Can the Jinn Contract A Marriage?

Jinnah have the same need in marriage and procreation.

Ibni Hajar Al Hataymi said: "The fact that the jinn have a need for the conclusion of a marriage between sex and procreation shows verse of the Holy Quran:

"And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange". (The Quran, 18:50)

Alusi, as well as Qadi Abdul-Jabbar, believed that this verse is a clear proof that the jinn have the ability to procreate, and no matter what the nature of their creation and essentially different from ours. For Allah is no difficulty in the creation of something, it is enough to say, "Be!" and it will be. (Imam Shibli Akamul-Marjan fi ahkamul-jan, page 48)

Another evidence of the fact that Jinn breed shows the following verses of the Holy Quran:

"In them are women limiting [their] glances, untouched before them by man or jinni". (The Quran, 55:56)

Ibni Hajar Al Hataymi explaining this verse, wrote the following: "This verse proves the jinn are divided into male and female gender, and concluding marriages among themselves, they continue their race, creating a new offspring". (Ibni Hajar Al Hateymi, Al-Fataval hadith, page 68)

Ibnul-Dzavzi wrote in "Zadul masir": "This verse proves that there are the jinn masculine, as well as the people who need the female gender for procreation".

Evidence of heterosexual jinn can serve the same following hadith in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) when he went to the toilet reading the following prayer:

"Allahumma inni aguzubikya minal hubsi wal habais"

Which means, "O Allah I seek refuge in you against dirt/evil and the evil ones (jinn male and female)" (Bukhari, Dagvat 14, № 5963,5/2330; Muslim, Haiz 32, № 857,1/195)

Ibni Hajar al-Asqalani and Ibni Hibban held to an opinion that in this case the "hubs" jinnah masculine and "habais" jinnah female.
