The jinn are NOT fallen angels. They were created from a smokeless flame of fire. The first recorded jinn to be disobedient is Iblis. Disbelieving, disobedient jinn and humans are known as shayateen (satans). The Noble Qur'an - Ar-Rahmaan 55:15, 15 He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery. And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire. The Noble Qur'an - Al-Hijr 15:26-42 26. And indeed, We created man from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. 27. And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire. 28. And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. 29. "So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating yourselves unto him." 30. So, the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together. 31. Except Ibl?s (Satan), - he refused to be among the prostrators. 32. (All?h) said: "O Ibl?s (Satan)! What is your reason for not being among the prostrators?" 33. [Ibl?s (Satan)] said: "I am not the one to prostrate myself to a human being, whom You created from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud." 34. (All?h) said: "Then, get out from here, for verily, you are Raj?m (an outcast or a cursed one)." [Tafs?r At-Tabar?] 35. "And verily, the curse shall be upon you till the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)." 36. [Ibl?s (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected." 37. All?h said: "Then, verily, you are of those reprieved, 38. "Till the Day of the time appointed." 39. [Ibl?s (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Because you misled me, I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. 40. "Except Your chosen, (guided) slaves among them." 41. (All?h) said: "This is the Way which will lead straight to Me." 42. "Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Gh?w?n (Mushrik?n and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers, etc).
