Con­formist djinn

Fortean Times - - Letters -

In his re­view of Elf Queens and

Holy Fri­ars [ FT355:59], Jeremy Harte won­ders why Is­lam could ac­com­mo­date be­lief in djinn while the Chris­tian Church could not. This is be­cause the Bi­ble doesn’t men­tion fairies, while the Q’uran men­tions djinn in more than 40 verses, point­ing out that some of them heard Muham­mad re­cite the Holy Book and ac­cepted the tenets of Is­lam. In other words: be­lief in djinn is part of the Mus­lim faith, and some djinn are Mus­lims them­selves. Ulrich Magin Hen­nef, Ger­many
