A Djinni Named Conscience

47 pages43 minutes


Jammal, a merchant, bought a gold plate for one of his wives, but the wife did something wrong. In anger, Jammal threw the plate into the burning hearth. The plate was a magical object imprisoning Abd-al-Rashid, a djinni. The djinni broke free. He repaid the merchant for releasing him by becoming Jammal’s conscience. From that day on, whatever the merchant did, the incorruptible Conscience stood behind his left shoulder.
