      Been away for a while, but i'm back at least for now. Now to elaborate, here are some common reasons why they might stalk a person:

      Attraction - They get attracted to humans and that is why you'll hear about women being instructed not to wear perfume or leave hair exposed when passing by trees/wooded areas as that can attract their attention.
      Anger - it is possible to harm them without even realizing it or if they assume some tangible form (e.g. animal or insect) then they can also be harmed if attacked in this state.
      Otherwise, they might do it just for fun--sometimes it is just fun for them to scare people and the more scared people get, the more it encourages them.
      Tell your assassin to aim for her head...because she doesn't have a heart.

      Similarly, I've heard about women having to go inside when it starts to get dark cuz of jinn as well.. and honestly, it pissed me off like no other when i was made to go inside too once. I didnt understand that it was so common and the real reasoning behind it i guess. Still baffles me a bit though

      Were your 3 points from a religious perspective? Or are these things that are just.. i dont know, something that is said not to do and whatnot

      In terms of religious perspective, I don't know if you will ever find it spelled out like that but indirectly, such as with the advice to cover hair, I have read text of hadith that does forbid or at least advises against certain things, though perhaps not directly mentioning that it could lead to some type of reaction from jinns, though don't ask me for references as I wouldn't have any readily available.

      I have read/heard several things. Firstly, I've read that maghrib is the time when the shayateen come out...and that it's better for people to remain indoors. Once maghrib has passed, then you can go out. If you need to be out at that time, then it's not hard to recite your protective adhkar.....it's just that we are lazy/heedless. I've also heard that night-time is the time for humans to rest and for the jinns to come out. The sunnah is to sleep after Isha, so that it's easier for one to wake up for tahajjud/fajr prayers. In surah Falaq, you seek refuge from the evil of the darkness when it settles and the reality is that crimes and other evils tend to take place during the night.

      I understand that it seems restrictive and when we feel stifled, we feel frustrated. But, it's nothing to get pissed off or baffled about. Allah has created different species. You have animals that are nocturnal and only come out at night. Humans and Jinns are two different entities. It's easier for us to take precautions in daily matters that we can see or perceive with our 5 senses but we tend to become lazy/heedless with what we can't see. We don't see that jinns so we think they're not there and go about our business. If we're advised about something, it's for our protection and benefit. I am under the impression that the admonition to stay indoors at maghrib/night is for both men and women and not confined to women.

      Let's put going out at night aside and just take a look at the other duas. Have you ever wondered why is it that there are protective duas for every single thing...when entering the home/bathroom...changing clothes...etc etc. Shaitan has his agents and he has vowed to do his best to lead astray mankind until the crack of doom...so he's not letting us go easy. Nazar and magic are like spiritual viruses and are harder to detect than something like the flu. You treat the flu by taking meds and taking preventative measures to decrease your chances of catching it. Similarly we have to take preventative measure for spiritual illness as well. Recite your adhkar when you go out and before sleeping and for other situations...along with being careful about bragging and whom you reveal details of your life too as not everyone is trustworthy.

      Did something disturbing happen in her life before she started this?

      Does she says she can see the jinn or it's just the senses?

      Great post MashaAllah...As my Shaykh mentioned the problem is always within ourselves and if only we followed the Sunnah would we be at ease.
