Muslims of Jinns will enter Paradise
Fatwa No: 86244


It is known that Muslim Jinns will go to Jannah, Insha Allah. Will we see them in Jannah and is there any Saheeh evidence on this issue?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. The prevailing opinion of Muslim scholars is that the believers of Jinn will enter the Paradise just as the believers of human beings. They base their opinion on the verse: {They are those against whom the Word (of torment) is justified among the previous generations of jinns and mankind that have passed away. Verily! They are ever the losers. And for all, there will be degrees according to that which they did, that He (Allâh) may recompense them in full for their deeds. And they will not be wronged.}[46:18-19]. As for seeing them in Paradise, Muhammad bin Abdullah al-Shibli al-Hanafi died 769 A.H., wrote in his book "Ahkam al-Jinn" (rulings of Jinn) reporting from al-Harith al-Muhasibi who said: We will see the believers of Jinn who enter the Paradise, while they cannot see us unlike the situation in this World . However, unseen matters cannot be perceived by minds, so one should not approve or deny except based on sound evidences of Shariah. Allah knows best.
