Important Note

Please note: Iblis shaytaan who disobeyed Allah is a Jinn. There is further information below after the true story. Please make sure you read this article thoroughly to understand the Jinn and their existence among human beings on Earth.

Jinns truly exist which you will find proof from the Holy Quran. There is a full chapter in the Holy Quran on Jinns. We all have Jinns attached to us all!

Hadith - Sahih Muslim 6757, Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, similar narration 6759 by 'Aisha, r.a.
Allah's Apostle said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attached from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Apostle with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.

Do Jinns Exist?

'Do Jinns exist' I hear you ask? Yes, Jinns are real. They are living with us, alongside us, seeing everything we do. They can see us but we cannot see them unless they take the form of a human being, a black dog, or other forms.

Have I seen a Jinn? No, I haven't and I expect and hope not to see one in my lifetime!

Short Story Involving the Unseen Jinns

This is a true short story which i experienced when i was asleep one night and i thought that i would die in my sleep.

Before this experience, i only heard other people's experiences and did not really believe in what some Jinns can really do to harm human beings, but i know what good some Jinns can do to help human beings.

Like human beings, Jinns are good and bad. Jinns are made of smokeless fire while humans are made of clay according to Islam.

This short story is based on an Islamic experience but i think non Muslims may experience it too. I have been advised that it is sleep paralysis, but i don't believe in sleep paralysis. I believe that Jinns live among us and mess around with us, to make fun of us humans and have a laugh. These Jinns i am talking about are the easy going ones, whereas you have the terrible Jinns who go to the extremes of killing human beings if they really get angry at them for something that human may have done to them. I have heard stories of Jinns attacking 'innocent' people and killing them for whatever reason, we will never know.

To find out more on Jinns, please follow THIS LINK and you understand more about the 3 different types of Jinns and what they are capable of.

Attack Of The Jinn

In deep sleep, i could feel my breathing becoming slow and prolonged under the thick duvet on a cold winters night. I felt very comfortable and not disturbed in my peaceful sleep, which does not happen regularly.

Falling into deeper sleep, i started to dream, or i thought i was starting to dream.

With my eyes suddenly opening and looking at the bedroom ceiling, i could see myself on the ceiling like a mirror reflection. All of a sudden my view changed to seeing myself in bed sleeping. At that point my view did not change, but i was floating from the ceiling down to the floor and standing against the bedroom wall opposite to my bed.

Pointing towards my concious body in bed, i started laughing and at the same time i could feel myself in bed and leaning against the bedroom wall. I thought to myself that this i a very odd dream never ever experienced before.

The weirdest thing was i was not able to move,speak or even try to wake up, or i thought i was asleep when in fact i was probably awake!

Strangled To Death

All this was happening so smoothly there was no opportunity for me to think what is actually happening to me!

The visions ended and i was back in bed asleep thinking it's all over, but to my surprise i could feel pressure on my chest. Pressure that was becoming unbearable slowly, finding it difficult to breath. Feeling my heartbeat slow down, i tried to move the duvet off my chest to allow me to take a breath and wake up, but to no avail.

Concentrating on my breathing, i could not carry out the simple task and could feel being strangled around the neck. My consciousness fading away, i thought i would be strangled to death and it was becoming inevitable that i would die. I thought to myself that i am dying and starting shouting and screaming so that my uncle and aunty would wake up and come running into my room to help me fight off what i knew now was a Jinn attacking me.

Usually when i cough or talk in a normal tone they can hear me, or i can hear them coughing and talking from their room. I could not understand why they weren't acknowledging my screaming and shouting for help. I tried to concentrate on the next room and could hear my uncle and aunt snoring, and thought that this is a genuine attack of the Jinn and i have to do something to fight it off by myself, or else i will be strangled to death.

Dying in my sleep didn't seem too bad at that point because i have lived a life i was happy with and achieved some things of what i wanted. If i die now, i will die with a smile on my face. But why should i give up and lose this fight with the Jinn?

Last Words Before Death

My mind is still slightly concious, but i cannot open my mouth and even if i thought i could and shouted and screamed, there is no one in the world who could help me right now. Not even my uncle and aunt who were sleeping peacefully in the next room.

If it is my time now to die, i may as well die as a Muslim and the last words before death as a Muslim should be said. The Kalima.

There is no chance left for me to live or fight off the Jinn which was winning it's battle to kill me by sitting on my chest and strangling me to death. My breathing stops but i can still think.

This is the end of me, i am dying so there is nothing else to do. It is my time to die and either go to heaven or hell and meet Allah, the Lord of the universe.

I can only do one last thing, which is to say the last words before death,

"La ilaaha illallahu Muhammadur rasul ullah" i thought in my mind once.

"La ilaaha illallahu Muhammadur rasul ullah" i thought in my mind twice.

Slowly i could feel my chest becoming lighter and the strangle easing off. This is working! Even if i die now i know, God willing, i will go to heaven.

"La ilaaha illallah"... and this time i did not have to finish off saying the kalima, and the Jinn completely let go of my neck and the pressure was totally off my chest.

I breathed out and took a very deep breath in, opened my eyes, started to move and felt very wet. My whole body was sweaty and my breathing restored back to normal. "Alhamdulillah", i thought to myself. I am still alive! It has worked! Allah has saved me!

Looking around the room, things were normal, nothing was out of place and my duvet was still on top of me. My uncle and aunt was still asleep, snoring.

Thank Allah i am still alive. I was still tired and it was nearly time for sunrise. I thought i will get out of bed and pray to Allah for saving me from the Jinn.

I prayed until sunrise, then prayed the compulsory morning prayer and then went back to sleep.

Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful
Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful

What To Do If You Have a Similar Experience

After publishing the above story about an attack from a Jinn, i have had some really good feedback and also noticed that there are many other people who have experienced Jinns attacking them in their sleep.

I would like to advise anyone who has had a similar experience to seek the protection from Allah from such evil things. There are many prayers that can be recited from the Quran before going to sleep and after waking up.

