Yes and no!
Spirits in magic lamps or possessing humans, no.
Jinns as a generic name for nomads or people not usually seen, yes.
Jinns as universal forces, gravity, radiation, etc. yes.
I will re-post my article on Jinn if you missed it the before, titled Aladdin and his Jinn:-

Dear bhai, the following is an article I wrote some time ago regarding Jinns which you may find helpful. I and many others do not believe in invisible creatures that can possess people, trees or that live in magic lamps! These beliefs and understandings come from our ancestors and need reviewing.
It contains some sarcastic and derogatory statements but is not meant to offend, just enlighten.

Jinn

Prepare yourself, take a deep breath and read carefully what I am going to reveal.
If you are one of those that believe that there are magical, invisible creatures that are able to move in and out of our world and inflict evil upon us then you are living in falsehood and self deceit. The “demon” meaning of Jinn is based on Arabic folklore and was prevalent in the pre-Islamic period. Any hadith that talk about Jinns in this context can only be attributed to the false beliefs of ignorant people and should not be associated with our beloved Prophet who knew right from wrong which he learnt from the Quranic Revelation. A recent Saudi newspaper article had a palm tree being unable to be pulled out of the ground by even the biggest tractors they could find in Saudi Arabia. It was left alone when a great “Islamic scholar” said that it was inhabited by Jinn and should not be touched or else they would curse anyone trying to remove their “home”! The pre-Islamic era of ignorance has not left us, brothers and sisters; it is still being promulgated by the people who are supposed to know better and believed by the indoctrinated and beguiled sheep that follow them. Read the following:-

From Talmud and Midrash. (2008). Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopaedia Britannica 2008 Ultimate Reference Suite. Chicago: Encyclopædia Britannica.
Astrology was a recognized science in the ancient world. The rabbis could not reject it entirely, and some concluded that the power of the stars is confined to Gentiles. Others made it part of God's order, saying that stars influence this world in the same way that climate influences plants. The rabbis strenuously objected to omens and other forms of divination because they considered them magic. Dreams were considered by some rabbis as meaningless, while others saw in them an element of prophecy.

The rabbis believed in the efficacy of magic but strenuously objected to its practice. They permitted only magic that had been proved effective in healing. They also permitted the use of incantations for the purpose of counteracting the hold of magic. Because of their supposedly protective nature, the use of amulets was also countenanced.
The existence of a demonic kingdom was accepted by the rabbis without question. Evil spirits are invisible and fill the nether world. They avoid sunlight and concentrate in waters and deserted places. They also mingle with people, trouble them, and help them. They have passions and are born and die like people. However, they also have some of the traits and powers of angels. The evil eye was considered as dangerous as evil spirits. It was thought that for mysterious reasons some people have the power to injure others by looking at them and that it is generally jealousy that triggers this effect. The rabbis, however, repeatedly emphasized that all of these strange powers are under the divine government and, moreover, that they cannot hurt the pious.

Does this look like your beliefs? Rabbis and Mullahs know best, leave it to them to lead us to Jannah and ignore Allah’s Word in the Quran!

During the “Dark Ages” of medieval Europe many strange and wonderful creatures were believed to exist and these included; something with a human body but no head and its face in its chest; a creature with such a huge foot it could act as an umbrella when it was lying on its back; and a creature called a “dog head” (a human body but a head that was a dogs) that Christian clergy debated over whether they should teach the Gospel to since they wore clothes and hence had a sense of shame. When travellers went into far off they were shocked not to find them and realised how ignorance is a powerful tool in propagating superstition. Just like the “Emperors New Clothes”, we Muslims believe in fairy tale Jinn stories and demon possession that have no base in the real world.

