The Quran tells Muslims that meteorites (shooting stars) are burning flames from Allah to chase away Jinn that are trying to listen in on his celestial council of Angels.
8)And we have sought [to reach] the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards and burning flames.
9)And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.
6)Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars
7)And as protection against every rebellious devil
8)[So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side,
9)Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment,
10)Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].
5)And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze.
Volume 4, Book 54, Number 432:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The angels descend, the clouds and mention this or that matter decreed in the Heaven. The devils listen stealthily to such a matter, come down to inspire the soothsayers with it, and the latter would add to it one-hundred lies of their own."
Volume 9, Book 93, Number 650:
Some people asked the Prophet regarding the soothsayers. He said, "They are nothing." They said, "O Allah's Apostle! Some of their talks come true." The Prophet said, "That word which happens to be true is what a Jinn snatches away by stealth (from the Heaven) and pours it in the ears of his friend (the foreteller) with a sound like the cackling of a hen. The soothsayers then mix with that word, one hundred lies."
