Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

wa Salatu was Salam

00:00:15--> 00:00:16

ala Abdullah

00:00:17--> 00:00:35

Mohammed, Laila and early he was so happy he edge marine and that along the aluminum a and found when fat and Bhima tena was eating at min bureaucratically our hamara he mean am about.

00:00:37--> 00:00:40

So after praising Allah azza wa jal

00:00:42--> 00:00:47

and sending Peace and blessings and salutations upon His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:49--> 00:01:20

then I want to welcome you all back to the resumption of Friday night reflections when it comes to the topic for today. So, this is a topic that I have wanted to speak about for quite some time. And actually, I would like to do a full Dola elmia a full workshop, maybe a two day workshop on this topic in the future, but for now, we will suffice ourselves with just tonight in sha Allah, Allah as a an introduction.

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

And the topic that we're going to talk about in sha Allah to Allah is the topic of our

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

will animal mathematics, dreams

00:01:32--> 00:01:40

and the topic of interpreting dreams, what we call a beer, or raw or tailwheel.

00:01:42--> 00:02:01

interpreting dreams now as you know, for Friday night reflections, we do a different topic every week. So this topic will not continue with us beyond this week, but inshallah Allah we will try tonight to just introduce the topic. Now before I begin introducing the topic, I want to make two disclaimers.

00:02:03--> 00:02:16

The first one is, this is a big topic, and we're only going to scratch the surface, okay, we're not going to be able to cover every single point on this, and we're not going to go into massive amounts of detail.

00:02:18--> 00:02:42

The second disclaimer is that I am not a person who interprets dreams. And what I'm going to teach you here today is not from a person who interprets dreams. The purpose of this lesson today is to understand how dreams are important or why dreams are important in Islam, and how people interpret dreams.

00:02:43--> 00:03:16

The purpose is not for us to leave today, and interpret dreams as we want. As we're going to hear this is a serious issue in Islam. We're not going to just go home and be able to interpret all of our dreams and interpret the dreams that our friends, the purpose is to take the soul, the fundamental principles, the basics, the framework of what dreams are, why we should be concerned about dreams and how we can learn some of the etiquettes of dreams and dream interpretation.

00:03:18--> 00:03:32

And really, you might hear some of the scholars of Islam say the dream interpretation is a gift from Allah. Hebrew atonement Alize Hannah tala. It's a gift from Allah azza wa jal.

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

And this is true.

00:03:36--> 00:03:40

However, there is a part of it, that you can learn.

00:03:41--> 00:04:07

There is a part of it that is a gift from Allah. And there is a part of it that you can learn. You can learn to also learn the basic principles. You can learn the cowhide the rules, you can learn how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba used to interpret dreams, you can learn some of the famous dream interpretations.

00:04:09--> 00:04:52

What is beyond that is a gift from Allah azza wa jal, he gives it to whoever he wants, some of the people he gives it to and some of the people he doesn't give it to. However, the basics the basic framework, the basic principles and the basic science, you can learn it regardless of whether you have been given this gift from Allah azza wa jal or not. You can learn it like you can learn any other science in Islam. Like you can learn Pepsi or like you can learn fish. Like you can learn hobbies. You can also learn the basics of dream interpretation, but that will only get you so far. There is a portion of dream interpretation. That is a gift from Allah Subhana. Allah He gives it to

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

whoever he wants from his servants

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

and they are very few and far between. But we can also learn what

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

characteristics are because they have characteristics. So if we learn this then we can learn what sort of person

00:05:09--> 00:05:22

is often given this gift by Ally's origin. So inshallah we can you know, we can cover some things, but we will not cover everything. And we're going to focus upon the basic and the most fundamental principles in short, long time.

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:05:27--> 00:05:42

in a hadith narrated by an Imam Al Bukhari, and elimine Malik in his Mata and others. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lemmya kamina Nobu wotty lol MOBA shirat.

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

He said nothing remains of prophethood except for Alibaba shirat

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

Alibaba shirat it comes from the word bush law glad tidings

00:05:58--> 00:06:20

and is something like good news, something to make you happy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us nothing is left lemmya come in and no Buddha, nothing is left from Prophethood the last prophet is our messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa seldom, there is no prophet after him.

00:06:21--> 00:06:41

Nobody else took inherited no goolwa from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam nobody else inherited Prophethood Prophethood finished with the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but there is one part of prophethood that remains,

00:06:42--> 00:06:47

there is one part of prophethood that remains and it can be given to

00:06:49--> 00:06:54

some of the people and it is what is called El mobis shirat.

00:06:56--> 00:07:01

The messages of good the glad tidings the Bushra

00:07:03--> 00:07:19

they asked in some narrations or messenger of Allah, what are Alibaba shirat? What are these glad tidings? The prophets lie Selim said, I wrote a sorry how to Yara hell Muslim, outer Allah.

00:07:22--> 00:07:32

A true dream, or a good dream that a Muslim sees, or someone sees about him.

