Allah has granted the jinnat with immense powers and an ability to move and travel quickly. Here is an incidence to prove their powers. A strong jinn had assured to the Prophet Sulaiman (Peace be upon him) that he would bring the throne of the Queen of Yemen to Jerusalem faster than the time that is needed for a man to get up from where he was sitting.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “An ‘ifreet or a strong one from amongst the jinnat said: ‘I will bring it (her throne) to you before you rise from your place (council). And verily, I am indeed strong, and trustworthy for such work.’ One of the jinnat who had the knowledge of the Scripture said: ‘I shall bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye’! Finally when Sulaiman saw it placed before him, he remarked, ‘this is by the Grace of my Lord…’” (al-Naml 27:39-40). This incidence proves that the jinnat are capable of doing tasks in a matter of second. This fact is mentioned in the Quran
The jinnat have been created from air and fire. Therefore, they are invisible to us. The flame has two parts, one being zulmani (invisible) and the other is noorani (which is invisible also). The jinnat have been created from the zulmani part. In jinnat the flame has changed into a latif or fine, specific form that can take any shape.
The jinnat are of two types: zahiri and batini. The zahiri jinnat can appear before human beings. The amils can hear the footsteps as they walk about. However, the batini are invisible. The jinnat are so robust that they can lift a human being and carry him to distant lands. I shall narrate some incidences related to the strength of jinnat in my next posts.