The only “Jinn” that take over certain people are the false ideas put into their heads by others!
When the word Jinn is used, in whatever form, it must be understood that this is a generic term and must be taken in the context it was written and not as representing a mystical being. To elaborate on this we can look at the root verb of Jinn which comes from janna and its meaning can be understood from the following verses of the Quran:-
Surah 6 verses 75-76

6:75 And to this end, We gave Abraham insight into the Mighty Dominion of the Universe so that he might attain firm conviction.
6:76 (Some of his people were idolaters and others were Nature-worshipers.) One night when it grew dark upon him he saw a planet (Venus). Abraham exclaimed to them, “This is my Lord!” But when it went down, he said, “I do not love things that go down.”

“One night when it grew dark” gives us the meaning that janna is that thing which is concealed from our senses. We cannot see something but it does not mean it is not there; we feel heat but we cannot “see” it, we are held down by gravity, etc. So anything that we do not ordinarily see, what is hidden, concealed and that which our senses cannot perceive is a Jinn. You are probably still struggling to come to terms with this since you have a mental “picture” of a Jinn, but if you try to put these new definitions into the verses of the Quran that contain the word Jinn you will begin to see how gullible you have been. To make it easy let us see some of these verses of the Quran where the word has been used where “beings” could be construed:-

Surah 46 verses 29-32. Yusuf Ali translation:- Behold, We turned towards you a company of Jinns (quietly) listening to the Quran: when they stood in the presence thereof, they said, "Listen in silence!" When the (reading) was finished, they returned to their people, to warn (them of their sins). They said, "O our people! We have heard a Book revealed after Moses, confirming what came before it: it guides (men) to the Truth and to a Straight Path. "O our people, hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah, and believe in him: He will forgive you your faults, and deliver you from a grievous penalty. "If any do not hearken to the one who invites (us) to Allah, he cannot frustrate ((Allah)'s Plan) on earth, and no protectors can he have besides Allah, such men (wander) in manifest error."
The above verses relate to a “people” that attended one of the Prophet’s lectures on the Quran and they sat in silence while he was speaking. They went back to their people and announced that they had heard a new Revelation which had not been revealed since Moses. Why Moses? Because this reference tells us that they were Jews who lived in Arabia. This is explained in more detail in “The Message of the Quran” by Mohammad Asad who gives the historical references for this meaning. But why describe these Jews as “Jinn”? The answer is simply that there were many nomadic tribes who stayed in their own communities and very rarely interacted with others. They were “hidden” from normal view so they are described as Jinn to denote their seclusion. They were not invisible creatures but reclusive people.

Dr Shabir
46:29 (O Messenger) Indeed, We turned toward you a company of the nomads so that they might listen to the Qur’an. And as soon as they were in its presence, they said, “Listen in silence!” And when it was over, they hurried to their people as warners! [72:1]
46:30 They said, “O Our people! Indeed, We have heard a Scripture that has been revealed after Moses, confirming the (Truth in) what came before it. It guides to the Truth and to a Straight Road."
[For my interpolation of ‘Truth in’, see 2:101. These nomads were obviously followers of the Jewish faith since they make no mention of Jesus]
46:31 "O Our people! Respond to the one who invites to God and believe in Him. He will absolve your fault of trailing behind and guard you against an awful suffering.”
46:32 "And whoever fails to respond to God’s caller, cannot evade Him on earth, nor can he find patrons other than Him. Such people are obviously lost in error."

This can also be seen from:-

Surah 72 verses 1-4 Yusuf Ali Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Quran). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital! 'It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord. 'And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son. 'There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah
Again the context of the verses shows us most clearly who were the Jinns spoken about here. Allah not having a wife and son can only refer to the Christians who hold the false belief that Jesus was an “only son of God” and Mary (Miriam) being the Mother of God, or wife of God, or any other such nonsense!!!! These beliefs are uttered as lies against Allah and are condemned in the Quran as such. Again, the Christians were in a minority in Arabia at that time and were described as Jinns to show their living away from mainstream society. I hope you are beginning to see that you should be giving every aspect of your beliefs the right sort of thought and consideration, you should ponder and deduce through reason and logic, not blind following of our ancestors and scholars.

