hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Kadeem?
Well Allah Allah He was hobby, or many standard abbyson knotty he in Iommi, Deen, All praise is due to Allah and realize Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and on all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day,
the mystery behind dreams.
What we'll be looking at is the Islamic method of dream interpretation.
Whether we may or may not.
And if we may, How may we?
The reality is that most people have dreams.
The dream state has even been observed in
animals, mammals, in particular birds, and reptiles.
So, it seems to be
in all our many creatures.
Of course, we're not sure that
they're actually dreaming, the mammals and others, but that the state that we normally dream and they exhibit similar characteristics.
The point is, that from ancient times,
the possibility that these dreams that we experience
that they have a value they may have a value, or they may have a meaning.
Or they may be a means of predicting the future. In fact, that became one of the most common
understandings of dreams. They're speaking about our future.
And most interpretations tend to focus on the future.
And the ancient pagan world, dreams are understood to have been sent by Gods
done by Gods to human beings to predict the future and to cure or illnesses
4000 years ago, the Egyptians catalog the dream interpretations.
They have their book of dream interpretations.
And people practiced gym interpretations in one form or another all around the world.
In Christianity, it was in common practice in other religions Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. It's there
there is a practice of Hindi of
which does in fact,
It is in practice, and it was practiced by the prophet Mohammed Salah will be looking in more detail at the ramifications around the practice of the Prophet Moses I love and Muslim practice of dream interpretation.
But relative to the Western world by the 19th century,
they shifted away from the belief that dreams came from God, because the Darwinian ideas had become widespread and this belief in God had become widespread doubt about God had become common. So, they looked to human interpretations, everything was now to be looked at from a human perspective. And, of course, we had Sigmund Freud,
you know, who wrote a book called The interpretation of dreams. And his basic conclusion was that the dreams constituted some means by which
forbidden wishes and desires were concealed and disguised. And he always took them back to some textual implications and symbols, etc. Carl dzung, a contemporary of his disagreed with him. And his conclusion was that it was really only a continuation of the flow of mental activity,
that the human mind and its waking state is active. And in the sleep state is just a continuation of that activity.
By the late 20th century,
the physiological process of dream dreaming had been analyzed and categorized by the mid 50s, they identified an aspect of sleep, which they call REM, REM, which meant rapid eye movement, sleep, in that period of sleep, the eyes seem to be moving very quickly, you know, you observable from the outside. And then there's other aspects of sleep where there is just a quiet, you don't seem to be moving around. And it seemed that every 90 minutes
this type of sleep would occur.
Furthermore, it took up about one quarter of sleep.
Now, what was the content? How to understand the content, of course, was difficult, because they couldn't look into the dreams themselves. is not a science fiction,
movies and novels and things where people are able to look into other people's dreams, because this is a wish people have, you know, they think in the future we'll be able to do that you'll be able to plug people into
machines, computers, etc, which will be able to go in and see what's going on in your brain. What are you thinking the whole time? And what are you dreaming. However, we don't have that means whatever we know of dreams is after a person is woken up from sleep, and they tell what they remember.
Maybe some of it, they don't remember the the full content, the accurate content is questionable.
In terms of the Islamic view,
Islam clearly identifies the whole dream process.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam
was the last of the messengers of Allah.
And his message naturally, would be comprehensive covering all of the areas, and it would be preserved as No, none of the previous messages were preserved. Why? Because there were no profits coming after him. No messengers coming after no new net revelation. So whatever he conveyed, had to suffice for people to learn.
The last days
so he gave us a clear distinction, dividing dreams into three categories above za Salam said
aronia salata tune
for er Sala Hutton
Bushra Mina law
he has a non Mina shape on
what oh, yeah, I'm my you had this rumor Oh laughs nafsa
dreams are of three kinds,
a righteous dream which
is glad tidings from a law of dreams which cause sadness from Satan. And dreams from the ramblings of the mind this was narrated by Abu huraira and is found inside Buhari and a Muslim.
So, the dreams first category of James major category is that of true triggers. And this is of divine origin,
for the dreams of the Prophets, and the last one that I mentioned in Surah, assura.
That's the 42nd chapter, verse 51. Well, my cannoli Basha in
and you can lemahieu law illa
almine, wa e jivin.
All your sylow Rasulullah.
It is not befitting for a law to speak to a human except by inspiration that's the two children
or from behind the veil that's direct speech
in which a lot spoke unseen to the messengers, or by sending a messenger and that is Angel Gabriel who conveyed revelation to the prophets.
We also know Prophet Abraham dream
about sacrificing his son
which he sought to implement, that's obviously indicating that the dream itself must be considered
a true dream.
A dream of the prophets
otherwise, he would not have acted on it.
And we also have the verse in Surah, Al Fatah. That's the 48 chapter, verse 27.
In which the prophet SAW Selim said laqad sadhaka law Rasulullah Irelia bihac
letter the Hola. Masjid al Haram. Indeed Allah will truly fulfill His messengers dream of entering the sacred mosque.
And I shall dwell on how she's she narrated that divine revelation began
with the Prophet sauce I love
in the form of righteous dreams.
During his sleep,
whenever he had a dream, it would come true.
And that's narrated in Sahih al Bukhari.
Now the principle regarding true dreams.
First and foremost, is that we consider them to be a gift from Allah.
Whether to prophets, ordinary people,
or believers or even disbelievers, they are a gift from Allah.
Secondly, there are a sign from a law that the law is left to indicate to people that
he is present.
And he is behind everything
a lot said
suddenly him I atina
Phil OFAC Wolfie I'm forcing him had diet obey and Allah whom and I will talk
I will show them my side.
In the furthest regions of the earth, and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth.
A lot less This is a sign because atheists the scientists have no explanation for dreams coming true. And they're they're not even sure about all the gyms that are happening but people having dreams relating them and them coming true. How does that happen?
What causes that to happen
to dreams have control over the world, they can make things happen. They don't believe that the dream can actually make something happen. But somehow people are receiving in dreams, information about the future. And those dreams come true. So where does that come from?
Does it can this material world produce that knowledge? No way.
There's no way of explaining it. The only way is by believing in God. So it remains a sign of the lies left.
As proof to people that he does exist.
It's also a sign of the last day, they were narrating the promises element said when the Day of Resurrection approaches, the dreams of a believer will almost all come true.
This is found inside Bahati.
Once the frequency of true dreams,
reaches that state,
whatever people are dreaming, almost everything that people are dreaming, are coming true. And this is the dreams of the believers.
coming true. This is one of the signs of the coming up the last day, the end of this world.
The fourth principle to keep in mind
is that only the prophet SAW Selim could say with certainty that his dreams
or the dreams of others, our true dreams prior to them coming true.
Only he could do that.
So if you had a true dream, you had a dream today.
Tomorrow it happened. You had another dream tomorrow. You can't stop telling people listen, you know this is gonna happen the day after tomorrow, you know that this is gonna happen to that's gonna happen. Because your previous dream came true. No, you can't use that as proof. To
say that with any certainty.
Only the prophet SAW Selim can do that.
There are two types. The fifth principle is that there are two types of two dreams those that are clear and the need no interpretation.
And those that are obscure and symbolic,
that do need interpretation.
And we'll look into the issue of its interpretation afterwards.
The fifth or sixth principle is that these true dreams are related to character.
