يَا مَعْشَرَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ أَلَمْ يَأْتِكُمْ رُسُلٌ مِّنكُمْ يَقُصُّونَ عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِي وَيُنذِرُونَكُمْ لِقَاءَ يَوْمِكُمْ هَٰذَا قَالُوا شَهِدْنَا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِنَا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا وَشَهِدُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ أَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا كَافِرِينَ
6:130
O assembly of jinn and men! did there not come to you apostles from among you, relating to you My communications and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours? They shall say: We bear witness against ourselves; and this world's life deceived them, and they shall bear witness against their own souls that they were unbelievers.

Allah says addressing The Jinns O Ins that he has sent messengers in their mids. As such both Jinns & Ind are different creation. But some people say that Jinns are Nomads living & hiding in remote places. I can not understand this kind of understanding. Can somebody help me? Thanks

Jinn O Ins

The root jīm nūn nūn is used throughout Quran for things that are not seen; hidden gardens, paradise which is hidden from our senses, madness which hides sanity etc. When we see JINN we immediately think of invisible beings that can affect us which comes down from the age of ignorance and the naturist beliefs of some Arabs as well as the beliefs of Jews.

“Inns” means human beings so when it is termed Jinn this simply means those humans who are seldom seen, out in the ‘wilderness’, sometimes uncivilised, nomadic, remote peoples.

Look at the following:-

Surah 72
1. Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Quran). They said, 'We have really heard a wonderful Recital!
2. 'It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord.
3. 'And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son.
4. 'There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah.
5. 'But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah.

Do you think there were Christians amongst the invisible Jinn? For who else would care if Allah had a son; they must have been believers in the sonship of Jesus, hence human beings. Similarly with this:-

Surah 46
29.Behold, We turned towards you a company of Jinns (quietly) listening to the Quran: when they stood in the presence thereof, they said, "Listen in silence!" When the (reading) was finished, they returned to their people, to warn (them of their sins).
30.They said, "O our people! We have heard a Book revealed after Moses, confirming what came before it: it guides (men) to the Truth and to a Straight Path.
31."O our people, hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah, and believe in him: He will forgive you your faults, and deliver you from a grievous penalty.
32."If any do not hearken to the one who invites (us) to Allah, he cannot frustrate ((Allah)'s Plan) on earth, and no protectors can he have besides Allah, such men (wander) in manifest error."

Jewish Jinn? Hardly, this can only mean human beings of the Jewish persuasion were in attendance when the Quran was being lectured over. Either that, or there were big holes in the rows of people who were also listening there; the gaps being the invisible genies!
