In all cultures and epochs one finds the belief in Jinn in various forms. Sometimes they are called elementary spirits, sometimes fairies, sometimes demons, or even gods.
And on the day when He will gather them all together, He will say unto the angels: Did these worship you? They will say: Be Thou Glorified. Thou [alone] art our Guardian, not them! Nay, but they worshipped the Jinn; most of them were believers in them. [Saba 40-41]
Thus, if e.g. Buddhists pray in front of Buddha, they bow before the Jinn / devil who lives in the statue. In principle, therefore, they are doing what a sorcerer does, and are therefore enabled by Jinn to do "super-natural" things.
Take a look at what the Buddhist-Shaolin monks can do: For example, an iron rod is bent by pressure on the neck, without causing an injury, or a needle thrown through a glass wall. Scientifically "proven", because recorded by camera, but scientifically "explained"?
To this day, science has no explanation how structures such as Stonehenge or the statues on the Easter Islands were built. There are also no convincing theories about the pyramids, which is mainly due to the fact that no mass graves were found near the pyramids, but which should exist if they would have been built in a conventional way with an army of workers. If we exclude extraterrestrials as builders, only the Jinn remain.
Buddhists and Hindus believe in reincarnation. They take as proof, among other things, the way in which the Dalai Lama, the head of the Tibetans, is elected, or rather is found. He is regarded as tulku, an enlightened being that incarnates several hundred years (14 lives). Unlike ordinary people, he can choose the human in whom he reincarnates. The task of the other lamas is to find the child into which the Dalai Lama has incarnated. 2-3 years after the death of the Dalai Lama, the search begins.
In earlier years, the lamas traveled to the oracle lake Lhamo Lhatso, a holy place where a spirit (!) lives, called Palden Lhamo. There, the lamas meditated and saw in visions and dreams the place where they had to look for the new incarnation. At this place then, they put small objects of the old Dalai Lama (such as his robe, his eating bowl etc) in front of the children and mixed them with lots of other items, and the child who picked all the right items had to be the incarnation of the old Dalai Lama.
But apparently, not the old Dalai Lama did incarnate himself, but the Jinn who lived in him, and who beomes hundreds of years old!
If in Hawaii formerly somebody wanted to become king, he had to show that he could surf. A surfboard of about 5m lenght was carved from the Wili Wili tree. Before the tree got cut, however, one had to sacrifice a kumu fish at the roots of the tree to ask the gods for permission. Obviously, the Jinn who lived on the tree should be soothed. This kind of sacrifice or soothing of the ethereal beings who live on trees can be found in many cultures. In Islam it is sufficient to say "Bismillah" before the tree is cut.
How shamans and medical practitioners use Jinn for treatment, we had already mentioned in the preface. Christians also have "miracle healings" and even "Miracle Healing Crusades", where in large assemblies people are healed in series and shout "Hallelujah". The method is the same as that of the shamans and the exorcist of the Vatican: A commander of the Jinn, normally a powerful Ifrit, kicks out the Jinn in the body of the patient responsible for the illness, on which the patient recovers and praises Jesus who allegedly has healed him. Patient healed, but on the way to hell!
Just go to Lourdes and look at all the wheelchairs and crutches left standing! There, then, it is not Jesus who heals, but supposedly his mother. The little girl Bernadette Soubirous saw eighteen times the Virgin Mary in the grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes, and is said to have freed up with her own hands a spring whose water cures the sick. During these "cures", not only Jinn play a role, but of course also placebo / autosuggestion. Every year, this place is visited by six million pilgrims from all continents, who spend altogether 2.5 billion euros.
Yes, shirk has always been a good source of income, which is why the Quraish so vehemently rejected the teachings of Muhammad s.a.w., because he ruined their business. After all, the 350 gods in and around the Kaaba attracted pilgrims from all over Arabia and brought considerable wealth to the Quraish.
Who worships something other than Allāh, prays to taghut, thus ultimately Satan, and the devil who lives in these idols:
And make mention [O Muhammad] in the Scripture of Abraham. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet. When he said unto his father: O my father! Why worshippest thou that which heareth not nor seeth, nor can in aught avail thee? O my father! Serve not the devil. Lo! the devil is a rebel unto the Beneficent. [Maryam 41, 42, 44]
The gods, especially the sun god (behind whom Satan hides), always demanded human sacrifices:
- Mayas: Kulkulcan
- Babylon: Vul / Baal
- Romans: Volcan
- Egyptians: Osiris / Ra
- Greeks: Helios
- Aztecs: Tonatiuh
- Sumerians: Ea / Enki
- Assyrian: Shamash
- Hindus: Surya
- China: Tai-Yang-King
People, especially firstborn, were often sacrificed on what is now considered the symbol of mercy: the cross. And it is not surprising that under the sign of the cross more people died than under any other symbol.
The arrival of the cross in America on the sail of Columbus’ ship Santa Maria, announced the extermination of 4/5 of the indigenous population. The rest of the world shared a similar fate during half a millennium of colonization.
Half of Europe was exterminated in the 30-year war between Catholics and Protestants. A good part of the population fell victim to the Inquisition, and was not only murdered, but also gruesomely tortured. Likewise the crusades did not honor the alleged symbol of mercy, but revealed once again that the human sacrifice of God's alleged son was in fact Satan worship and nothing else!
Yet they ascribe as partners unto Him the Jinn, although He did create them, and impute falsely, without knowledge, sons and daughters unto Him. Glorified be He and High Exalted above [all] that they ascribe [unto Him]. [Al-Anam 100]