Dr Shabbir
72:1 Say (O Prophet) It has been revealed to me that a tribe of nomads listened, and then they said, “Indeed, we have heard a marvelous Recital. [46:29]
72:2 It shows the way to Enlightenment, so we have come to believe in it. And we shall never again ascribe a partner unto our Lord.
72:3 And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord. He has taken neither a wife, nor a son.
72:4 The foolish among us uttered such outrageous lies about God.
Solomon and Jinns

Surah 27 verses 17. Yusuf Ali And Solomon was David's heir. He said: "O you people! We have been taught the speech of birds and on us has been bestowed (a little) of all things: this is indeed Grace manifest (from Allah.)" And before Solomon were marshalled his hosts, of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks
Here Solomon is described as having control over Jinns and Inns (men) and birds. The use of pigeons to send messages over long distances has been used by others in history as well. It is also possible to train a bird to hunt for you and to act according to a few basic commands, such as a whistle will bring it to your arm. This one meaning is what could be understood when Solomon and his people were “taught” the speech of birds and not that he croaked with the Ravens!
But, the Arabic word “tair” not only has the meaning bird, but also horse cavalry so a completely different understanding can be found from just thinking a little deeper. Likewise, from our understanding of Jinns mentioned above, we can look at who these Jinns were attached to Solomon? From the next Surah we can see who these “people” were who came under the rule of Solomon:-

Surah 21 verse 79-82. To Solomon We inspired the (right) understanding of the matter: to each (of them) We gave Judgment and Knowledge; it was Our power that made the hills and the birds celebrate Our praises, with David: it was We Who did (all these things). It was We Who taught him the making of coats of mail for your benefit, to guard you from each other's violence: will you then be grateful? (It was Our power that made) the violent (unruly) wind flow (tamely) for Solomon, to his order, to the land which We had blessed: for We do know all things. And of the evil ones, were some who dived for him, and did other work besides; and it was We Who guarded them.
Solomon had divers working for him, gathering food from the sea as well as pearls etc. They did other works such as constructing buildings and so we can see that they were normal humans who were united under the just rule of Solomon. The evil ones refer to barbaric tribes who turned to Allah and helped create a great nation. Nowhere does the Bible describe Solomon as having magical creatures at his disposal and any Jew would be laughing at us if we attributed such nonsense to one of their Prophets (as well as all mankind’s, including us Muslims)

Dr Shabbir
21:79 We gave Solomon great understanding of the affairs of the state, and each of them We endowed with wisdom and knowledge. It was Our Power that made the tribal leaders (loyal to David so that they could) strive to manifest Our Glory as did the horse riders of the strong Tribe of At-Taeer. It is We Who did all these things.
[Jibaal = Mountains = The elite = Top leadership. At-Taeer = The birds = The ‘flying’ horsemen = A Tribe in Syria-Palestine with excellent cavalry. ‘We did’ = We made it possible]
21:80 We taught him the science of armor to protect you from each other’s foolhardy violence. Are you then thankful? [David was the first one to master iron technology and later generations benefited from it. Therefore, ‘to protect you’]
21:81 We made the gusting winds subservient to Solomon as his ships sailed to the land We had blessed. And of everything We are Aware. [When people discover some of Divine Laws, they call it Science, and Solomon made good use of it]
21:82 We humbled the most rebellious tribes, and made them compliant to him. Some of them dived for him in the sea and carried out other duties, besides. But it was We Who kept watch over them. [We were for them, and are for you, the Guardians of the Laws of governance and science 34:13, 38:37]
Jinn, as stated, is a term used for those things which are unseen. The Pre-Islamic Arabs used the term for nomadic, mountain dwellers as well as for any non-city dwelling peoples. They knew this meaning and they were not a separate race of beings, the Quran contains no reference to them in this context nor to any Jinn being born when we “humans” are born who then try to entice us away from Allah! Surah 72 is called “Jinn” and if you read it with the view of normal human beings then the fantastic, magical Jinn concept is dispelled.

