In case of being the Muslim jins, are they divided in Sunni and Shia like Muslims?

Note: I am looking for authentic ahadith.

    -1 there is no sunni or shia at the time of prophet. – suhailvs Aug 2 '14 at 3:13
  • Dear suhail, you say there was no sunni or shia at the time of the prophet? So, if you say it, then why at the moment there are Shia and Sunni people? (so according to your speech, there was not Sunni and Shia at the time of the prophet?! – اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد Aug 2 '14 at 13:55

    There are all kinds of aqeedah among the jinns, just as there are among humans. So there are Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and so on among them. So I guess even the various sects of Islam must be reflected among them. – Najeeb Aug 2 '14 at 14:07
  • @Najeeb, yeah, I agree with you, it is a rational answer, Since as far as I know, jins have option like us, accordingly they could have different religion. – اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد Aug 2 '14 at 15:44
  • This question might sound bizarre, but I have personally heard about jinns who had pleaded allegiance to Prophet's Ahlulbayt and this does find reference in Shiite hadith sources. That might explain the relevance of the question to Islam. – infatuated Aug 2 '14 at 18:34

I just want to know, what is the use of asking such a question? Even if you found out the answer what will you do with it?

Also the Question You ask, has a problem with it.

You are asking for Ahadith to prove if Jin are Shia or Sunni. But you must remember, in the time of Prophet there was no sect known as Shia and Sunni... So how can there be hadith from Prophet (PBUH) about Shia, Sunni????

It was many years after, that people started studying deeply into Islamic Studies that sects started to emerge.

Right now we have 5 main madhabs of Islam. 4 Sunni (Hanafi, Maliki, Sha'fi, Hanbali) and 1 Shia (Ja'fri)

Interestingly all the imams; Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Sha'fi, Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal were the students of Imam Jafar as Sadiq. (Who is the great grandson of the Prophet)..

(Note: This question cannot be answered because it is problematic.)

  • Shia is Not from the Ja'fri Madhab do a deep study otherwise they will also be considered as sunni and considered among the 5th madhab why all others scholars are considered as sunni. Imam jafar never gone against the companion of prophets decisions. – Ali786 Aug 2 '14 at 5:41

    @Ali, you said: "if you found out the answer what will you do with it?!" Oh, If you think like that, then I reckon you should say it for most questions of this site that "if you found out the answer what will you do with it?!" , – اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد Aug 2 '14 at 14:05

    @Ali, you likewise said that" .. how can be hadith from the Prophet(PBUH) about Shia, Sunni????" So, I Did not say if there is any hadith from the prophet, I inquired is there any authentic ahadith? (e.g. from Imams ..). anyhow God bless you (since anyway it is very nice of you that paid attention to my question) – اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد Aug 2 '14 at 14:10
  • @Salamislam .. Salaam Dear Brother ! Oh I see where you were coming from. Yes Hadith from the Imam alhehimusalaam... no dear brother, I do not know of any such. Forgive me if I sounded arrogant or disrespectful... I did not have such an intention. – Andre Aug 2 '14 at 17:35
