According to a reliable narrative quoted on the authority of Imam Mohammad al-Baqer (a.s.) reported by Shaykh Saduq (a.r.) in his “Elal ash-Sharaye” (vol. 1, section 96) before Allah created human beings, there lived Jinn and Nasnaas (creatures resembling human beings) for 7000 years in a disgraceful manner which made the angels make the above-mentioned remarks. Sayyed Mohammed Musawi
