Marrying a Jinn

Q: If a human and a genie have offspring, would it be considered a human or a jinn? How would that child be treated in the Aakhirat, as a human or jinn? If that child is born like a human and lives a life like humans only, but the parents are mixed (father is human and mother is a genie). If such offspring’s fall in love with humans are Muslim men/women allowed to marry such offspring who are a mix and living as human beings only and following Islam like every other human? Will this marriage be considerable by Allah and shariah? Is this marriage punishable in afterlife? 

A: This type of a relationship is not permissible. It is haraam.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
