there is the typical exchange of supernatural horror movies, where one person believes in the supernatural but the other person says it isnt real. i wouldnt call it gaslighting, since the mother isnt intentionally trying to make her daughter question her sanity and (spoilers) the mother later believes in the spirits that her daughter told her about, but it could still be a problem for some with trauma of gaslighting.

Technically, no. There are angry air spirits, which behave a lot like ghosts do in American horror movies but at no point do the characters suggest it's dead people tormenting the family.

I think the folks answering “no” here may have misunderstood the ending. The main characters are still alive and seemingly “escape” the building, but the malevolent Djinn still possess their most treasured items and will follow them wherever they go (per the lore established in the movie, which is based on Arabian mythology and Islamic scripture).
