"And We have guarded it (the heavens) from every accursed devil, except one who is able to snatch a hearing and he is pursued by a brightly burning flame" (Quran 15:17-18).
The Prophet also said: "They (the Jinn) would pass the information back down until it reaches the lips of a magician or fortune-teller. Sometimes a meteor would overtake them before they could pass it on. If they passed it on before being struck, they would add to it a hundred lies" (Saheeh Al-Bukhari). Thus, it is clear from this as to how fortune-tellers get predictions of the future sometimes right. It is also evident as to why they get so many wrong. Men like Nostradamus are an example, as some of his predictions of the future were correct whilst many were completely wrong. Unfortunately, the amount of fortune telling that occurs amongst the Muslims is also increasing. By visiting Muslim lands such as Morocco, one is able to see how much inter Jinn-fortune-teller activity there really is. If you look up at the sky on a clear night in Morocco, you will see the heavens ablaze with shooting stars! A clear display of the devils being chased away from the heavens.
Fortune-tellers also operate through the Qareen. The Qareen is the Jinn companion that is assigned to every human being. It is this Jinn that whispers to our base desires and constantly tries to divert us from righteousness. The Prophet said: "Every one of you has been assigned a companion from the Jinn. The companions asked: Even you O' Messenger of God? And the Prophet replied: Even me, except that God has helped me against him and he has become a Muslim. Now he only tells me to do good" (Saheeh Muslim). Because the Qareen is with a person all his life, it knows all that has happened to the person from the cradle to the grave. By making contact with the Qareen, the fortune-teller is thus able to make out that it is he who knows about the person. He looks in his crystal ball or the palm of a person and proceeds to amaze him with knowledge that no one else knows. The severity of going to a fortune-teller is such that the Prophet said: "The prayer of one who approaches a fortune-teller and asks him about anything, will not be accepted for forty days or nights" (Saheeh Muslim) and: "Whosoever approaches a fortune-teller and believes in what he says, has disbelieved in what was revealed to Muhammad."
The effects of the Jinn are not just limited to fortune-tellers. Other activities such as Ouija boards and séances, which are used to contact the dead, are manipulated by the Jinn. "Are you there Charlie? Speak to us Charlie!!" are the sort of words spoken by anxious relatives (names are obviously different!) seeking to make contact with their loved ones. And it is when the Jinn starts to talk and communicate as "Charlie" that the people are truly fooled.
One of the biggest manipulations of the Jinn is through visions. Through these visions the Jinn are more likely to lead people away from the worship of God then any other way. When a person sees a vision in front of his eyes it is something that is very hard to explain away. Only by having knowledge of the world of the Jinn and conviction in God, can a person fight such a trial. The countless numbers of visions of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary over the centuries has been a popular choice for the devils. It almost seems as if leading Christians astray is the easiest trick for the Jinn! Not only are Christians fooled by these visions, but often the Jinn possess and begin to talk from their voices. To the Christians this is known as the tongues of the Angels and thus a proof for their faith. However, the amount of unintelligible nonsense and rubbish that is heard is a clear proof that this is in fact the tongues of the devils! For other people, visions of their parents or relatives are commonplace. By taking on the form of people's parents, the Jinn can convince people that the souls of dead people still mix with the people of the earth. This is why so many people believe in ghosts.
The onslaught of satanic visions has also hit the Muslims. Many Muslims claim to have seen visions of the Prophet Muhammad and even God! By doing this, Satan is able to lead astray the weak Muslims. Through such visions, Muslims are often told that the commands of Islam are not applicable to them. The Jinn tell them that Prayer, Fasting, Hajj, etc., are not obligatory for them. It is a great deception and unfortunately one that has been very effective. The extent of satanic visions still continues to this day. The death of Diana Princess of Wales sparked off great love and adoration for this woman. In fact the grief of the British people was such that it was as if Diana was something divine. No sooner had the mourning of Diana reached its peak, that visions of her were already being seen at Hampton Court Palace! If these visions did occur, the desire of Satan and his army of Jinn to capitalize on this event was evident. Such visions are clear attempts by Satan to lead mankind away from the path of God.
