Brothers and Sisters

Please share your true stories or stories that you have heard of above categorized creatures.

And if any of shia chat member came across one, how did he/she cope with the situation?

What were your weapons spiritually?

Or

What is your plan of action if you come across any creature as such?

To be honest this is not a joke but I have heard that if we take our clothes off in front of 'female demon' especially they run away.

There is no sense to it but this is what people in villages believe or maybe in cities too.

Can we have someone shed some light on it too?

Walaikum Salam,

When I was about seven years old I distinctively recall seeing a white and radiant woman standing next to my bed in the middle of the night. I didn’t feel scared at all, but to the contrary I found her presence to be extremely calming and reassuring. I closed my eyes and went to sleep. When I relayed this event to my mother the next day she said it was a dream. I remember that image so vividly even today and I refuse to believe that it was dream.

Even now when I close my eyes I sometimes sense that someone is standing next to me. It can be very unnerving at times. When I am half asleep or about to drift off I can hear the floor boards creaking, muffled sounds of conversation and once not so long ago, I very clearly heard the sound of bells jingling. From the corner of my eye I sometimes feel that I have seen someone but when I glance over no one is there. 

My parents know about all this and they now believe me. They just think that I can see/sense things that others can not. 

I have no way of explaining this to others, but all I know is that it is not ‘all in my head,’ as a lot of people will probably think. To be honest with you, I’ve never even mentioned it to my husband because I know he’d just laugh it off.

I haven’t read any special prayers for this or done anything about it. I’ve just accepted it as a part and parcel of my life.

If anyone could shed some light on this phenomenon from an Islamic perspective I would really appreciate it.

I have an experience with jinn and black magic going back 14 years, I hear people talking in hallway and when I open my door no one is there!

And I some time think I did something and didn't or vice vese. So I can relate to your topic, I heard you recite sura al kahf,sura nas,sura ,sura al falaq

It happens.

Don't worry

Maybe a Jinn likes you and seems as it is a Good Jinn or Jinni as they do not interfere negatively in your day to day life and do not possess you (getting inside you).

They are like air so when you say bells jingling I know it is true.

Does it get cold too?

As salaamun aleikum brother, 

I first want to say that you tagged me in another post, but I am not able to respond to it until a certain book that was shipped to me on Friday arrives in the mail. I'm waiting for that book to arrive because the question you and asked is directly related to a direct quote from Allama tabatabai and I want to provide that to you in the other post but not until the book comes so I do not misquote him. I just didn't want you to think I was ignoring your tag, and i want to make sure I answer appropriately and accurately as possible.

Regarding this question, right off the top of my head, the experience that comes to my mind was something that happened back in the late 90s/ early 2000s,

I worked at a feed store where we dealt primarily with selling animal feed as well as some livestock, mostly Birds chickens pigeons,turkeys, ducks, geese, peacocks, things like that.

There was this lady that used to consistently come in like once a week. She was in her mid-to-late fifties and would always come accompanied by this young guy in his twenties. They would both be dressed in all-white, and they would only ever buy male white pigeons or white roosters. I didn't know much about her at the time, but once i asked her, "hey Grace, howcome you only buy male white birds when you come i here and you never ever buy feed for them???" And she said: "I am not going to tell you, and you will never know."  I was like :/  

Anyway, i found out from another person that worked there that she was a priestess in a religion called Santeria, and that these white male birds were being used as sacrifices to spirits:/ From that point on, i wasnt comfortable catching the birds for her when she shopped at our store. I didnt look further into the religion at the time,but did so years later, ojt of sheer curiosity.

Fast forward to like 3 years ago, im now waaay into my time as a Muslim convert...One day, i decided to stop by my old work and say hi to the people that still worked there..i loved that job, favorite job of all my life, and its just down the street from my familys farm. Anyhow, as i was there talking with my X coworkers, and  guess who comes in??

Grace:/

She comes straight up to me, very nicely, and with a big smile, and starts talking to me. She didnt do anything overtly bad, but i sensed something, i dont know...Insincere? I dont know the word for it. Anyhow, i had a VERY unsettling feeling inside, almost as if my spirit had been "touched" or something, and not in  a good way. I was hecka creeped out..I remember excusing myself from the situation, reciting some Quran, and just getting out of there.. 

Now, i dont want to say anything "bad" about her or another religion, but my experience with her this last time around was nothing other than unpleasant, which doesnt really prove anytjing other than an emotional reaction.

Here is a little info re Santeria, however, i dont know how honestly accurate  it is.I am posting this at the expense of doing what secular society often does to Muslims, which isnt fair. If you require more info, then maybe use some of the  keywords mentioned below to do further research.

Santeria is an Afro-Caribbean religion that developed from the Cuban slave trade. It is also called La Regla Lucumi and the Rule of Osha. Santeria means "the worship of the saints." The religion is centered on African traditions and has some elements of Christianity. It is an oral tradition. The exact number of Santeria followers is unknown.

History of Santeria

Santeria developed in Cuba by Africans from Benin and Nigeria who were sent to Cuba because of the slave trade. They mixed their Yoruba religious traditions with elements of the Catholic faith of the plantation owners who were trying to convert the enslaved Africans. The Africans accepted some of the Christian traditions, but mainly adhered to their own religion. Thus, Santeria was created. It was a secret religion for decades, but has since revealed itself. Santeria is most popular in Cuba, but has spread to other countries especially since the 1959 Cuban Revolution. In the past, Santeria was regarded a religion of the uneducated and poor in the Caribbean, but now it also has a middle-class professional following in countries like the United States. The revolutionary Cuban government was critical of Santeria at first, but eventually started to tolerate the religion.

