Jinn Habibi, who has a Twitter account, has reportedly been converted to Islam by a self-proclaimed spiritual healer through a series of tweets. The healer published the conversation, which some say is fabricated. In it, Habibi proclaims “my conversion to Islam at the hands of the sheikh. I testify that there is only one God and Muhammad is the messenger of God.” Habibi’s previous beliefs are unknown.
According to Islamic belief, jinn are non-corporeal – created from “smokeless fire” by God – and can choose to be Muslim, Christian, atheist or even Scientologist.
