Assalam o alaikum (may peace be upon you)
Before starting the story let me excuse for any grammatical errors as English is not my native language.
A little background: My family and I live in a house that belonged to my grandfather but before that it belonged to his grandfather so it's an old house but it was rebuilt by my father in the 90s and being so old there also have been some sudden deaths including children. As of now we are five family members and I'm the youngest of all.
I have always been a firm believer in the paranormal due to some personal experiences of my childhood. The experience I'm going to share today happened in probably January or February 2022.
Now the actual story, it was maybe 3am at night, I was sleeping when I had a sleep paralysis for the second time. I saw a tall black thing standing near my bed on the side of my feet, it was tall, thin and very very black and I don't know how but I knew it was a male. It had white holes where the eyes were supposed to be. I have a small blue bulb on in my room at night whose light is enough to make out every thing in the room but this thing was so dark that I couldn't see anything except for it's outline. I tried my best to free my self from the paralysis but it didn't help. Then I started reciting Ayat ul kursi (It's a Quranic dua) in my heart and then... I don't remember what happened next... I think I just blacked out because later when I woke up that thing was not anywhere in the room and all was normal and I felt that it was just a dream.
I'm not sure if I saw it in real or dreamt about it but the fear was real and I had never seen a ghost before. In the morning, I told mama about it and she believed me but couldn't do anything. Sorry I forgot to mention one thing that while this thing was standing and looking at me there were different voices going on in my head. I don't remember the exact words but they told me that this thing meant harm to me (I didn't tell my mother about it).
After a few days I completely forgot about it and I just shrugged it off and after that night I recite a set of prayers so that I won't be haunted at night and thankfully it has stopped. But the reason I'm sharing this experience is beacause a few days ago I read a story from somewhere else which was very similar to my experience and that was the time I remembered my experience and those voices that told me that the thing was going to hurt me. I just feel sickened when I think about it.I've not told it to anyone but I want your thoughts on it. Is it possible that this creature was not evil but something less threatening? I've been very disturbed but I wasn't sure if I should share it here but I couldn't resist.
Thanks for bearing my poor vocabulary and reading my story. Every thing mentioned above happened in real and I didn't make anything up by myself. I know it was a bit long hope it didn't bore you.
I would share further experiences if you want me to.
Thank you so much ❤️
