I recently watched [i]The exorcism of emily rose[/i] in the cinemas... as you all proably know that the film is based on a true story..
After watching the film i got thinking about jinns and possessions etc.. We've all heard stories about Jinns entering humans particularly back home.
Just wanted to ask what does Islam say about jinns and possession? Can they enter humans and if they can what can we do to prevent such things from happening??
I've heard that Jinns possess people for many reasons. Sometimes it is because the Jinn or its family has been hurt accidentally.
It could be because the Jinn has fallen in love with the person.
However, most of the time possession occurs because the Jinn is simply malicious and wicked.
For this reason we have been told by the Prophet (saws) not to loiter in those places where the Jinns reside, e.g. graveyards, ruins, deserts, market places etc.
