A small locked door holds the last book of a failed attempt to control djinns. In the village of al-Deir we were received in the house of Sheikh Bastawi Muhammad. "See the small door in the wall?" he asked us. "It's the safe. Inside is the only book that I keep from the books about djinn and witchcraft. Several years ago a djinn I worked with was in this room and fought with my son. After this I refused to associate with her. So I decided to quit working with djinn and I threw all of the books in the Nile. The books were written in Qarmat, the language of working with djinn and magic, and I bought them from al-Hussein."
