I've been talking to a relatively well-educated friend who lives in Morocco as well as reading some books on the subject.

While it is especially pronounced in countries like Morocco, the vast majority of those who live in what are commonly called "Islamic States" believe that the world is actively inhabited by jinn.

In the same way that 90% of westerners believe a devil exists somewhere in a place called hell, 90% of those in Islamic countries (not just Muslims since jinn are pre-islamic in origin) believe their day-to-day activities are influenced by their relationship with various jinn living around or inside them.

It doesn't matter what the level of education is. Jinn are considered as real as dogs or cats. The difference is jinn are either invisible to us or only manifest themselves to us in the forms of others or through possession.

Jinn are mortal, procreate with each other, have societies, have emotions, etc. One of them was elevated to the rank of angels, but he refused to bow to Adam and was cast back down as the king of all jinn.

Again, it's not like there's a lot of people who believe ghosts might exist and a few who claim to have seen/experience ghosts.

We're talking everyday experience of millions of people. Regardless of education level.

"day-to-day activities are influenced by their relationship with various jinn living around or inside them."

This is exaggeration. Some people are obsessed with the wold of Jinn, but most people (including religious people) don't think of Jinns on a daily basis.

And the Jinny (one Jinn) that refused to bow to Adam (our common father) is called Iblis and he is a Satan (disbeliever, wrong doer).

Jinns can be of any faith, and they are accountable before God like ourselves. They are mentioned in the Quran and in the authentic islamic prophetic tradition, each individual amongst people has his associate ( or counterpart) from the Jinns. the person may never be aware of it.

If you don't mind me asking, do you live in or have you lived in an Islamic country?
