Points Regarding the Difference between a Shaytaan & a Jinn


  • The Jinn are a class amongst the creation/the Shayateen are the rebellious amongst them
  • The Shayateen are from the Jinn as well as mankind
  • Both the Shayateen from the Jinn and mankind are included in the category of Shayateen
  • Ash Shaytaan is the forefather of the Jinn, their leader
  • Whoever rebelled from his progeny and transgressed over the boundaries is a shaytaan
  • Those amongst them (his progeny) who are steadfast upon worshiping Allaah are not from the Shayateen, rather they are believers
  • Amongst them is the Muslim, the non-Muslim, the innovator, the Sunnee, the Raafidee, the Shuyoo’ee, the Mu’tazilee, the Jahmee, just like mankind
