MYTHICAL MONDAY 37 - JINN

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

 

“Jinn, jann or djinn are supernatural creatures in Islamic mythology as well as pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. They are mentioned frequently in the Quran and other Islamic texts and inhabit an unseen world called Djinnestan, another universe beyond the known universe. The Quran says that the jinn are made of a smokeless and ‘scorching fire’, but are also physical in nature, being able to interact in a tactile manner with people and objects and likewise be acted upon...Like human beings, the jinn can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent and hence have free will like humans and unlike angels.”
