# Can The Jinn Kidnap Humans – Hadith

At the time of ‘Umar, a man was kidnapped by the jinn and stayed with them for four years, then he came back and told the people that some mushrik jinn had kidnapped him, and he stayed with them as a prisoner, then some Muslim jinn launched a campaign against them and defeated them, and brought him back to his family.

This was mentioned in Manaar al-Sabeel and elsewhere.

Manaar al-Sabeel, 2/88. The story of the kidnapped man was reported by al-Bayhaqi (7/445-446) and its Isnaad was classed as Sahih by al-Albaani in al-Irwaa’, 6/150, no.1709
