Are Jinns bacteria according to Islam?



As'salamu Alaikum everyone,

I once read a (false?) hadith on the mouth of the Prophet, peace be upon him, where he said that the Jinns eat the dead bodies, and this is why they disappear after a few days.  The Jinn ate them.  The Prophet was asked about why dead bodies of creatures disappear.

Yet, the Glorious Quran Says that the Jinns were created from a smokeless fire:

[015:026]  And indeed, We created man from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud.
[015:027]  And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire.

‏15:26 ولقد خلقنا الانسان من صلصال من حمأ مسنون
‏15:27 والجان خلقناه من قبل من نار السموم

The problem with the false narrations from the hadiths collections is this, in my opinion:

1-  Somebody had an idea that he strongly believed in with a passion (ex: jinn eat dead bodies), and he lied on the Prophet to legitimize or give authority to his belief to make it a widely acceptable fact.  So in other words, with this lie, he would transform his opinion into a widely accepted fact.

2-  Gossips from unknown sources made their way with fabricated chain or narrations into the hadiths.

3-  Islam-hating liars and hypocrites injecting poisons into Islam. Examples:

(a)-  The Prophet got bewitched by a Jew who stole a piece of his hair, sneezed on it, and hid it under a rock.
(b)-  Aisha used to have her nieces and sisters breast-feed men so they would enter her house and have private sessions with her.
(c)-  She-monkey stoning by other monkeys for adultery.
(d)-  The dajjal was found chained in one Island.  None of the Islands of the Middle East have any chained dajjal in them.

And on and on and on....  Visit:

Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother MuslimBoy,

The Holy Quran doesn't support that Jinn feeds on the dead bodies.  Angels and Jinns and Word-Creations, and Holy-Spirit-Creations are all invisible Beings.  They are created from smokeless fire, ligh, the Word and the Holy Spirit.  They are not flesh and blood dust and water like us.  Bacteria belongs to our world.  We can see it and we can even terminate it.  You do this everyday when you wash with soap, shampoo, and use hand sanitizer, and also use detergents for bathroom and kitchen cleaning.  We can't do that with Jinns.  They are from an entirely different realm.  Plus, the Egyptians have already mastered 1000s of years ago the science of body preservation after death.  It's ridiculous to say that the Jinns are too weak to devour those.  There is even a Great Scientific Miracle on this regarding Allah Almighty Promising Pharaoh to preserve his body after drowning to make him a Sign for all of mankind.  Pharaoh's body was confirmed to have drowned only recently; less than 30 years ago.  Please visit:

Quite honestly, I don't care even if the Prophet himself said it and was wrong.  There are instances where the Prophet made wrong decisions.  I don't worship him.  Salafies and Wahabies and others have cult-like minds.  Many of them I personally consider cults, like the shia cults.  They don't represent Islam, nor do they really even know Islam.  Just brainless robots repeating after ignorant teachers.  The worst part is that you'll get cultists from these bark at you and call you heretic and even an apostate when they themselves are ignorant.  I had a barking cultist of this kind bark at me, and when I told him about the false narrations where Aisha, for example, is said to used to have GROWN MEN suck her nieces and sisters' breasts to enable her to have private sessions with them, the dumb cultist didn't even know of such narrations' existence.

The hadiths are secondary to me.  I only use them to explain the Holy Quran.  That's it.  The Holy Quran is my one and only True Source.  Anything that doesn't agree with It belongs to the garbage.  After all, Allah Almighty called the Holy Quran AL-MUHAYMIN (the dominant Book with the Highest Authority).  For ample more on this point, visit:

So the barking cultists aside, this is where I stand on the Hadiths.  They have jaw dropping Miracles and Prophecies in them, and they also have garbage and lies in them.  Exactly like the Bible!  You can't dismiss all of it as falsehood.  But at the same time, you can't accept all of it as Divine Truth either.