00:07:33--> 00:07:42

A good dream that a Muslim sees and you see it in your own in your own sleep, or someone else sees it about you.

00:07:44--> 00:07:49

And this is the only thing which is left of prophethood

00:07:52--> 00:07:55

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:56--> 00:08:03

himself. When his prophethood began, it began through dreams.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

In the hadith of Ayesha rhodiola and her in Sahih, Al Bukhari

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

and Sahih Muslim and others

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

that she probably a lot one has said

00:08:22--> 00:08:40

our Luma Budi abbyy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amina lawai are Roja. assadi aka fino farrakhan, Allah Yaga Illa ledger at Miss lavallette is so bad.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

She said the first kind of revelation

00:08:46--> 00:08:53

that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received were true dreams during his sleep.

00:08:55--> 00:09:23

And he used to see true dreams. He would not have a dream except that it would come clear. Like the morning comes mithila Fela is so bad. Like the like the rising of the daybreak like the the morning comes. Then the prophets I seldom would see a dream and it would happen he would see a dream and it would happen he would see a dream and it would happen. And it is narrated that this continued for six months

00:09:25--> 00:09:26


00:09:27--> 00:09:53

gibreel came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam before ikara Bismillah keleti Hala for six months, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued to see dreams and every single dream that he would see. It would come true, like the rising of the sun in the morning. And just like the sun rises in the morning, the dream would come true.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

And that gives us an indication of how

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

True dreams are a part of prophethood

00:10:04--> 00:10:23

because one of the ways that the prophets would receive y was through dreams. But we need to be clear that the Quran was never revealed via a dream. The only the no idea of the Quran was revealed through a dream.

00:10:25--> 00:10:38

No idea of the Quran was revealed through a dream. However, there were elements of Islam that were revealed through dreams. And we know that the dreams of the profits are true.

00:10:39--> 00:10:40


00:10:41--> 00:10:47

an MBA you have the dreams that the Prophet see are true.

00:10:49--> 00:11:07

And we're gonna look at some examples of this from the Quran. But continuing on this topic of dreams being a part of prophethood we come to a hadith and this hadith. For a lot of the scholars this hadith is min mushkil artha. It's from the confusing a hadith.

00:11:09--> 00:11:32

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, as narrated by anise and Apple site and abhor Ella and others. Alice, Abu Saeed and Abu hurayrah are Roja. asylee what will happen Minar Rajamouli soil Hill movement, Jews own Minh city tettenhall albarino Jews and men and Nova

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

pay attention. A good dream of a believer a true dream

00:11:39--> 00:11:43

is one of 46 parts of prophethood.

00:11:45--> 00:11:54

Any Prophethood that was given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one part out of 46 was a true dream.

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

Then you have the hadith of Abu hurayrah

00:12:03--> 00:12:16

and most of these are Hadith if not all of them are in Sahih Muslim and some of them in Sahil Buhari Rukia alamode many Jews own min humps in what are the ina Jews and min and nuvola

00:12:18--> 00:12:30

a true dream A believers dream is one of 45 What did you have before 46 now 45 parts of prophethood

00:12:32--> 00:12:44

even among Robbie Allahu Houma narrated that the prophets lie Selim said our ruya are solely Han Jews own min hum setting ye sharena Jews and Mina Nova

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

a true dream is one of 25 parts of prophethood

00:12:52--> 00:12:59

Okay, now we have almost 4546 25 but it did not stop there.

00:13:01--> 00:13:12

100 our model and I will say that a bus narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said earlier asylee Jews own Min severina Jews and min and Nobu.

00:13:13--> 00:13:19

A true dream is one of 70 parts of prophethood.

00:13:21--> 00:13:27

So now we have 70 and we have 46. And we have 45 and we have 25.

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

So, which one of them is true?

00:13:31--> 00:13:47

And half of that one hijab. In fact, Halle Berry mentioned that the number of narrations reaches 10. And there are 10 different numbers mentioned of the parts of a newborn some of them are not as strong as others.

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

But they'll have been hydroset. This Heidi has been narrated in 10 different ways.

00:13:56--> 00:14:16

So which one of them is true? The scholars have some different opinions regarding this. Some of the scholars came and they said these are hydrothermal potrebbe. They are shaky. There are too much contradictions and 4645 2570. We don't just leave it

00:14:18--> 00:14:22

some of the scholars among them even though Abdul

00:14:23--> 00:14:34

Rahim Allah tada he said, I do not see a contradiction in that the various narrations differ regarding the number of parts of prophethood in a dream.

00:14:37--> 00:14:46

A good dream by some individuals could be one to 46 or less or more, depending on the qualities of the dreamer.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

Okay, so even Abdullah How did he divide this by the qualities of the dreamer and even more pious the dreamer is the closer you get towards profit

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

And some of the scholars said the more truthful the dreamer is, the closer you get towards Prophethood.

