A Saudi national newspaper has reported that a family is suing a genie over alleged harassment and theft.
The family alleged that the spirit threatened them, threw stones and stole mobile phones. A court local to them is investigating their claim. Islamic theology says that genies are spirits which can possess or harass people.
The head of the house spoke to the Saudi newspaper, but did not want to be named. He said the following:
“We began to hear strange sounds… At first we did not take it seriously, but then stranger things started to happen and the children got particularly scared when the genie started throwing stones.”
Good luck to the court in establishing the truthfulness of these accusations, that’s all I can say!
