jinn this kind could be aggressive and evil as well,Jinn have kings and leaders like the stars ones ,but some earthly kind are lost alone and could try to inter the human dimension and could serve the devil policy of destroying the human race through magic , bad things, sickness or politics.
Many things humans do without knowledge could open this doors but with less knowledge about what we dealing with and with such ignorant, paranormal experts and such lacking knowledge we would expect more damage and less human effectivity against these entities .
These entities using human anger, depression, aggression, curiosity to dwell in magic and witchcraft, to get stronger and more control of its victims, actually there are many cases of people who got sick from jinn attachments that caused diseases like mental problems or nerves illness , stomach upset and lack of energy and the caused was this demonic entities was .
by using the right knowledge and the right weapon you can not just get rid of the entity but also heal your body and soul, Jinn or Satanic entities can cause humans to believe what they want could also cause unreal events or dreams or create unreal reality ,ycic attacks, and could play with your brain or cause you to do evil thing by controlling your thoughts especially if this entity posses you, beside that we have few kinds of Jinn which it lives among humans and could be sextualy motivated or more attached to humans emotions or cause specialy women sextual disorder.
If you know the nature of the jinn you would understand why im saying that,the jinn nature somehow is low frequency waves of high or low electromagnetic waves go through objects and bodies, paranormal experts and spiritual healers or ghost hunters should be very careful ,you could be hurted badly in different ways , possessed or mentally influenced or physically attacked.
In rare cases Jinn or demons could in special circumstances take form of human for his own purposes In general Entities (demonic nature) not just it can’t attracted to people with such negative thoughts , mental illness, depression,anger and aggression but also they could be the reason of humans negative thoughts and mental illness.When human is sad or depressed he become more vulnerable to negative dark forces( to access him) he becomes defenseless in front of these entities.
We have something called the Aura, or the spiritual defense system,in severe sad situations or when he suffers from trauma this Aura or the biofield energy system get weaker and unstable which it could lead to demonic attraction,the human in this situation is easy victim.
Demonic entities can smell your weakness AND ACTUALLY SEE the weakness in the biofield energy around you it can see the colors and the breaking points and it can enter from the weakest point like attached to your shoulder , hip or abdomen etc.and feel your spiritual system,demons are more likely need more energy to attack or posses strong and stable human rather than weaker human( feels down and weak) that’s why demons usually try to work on your well and your mental power before attacking or haunting you.
For example demonic entities could live long time in your place waiting for the right moment ( dormant -as time and space to them is irrelevant )to appear or attack it will try to cause troubles , hate , aggression , abuse, suicide , depression, bad dreams and anger, addiction and sadness, and then if it succeed they next step will be to engage more and more into the human life till it reach to the compleat possession which is rare , as it can do more harm in been attached to you by leading you to kill, steal, engage in unhealthy behaviours, or destruction , and you will be surprised how many of us have these attachments , i believe that at least 25% of people does .
The Baphomet Satan, from the days of Babylon and the kingdom of Assyria, exists and today many secrets societies and leaders consider him a symbol and God, which exists in many cultures in the nations, especially in the usa, the vatican, Iran,UK, and some part of Europe regions, but his name varies from region to region and from culture to culture.
The angels and the jinn have souls but they are different. The angels are created from light, do not disobey God , and do what they ordered by God, they are a manifestation of mercy and grace of God, opposite to the jinn they were created from fire or/smoke or high electromagnetic radiation, some of them are believers and some are unbelievers, including the righteous and corrupt or the neutrals
There are three or more kinds of Jinn , the flyers , the earthly , the water jinn , and the lowest and from this three kinds comes many mixed kinds, they are in many different shape and color, height and might, knowledge and age, the have children’s and wifes, the wife of the jinn is called HIN,
There is Azazel in Leviticus. I’ve read Rabbi who relate that the “escape goat” bearing the sins of Israel was driven off a cliff to appease the desert demons (jinn) or simply driven off into the desert to appease the demons (jinn) whom the believed lived there.