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

So we know that the root

00:15:13--> 00:15:23

of the MBR the dreams of the prophets, they are happy they are true. Okay. So the prophets I seldom dream is 100% true,

00:15:24--> 00:15:30

any 100 out of 110 out of 10, one out of one any complete true,

00:15:31--> 00:15:45

then some of the scholars said the dreams of the Sahaba or the Allahu anhu because the most knowledgeable of the people in interpreting dreams after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Abu Bakr Siddiq

00:15:46--> 00:16:01

because dreams come with truthfulness. As we go into here and there are a hadith in this regard, that dreams come according to the truthfulness of the person, the seed of the person.

00:16:03--> 00:16:13

And the most truthful of this oma osteochondroma after the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is who Abu Bakr Siddiq.

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

So with regard to Abu Bakr, for example,

00:16:19--> 00:16:30

then his dreams were one out of 25, for example, this is the opinion of him and Abdullah. But with regard to Abu Bakar, the dreams are one out of 25

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

with regard to

00:16:34--> 00:16:48

the regular believers, Yanni, the sabya, Kuhn, you know, the very righteous believers, but they are not like, they are not like Sahaba, but the scholars of Islam and the normal people. So there's is one out of 46.

00:16:51--> 00:16:56

And with regard to the average believer, one out of 70, and so on and so forth.

00:16:57--> 00:17:10

So according to Eben Abdullah, the more righteous the person is, the closer the dream gets towards Prophethood the most right the most you can get is one out of 25.

00:17:12--> 00:17:22

The most that you can get is one out of 25 you can't get you can't get closer than that, one out of 25 is the most you can get and one out of 70

00:17:23--> 00:17:53

is the least you can get for for for a Muslim, because all of these relate to Muslims because only a Muslim can be given a portion of prophethood a portion of prophethood cannot be given to a non Muslim. And that's why in these are Hadees all of the mentioned a dream that a righteous person sees all of the mentioned a dream that a a righteous person sees a Muslim sees not a dream that a non Muslim sees.

00:17:54--> 00:18:13

A dream that a non Muslim sees can be true, it can be true, but it is not a part of noble work. It's not a part of prophethood. So the believers, the Muslims are between 25 and 71 out of 25 to one out of 70 but this is not the only opinion.

00:18:16--> 00:18:25

Some of the other scholars, they had a different opinion. They said we differ in how we interpret the dreams.

00:18:27--> 00:18:43

So the opinion of Abdullah bar is relating to what relating to the person who sees the dream. the opinion of the other scholars is that it relates not to the person who sees the dream, but to the person who interprets the dream.

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

And that the person who interprets the dream

00:18:51--> 00:19:04

will get a portion right and a portion wrong according to how gifted they are in dream interpretation and how knowledgeable they are about the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:19:05--> 00:19:17

So for example, Abu bakkar when he interpreted a dream, in front of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did the prophet SAW Selim, say to him, as sub tada one?

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

You got some of it right? And some of it wrong.

00:19:24--> 00:19:35

He Abu Bakar interpreted a dream in front of the prophets I seldom he said, O Messenger of Allah, allow me to interpret it. The prophets I send them said to him interpret it.

00:19:36--> 00:19:44

So he interpreted it. And the prophets I send them said to him are sub de bah bah, you got some of it right?

00:19:45--> 00:19:46

And you got some of it wrong.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

So some of the scholars said, the meaning of this is that nobody gets a dream interpretation 100% except the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you can get the clue you can get the general

00:20:00--> 00:20:30

We'll just put all of the meanings, all of the signs, all of the details, all of the, you know the the full story, you don't get all of it, you only get part of it. And that according to how knowledgeable you are about the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger, so I sell them. And according to how strong the gift of dream interpretation is with you, you will either get one out of 25, portions of prophethood, one out of 45, or one out of 46, or one out of 70.

00:20:33--> 00:21:13

And so what we say about this hadith is it either refers to the person who sees the dream, or the person who interprets the dream. And in reality, there's no reason why it can't apply to both the person who sees the dream, the more pious they are, the more righteous they are, the closer they will get towards seeing more, they will never have the dreams of the prophets, they will never have way they will never have revelation from Allah, but they will have 120 fifth or 140 fifth or 140 60 or 170 s according to how righteous they are. Or according to how they are interpreted. They will either be interpreted

00:21:14--> 00:21:25

to such an amazing level that it represents 120 fifth of Nova or to such a level that remember that represents 140 fifth 146 to 170.

00:21:28--> 00:21:34

So this inshallah Allah clarifies this hadith and this hadith is an important Hadith.

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

In fact, this concept is alluded to also in the Quran.

00:21:46--> 00:21:53

Allah azza wa jal told us in Surah, Yunus, Lahore homall boosh, la fille, hayati, dunya waffle era,

00:21:55--> 00:22:01

they have glad tidings in this world, and in the next

00:22:02--> 00:22:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained what the glad tidings are in this world he said, he are rokeya asylee How to euro minnow outwear Allah, it is a true dream

00:22:18--> 00:22:29

that a believer sees or that is seen for him. So, this inshallah gives us an introduction to the, you know, somewhat about the importance of the, the topic.

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

Continuing on from there.

