The D’ jinn (also djinn or genies, Arabic: الجن‎ al-jinn, singular الجني al-jinnī) are spiritual creatures in Islam and Arabic folklore. They are mentioned in the Qur’an and other Islamic texts and inhabit an unseen world in dimensions beyond the visible universe of humans. Together, the jinn, humans and angels make up the three sapient creations of God.

The Qur’an mentions that the jinn are made of a smokeless and “scorching fire”, but are also physical in nature, being able to interact physically with people and objects and likewise be acted upon. (clarification needed) Like human beings, the jinn can also be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent and hence have free will like humans and unlike angels. The jinn are mentioned frequently in the Qurʾan, and the 72nd sura is titled Sūrat al-Jinn.

The occurrence and worship of divine beings has been consistent throughout the history of mankind since its early history. Many of the various “religions” or spheres of worship express a belief that the original gods came to Idam (meaning “this” or “here”) from “beyond the stars”. This occurrence is common in Babylonian, Greek, Aztec, and myths of African plains men.

The Annunaki legend meets these beliefs at the cross roads of mans devotion. Myths of the alien creators or shapers of mankind fit with the claims of Semetic beliefs when changes on key translations are applied.

Myths are perhaps the collective expression of mankind’s infancy. Or perhaps myths are but an archive of our past. Perhaps we should still fear the night and the wrath of gods,
