Khaled is a djinn working in the service of Allah. So truly does he believe that in his overzealousness, he misses the mark and causes the demise of a non-believer, and is condemned to being human for a while. Although Khaled has no soul, he is offered the opportunity to become fully human, if he should make his wife come to love him.
