Knocking On Window Saying Let Me In


This is a personal experience. I am now 17 years old, I was 12/13 at the time of the incident.

I was sleeping in the spare bedroom as I couldn't sleep in my own bedroom due to the attic being built. Around 3am I heard a knock on the window. I ignored it thinking it was my imagination. Two minutes later there was another knock, this time I heard a voice saying, "Mohammed, open the door." I thought to myself, "What's this?" I ignored it. This time the knocking got heavier and the voice got deeper, almost as if it was shouting, saying open the door we are here let us in. I felt cold and scared so I didn't move. Two minutes later there was a large bang and a scream.

My brother, who was also in the room, was asleep. I woke him up and asked him if he heard the bang and I told him what happened, but he didn't believe me. At this age I don't see it as scary, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what it might have been. Could it have been a dream or my imagination?

A week after this incident I remember waking up and needing the toilet, but I had seen someone enter the bathroom so I waited for them to leave. I heard the flush and I was looking towards the bathroom but after 10 minutes of watching I didn't see anyone leave the bathroom, so I went to check and to my surprise the bathroom was empty. It felt really cold so I just used the bathroom and left. I felt very uneasy that night I couldn't sleep and I kept seeing figures from the corner of my eye and I kept hearing footsteps but I couldn't really see anything.

Anyone know what it might be? Feel free to comment all thoughts and comments will be appreciated. It's not really scary but I just wanted to share my experience with you all. Thank you for reading.

All I am aware of is if it wasn't an actual person trying to come in, that some spirits have to be invited inside the home and are unable to get in, thus the knocking. Glad you didn't open it.

at sharingiscaring...really? I have a few 12 year olds / early teens in my family. I can sit and have a in depth conversation about multiple subjects with them all, and I know for a fact they know to call the emergency services whenever needed. I would agree with your comment if we were talking about a 2 year old, but 12/13 years old, I would be more worried if they didn't think to call the police.

Very scary... Would hate to have that happen to me. Also [at] Griff, I don't think many 12 year olds would think of calling the cops.

I don't understand why you didn't raise the alarm and call the police. Especially when someone was there knocking your window and calling your name? Perhaps someone was outside with a big stick bashing your window, and calling? Just an idea?

Knocking is a way of communication of jin to human... It can be just travelers passing by... If any other events do let me know might be able to help
