Before we speak of the martyr saint, it will be relevant to give at least a sketchy glimpse about Jinns and demonic possessions. It is not unknown that in the Islamic world Jinns and demons and their possession are commonly accepted. The Holy Quran has a whole chapter named after The Jinn who have been created out of the searing fire. Some of them are Muslims and some are deviated who follow different paths. In fact various Surahs of the Holy Qur’an have some verse or another about the Jinn. The prophetic traditions of the Holy Prophet (s) are also replete about the knowledge of Jinn and their kinds and about the ways to seek protection from them. Satan or Iblis was from among the Jinns.

Ibn Taimiyah also confirmed the position of the majority scholars stating that the existence of the jinn was an established fact according to the Qur’an and the Sunnah and the agreement of the early scholars. The Jinn too are accountable for their good and bad deeds before Allah. Scholars have categorised the Jinn into a resident Jinn called Amaar, a malicious and wicked Jinn called Shaytan; the jinn stronger than shaytan is called Ifreet, while genie is one type of Jinn; and those antagonising young boys are called arwaah. There are various types such as those who fly in the air with wings, those who are in the shapes of creatures such as snakes, dogs, scorpions, lizards, etc. and those who rest in one place and then resume their journey.

Regarding possesson of a human body by a Jinn, scholars inform us that there is a consensus among Sunni Muslims that Jinn can dwell inside a human body. Ahmed Ibn Hanbal has categorically stated that those who deny that a Jinn can enter into the body of a human being are lying. Not only the human but also other objects, things, trees can be possessed by a Jinn. Demonic possession should, however, not be confused with medical ailments like epilepsy. However, again, all fits of madness may not be epilepsy but simply seizures by evil earthly spirits . It is in this state that the afflicted person may do things which are not normally done by a normal person. The person may, for example, speak a strange language, or lift a very heavy object, may remain motionless or may go on shaking the head, or keep running to and fro, or hurling abuses and screaming and so on for hours on end.
