What concourse hath Christ with Belial?
Eventually it's going to become the Faust bargain here.
Actually, Djinn are not analogous to the Christian devils. They're more like the Fairies, Elfs, Sidhe, Dwarfs, Vela - mythological inhabitants of this world, not some hell realm. They have families and are concerned with similar concerns as humans. They're not out to strike a faustian bargain.
I have heard that in Islam, you can't sell your soul to the devil - it doesn't belong to you in the first place, but to God. Is this correct, @muhammad_isa ? Similarly, I have heard that hell is administered by angels, in Islam, not devils, or Djinn.
So dealing with the Djinn is more like dealing with a local fairy than with Mephistopheles. At least, that's how I understand them. But I'm not Muslim.
