Q. Since the dead do not return from their graves, what are the visions of a ‘ghost’?
A. Islam explains the realm of the unseen: the jinn. The jinn are creations of Allah that live in the world parallel to us.
Jinn is an Arabic word derived from the verb, Janna, which means to conceal or hide. As their name suggests, jinn are physically invisible from us. And this invisibility is probably the reason why some of us have been denying their existence. Regarding the jinn’s origin, it is mentioned that:
“Indeed, We have created man from dried clay of black smooth mud.
And We have created the jinn before that from the smokeless flame of the fire.”
[Al Hijr 15:26-27]
Like ourselves, Allah has created and has required the jinn to worship Him.
“I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.”
[Al Dhariyat 51:56]
