… vs Man’s Intellectual Strength
However, Man was created with a superior intellect and a more noble station…
The Evil Jinn Feels Inferior To Man
The evil shayateen amongst the Jinn, first and foremost Iblees, let their arrogance get the better of them and resent feeling inferior to the noble station granted to Man by Allah.
The Origins of Magic
The Quran tells us of how Allah sent angels Harut and Marut to the people of Babylon to test them with the knowledge of Magic.
What is Magic
Magic is the intersection between the world of the Jinn and that of Man.
How the Jinn and Magician Debase Themselves
The Magician is an evil person who debases himself in front of the Jinn to make the Jinn feel superior. In return the Jinn performs the ‘supernatural’ acts.
How to Protect Oneself
The Jinn are terrified of iman, taqwa and your belief in Allah.
Don’t Be Scared
Showing fear puts the Jinn in control. Only Allah is to be feared.