One of the best things to do if you do experience anything like this is to seek advise from an Imam from your local Masjid (Mosque). An Imam will inshallah be able to help you and give you an understanding of what Jinns are and how to protect yourself from all evil creations.

Below is a link to a website which will help you which include Duas from the Quran.

The best advice i can give you is to offer your salah five times a day, on time and in congregation if possible. There is no better protection from evil than by offering salah five times a day as you will remember Allah and Allah will remember you. Allah will protect us if we seek his protection from evil beings who roam the Earth.

Inshallah, this advice will be useful to anyone looking to protect themselves from evil.

Don't forget, Iblis is a Jinn who disobeyed Allah and they can take whatever form they wish to promote evil deeds.

Jinn According to Quran and Sunnah

The Noble Qur'an - Ar-Rahmaan 55:15, 15

He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery.

And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.

Hadith - Sahih Muslim 6757, Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, similar narration 6759 by 'Aisha, r.a.

Allah's Apostle (pbuh) said: There is none amongst you with whom is not an attache from amongst the jinn (devil). They (the Companions) said: Allah's Apostle (pbuh) with you too? Thereupon he said: Yes, but Allah helps me against him and so I am safe from his hand and he does not command me but for good.

Hadith - Sahih Bukhari 4:533, Narrated Jabi bin 'Abdullah

The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Cover your utensils and tie your water skins, and close your doors and keep your children close to you at night, as the Jinns spread out at such time and snatch things away. When you go to bed, put out your lights, for the mischief-doer (i.e. the rat) may drag away the wick of the candle and burn the dwellers of the house." Ata said, "The devils." (instead of the Jinns).

The Noble Qur'an - Al-A'raaf 7:179

And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones.

        Assalamualaykum W W!

        Dear brothers and sisters.

        Those who experience sleep paralysis they are most probably possessed by jinns, I have the same problem so I decided to figure it out whether there was a jinn possessing me or not. I went to a Raqi(someone who recites RUQYA) and told him all the symptoms, he told me that it is most probably a jinn possessing you so he started to recite the ruqya, while he was reciting the ruqya I started to experience an intense pain in my head and my legs were shaking intensely, suddenly I felt something moving inside my legs the Raqi carried on with the recitation until it was over. After the Ruqya process I told Raqi what happened to me during Ruqya and Raqi told me that you have a jinn possessing you, so he gave me some instructions to fight this jinn and make it leave my body. The instructions are as follows:

        1- Recite surat Al-Baqara everyday in a single session.

        2-Recite surah Al-dukhan, Al-Jinn, As-saffat, Yasin everyday.

        3- Eat honey and dates and use olive oil. And so on...

        This is a sincere advice dear brothers and sister if you are suffering from sleep paralysis or constantly seeing black snakes or dogs or scorpions or seeing predators chasing you or falling from a high place or seeing jinn in your dreams then don't waste your time and go and find a Raqi to perform a ruqya on you.

        Also I recommend you to read the book called " Sword Against Black Magic and Evil Magicians " which is a must read for every muslim. May Allah protect us all.

        A.c. 5 months ago

        Here's my experience with what I believed till recently was sleep paralysis...Now I think it was jinn attack. I am woman, 32 yrs old at that time (this happened 3 yrs ago). I am born of European Muslim family but except for learning El fatiha and few other short surah in my childhood, I was never religious, never prayed once to Allah, and was agnostic at the best. Also I never saw, felt or believed in demons or jinns. I did have occasionally very mild cases of sleep paralysis (and I knew science behind it) but I never had out of body experience.

        One night after I fell asleep I had this horrible nightmare. I dreamed that there was demon in my house.. I felt strong terrifying presence of it but I couldn't see it. In my dream I was so scared that I cried and begged my husband to leave house with me immediately. In that disturbed state I suddenly woke up. (My husband fell asleep in living room in front of tv). I heard very loud vibration in my ears and in same moment I felt my body being pulled up towards ceiling. I was desperately trying to grab my bed sheet to keep myself in my body on the bed. I know that it's not possible that I was hovering above the bed but that's exactly what it felt like. I couldn't move and I felt terror in my bones. I felt presence of the demon right there in my bedroom ( science say u might experience scary visual hallucinations during sp so I made sure I kept my eyes firmly shut) Obviously I could not move and I could hardly breath. But what really freaked me out was struggle to go back to my body coz whatever was pulling me up was not giving up on me. I thought I am dying. In my mind I said "God help me please" and I begun repeating over and over again the only 2 suras which I still remembered from my childhood. In few moments I was back to my body and I was able to move. I was beyond scarred.. I still felt demonic presence in my room and with eyes open this time I managed to stretch my arm across the bed and turn on bedside lamp. It was about 2 am. Ive tried to calm myself down but was scared to go back to sleep...I was half laying half sitting in my bed with my eyes open and lamp lights on but this sensation of pulling out and up was washing over me was coming in the waves. This time I was able to actually grab my sheets and keep myself "grounded". It didn't make sense to me.. Coz there was no doubt that I was fully awake now and not paralysed should have been over by now. In order to distract my mind and " go back to reality " I reached out to my bedside table again to take my mobile phone. I did not dare to move much sobi just stretched my arm to reach the phone. As I touched the phone I heard my own voice in my mind saying to me " be carefull, don't take it close to your face, something will scare you now". It was all happening in split of the second. I stretched my arm as far as I could from myself with my phone in my hand and opened Google homepage. In same moment over it across the screen popped up picture of demon. It was sort of woman..background of photo was dark, demon had Long black hair, ghostly white face with blood leaking from eye eyes. In bold red letters across the photo was written " did you have a nice dream". At that moment I froze...I knew it could not be coincidence. I minimized the screen.. I did not want to close it completely .. Somewhere in my mind I was still sceptic.. What if I am still dreaming.. Maybe this is not happening.. So I decided to leave it and look at it "tomorrow" in the morning.. In broad sunlight... With people around me. Coz maybe non of this is real. Chills and terror I was feeling was extraordinary. I took my phone carefully again and dialed my husband. ( he was asleep in living room). I remember being so scarred that I thought what if his phone doesn't ring??? I was too scared to leave the bed and go to him. But thanks God I heard his phone ringing in the room, I just told him I had bad dream and asked him to come to bedroom and sleep next to me. With lights on and prayers to God I stayed awake in bed till early morning waiting for daylight which is when I finally braved myself to fall asleep. I woke up about noon time. I still felt very uncomfortable in my house and memory of previous night still terrified me. But I did not mention anything to my husband. As I was having my coffee with him I asked our son to go to bedroom and bring me my phone. I unlocked the phone and gave it to my husband. I asked him to open minimized screen and tell me what he sees. He took the phone, looked at it and said "Wtf !!! Why are you showing me this?" He was visibly shaken by the image. It was still the same photo of demon.

