Are the Ancient Supernatural Djinn Reclaiming the Earth?
With reports of nightly visitations and assaults by shadow people on the rise, who, or what could be behind these strange and sometimes terrifying supernatural encounters? There are researchers and scholars today who believe that a faction of the supernatural race known as the Djinn are responsible. It is also believed that this evil faction is motivated by revenge and that they are seeking to restore their dominance over the Earth.
The History of The Djinn
The Arabic word Jinn, also romanized as djinn, is from the verb 'Janna' which means to hide or conceal. The Djinn are intelligent spirits with a sorted history of uprising, banishment and demonic behaviors. The first stories of the Djinn emerged from early Arabian culture and were later adopted by Islamic theology. Also known as Jinn or Genies, The Djinn is a lower rank of angels that can appear in humanoid, shadow and animal forms and are able to possess humans.
The Djinn were without original form, they were spiritual beings made from a scorching, smokeless fire, that in today's terms would probably be described as a type of plasma. It is said that the djinn are masterful shape-shifters, with the ability to choose any form they like. In Islamic belief, djinn are often associated with the forms of human shaped shadows, snakes and dogs.
According to legend, the Djinn inhabited the earth before mankind, approximately 2000 years prior to the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Originally they were equal to angels in stature. When God created Adam, he told the angels to bow to him and the angels respected this request. But the leader of the Djinn, a spirit known as Iblis (also known as Shaytan), refused and proclaimed he would not bow to a being that was inferior to his own race.
As a result of his refusal Iblis and the rest of the Djinn were cast out of paradise, banished to another dimensional realm. Iblis appealed and the Djinn were given the opportunity to redeem themselves by Judgment Day. From this day forward he became a figure comparable to the Devil (Satan). His evil-minded followers were then called devils, and they behaved in ways similar to Western demons.
However, the Djinn were believed to have free will so some of them were not evil followers of Iblis. Rather, they were good spirits. It is believed that the Djinn lead lives with families similar to humans.
The Wrath of The Djinn
Adding to the mystery and intimidation of the Djinn is their ability to shape-shift into a variety of forms. Originally they were described as plasma-like beings made from scorching smokeless fire. In Islamic belief, the Djinn are often associated with forms of human shadows, snakes and dogs.
Many scholars and researchers have suggested the Djinn are inter-dimensional beings that are able to traverse time and space. They enter our reality from the world of the unseen through inter-dimensional gateways and portals. And these channels may allow them to menacingly infiltrate homes and bedrooms across the globe to frighten people beyond their wildest nightmares.
Recent research has connected the Djinn with the shadow people phenomenon. It is believed that these non-material predators are the culprits behind the terrifying visitations that many people experience each night worldwide. It has been suggested that some of the more hostile Djinn are taking these shadowy forms in an attempt to terrorize mankind as payback for taking their place on the planet.
The most evil types of Djinn listed below are said to be responsible for a large number of possessions and evil manifestations that have been reported over the centuries:
The ‘ifrit (variation: afrit) is cited only once in the Qur’an and is an evil and powerful Djinni that is difficult to control.
The shaitan (shaytan) is a rebellious, malevolent Djinni associated with demonic forces.
The marid is unruly and rebellious, and the most powerful of Djinn. Their great knowledge of magic has assisted kings and priests over the years. They are also known as “blue” Djinn and are the ones most often associated with wish-granting genies.
The nasnas are half-human, half-animal monstrous beasts created by wizards and priest to guard their strongholds. Although they only have one leg, they are quite able-bodied and can scare anyone from miles away with their blood-curdling screeches.
Are the Djinn attempting to reclaim dominion over the Earth and insert their evil ways into our reality? And are the Djinns what we’ve come to know as shadow people, lurking in the darkness, actualizing our deepest fears and greatest nightmares?
For many people, the threat of the Djinn is real. They believe ancient beings roamed this earth long before mankind ever set foot on this planet. And if we keep our heads buried in the sand they will without a doubt take it back.
