Can a kafir be possessed by jinn?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Assalaamu `alaykum Mufti Sahib.

Can a kaafir be possessed by a jinn? Are there reports from our kitaabs that mentions any kuffaar having being possessed?

Jazaakallaahu Khayr.

Answer: Yes it is possible for them to be possessed.

Jinns like teasing vulnerable people. They avoid strong, courageous, assertive persons.

So if a non Muslim was a soft, weak person the jinn would attempt to harass them. But if they were positive and they ignored everything and got on with their lives, jinns would be frustrated and flee.
