It turns out that Jinns can also enter heaven if they believe and are devout.

Allah Ta'ala says,

And for whoever fears standing before his Lord, there are two gardens

“And for those who fear the moment of facing their Lord there are two heavens” (QS. Ar Rahman: 46). This verse is aimed at humans and jinn.

Ibnu Katsir rahimahullah said, "The above verse is general for humans and jinn. The verse is evidence that supports that jinn also enter heaven if he has faith and piety. Therefore, God promises jinn and humans with such a reward." (Sahih Tafsir Ibnu Katsir, 4: 344-345)

The condition of jinn who believe in heaven is the same as the condition of humans who believe in heaven. This is the opinion of the majority of scholars who state that jinn also enter heaven. Jinns also receive rewards like humans,

No soul knows what has been hidden from them of comfort for their eyes as a reward for what they used to do.

“No one knows the various blessings that await, which are beautiful to be seen as a reward for them, for what they do.” (QS. As Sajadah: 17). This verse is addressed to humans and jinn

While the infidel jinn will go to hell as mentioned in the following verse,

I will fill Hell with jinn and all people.

“Indeed I will fill Jahannam with jinn and (disobedient) humans all.” (QS. Hud: 119)

And We have created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind.

“And verily We made for (the contents of Jahannam) most of the jinn and humans” (QS. Al A'raf: 179) .

Ibnu Muflih dalam Al Furu’ menyatakan,

The jinn are charged in general: their disbeliever will enter Hell, and their believer will enter Paradise, not that he will turn to dust like animals, and his reward will be salvation from Hell.

“Jin are burdened by Sharia in general. Those who disbelieve among the jinn are put in hell. Meanwhile, those who believe will be included in heaven. But they actually turn to dust just like livestock. The reward for their deeds is safety from hell."

Imam As Suyuthi dalam Al Asybah wan Nazhair menyatakan,

There is no disagreement that the disbelievers of the jinn are in Hell, and there is disagreement over whether their believers will enter Paradise and be rewarded for obedience? According to the best sayings, yes, and it is attributed to the audience

“There is no mistake among the scholars that jinn who disbelieve will be tortured in hell. Meanwhile, the dispute regarding the jinn who believe is whether they will enter heaven because of their obedience. The most correct opinion is, yes, they go to heaven. This opinion is the opinion of the majority of ulama."

Hope it is useful.
