Seeking the help of Jinn

A: It is not permissible to seek help from the Jinn and those who are not in someone's reach. This is Shirk as it is an act of worship that should be dedicated to Allah Alone, not to any person, jinn, angel, or any other being. A living person who is capable of providing assistance may be sought to help in agriculture, construction, combating enemies, etc. The Jinn, on the other hand, must not be sought for help whether they are reachable or absent. This is because Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) (Part No. 1; Page No. 199) states, You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, "If you need assistance, supplicate to Allah Alone for help."May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