        For several days after I insisted we sleep with lights on.

        Unfortunately that time I was still very ignorant, and arrogant I suppose, I had no knowledge about Islam and had no interest to learn. But that event was beginning of my "awakening" and Elhamdullilah, some years later, now I am on the right path.

        Before sleeping, always recite AT LEAST Ayat Alkursi/Verse of the Throne and the Mu’wadattayn if you can (three times each, Ayat Alkursi only once),blow into gathered hands after every recitation, then run down the whole body that you can reach. THey can’t harm you that way. If they ever try to hurt tou, recite any quran you know by heart, especially ayat AlKursi, you will see them massively defeated.

        For some people, sleep paralysis is not jin attack, and some people think there's no jin attack, it's sleep paralysis...but for me, both of them exist. I've experienced sleep paralysis and jin attack since I'm 12 years old, and now I'm 15..I know how to differentiate them. They're different ! One simple things that can make you recognize whether it's sleep paralysis or jin attack is, try to read ayatul kursi/ an/nas or so much more ..if the burden you're facing is becoming lighter and's jin attack. That's the simple way to recognize..there're so much more. Sleep paralysis (you must fight for yourself, if you read some ayatul stated in quran..maybe will work to get you wake up from that situation..but sometimes, it didn't, but in my works because Allah help you no matter if it's sleep paralysis..but you know, about the jin attack..sometimes when you read ayatul quran..the burden you're facing become light..but if you don't wake up ( I mean after the burden become light..then you continue to sleep)..the jin might attack you again (I've experienced this..but this condition also involved in sleep paralysis) .At least you must sit for a while..and read some ayatul quran and you can continue to sleep again. Also about the jin attack..sometimes when I recite ayatul burden become light..but then still I can't wake up..and I'll feel heavy this case, I think that the jin that attack me is the strong one, so you must read ayatul quran continuously (you must feel confident when you face it) and trust Allah ! Besides, based on my experience..I believe that jin can attack you while you're in sleep paralysis condition..for me this is two in one. About the assault, most people's jin attack ( I never face this type of attack, but I know since I faced the two in one condition)..but for's also sleep paralysis...because when you're in paralysis..your mind is tired (read some science explanation about sleep paralysis)...and here comes two things : (I don't want to use the word 'sex' I replace it with 's'..didn't mind right ? ) 1) your tired mind set that you want to have 's' (but when you face it, you forget that you set it..and when you try to avoid it back by setting back your mind..sometimes it'll not work because your mind is tired..and process only in one turning back..for me it's somehow like 2) when you're facing sleep paralysis..jin attack you..and control your mind to thinking about sex..( when you think about it's kinda you set it)..for me..jin didn't assault you..but it tells you to be in sex..and if you're not a strong person and get influence easily (relate to your iman on that time ) you'll get into this case..when you're facing can recite ayatul quran..and it works..just like I said, be confidence..never be Allah..! ..and you sometimes this condition needs you to fight back (physical-try move you finger and so much more to do - these thing can be use to wake up from sleep paralysis..yeah I know all of you might know this :) I comment this to tell people my opinion about sleep paralysis and jin attack based on my experience and research. I hope this may help you :)

        I have read most stories and would like to share mine. I have always been confused about my experience and never been able to make anyone understand what it is i am going through. For the past few years i have had different types of dream like awake experiences.

        Sometimes the dream i see is almost the same as the room i am sleeping in except that a few details are different. Sometimes i realize that i am dreaming and need to wake up but sometimes i do not. A range of different things happen in these dreams and most of the time i am always trying to pray ayat ul kursi surah naas, falaq and ikhlas. Sometimes i am able to pray it but other times i struggle as it feels like theor is pressure on my mouth or tongue which is stopping me from praying. Sometimes i see men and women attacking me or holdinh me down in some way. Sometimes its my own family members. The dream seems to be based on my every day life but tries to fake it. For example, in real life my husband leaves home at 6am, i ho back to sleep and the dream shows me that he has come back etc but i realise this is not true and try and wale up!

        Some experiences are worse then others and sometimes when i wake up i feel extremely drowsy as though something wants me to sleep again. I pray my adhkaar and surahs before i sleep and sleep with wudu but it still happens.. mostly it happens when i have woken from sleep and gone back to sleep but on some occasions it had happened withoit me awakening.

        Sometimes i feel someone touching me without seeing anything amd other times i see unknown people who physically hurt me. This morning one of the dreams was a woman who was holding my hands and would let go and i was trying to scratch her, i was tryjnh to pray but the full surah was not coming out. I get scared by this type of stuff and it really messes with my mind.this has happened to me both before and after marriage.

        Please advise.

        It is good to experience such attack by the Satans from jinns for the reason to believe satans are true and pray ayatul qursi is a kind of help from Allah.Such experience will strengthen faith and istiqomah to Allah.

