Peace to all,
on the subject of hearing things and whether people can hear your thoughts,
in a way similar to paranoia, schizophrenia, being self-conscious, or having discomfort around other people. Whatever you may call it..
the only sound, logical, and correct understanding of this problem is presented by religion. As is the case with all our problems; that is what religion is for. Guidance that teaches us about ourselves; where we come from, where we are headed, and what our purpose in life is, also how we must go about doing it.
so this is the Islamic understanding of it; Your body is physical - limited in time/space/matter. Your spirit, within your body, is not limited in time/space/matter. Hence you existed before your birth in this world and will continue to exist after your death. It is the body that forms, grows, ages and decomposes when you die; when the spirit leaves the body.
understanding the spirit, your spirit contains a soul that is in one of three states. your soul can be a commanding one that tells you to do something, or it can be a soul that scolds you for having done something, or it is a soul that is satisfied with yourself. our goal is to bring our soul at that state of satisfaction. how to do that is a lifetime of learning, practicing, and growing.
satan your worst enemy is the one who wants to throw you off this goal by making other goals for you. to understand his attacks you must understand your physical body. eyes, ears, tongue, limbs, heart, mind are all tools that you must use to reach that goal. so satan attacks you and thereby hijacks all your body parts if you let him.
for the topic of discussion. if the spirit is neglected the commanding soul will drive it to destruction. satan keeps suggesting evil thoughts and ignorant ideologies to confuse and sidetrack people from realities of religion and true guidance brought by the prophets. if you have any other goal then Allah(swt) you will suffer from this and much worse. if you reject God then your body rejects your spirit.
may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and his Progeny.
