Arabian Mythology - Djinn [Jinn], The Unseen Picture

The Jinn (Also spelled Djinn), or Genies, are Spirits mentioned in the Qur’ān and Islamic theology who inhabit an unseen world in dimensions beyond the visible universe of humans. Together, the Jinn, Humans and Angels make up the three sentient creations of God. The Qur’an mentions that the jinn are made of a smokeless and "scorching fire" and they have the physical property of weight. Like human beings, the Jinn can also be Good, Evil, or Neutrally benevolent and hence have freewill like humans and unlike angels. The Jinn are mentioned frequently in the Qurʾan, and the 72nd Surah is titled Sūrat al-Jinn.
Jinn is a noun of the collective number in Arabic literally meaning "hidden from sight", and it derives from the Arabic root j-n-n (pronounced: Jann/ Junn meaning "to hide" or "be hidden". Other words derived from this root are Majnūn 'mad' (literally, 'one whose intellect is hidden'), Junūn 'madness', and Janīn 'embryo, fetus' ('hidden inside the womb').
Among archaeologists dealing with ancient Middle Eastern cultures, any spirit less than angels is often referred to as a Jinni, especially when describing stone carvings or other forms of art.
Inscriptions found in Northwestern Arabia seem to indicate the worship of Jinn, or at least their tributary status, hundreds of years before Islam. For instance, an inscription from Beth Fasi'el near Palmyra pays tribute to the "jinnaye", the "good and rewarding gods".
In One Thousand and One Nights, there are depicted several types of Jinn that coexist and interact with humans: Shayṭān, the Ghūl, the Marīd, the ‘Ifrīt, and the Angels. The One Thousand and One Nights seems to present ‘Ifrits as the most massive and strongest forms of Jinn, and Marids are a type of Jinn associated with seas and oceans.