People who are
of the best character, they tend to have more dreams The prophet SAW Selim said as Dr. Koon rodian, as the cocoon hadiza, is narrated by Abu huraira, anti muslim, those with the most true dreams
are those most truthful in their speech.
there is a link which Allah
becomes a sign for the believers,
true believers. But in general,
true James can happen for anybody, even a disbeliever person doesn't believe in God can have a true dream. As we said, they serve a number of purposes, among them, science for law. I've met people who had dreams
as non Muslims,
where they saw themselves and white women
robes and things like this and ended up
on Hajj and realizing that that was what they saw in the dream.
A number of other cases
where people have seen or heard things in the dream, and then which are connected to Islam with this divine or
salaam, itself. And then
they've gone to other parts of the world and they ran into it, you know, or they saw it on TV or whatever. But they realize that there was some connection, you know, something was shown to them, and it became a source of guidance for them to Islam.
other factor concerning seventh point concerning the two dreams is that they may be shared,
that one on one person may have the same dream.
And it actually happened in the time of the Prophet masala amongst the companions of the Prophet, Allah, that a number of the Sahaba dreamt that Laila to father is going to be in the last seven days. And the prophet SAW Selim said, concerning that particular year or whatever, that Laila to father
should be sought in the last seven days. I mean, of course, it's still a general principle, but he expanded it to 10 days later, so it could be seven or it could be 10.
And that's narrated inside Buhari also
the other category of these dreams, which are based on revelation, their forms of Revelation, because they're coming from God,
as what may be called good dreams or pleasant dreams, they're not necessarily telling the future or anything, but you wake up feeling good about them. They were pleasant. And we're talking really only about the
halaal pleasantness you know, we're not talking about a person dreaming corruption and then feeling good about it.
the dreams withdrawn, are pleased with one is pleased with outside the hood regenerated, the process element said, If any one of you has a dream that he likes, it is from Allah.
So thank Allah for it, and relate it to others.
So that's why we said in the very beginning when the first principles is to thank Allah, know that good dreams true dreams are gifts from a loss to Allah.
it remains as a part of the profits would, you know, profited, stopped with puff mamas as alum, however, a portion remained in the form of good dreams and true dreams.
And a sub mnemonic he narrated in the process elements said, messenger ship and profit would have ended. So there will be no messenger or profit after me.
Except glad tidings.
Of course, the companion is asked him what do you mean by this messenger of Allah glad tidings.
And he said, that they are the good dreams of a Muslim.
And they are like one
part of the prophethood
some narrations and admittedly Maliki narrated also that the prophet SAW Selim said, a good dream of a righteous man is 146 part of prophethood.
it remains that's what remains of prophets with after Prophet Muhammad wa salam,
as glad tidings to the oma.
last principle, we're going to look at,
concerning the good dreams etc. And it concerns dreams in general is that lying about dreams is how long telling somebody that you drink, bad about them, etc. is not permissible islamically it is haram.
The prophet SAW Salem was quoted
by a bit Omar to have said, Indeed the worst lie that the person
is why is that the one who falsely claims to have a dream? That's honest Abraham.
That's pretty heavy. When we think of lies and grades of lies, etc, one may wonder, Well, why would that be the worst life
because as a tabari, great professor of the Quran said that lying about dreams is lying about the law. Because with good dreams are coming from a lot. So when one is lying and saying that one had this dream or that dream they're claiming to have received things from allowance is a lie, which is a lie about the law. So because of that,
considered to be among the greatest of lies.
The next category
is that of evil dreams.
the evil dreams according to scientific research, nightmares, we call them nightmares, etc.
The scientists have seen from the research that nightmares don't come from REM sleep state,
rapid eye movement, sleep state when you have regular dreams. The nightmares as they say occur spontaneously. Basically, they don't know where they're coming from.
Well, the problem was I started off course clarified for us that there satanic, it coming from tectonic sources from the world of the jinn,
that can enter into our sleep, our brains, our
various material, which
on one hand, causes a sadness process and describe the sad dreams as from Satan.
As well as fear.
One narration process I sent him and said, I wrote Yes, Allison had this enough's
a shout out in a bush ROM in a law, there are three types of dreams, the rambling on of the mind,
frightening thoughts from Satan and glad tidings from Allah.
This was narrated by Herrera and found in Sahih Bukhari as well as Samson, Nehemiah.
so frightening thoughts from Satan, causing people to wake up enough
state of fear, maybe reach out for
amulets or means of protection from illegitimate sources, cause them to go and enter into forms of ship.
bad dreams in general, all these they're all from satanic sources. And the prophets I send them taught as a principle. You could call this the fourth principle
that one should
spit or blow to the left.
Jab, Arab knee I said, if any of you sees in a dream, anything he dislikes, spit three times on the left and seek refuge in a law from Satan. Three times. sprinting on the left doesn't mean you know, gathering up a mouthful of spit and spitting on your bed. I just means claim to know which there's a light
particles of split that come out with this form. It's not
in from Sauce Labs are telling us to know in your you're in people's homes, putting on their floors and this type of thing because you wake up in the night with a bad dream, no.
the fifth principle is also to make dua for protection because I sell and taught do art to protect from
influence in our dreams, I also became the mighty light, mighty men know how to be he was a body, woman hamazon shoutout in what I do, I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from his anger, the evil of his creatures, and the evil suggestions of the devils.
When they become when they are present,
or that they become
this was found in this is one of our Buddhahood and
it is authentically narrated.
However, one point to note for this narration is that there is an additional narration to it in which it says, I'm delighted that Amara
was the narrator of this hadith used to teach his children above puberty, this law and those below puberty, he would write it on a paper and hang it, on them around their necks or whatever. But this narration is not authentic. However, the author or the translator of, of synonymy that would the English translator
he seeks to justify the use of amulets, tallies, and all these other things that weave
through this narration but it's not authentic. So, in the translated volume of the early edition of cinema be downloaded in English by Ashraf publicaciones
volume to page 737. How does number three to nine for
this discussion in the footnotes seeks to promote the use of amulets, which of course, is illegitimate and incorrect islamically the Sahaba did not do it, nor did the prophet SAW Selim do it or tell anybody to do it. In fact, he said whoever wears anomala amulet is committed ship. So it should be something to avoid
well among the ways to deal with the
nightmares problems are Solomon said to pray two units of prayer.
Hadith narrated by galera founded cites a Muslim
he quotes a process Am I saying if any of you sees a dream he doesn't like let him or her get up and offers a lot.
Scott as I've said to rokkaku before as much as you want to write minimum of course is to
the seventh principle regarding bad dreams is that you don't disclose them, you keep them to yourself, there is no interpretation.
Now in some books, you might find interpretation given
and attributed to urban theory in and others.
translation into English ever been Syrians book of dream interpretation? gives in interpretations for for dreams which abasa Sallam said she interpreted.
You know they're just tricks of Satan's
example the world the Hadith narrated by Abu sider hodari. In response, as Alan said,
if he has a dream, he dislikes it's from Satan.
Let him seek refuge in a law from its evil and not mention it to anyone, and it will not harm him.
Furthermore, jack did not deny he narrated that a Bedouin came to the US I told him a dream. He said, I saw in my sleep that I was beheaded. And my head was rolling away and I was running after it. Prophet SAW Selim laughed and told him Don't tell people about the games Satan plays with you in your sleep.
Right. But in the
the book Translated by this individual
akili. He gives an interpretation for beheading, that if one is beheaded, it means that
Is that the other end zone. So this is Evan series book of dream interpretation is not reliable. It contains mostly false fabricated narrations. So, if you have it in your home, get rid of it, it's really of no use.
