More commonly known as a genie (Though sometimes both beings are seen as different), Djinn (or Jinn) are supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings which occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. Like humans, they can be good (Genie), evil (Djinn), or neutrally benevolent. According to the Qu'ran, the Djinn were created by [[Allah]] from a smokeless fire. The focus in Western culture has been on the Djinn or genie's ability to grant wishes, which originated in the tales from ''The Book of One Thousand and One Nights." The true form of a Djinn is currently unknown because they appear invisible to humans, but have the power to shapeshift into human and animal forms to become physical. Arab lore also says that Djinn possess superhuman speed, strength, immortality, can mimic human voice, and can even possess humans like demons do. Djinns are even said to be vulnerable to salt, iron, and silver.''
