Jinn is among God's creatures which is created from fire unlike man. Breathing God's spirit to mud that resulted man creation, made such greatness which naturally and developmentally has superiority on jinn. Jinn, like man has responsibility, punishment, resurrection. Some of them are believers and some are unbelievers. They have the ability to do hard and extraordinary activities which man don’t. They are visible to some mankind like prophets and were forced to do hard work by them. They are able to get several shapes. They are able to do magic, sorcery and create division among man but they cannot do anything without God’s will. They have off springs and descendant but their gender and their reproduction and generation are not clear. In this article, it is tried to discuss its gender, creation and abilities with elaborating approach. Since jinn is not a topic which is discussable academically and logically, therefore the main topics of the article is based on Qur'an, accurate Hadith and vision of interpreters which are more complete.
