The jinn are usually invisible to humans, and humans do not appear clearly to them. Jinn have the power to travel large distances at extreme speeds and are thought to live in remote areas, mountains, seas, trees, and the air, in their own communities. Like humans, jinn will also be judged on the Day of Judgment and will be sent to Paradise or Hell according to their deeds.
A related belief is that every person is assigned one's own special jinn, also called a qarin, of the jinn and if the qarin is evil it could whisper to people's souls and tell them to submit to evil desires.
There is no lamp to rub, or wishes to be made. In the Muslim faith, the jinn are simply another being. Their ability to help or harm has nothing to do with a wish of fortune or folly. It only has to do with the jinn's will.
