Who came in the following verses, even Muhammad Asad said they were Christians and Jews, both termed Jinns, BUT both human beings:-

72:1 Say (O Prophet): It has been revealed to me that a tribe of nomads listened, and then they said, “We have heard a marvelous recital. [46:29]
72:2 It shows the way to Enlightenment, so we have come to believe in it. And we shall never again ascribe a partner to our Lord.
72:3 And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord. He has taken neither a wife, nor a son.
72:4 The foolish among us uttered such outrageous lies about God.

46:29 (O Messenger) We turned toward you a company of the nomads so that they may listen to the Qur‟an. And as soon as they were in its presence, they said, “Listen in silence!” And when it was over, they hurried to their people as warners. [72:1]
46:30 They said, “O Our people! We have heard a scripture that has been revealed after Moses, confirming the (truth in) what came before it. It guides to the truth and to a straight road
[For my interpolation of „truth in‟, see 2:101, 3:78, 5:48. These nomads were obviously followers of the Jewish faith since they make no mention of Jesus]

Also reflect on where we get our genie in a bottle superstitious beliefs from:-

From Talmud and Midrash. (2008). Encyclopædia Britannica. Encyclopaedia Britannica 2008 Ultimate Reference Suite. Chicago: Encyclopædia Britannica.

Astrology was a recognized science in the ancient world. The rabbis could not reject it entirely, and some concluded that the power of the stars is confined to Gentiles. Others made it part of God's order, saying that stars influence this world in the same way that climate influences plants. The rabbis strenuously objected to omens and other forms of divination because they considered them magic. Dreams were considered by some rabbis as meaningless, while others saw in them an element of prophecy.

The rabbis believed in the efficacy of magic but strenuously objected to its practice. They permitted only magic that had been proved effective in healing. They also permitted the use of incantations for the purpose of counteracting the hold of magic. Because of their supposedly protective nature, the use of amulets was also countenanced.

The existence of a demonic kingdom was accepted by the rabbis without question. Evil spirits are invisible and fill the nether world. They avoid sunlight and concentrate in waters and deserted places. They also mingle with people, trouble them, and help them. They have passions and are born and die like people. However, they also have some of the traits and powers of angels. The evil eye was considered as dangerous as evil spirits. It was thought that for mysterious reasons some people have the power to injure others by looking at them and that it is generally jealousy that triggers this effect. The rabbis, however, repeatedly emphasized that all of these strange powers are under the divine government and, moreover, that they cannot hurt the pious.
