I would just like to point out that I too face this and not only that..but feel a hand scratching the back of my kneck and I force myself to wake up many many times but I am unable too wake up until finally the hand scratching at the back of my kneck stops then I can wake up. Sometimes I feel such horrible pressure on me and unable to move and open my eyes even though I am awake..

Not only is that impossible, as all possible states of consciousness are controlled by the brain, so if they mind is awake then so is the body.

Then explain to me why i am awake, and my body cannot move! ?

I've had instances where I rolling around, eyes wide open fighting off something, this is not sleep paralyses !

I wouldn't say that myself either and it doesn't sound like sleep paralysis either.

Sleep paralyses is the attempted scientific explanation given to this phenomenon, it lacks in proof and even theory.

lacks proof??? what am I and many people out there?? even test sleep test have been performed.

There are many people out there who have and continue with this, including me!(although since becoming aware I haven't had any episodes) 

What you have read is the scientific opinion, and of course religion is not based on science. Science on the other the study to unravel the marvels of gods creation, even then most of what science is purely theoretical. It is not proven to this day whether an Atom exists or not !!  

And rain falling from the sky is not factual

I'm going on personal experience here and not necessarily an article and where there are evidence, what about you?

It was asked if others had experience, so since I had I talked and gave what it is and some more information, it is not just that article, I gave other resources that talks more and with causes.

I guess firstly you have to believe in god to have some understanding of Jinn’s or demons.

just a guess of yours not fact!

I do believe in God.

Rain is mentioned in the Qur'an, Sleep Paralyses is not !!!

Thousands of scientific studies into all the ayats of the Qur'an have revealed that no person is able to come up with a single ayat that is exactly the same as one in the Qur'an. And this will never happen, why? because it says so in the Qur'an, like it there are ayats on rain ! 

It seems obsurd that since you became aware of this scientific phenonmenon you no longer experience "Sleep Paralyses", if only we could cure the world in this way !!! I'm sure in this case you are a medical marvel, perhaps you should donate your body to scientific study. ( I have very little time, else I would go into this subject a little more, perhaps later, since right now I am at work !)

I'm sorry, I'm not having a go at you, but it appears you are attacking my beliefs, since in the Qur'an Jinns are mentioned frequently so not to believe in Jinns, is not to believe in the All Mighty.

All I can say it is impossible for the mind to be awake and the body to be asleep. These studies always involve people who suffer from such episodes, I know how results can be portrayed, I studied Bio-Psychology for 4 years, and believe me when the mind is awake the body is awake !

Bluesun, it's not really that absurd, it's probably a manifestation of the widely accepted psychosomatic principle that the mind can have a direct affect on the body.

psy·cho·so·mat·ic   Audio pronunciation of "Psychosomatic" ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (sk-s-mtk)
adj.

  1. Of or relating to a disorder having physical symptoms but originating from mental or emotional causes.
  2. Relating to or concerned with the influence of the mind on the body, and the body on the mind, especially with respect to disease: psychosomatic medicine.

Thankyou for looking into the dictionary for Psychosomatic for me !

Lack of faith in the Almighty Creator is one of the theories of psychological disorders leading to psychoneurosis and psychoses.  This can be understood from the knowledge of the mechanisms of development disorders.

Man is constantly exposed to stress conditions.  It is not possible to avoid stress in life.  One tries to adjust to the stresses of life by methods which he has learned as well as by the inherited tendencies of reactions to stress.  The resul of this stress adaptation interaction is a STESS REACTION.  The effect of this stress reaction will depend upon the severity on stress and on the power of adaptation of the individual to stress.  If stress is mild an dpower of adaptation is good, the reaction results in an adjustment which is beneficial to the individual.  However, if the stress is severe and adjustment poor, it results in major mental disorders (psychosis).

A person who has the faith in Allah the Alkmighty and He is with Him, has an intense moral support which will sustain him in th emost adverse situations in life.

The hadith mention extensively of the importance of the virtues of remembrances of Allah and the Holy Quran bears a testimony to it in the following words:

BEHOLD ITS MERIT THAT REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAH BESTOWS SATISFACTION OF HEART

Maybe Sleep Paralyses has it's foundations in psychoneurosis??

It is logical to conclude that believing in one Allah as preached by Islam provides the real moral support as needed in life and bestows satisfaction of heart.
