Iron is a protection against evil, including Demons, vampires, witches and evil spirits, and Fairies. Iron repels the Djinn, and Lilith and other childbirth Demons and their children. Iron scissors or small implements are placed at beds to ward off Demonic attacks. Iron objects placed in coffins and gravesites, and iron nails driven into coffins and graves, prevent vampires and restless ghosts from leaving their graves to attack the living.
