The whispering of the wind was a special ritual used by sha'irs to enhance their gen's hearing ability.[1]


All rituals that enhanced a gen's hearing required a set of earrings studded with valuable gems worth at least 500 dinars. This ritual lasted for 16 hours.[1]

Once the ritual was complete the gen was able to hear any conversation that they could see taking place, including those were the participants used magic to mask their voices.[1]