Dr Shabbir
Surah 72. Al-Jinn – The Unseen Beings
[Author’s Note] This is the 72nd Surah of the Qur’an. It has 28 verses. The term ‘Jinn’ is often misunderstood. It is supposed that they are unseen fiery creatures that live on earth and in the atmosphere and that they can possess people. The Qur’an does not condone the existence of any such thing as ‘demons’. And there is a reported saying of the exalted Prophet, “La Ghoul” = There is no such thing as ghoul, demons, Dracula, vampires, fairies, witches and wizards etc. All such things fall into the domain of superstition.
“And the Jinns He has created from a confused flame of fire (with a fiery disposition 55:15).
[References to Jinns: 2:102,6:76, 6:100, 6:112, 6:128-130, 7:12, 7:38, 8:27, 11:119, 15:17, 15:27, 21:82, 32:13, 34:12-14, 37:158, 38:76, 46:29-32, 55:15, 72:1-15, 75:2-6, 114:6 Jinn, in fact, implies something hidden, rarely seen. Hence, after using Tasreef, Al-Jinn = The nomads. Jannah from the same root means a garden hidden in foliage. When the Jinns or nomads move to dwell in towns and become civilized, they are referred to as Ins = Urbanites.

Among the verses referred to above, Jinn, at times, denotes the hidden evil prompting that goes on in the human mind. In the sense of flashes of evil prompting, Jinn can be understood as Satan in minor forms. Satan = Selfish or rebellious desire, works in concert with evil emotions which have been described as being fiery in the Jahilyah poetry. 'Emotions being fiery' stands up to reason.
Verse 21:37 convincingly shows what the ‘creation of Jinn out of fire’ actually means. Using exactly the same terms ‘khuliq’ and ‘min’ it states “KHULIQAL insanu MIN ‘ajal”. Literally that would translate as: He created man out of haste. Whereas the clear understanding is: Man has been created with a tendency to be hasty and looking for instant gains or results.

