The man who uses ruqya, the reciting of Qur’anic verses to heal people, published the supposed conversation he

had with the jinn on his Twitter account, which has 16,000 followers.

…According to the post, the jinn said: “I am the jinn Habibi. I announce my conversion to Islam at the hands of the sheikh. I testify that there is only one God and Muhammad is the messenger of God. The sheikh was good and helped me to convert.”

Several people on Twitter have accused the man of fabricating the conversation. It was more like a joke because he wanted people to believe that jinns can have Twitter accounts, one person said.
Some experts in Islamic law said that these self-proclaimed healers are using a noble practice to make money, and that they do not realize the magnitude of their responsibility to society 

From the comments:

  • That’s good. But I’d rather use all my efforts to convert real people. The world in its present state of chaos needs Islam very badly.

  • Damn them Jinns!

      Don’t know if I’ve told the story here before but here goes.
      I was Skiing at Whistler back about 20 years ago and there was a celebrity ski challenge at Blackcomb. I was hopping on the chair in front of the Hotel during a week day when there were not many people there. The chair came and at the last second a lady skied up and joined me for the 20 minute ride up. Did the usual hi how are ya’s, then she dropped down her bandana to reveal it was Barbara Eden. I recognized her immediately, and said “Excuse me are you Barbara Eden?”. She flashed me a smile and said “Yes, thank you for remembering”. Being the 35 year old Sauvé debonair 35 year old Canadian I added in, “I used to watch you on TV when I was a kid”. The remaining 15 minutes of the chairlift ride where a lot quieter and colder than the first five minutes.

    And that’s usually the way it gets it.

    So this is the Barbara Eden and Elizabeth Montgomery fantasy thread?
    1965 was a great model year for both of those women.

    Djinn conversions to islam are extremely rare.
    This miracle sheikh should be extensively interviewed on saudi TV to explain all the details of his great accomplishment.
