Let's start our investigation one verse earlier in 27:38 Solomon addresses an assembly or some chiefs or commandants as the word al-mal' الملأ was also translated. And we have an idea of the constitution of this assembly: In Verse 27:17 we learn that this assembly was of human, jinn and/or birds. Verse 27:39 shows that the first to answer was a jinn. Of ...

Consider that this was Allah's (ﷻ) response to Pharaoh (Firown) when he "repented" after all his evil and the punishment overtook him: "Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters" - Qur'an 10:90-91. In the end, Pharaoh's repentence was not accepted. I imagine the same would be the case for Iblis if he 'repented.' Repenting when it is ...

There are a couple of scholars who rejected the Idea of Jinn controlling or taking possession of humans further than the Quran and sahih sunnah allows.

There are many Quranic verses and Ahadith that talk about "jinns", but none of them speaks about their languages, but from some Quranic verses we can deduct that they can speak and understand the human language قل أوحي إلي أنه استمع نفر من الجن فقالوا إنا سمعنا قرآنا عجبا Verse 1 from Surat "Al-JINN " Say (O Muhammad SAWW!): It has been revealed to me ...

No,we already know that angels are made up of light and jinns are made up of fire. The word 'everything' is according to the context of that verse.

Then he said I ate everything and nothing is left. ...

Based on verses 46:29 and 72:1, once some of the jinn were listening to the Prophet's(PBUH) recitation of Qur'an: وَإِذْ صَرَ‌فْنَا إِلَيْكَ نَفَرً‌ا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقُرْ‌آنَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُ‌وهُ قَالُوا أَنصِتُوا ۖ فَلَمَّا قُضِيَ وَلَّوْا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِم مُّنذِرِ‌ينَ And [mention, O Muhammad], when We directed to you a few of the jinn, ...

We would require very strong evidence to forbid you from reciting the quran in the night in a dark room. BUT if your parents have a problem with the dark room, you can always light it up more so that their hearts are at ease. Attacks from Satan If you do good, they will distract and attack you anyways. I would strongly disagree with anyone who restricts ...

Sura 7:179 states that And We have certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear. Those are like livestock; rather, they are more astray. It is they who are the heedless. This tells us that the jinn are ...

If you read the Arabic text of the verse you will find Allah has used the world "دابة" and not "مخلوق" and the difference is that Makhluq is as you wrote for literal meaning of creature, anything created and more precisely being created, but Daabbah denote only a category among all the creatures, that is, those that move, seemingly those that are animate! ...

If you ask will they come and slap us while we're alone, then I would say I'm not sure about it, if such incidents have ever occured. But if you ask will they cause us to slap ourselves then the answer is YES.

I can't help but point out that water is literally produced from fire: Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen.

The Qur'an also says: ...
