I'm really interested in Jinn (how they're made of fire and stuff, I love science), but I'm also religious so I don't have any intention of asking favors or anything, just to talk and be friends. It would be nice to interact with another intelligent species. I preferably want to communicate with a Muslim jinn, if there's any way to find one?
The Qur'an tells us that there are indeed some Jinn's that are believers. But I wonder if we can even meet Jinn and contact them first to be able to find a Muslim one. This sounds weird and rather unrealistic. The Qur'an in fact tells as the origin of Jinn and that they are with or around us, but there's no clue in it on how one might be able to contact them. Nevertheless believers among them may like to listen to a Qur'an recitation. But do we have any certainty about their real intention? ... the Qur'an in fact seems to show us that we can hardly trust them as they know as better than we know them, they can see us while we can't and maybe there are hypocrites among them -assuming they are similar to us in matter of belief-.
Based on the quran verse and more explicitly on the marked part:
O children of Adam, let not Satan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies to those who do not believe. (7:27)
Sheikh ibn Bazz concluded in this is fatwa -in Arabic- that one is not allowed to be friends with Jinn due to the simple fact that one cannot trust them, they might pretend being Muslims for example, and that the general case is that we are not able to see them. Nevertheless it is allowed to ask Allah to guide them etc. but one shouldn't fully trust them.
Allah also says:
And among us are the righteous, and among us are [others] not so; we were [of] divided ways. (72:11)
Which has been taken as a basis to allow such a friendship if it leads to good (their guidance or to use them for good deeds etc.) in this fatwa on islamweb #35055-in Arabic-.
If you want friendship with muslim jinn then recite surah jinn every day along with surah baqarah at home. Then do tahajud and ask Allah.. you should do it more than 3 months. And see the results
