The Tribes of the Jinn

Happy Halloween! Jinn, those mischievous beings made of smokeless fire, are one of three races featured in the Qur’an (humans and angels being the others). They’re important figures in folklore too and a common indicator of the religion’s adaption to local culture. Assistant Professor of History Ali A. Olomi joins the podcast to tell some spooky stories and to help us understand what the jinn really are.
