Jinns and Angels are real
As Muslims, we do have faith in Jinns and Angels. We now that Jinns and humans have been made by Allah Almighty to live on Earth. Both shall be held accountable for their deeds. Just as there are some bad people, there are Jinns who are not very kind.
Jinns have been bestowed with special powers which are not given to human beings. But one thing that we all shall bear is that humans are the superior creation of Allah (Ashraf-al-mukhluk) and thereby we shall not fear them. Recommended: 7 lesser known Facts about Jinns
What special powers does Jinn Al-Kaboos have?
Today, I am going to share the powers of a jinn known as Al-Kaboos. My intention here is not to frighten you, as I have already told you that we humans are superior to them, but the purpose of the post is to create awareness among the Muslims.

Al-Kaboos is a Jinn that has the ability to attack one while one is asleep. If you are asleep and feel that you are getting suffocated and someone or something is being pushed on you which is not allowing you to breathe and then all of the sudden you wake up trying to catch up your breath, then you have been attacked by Al-Kaboos.
The jinn tends to strangle you while you are asleep. The medical science has claimed that such a phenomenon is known as “sleep paralysis”. Yet according to Islamic teaching, this is an attack by Al-Kaboos.
How to make sure you are not attacked by Al-Kaboos?
There are indeed certain measures which we can take to avoid the attack. The best way is to sleep according to the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet PBUH.
Here is a list of Sunnah that we shall perform before sleeping:
- Sleep in the state of ablution (wudu)
- Offer all the obligatory salah before sleep
- Clean and dust the bed before sleeping on it
- Recite Subhan Allah 33 times
- Recite Allahmdulliliah 33 times
- Recite Allah-o-Akbar 34 times
- Recite Surah Al-Mulk
- Recite the Surah Al-Ikhlas, Al-Falq and Al-Nas
- Sleep on your right-side
Important to note
A persistent condition where you feel being attacked in your sleep is a medical syndrome for which you shall seek medical assistance. This particular syndrome is called sleep paralysis. Whether it is Jin Al-Kaboos or sleep paralysis, this feeling is quite frightening.
