    • Wasalaam Sonia..
      Anything that u see in a dream that frightens you is from the shayateen.. What you experience is know as sleep paralysis scientifically but we believe them to be the shayateen.. Make sure you recite the duas of sleep daily before sleeping and also that ur in a state of wudhu when u go to bed. Recite your daily morning and evening azkaar. Try reciting surah Baqarah once in three days and also the verses of ruqya. InshaAllah it will get better. And continue ur duas..

  9. Asalamulakum