        I was sextually abused by a relative in my childhood. A few years later I started getting these Jinn attack experiences just like all the other brothers and sisters have posted. I am a muslim and I was scared to tell anyone what my relative was doing to me. I thought my parents wont believe me. I suffered in silence for years. I used to pray 5 times a day and ask Allah for Help. One day I got the courage, I sat both my parents with my dad's close friend and told them the whole story about my relatives and how he was black mailing me over the years. My parents were shocked. My dad's friend believed me straight away. He was aware of my nightmares and attacks at night and he explained to us that women usually have these experiences and attacks in their life when they have been been a victim of abuse in their childhood. I have spent hours reading what other people have written today. Believe me I am being truly honest I have had these attacks for many years. I scream at night and by the time my parents come into my room they see me waving my arms and legs as if someone is attacking me.I have performed Haj and I pray 5 times a day. I carry a tusbi and pray duas all the time bit still I get these jinn attacks. Since telling my parents I have managed to move on in life. My parents spoke to my relative and he was banned to never enter our house or my life. The day this decision was made was the best thing I have ever done. I have put all that in the past. I have found a great husband and have a great family. But still I have these jinn experiences. One day I told my husband about my relative. Thanks to Allahji my husband understood and believed my story. Sometimes when I get these attacks my husband has to grab me and wake me up from my sleep. The best solution for us is to read the Kalma, the Four Quls and Ayat ul kursi which we know by heart. I have never informed my doctors because I don't want to hear form them that I am suffering from depression and I definitely don't think any of there medication will work. I am a happy person and live an amazing life. Alhamdullilah

        Any how whatever the cause the abuse or jinn - I definitely agree with G Miah and the rest of brothers and sisters that reciting the kalma, the four quls and Ayat ul kursi helps. I takes time, you have to be strong and carry on praying and eventually it will go away when it happens.

        But I'm still wondering how many people out there maybe victims of abuse? and having these attacks???????

        I am a muslim. This is the first time I have read about Jinns and how they come in to people's life. I have been having these jinn experiences attacking me since the age of 19 years. I performed Haj at the age of 21 and I remember the Jinn came to attack me at night whilst I was in the Hotel - not far from Madinah Mosque. I never thought the Jinn would follow me all the way to Madinah. I told my father at time but he never took it seriously. He thought I'm praying 5 times namaz daily, reading the Quran all the time and performing Hajj so it should not be happening - but it was.

        I am 39 years old, married and have children and the jinn still comes to attack me. I read the Kalma, The Four Quls and ayat ul kursi which i know by heart. Sometimes I have to continously carry on reading them for a very long time again, again and again before the jinn finally goes away. When the attack happens it is very realistic and all you people who have these attacks like me know how hard it is to be strong and just focus your mind in praying. Its very tough. My husband and brothers dont believe me. They say it is due to tension and stress. My husband has heard me scream, sweat and try to fight the jinn away. But he says its nightmares in my sleep. Im so glad this page has been set up because I thought I was the only one but now I know there is a world out there in the same position as me,

        Assalamu'alaykum. For a long time now I have been experiencing this sort of thing. Sometimes at night, sometimes after fajr. When I'm trying to fall asleep or after I have fallen asleep I begin to feel pressure in my head, like my brain is pressing against my skull, threatening to explode. So I open my eyes, and when I do I hear a noise. It is loud like a siren. The first time it happened it was terrifying. I was sleeping on a top bunk at the time and I saw something floating beside the bed, whispering. I could only see its feet and the bottom of its dress/cloak. It was wearing beautiful slippers and a beautiful cloak. I recited some duas and it left. I tried to sleep again but the same thing happened, this time it was whispering and moving its foot up and down. I recited some duas again and it left. Ever since then I have been afraid to fall asleep without anyone awake in the room. Since then none of the things that bother me have been as terrifying, and they started after that. I didn't see that exact thing until recently when I fell asleep while reading for an exam. I didn't see it so much as feel it. I heard its footsteps walk towards me from the other side of the room. Then when it got to me that familiar feeling in my head started. The blankets were up to my jeas but I knew what it was. It was speaking in a language I couldn't understand. I felt it touch me through my blanket, and afterwards I could feel a numb sensation where it had touched me. As for the other experiences, they are that something refuses to wake up. Usually I can hear a noise when I am finally able to open my eyes, but before then I can't move, I can't speak, I can't do anything but recite things in my mind until I can finally move. It's is disturbing my sleep. Please help.

        There was no dream involved. Brothers and Sisters, remember Allah where ever you may be accept for toilets. Remember Shaytan, is clear enemy and all he wants is to place far in your heart and make you forget Allah. Brothers and Sisters never fear Shaytan as they enjoy scaring mankind and the more you feel scared of them, they more they build and increase in their ignorance.

        If you read through the Quran and learn the tafsir, you can clearly see that the Shaytan is clear enemy to mankind. " His objective is to misguide mankind by whatever means necessary "

        During the year 2013, Moved from New Zealand to Australia for employment, While staying with my brother house, After fajr prayer, I went to sleep, while I was sleeping, I experience heaviness in breathing, not being able to move my body, it felt though something was pushing be down and I couldn't speak Subhnallah, my mouth would not move, deep down in my mind i was reading the Shahada and telling me myself, that the promise of Allah is true and nothing is greater then Allah swt. While that time, I had Quran playing and could hear it, Surah Qiyamah Ayat - 26 No! When the soul has reached the collar bones,

        I felt though my soul was leaving the body, and telling myself if my time has come, at least die saying the shahada, la ilaha illallah muhammadur rasulullah 3x, and I woke up with no pressure and felt amazing, and was making dua to Allah swt for this wonderful religion and blessing me with Islam.

