Muslims believe in genii?

Besides angels and devils, there are also jinns, or genii, creatures of fire, able to eat, drink, propagate, and die; some good, others bad, but all capable of future salvation and damnation.

Are there any muslims who ever saw a genii? How do they look like and where do they live? Any muslim who can expound this belief?
