Do ghosts really exist?
The quest for the truth about ghosts has haunted mankind for centuries. While science has refuted all such existence, day to day experiences of people encountering such figures still pose a big question to many.
IN THIS 21ST CENTURY when people are living in top-notch epoch that is the technically advanced society, if you talk of “Ghost” very few people will believe you and your unscientific notion. They shall easily say that there is no scintilla of truth in it. Being from an educated family it is hard to believe in ghosts. As per science ghosts do not exist.
 
However, in Islam there is a concept of Satan and jinn. In this regard psychology says that when a person is obsessed about a particular thing, he is bound to think about it most of the time. An image form is formed in the mind and is unintentionally transferred to the subconscious mind; this sometimes leads to people perceiving objects. As soon as they are back from subconscious mind the image of the object disappears and consequently they fear and claim that there is a ghost. But some events and experiences compel you to think twice on the subject.
 
This particular event happened when I was 18 years old and had completed 10+2 examination from Bihar Education Council Patna. I was waiting for my results so that I could get admission in college. One day I was returning home from market late at night. As usual almost all villagers were sleeping and the dogs were barking in the dark of the night.
 
While walking, I suddenly felt that someone is following me closely. I ignored and proceeded forward towards my destination without thinking about “ghost” or any such thing. But my thoughts went in the wrong direction, and I started to remember the childhood ghost stories and different types of horror stories narrated by my grandmother. I was surprised when I took a look to confirm whether I was being followed? There about twenty feet tall with white dress and white beard person was standing behind me. I could understand what is happening with me. I had two options either fight or escape but I fell down and lost my consciousness. I had never seen something like it before.
 
It was my first experience. I felt some one was carrying me but who was that is a mystery for my parents and me. Thereafter time-to-time I felt pain in my stomach and my parents took me for consultations to renowned doctors of AIIMS New Delhi. But my condition remained unchanged. There was no sign of any improvement.
 
Being the elder son, I was really worried about my health and future. During this period many people suggested my parents to meet mullah or Pandit for my treatment, initially my father was not ready to take me anywhere. But every parent especially mothers are more concerned for their children, so she could finally convince my father, and he agreed for the child’s sake, to go to a mullah. I don’t know what helped, the healing by the mullah or some other factors but by the grace of God, I am completely cured and now am in excellent condition. I must mention here though that the mullah did not take a single penny.
 
This incident in my life has made me start believing that there are abstract things like ghost Satan and jinn in this world. So, I think ghosts do really exist, I don’t know about you!

I was a missionary in Sadalia Missouri in the 1970's. My missionary companion and I moved into an upstairs apartment in an old house. Only the land lady lived downstairs. I slept alone on a mattress on the floor. I would wake up at night sure that someone else was in the room. I was afraid that I would see something so I would put the covers up over my eyes. I have never been afraid of the dark or spooked easily, but the situation in that room really bothered me. I never mentioned it to anyone. After a few months I was transferred to Omaha, but there wasn't enough room in the transfer car to take all of my things. I left some things in the closet of that room. Five months later I was transferred to St. Louis and stopped in Sadalia to retrieve my things. Upon entering the apartment I noticed that the mattress I used to sleep on had be dragged into the living room and the door to my old bedroom door had been locked. I asked the missionaries why they weren't using the bedroom. They told me that there was something in there and they couldn't stand to even be in the room. I told them I had the same feeling when I used to sleep in that room but didn't mention it because I thought I would be teased about it. The missionary who took my place told me he didn't make it through his first night in that room. My mission ended and I went home to Utah. During the 1990's on a business trip to Kansas City and had a chance to visit some of the people I had met in the mid-west. I stopped in Sadalia and visited the missionaries there. I asked them why the bedroom I used to sleep in was boarded up with sheet rock and painted over. They said they weren't sure, but that the lore was that the land lady before she died had the room sealed off and reduce the rent, because she thought her father-in-laws spirit might be in the room. Strange thing is when I was sleeping in that room I had a feeling a very old man was angry about me being there.

Some people believe it, some others (especially the ones who live in the city) don't. I can personally say I've seen one before. I live in Malaysia and I am 14 years old (yeah, take away my credibility and go ahead and say I'm having hallucinations, go!), and I've had a lot of ghosts experiences in my life before even my brothers and sisters have had experiences of it too! I'm gonna tell you only ONE of my many experiences, whether you believe it or not, that's not my problem. Okay. So there was this one time when I was at home alone with my little brother who is 7 years old. I was eating at the dining table and my brother was watching TV, then out of all the sudden, there was this strange noise. It sounded like someone was punching our window. As I looked back and turned around (the window was behind me which is beside the dining table), I saw nothing but I felt sure of "it" knocking my window.So I didn't mind and said some stupid things. Then, it knocked on it again and I saw it this time. One concrete proof of the ghost punching my window was that the glass had shaked and I could see the light the window reflected moving (it was at night and when you turn on the lights, the window reflects the lights so if something moved the window, the light on the window moves too). I was so shocked that I ran away from the dining table and called my brother to follow me upstairs. As I was walking up the stairs quickly, I watched the window for a second and then, "it" threw sand to the glass window. SAND!!! I immediately was convinced of the existence (I was always convinced anyway cos like I said, I had experienced it a lot of times before). Proof of it throwing sand at my window?? The sound AND I actually saw the sand. But as I stared at the window, there was NO ONE there. It was pitch dark. P.s. The house I was living was new so things like these are expected.

Hi Friends ! Science to state on the existence of ghost needs proof....! To obtain scientific proof, scientists to do experiment....! For experiment, either the scientists have to bring ghost to the laboratory, or the scientists have to go to the ghost with his laboratory instruments....! But, scientists could not succeeded in his numerous attempts....! As we know, many people from differrent generations, including present one, tried to explain what they had experienced (example: as if, an invisible person enters a body of human being and starts speaking, etc.). In the language of Computer Engineering or Information Technology, it is somewhat like, the hardware is same, whereas, the software had been changed temporarily....! People have experienced that such changes could not be treated by doctors. However, they got some solution at Mosque, Church or Temple. Beside these, there are some person, who use " lemon " (the vegetable item), etc for the treatment, i.e. removing of the software....! One way, the scientists can adopt to study (or carryout experiment) is, the method with which the person removes the "software" with lemon...! Moreover, I am the eye witness for many such incidents. To your surprise, I am a scientist, by training....! Few examples: In the two notable incidents, one common thing I had noted was, both the "software" was that of the person who committed suicide....! I will share my experience with you, sometime later....! NOTE: Never go alone to such persons who use lemon etc for treatment. If you see such incident, immediately call your members of family, relatives, neighbours, or friends. First, get the help of doctor. If the doctor could not succeed, then call a known person from Mosque, Church or Temple, but not alone, go few persons together. ( Yes ! we respect Quran, Bible and Geeta. But, those persons in Mosque, Church or Temple are not God. They too are human beings with probably negative qualities. But, there is possibily of finding a person who can handle such situation). When the above two fail, only then try to call the person who handle such situation with "lemon" etc. I repeat, never go to such person alone. Better to know their contact information in advance, so that you can call them over phone, rather than going to him personally....! See you. XYZ
