Jinn possession has no meaning in Islam. They can not enter or control you. Only whisper 

l figure you lean towards Fiver/Zaidi and blog on lslam, yet l think too many 'muslims' are fixated on the 'peripherals' rather than focusing on what Quran actually reveals.

Your thought/reaction?

I agree. I think generally people are happy with the faith they have inherited. And don't want to look to closely into the source. They just want to believe and maybe look into things that interest them at the periphery.

I guess its human nature.

Sports are a good example of this, most dont want to focus on the ground work and just want focus on the end product. Eg scoring a point or doing a flashy move.

It seen in other walks of life eg diets, people talking about quantum physics without even having the required level of maths etc.

Here is a "perfect" example, from American chris!ians.

There was this 'bible story' of a woman who was not physically healed, but allegedly Jesu' came along, 'healed' her unsociable spirit, and left her on her stretcher.  l even saw this story on TV and in movies when l was little.

Now an article l read in the 1980s in Time magazine -l am nearly certain as to 'the' where. When what we now refer to chris!ian right was forming in the 1970s,, like with the Moral Majority, CBN and others, people went to these religious conventions and say things like "that is not in the Bible", and ask "where does that come from", to which all the wanna-be leaders had to respond to. That was one theme of that article, how the face and rhetoric of American churches changed. Before this, pulpit-teers could say about anything they wanted to.

There was a radio program l listened to back in the 60's. One talk G.T. Armstrong made pointed out that you can be about anywhere, discussing nearly anything, and say "the Bible says . . ." and people become dumb-struck because people didn't read it -much less study it.

l  have read that misuse of hadith in North Africa and Afghanistan is done the same way. The Farkhunda l have below reflects this.
