Before I tell you about my experience, I need to note that I am a teenager, but that does not mean this experience will be a fraud. I request people to take my story into account because I need help.
My name is Taufiq and I am a 16 year old Muslim. I am also a science student and I prefer logical explanations. You might think I am crazy but I am also interested with the paranormal, and I try to bring about logical explanations with what I see, hear, smell or feel.
I'm from Bangladesh, and like most citizens there, I moved into the city from the countryside. But every year my entire family would have a reunion back there in the village. Our village houses were built near a place where superstitious people with their strong beliefs would actually entertain me with their stories. There was also an old graveyard half a kilometer away from where I stayed.
When I was 12, we went to the village for the reunion and would stay there for a week or so. We would go out and roam around the countryside for a little sight seeing. On the second night, the full moon lighted our way. We were back to the village after the sight seeing. Just after we all entered the houses, one of my mischievous cousins poked me from behind and ran outside. Me being the sporty kid ran after him, he was younger than me and he was going towards the grave yard laughing.
I told him to stop, in a serious manner, as I found grave yards quite scary that time. So he stopped and as we were about to leave. A strong cold gust of wind seemed to hit us although it was mid summer. I did not feel comfortable, so I took my cousin and picked up my pace.
Before we got any further, I had the strong curiosity to look back. That was when I saw this thing. I don't how to explain. Far away, beside the small pond near the graveyard, there appeared to be a coconut tree which I never noticed before. There were coconut trees in other places around the pond but not there. And under that was standing this tall white figure. It was foggy and it looked like its face was covered with its hair. The best way I can explain is that, it kind of looked like the girl from "The Ring", but not as scary. I began to feel the temperature dropping and I felt my curiousness fading. I did not let my cousin see that thing, we just ran back to our house.
The next morning I took a couple of my cousins to investigate, I just told them we were playing. It was day so I had the courage to go to that spot where I saw the figure under the tree. When we got there, I was shocked. One of my cousins said, "What's wrong? You look like you just saw a ghost." Not exactly. What I saw was the coconut tree stump on that same spot, where I saw the coconut tree last night! It was as if the tree was cut down! Which I was pretty sure it wasn't. The center part of the tree stump looked quite rotten or looked like old wood. It was obvious to say that it was cut down quite a long time ago. I didn't say a word; I just tried to join my cousins having fun.
The rest of the nights in the village, I couldn't sleep. The slant roof was made of metal sheets which sounded like it was being scratched and knocked. The window near me had metal bars; I could hear some grinding noises there. The moment I would wake up one of my cousins, the sounds would just vanish. Gladly the week was over and I returned to the city. Since then I never attended the reunion until now, and for years to come.
Now I am sixteen and I have been interested in the paranormal as I grew up. But I feel like this belief of paranormal things triggered something. From 16th April 2010, during the night when I am half asleep, I would always hear something outside my room. My bedroom door is always closed; it sounded like something heavy would run up stairs into the hallway and throw itself at my door. It's been happening frequently almost every night! Initially I was so scared, but now it's so irritating and I can't sleep. Still today, I have only been hearing things but never had visual or physical contact with whatever it is. I learned in this site that it's called poltergeists.
NOTE: I noticed whatever sounds that took place, always seemed to come from outside of any room I slumbered. It would never come from inside my room.
Can anyone please help me? How can I get rid of this thing? It is ruining my concentration for my yearly academics, and I kind of have a future to worry about. And please don't bring about things like Ouija boards or stuff like that. I am a strong believer of Allah and I am a Muslim. And it's written in the Qur'an that any attempt of spiritual contact to the other dimension would take a person directly to hell, no questions asked.
What should I do? Please help.
