Q: We know that man is the first living creature in the earth, so where have the dinosaurs and Jinn been at that time?

A: Man is not the first living creatures on earth, but he is the first one whom Allah has made of that species, hence, there was no human being before him, and He, the Most Exalted, has made him His Caliph on the earth. He said: I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me (51:56). The Jinn existed at that time, but they were not created to be Allah's Caliph on earth.
