  • Jinns are a large part of the Islamic religion. They worship as humans do and they can be good or evil as it said. We live in an area with a high number of immigrants and often when something happens (i.e. a door shutting on its own etc) they'll say there must be a Jinn and recite an Arabic phrase which is meant to dispel evil Jinn.

  • As with a god, they need to be defined for me. I have never seen anything resembling or claiming to be a djinn. I know they are in the islamic religion as traveling spirits, both bad and good ones, with extra-ordinary powers. The word genie comes from their name.

  • No, though I don't believe in demons or angels either.

    First poster is right, though, the only time I've come across the term is in an Islamic context. :)