        I know that shaytain/ Satan plays around with the emotions of Insan, and without no doubt, I know they exist. I advise myself and the ummah, keep Allah in your hearts and in your house, note a place where Allah name is not mention in your houses or any room in your house, You inviting shayaṭin to your house and the empty rooms. Read the quran regularly in all of the rooms in your house and rooms. May Allah bless you all.

        i would like to share my personal story with you, i am muslim btw

        i have serious sleeping issues and have been a insomniac for 9 years and there were days i was not sleeping at all maybe around 2 hours a night.

        anyway due to my severe lack of sleep, Jinns were messing with my head at night and making me hear voices when i was trying to sleep around 3-4 AM in the morning. the voices were multiple it was usually mumbling and evil laughing constantly, the voices were always coming from the left side of my brain/ear region. so i was like enough is enough and i started to recite ayat al kursi inside my head and when i finished the sura the voice became less and then suddenly started to scream really loudly and stopped and did not come back, what happened did they die or were they hurt?

        one more thing i would like to add when i sleep for a few hours maybe 3 i just wake up without a reason and look at the wall and hallucinate and see writings on the wall which disapear after around 10 seconds,

        Salam alaikum! I often have sleep paralysis after fajr. And i do believe that this is shaytan's attack. I'm shocked why many muslims don't believe in this and refer it to some scientific explanation. First i experienced this few years ago but didn't know how to fight with it, later on i got information that in islam its so-called shaytan's attack. This is a weird and scaring condition. It can remain for few mnts but as soon as i read "AuthubiLlahi mina shaytani rajeem", it immediately disappears. Therefore, it proves the satan interference in our life. I used to read athkars before sleep and ayatul kursi and i don't get this condition at night alhamduliLlah. I thought that may be bcz of my sins i get this, i think that satans try to misguide muslims more than non muslims so they attack mostly believers. Thank you brother for creating this site where we can share our stories and discuss on this matter.

        I think I experienced sleep paralysis too and it was so scary! I was aware of my surroundings but I couldn't move neither could I say anything. I remember seeing a shadow over my head and a feeling of complete panic and dread. I tried to recite the kalma and then after I guess about a minute it just went away and I noticed I was shaking and I felt terrified. I don't know what it was but I just don't want to go through that again.

        Did you ever feel the same thing again ever?

        Gous Ahmed 3 years ago from Muslim Nation

        Again this is could be a type of Jinn playing with you trying to make you scared. Jinns can take many different forms, and a young woman in white is one of them. I wouldn't like to see them, and i hope i don't inshaAllah.

        Just make sure you do the prayers if you ever experience anything like this again.

        Years ago me and my friends used to go shooting near the lake in my town in the uk and the farmer once told us never to climb over a certain fence to shoot at foxes , rabbits and stuff anyway we understood why coz the land was uneven and weird lookin so anyway that night i went to my house to switch the heating on and i opened my back door to have a cigarette there are saw shiny green eyes looking straight at me i stared back in defiance to show i wasn't afraid but i was sweating so bad started to read ayatul kursi turned back inside my kitchen just about managed to close and lock the door. Couple of days later i was at work in the evening my wife was asleep in bed and she heard footsteps in the loft she git scared as no one else was in the house my brother came and searched found nothing so i mentioned this to my uncle in pakistan he done some checks spiritually and told me did u go to a wooded area with a lake coz it followed u from there and i told him yes i did so me my wife and sister read surah yassin 5 times in every room and everything stopped alhamdullilah. Since then ive had little encounters with jinn where they try to mess me about whilst im asleep such as pull the duvet and maje the light flicker make sounds in the corners of my bedroom but i fear only my creator like my father told me the first time round FEAR ALLAH not jinn. Allah akbar

        Its true when people say the hair on the back of your neck gies up got videos on my phone of shadowy figures lookin at me from my bedroom window. Since then iman has got stronger and stronger and the jinn has dissapeared

        Hello, Assalamuallaikum. You probably experienced a sleep paralysis as far as I know if ,what you wrote is true. I had similar experiences. I tried to find out the truth about these experiences through various sources. What came into my mind at first, without any doubt, is that the jinn or angels are responsible for this. Later, I found out that these phenomenons can be explained in medical science; extensive research is being conducted on dreams and sleep disorders. Human mind is complex and vulnerable to stress. Meditation is a powerful tool to fight everyday stress we face in our life. Praying Salah, reciting surah are different kinds of mediation that can bring down our stress level and bring peace in our mind. May be that's what Allah wants us to know about things that people of hundreds years ago didn't know about; what other better ways He has to tell ignorant like us to fight the evil of our mind by meditation, what other better ways do we have to meditate other then praying five times a day. Hope this will help you understand what had happened to you :)

But after I got married 5 months ago I've had same dreams and even scaryer once and one day I went to open my room so I can charge my husbands phone and it was locked I tried pushing the door over and over while pushing the door my body felt so weak and I knocked hoping my Husband is in side, I heared the door open with the key from inside and I opened the door but no one was inside so I never slept In the room and moved to a diff. Room and I went to sheikhs that read and can explain what's going on but they never told me anything and all I know is I have the eye cuz when he reads I would sweat a lot he has I have a very evil eye but I don't know what to do cuz non of the people I went to could explain what's happening to me.

        Early in the morning around 2:00ish, I felt my body being pressured and strangled to a point where I could not move. It was a cold night and had the blanket completed covered over me. My family was fast asleep. The pressure continued to be stronger and stronger to a point that I could not breath any longer. I tried to say the Kalima, the first time my tongue could not speak. I could not get past La Illah Ill Lal. . ., and even this was muffled, and second time the same. The third time I was able to complete it and screamed it at the top of my lungs with all the energy I had left. I felt that I could breathe again, and was sure I had woken up my whole family, but they were still asleep.

        Assalaam alaikum everyone.

        I need some help. I had a different experience but for me it was the most terrifying experience of my life.

        It was in a dream.

        All I remember is my mother calling me Into my brothers room saying "come here quick" (in urdu).

        When I entered she pointed at the window and I saw a white face with a frightening smile and yellow eyes. Immediately I thought it was a Jinn and I started screaming because I am terrified of them. I looked out of the room at the staricase and saw another inside my house at the top of the stairs.

        Both "Jinn" were looking at me.

        I can't remember much except I was being dragged down the stairs and the street by both of them.

