Around the world, and throughout history, billions of people have believed in an entire race of creatures known as the djinn. Ancient, powerful, and hidden from the human eye, djinn lore spans continents and centuries. Join host Rabia Chaudry every week as she takes you into the world you never even knew existed, the world of the Hidden Djinn.
Summoning the djinn is no easy task, but it may be even harder to get rid of them. Spells, rituals, sacrifices - it can take a lot of effort, time, and even money to rid yourself of an unwanted djinn guest.
Though we may fear the unknown, human beings also can't seem to stay away from it. That's why we have always tried to find ways to contact the unseen, and why some have gone a step further and tried to control the djinn using powerful invocations, or even making deals with their very own souls. This week we explore the many ways people have summoned the djinn.
One To Rule Them All
We know the one that rules over them by many names: Iblees. Mastema. Belzebub. Diabolos. Baphomet. Shaitaan. Satan. That's right, Satan himself. This week we trace Satan's origin story back to when the djinn ruled the earth.
With Friends Like These
We've pretty much established that the djinn are fearsome and powerful, and have an ancient enmity with mankind. But if they were all bad, wouldn't we be under constant threat by them? And what about the ones who would much rather be our friends? After all, it might be a better to keep them on your good side.
Few things are as intriguing to the human psyche as forbidden love, even if that love is so dangerous, it could cost you your life. And that's sometimes the price that's paid when a human and djinn become involved in ways you may never have imagined. Involvements that, often times, aren't completely voluntary.
I Dream Of Djinniya
They say Hell hath no fury as a scorned woman, but wait until you hear about the very first scorned female djinniya and her eternal revenge.
