What are Jinns made up of?


This question was consecrated as in the verses of the Holy Qur'an and the hadiths of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

The Quran says:

“And the jinn We created before from scorching fire”. (The Quran, 15:27)
“And He created the jinn from a smokeless flame of fire”. (The Quran, 55:15)

In the Quran, in the description of the fire, from which created the jinn used two – term “samum” and “marij”. There are the following interpretation of these terms:

Ibn Abbas (radyyallahu anhu) explaining what is “samum”, said: “It is the wind which could kill or fire without smoke”.

Ibn Mas'ud (radyyallahu anhu) also said: “Samum - one of seventy pieces of fire of hell”. (Tafsirul – Qurtubi, 10\23).

“Marij” Ibni Abbas explained as follows: “This is the place where the mix of red, green and yellow colors of fire”.

According to Imam Lyays, Marij is the brightest and most powerful part of the fire. (Tafsirul – Qurtubi, 17\161).

Accordingly, from the above it becomes evident that the jinn are created from heavy fire without smoke.
