What are the gender of jinns, the anti-Christ and shaytan? I just want to know because I’m sure many non-Muslims were thinking of that.
Salam alaykum, and thank you for your question. Like humans, jinn can be either male or female. Dajjal has been described in the hadith as a man. In hadith and in literature such as Qisas al-Anbiya (Tales of the Prophets), Iblis, who eventually becomes shaytan, is also understood to be male.
