Sleeping incorrectly

Q: When I sleep, I become paralysed and I can’t move my body. I feel like something is pressing on me. Some say it is some scientific thing but I know it is a jinn because the moment he releases me, I read some verses and release it in the air and it stops. What can I do to kill it?


A: Don’t worry about it. It is no jinnat. It just exhaustion. Check your posture when sleeping. Try your best not to sleep flat on your back.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
