Jinn entering Paradise

Q 1: Allah (Exalted be He) stated, And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone). (Part No. 2; Page No. 491) Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) stated, "All people will enter Paradise except those who refuse." Then it was asked, "O Messenger of Allah, who may ever refuse?" He said, "Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me will enter Hellfire." We know that the Jinn and mankind worship Allah Who promised Paradise to those who worship Him. Then, why are not the Jinn mentioned here given that they worship Allah as well? We ask that Your Honor clarify this point substantiated by evidence.

A: The correct opinion is that the believing Jinn will enter Paradise. In this context, Allah (Exalted be He) says, But for him who fears the standing before his Lord, there will be two Gardens (i.e. in Paradise). Whoever meets this description by having firm faith and performing righteous deeds is a believer. Allah promised the believers to admit them into Paradise. He (Exalted be He) also says, "Verily those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, shall have the Gardens of Al-Firdaus (Paradise) for their entertainment. He (Exalted be He) further says, O our people! Respond (with obedience) to Allâh’s Caller (i.e. Allâh’s Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), and believe in him (i.e. Believe in that which Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم has brought from Allâh and follow him). He (Allâh) will forgive you of your sins, and will save you from a painful torment (i.e. Hell-fire). These Ayahs (Qur'anic Verses) indicate explicitly that those who respond to the call of their Prophet and believe in Allah will be rewarded with forgiveness of their sins and salvation from punishment. Therefore, it is understood that they will enter Paradise, for there is nothing in the Hereafter except Paradise or Hell. So, those who will be saved from Hell will enter Paradise.
