The Thaqalaan

Who are the thaqalaan?

  • The word thagalaan refer to people and jinn. Both are responsible for their actions.
  • The jinn live in ruins and dirty places.
  • Their world is hidden from people. Some characteristics of the jinn are:

1- The jinn are created from fire and people usually cannot see them.

2- They are able to choose between good and bad just like people.

3- They have families.

4-Some of them are Muslims and others are not.

  • In this aayah, Allah ﷻ mentions that people are created from mud and the jinn from fire.The aayah also shows that the jinn were created before people.
  • Jinn are able to eat and drink.

Allah ﷻ says in the Qur’aan

“And we did certainly create man of clay from altered black mud and the jinn before from scorching fire” (Soorat al-Hijr:26-27)

The Prophet ﷺ told

Muslims not to use bones for istijmaar because it is food for the jinn.

  • Some of the jinn are believers, who will be rewarded by Allah ﷻ , and others are disbelievers who will be punished. In Soorat al-Jinn, Allah ﷻ commanded the Prophet ﷺ to inform the people that a group of the jinn listened to the Qur’aan .Some of them believed in it,accepted its truthfulness and then followed it.

Allah ﷻ says that the jinn said:

“And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways.” (Soorat al-Jinn:11)


  1. Discuss the places where the jinn might live .

Why Were the Thaqalaan Created?

Why did Allah ﷻ create jinn and people? What is their purpose?

  • Iblees (Devil) was a jinn who worshipped Allah ﷻ , just like the angels in Paradise did. When Allah ﷻ created Aadam (عليه السلام) , He told all the angels to prostrate to Aadam (عليه السلام) , which they did. Iblees refused to prostrate.
  • Iblees was arrogant and jealous, he disobeyed Allah’s ﷻ command. Allah ﷻ then ordered Iblees to leave Paradise.

“He said, ‘Never would I prostrate to a human whom You created out of clay, from an altered black mud.” [Allah] said, “Then get out of it, for indeed, you are expelled.” (Soorat al-Hijr: 33-34)

  • The thaqalaan have the ablitiy to choose between good and evil. In the Qur’aan, Allah ﷻ reminds them of their purpose.

Allah ﷻ says in the Qur’aan

“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” (Soorat adh-Dhaariyaat: 56)

  • The purpose of the thaqalaan is to worship Allah ﷻ and to avoid shirk. Allah ﷻ sent many Prophets with revelation to guide the thaqalaan so that they may know the purpose of their creation.
  • Whenever Allah ﷻ sent a Prophet to a community, the message he conveyed to the people reached the jinn as well. Some of the jinn and people accepted the message and others rejected it.


  1. Why did Allah create the jinn and people? What does Allah say about them in the Qur’aan?
  2. What was sent to the thaqalaan, for them to know the purpose of their creation ?

Soorat al-Mursalaat:

20.Alam nakhlukkum mimmaaa’im maheenHave We not created you from a fluid (held) despicable?-أَلَمْ نَخْلُقْكُمْ مِنْ مَاءٍ مَهِينٍ

We learn from the soorah:

  • The wind and the angels perform various tasks in obedience to Allah ﷻ .
  • The resurrection and reckoning will definitely take place.
  • All the Prophets will be called to testify about their people on the Day of Judgment.
  • Allah ﷻ warns those who reject faith in Him about a severe punishment on that day.
