Al Salam Alaykum Brothers. I am a recent revert and I confidently believe that I am the target of several jinn both within me and around me. I have been trying to focus more during salah by focusing on the meaning of my words and praying slowly.
Today I attempted to focus on a visualization of Allah's direction as to feel closer to Allah and commit my prayer to him. I first focused up in the sky while visualizing myself up there as well as to mentally feel my body close to Allah. Then I remembered, while I was in sujood, that we are infront of Allah when praying so I attempted to focus infront. That was when I was met with an incredibly strong fear in my chest. It was the "afraid of being alone in a dark room" fear, or the "can't move in bed because of sleep paralysis" fear. I immediately stopped focusing in that direction and finished my Salah. Brothers, can anyone please help explain to me what this fear was? Was I tapping into a strong jinn that was infront of me at the time (Side note, there was a mirror in front of me that was facing, not directly towards me, but to the side) or was I focusing on Allah's energy, causing the jinn inside me to create this reaction?
