I'm really excited to see someone talking of the Jinn! Having read parts of the Koran myself, I find them intriguing!
Majorion, do you think the Jinn are related in anyway to Egypt, the Pyramids etc. I certainly believe there may be an 'ET' connection somewhere - and the Jinn were around at the same time in history... I don't know, just a thought.
Are they indigenous to Earth but have celestial abilities or are they from somewhere else?
Is there any scripture as to their origin and purpose?
Do they require technology such as a craft (UFO) or are they themselves the UFO's?
Alternatively, could a nuts & bolts UFO shining in the night have been perceived by a simple people as the 'being' themselves?

As for the scripture relating to their purpose... in the Quran it is mentioned that they were created for the same purpose as us.. and I will cite a famous verse from the Quran explaining our(humans and jinn) purpose.
"And I didn't create Al-Jinn and Al-Ins(humans) except for them to worship".
Now that verse can be interpreted in many ways.
It's interesting that you entertain the possibility that 'Heaven" may be a physical location, such as another planet in contrast to Earth or a 'Spiritual Location". Is it also possible using that method of though, that 'God' may also be of a physical nature (as we understand it) as opposed to that of a 'Spiritual' nature. And since Science lacks in understanding the universe, then it is also true that we would probably know nothing about our creator and what he may be like.
Not that I 100% believe the stories of Zacharia Sitchin, but something in that vein where our creators may be advanced 'humanoids' from another part of the Galaxy.
I hope were not boring you with all these Quran questions but it does have some interesting ET related accounts in it.
I remember seeing a documentary that covered a story about Mohammad using some type of 'flying machine' though I don't remember it's correct term (apologies). I think the story went that he traveled a great distance in a short amount of time (perhaps over night) from one city to another using this 'craft'.
Also, as an additional 'cultural' question, where do you think the fables of 'flying carpets comes from? Could this also be a metaphor for a UFO or some type of flying technology that couldn't be totally understood using the knowledge of the day?
