In Islam, unseen beings called jinn(Ghosts) exist alongside humans. These fire-made creatures possess free will and can be good or bad. Jinn are generally invisible but can interact with our world. Like humans, they face choices between righteousness and wrongdoing, sometimes causing harm. While acknowledging jinn, Islam emphasizes faith in Allah and following Islamic principles. Though some jinn might be good or neutral, Islamic teachings recognize the potential for harm from malevolent ones. Protection measures include reciting Quranic verses, seeking refuge in Allah, practicing good hygiene, and following Islamic rituals.

Ultimately, trusting in Allah and reciting specific verses are seen as shields against harmful jinn intentions.
