Hadith Explanation

Jinn Eavesdrop on Angels

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The angles speak in the clouds about things that will happen on earth. The devils listen to what is said, then they drop that into the ear of the fortuneteller like dropping something into a bottle, and they add a hundred lies to it.” [Bukhari]

The devils among the jinn eavesdrop on the angels who come down to the clouds with the new decrees of their Lord. When they try to eavesdrop higher up in the heavens they are chased by flaming fire (a shooting star). Sometimes they are able to catch something. These jinn are the collaborators of fortunetellers who use this truth and mix it up with a bunch of lies. All that the fortuneteller says is believed because of that one truth heard from heaven.