        I read the kalima and anything else I could and they didn't stop. Then I just did anything else I could imagine for example hitting them, causing explosions and other things and nothing worked.

        I don't remember anything else.

        But since I have woke up I have been scared. I don't know if they actually were jinn in my dream but I know that it scared me more than anything else has in my life.

        Hey thanks for the response

        Yesterday I saw Jin in the window of my room ,the time was just after Fajr ,morning light became visible from window of the room as there are no curtains etc ,it's open and one can see outside clearly ,I just woke up after listening the azan ,but still laying on my bed I was watching that window and thinking something ,what happens I see a person coming from left of the window knocking the window a couple of times , and just ran away towards left ,the noise made by that was very loud .To my shock first I thought it was some thief before he knocked the window ,but I know it's Jin because at that time of the day it's impossible that someone can actually come towards the windows ,besides the events happening with me now a days also affirms that it was Jin I saw .This is the first time I saw a Jin in the form of human ,he still was like dark shadow with no visible facial features ,his height was medium to tall ,he was slim .One more thing is that ,there's a tree behind the window that is an old one and look so scary ,it falls on my window ,many crows live on that tree .I think that tree is also possessed by the Jins and these crows might be the Jin ?

        So watching Jin alive in the form of human first time fully conscious has changed my life .now I am really scared to sleep in that room again because I fear what more he might do next ,may be physically hurt me ?But I am still thinking of some queries that What was his purpose of knocking the door ?Why he revealed himself to me as human ?How can I get rid of them ?

        Salaam G Miah

        the first time is definitely worrying when it happens ... i'm glad you are safe and sound.

        whenever it happens to me I have never been in the state of panic ... i have always remained calm and recited Ayat-ul-kursi and i am released well before the end of the ayat, but i still complete it... once it felt like i was drowning in water when i tried to fight it... i have written a few accounts of it on this site.

        you seemed to have experienced 2 things at once ... one is called outer body experience and the other is called sleep paralysis (the english terminologies) ... you will find a whole range of hubs about these including my own... and you will find that they are very common. the outer body experience also can be induced by medication so maybe if you took any medication it could have enhanced the feeling.

        finally with regards to your outer body experience i would like to bring your attention to the Quranic verse ...

        Sura 39 - Az-Zumar : Verse 42

        "Allah fully takes away the souls (of the people) at the time of their death, and (of) those who do not die, in their sleep. Then He withholds those on whom He had decreed death, and sends others back, up to an appointed term. Surely, in this, there are signs for a people who ponder."

        Translation : Eng-Mufti Taqi Usmani

        The key here is FULLY.

        This also means that our souls can be partially extracted ... i have personally felt this when walking in the park. I could feel myself walking and i could feel a part of me walking around 20 yards behind me as well. what you felt is also partial but in a different context.

        Anyways, i'm just sharing what i know and think ... only Allah knows best what is true and accurate... we can only ponder.

        I wish you all the best ... if you have sandal wood incense sticks then light them up in the house and let the aroma spread ... it is not liked by the jinn therefore they leave that place.

        I also have a story to tell you which is happening to me right now .A couple of years ago when I was sleeping alone in my bed room I saw a shadow of child in front of me ,but I couldn't do anything and suddenly my body started to become heavy like someone putting weight on me ,then wearing and tearing my body ,I felt someone taking my soul from my body .Well that incident happened once .

        But now yesterday I was sleeping and again someone started to put weight on my body and this time I was sweating when I woke up ,I also heard noises of crying baby from the ceiling floor ,so out of scare I went to another room sleeping but the feeling of someone in my body was not going away and I could clearly understand that someone is trying to take control of my body .So in this room I sleep again and I see a bad dream of falling down ,again wake up .This was clear that someone is taking possession of my body and when I sleep ,I can clearly feel someone putting his influence around me.

        Please try to tell me what that thing is and what's the solution ,It is even now as I am writing to you putting weight on me .

I started praying, and after a while woke up. I prayed on my son and could see white mist or shadow arise from him. I was really mad about this. I think they must of came from our basement. my husband and I were down there that night for the first time drinking, at least that's what I think??? Why an innocent baby?? even though he was smiling in his sleep, I was very upset.

        Salaam, Jazakallah GMiah for sharing your experience and making me understand what's going on with me.

        I am Muslim... I believe in presence of Jinn...

        When i was in India it never happened to me but since i m in New Zealand from last one and half year, I really get weird experince.

        When I sleep n when my husband is next to me nothing happens to me but when he is off to work n if I sleep.... I feel like someone is holding me tight... Trying to get physical... Holding my legs so hard that i cant even move.... I know that I am awake but still feels like I am dreaming something bad.... I want to shout... Scream.... Open my eyes... Move ... Shake but I m helpless.. Then I recite Darud-sharif and repeatdly say La illaha illalah Mohmaduur rasullalah.... And then i can open my eyes...

        One day I had same experince when someone was holding me tight and I also saw black man who was very hairy and he was very scary sitting on my abdomen trying to get physical... After reciting prayers he was away but that really scared me off...

        But today aftr sehri i offered namaz... Read kitab n went to sleep n this time my husband was next to me within an hour of my sleep i had same thing happened this time he was holding my legs.. Sitting on me... N when i started reciting he even kept his hand on my mouth so that i can recite... However after lot of struggle i some how managed to recite and slowly he went off n then i opened my eyes...

        I always use to google about what dreams mean in Islam... But today as I got up with this experience again... I took my cellphone n decided to research on hadith n shaitaan... And finally i came to knew what is happening to me every single time....

        Mehzabeen scientifically it is Sleep Paralysis, but in Islam we believe that it is the work of Jinns.

        If you sleep in a certain way, you may be attacked by them, although they do it for fun and cannot harm us in any way.

        Read this link on Jinns and you will understand more about them.

