"Sorcerers, fortune tellers or Jinn catchers, as they are colloquially known, have existed for centuries in Muslim lore. Ordinary people in Iran and elsewhere flock to these men to get spells and prayers, and to communicate with Jinn in order to discover the whereabouts of a lost loved one or stolen property."

This is a facinating in-depth article and, yes, it is a few years old but still just as relavant today. Worth the read to get a better understanding of the culture and belief of the Jinn in Iran.
