    Mysterious scratches on arms

    Assalamu 'Alykum wr.

    Does anyone know anything about strange scratches appearing on the body, during daytime as well as night?

    My sister's left arm has a lot of these sinister scrathes, most are a couple of inches long and very thin. There are a lot of marks left on her arm. She has just showed me a fresh scratch and says she doesn't know how they get there.

    We (her family) all thought it might be her unconciously scratching herself, etc, but it really does seem like these scratches are appearing by themselves.

    Just want to check if anyone has heard about anything like this before.

    :wswrwb: Allah knows best, could she be self harming ? scratches and marks dont just come from nowhere..
    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet :saw: said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    muslim

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]

      Very unlikely. We're really not the kind of family that would have that sort of thing going on, alhamdulillah.
      In any case, the marks are very thin and it won't be much 'harming' being done by a self harmer in doing that.

      I just checked up a few old old threads on different forums and there are a few others who have the same problem.

      She's mentioned often she feels the scratch and then finds the mark there on her arm.

        Wa'laikum Al-Salam,

        As sis Asiya said, stay on the lookout for self-harm, it's a classic sympton.

        And watch out for scratching and biting whilst she's asleep. She won't know she's doing it, and they'll look like they're appearing out of the blue.

        Final thing to watch out for - maybe they're not scratches, maybe they're bruises/other damage to skin - in which case perhaps she has an undiagnosed skin disorder? Go to a doctor, and if you've definitely ruled out her scratching herself then ask to see a dermatologist.
        ...sermons from this minbar come with tongue planted quite firmly in cheek.


        "Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need -
        a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends,
        worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you,
        a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear,
        and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing."

                It could be done during dreams or during sleep in general. I had a scratch right in the middle of my chest. Pretty long. Took two months... or maybe two years, I can't really remember, to get heal the scars.

                I suspect some vigorous scratching during sleep for myself. If your sister has especially long fingernails, that could be it.

                    Assalam Aleikum Brother/Sister,

                    This is really shocking and strange and in fact in my family also, some of us get these scratches as well usually in certain patterns like 2 almost parallel scratches with 1 scratch cutting across...length around 2-3 inches and sometimes they are deep. I was really disturbed when it happened last night to my 6 month old daughter on her foot which stretched across the whole foot....not sure how to explain this...because from the medical and scientific point of view I could not yet find any solid evidence that would explain this phenomena.....and most amazing fact is that my child did not cry......I have strong faith in Allah Subhaana wa' ta'ala....and May Allah guide us and protect us from all the sufferings and devilish deeds...Aameen

                      Assalaamu alaykum recently my daughter has been getting these mysterious scratches and i have dismissed them
                      as insect bites, even though insects dont bite in that manner or leave 3 inch scratches.

                      Ive also noticed that anyone who sleeps in her bed has extremely disturbing nightmares, even after ayahtul kursi and three quls.

                      There is also a lot of paronormal activitiy on our street, and I myself have noticed many weird things. Anyway i got a tub and filled it with water then recited the verses of protection over the water. I then went to every room in the house-except the bathroom- and sprinkled this water in all four corners of the room. Alhumdulilah the scratches have stopped, but the paranormal activity sometimes continues but on a very harmless level alhumdulilah.

                      Im glad people have shared their experiences on here because i was beginning to think i was the only one affected by such a strange phenonema. Im just wondering if psychofak should set up a camera in her sisters room in order to observe what goes on at night?

                        I know that finding bruises on ones body (without any apparent reason) is a symptom of having a spiritual illness- i.e being afflicted with sihr (black magic) 'ayn (the evil eye) or mass (Possession).

                        Have you tried consulting a raaqi? (someone who uses Quran and sunnah-Hijamah, etc to cure the sick)?

                        If not, I would suggest you do insha'Allah.

                          Masha'Allah, it's good to see people doing things the correct way alhamdulillah. I'm happy to hear that your daughter is improving. It would be a good idea to spray the Quraani water over your daughter's bed as well. It'll be easier to put the water into a spray bottle and use that instead.

                            What about bruising, esp deep, dark brusing over the body for no apparent reason?
