Jinn can appear as a black slave or a Dog


‘Ali Ibn Abi Taalib (radiAllahu anhu)  reported:


“I swear by Allah that  Ammar Ibn Yasir fought against both humans and jinn during the life of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). People said: “We know how he fought against humans, so how did he fight against jinn?”


Ali (radiAllahu anhu) said: “We were with the Prophet  (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) on a journey and he told ‘Ammar to go get some water. So ‘Ammar (radiAllahu anhu) went to get the water, but a devil, in the form of a black slave, appeared and prevented him from getting the water. ‘Ammar wrestled with him and brought him to the ground. Satan said: “Let me go and I will let you get the water.” ‘Ammar let him go, but again Satan prevented him from reaching the water. This happened three times, and the fourth time, Satan allowed ‘Ammar to get to the water.


The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) then told  us: “Satan has assumed the form of a black slave and prevented ‘Ammar from having water, but Allah  helped  Ammar ‘defeat him.” ‘


Ali (radiAllahu anhu) said: “When ‘Ammar came back we met him, saying: ‘Well done’Ammar, the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) told us what happened to you.” Then ‘Ammar  said: “I swear by Allah if I had known that he was a devil I would have killed him – I would have throttled him were it not for his bad smell.”

[Sahih, reported by Abu ash-Sheikh in “AI-Adhamah” (1107), Ibn Sa’d in his “Tabaqaat” (3/179) and Al-Bayhaqi’s “Dala’i! an-Nubuwwah” (7/124) and at-Tabarani in “Mujma’ az-Zawa’id’ (9/293).]


In the Sahih Hadith, reported by Abu Dharr (radiAllahu anhu), the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)  said:

“A black dog is a devil.”


[Sahih Muslim (510), Abu Dawud (702), an-Nasa’i’ (2/63-64), Ibn Majah (952) and Imam Ahmed (5/149, 151, 156, 158, 160).]