        Assalamu alaikum,

        Thank you all for for posting your experiences here. Having read them, I have a question here:

        I am 29 years old muslim and this is the first time, I am reading namaz and observing roza. Yesterday, I read that surah yasin is the heart of QURAN and reading it before sleep would help one as all the past sins are forgotten. I couldn't read my isha on time as I dint know witr by I decided to read only fard and sunnat before sleeping (decided to offer witr before fazar) followed by recital of surah after everyone was asleep at home, I offered my isha prayer around 11:45 pm ( except witr) and sat down to read surah yasin around 12 midnight....initially my wudu got invalid while praying so i did wudu again and completed namaz but I was a little scared to read isha at that time( as it was 12 and the fear of jinns) but somehow managed to offer isha...but as i sat down to read surah yasin, I had this strange feeling that someone was behind me and i could feel some heat generating in my back ( even though the fan was on)...I didn't look back and continued to read the surah for sometime and completed it....after completion, I looked back and there was no was one scary experience but I got through it and decided never to read isha that morning over sehari, I was discussing the same with my family and my brother who is very orthodox and is knowledgeable in these matters also mentioned that he has strange experiences in that particular room where i was reading isha last night...actualy we don't use that room that I am wondering why I was scared and what that experience means....???

        And Waris, you don't have to be Muslim for a Jinn to attack you. You don't even have to be a Muslim to have a bad true dream.

        Gous Ahmed 4 years ago from Muslim Nation

        Yes Waris. I didn't just write this up from my head. I actually looked it up and asked many people and researched what it could be in 'Islamic perspective'.

        I understand that non Muslim scientists have other names and reasons for this, but i believe that it was a Jinn. You can believe what you want.

        What you experienced was just a typical Out of body experience. A lot of people expierence this just you have even if they are not muslim. The tight feeling in your chest wasn't you being choked, it is a normal thing that happens when you have an OBE. Look it up. It also ties in with sleep paralysis. I am a Muslim by the way.

        This experience you had occurs to people of all religions. Scientists call it sleep paralysis, but whether it is truly a medical phenomenon or something else is a subject for debate. Personally, I believe there are evil entities on the loose and whether you call them Jinn or demons is strictly academic. What happened to you happened to a friend of mine in a similar fashion, and he wasn't particularly religious. He woke up with dark, finger shaped bruises on his rib cage.

        Asalam aleikum

        first of all, I hear we should write in sha Allah like that, not together in one word, because the meaning changes in a way that would not please the Most High.

        secondly, i have been strangled three times before, and in each occasion, I realized the only one to turn to was Allah, the Most Merciful.

        here are my questions.

        in one occasion, i went to sleep without praying isha, and i felt a gentle push on my forehead. when i opened my eyes, i saw a lady wearing white and covered like a muslima in hijab. she told me wake up and pray. i was so incredibly sleepy. i went back to sleep, and the same scenario repeated itself two more times, and each time she pushed my forehead with more pressure than the previous times, but it was never painful. she was smiling at me, even giggling at times. her face changed shape to reflect the different ethnic groups dominant within the muslim majority countries, but her eyes were the same. after the third time, i eventually woke up, performed wudhu and prayed. i never saw her again. i guess she did her job. that was the only time in my life where i slacked in my salats so much that for nearly a month, i seldom ever prayed. i later learned that it is a sign of a spiritual disease. i saw three different raqis and they all said something different, one said its a jinn, another said you got sick because of evil eyes, and the last one said its voodoo. Subhana Allah.

        my other question is I used to hear voices all the time, even over the phone. i was so sure my phone was tapped, but later i was told it could have been either the jinn or the effect of witch craft. what does all these mean?

        Today 23/4/03, all happened acutally i'm a hard gamer if you know what i mean i play till 1 or 2 in the morning (i play with a bunch of friends) but on that day i log out of my account at 01:43 and at 01:46 i left my laptop half-opened and went to bed immediately as i was tried and also i have to go to college nor i did recite the kalima.I just don't know when did the 'nightmare' occur but all those symptoms u guys mentioned they did occur, scientists called it SP ( sleep paralysis ) , some says its the attack of jinns as u said my brother and in other page they says it isn't the attack of jinns that leaves me frustrated....AND YeAH i forgot something important on that attack i was flat on my back my face slighty facing to the left- i think o.O- and i dream about something i can't tell you cause i don't remember it but i know it was something bad i dreamed that i couldn't face the dream anymore.I fighted against that nightmare that i was having and then i opened my eyes...when i opened my eyes NOT WIDE and saw everything obscured which was strange actually my laptop's screen was on but why does the room is so dark,soon after i felt everything exactly as u described it and suddenly i hardly noticed if it was even a dark figure but i remember there was a hoody man facing me.I tried to move my hands but in vain i felt something holding my 2 arms and something on my chest, i didn't give up i fight again to move but again none was successful.But then i layed down still without moving and suddenly i felt a quick painful stab - pls excuse me for posting this, i didn't mean to say bad things - in my backside into it if you know what i mean i cant write the word.

        i don't understand why i'm the only one who felt that pain..

        some advices pls :(

        Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences. We all have different experiences, and there's one i had recently which involved me wanting to wake up to pray Fajr. I heard the alarm go off and i walked down stairs to do my wudu, but i wasn't sure if i did it or not. I was walking back upstairs to pray but as i was walking up one step at a time the stairs became longer and longer and when i looked up i couldn't see the end of the staircase. I kept on walking up and then managed to get to the top, but by the time i reached the top i actually woke and looked outside and it was very light.

        This is an example of how a Satan/Jinn can make someone miss their prayers. I was devastated and cursed satan all day. It was so real that i thought it was actually real.

        Anyway, i just thought i'd share something with everyone.

        Please contact your local Masjid via the means of their telephone number, email, letter or whatever there is in place for any information or advice. And most important of all, seek the help of Allah and refuge from satan's whispers.

        May Allah guide us all to the straight path and forgive our sins. Ameen.

