Who is the first Jinn

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 1:

1 O mankind! Reverence your Guardian-Lord Who created you from a single person (Adam (a.s.)); created of like nature his mate (Hawwa); and from them twain scattered countless men and women; reverence Allah through Whom ye demand your mutual (rights) and (reverence) the wombs (that bore you): for Allah ever watches over you.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 49 Surah Hujuraat verse 13:

13 O mankind! We created you all from a single (pair) of a male (Adam (a.s.) and a female (Hawwa) and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).


Allah Subhanah guides in His Glorious Quran that without an iota of a doubt, all human beings are the off-spring of one set of parents: ie. Adam (a.s.) and Hawwa.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Hijr verses 26-27:

26 We created man (Adam) from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape;

27 And the Jinn race We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind.


What we do know with absolute conviction from the Guidance of the Glorious Quran is that the Lord Most Majestic created the Jinns before the human beings. The Glorious Quran as well as the authentic and established Sunnah are absolutely silent regarding who exactly was the first Jinn to be created by the Lord….if the knowledge of who exactly was the first Jinn to be created was important or significant for the guidance of man to the Right Path, or that information was necessary for the salvation of man, Allah and His Messenger (saws) would surely have made it known to man!


The fact that Allah and His Messenger (saws) have chosen to remain silent on this issue is evident that the knowledge of who exactly was the first Jinn to be created is neither necessary, nor important, nor significant for the guidance of man.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
