Question

What were the Jinn created from?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.

 

The Jinn were created from fire; Allaah Says (what means): {And the Jinn We created before from scorching fire.} [Quran 15: 27] The Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, told us that the angels were created from light, the jinn were created from fire and Aadam  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention was created from clay; then their procreation - humans and jinn - was from water (semen). Allaah Says (what means): {Allaah has created every [living] creature from water.} [Quran 24: 45].

Allaah Knows best.