00:22:42--> 00:22:52

There are a number of points that we need to address, but I think one of the most important of these points is dividing dreams up into types.

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

described for us three

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

times types of dreams.

00:23:09--> 00:23:13

The first type of dream is a true dream.

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

Or you can see a good dream.

00:23:21--> 00:23:23

And this dream is from Allah.

00:23:26--> 00:23:34

The second kind of dream is a bad dream, or a nightmare. And this is from the shaytaan.

00:23:37--> 00:23:45

And the third kind of dream is a confused dream which comes from the self, what they call alcohol for

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

me, it's like a mixup, that comes from your own self.

00:23:53--> 00:23:57

So how do we know? Or how can we

00:23:58--> 00:24:10

divide up these dreams so that we know which dreams come from Allah and which dreams come from the shaytaan and which dreams come from the self.

00:24:14--> 00:24:29

So there are a number of of sort of guidelines that we can cover as to which of these dreams come from Allah, and which of these dreams come from the Shaitaan and which of these dreams come from ourselves?

00:24:30--> 00:24:36

However, before that, it's worth mentioning the Tafseer of I live in Abbey toilet.

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

And I think this is very, very interesting.

00:24:41--> 00:24:45

It is the tip seal of the statement of Allah azza wa jal

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

Allahu elf l m fusa Hina. Moti ha

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Alamo Toyota Cyril O'Hara illa edgeley masama in Nevada Nicola iottie Nicole mia trafico

00:25:10--> 00:25:12

Allah azza wa jal

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

causes the souls

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

to die.

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

Alpha is not actually death.

00:25:24--> 00:25:32

And we're going to get off into a side topic, but it's important to understand, first of all, what is l amphis? What is a nefs? What's the soul

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

and nefs is two things together,

00:25:36--> 00:25:46

are roho will just set the soul and the body, the soul and the body together we call it an nefs

00:25:48--> 00:25:52

the soul and the body together we call it an nefs. We know what the body is.

00:25:53--> 00:25:58

We know the body is and as for the soul, we don't know much about it.

00:25:59--> 00:26:04

kulu from an embryo or B, say the soul is from

00:26:05--> 00:26:12

the affairs of my Lord the soul is from the things that only Allah azzawajal knows about.

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

Coolio roho min Embrey Robbie.

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

The neffs is made up of the soul and the body.

00:26:27--> 00:26:35

Allah azza wa jal said that Allah azza wa jal causes the neffs to die,

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

yet awful amphis

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

however, we need to understand this word worth.

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

Because it confuses people because they translated directly as death.

00:26:51--> 00:27:02

But that's not the meaning of alfalfa and the meaning of alfalfa very briefly is Steve, which means for Allah to give you your appointed time

00:27:04--> 00:27:10

for Allah to give you your appointed time, and there are two kinds of alpha

00:27:11--> 00:27:20

one alpha two and Cobra and warfare two and Sora. There is a major wafaa and a minor wafaa.

00:27:22--> 00:27:23

The major one

00:27:24--> 00:27:30

is death. This is your time limit we eat after which Allah azza wa jal

00:27:31--> 00:27:34

does not allow you to return to this earth.

00:27:37--> 00:27:43

And he Allah subhanaw taala does not allow you to live any more upon the earth, rather you go into the life of the barossa.

00:27:46--> 00:27:57

This is Alba l Cobra, the major ending of term the major term and because it is the end of the term.

00:27:59--> 00:28:11

It's when Eliza gel gives you the end of your time. And as for alpha Sagara, the small warfare the mini term it is the term that you are awake.

00:28:13--> 00:28:23

It's the term that you are awake. Now this idea is very strongly related to dream interpretation and we need it so let's try to understand it. Allah subhanaw taala told us

00:28:26--> 00:28:42

Allah huya telefone amphis hain mot Allah azza wa jal causes the term to end of the people at the time of their death. Okay, so at the time of their death, the term ends

00:28:44--> 00:28:57

well, let's he lent her much female anatomy her and allow causes the term to end of the people who are awake when they have not yet died in their dream in their sleep.

00:29:00--> 00:29:21

Foam sequel Letty cabo la Helmholtz. So the one who goes to sleep, their soul detaches from the body, not completely because the heart is beating. And if you you know, pour water on them, they will wake up. But the soul detaches somewhat from the body

00:29:23--> 00:29:32

and it goes up to the heavens. And Allah azza wa jal if he decreased death if he decreased, that person is not going to wake up from their sleep.

00:29:33--> 00:29:51

Then Eliza gel seizes the soul for Yom ceequal, Letty acaba, la Helmholtz, the one that he decrees death for this one is not allowed to go back to the body. And so the disconnect between the body and the soul it becomes complete.

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

It becomes complete

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

while you're seated,

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

and he lets the other one go

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

Illa jelly mo Simba for a fixed time.

00:30:05--> 00:30:11

So now the person goes to sleep what happens? The soul ascends to Ally's origin.

