Jinn in the pre-Islamic
Among archaeologists dealing with ancient Middle Eastern cultures, any spirit lower than the angels is often referred to as a genius, especially when describing stone carvings or other forms of art.

For disobedience to God, was expelled from Paradise and called "Satan" (Satan). Jinn is frequently mentioned in the Qur'an: Sura 72 (called Surat al-Jinn) is the name of genius, and has a step on them. Another surah (Surat Al-Nas) mentions the Jinn in the last verse.  The Qur'an also mentions that Muhammad was sent as a prophet to both "humanity and jinn, and that the prophets and messengers were sent to communities.
Like humans, jinn have free will that allows them to do what you choose (and follow any religion.) They are usually invisible to humans and humans do not appear clearly to them. Geniuses have the power to travel long distances at extreme speeds and is believed to live in remote areas, mountains, seas, trees, and the air in their own communities. Like humans, jinn also be judged on the Day of Judgement and will be sent to heaven or hell according to their works.