With regards to the dreams, which the bombs are sent on, said, where the ramblings of the mind.
This is the
area promises, I'll send them described in one generation from Alvin new Malik.
What is important to a person when he's awake, he sees in the dreams, this is an insight he's done under new magic.
So they have no meaning in the sense of what's gonna happen in the future. You know, it's just regurgitation of
your waking life. And john and modern scientists, in their theories, they hold that the dream state is an extension of the waking state. It merely reflects waking state experiences, that confirms what the prophet SAW, Selim said 1400 years ago, they put all Jews into the same category. And they tried to, you know, somehow link, even the true dreams, everything else to that. But when it just doesn't explain away everything, it expands one category of dreams only, but to prophesize lm identify, because then this believe in the law, they don't believe in Revelation. So the idea, the expert that explanation for true dreams, they can't accept, though they have no other explanation.
But even this category of dreams, in spite of the fact that it's just the ramblings of the mind, it should still be considered a blessing from Allah.
Because as they have shown, actually, REM sleep is better than dreamless sleep from experiment. Because the growth hormone hormone responsible for growth and development is released mostly during REM sleep,
the lack of dreams and dream sleep could lead to impaired growth. And even the human body when it's deprived of that dream, sleep deprived people in experiments to see what would happen is that they would have more dream sleep, once they were given the chance to do so, because it was as if the body was trying to make up for what it missed of the dream sleep. So it seems to be something necessary. And as I said, it's related to this growth hormone,
developmental hormone, which tends to be mostly
secreted and created during the dream sleep state.
Now, when we come to dream interpretation,
first and foremost,
we should understand that the prophet SAW solemn,
he, in his own practice, used to tell about his own dreams, as well as listen to the dreams of other people and interpret them is to do that, especially after fudger.
Law, his interpretation, obviously, were based on
revelation, not speculation.
They do indicate that
interpretation is actually permissible, and is made other narrations and made other statements to that effect.
interpretation of dreams, fundamentally is, is Hello.
But we still have to understand and put them in some category as to, as is something that we all should be seeking out interpretations, or is it something that we try to do ourselves?
Or can we be 100% accurate? Can we be certain? We talked about the two gyms already that simply because you had a true dream yesterday, doesn't mean that the next dream you have today is going to also be true. So you
And we don't have that kind of accuracy, we can make that claim
a lot as in, in so he's gonna be that would narrated that browser Simon said the dream flutters over a person as long as it is not interpreted. But when it's interpreted it settles. So this is general permission given for interpretation
and some encouragement that you interpret your dreams.
But in the narration, another narration of that Hadith.
He said, Tell it only to a beloved friend or to one who has good judgment.
Right so it's not just go tell it every and everybody.
The third basic principle concerning interpretation is that only good dreams should be interpreted only good dreams. Prasanna said don't tell about the semantic dreams. So he's already told you that the good dreams are the ones to focus on though, of course, the ramblings of your mind, you know,
I'm not satanic, but they are so confused is really nothing worth talking about.
The fourth category principle,
narrated by Abu huraira don't relate your dreams except to scholars and confidant those who are very close to you beloved to you, those are the ones you
tell your dreams
because scholars you know will give positive interpretations and so with your confidence you don't need to have dreams which seem to be good genes and somebody tells you that I know it doesn't mean that it means you're gonna die, you know, that you know, put bad thoughts into your mind with regards to your dreams etc.
The fifth principle is that only the profits dreams are 100% accurate,
right, only they
could accurately trance translate or interpret dreams themselves. You know, in terms of dream interpretation as a general principle,
only those interpretations given by the prophet Muhammad wa sallam we can say are 100% accurate. So, if one reads the various interpretations was a prophet SAW Selim gave and they can be found in a book which I wrote called
Jim interpretation according to Quran and Sunnah.
I gathered over 500 narrations concerning dream interpretation from the prophet SAW Selim Sunnah.
And among them were the various explanations for things which were saw seen in dreams, etc. He gave his explanation. So if you have a dream, which matches that dream, and you can be sure that that interpretation is correct.
But for other interpretations,
we can't be certain. I mean, there are people amongst us who are known as dreaming interpreters and they go interpret people's dreams all the time, but can they be a 100% accurate? No. Why would we say that because if not boss he narrated that a person came to the prophet SAW Selim and narrated a dream, there was quite a long dream.
And then, before the process lm could be interpreted Abubakar requested permission from the processor to interpret it. And this is found it's a Bahais a Muslim, right, since it it.
After his interpretation, he given extended interpretation of the man's dream, throughout our sentiment said said to him,
you have interpret the part of the dream correctly, you have interpreted a part of the dream correctly. And you have heard in another part in your pilot, partly right and partly wrong. Abu Bakr asked him Well, what part was I wrong in the process alum told them because he used you know, a lie. He told him Don't Don't swear by it long
enough. He refused to answer. The point is he didn't tell aboubaker what part was right, and what part was wrong?
And now if I go back and was the best of the oma after problem was I was on a
able to accurately 100% accurately interpret the dream, then, who in our times, can claim to be a true dream interpreter or you can rely on an all in every of his interpretations? No one.
The other point to note, a sixth point with regards to interpretation
is that it is permissible to try to implement the gym you have a dream that you're gonna make hats gonna make lunch at a gym that you're going to do some sort of do that setup. There's no there's no harm in going in fact, you're encouraged to go ahead and do whatever good you've seen in your dream. All right.
We have an a narration from Jose Maria bin sabet.
he told the province asylum that he dreamt
that he was prostrating himself on the prophet SAW someone's forehead.
And the prophet SAW sent him said souls don't meet
what you saw in a dream
did not actually take place. Souls don't meet.
But the prophet SAW Selim bent his forehead forward.
And the mat and Hosea placed his forehead, on the forehead of the prophets, Allah
allowed him to fulfill his dream. So on the basis of that,
we say that it's encouraged enough, the Bible says I'm actually had him come over and do that. It's encouraged to fulfill the good dreams that you have.
of the dreams,
when we look at the symbolic dreams, symbolic interpretation, there are three types.
One is going to engage in interpretation.
There are Quranic
symbolic interpretation. For example, last month, Allah said in the Quran, Watson will be heavily like me.
Hold on firmly to the rope of Allah and do not break apart. Don't split up.
And the prophet SAW Selim clarified Saba clarify that. habla or habla law. The rope of Allah was Islam,
the deen faith Eman.
So if you have a dream about holding on to a rope,
then it's talking about holding on to Islam, you can say that it means really holding on to Islam.
Then we have synaptic
interpret symbolic interpretation, meaning where the process lm sign dreams,
things and people and cetera.
And he interpreted them in a way symbolic life, you know, interpretation, then if we see something similar, we can take it the same way. For example, if I saw solemn, authentically narrated there and say Buhari that, he said that he saw in a dream of people wearing shirts, of different lengths. And at all maribyrnong kebab, his shirt was so long it was dragging on the ground. He later explained that that shirt represented religion.
So if you have a dream about a shirt, wearing some kind of a shirt, it's dirty, it's torn up.
This can be interpreted to be indicating the state of your your religious state, or the state of others who may be seen in such dirty, torn, short, etc. So we can interpret it within that context. And then you have
word interpretation. That's the third type of symbolic interpretation where the prophet SAW Selim explained
dreams based on names of people who occurred in the dream, you know, taking from their name, the root meanings of their name, that
if somebody's name is Grace, for example, you know, grace from God
That no one can take an interpretation for that.
in terms of dreams, we also have dreams of the prophets Allah. Dreams Allah,
James have profits,
dreams of Sahaba where do we put these dreams?
