[Taken from lesson 30 from ‘kitaabul aathaan’, the chapter of the characteristics of the prayer, from saheehul Bukhaari رحمه الله]

By our Shaykh, the ‘Allāmah, the Trustworthy Advisor, Abu ‘Abdirrahmān Yahya bin ‘Ali Al-Hajūri – may Allāh preserve him –

“Al-haafidh bin hajr رحمه الله has mentioned a numerous amount of names of companions from the jinn in his book “Al-isaabah”:

01- Abyadh Al-jinni
02- Al-Adras Al-jinni
03- Al-Arqam Al-jinni
04- Haasar Al-jinni
05- Hassaan Al-jinni
06- Z’alab Al-jinni
07- Zooba’ah Al-jinni
08- Saleet Al-jinni
09- Shsaar Al-jinni
10- Abdur-noor Al-jinni
11- Ghuthaym Al-jinni
12- ‘Arfatah bin samaah Al-jinni
13- ‘Amr bin jaabir Al-jinni
14- ‘Amr Al-jinni, and he is a different ‘Amr from the one mentioned before
15- Lahqam Al-jinni
16- Maalik bin Maalik Al-jinni
17- Naamir Al-jinni
18- Mu’takad bin muhlahal bin dathaar Al-jinni
19- Munsa-ah Al-jinni
20- Wardaan Al-jinni

From that which is apparent, those that attended that gathering were many, Allah said:

(وَإِذْ صَرَفْنَا إِلَيْكَ نَفَرًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقُرْآنَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُوهُ قَالُوا أَنْصِتُوا ۖ فَلَمَّا قُضِيَ وَلَّوْا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِمْ مُنْذِرِينَ)

“And (remember) when We sent towards you (Muhammad SAW) Nafran (three to ten persons) of the jinn’s, (quietly) listening to the Quran, when they stood in the presence thereof, they said: “Listen in silence!” And when it was finished, they returned to their people, as warner’s.” [Surat Al-Ahqaf 29]

Only a number of them has been mentioned however that which is apparent is that the seniors from the jinn attended the gathering of the jinn.

So they attended believing in the prophet ﷺ, they met the prophet ﷺ believing in him and died upon that, they were companions may Allah be pleased with them. And they used to gather their zakaat for the prophet ﷺ, and also spend it upon the righteous amongst the jinn, and they used to establish that which Allah had made obligatory upon them:

(وَأَنَّا مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ وَمِنَّا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَ ۖ كُنَّا طَرَائِقَ قِدَدًا)

“There are among us some that are righteous, and some the contrary; we are groups each having a different way (religious sect, etc.)” [Surat Al-Jinn 11]

And the righteous ones from the jinn do not harm the righteous ones (whether they are jinn or human)

(..مِنَّا الصَّالِحُونَ…)

“There are among us some that are righteous…”

And from their righteousness is that they do not harm, harm is from the evil ones amongst the jinn eg: knocking others out, possessing them etc.. You would find a Christian or Hindu or Jew or a disobedient Muslim that does not know the true religion of committing actions like this.

There are no messengers from the jinn-kind, rather there are Warner’s Allah said:

(وَإِذْ صَرَفْنَا إِلَيْكَ نَفَرًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقُرْآنَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُوهُ قَالُوا أَنْصِتُوا ۖ فَلَمَّا قُضِيَ وَلَّوْا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِمْ مُنْذِرِينَ)

And (remember) when We sent towards you (Muhammad SAW) Nafran (three to ten persons) of the jinns, (quietly) listening to the Quran, when they stood in the presence thereof, they said: “Listen in silence!” And when it was finished, they returned to their people, as warners. [Surat Al-Ahqaf 29]
