Weekly Wisdom - 7/3 : The Jinn

Hadith - Sahih Muslim 6757, Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, similar narration 6759 by 'Aisha, r.a.
Allah's Apostle May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Apostle May Allah's peace and blessings be on him with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.

Imam Mohammed responding to a question about the jinn nature:

"The Jinn is an aspect and a property of human nature. The Prophet called his Jinn he said, "I had one!" That means that was a property belonging to him "But he became Muslim." So that would support what you're saying that is in human nature and that's given to us also in Qubad. Qubad means"In one entity, tied together like the fist." This is Qubad, that's what it means. See say "Qubad, Qabda", means "Make a fist" from Qubad. "Qubad" means "Tied together or put together like a fist holding like a fist. So "Get ye down from here Qubad, all together" it's translated. Right? All together.

That tells us that those entities that are addressed separately to form a narration is done depicting elements or components in our own essential human nature. That's the rational man, pardon me, the social man, that's our original nature the social man. IWDM RS 1995
