Jin or jann are supernatural creatures in Islamic mythology as well as pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. They are mentioned frequently in the Quran (the 72nd sura is titled Sūrat al-Jinn) and other Islamic texts and inhabit an unseen world, another universe beyond the known universe. The Quran says that the djinn are made of a smokeless and “scorching fire”, but are also physical in nature,being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and likewise be acted upon. The djinn, humans, and angels make up the three known sapient creations of God.Like human beings, the djinn can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent and hence have free will like humans and unlike angels.The shaytan jinn are the analogue of demons in Christian tradition, but the djinn are not angels and the Quran draws a clear distinction between the two creations. The Quran states in surat Al-Kahf (The Cave), Ayah 50, that Iblis (Azazel) is one of the djinn.