Such is the case with, “KHULAQAL jaanna MIN marijin MIN naar”. He created the nomads with a fiery disposition.
This Surah beautifully illustrates another very important point. Wherever in the Qur’an we come across the utterance or behavior of people that is not condemned by other verses, it stands confirmed by God as right and truthful]
With the Glorious Name of Allah, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness
72:1 Say (O Prophet) It has been revealed to me that a tribe of nomads listened, and then they said, “Indeed, we have heard a marvelous Recital. [46:29]
72:2 It shows the way to Enlightenment, so we have come to believe in it. And we shall never again ascribe a partner unto our Lord.
72:3 And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord. He has taken neither a wife, nor a son.
72:4 The foolish among us uttered such outrageous lies about God.
72:5 And behold, we used to think that people, whether civilized or uncivilized, would never utter a lie about God.
72:6 And, indeed some people of towns used to seek shelter with some of the nomads and increased them in confusion.
72:7 And they thought as you nomads thought that God would never again send
forth anyone. (As His Messenger, and so, the claimants of the occult sciences
would carry on with their deceptions.)
72:8 And we tried to feel the heaven but found it well attended by mighty guards
and flames." [The shining knowledge in the Qur’an dismisses all conjecture of the
astrologers, fortune-tellers, and other claimants of occult sciences]
72:9 (The nomads continued), “And we used to sit on places listening to
the 'heavenly news'. But now whoever listens will find a flame waiting for him.
[The brilliant flame of Divine Revelation is now ready to torch the
conjecture of the astrologers. 37:6-9, 67:5]
72:10 And we know not whether harm is intended for the inhabitants of the earth, or whether their Lord wills for them Enlightenment." [It remains to be seen how people will react to this revolutionary Message]
72:11 (The nomads continued their conversation), “And some of us are righteous and others are far from that, and we follow varying paths.
72:12 We know that wherever we are on earth, we cannot defy God, nor can we flee to escape.
72:13 And as soon as we heard the Enlightenment, we believed in it. And whoever chooses to be graced with belief in his Lord, need not fear a diminished return, nor unfairness.
72:14 And some of us have submitted (to God) while there are others who are taking a middle course. And whoever submits – such are they who have resolved to get enlightened.
72:15 And those who maintain a middle course (between the right and wrong); they are but fire-wood for the Hell."
72:16 (Such was their conversation.) Now, if they take an unwavering stand on the Highest Discipline, We will shower them with abundant bounties.
[Tareeqah = Layer upon layer arranged in great harmony = Discipline = Way = Course. At-Tareeqah = The Highest Discipline = Divine Revelation. Maa = Water, heavenly blessings = Bounties]
72:17 That We might test them (let them try their own mettle) thereby. And whoever turns away from his Sustainer’s Reminder, He will cause him to undergo an ever-increasing torment. [20:124]
72:18 And know that all Masjids (and temples of worship) are for God. ([Adoration, prostration, submission are due to God alone.) Hence, invoke not anyone along with God. \
[Masjid = Mosque = Places of worship = Collective acts of submission = Ways of adoration = Obedience of Divine Commands = Centers of administering the Divine System. 9:17)
72:19 Yet whenever a servant of God stands up with invitation to Him, they crowd on him in hostility. [22:72]
72:20 Say, "I call unto my Lord alone and associate no one with Him" [I do not heed religious ‘authorities’]
72:21 Say, "Indeed, I do not own the power to harm you or enforce enlightenment upon you."
72:22 Say, "Indeed, No one can shelter me from (the consequences of violating the laws of) God, nor can I find a hide-out from Him.
72:23 If I fail to convey to people what I receive from God and make His messages known.” Whoever disobeys God and His Messenger, behold, for him is Hellfire, to abide therein forever.
72:24 Until they see what they are promised. And so, soon will they find out who is really helpless and counts for less!
72:25 Say, "I do not know whether the promise made to you is near or if my Lord will delay it."
72:26 Knower of the Unseen (and the future), and He makes known unto none His secret,
72:27 Except as He wills unto a Messenger whom He has elected, and unto him He reveals from the past and the future, and ensures that the Revelation is guarded. [God Himself guards the Perfected Final Revelation, hence no more apostles will come. Al-Qur’an is now the Messenger for all times.15:9]
72:28 That He may make manifest that it is indeed their Lord’s messages (and nothing else) that these messengers deliver. For, He it is Who encompasses all the Revelation they have, and takes account of all things.
Ok clever clogs, what about Surah 15? Explain that you may well ask.
Surah 15 verses 26-30 Yusuf Ali We created man from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape; And the Jinn race, We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind. Behold! Your Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man, from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape; "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall you down in obeisance to him." So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together:
Before man there was a Jinn race, what about this then? Do not panic; hold your horses (or camels). Man is from “clay” or “of the earth”. He is not a ghost or spirit but real flesh and blood and having an extra element that we can call a “soul”. Next, look at line 2 and you will see naughty Yusuf Ali putting the word “race” after Jinn in order to misguide you into thinking these are a separate creation of physical/spiritual beings. Going back to our understanding of Jinn as unseen the above becomes obvious when we understand the meaning of these allegorical verses as before the creation of mankind the observable, physical, universe had been created out from energy. The Big bang did not have after the first few seconds all the planets and stars in there present form but the matter, which is just energy, existed as just that, an unimaginable bubble of energy which “coalesced” into the stars etc. In the context of these verses these Jinn, or Malaika, were the natural forces of the universe, created by Allah to which man has power over. He can control them according to his understanding of their “natures”; light can be magnified to make a laser, radiation can be directed to kill cancer cells, magnetism can be used to generate electricity. These forces are “subservient” to our wills. They “bow down” to man. These forces are not “seen” but they do exist, hence the term Jinn is applied to them.

