Jinn (الجن‎‎) are supernatural creatures in early Arabian and later Islamic mythology and theology. An individual member of the jinn is known as a jinni (الجني). They are mentioned frequently in the Qur'an (the 72nd sura is titled surah al-Jinn) and other Islamic texts. The Qur'an says that the jinn were created from a smokeless and "scorching fire", but are also physical in nature, being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and likewise be acted upon. The jinn, humans and angels make up the three known sapient creations of God. Like human beings, the jinn can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent and hence have free will like humans.