00:30:12--> 00:30:19

At the time that the soul ascends, all of the other souls are also ascending of the people who are asleep.

00:30:20--> 00:30:27

Likewise the souls of the people who have been kept, who have died and who have been kept by Allah azza wa jal.

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

So, there is a gathering of the or why there is a gathering of the soul

00:30:36--> 00:30:46

with Allah subhanaw taala How does it happen allies origin knows best how it happens, we don't know how it happens. Allah Subhana Allah knows best how it happens.

00:30:48--> 00:31:01

At this point, some of the souls that have come up from their sleep, Allah will decree them to die they are never going to wake up again. So those people what will happen is Allah will keep their soul

00:31:03--> 00:31:28

and the other souls will be allowed to return. Of course the soul will return back to the body. In any case, when the body is placed into the grave, the soul will return back to the body in the grave, because of the hadith of Al Bara. ebru algebra the Allahu anhu this hadith of Al Bara no acid in which he describes when the soul comes back to the body into the grave and the life of the barossa.

00:31:29--> 00:31:38

But why is this important for us? It's important for us because of a hadith narrated from Omar Ibn Al Khattab robiola one

00:31:40--> 00:31:44

that he said, How strange is the dream of a man

00:31:45--> 00:31:51

that he goes to sleep and sees something that he could never have imagined.

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

So his dream becomes true.

00:31:58--> 00:32:01

like as if someone took him by the hand

00:32:03--> 00:32:08

and another man sees a dream, and nothing happens of it.

00:32:10--> 00:32:20

So one man he sees a dream it becomes true mithila fella is so bad, like the rising of the sun. And the next man he sees a dream and nothing at all happens.

00:32:21--> 00:32:42

One man sees a dream it becomes true. One man sees a dream. Nothing happens. rhodiola answered Elijah. How it's so strange. It's so big to see this. I live in Abu Talib rhodiola and he said ephedra obihiro cabbie Delica miramont meaning Should I tell you why this happens or ameerul momineen.

00:32:44--> 00:32:52

So he said Allah who yet our full force hain mot her, he read the ayah. Then he said,

00:32:53--> 00:33:01

so Allah azza wa jal causes all of these souls to die, not to die, but I mean, like some of them go to sleep and some of them die.

00:33:04--> 00:33:14

So whatever they see in the heavens with Allah is a true dream. Whatever they see with the heavens with a from Allah is a true dream.

00:33:15--> 00:33:18

What is our Salat? ILA, I said,

00:33:20--> 00:33:29

Whatever they see when they are coming down back to their bodies, this is what this is.

00:33:30--> 00:33:43

When the shaytaan meets them in the heavens, as they are coming down, the shavon meets them, and the shaytaan lies to that soul, and tells that so false things.

00:33:44--> 00:33:48

So this is the false dream that the person sees.

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

And this narration from Elizabeth Abbey

00:33:55--> 00:34:13

and you have to say it's not something that a person would report, without having heard it from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it appears to be for Hawkman model for and it has the ruling of a Hadith of the Prophet sighs Helen, because it's not from my you calobra right, it's not from something somebody can just guess.

00:34:15--> 00:34:20

So the soul goes up. When the soul is with Allah, what it sees is true.

00:34:22--> 00:34:45

What Allah sends the other souls back, while ally sending the souls back, the shell team come and they meet with those souls, and they whisper to those souls and they lie to those souls and this is the dream that is caused by the shaytaan. So as the soul is coming back, the shaytan is whispering falsehood, and this is the false dream.

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

So this now returns us back to our dividing dreams into three categories. The first category is a true dream that is from Allah. Now, the first thing we have to mention about this is just because it is

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Form a law does not mean it's always a pleasant dream.

00:35:05--> 00:35:10

Be careful about this because this is one of the biggest mistakes people make.

00:35:11--> 00:35:42

They believe that a good dream from Allah means a dream where I feel happy is from Allah and a dream where I feel sad is from shaytaan. And a dream when I don't know how I feel is from me. That's not the case. A person may well see a bad dream, which is from Allah azza wa jal. How does that happen? What do we mean? It's a true dream. But it has some negative things in it to wake you up, or to make you

00:35:43--> 00:35:57

make Toba or to warn you about something that is going to happen. For example, a person sees that their house is burning down, for example,

00:35:58--> 00:36:28

this may be from the shape and the shape, it is just whispering to your your house is gonna burn down, your house is gonna burn down, your house is gonna burn down. And so you become scared. And then you realize it's just a lie from the shaytan. But it could also be a warning from Allah subhanho wa Taala. However, the two do differ, and the scholars do mention a difference between the two. Now, dream is not easy. It's not easy to tell the difference between the two. But there are differences between the two.

00:36:29--> 00:37:03

One of the main differences is that the dream from a law is not fear. It's not a nightmare. It's not something that grips you. Our dream from our law is a warning, it's a truth. So first of all, when you wake up, you remember it very, very clearly. And you remember features from it that you think are very important. And you don't wake in a state of fear. It's not a nightmare, where you just become so scared and so shaken, that you feel you know, like you feel like terrified.

