What is sleep paralysis ?

Just wondering

Report as

Sleep paralysis is TRYING to wake up but you can't...it's like you're dreaming and in your dream you are falling off a high building and you are struggling to wake up but you can't.
there's a way to stop it... it requires a religious belief...I can explain if you want :)

Well I'm Muslim so we really now alot about these stuff...we believe that there's a demon who comes to you when you sleep and gives nightmare and sleep paralysis but we also now how to stop him...in the holy Quran there's a verse when you say it before you sleep no demon or anything will harm you...that verse is called the verse of the chair...trust me I get a lot of nightmares but when I read it there's absolutely nothing...we believe that when you read it an angle will guard you till the morning :)

It is terrifying! You wake up and it's like "holy cow i can't move" and then you pass out from fear. Tehe
