Question:

I have a question and hoepfully you can help me, I have a question that is being bothering me for sometimes. Please help me with answering it; Can Jinn take the form of humans? If yes how do you know if you are dealing with a human or Djinn? Please do provide me some dalil.

Answer:

Praises are to Allah, and peace be upon prophet Muhammed.

Jinns (shaitans) are only able to affect people when they go
away from the ilm and remembrance of Allah, especially if they
do so for a long time. If one learns the ilm and remembers Allah,
the jinns immediately retreat. One should do much dhikr,
recite Aayah al-Kursee, Soorah al-Ikhlaas, Soorah al-Falaq and
Soorah an-Naas, and seek refuge in Allaah. One should study the
ilm, to have strong firm knowledge so that the shaitan is not able
to fool them. One should also be devout and eager to learn the ilm,
not listen to their whispers to keep people away and make them averse
and angry to the beneficial knowledge. The antidote to these whispers
of the jinns is the ilm.

Jinns can be “exorcised” from people that they possess by imams
knowledgable in the procedure. See the article :


How to perform an exorcism, removing the jinn from
a person that becomes possessed.

One of the proofs the ulema use is that ayat in surah Baqarah:

{ ٱلَّذِينَ يَأۡڪُلُونَ ٱلرِّبَوٰاْ لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ ٱلَّذِى يَتَخَبَّطُهُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ مِنَ ٱلۡمَسِّ‌ۚ }

“Those that eat interest do not stand except like one that the
shaitan has touched (possessed).” Surah Baqarah ayat 275.

And Allah knows