00:37:04--> 00:37:23

But something where you see something of benefit to you, it may be something that you see which is good. And this is usually the case as martial arts, something good. It may be something you see which is not good, but it's got a warning for you. It's got a lesson for you, you understand.

00:37:25--> 00:37:31

For example, I'll just give you an example. And it's, again, we have a little less time but I just give you an example.

00:37:33--> 00:37:41

A person sees themselves being chased by a lion. And they wake up shaking, terrified, you know, like, I'm so scared, I saw this, this is from the shape.

00:37:43--> 00:37:54

This is from the shape, there is no lesson there is nothing to learn. There is nothing you know, like beneficial in it. A person sees themselves being led towards the hellfire.

00:37:56--> 00:38:11

And they see themselves being led towards the Hellfire by a particular thing. For example, they see the music they are listening to the singer that they that sings the music is leading them to the hellfire.

00:38:12--> 00:38:37

This is much more likely to be a dream from Allah. Why because there is a lesson in it, there is a benefit in it, there is a wisdom in it, you can understand that our eyes telling me that if I keep on listening to this music, it's going to lead me to jahannam because I see myself in the dream. And I see myself following the person who is singing and I see myself following them into jahannam.

00:38:38--> 00:38:42

So even though the second dream is more scary than the first dream,

00:38:43--> 00:39:10

but the second dream you can see there is a wisdom you can see there is a benefit, you can understand that there is a message to be had from that. Whereas just waking up terrified in a cold sweat you know like that I'm being chased by something, there is no benefit in this. So this is how you can tell the dream that is from Allah and from the dream that is from the shape and of course the overwhelming number of dreams that are from Allah, Aslan, good dreams.

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

They are themselves good dreams.

00:39:15--> 00:39:59

As for the dreams that come from yourself, the easiest way to tell them is that they are very confused. They have no clear message. They have no clear points that you can hold on to you can't remember them very well. You slip from one to the other to the other. And they usually relate to things that you have been thinking about in your daily life. For example, you know you're worried about your car, you have to repair your car, you have to repair your car. So then you see a dream you are repairing your car, and you know you then you see another dream you're doing something else. Now this is related to the things that you are worrying about during that day.

00:40:00--> 00:40:25

The things that you're thinking about during that day, and this is also a holiday, this is the mixed up dreams of the self. Now if you're listening carefully, you'll realize that it's not so easy to tell the three apart. There are guidelines. How do we know it's not so easy? What about the dream of the king at the time of use of the dream of the king at the time of use of

00:40:27--> 00:40:32

La Salah when he said I see niara

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

Sabha karate,

00:40:36--> 00:40:36


00:40:38--> 00:40:41

I see seven fat cows.

00:40:42--> 00:40:50

And so on to the end of the dream. What did the people around him say when he said the stream called raw food.

00:40:51--> 00:40:58

They said this is just your mixed up head. This is not a this is not a true dream. This dream was a true dream.

00:41:00--> 00:41:07

But because the people were not experienced in it, they said, I belong to a club. It's just mixed up.

00:41:08--> 00:41:33

So that shows to us it's not so easy. It's not the easiest thing. It requires experience. It requires cyber, it requires understanding. But generally the dream that is from Allah, you first of all wake up feeling that it is significant, not always, but usually, you wake up feeling that it is significant. You feel like this is important. I need to relate this dream to somebody.

00:41:35--> 00:41:50

You also about this dream, you also remember it clearly now you may remember a nightmare. Clearly you may remember anything but generally the dream that is from Allah, you have a clarity that you don't have with the other dreams.

00:41:51--> 00:42:05

And generally you see a benefit in it or a point or there is something that you feel needs to be understood. Okay, so this is the dream for Allah, the dream from the shaytaan it has no benefit in it, no good in it, no wisdom in it. It's just fear.

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

It's just fear.

00:42:08--> 00:42:17

And the dream that is advisable. And usually it's something you're thinking about that day, or something that's been on your mind. And it's your own mind is just replaying things in your head.

00:42:19--> 00:42:20

And this is a Marchesa,

00:42:22--> 00:42:27

a miracle from Allah azza wa jal, because if we think about it, if we think about it,

00:42:28--> 00:43:08

and we think about what scientists and psychologists and all these, you know, biologists and BP various people, and, you know, philosophers and all these people who talk about the human body and the human mind, how they talk about dreams, none of them understand this. Every single one of them, can speak speaks about them, it's your brain is replaying what it wants. It's what you hope for, it's what you fear, but they haven't understood that there are three kinds of dream. And each one of these kinds of dream has an etiquette equality. Each one of these kinds of dream it has an etiquette. Now, I'm not going to speak too much about the etiquettes because we're going to run out

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

of time, and I want to talk about the interpretation, but briefly, there are etiquettes with regard to the good dream.

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

The prophets I seldom instructed us only tell it to the one who you love.

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

Why should we only tell it to the one who we love?

