Interpreting Dreams

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Can someone (who can interpret dreams) makes his dream realized, by interpreting his dream by himself? If someone delays while he gets his dream interpreted, will his dream be realized?

A:
It is not necessary the the dream is realized after interpreting it. The delay does not make a difference. Sometimes the dream is realized and sometimes it is not. At times it is realized, but different to the way it was understood or interpreted.

Allah Ta'aala knows best.

Dreaming of Surah Aala Imraan

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Please shed light as much as possible, to the possibilities or meaning on what exactly does it mean for a person to dream of an entire Surah, in specific being Surah Al Imraan.

A:
According to Allama Muhammad bin Seereen, a famous interpreter of dreams who lived in the first century of the hijrah, one who dreams that he has read Surah Aala Imraan in a dream (the whole surah or part of it) will experience three things:

1) He will suffer misfortune among his family
2) He will be granted much rizq in his old age
3) He will travel a lot.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best

Seeing Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in a Dream

Q: If I saw someone with a beard and turban in my dream advising me to keep a beard, is it necessary that it was our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam? I'm confused. Does the hadith say that our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said that shaitan (the devil) cannot take my form in any way and if a person has seen me he has indeed seen me?

A.
The Hadeeth does mention that if a person sees Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) in a dream then it is definitely him because Shaytaan cannot come in the form and appearance of the Holy Prophet. (Ibni Maajah V2 P1284).

If you had dreamt of Our Rasool (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then you would have known it immediately. That is how one determines whether he had dreamt of the Holy Prophet or not. It is a natural feeling of certainty one experiences in the dream and that remains in the heart after waking up. One would be sure that the person seen in the dream was indeed the Messenger of Allah. Such a dream is true and correct, and cannot be from Shaytaan.

According to what you have written it is not necessary that the bearded and turbaned person you saw was really Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam), because you would have definitely known it in the dream. It’s possible that you had seen an Angel. Nonetheless, the advice given in that dream is very true and correct, because keeping a beard is compulsory. Consider it a favour from Allah Ta'aala that through direct communication, albeit via a dream, you have been made aware of the importance of keeping a beard

Deceased Speaking in a Dream

Q: My sister had a dream about my late aunt: she was giving glad tidings in the dream about our future. The dream was a while before Fajr salaah. Is whatever the deceased saying in a dream considered true?

A.
When a deceased speaks in the dream then generally whatever he or she says is correct and true, because the deceased is in the true world. May Allah Ta'aala make those glad tidings apparent in your lives, Aameen.