Well, if you dream about Abu Bakr Omar was the major Saba, etc. And they speak to you and tell you things, etc.
know that whoever you saw there was not that's a hobby.
Because the only
true person you're going to see in a dream, I mean, you might see your parents there, they're your parents, but they're not actually them that you're seeing in the dream. Because that's the promise, as Alan said, souls don't meet.
When people enter the body, there's no meeting with them. Even though in our sleep, our soul does lift up and enter the bar is if it doesn't meet with the souls that are there.
Anyway, the point is that problems or sentiments, and if any of you dreams
and sees me in the dream, he or she has seen me, because Satan cannot take my form. And he said this only for himself. So if you see somebody who says, I'm Prophet Jesus, I'm Prophet Moses or anybody else, please don't think that you have seen Prophet Jesus, Moses, use of Abraham, etc.
Only Prophet Mohammed Salah if you saw him, and you can certain that you saw him.
Because Satan cannot take his form. However, the Sahaba whenever they were told that by people that they saw the prophets I said him in a dream is to ask the people, What did it look like? So now when the people describe what they saw,
if their descriptions
didn't match how problems are solved? Look, they say, No, you didn't see the profits.
So it's not just anybody you see in a dream, you know, looking in a way that you imagine the prophets of Salaam look, but you have no idea what it really looked like. You didn't read the book, shamala Timothy, for example, which is focused on describing the minutus details of the Prophet. He didn't read that book at all, you have no idea what the process of it looks like.
shape on can come in a form and
tell you that this is the profit of a lot, and he's not in fake it. So don't assume simply because you had a gentleman in the gym, the person tells you that he is a prophet of Allah. But in fact, that's what you're seeing.
And of course, legislation through through dreams cannot take place. If you see the prophets of Salaam you think you see the process lm or any other saintly person, whatever Sahaba and they're telling you you can do this and do that. Do this act of worship and do that act of worship, make this kind of Vicar and that, you know, they're legislating for you. They're telling you things you can do in the religion. Don't believe it? This is from shaitaan only restless as a Lamb who has the right to apply what was in the dreams in real life like the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salam concerning Milan
he may not be rubbish where he asked the level What are you doing? You know special? That's not the normal practice and what I've taught what are we are you doing anything special? And when Bilal asked him while messenger lol I said, because I heard your footsteps ahead of me in paradise.
So beloved said, Well, I'm not doing anything really except for after every time I do will do I pray. I make rocket 246 whatever. So props as Tom said, that's it.
And he legislated.
The son of will do after making will do to make to Raka after doing so, the Sunnah of Voodoo.
So he had the right to do that because he received revelation. And he could legislate from dreams. But anybody else having dreams and then telling you to do this and do this because in my dream
Robin came to me or this one game to me a little came to me whatever, you know, and told me this told me that do this do that this is all falsehood to be avoided.
So, then what is left for us, as I mentioned is his interpretation of dreams, you know, based on the circumstances of your life,
you have a an intention to make on now you can do omura
immediately, but you have this intention to do it, and maybe you get thoughts, well, maybe I shouldn't, I should put it off until another time, you know, I need to use this money for something else. And then you have a dream in which you see yourself in Makkah, then take this as a dream, a good dream from Allah, Allah means go to Mecca, make your armor, or make your hats if you didn't make much.
So, we interpret according to what's going on in our individual lives, you know, you're you're having problems with your workplace. And then, you know, you see some in your dream,
that you change your job, you know, or something indicating a change, a change is needed. You know, it may not be actually a job, maybe you see yourself changing from one location to another in the dream,
then you can take this as also a symbol, symbolic of you changing your job.
So, that's why most times unless people are listening to other people's dreams directly, and understanding the circumstances in their life, that these dreams might be related to, then, you know, you can't
really accurately interpret the dream is you may guess, what things mean? And they may have some meanings in your future in your life. But this is all guesswork hit that Miss. They are like the fortune tellers, many times people will engage in this. So take this as a business, that fortune teller, you go to the fortune teller, and they tell you one truth mixed with 100 lies. But wonder one truth comes true. You know, this fortune teller, this fortune telling. Dream interpreter tells you all kinds of things. You forget most of them, they sit in your head, but you you forget them. And then when one of them comes through, say, Ah, this dream interpreter is accurate. And you tell
your friends and social they all go rushing to this person. And of course, it was just one you forgot all of the other misinformation that he sent gave you that didn't happen. You forget all of that. So this is the way the human mind works. So when we come to Jim in touch, trepidation, you know, we have to be careful. Don't go to extremes with it.
bad dreams, don't tell them to other people. Know what is the rumbling of your mind. thank Allah for the good dreams. And if you're blessed with true dreams, thank him even more.
So, as we said, beams remain a sign to the atheist
who has no explanation and can never have an explanation for why people have dreams which come true.
This is a sign.
So that basically is the
summary of the topic that I wanted to present to you in this webinar. And from here, inshallah, we'll go to the various questions that people may have regarding our topic.
Hello, Hi, Dr. Bilal for such an informative and mesmerizing talk.
Now before we move ahead with the question answer session, I would like to introduce the IOU campaign. As all of you are aware that Islamic online university aims to provide a high standard of education that is accessible to all students across the world irrespective of their financial difficulties.
We believe that students should not be prohibited by financial restrictions to study the religion of Islam. In order to achieve this, we have launched a campaign to raise funds for the IOU. These funds will primarily be used to sponsor the students who cannot afford to pay the registration fees. Further, it will also help us to cover the running costs of IU as we are currently offering free diploma courses to over two lakh students from 227 countries globally from Galena. Hence, we request you to please take part in this noble cause and donate to our campaign so that we can continue to offer the quality education to the oma. You can contribute any amount it could be big or small.
Remember, each and every donation that is made does count.
Moving on, we will now open the floor to questions. In addition to the questions that we have already received, we will be opening the chatbox now for a minute or two, so that you can send in your questions I could I would request you all to please type your queries in advance so that you can send it across as soon as we open the chat. Coming to the format of the quick question and answer session. First of all, we'll take three questions from those that we've already received. And this will be followed by one live question that we will pick from the chat box in the order they come in.
So to begin with, the first question we have is from SR fizzles money from India.
Question is, do dreams reveal some kind of signal or help for a confused soul? Or is it true that usually a worse result of shutdown is what disturbs our mind when we are in a sad state?
actually, I've already explained this point, you know that
the dreams do have meaning and that they are divided into three categories as was mentioned,
the dreams which are from a law of dreams from the ramblings of our minds in the gym is from Satan.
if we were to try to interpret because we saw something in a dream, for example, you saw yourself bathing in cool water?
How would you interpret that? Well, you could interpret it as the acceptance of your repentance, if you made repentance or a cure from sickness if you're sick, or the lifting of a calamity, you know, if you're suffering from trials, why because there's a verse in the Quran in surah, Assad
verse 4243, Allah said there, this is a cool water to bathe in and
a refreshing drink.
And I returned his family to him and along with them a similar number of additional offspring.
So this was profit that you profit job
where Allah describes the trials after he received all the different trials etc. Then
he gave him who wanted to be them on a refreshing drink. So, if you saw yourself bathing in cold water, then Andorran calamity you could interpret it to me in that
inshallah the calamity is going to be lifted shortly.
