The jinn listening to the Qur'an and asking them to work accordingly


A: There is evidence affirming that the Message of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is intended for both Jinn and human beings. Allah (Exalted be He) says, That he or it (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم or the Qur’ân) may give warning to him who is living (a healthy minded - the believer), and that Word (charge) may be justified against the disbelievers (dead, as they reject the warnings). Since the Jinn are living and healthy-minded, this Ayah also applies to them. Allah (Exalted be He) says, ...it (the Qur’ân) is no less than a Reminder and an advice unto the ‘Alamîn (men and jinn). As shown in the above Ayah, the word '`Alamin' includes human beings and Jinn. Allah (Exalted be He) says, And We have sent you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): not but as a mercy for the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists). Furthermore, it is the same as the previous Ayah. He (Exalted be He) also says, Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): "What thing is the most great in witness?" Say: "Allâh (the Most Great!) is Witness between me and you; this Qur’ân has been revealed to me that I may therewith warn you and whomsoever it may reach. (Part No. 3; Page No. 364) The Jinn are among those whom the message of Muhammad (peace be upon him) reached. Allah (Exalted be He) says, Blessed be He Who sent down the criterion (of right and wrong, i.e. this Qur’ân) to His slave (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) that he may be a warner to the ‘Alamîn (mankind and jinn). Having shown the creation of mankind and Jinn, and the origin from which they are created, and the many favors given to them, Allah (Exalted be He) reproaches both the Jinn and mankind in the Qur'an, which represents the Shari`ah of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his Ummah, for their ingratitude. He (Exalted be He) says, Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinn and men) deny? This Ayah is repeated many times after mentioning the favors given to both mankind and Jinn. Moreover, Allah (Exalted be He) shows the types of reward that mankind and the Jinn will receive if they are grateful to Allah (Exalted be He) through abiding by Tawhid and obedience. Also, Allah (Exalted be He) warns both mankind and the Jinn of the consequences of showing ingratitude for these favors.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
