He Who makes Offerings to Jinn shall have no Good Deeds of His accepted until He repents
Some students of knowledge told us that he who makes offering to Jinn, neither his prayer nor Hajj would be accepted from him. When I heard this, I repented to Allah, because I used to do so, and I performed Hajj, but they said that my Hajj was void. Is it true that my Hajj is void? And if so, do I have to perform Hajj again?
Sacrificing animals for Jinn is Shirk. He who does so, and dies before repenting, would live in Hell-Fire eternally. No good deed is acceptable in the state of Shirk. Allah says :
وَلَوْ أَشْرَكُوا لَحَبِطَ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
But if they had associated others with Allah , then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing. (Al An'aam 88)
All praise is due to Allah Who has accommodated you to repent from this grave sin with which no good deed is accepted. Perform Hajj again, and if you are sincere in your repentance, Allah has promised to forgive those who repent, and replace their bad deeds with good ones. He says:
وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَدْعُونَ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا آخَرَ وَلَا يَقْتُلُونَ النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا يَزْنُونَ ۚ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَٰلِكَ يَلْقَ أَثَامًا
يُضَاعَفْ لَهُ الْعَذَابُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَيَخْلُدْ فِيهِ مُهَانًا
إِلَّا مَن تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا فَأُولَٰئِكَ يُبَدِّلُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ حَسَنَاتٍ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا
And those who do not invoke with Allah another deity or kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed], except by right, and do not commit unlawful sexual intercourse. And whoever should do that will meet a penalty.
Multiplied for him is the punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein humiliated -
Except for those who repent, believe and do righteous work. For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.
And it is only Allah Who grants success. May Allah exalt the mention of His slave and Messenger Muhammad, and render him, his household and Companions safe from evil.
