Can jinns take things from your house, even insignificant things that you don't want just to cause confusion? If they wanted to misguide people could they move images/idols?
It has been prescribed in Islamic mythology that the genie can in fact move things. They call this Genie, the Ifreet. While from my studies the a-hadith and Quran do not mention this specifically, it has been suggested by some that the jinn has the power to move things.
Consider the jinn or genie of Solomon, who as a prophet commanded the moving of the throne from one location to the next via the genie. This though, is in the Quran.
Yes, indeed they can do a lot than just moving things in a house. There is not much in Quran about Jinns doing such things but if you go through the story of Hazrat Sulaeman (A.S) then you may clearly get all your answers.
Also, thousands of people have witnessed such stuff from time to time, and I firmly people in it because I have too seen a lot of these things.
