On the Nature of the Jinn[edit]

The Following paragraph in the section.. "On the nature of the Jinn", needs a citation from a reliable Islamic source:

A Jinn might also do it for revenge. Jinn are said to be quick to anger, especially when they believe themselves to have been harmed on purpose (since Jinn are usually invisible to humans, a person can accidentally injure a Jinni not knowing that one is there). --Haroon Nizar--

This section should be removed and any appropriate material moved to the Jinn entry.

in Islam[edit]

The Hanbali sect is the main Sunni sect that believes in Jinn being capable of possessing humans and exorcism. Otherwise, the 3 other sunni sects don't believe in that.

I removed the section on removing Jinn by vising graves and wearing amulets. It is a controversial topic, not adopted by orthodox Islam and has no references attached

A cross reference is needed[edit]

Since the page mentions the movie of The Exorcist, the page of

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Hughes

should be cross referenced in my view.

To my knowledge, all the cases of the angry ghosts or devils attacking the worldly human beings are the direct consequece of the inproper human's action incurred to them in the past.

In the case of Edward Hughes encountered in 1949, which I noticed is 4 years after the World War II and I'm 90% sure that the devil is the victim or collective angry consciousness related to the World War II if one closely watches the movie and pay attention to what is scarred on the boy's chest. Again, karma will never stop manifesting what has happened and will happen to the world. As long as human being has ego views on enemies, war will never end.

Phrase?[edit]

This phase does not sound good at all

"the Holy Water especially is comparable to acid to the demon."

UK[edit]

So we have a white secular liberal source criticising West African practices from a position of assumed cultural superiority? And this troubles no one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 36.11.224.229 (talk) 01:21, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Do you have a Reliable Source that backs up your opinion about this news org? Otherwise, this is only OR. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 104.169.19.227 (talk) 06:38, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
