Man who claims to know language of jinn
Fatwa No: 348001

Question

Assalaamu alaykum, dear Muslim Brothers. We all know that the Muslims form one nation, one Ummah (community), and one body, both the jinn and the humans... As the disbelievers cooperate, so have the Muslims cooperated for centuries, and that is a fact. There is a guy in Turkey who asserts and claims that he speaks to all tribes, kinds, religions, etc. of the jinn with a very different, never heard, glottal language, and he communicates successfully. He has many videos on YouTube where he proves that there is a special language of the jinn, and he forces them to confess that there is a common language amongst the jinn that is known by only a few living people. He asks them if they have ever met a man who knows the jinn language, and most of the jinn say, "No, never." Only one or two said, "Yes, I have seen or heard." He says that at the age of five or six, after unwittingly urinating in a Muslim saint's grave, he was soon told what kind of place it was, and he felt so sorry and guilty, with a pure, innocent child's heart, that he returned to the grave and apologized, prayed, and cried and then went back home. And he says that that night, he started to see, to communicate, to play, and to be educated in Islam on how to help haunted Muslims, even imams, and how to cancel magic by the help of first Allaah and then many Muslim jinn, who he says belong to 11 different tribes. He verily claims that he can prove it to anyone who wants and wants Islam's scholars to search for him and use him. What do you say about this? May Allaah help all Muslims to see and understand the truth. May Allaah be with you, Brothers.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

It is the scholars and righteous people in that country who should be asked about that man.

In general, what is mentioned here in seeking the help of jinn and addressing them and the fact that this matter is linked to graves and so forth, then this is often the case of magicians and their like.

What is mentioned is also a kind of self-conceit and arrogance; otherwise, what does it mean that he asks that Muslim scholars should look for him and use his abilities? The scholars are indeed busy propagating the Truth and teaching the nation its religion.

Allah knows best.
