Dubai court grants man right to divorce ‘djinn-possessed’ wife
An Arab man filed for divorce after his ‘possessed’ wife repeatedly declined to have sex with him
A UAE court has granted a man the right to divorce his wife after he discovered she was possessed by a djinn, supernatural creatures in Islamic mythology and pre-Islamic Arabian tradition, a local daily said on Wednesday.
The Arab man filed for divorce after his wife repeatedly declined to have sex with him, Gulf News reported.
The woman had apparently declined her husband’s several attempts for some time until she asked him to discuss the matter with her family. The relatives, however, informed him that religious scholars had failed to exorcise the djinn.
The Dubai Sharia Court awarded him the divorce and asked him to pay his wife about $11,000. However, the court’s alimony money decision was later cancelled because she was not honest about the djinn issue.
