Mostlikely it was a dream, not an hallucination unless ofcoursce you took some sort of medication around the time. Many things can lead to ''abductions'' dreams
What do you drink before bed?
What do you eat before bed?
Do you watch or read any media about ETs(Beyond ATS) ?
Do you have a problem sleeping?
What time do you sleep?
When I'm worried about something, I often dream about it?

When it occurs upon awakening, the person becomes aware before the REM cycle is complete, and it is called hypnopompic or postdormital. The paralysis can last from several seconds to several minutes, with some rare cases being hours, "by which the individual may experience panic symptoms"[6
In addition, the paralysis may be accompanied by terrifying hallucinations (hypnopompic or hypnagogic) and an acute sense of danger. Sleep paralysis is particularly frightening to the individual because of the vividness of such hallucinations.
Sounds like sleep paralysis