Santeria Beliefs

Santeria encourages building relationships with orishas or spirits that are manifestations of God or Olodumare. Orishas help people throughout their daily lives. They also help people reach their fates which have been pre-planned by Olodumare. In turn, people must worship orishas so that the spirits would keep on existing, because orishas are not immortal. The Roman Catholic elements of Santeria are associated with the belief in Catholic saints and symbols. Saint Barbara in Santeria is connected to fire and lightening.

Orishas can possess a priest and during a ceremony the community can share in the experience. Since priests can be possessed by orishas, they have certain powers like predicting the future by using coconut halves, nuts, or shells. A senior male priest, a babalawo, can predict the future by using an ekwele chain. Santeria priests also provide support to the sick. They have a wealth of knowledge on the medicinal properties of herbs, holy water, and natural elements, as dictated by Catholic and African belief systems.

Santeria Customs

Followers of the religion often wear white as a symbol of purity. It is also customary for Santeria followers to partake in various rituals in order to stay in touch with orishas. Santeria rituals include engaging the orishas through dancing, eating, singing, drumming, and more. A bembê is an example of a ceremony that welcomes the orisha to join in the festivities. The rituals of Santeria can take place at a home with altars or at a hall which is properly decorated. If the orisha possesses a person, the individual starts dancing dramatically and shares messages from the orisha with others in the community. One of the major forms of worship to ensure the survival of orishas is animal sacrifice. Animals are sacrificed as food for the orishas, who only take the blood while humans eat the meat.

In sha Allah i have not caused harm,offended or misguided anyone with this post.

@Aflower SUBHANNALLAH, THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME WHEN I WAS FOUR! My mom believed me, alhamdulilah, and kept me home the next 3 days. I really dont know why. She said it was an angel, but Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى knows. Amazing how your description couldnt have been any more similar to mine. I just went to sleep as well.

She also recalls  when i was small, she would peek in on me in my room, when i was in my crib and said it appeared as if i was communicating with something else in the room. I dont remember this, though. I remember as a kid, she told me that when we are young children, that the barrier between this realm and the other Realms is "thinner" and they are not as hidden from us as they are the more  we age, that we are more open to them as small chilren.

This one time, the lights kept flickering at night in Iraq in our hotel, we got so damn scared because the dogs started barking outside and they would whimper, my uncle went outside I don't know how he had the courage to do that but he did and he came back running into the room, said he saw something big and dark. we all read Ayatullah kursi at the same time, and then the lights came back on and everything was normal

I am rather undisclosed on the matter personally. I do believe in Jinn naturally as a Muslim but there is an area of distinction that I don't know is usually made by Islamic scholars on the matter.

The distinction in mind, is the question of: what is and what isn't jinn-related? (like Sleep Paralysis) and what the Quran and Hadtih say on the matter? 

 

I have read a lot of superstitious hysteria about this topic in various places (when online, it tends to be our facebook Sunni brothers/sisters - well, when I had a facebook account) where instead reassurance in Allah should be far more favored (by such people).

My grandmother is known for her honesty, and she told everyone that one night she saw a witch grinding her teeth, and then the witch suddenly disappeared when my grandma told her to leave.

Honestly this story always freaks me out because my grandma is soo honest and all of a sudden she just told this story with terror on her face.

Sleep paralysis due to jinn, possibly the worst thing that happened to me. Couldn’t sleep it would lay on my chest every night around or a little bit before fajr. If I was able to make it go away for a little and sleep, it would still be there breathing down my neck and there was still light outside. It was so hard to breathe and the usual that comes with sleep paralysis Whenever I would invoke gods name or a Surah,it would scream with me and make it so I couldn’t even hear what I was saying. My mother suggested I say Lahawla Wala quwata Illa billah aliyun Azeeem but this never made that thing go away. The screams were dark and low and very loud. So I made a habitual ritual to do Tasbee Fatima and say Surah ikhlaas and salwaat as many times as I could. After 6 months of the torture I was finally able to make that monster go away. 

Surah ikhlaas is the answer to everything

My suggestion is to recite Surah Iklaas with the internet that they do not bother you and leave you alone. You don’t want bad jinns attaching to you. 

good jinns do not bother humans at all...so you might want to reevaluate that their intentions could be something else, or maybe you have the natural ability to pick up on jinn interactions, they have lives too so I guess it’s not entirely impossible

I don’t think Fairies are meant to exist, but I know jinns are sometimes seen by some people or in certain places since we have Hadiths about it. 

I think everyone who sees witches, fairies, etc. are just seeing variations of jinns. 

Jinns are strange creatures. Nothing scary, just strange. I’m not going to talk about my personal experiences with them.

Not yet got the opportunity to meet female demons & witches! But I am certainly interested in watching them and let me assure you that I will not undress myself for getting rid of these creatures which are the product of human mind. 

As for Jinn, I can sense their presence. They never disturbed me and I never challenged them.

I can relate to this statement. Its a very interesting feeling, to sense that "youre not alone" in a room, or even in an outside area,l. That  has been my experience only once, but inside the house or other buildings, many times..and the feeling just comes out of nowhere for me. Like, all of a sudden, im just "aware" that im not alome anymore.

Strange feeling indeed.