So this is the way that we ourselves can interpret our own dreams, as well as the dreams of those around us. Where we relate back to things from the Quran or from the Sunnah.
In one way, or another way this is a useful and, and authentic source for possible interpretations. It's not 100% but
range of possibilities.
Yes, she? The next question is from sister someone from Pakistan. She's written once I had a dream that someone very dear to me passed away. I got shocked and ignored it exactly 14 to 15 days later, the very same person died. Is it my fault that I did not pay sadhaka and what should I do when I see such dreams?
Well, that dream was a true dream.
And this is the nature of true dreams that you don't know their true dream until they actually happen. So this is not the result of you know, any mistake or error that you
Done. Allah showed you a sign here is the blessing from Allah you had a true dream.
So once you take that what from that is that Allah is encouraging you reminding you,
you have been chosen by a lot to receive this true dream.
live up to it, strive to live up to it.
So try to improve your deen your practice your knowledge,
try to be a better Muslim.
You've been blessed. You've received a clear sign from Allah. Because as I mentioned earlier, true dreams. I've no explanation in this world. The only way
that one can understand them is that they're coming directly from God. So you've been blessed with a portion of the prophet to another day become a prophet now don't take it to mean you're have been chosen to be a prophet of Allah prophet is now you're going to start prophesizing for people No. This is just means that
you have been blessed.
Our next question is from a few people. It's a very common question, and I think you have addressed it during the webinar, I will still read the question out. So maybe you have something to add. The question is, how can someone have certainty that he has seen Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam in a dream? Is it based on the description of sort of the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or just a name of a prophet Muhammad, given to the person seen in that particular dream enough to confirm seeing him? I think what the person means is
understood. The point is that
if he matches the description
that the companions gave of the prophet SAW solemn, then that's what you saw. If he doesn't match that description, then you didn't see him.
If it is a name.
The person says I am the messenger of Allah, it's the same thing just simply because he said, I'm the Messenger of Allah. If he doesn't look like the Messenger of Allah, then he wasn't him.
And if he's telling you to do anything,
which goes against what you know of Islam, they know for sure its shape on.
Next question. A question is from brother Omar. He says, I have trouble in my life because my dreams usually become true. The problem is that I'm considering dreams more important than I should. What do I do to avoid these dreams?
Well, I don't think one should avoid to dreams if you're blessed with true dreams, what you should be doing is making so Judah shocker.
You know, allies,
blessing you, encouraging you to become more serious about your religion.
You've seen the signs, you receive many signs. You know, there is a job that a law has chosen you to do.
And that job is connected with
carrying the message from the Messenger of Allah.
So learn your deen
be worthy of the true dreams.
Because they're not evil for you. It's a blessing from Allah.
Most people don't get them
or not. Many, not repeatedly. So
you should take it as encouragement. To be more consistent in your religion. Learn it, practice it, teach it.
be thankful to Allah for what he has blessed you with.
And the next question we have is from Sister Maria ma from London. She's asking that can we trust our dreams all the time, even
even when they look positive all the time.
Can we trust our dreams all the time.
When they're positive all the time.
What is a good dream is a good dream. You can trust that they're from Allah subhanho wa sallam said they're good dreams.
Some of them are to make you feel good. They're pleasant. Some of them are telling about the future things that are going to happen in the future. So either way, they're from Allah. And you can trust them in the sense that
trust that they're from Allah.
But you can't assume that simply because you had some true dreams that all your dreams are now true dreams. Don't assume that because that's not correct.
Unless you find them actually, because you don't know a true dream is a true dream until they actually occur.
Otherwise, if you're having good dreams, then you think a lot for the good dreams.
Okay, the next next question that we have is from brother Danny Ramadan, he from Indonesia. The brother asks about lucid dreams.
What is a lucid dream? According to Islam, can the Muslims practice lucid dreams? What kind of dreams?
lucid dreams lucid dreams basically are the dreams that are considered the dreamer is supposed to be conscious that the person is dreaming at the moment.
Oh, when you're in half dreaming state and half waking state? Is that what is meant?
Okay, kind of Yes. It's basically the the person who ever dreams knows that that he or she is dreaming.
Most of the time, we don't really understand that we are dreaming. But in case of lucid dreams, the dreamer knows that this is a dream.
Okay, I don't see it as another category of dream. I mean, except for the fact that
you're conscious of your that you are dreaming.
So it means that you're not completely in the, you know, in within the dream, you're partly out of the dream. So that doesn't change the content of the dream, what's happening in the content of the dream is what is going to tell us whether it's from a law from shape on from our minds.
The next question we have is from Heather from Pakistan. He says, when we see some people in our dream who are dead? Do we see them do to our memory? Or do they themselves actually come in our dreams? If they can, as they are dead? Then what is the ruling of on seeing the prophets of Allah Khalid Islam, I think we have already discussed this part.
Well, the point is, if you have seen the dead, you saw your parents, your mother died, and then the dream you see her, your father died, you see him, you see your grandparents, whatever in a dream, you're not seeing them, because they cannot communicate with you. As far as us element said, souls don't meet.
And there are other
narrations machine mentioned that when new souls enter into the bodies, they're asked by the other souls among the righteous souls, they're asked by the other souls, what happened, you know, after they're
leaving this world,
you know, so they didn't know what took place. So these are not your parents, but just your mind. This is the one called the hassle of lamb. Or the ramblings of the mind. What you saw the process and said what you see in this life, you see it in a dream.
So you saw your parents, and you're seeing them as just from your own thoughts.
And as you mentioned, the second part, in the case upon Muhammad wa salam, that's unique, but even when it says you're seeing him, it doesn't mean that you see him he sees you and you're actually communicating with the problems as Alan because souls don't meet you do not you're not meeting his soul. But what you are seeing is an image of
Which is correct.
The next question we're going to take up from the live chat. It's from brother Sudan. He's asking, Is there any authentic action that we can do so as to dream of Rasulullah? sallallahu alayhi? wasallam?
No, there isn't. I mean, of course, there is a book called shamala. telemedia, which has been translated as an authentic book, but translated into audio. And then from there into English. The translator added his own footnotes, and he gave a method by which you can see the process. In a dream, he said, draw a picture of his sandals, because in the book describes the sandals, you draw a picture of his sandals and put it under your pillow, and you'll see the bouncers I'm in a dream. This is nonsense. This is absolute nonsense.
Okay, the next question that we have is from brother Samir in India. He's asking, is there is there any research in this area? Okay.
Okay, he's basically asking about dreams. Is there any research going on in the area of dreams? If so, what type of research? Is there any sleep and dream based scientific research with EG and all? Can you please refer a few books, if any?
Well, as I mentioned, you know, there hasn't been scientific research regarding
dreams. And I made reference to it in my presentation.
Clinical Psychology, clinical medicine books, you know, do mention them.
I don't have the actual references, written references, but you know, if you go on the internet to
research in Google research, dreams, etc, you know, you will find sufficient material their
next question sheet, or in shall, the next question is asked by a brother fessor from Kashmir, can one see in a dream that say here is being done on him and the place where it is kept? Caiman also dream of a disease and whether it will be cured in his life or not?
These are all possibilities. I mean, the problem was that saddam had the dream, of course,
and his dream angels
informed him of his being affected by Sahara and where it was kept.