        I was waking up ( I was laying on my left side) and a black cat tried to attack me but I swated it away with a book and it stood by my closet door and watched me however after I cleared my eyes it was just a black pair of pants... The book I used to swat it away I imagined.. Idk if any of this has to do with anything but I am currently pregnant my husband was sleeping next to me and about 20 minutes after my daughter came in to sleep with us. I am Muslim but I don't pray I'm still learning to speak Arabic so I can.

        well my grandad came for a couple of days and he slept in my older bros bed so my older bro had to go to my auntys house, he was half awake then suddnely some one from the behind put their arms over the shoulders and choked him. He couldn't breathe, he felt the arms and they were skinny women hands, he moved and it went away. He fell back to sleep again, he told my aunty then she said read surah yaseen. My brother mashallah knows it off byheart so he read it, and it didn't come bak. But it might be there again.

        the other story is that my cousin went out and she was walking then suddnley she stopped my uncle was with her said wats wrong. She said she saw a shadow. But not any normal one it was infront of her, and it wasn't sunny it was cloudy. Next day she was in hospital.

        I used to have this problem from when i was around 10 years to 15 years old until i spoke to a muslim scholar from egypt about this situation, he didn't tell me much all he said was to me that when this problem occurred that i should simply move my small muscles in my body such as rolling your eyes around, moving/wiggling your tongue and moving your fingers around. so the next time it happened to me i did as he told me to and it worked and i have NEVER experienced it again (praise be to Allah swt).

        I don't think you understand this topic enough. Allah has created everything, even evil things to rest us, and also jinns who live among us. If you read the Quran or English books about jinn you may learn a few things. It may be called sleep paralysis, but what causes it? Think about it my friend. ;)

        And for your information no one is advising anyone I leave their houses, read it properly and you will realise. You may be un-informed, but Allah has the door of ilm (knowledge) always open for anyone who wants to learn and understand Islam and the world around us.

        If you don't believe in the jinn then you don't believe in the Quran because the Quran has a chapter on jinns. Hence you are in doubt. May Allah place his peace and blessings upon you and the whole Muslim ummah. Ameen.

        This is not a Jinn attack, Jinn do exist but this condition has no relation to them. It is sleep paralysis.

        You should not unnecessarily frighten people my friend and advise them to leave their "haunted" houses and create all of the above drama before you try to learn more about the topic. be careful not to give the impression that Islam and Muslims are irrational and un-informed. Because we are the total opposite.

        Salam,I always have this expriances at nights and always its allah's names that protects you from the wicked jinn...I had one last night and as I wanted to open my mouth to say Authubillahi minal saitaani regim,Bismillahi rahmani rahim,I could not open my mouth as I use my will power I could feel my tongue being twisted.

        But as I forced myself I was able to say it and as I repeatedly say it I was getting relifed and then I started reading Iyatul kursiyu and then when I open my eyes I show it leaving the house...When I thought it was over another one came but before it could over power me I continued reading Iyatul Kursiyu and it quickly left....

        The most amazing thing is as I was sleeping in the after,some things came asking for forgiveness and that it was in serious pain but before I could say anything I wokeup to pray asir...

        Anyway to those who think its just sleep paralysis,I will like you to be aware of the fact that,any time it happens to muslims ,Its that name of the MOST GRACIOUS AND MOST POWERFULL THAT resues you...

        So we know it an evil force from the jinn kind that make you suffer inorder to weaken your imaan and get you lazy with your worshippings.

        I happens to muslims and especially those trying to get close to Allah in there thougts and actions...So all you need is to have is strong faith and will power and beleive that they have no power and that power belongs my GOD and your GOD ALLAH THE MOST POWERFULL AND ALL AWARE...

        May ALLAH protect us all salam

        I wanted to know whether my experience was a jinn encounter or not, and by your posts I saw that you know something about them.

        I have been having these weird experiences during the night, in which someone presses down on both sides of my head( on my ears), and screams, This could be sleep paralysis, but I do not seem to have difficulties in moving. And this screaming and discomfort disappears once I open my eyes, but when I close my eyes again after sometime this appears again. I am scared, this has stopped happening in the past few days, but I want to ensure that it doesn't return, Please if you could help me, it would be your utmost kindness

        Thank you Rahima for sharing your experience with us all.

        If you think that your nani's house doesn't feel right then i suggest you get an Imam from your local masjid to go and do some prayers. The other option is to read surah Baqara at her house regularly which will keep satan away.

        The best way to protect yourself from anything evil harming you is to purify your body by praying the Qul surahs, ie Qul Ya Ayu, Qul Hu Allah, Qul Awuzu Birrabbil Falaq, Qul Aquzu Birrabbin Naas. You read them all first in that order, then blow into your hands which you will hold as if your praying to Allah, then touch your whole body from top to bottom. This will protect you especially at night when you are asleep. It works like a shield against evil at night or day.

        Thank you for readign and leaving a comment. May Allah bless you too.

        Salam all. G miah after reading your story I have had similar experiences myself. Now I would say I don't have a strong imaan or neither do I have a weak one I try to read my prayers whenever I can.

        When im in my deep sleep the jinn or whatever it is will come and sit on me making my chest really heavy and hard to breath. Once I had seen a black figure floating across my room. I have also experienced my soul leaving my body and I was actually looking down at my sleeping body which was really freaky at the time and the only thing that goes through your mind is your gonna die. When these things happen I try to recite whatever come to my head i.e kalima, surahs from the quran. Coming from a bengali background the family automatically assume either your possessed or they don't believe you. So I decided to do a bit of research and came across your story.

        It has been happening for about two years or so. It mainly happens to me after I come back visiting my nan. You see my nan has bladder problems and shes always na-pak meaning dirty and is old and cant clean herself so that's why I do it. I am her carer and care for her. I feel that theres something present in her house and strange things have happened but wont go into details and I think its that jinn troubling me. Allah hu alim.

        Anyway just wanted to share that with you all. The only solution I see is pray your salah have a strong imaan nothing or no one can harm you. Stay blessed.

        Thank you