00:43:27--> 00:43:29

Do not remember the story of use of

00:43:31--> 00:43:44

what did you say to use of law taco sauce Raka Allah wa t cafe key to like a Qaeda, don't tell your brothers about this dream, because they're gonna plot against you.

00:43:46--> 00:43:53

So if you go around saying, I saw the prophets, I sell them and he told me that I'm going to learn Islam and I'm going to teach it to people and I'm so happy

00:43:54--> 00:43:59

you're going to get hit by so many times the evil eye you're going to be like a target at the shooting range.

00:44:01--> 00:44:06

Just getting hit one after the other after the other after the other by jealousy has said I in

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

by the plots of people.

00:44:11--> 00:44:17

So who do you tell your dream to? You tell it to the one who you love the one who loves you the one you love him?

00:44:19--> 00:44:34

Someone that you have a close relationship, someone that you don't fear? They're their eyes, and someone who has the knowledge to be able to help you with it. There are two types mentioned in the Hadeeth. One is that you related to enough

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

to a person who can give you advice. This person may not be a more a bear. They may not be an interpreter of dreams, but they can give you advice. Sometimes people relate dreams to me and I say to them, I'm not a more I bet I don't interpret dreams. But I will give you advice. I will tell you I think this is a good dream. Why will tell you go to the show or I will

00:45:00--> 00:45:07

Tell You don't worry about it. inshallah, don't think about it again, or I will tell you this is from shaper. And if somebody gives you advice,

00:45:08--> 00:45:20

or somebody who is an alum in the science who can interpret it for you. So in some ways, we can divide that into three people. Either you tell it to somebody who you love.

00:45:21--> 00:45:28

Or you tell it to somebody who can give you advice, or you tell it to somebody who can interpret it for you.

00:45:29--> 00:45:35

But you don't put it on Facebook, because otherwise, you're going to bring yourself a lot of negativity out of that dream.

00:45:38--> 00:45:41

The second type of dream is the dream that comes from the shaytaan

00:45:43--> 00:45:48

What about this dream? Don't tell anybody about it?

00:45:51--> 00:46:07

Well, I you had this OBE I had, don't tell anybody about it. Seek refuge with Allah from the shape, spit three times to your left hand side, turn over and sleep on your other side. If it really scares you get up and pray to Raka

00:46:08--> 00:46:14

these are all etiquettes and inshallah I'll tell you where you can find these later on. But these are etiquettes of the battery.

00:46:16--> 00:46:25

Now, with regard to the good dream, then good dreams are of two basic types. Now we're going to get into the interpretation.

00:46:27--> 00:46:31

To dreams true dreams are of two basic types.

00:46:32--> 00:46:36

The first one is a dream that simply comes true.

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

The first one

00:46:40--> 00:46:44

is a dream that simply comes true.

00:46:46--> 00:46:48

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:50--> 00:46:51

told us

00:46:52--> 00:46:57

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that when the hour comes,

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

when the hour comes near,

00:47:02--> 00:47:05

there will almost not be any

00:47:08--> 00:47:10

dream except that it comes true.

00:47:11--> 00:47:30

This Hadith is narrated by Al Bukhari and Muslim and the wording of the Hadith is Enoch tala bizarre man. When the time comes near to Yama, piano. When the time to Yama Yama comes near. Lamb techwood. Lamb tikka, lamb tikka, el mini tech.

00:47:31--> 00:47:35

The dream of the believer will almost never lie.

00:47:37--> 00:47:47

What else doc welcome. Oh, yeah, as doc Oh, come Howdy, sir. And the most truthful of you in dreams is the most truthful of you in speech.

00:47:48--> 00:47:53

So the first kind of dream is what it is a dream that simply comes true.

00:47:55--> 00:48:00

You see yourself making hatch, what happens? You make hatch.

00:48:02--> 00:48:10

And from the Quran, this is one of the two dreams that use of La Salaam, interpreted in the prison.

00:48:13--> 00:48:19

One of the people so what he said I see myself as zero hombre I see myself pressing wine.

00:48:21--> 00:48:29

The other one said, I see myself carrying bread on my head and the birds eating fruit from it.

00:48:32--> 00:49:02

So the first dream was a dream that came true. He saw himself pressing wine and he pressed wine. Bear in mind that Eben Massoud said neither of those dreams were actually true. And in fact, both of those dreams were made up by the people in the prison in order to test use of knowledge. But that's a separate issue. whether that's true or not, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It's narrated from him that he said that neither of them saw a dream but they invented the dream in order to test the use of knowledge.

00:49:03--> 00:49:12

In any case, whether that's true or not, one of those dreams came true. Like the dreams the prophets I seldom used to have.

00:49:13--> 00:49:22

It came mithila felt so bad, like the rising of the sun. The dream you see yourself pressing wine, you press wine, you see yourself making hard you make hot, juicy yourself.

