A girl touched by djinn shed "blood tears"
An 18-year-old Egyptian girl who shed ‘blood tears’ claimed she had been touched by jinn, which are ghosts and spirits popular in Upper Egyptian folklore.
According to a report in the Arabic language quotidian, Sabea’a, a girl named Dawa’a appeared on Al Nahar Television, to share her experience.
She said she had been touched by tribe of about one-thousand jinn.
Amr Al-Laithi, a Muslim scholar, recited verses from Qur’an as the teenager fell unconscious. When she woke up after about 20 minutes, she claimed she could not remember anything but was suffering an intense headache.
The Muslim scholar explained that the jinn in this case, thankfully, were merely an external influence on the girl. And that this was because there was no change in her voice, and too, that she did she suffer from physical convulsions.
Those frightening symptoms, he asserted, are only seen in cases when jinn are internal and the victim has succumbed to total control.
Neither person was available for comment at press time.
Nor did the jinn offer a motive in their attempt to seize the girl - BM