The “fire of a scorching wind” is just a wonderful use of Arabic to beguile the uneducated and be marvelled upon by the learned. Remember, the Quran states in the following that only knowledgeable people will understand some Quranic verses:-

Surah 3 verse 7 He it is Who has sent down to you the Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah and those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:" and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.
So instead of causing ignorance and mischief to spread by believing in fairies (read Jinn) living at the bottom of your garden, pick up a modern book of science and understand what’s going on. The radiation from the Sun is one aspect of the “scorching winds” which we cannot see but are the movers and shakers of the universe.
There is also the understanding that it meant pre-human lifeforms that no longer exist, such as this by Dr Shabbir Saab-

15:26 And, indeed, We created man from sounding clay, out of dark inorganic matter. [37:11]
15:27 Before humanity became civilized, We created the caveman from flames [with fiery disposition. See Jinn – Surah 72, note]
15:28 Recall when your Sustainer said to the angels, "Indeed, I am about to create man out of sounding inorganic matter, (and then) out of hydrated clay.” [2:30-35, 7:11-22, 17:61, 19:21, 20:116-120]
15:29 And when I have perfected him in due proportion and breathed into him of My Energy, bow before him.” [Of My Energy = Free will. 76:3]
15:30 Thereupon the angels bowed, all of them together. [The physical Laws in the Universe were made subservient to mankind]
Or this by Parwez Saab:-
(26-27) This truth has been narrated before through the story of, Adam (2/30). Creation of man was initiated with a life-cell produced by the combination of water and clay moulded out of bleak loam. Before the earth was inhabited by human-beings, there existed another creation called ‘Jinn’ (since extinct) which had the capacity to endure intense heat as it was created out of steam fire.
(28-35) Homo-sapiens are the successors to that creation. Having passed through various evolutionary stages, life, manifested itself in the form of human beings [*1] who were endowed with freedom of the will and choice (2/30). At that stage the Malaika were asked to bow before Man. They did so but Iblees did not and chose to be defiant. Iblees was asked why he did not bow. He said: “I am superior to him. You have created me from fire and him of mere clay.” Allah said: “This cannot be a valid proof of your superiority. You should not have been arrogant. By being so you have degraded yourself and deprived yourself of My blessings for ever.”
If you want to look at it differently, do not jump on the “Jinn” bandwagon but see what “Khulaqal jaanna min marijin min naar” means as well. Allah has created some humans with a fiery disposition. This is confirmed by:-
Surah 21 verse 37
21:37 Human being is a creature of haste. Soon enough, I will show you more of My signs, but do not ask Me to hasten.
Man has been created with a fiery temperament that causes “fools to rush in where angels fear to tread”. Or “fools believe in whatever nonsense someone wearing a long beard and holding tasbih beads tells them”. The physical body of man is nothing special; it is made of the same “earth” that all creatures are composed of. The “I”, “soul” “ego” or “self” that is within us is the difference between animal and human. It was Allah’s pre-conceived “idea” to create a being with this ability to think and “know” the world that can also be termed a thing that is unseen, covered or hidden, i.e. Jinn. We cannot see our “self” but it exists. It is a Jinn in this sense and not in the sense that a separate being is created along with us when we are born.
If you still believe in the Jinns that our illustrious Mullahs “beat” out of “possessed” persons then I am wasting my time trying to educate you.
Surah 18 verse 50 Yusuf Ali
Behold! We said to the angels, "Bow down to Adam": They bowed down except Iblis. He was one of the Jinns, and he broke the Command of his Lord. Will ye then take him and his progeny as protectors rather than Me? And they are enemies to you! Evil would be the exchange for the wrong-doers!
Allah said to the angels, Malaika, to bow down but Iblis did not. This first line tells us that Iblis was an angel for if he were not Allah would have said “angels and Jinn”. Then Iblis is described as Jinn, so if you have understood the “unseen” definition of this you would be able to put two and two together and come up with the definition that there is an invisible force that drives us to evil. This is not a separate entity but the side effect of mans free will; to be able to chose either right or wrong. When we chose right we are on the straight path, when wrong we are on the wrong path.
Surah 2 verse 30
Behold, your Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Will You place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood, whilst we do celebrate Your praises and glorify Your holy (name)?" He said: "I know what you know not."
Man will create mischief by himself, no Iblis to trick and deceive us. We will cause mischief by following our vain desires, succumbing to our insecurities, especially by not reading and understanding the Quran correctly. To do so will clear all our doubts, make use patient and strong in our beliefs, unwavering before adversity, strength to others, etc.
Dr Shabir had this to say about demon possession, related to this Jinn topic:-
The Bible is replete with demons and demon expulsions, witchcraft, supernatural and supranatural phenomena in different forms. Yet, Christians left behind all such nonsense in the Church. The Quran repeatedly rejects the existence of JIBT (witchcraft, magic, ghoul, demons, clairvoyance, occult sciences etc) and still the JAAHIL Muslims are stuck in the quagmire, Ah! Dear God, will You ever help us? I guess not. Unless:
TANSURULLAHA WA YANSURUKUM (You help Allah and then He will help you). We humans must take the first step.
JIBT 4:51 Are you not aware of those who, after receiving their share of the Book (Quran), believe in JIBT (baseless mysteries, magic, future-telling, astrology, clairvoyance, evil eye, good and bad omens, amulets, dreams and prophecies, palm-reading, soothsaying, superstitions of all kind, jinn-possession of people, exorcism, blowing verses and senseless words on people or in food and drink, counting names on rosaries). And they believe in Taaghoot (the evil humans who try to play God with their tyranny or with their religious exploitation as priests and monks, Mullahs and Sufis of any religion)? And then they claim that they, the deniers (of the Quran) are better guided than the believers in the Book!

