There are many reasons why a jinn would interfere with humans, but there must be a reason. In all the following cases there are always three possibilities:
– the jinn may be inside the body of the person,
– outside it or
– going in and out the person‟s body as he likes.
When he is inside the body, he may possess the person and speak through him: this may be permanent, periodic or occasional.

1. Sorcery:

The most frequent reason is sorcery. Sorcery does not need to be accompanied by a jinn, but jinns are sometimes sent to strengthen the effect of sorcery.
For example, to break up a couple, the jinn can give the man a disgusting or frightening appearance in the eyes of his wife; to prevent someone working they will get the employer to reject him or not trust him.
But the most that jinns do is to mentally disturb the victim: he will get no ending thoughts and obsessions as if someone is speaking in his head all day long.
They also often play a role in illnesses and physical pains to disturb the body‟s natural functioning.

Jinns sent by sorcery are forced to do the job. They may be good, true Muslims or wicked and unbelievers.

The good ones will do the job with reluctance and the wicked one will add more.
In Africa particularly there is a long tradition of cooperation between jinns and sorcerers. As the original religion is worshiping statues and jinns through river, wood or sea, and slaughtering animals for them and offering various gifts, jinns have developed a science of serving sorcerers and accomplishing astonishing things for them. So there will be jinns with nearly every sorcery. For example, the victim could completely loose his mind by sending thousands of jinns into him. So nearly all the jinns you find in ill people are
professionals working for sorcerers.

2. Revenge:

Jinns live around us. They are many in disused and uninhabited places. Dirty and humid places are especially habited because jinns find their food in the remaining of meals and excrements. They are also especially in old and ill-maintained houses, but also in new and well maintained ones.
By living around us, they avoid us; but a single brutal action without saying: “Bismillah” or throwing something away or pouring hot water, might reach them and harm them or cause handicap or death. Then they can retaliate or avenge one of their relatives by beating the person who inadvertently harmed them. The person may be partly paralyzed or heavy, he may be anxious or depressed, have suicidal or harassing thoughts or other manifestations. This often goes with nightmares: the person is beaten or prosecuted by scaring people.

Jinns have less reason and more passion than we do.
They have three strong passions: pride, love and vengeance.
Jinns can devote his whole life doing nothing but retaliating against a person.

3. Love:

This happens when we undress without saying “Bismillah”;
jinns see us naked and can be sexually stimulated like when we see undressed persons because there is a kind of sexual compatibility between jinns and human beings.
I mean if you just undress without saying “Bismillah”, that endangers you to catch jinns; but having any kind of forbidden or shameful sexual activity is an open door for jinns to join in and they may get linked to the person. Male jinns fall in love with women and females (jinniya) with men – homosexuality cases are rare with jinns. The kinds of persons jinns like are the people with no wickedness in heart towards their fellows. So, as we must love the good, we must hate the evil and have no mercy for unfair persons. We should not be gentle so to do for others what we don‟t really want to do. A hearty person should better listen to his heart rather than trust other people. The mentality to accept to undergo others predisposes the person to get jinns or sorcery. It occurs that this lover stays incognito.

Most of the time, the person will have erotic dreams. Generally these dreams are not “difficult” but rather pleasant for men because the jinniya appears as the ideal woman for the man. They are also of a high frequency while the norm for a young bachelor is once every 10-15 days.
If it is a woman subject to the jinn, sex is very intense. If she refuses or resists, she can be forced and blocked. Many people feel this: we feel blocked while going to bed and we are freed as soon as we make a move or we pronounce the name of Allah.

The jinn that appears in the shape of the husband to cheat her and once the act is over, she realizes that it was not him. When the person is married, the jinn sometimes accepts the spouse, but most of the time, he does not bear him, therefore the person will not bear him too. This happens mostly to women. The husband should then act with tenderness to have sexual intercourse. If he insists, the wife maybe upset, cry and it will end up in dispute.
