Praise be to Allaah.
The devils (shayaateen) are the kuffaar of the jinn. Allaah,
may He be exalted, says of the accursed Iblees (interpretation of the
“except Iblees (Satan). He was one of the jinn; he
disobeyed the Command of his Lord”
Many scholars are of the view that Iblees is the father of
all of the jinn, both the believing and disbelieving ones among them. He is
their origin and they are his offspring. This view was narrated from Ibn
‘Abbaas, Mujaahid, Qataadah, al-Hasan al-Basri and others.
See: Tafseer al-Tabari (1/507) and al-Durr
There is a hadeeth concerning that which is attributed to the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). It was narrated by
al-Tabaraani in al-Mu’jam al-Awsat (6/197) from Mu’aawiyah ibn
al-Hakam al-Sulami. But it is very weak (da’eef jiddan), as it was narrated
only by Talhah ibn Zayd al-Qurashi of whom ‘Ali ibn al-Madeeni said: He used
to fabricate hadeeth. See: Tahdheeb al-Tahdheeb (5/16).
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah called Iblees the father of the
jinn in more than one place (see Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 4/346, 235), as
did his student Ibn al-Qayyim, then al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar in Fath al-Baari
Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him)
said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (9/370-371): The shaytaan is the father of
the jinn according to a number of scholars. He is the one who disobeyed his
Lord and was too proud to prostrate to Adam, so Allaah expelled him and cast
him away. End quote.
It says in Fataawa Noor ‘ala al-Darb by Shaykh Ibn
‘Uthaymeen (al-Jinn wa’l-Shayaateen, question no. 2) :
Undoubtedly Iblees is the father of the jinn, because Allaah
says (interpretation of the meaning) :
“And the jinn He created from a smokeless flame of fire”
And He describes Iblees when he addressed the Lord of Glory
(may He be glorified and exalted) (interpretation of the meaning) :
“ ‘I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire,
and him You created from clay’”
And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Will you then take him (Iblees) and his offspring as
protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you?”
This evidence clearly indicates that Iblees has offspring and
that the jinn are his offspring, but how did that come about? This is
something of which we have no knowledge and it is something concerning which
it does not matter if we are ignorant, and knowing it does not bring any
benefit. And Allaah knows best. End quote.

And Allaah knows best.