The human rights groups should ask King Abdullah to recite the QULS and get the matter over with.
As I said before, the N2Is are quick to reject their beloved Ahadith when they really want (and always for negative reasons).

The exalted Messenger reportedly said, “Nasharah (the pretense of expelling demons) is nothing but Satan’s handiwork.” He also said, “La Ghoul.” (There is no such thing as demons.)
Finally, recall even the exalted prophet getting bewitched according to many fabricated Ahadith! Ma’azaAllah (God forbid and His refuge is always sought).

THE PROPHET (S) AND MAGIC: The Quran is the greatest Smasher of all superstition such as magic, evil eye, physical miracles, clairvoyance, future-telling, good or bad omens and all things contrary to Sunnatillah (Allah’s Laws in Nature). It liberates mankind from all conjecture. Unfortunately, the Hadith literature often runs contrary to the Book of Allah and binds Muslims in the same shackles that the Quran had broken. The ‘Imams’ of history and Hadith fabricated a wicked story (also reported in Bukhari) that the exalted Messenger was affected by a spell of magic contrived by a Jewish magician, Lubaid bin ‘Aasim. After a while, a doll was recovered from an abandoned well as directed in a dream to the Prophet (S). The doll had needles on it along with some scalp hair of the Prophet tied around. Reminds you of Voodoo?
Under the influence of that magic, Rasool (S) used to think he had done a task while he actually had not done it. Finally, the last two Surahs (113 & 114) were revealed to the Prophet (S) and each needle was pulled out with recitation of a verse from them. He became normal again. To this day, the Mullah calls these Surahs as Ma’oozatain (The two protectors against magic etc!)
Believing in this contrived story in itself is sufficient to bring down the glorious office of prophethood. Yet, unfortunately, the so-called Muslims not only believe in it but to this day fall for unscrupulous people claiming to have the powers to cast spells of magic and to counter it, and thus deceive people into losing fortunes to them!
[17:47, 25:8] The Quran says in no uncertain terms that it is the Zaalimeen (wrongdoers, the wicked) who claim that the exalted Prophet was ever bewitched.
