Girl claims jinn causes tears of blood

Egypt teen cries tears of blood, says touched by jinn

An 18-year-old Egyptian girl who shed ‘blood tears’ claimed she had been touched by jinn, which are ghosts and spirits popular in Upper Egyptian folklore.

According to a report in the Arabic language quotidian, Sabea’a, a girl named Dawa’a appeared on Al Nahar Television, to share her experience.

The Muslim scholar explained that the jinn in this case, thankfully, were merely an external influence on the girl. And that this was because there was no change in her voice, and too, that she did she suffer from physical convulsions.

Those frightening symptoms, he asserted, are only seen in cases when jinn are internal and the victim has succumbed to total control.

One of the commentators to the story mentions haemolacria, a condition that causes a person to produce tears that are partially composed of blood. Haemolacria most often is provoked by bacterial conjunctivitis, environmental conditions or injuries. Her eyes are bloodshot. Is this a case of a real medical condition being attributed to a supernatural entity? One would hope we were past that phase. It would be better if she were medically examined before making such an extreme claim. Since a real condition exists to cause this, that should be automatically considered first.

    Tears of blood are tricky because they appear in the Bible (Jesus’ last night) and probably other religious texts too. So even though there are plausible medically and scientifically sound alternative explanations, the faithful may still prefer the ancient one.

    I’d put my money on the girl pricking herself with a pin inside the middle of her lower eyelids. Think anatomically and it should become obvious.

    No. It’s not possible. Your comment is not helpful.
