The Djinn

Being how I've always been fascinated by magic and magical beings, the Djinn for one and having many books about such creatures, I thought I'd share with you about the Djinn.



A Brief History of Djinn:

Djinn are powerful magical beings of Arabian descent. These creatures live in all area of the Arabia and in a similar way to Faeries of European legend, they are soul-less creatures that once were spirits of nature, created from smoke and fire. Throughout history, the Djinn took mortals as slaves, teachers, lovers and even food. By the time of Solomon, Djinn were very well known, and he had bound at least 70 of them to his service through the use of a special ring (or Talisman).

With the rise of Muhammed and the spread of Islam, the Djinn began losing power and lands. A great Council of Choice was held to determine a way to stop the Djinn from leaving the lands of the mortals forever. After much debate, it was decided that the Djinn and their followers must either side with the Islamic peoples, or fight them. Half sided with Muhammed and the rest did not. Once the choices were made, the Djinn were split between good and evil, and they were given the responsibility of a soul...

The Nature of Djinn:

After the Choice, Djinn all received souls. They had to choose between being Muslim or Diabolical. They all possess uncanny powers of course, as evidenced by the desire of so many to put these creatures into servitude. Most Djinn can change their appearance to that of an animal and in fact retain some of the animal's characteristics, such as horns, tail or fur. Many Djinn have the ability to fly and most can create powerful illusions... The strictest forms of Islam eye the Djinn with great suspicion due to their magical nature. Naturally, Christians view Djinn as evil or minions of Satan and this can be used as a tool by truly evil Djinn to create enemies for the good Djinn.

Djinn live for a very long time, and increase in power as they age. They begin to master natural magical abilities, such as enchanting objects, prophecy and control over the weather and elements. Many younger Djinn fear that as the centuries pass, they will lose power and eventually become as mundane mortals.

The Djinn and Mortals:

Obviously, the Djinn are far more powerful than mortals. At one time, they were worshipped as gods, however, they tend now to treat humans with the same respect and hospitality that they wish to receive. They are very careful about allowing Men to know their true nature, as mortals can bind them to servitude through the use of objects designed for this purpose. Sometimes, humans and a Djinni mate, either through choice or capture, and the offspring will possess some of the traits common to the Djinn.

According to the Quran, Allah (God) created man from clay, angles from light, and jinn from fire.

From the History of the Djinn.

Date: 8/19/2009 4:52:00 AM  From Authorid: 21266    Hello there Jinn are made of fire just like how humans are made of mud. They are capable of changing into animals and humans. They live, eat, reproduce, just like humans. They are sometimes used for black magic. Black magic is very popular amongst the Arab world, it's Haram {forbidden} in Islam and unforgivable, as they have to bow to the Satan and convert to satanism for them to hold so much power. {Both the Jinnie and the human} There's so much to the world of Jinn which I don't know about.
