Ramin's Experience

Describe the Experience:

I slept after a light dinner at night. In the middle of the night, I saw in dream the house that I had left a year and a half years ago, I heard a grunting sound there, I followed the sound and I reached the room where the sound was coming from, there was someone in a black hood with hat, about 6.5 feet tall, facing the wall away from me, I asked who are you, then it turned to me, then I realised that it has no face, I was terrified and escaped, but it followed me and got me from back and squeezed me in its arm, so hard that I heard my bones crunching, then I heard a voice telling me “ If it was not for your children, you would have died” ;I woke up , just my right ankle twisted a bit, then I fell sleep again, I dreamt about a police officer who asked me to sign a paper, I asked him what the paper was and he said the son of Ghasem has died, I told him “but I'm alive! ”, and he told me you have died but you don't know it, then I went on to sign the paper and realised it was my father's picture.

The day after I went to an office in town, there I saw a paper with the date “Jan 31 2014” on it, for a long time I knew an important event is going to happen on this date, and I often used to talk about it with my friends and spouse as a joke. I called my spouse to confirm the date.

A few moments later my phone rang and I was informed that someone with my number in his pocket has passed out in the street, I was sure that my father has died. I reached the scene and saw my father`s body beside the street, the officer asked me to sign a paper, he asked me he might have seen me somewhere but he is not sure, he was the same officer I saw in my dream last night but I did not tell him about this because I thought he would not believe me