So the issue of angels informing you, us that's another story. But the fact that one may suffer from Sahara and then see something in a dream related to it. This is something possible,
not impossible. But
don't necessarily believe everything your dream simply because you're under the influence of Sahara.
You know, that whatever your dream now is correct.
That your ad is the one who's doing it. No, we don't take that to be true. Unless you find it in real life to be proven. You know, you go to our home, you visitor and then you find out yesterday, nine minutes, whatever then Okay, it's not a story. But
that possibility does exist. And the same thing with illnesses, incurable illnesses.
It's quite possible that you could have a dream and something is indicated as a cure for your illness. You go and use it, you try it no harm. It's allowed you can take it but if it's telling you to do something, drink blood, you know, sacrifice a chicken graveyard, I know any of these kinds of things. Can you stay away from it? You know, it's falsehood, this from shape on
The next question that we have is from brother Hassan turkey from Nigeria.
Can I get a keep guessing and interpret my dreams? As I dream about many things that eventually become real in my life?
Yes, people continue. I mean, there's nothing that
prophecy Sallam said you should stop if your dreams are coming true, you should stop No.
You continue to interpret them, you know, based on your experiences and what they seem to indicate that this is a blessing from Allah. Just make sure you make sure Judah Shakur, thank Allah for what he has blessed you with.
Okay, the next question that we have in the live chat is from brother Samir. Um, can you tell us about deja vu is deja vu related to dreams.
Deja Vu, you know, the name given to the
experience where you go a place and you say, I've been here before, although you've never been there before, or you see a person I have seen you before, but you never seen them before. It know, this
feeling that people experienced at different times in their lives. And some people may experience that a lot. You know, this could be from the source of your dreams that you have that that you have forgotten, you know, you can have a true dream, which is clear when you wake up other ones, they may remain in your subconscious. So
when the thing the thing occurs, then
it seems to be as if it happened before.
Because it happened in your dream state. And it wasn't in the foreground of your memory.
And so you can't make that direct connection. But it would seem to me that this would be deja vu is actually related to true dreams.
Okay, inshallah, the next question we have is from, from a brother from Ghana, if someone dreams that he or she is urinating in asleep, and when they wake up, they see that they have actually urinated, then would the dream be of any significance?
No, as I was explaining, it is not of any significance. It's just a natural product of the external factors. You know, just as if one is a, you know, there's a big bang in the house, you know,
a tree hits the wall of the house, so there's a big sound made, and then in your dream, you're seeing a thunderstorm, you know, something seems to connect in that way this, so we just say you you urinated in your dream, and you urinated on yourself and the bed, this is just
a consequence of a desire and a need to urinate. So there's no nothing to be read into that.
Okay, shall we move on to the next question? This question has been asked by many people, they want to know what is the reason behind recurrent dreams, that is the dreams in which they say they see one particular thing thing repeatedly?
Well, I mean, all we can say is that the message is being repeated.
Whatever message is there,
we need to respond to it, we need to try to understand Ally's is
repeating it for purpose. So
we try to understand why purpose a lot is repeating it for you know, maybe we have been negligent or not really reading it correctly. We have not understood then go to somebody else. You know, somebody have knowledge, whatever, and have them give you you know, an interpretation that can help you to, to realize the dream or realize the signs that lie in the dream.
The next question we have in the chat is from Sister fussa. She's asked How can one be sure that the dream that they are seeing is a righteous dream? Or a normal dream? Basically, how can we differentiate between a righteous dream or a normal recurring dream?
Well, I don't think she mentioned recurring because that's what we talked about in the previous question. But anyway, the
righteous dream is a good dream. I mean, meaning that whatever the content was was either
you know you're praying in Mecca
your mind a righteous husband, you know, whatever whatever there's some good
information. So this you take it to be a good dream or the good Jim could be just you know, pleasant, you know something which you are happy with made you feel happy, etc. You know, but it is not necessarily Deen specific.
So that's we call those just good dreams. The true dreams, of course, are the ones which
happen after we dream them.
And righteous dreams. Grow a solid half
are those which
indicate some good thing that you want to do? You've been thinking about doing? You should do? You haven't been thinking about it, but it's something you should think about. So it's one of these types.
Next, okay. The next question that we have is from
a brother Avi, from Riyadh. He says, I don't see dreams very often. Even if I dream, I don't remember them. Or if I do they are totally half desert. Is there something wrong with this?
No, there's nothing wrong.
This point in your life, perhaps you don't need them. So Ally's not giving you them
when the time of need comes, then he will give you them
if you're not
practicing the deen properly, you know you're weak you're you know, not islamically
this may be some form of
warning for you that you know,
that extra blessing from Allah is not coming because of your, your own deficiencies. So try to correct yourself get in line and
the more on the deen and inshallah
if Allah wills, it will come.
Okay, shall we move on to the next question, which is from a brother Nicholas from Baltimore. He's asked how do we avoid interpreting our dreams incorrectly?
Well, there's no way you're going to avoid interpreting incorrectly because abubaker
interpreted incorrectly. So unless you think you're better than abubaker then the likelihood is that you're going to misinterpret some of your dreams. That's just likely.
So as much as you can you try to relate things to the Quran and the Sunnah. As we said, the Quranic phonetic sources should be the basis for your interpretation as much as possible. So the chances of being inaccurate will be lessened, but we can't rule them out. You will still likely be inaccurate, from time to time.
Okay, insha Allah, and the next question is from sister Selma. In the live chat, she's asked, Can the sadness that comes from nightmares be a message from Allah rather than a bad thing from Satan?
The prophet SAW sent him said
that the sadness is from shavon.
So we don't have to ask Can it be a sign of from Allah, it's not a sign from Allah.
It is from shade bond.
So you don't tell anybody about it. Don't try to interpret it.
seek refuge in Allah from it.
And if it happens in the dream,
spread to your left.
Get up and make to rock rock
And you have done with the process and I'm instructed inshallah you will be under the protection of Allah
the next question that we have is from sister Romana from USA. She's asked how does one make oneself dream of something that they wanted in their life everyday so it would become a reality
the sister has asked that how does one meet oneself dream have something that they want in their life?
You shouldn't try to do this, you know.
Don't try to make yourself dream about what you want, you know? Because simply because you're Juniper It doesn't mean it's going to become a reality. The fact that you've dreamt about something there is no guarantee there's nothing that's going to ensure and nothing can ensure that it will be a reality if it becomes a reality it's from Allah.
If it doesn't, and it was something good and then
it was also from a law as a pleasant dream, but not as a reality.
So don't connect the fact that you dream about something with it being a true dream. So you're gonna create true dreams. No to dreams come from Allah.
Okay, shall we move on to the next question which was asked by sister GABA and then the question is a please explain the dream after istikhara Salah how do we understand the answer in the dream
This is a misconception
is the hora
is not connected with dreams at all.
In in common fable and myth,
ignorant custom and tradition.
Some people feel or are under the impression that you should do is taharah before going to sleep at night,
or before sleeping, during the daytime, whatever, but you should do it before sleep.
And then you look for the answer to is the horror in your sleep. When this is not true at all, you see something green means go ahead, you see something red means don't do it.
do it. But be cautious, whatever. Or do it again.
You know, do a start over again, this is all nonsense.
There is no book for interpreting is the heart. The proper way of Sonata is the harder it is.
to decide on a matter.
