2010 Vol. 6: Nov/Dec
Muslims know that they are not the only creatures on earth. Among the many other forms of life, they believe in spirit beings. They refer to these beings as the jinn. They also believe that some of the jinn are good and that others are evil. It is the evil jinn that Muslims fear the most. According to Islamic teaching, the evil jinn serve as Satan’s cohorts or legions. Their aim is to continue their rebellion against God by inflicting harm on people.
