Berrin, thanks for the links. It appears it were succubi (plural). Here is the weird part. I was an evening out with another forum member (Lying Dutchwoman) and a few of her (female) friends. Gorgeous women. One introduced herself as Lilith (later it appeared that's not her real nam). Some of them (including LD and Lilith) were included in my sleep paralysis expereince. Gives me goose bumbs.
Not sure why it is a bad thing though, I wouldnt mind experience it again!
Again, I am serious
In one of your links there is a hierarchy of jinns, which includes Satan, Demons, Devils and Infidels in one category. I donot like that. Also not that dogs are considered jinns.
One hadith is very interesting though:
"As night comes in and it is dusk, then keep your children in for Shaytan gather at that time"
My granny used to say "everything that happens after midnight is from the devil"

Did some more reading and this Lilith is fascinating! Claims are that she was the first women (before Eve) or even the first human (before Adam).
It seems she is a real seductress, but:
The word "seductress" here does not refer literally to "prostitute" or at the very least, the representation of one, but one who tempts men into sin.
This quote also caught my attention:
It is believed by some in the field of medicine that the stories relating to encounters with succubi bear similar resemblance to the contemporary phenomenon of people reporting alien abductions, which has been ascribed to the condition known as sleep paralysis. It is therefore suggested that historical accounts of people experiencing encounters with succubi may have been in fact symptoms of sleep paralysis, with the hallucination of the said creatures coming from their contemporary culture.
But I have never heard of them before until now. So, the claim that it comes from contemporary culture is wrong.
