Jinn are Created from Fire


Jinn are other kind of creations of God. Like angels, the jinn's appearance also differs from that of man. In the Qur’an we are told that man was created from clay, while the jinn were created from fire:

We created mankind out of dried clay formed from fetid black mud. We created the jinn before, out of the fire of a searing wind. (Surat al-Hijr, 26-27)

He created man from dry earth like baked clay, and He created the jinn from a fusion of fire. (Suratar-Rahman, 14-15)

In the Qur'an, God also reveals His purpose in creating man and the jinn:

I only created jinn and man to worship Me. (Suratadh-Dhariyat, 56)

It is clear that even though man and the jinn are very different beings they both were created to worship only God by living by the values He prescribed. God has revealed in many verses that both angels and the jinn have some characteristics that differ from human characteristics. For instance, both can transport matter: 

He (Solomon) said, "Council! Who among you will bring me her (the Queen of Sheba's) throne before they come to me in submission?" An audacious one among the jinn said, "I will bring it to you before you get up from your seat. I am strong and trustworthy enough to do it." (Surat an-Naml, 38-39)

The Qur'an also reveals that the jinn, just like the angels, were created before man. When He created the Prophet Adam (pbuh) God commanded the angels and the jinn to prostrate before him. After that, He reveals that satan is one of the jinn: 

When We said to the angels, "Prostrate yourselves to Adam," they prostrated, with the exception of Diabolis. He was one of the jinn and wantonly deviated from his Lord's command. Do you take him and his offspring as protectors apart from Me when they are your enemy? How evil is the exchange the wrongdoers make! (Surat al-Kahf, 50)

Creation is easy for God, Who can create from nothing and with no previous cause. Just as He created the angels and the jinn in different forms from nothing, He also created man as a separate being from nothing and with no need for evolution. The same applies to other living things, such as animals and plants. God created all of these spontaneously out of nothing and without having them evolve – in other words, without turning one species into another. Every one of these is a product of the flawless systems God's might and sovereignty brought about.