You have two choices, decide which one is best. Get the help of people around you. seek guidance from those who are older than you wiser than you. Until you're convinced of which one to do. After you've convinced then you make your touriga and you make your do ours taharah. And in that door is the harder after saying that to a law that you read, you accept his decision. You know, he knows what you don't know and all these types of words of praise. Then you say Oh Allah, if this is good for me.
Make it easy for me, unless me and it was not good for me take it away from me
and replace it with what is good and give me
blessing to be pleased with what you've chosen.
even know that this taharah with your choice is not a good choice. If you find all kinds of difficulty when you try to do it. You run into all kinds of problems. There's no end of problems, it's just not working out then that's the sign. Leave it
if you find that everything falls into place, it's very easy. You know everything is facilitated, etc. They know
it's the one which is best.
That is the harder
Okay, in Sharla The next question we have in the live session is from sister Hannah. She's asked Can a dream be mixed good and bad in it.
Or you can have more than one dream.
With if it's within a particular dream, then basically it's a bad dream.
You know, it's a bad dream that has some good elements to it, but it's a bad dream, basically.
Okay, shall we take next question from the emails?
The question is from of the salon download, the person has asked should children tell their bad dreams to someone?
Children can and then the people just reassure them that this is from shape on, you know, tell them to say I was a biller, the shape on the regime, when they have it, they'll teach them to spit over the left shoulder
to the left, and also to make to Raka.
Law, teach them from the time that they're young.
Okay, inshallah we move on to the next question, which is trauma sister from Kenya. She's asked how would you know when to be worried about a dream and when to ignore it.
If it's a bad dream, ignore it. With rambling from your mind, ignore it.
if it comes true,
then be thankful to Allah,
that he blessed you with that true dream.
And if it's pleasant and good, likewise, just be thankful to Allah automatically.
The next question that we have is from sister Hannah, she's asked to I often have very symbolic dreams which confused me and sometimes I can't really tell if they are Sydney dreams or may include warnings from Allah. Is it wrong or amounting to shake to look into Islamic dream interpretation sites online? Or should I just ignore my dreams? How do I deal with it? Better yet, my dreams don't go to these sites online. Besides online mainly or depending on they've been serious books and interpretations by you know, deviants and others, you know, this is inaccurate information, I would say 99% of it. So avoid those sites. Follow the principles which I've outlined here and do your
interpreting for yourself. Or if there's somebody according to Quran and Sunnah who's doing helping in this area, in your locality, then go to that person, get help from them. This would be my advice.
I'll be taking the next question from the live chat. It's from Sister nusseibeh, as she's asked, Is it permissible to tell bad dreams to a rocky for the purpose of Rukia treatment?
We're entering into an area problem was I Salaam said don't tell anybody your bad dreams.
So my advice is don't.
That's what the prophet SAW, Selim said.
The man who came and told him he told him Don't tell it.
don't think that your rocky has special powers.
That he can interpret bad dreams which are not supposed to be interpreted in the first place.
In fact, if he is a legitimate karate, and you tell him about dream, he will tell you don't tell anybody this dream. It's a bad dream from shape on. So leave it.
That's what he should be telling you. If he's going and interpreting your bad dreams, then you know you need to get away from him is not an authentic recipe.
Okay, we move on to our next question, which
star does the dream interpreter take into consideration the personal facts of the person in front of him or the facts in the dream can be generalized.
Where there we where we have general, you know, information to do that generalization. Then we do so, you know if we have something related to a Hadith of the Prophet is that lump sum Ayah from the Quran, it's general you can give
The general interpretation, you know, otherwise, then, I mean, because even that general interpretation, likely it's going to be connected to the person's life anyway. So it should be
understood in the light of what's going on in that person's life. That's why I said it's it's better really, to be, you know,
on the spot to be able to find out or ask the person or you can see the person and know a person, you know that you're going to try to help.
The next question is related to this. It's from sister Jasmine from USA. She's asked, I would like to know who are we supposed to go to to interpret our dreams?
Well as prophesies I've never said this to people, one, either scholars, people have knowledge
and or confidence. Somebody who's close to you, who you feel close to.
It's going to give you good advice and is going to give you good words
direct you in a positive direction.
If it's somebody who was traveling around the world interpreting dreams, and
this becomes a means of living for the individual, then you know, be careful.
In general, it's better to avoid such people.
Okay, inshallah. The next question is from a sister from UK. She has asked, what about the dreams that when you or that make you feel physical pain, like something is trying to attack you? Or is it actually hurting your soul?
By terms of hurting your soul? I mean, I can really say that if you It's hurting you, if you feel the pain then it's real, it's hurting you.
Such a dream is something connected with satanic influence. You know, it's something that's not gonna make you happy. It's gonna make you sad about us. I'm sad this the sad dreams are from shippon. So it's a satanic
seek refuge in Allah.
The next question we have in the chat is from sister Austria. She has asked about the book that describes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Would you please mention it again so they can note it down. It's called Shama in Academie de
Shama in activity MIDI.
If you can write it out
as a spot for writing here.
I would write it down.
So we go on to the next question.
It is from Sophia Lee from Kenya. It says What does Islam say about lying on your back in sleep in relation to having nightmares?
It doesn't say anything.
The only thing that is mentioned regardless of where you're lying, Rasul, Solomon said that you know, if you had a bad dream, nightmare, whatever.
After spending over years, your left towards the left and seeking refuge in Allah, then change the position that you were sleeping in. You're sleeping on the left, shift over to your right. If you're sleeping on your back, shift over to your side, not to your stomach, because bossa nova prohibited us from sleeping on our stomachs.
Okay, we move on to the next question. It is from sister Bianca from Germany. She asks, my eight year old son often has bad dreams, how can I help him when he gets afraid at night?
Or you teach him to do what the process said? Let the teach him that da on teach him the meaning of the DA. The one which I mentioned, which was thought by the prophet SAW Selim specifically to be said, for bad dreams.
So I can imagine that Tamati Tamati in the other
He was shorter, mid, or mid amazon shopping. What I
teach him the meaning and teach him the duar.
Tell him to say it whenever he has a bad dream, inshallah we'll go away.
Okay, we take the next question from the live chat. It's from sister Faraj. She's asking what about dreams of Jana and hereafter
are those are good dreams.
I mean, reality, of course, is that the things of gender no i has ever seen, no air has ever heard, nor has it crossed the mind of anyone. So whatever you see, that is supposed to be Paradise is not a paradise is, but it's pleasant. It's a pleasant dream for you. It's paradoxical. It's, it's like, what you would imagine paradise to be or you feel good from seeing it. So therefore, it's a good dream.
I should add for the sister was asking about her son that makes sure that he makes the three calls before he goes to bed at night. You know, wipe them over his body. As promised, I seldom thought this, you know, there, I died for sleep, I didn't go into that. So the session would not be too long. But you know, we should know the idea of the proper etiquette of sleeping, there's a bunch of things about us and told us to do wipe the bed, you know, make the dough, blow in your hands, wipe over your body, three times the three equals and also reside, I took mercy before going to bed at night. So if he does that before going to bed at night and then when he has, if he still has the
nightmare, and he makes the seeking refuge, etc. inshallah that should be enough to take care of it.
Okay, inshallah we move on to the next question, which is from a Sahaba from India. She's saying that I am, I was possessed by jinn for the last three years, I have gone through many treatments for that, and Alhamdulillah I'm getting over but sometimes when I sleep, I get dreams of dogs, snakes, lizards, etc? Is this because of that gene? Which is inside me? Is this the actual gene who's coming in the form of those animals? Does it mean that this gene is still on me?
