The Jinn Vs The Cold

The Jinns (Devils) fear the cold just as humans fear the fire! – An excellent method to ward off evil spirits and attacks.

In section [11] al-Dabbagh says: ‘A Jinnee (Jinn) in Hell isn’t punished in burning fire because fire is his nature and causes him no harm. Instead, he’s punished in severe frost (zamharfr) and cold. And in the world the Jinn have a great fear of the cold.’ In the summer you see the Jinn in the air being fearful that a cold breeze will blow. They’re ready to take flight from the cold like a wild onager. As for water, the Jinn and the satans never enter it. Should they do so, they’d entirely dissolve, the way a human being dissolves in fire. The Jinnee’s form resembles the shapes you see in the dark flames and coiling smoke of a potter’s fire.

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.

Assalamu Alaikum,

“A Jinnee (Jinn) in Hell isn’t punished in burning fire because fire is his nature and causes him no harm”

it is like saying that a human being cannot be punished by earth. You can surely hurl rocks at me and hurt me very badly or even kill me.


fair point. but lets say you were to remove the element of death surely over time the stones and rock thrown at you would have no effect as your body would become used to it.


Good point Masha Allah…. but the evidence that we have from the Qur’an and the Sunnah of prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam is that we won’t become resistant to fire even if we burn for the next 300 billion years or more in hell(May Allah save us from a disastrous ending) …. It will be just as unbearable as day 1.

I’m quite sure that I’m wrong in my view because the original comment came from somebody of very high knowledge.

The removal of the element of death is to remove any possibility of being saved by death again. It will be a situation of total hopelessness and humiliation on top of the unbearable punishment. May Allah save us.
