Being Hit in a Dream

Q: I had the following dream: it was the time of fajr and a part of my consciousness was awake. In my dream I was home alone and it was very late at night. I was very afraid. I did not know were my husband was. I was expecting my father who was coming. However when he was late I was even more worried. I heard my gate opening and thought my father had finally come but a sense of fear over came me. He walked into the house and i felt like there was a stranger in my house. The man was beaten up very badly, I couldnt even recognise him. There was blood all over his face and his face was swollen. He then said to me: "Look what I had to go through to get here," and I realised it was my father. I asked him what happened, and he said that he kept taking lifts from different people and each time they hit him. Tears rushed to my eyes and I woke up for fajr just as the azaan finished. My father has been going through a very difficult patch. He was retrenched from his job last year and hasn't been able to find a stable job. I am also home alone everyday while my husband is at work and at the musjid. Please can mufti give a meaning to my dream if any.

A:
A person who is seen in a dream being hit to the extent that blood flows, will suffer (or has already suffered) loss in wealth or property. And Allah knows best.
