The Substances from which Mankind and Jinns were created

Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid and Qatadah said that Salsal means dry mud. The apparent meaning is similar to the Ayah:

ุฎูŽู„ูŽู‚ูŽ ุงู„ุฅูู†ุณูŽู€ู†ูŽ ู…ูู† ุตูŽู„ู’ุตูŽู€ู„ู ูƒูŽุงู„ู’ููŽุฎู‘ูŽุงุฑู – ูˆูŽุฎูŽู„ูŽู‚ูŽ ุงู„ู’ุฌูŽุขู†ู‘ูŽ ู…ูู† ู…ู‘ูŽุงุฑูุฌู ู…ู‘ูู† ู†ู‘ูŽุงุฑู

(He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the potter’s clay, And He created the Jinns from a smokeless flame of fire.) (55:14-15) It was also reported from Mujahid that,


(dried (sounding) clay) means “putrid”, but it is more appropriate to interpret an Ayah with another Ayah.

ู…ู‘ูู†ู’ ุญูŽู…ูŽุฅู ู…ู‘ูŽุณู’ู†ููˆู†ู

(of altered mud) means the dried clay that comes from mud, which is soil. “Altered” here means smooth.

ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ุฌูŽุขู†ู‘ูŽ ุฎูŽู„ูŽู‚ู’ู†ูŽู€ู‡ู ู…ูู† ู‚ูŽุจู’ู„ู

(And the Jinn, We created earlier) means before creating humans.

ู…ูู† ู†ู‘ูŽุงุฑู ุงู„ุณู‘ูŽู…ููˆู…ู

(from the smokeless flame of fire.) Ibn `Abbas said, “It is the smokeless flame that kills.” Abu Dawud At-Tayalisi said that Shu`bah narrated to them from Abu Ishaq, who said: “I visited `Umar Al-Asamm when he was sick, and he said: `Shall I not tell you a Hadith that I heard from `Abdullah bin Mas`ud He said: `This smokeless flame is one of the seventy parts of the smokeless fire from which the Jinn where created. Then he recited,

ูˆูŽุงู„ู’ุฌูŽุขู†ู‘ูŽ ุฎูŽู„ูŽู‚ู’ู†ูŽู€ู‡ู ู…ูู† ู‚ูŽุจู’ู„ู ู…ูู† ู†ู‘ูŽุงุฑู ุงู„ุณู‘ูŽู…ููˆู…ู

(And the Jinn, We created earlier from the smokeless flame of fire).”‘ The following is found in the Sahih,

ยซุฎูู„ูู‚ูŽุชู ุงู„ู’ู…ูŽู„ูŽุงุฆููƒูŽุฉู ู…ูู†ู’ ู†ููˆุฑูุŒ ูˆูŽุฎูู„ูู‚ูŽุชู ุงู„ู’ุฌูŽุงู†ู‘ู ู…ูู†ู’ ู…ูŽุงุฑูุฌู ู…ูู†ู’ ู†ูŽุงุฑูุŒ ูˆูŽุฎูู„ูู‚ูŽ ุขุฏูŽู…ู ู…ูู…ู‘ูŽุง ูˆูุตูููŽ ู„ูŽูƒูู…ยป

(The angels were created from light, the Jinn were created from a smokeless flame of fire, and Adam was created from that which has been described to you.) The Ayah is intended to point out the noble nature, good essence and pure origin of Adam.
