Imam Karim AbuZaid is a senior Imam and respected Muslim scholar. January 2014 Imam Zaid gave a lecture series on the world of the unseen. The following is a transcript of a segment from part 2 of the lecture series.
Every bone that, before it is eaten, the person who ate it says
bismillah… So now if you want to benefit the jinn,
the Muslim jinn, your brothers, before you eat the meat and
there is a bone say bismillah. because they will not eat anything that does not
have bismillah on it. But because of the name of Allah when they go to
eat it, meat all over it again.
So you leave the bone, you say bismillah… Muslim jinn and the Kafr
does not eat whatever Allah’s name is mentioned on it. So the bone
that you leave and you did not mention Allah’s name on it, the jinn, Kafr jinn
the shaytan will eat it. But the Muslim jinn he will eat the one. When he picks
it up, a lot of meat on it and he eats it.
And the dung is the food of the animals of the jinn not their food.
And the dung is the provision for your animal.
If you do not want to harm the Muslim jinn, do not use them
to clean yourself after, doing number two or doing number one.
Because this is the food of your brothers from the jinn. So
now,,,, see the interaction with the unseen. When you eat meat, when you eat
meat, chicken, halal chicken, and then there is a bone inside, make sure that
you say bismillah and leave it for your brothers. And when you see a
bone like this, do not use it for such a thing [ass wipe].
We understand from this – look at the discipline of a Muslim – that
you should not try to spoil the food of the jinn.
If you eat, eat with your right hand. If you drink, drink with your right
hand. Because Satan eats and drinks with his left.
Also they drink alcohol, the Shaitan. But the Muslim jinn they don’t. They
drink alcohol -the alcohol that we have, they drink it. – the Satan does.
You can get Shaitan drunk, getting him high so he can think
really good for you.
Allah said in the Quran regarding the hoorlain in jannah.
The women in Jannah, what did Allah say about them? They were not
touched. They did not have intercourse with inse or man.
Here is the question that we brought up. Do mankind or can mankind
marry from jinn? Let’s establish the views of the scholars
regarding the matter. First of all, there are scholars who did
not object to that at all – that the human can marry a jinn. Here is
another Hadith that actually can indicate that, when you come to have
intercourse with your wife, you should say what? Bismillah… that’s
when you’re about… what that means, if you don’t say it, the Shaitan is
going to be what? He will be there with you. Like eating. And the fact
that the Hadith spoke about the offspring. Now look at the
Hadith. You all know that Hadith right? I’m assuming that you know it. That’s
when you come to your wife, you want to have intercourse, you should say
bismillah. In the name of Allah, protect me from Satan and protect my
offspring from Satan. That means Satan can produce what?
The lifespan of the jinn. There is no doubt that
jinn and Satan do die. Jinn and inns do die. But we have one
exception from the jinn – Ibliz Satan. Why? Because,
at the beginning of time when Allah disgraced him, rejected him from the
mercy…. Allow me to live until the day that they are resurrected.
How long do they live? Allah knows best. But it sounds like, it sounds like
their lifespan is longer than the humans.
Where do they live and they hang around? They also
dwell in our homes if we allow them. That’s why, before you enter, you should
say bismillah. You should recite Surah al-aqarah and ayat al-qursi. They
spread…. when the sun sets. They spread, they go out. When the sun
sets, around that time, bring your kids inside. Because this is the time when
the jinn spreads.
Also do not sit between the shade and the sun because
that’s their favorite place to sit. You understand that? You have a shade
and the sun, don’t sit between those two. Sit under the shade or behind.
Do not pray in the places where camels sit. Because that is the
place where there is Satan. But the places where the sheep and the
goats are, where you have them, pray there.
