Case 7: The Angel in the Bathroom
By BBC Radio 4
Danny Robins talks to Tom, an NHS mental health nurse working with troubled young people. Tom starts to work with Yousuf, a teenage boy from a devoutly Muslim background. His family believe he is possessed by a djinn – an evil spirit, but Tom believes Yousuf is having a crisis of faith which has led him to the brink of suicide.
When Yousuf does tries to take his own life, he is rescued in seemingly impossible circumstances. Ardent atheist and sceptic Tom is forced to explore the possibility that he has witnessed something he cannot explain. But is it really divine intervention?