The Jewish Encyclopedia states…
“The Rabbis, interpreting “Azazel” as “Azaz” (rugged), and “el” (strong), refer it to the rugged and rough mountain cliff from which the goat was cast down (Yoma 67b; Sifra, Aḥare, ii. 2; Targ. Yer. Lev. xiv. 10, and most medieval commentators).Most modern scholars, after having for some time indorsed the old view, have accepted the opinion mysteriously hinted at by Ibn Ezra and expressly stated by Naḥmanides to Lev. xvi. 8, that Azazel belongs to the class of “se’irim,” goat-like demons, jinn haunting the desert, to which the Israelites were wont to offer sacrifice (Lev. xvii. 7 [A. V. “devils”]…”
Jinn are one of the Divine creations of Allāh. They, like human beings, have a physical form, intellect and senses, but are hidden from the human eye. The existence of Jinn is established by conclusive and incontestable evidence in the Qur’ān and Sunnah.
Allāh says in the Qur’ān:
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ صَلْصَالٍ مِنْ حَمَإٍ مَسْنُونٍ. وَالْجَانَّ خَلَقْنَاهُ مِنْ قَبْلُ مِنْ نَارِ السَّمُومِ
“And certainly We have created mankind from sounding clay made of decayed mud. As for Jinn, We had created them earlier from the fire of the scorching wind.”
The creation of Jinn was well before that of humankind and they had wreaked havoc in the earth right from the beginning. Allāh alludes to this in the Qur’ān:
وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً قَالُوا أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَنْ يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ
“Remember when your lord said to the angels, ‘I am going to create a deputy on the earth.’ They said, ‘Will You create there one who will spread disorder on the earth and cause bloodshed, while we proclaim Your purity along with your praise, and sanctify your name?’”
This was after the angels had witnessed the mischief of the Jinn on earth. However, just as humans, Allāh has created Jinn for his obedience and subservience. Allāh says:
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُون ِ
“And I have not created Jinn and human beings except that they worship me.”
However, as is the case with humankind, there are those that are obedient to Allāh and those that are disobedient. It is these disobedient ones that cause mischief in on earth. They have the potential of harming humans. However, one should not be fearful of Jinn. It is the fear that people have of them that gives them the courage to cause mischief and harm. The people of Arabia would live in great fear of these Jinn before the advent of Islām. It was customary in the days of ignorance that when people halted in a jungle or valley in the course of a journey, they uttered the following words, believing that the leader of the valley (a Jinn) would protect them:
“I seek refuge in the leader of this valley from the foolish mischief-makers of his nation.”
Allāh discusses this in the Qur’ān:
وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ رِجَالٌ مِنَ الْإِنْسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٍ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَزَادُوهُمْ رَهَقًا
“And some individuals of the humans would seek refuge in some individuals of the Jinn, and thus they (humans) increased their (Jinn’s) mischief.”
Islām distances itself from such a level of fear and belief in the Jinn that they are superior to humans and humans should remain fearful of them. The mischief and evils of Jinn cannot be negated. However, it is inappropriate to attribute every unusual occurrence, illness and difficulty to the Jinn.
You must see doctors , clinical psychologists and psychiatrists before you balem anything and everything happening to your health to the Jinn as I see with some tv shows and many paranormal investigators , they never ask a doctor first or seek help from the health providers to make sure that the person do not suffer from severe anxiety , depression, delusion, psychosis, paranoia, insomnia , living in a place with high co2, or CO, that enough to cause you hallucination , and that all scientifically proven that all these disease and syndrome can led you see, hear and feel paranormal incidents and some other form of aggression and anger with the mix of some medications can also make you feel that you have a paranormal experiences, like living close high voltage line and high EMF , or in a place with high infrasound from appliances, or in a place with special stones, rock and cortez that can store sound energies and when some wind pass throw it crats and play the sound that stored in them ,and it could be hundreds years old ,like a record and the wind act as the needle .
You can see these phenomena in water, clouds, rocks, like a residual energies and NORMAL VARIANTS that we can explain.So please keep your open mind, keep your faith , know that we are not alone, yet seek the scientific explanation first before you blame the jinn .
Remember that thousand of years ago people used to look at the sun ,moon and stars and thought they were God ,Including Abraham himself the father of all faith but he managed with reason and wisdom from God to reject those objects and turn to almighty God who creates all . But some other leaders managed to use this and asked the people to worship them for their gain like the pharaoh of egypt,
kings of persia and rome etc.
As the bible talked about demons who talked to Jesus ;
When He arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met Him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way.
“What do you want with us, prophet of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?”
Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding.
The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.”
Very clear, they are bacteria and these bacteria, that infected those 2 men need another host, if they were to be forced out.