No, it doesn't necessarily mean that.
And nor is it the, the gin because you're not seeing the gin. And
these animals that you're seeing,
could be a result of suggestions that have been made to you.
people asking you are you seeing this Have you been seeing then you start to see them?
Otherwise, as I said, if you take it as a nightmare, you do the things, the proper etiquettes of sleeping, do the necessary etc. You know, seek refuge in the law and whatever bother that Sharla will go away.
Insha Allah. The next question we have is from brother Simon. This question is, again related to see here but the brother is asking, Can we ask Allah in our prayers to show us the location of the charm or magic and the method of undoing it via a dream.
We can ask a lot to show
but don't expect it to be shown.
the method of of countering it, you know,
to expect you know a special method to be shown to you is submit presumptions. I mean it is enough. You know that you are affected.
If you suspect it has to do with relatives, etc. Then get there with the water and wash yourself with it.
pazarlama Delta told us to
take the water of truffles to protect ourselves from the evil eye
All the other recommended treatments of the process and I'm use them
is from Brother Mohammed faru. He says
Is that you mentioned shared dreams with scholars and confidence only. So they would interpret not it not in a way that would upset you. But why would Yusuf Ali Salaam interpret bad dream of one of his cellmates?
Yusuf Alayhi Salam was
a messenger of Allah.
Allah gave him as his miracle, the ability to interpret dreams as his main miracle, the ability to interpret dreams.
he was able
to look into the dreams, perhaps on a level that other prophets weren't
for the dreams of others, of course, their own dreams, of course, are all true. But for the dreams of others,
perhaps Allah knows best. The point is that the interpretation of that dream
was revealed to Prophet Yusuf by Allah subhanaw taala.
So we don't put ourselves in the status of the prophets of Allah.
And do we just do as the prophet SAW Selim told us?
Don't try to interpret the bad genes. Just be silent.
Put them away.
Avoid Them, forget them.
Okay. The next question that we have is from sister Ayesha, she's asked some people claim that women cannot interpret dreams, is that right? No, that's not correct.
Okay. Oh, yes, we move on to the next question, which is from brother Majid from USA. He's asked, Is it right to say any dream is false at all? Can we prepare ourselves in any way to give more meaningful dreams?
Can we say any dream is false? Yes.
If the dream is inviting you too, what is untrue? islamically then you can say this is the false dream.
the falseness or true ness of the gym depends on the teachings of Islam. If it matches the teachings of Islam, it's true. If it goes against the teachings of Islam, it's false.
Oh, okay. So the next question we have is from brother Bilal Mammon, he has asked, a can one see in their dream, whether they are in paradise or not, as has been reported in some of the ahaadeeth if someone sees such a dream, Now, can we believe that that person is in paradise? Or hell, depending on the tree? No, we cannot believe that we cannot interpret we cannot identify those who are in Paradise and those who are in hell, that is only for a solar loss, a lot of them and they are the messengers of Allah. They're the ones who given revelation based on revelation can make such statements. So even if we see our best friend in hell, our parents in hell, etc. We don't take it to
mean that that's what's gonna happen. But you know, if there are things that they're doing, which are not good islamically then we take it as a warning to us to try to get them to do the good, avoid the bitter, do righteous deeds, establish their religious obligations, etc, etc.
Okay, we take the next question from the live chat it is from HR to
the person has asked would you consider a dream about the day of judgment from shape? Not from shaitan?
No, a dream about the Day of Judgment is encouragement for us to prepare for it.
You know, this is not a bad thing. Their judgment is real.
We've been told about it.
It's been described by the problem on asylum. So if we dream about it, it's a reminder for us to prepare for it.
Okay, inshallah we move on to the next question, which is from guru bake from Pakistan. I wanted to know if dreams as fudger are more significant than at other times, I see your dream
Should I continue with a question or move on? I mean, is it adding anything else?
Or is it the main question is, are the dreams of fudger more significant than any other time, regardless of what you dream?
There's no special time for James, a significant only Prophet Moses alum can say that he's the one who has the authority to say that.
Shall we have finished two hours of our webinar? Would you want me to go ahead with the questions or could we end it here?
Whatever is the policy?
We have finished the questions that we received from the email, we could go ahead with a few questions that we have in the chatbox maybe two last questions we will be taking from the chat and then inshallah we can close the session. We can take the last five. Okay, we can take the last five questions. The next question in the chat is from sisters Maya. She says if a person sees themselves, okay, you've posted it. A person sees themselves standing at the end of a line of people who are marching into what appears to be the Hellfire then she's pulled back from the fire.
does this indicate that she will be saved on the app fire know me that she can be saved?
She needs to because of actually took Shahada, etc. I mean,
by taking Shahada. This is has saved her in concept from the hellfire. But it's not a guarantee that you will not go to the Hellfire still because you could have left Christianity which leads to the Hellfire ultimately.
And when you came into Islam, you went on another path. You didn't practice the religion as you should have, you know, etc, etc. You could still end up in hell. Just because you became a Muslim is not a guarantee that you're going to pass. It's only a guarantee if you actually do what Allah has required of a Muslim.
Okay, we move on to the next question which is
from brother Iran, are shoe dreams a sign of taqwa or piety?
We mentioned already that the process and Ahmed said the people who
have the most true dreams are those who are
the next question that we have is from Sr sadiya.
What is the difference between a good dream and a true dream?
As we said before,
every true dream is a good dream.
But not every good dream is a true dream.
One is a general category. That's a good dream.
And one is a specific category, which is the true dream. So under the general heading of good dreams, you have true dreams, those who actually come true.
Whereas good dreams are pleasant dreams in general.
So in sha Allah, should we move on to the next question, which is from Sister arsia. She's asked I have dreams with tornadoes more often than anything else that I dream of. What does the tornado signify?
destructive power of the tornado
were alive, described those who
have refused to obey Him.
Follow his ways that they were destroyed
winds and tornado like
is a warning
if you persist
In disobeying a lie in your life in whatever area of your life that you are
caught up in disobedience that
you will be destroyed.
So, if you see this tornado like Jim repeating itself then that there is some critical area in your life that you are displeasing a law
which you should address to correct
if your life actually is a good life, you don't have these issues etc Then you can take the tornado as just a means by which a bond is scaring you or trying to scare you to cause you to take illegitimate means to
So, the next question that we have is from just azuri She said she says you mentioned that dreams about family is not truly from family as the parts of the words do not cross. However, when you constantly dream of disease from deceased family members is there meaning that is literal or symbolical?
No, there is no real meaning you know, beyond the fact that you know, those family members
people either you had special love for them, you know, longing you feel their loss more etc. So they are you're seeing them repeatedly.
Okay, the next question that we have is what is you have a start What about what is it that you have a sad dream and it comes true? Was the dream for from Allah?
Well, it's the dream comes true it's a true dream. And it was from Allah
The next question we have is from sister Amati and this is the last question that we'll be taking in Sharla what we should do if we strongly feel that the dream is indicating something bad is going to happen
well, if the
indication indicator is specific, then whatever it's indicating we should avoid
if the indicator is not specific, then we just seek refuge in a law try to
utilize what whatever protection spiritual protections that the Bible says lm has taught us and hope for the best.
Okay, inshallah. us to belong Would you like to take a few more questions or do we end here?
When I give you that option already, I think you said five and he said three and I said five and maybe you've done 10 so maybe it's time to
pack it in. JOHN?
