A month ago my dad had gone to Jamat so mom was sleeping all alone. While sleeping in the middle of night , she felt like my younger brother called her out and hugged her tightly from back in fear of something. She turned to ask my brother what had happened. And she saw no one was there. She got very scared. And didn’t sleep again that night. After which she has a fear to sleep alone when my daddy goes to jamat. Kindly let me know if it’s due to spirit or jinn and if something has to be done or read.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Your mother should read Ayatul Kursi three times after each salah with durood 3-3 times before and after and blow over her hands and pass her hands over her body wherever they reach. Also she should go to bed in the state of wudhu and read the dua of sleeping and lie on her right side.

Allah knows Best!
