Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon that affects you and that you try to fight? You are in the right place. This phenomenon has different names in different countries and faiths. Modern medical science calls it sleep paralysis. Islam Sleep Paralysis: What causes?
Almost in every house there is one or more people suffering from this problem. Most people do not pay attention to the cause of this disorder during sleep. It has also been noticed that a person experiencing this trauma hides it from others and it makes him mentally and physically ill.
However, it is important to take the necessary measures, as these nocturnal attacks are common to several religious cultures.
Before providing you with Islamic solutions for sleep paralysis, we will see why the scientific thesis is debatable and what attacks "Boughattat" led against different religious cultures.
At the end of cet article, you will know the solutions that Islam gives to overcome sleep paralysis and no longer have sleep disturbed by these nocturnal attacks for the rest of your life.
Islam Sleep Paralysis: The Scientific Thesis
According to science, it is a sleep disorder that occurs either when you fall asleep (hypnagogic paralysis) or when you wake up (hypnopompic paralysis). This disorder prevents you from moving although you are perfectly aware of what is happening to you.
Researchers have two different opinions on this subject. According to the first group, a person experiences attacks of sleep paralysis due to the strong repression of various desires to have a happy life.
On the other hand, the second group says that sleep paralysis is the result of a mental stress and various worries of life.
Medical science says that sleep paralysis occurs when the brain tells the body to relax and the body goes into a state of near paralysis. This occurs by falling into deep sleep and then abruptly coming out of sleep during the deep sleep stage. At this time, our brain and our body lose contact for a few seconds to a few minutes and the person in this condition has the feeling that a ghost or an evil spirit attacked him.
Few scientists raise the fact that sleep paralysis sometimes results in death. There are different opinions on this issue. Some experts say that sleep paralysis prevents the body from moving for a short time and has no connection with death.
The limits of scientific theses in the face of the phenomena of religious sleep paralysis
The Case of the Hmong
Some sleep experts believe sleep paralysis can kill a person. They provide evidence of human history. In the 80s, people from the Hmong tribe moved to the United States. The Hmong people generally live in China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. It was a group of 117 immigrant men. Of 117 men, 116 died while sleeping in camps associated with these immigrants. Their age was about 33 years old. They were in good health and no cases of illness were reported.
A force was killing these Hmong men in their sleep. Since doctors could not find the cause of death, they referred to these deaths as Sudden Unexpected Night Death Syndrome. It was decided to work in depth on this issue. During the research, it was found that these 116 men died due to their belief in night spirits.
It was also found that the Hmong believed that if they did not pray before sleeping and perform their religious rituals according to traditions, they would not be protected by their gods and evil spirits will then come to harm or kill them.
Native Americans: A people mentally tortured by the Djinns?
Native Americans have recounted nocturnal attacks over the centuries. Although they were not of the Muslim faith, certain facts are troubling and agree to 100% to Jinn attacks affecting Muslims while they sleep.
They relied on their patron god, Iktomi, who taught them how to make the dream catcher, an object which, according to legend, prevents sleep paralysis. The tribes of these peoples could then sleep in peace for centuries.
Although this has no connection with Islam beforehand, several dozen testimonies on Yabiladi and Ummah, forums dedicated to Muslim community relate the effectiveness of this object to prevent night attacks. The effects are increased tenfold for children.
Sleep Paralysis: Causes According to Islam
To answer quickly, sleep paralysis in Islam is caused by jinn coming to torment you and preventing you from moving and keeping you in a state of terror.
We find many prayers of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his offspring) which must be recited before sleeping to protect you from the invisible demons of the night.
It is a fact that physical health has a great connection with spiritual health. But it is also important to note that sleep paralysis is very common among Muslim people,
Ibn e Al Mansoor in his book Lisan Ul Arab writes that Jathoom is an evil dream that comes at night during sleep. The entity that attacks the person during sleep is called Jathoom.
Ibn e Seena in his famous book Al Meezan writes that this phenomenon is called throat choking and in Arabic language it is called Jathoom and Al Nendlan.
It is a belief in our society that no entity can harm humans. If we take it as a fact, then what is our position on the prayers of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his offspring) which are for protection from the harms of the unseen creations?
In the Quran, we find these words at the beginning of Surah Al Falaq: “I seek refuge with the Lord of the dawn, And from the evil of darkness when it sets in". These verses prove that some harmful entities exist in the darkness of the night of which we have no knowledge.
In Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, the Companion of the Holy Prophet Abu Qatada (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him and his offspring) said that good dreams come from Allah and bad dreams come from Satan.
Sleep paralysis also has a strong connection with a terrifying dream, so we can say that the Sleep paralysis is the work of some evil entities who want to harm a person.
