Salam,

Lets enter the world off Jinns, Allah says in the Qur'an, [And He created the jinn from a smokeless flame of fire] [55 v15] Allah here is telling is that He created the Jinns from fire and that is the tip of the flame of a smokeless fire which is From the best part of the fire, from its smokeless flame, this is what we know off their creation and what they are been created from.

This means they are an Umah meaning a nation and also means they have a life just like we do and they live similar to our life style meaning that they have a male and a female and marry to each other have children, eat food and they are also in to different tribes just like the humans and they have a strong tribes and week tribes and they rule over each other.

They also have a different believes meaning different religions, there are atheism, christians, budist, jews and Muslims, and the evidence is when Allah says, [Say, [O Muhammad], "It has been revealed to me that a group of the jinn listened and said, 'Indeed, we have heard an amazing Qur'an] [72 v1] and also says, [It guides to the right course, and we have believed in it. And we will never associate with our Lord anyone] [72 v2] Allah here tells us that these jinns became Muslims after hearing the Qur'an and also show's us that they were not Muslims before that as they have said here, [And we will never associate with our Lord anyone]

To understand better what they have believed before lets see what Allah says, [And [mention, O Muhammad], when We directed to you a few of the jinn, listening to the Qur'an. And when they attended it, they said, "Listen quietly." And when it was concluded, they went back to their people as warners] [46 v29] here the same jinns who believed and became Muslims have gone back to their own people proving that they have families and tribes as they have said in another verse as well and says, [They said, "O our people, indeed we have heard a [recited] Book revealed after Moses confirming what was before it which guides to the truth and to a straight path] here it shows when they have said, [O our people] that they are talking to their own families and tribes and that they are jews when they have said, [indeed we have heard a [recited] Book revealed after Moses] this shows that they have a believe the same way that mankind has and they follow the same religion as mankind do and that they have families and tribes too and they also search for a guidance too as they have said here, [which guides to the truth and to a straight path]

This is what we know about them and more which I can not write it down all here as it will be too long but I hope this will give you an idea as to who they are and what they are and also some off them can change their forms in to that off mankind but their majority off them can change in to snakes and dogs that are in the colour off black only.