00:49:24--> 00:49:46

traveling to a certain country, you travel to that country, and the nearer we get towards yomo piano, the closer those dreams will become to being the majority, Gani, they will become the majority of dreams, such as the Prophet sighs lm said, The dream of the believer will almost never ever lie. And almost every dream The believer sees will come true

00:49:48--> 00:50:00

when the time to walk comes towards yamaka piano. And that's because that time will be an extremely difficult time and a time of where people will be very, very scared and a time weapon

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

People will have very little information and a time when Islam will be hurried Islam will be strange. Therefore Allah azza wa jal will give a kurama He will give a blessing, a miracle to those people of being able to see true dreams in order to give them some comfort during the severity of this time.

00:50:20--> 00:50:26

So this is the first kind of dream. The second kind of dream is what we call Roja. Rumsey. Yeah,

00:50:27--> 00:50:29

a dream of symbols.

00:50:30--> 00:50:34

Like the man who saw himself carrying the bread on his head.

00:50:35--> 00:50:43

Did he carry bread on his head? No, he was crucified and the birds eat from his dead body.

00:50:46--> 00:50:56

So he did not what he saw in his dream, or what he related to use of did not happen as he saw it, but it was symbolic.

00:50:58--> 00:51:07

And this is also difficult. How do we tell between a dream which is real and a dream, which is symbolic, for example, you see yourself making Hajj

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

it may be that you make Hajj

00:51:11--> 00:51:15

and it may be other things as well.

00:51:16--> 00:51:26

It may be other things as well, because there are several things that Hajj is symbolic of Hajj has several symbolisms

00:51:27--> 00:51:29

from those is the other.

00:51:30--> 00:51:44

What I've been finesse he will hedge give the advantage to the people to come to the Hajj. So perhaps a person will see themselves making Hajj and this means that they will give the event

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

for example.

00:51:48--> 00:51:57

So there is a difference between this one and between this one one of them comes true, and one of them is symbolic of something else.

00:51:59--> 00:52:05

Now it's very important that we understand one more point when it comes to

00:52:07--> 00:52:13

when it comes to dreams is that the interpretation of dreams is a very serious thing.

00:52:15--> 00:52:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned

00:52:21--> 00:52:39

that the greatest of lies act verbal chasm, or minack. Rebel cadott were efoil Fira and the worst of falsifications is for a person to invent something that they saw in their dream that they didn't see.

00:52:41--> 00:52:57

for someone to lie about something they saw in their dream that they didn't see. Why because what are you lying about? You're lying about a piece of prophethood you're lying about the only part of prophethood that remains on this earth.

00:52:59--> 00:53:02

So lying about it is effort Fira

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

it is the worst of lying what accurate well Kevin, and the worst of lies

00:53:11--> 00:53:48

and you're lying about something which could affect a person's any people's lives how people see you people's interactions with you. Of course it doesn't make the halal haram haram halal because we don't interpret dreams or we don't use the interpretation of dreams to make halal haram haram halal. The religion of Islam is complete and Yama XML Tula come Dena come was meant to LA come near Mati what are the Tula como Islam Medina today the religion is complete there is no nothing new. No one is going to come to you in your dream.

00:53:49--> 00:53:59

Like the some of the Shia and Moses always say that you come someone comes to you in your dream and he says you don't have to pray anymore. Allah has lifted the prayer from you.

00:54:01--> 00:54:08

This is not the case. Nothing in your dream can make the halal haram or make the Haram halat

00:54:09--> 00:54:17

rather, the dream is only Alibaba shirat telling you something that will happen or giving you some advice or giving you some warning about something.

00:54:20--> 00:54:32

So we learned that these true dreams these have these two divisions reality and symbolic a real dream and a symbolic dream. So now we need to understand how we are how the people of knowledge

00:54:33--> 00:54:39

interpret these dreams and how they understand these dreams.

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

So the first way and again I'm going to summarize because we have so much to cover and I want to do it as a course but just like to get you interested in the topic. The first way is analogy to parables from the Quran and the Sunnah

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

From well known scenes and poetry

00:55:06--> 00:55:17

so this is one of the major ways that we interpret dreams. This is symbolic dreams. So we interpret the symbolism in the light of the Quran.

00:55:18--> 00:55:33

And the Bible bearing in mind what I was about to say before and I didn't make my point was that it is a serious matter. Because use of said to the two people in the prison called the Emerald levy fee test fit on.

00:55:35--> 00:55:45

The matter that you have sought a fatwa on, has been decreed. Notice the use of called dream interpretation what fatwa

00:55:47--> 00:55:52

meaning that interpreting a dream is exactly the same as giving a fatwa.

00:55:54--> 00:56:30

If you're not qualified to give a fatwa, you don't give a fatwa. And if you're not qualified to interpret a dream, you don't interpret a dream. So now down to the basic methods number one analogy to something in the Quran, or something in the Sunnah, or something from the common sayings and poetry. Number two, by analogy to objects or situations from our daily experience, and number three, taking meanings from words and names of persons and objects that appear in the dream.

00:56:31--> 00:57:01

Number one, PS notice two of these are PS making analogy looking for similarities. Okay, Hodges mentioned in the Quran How is Hodge mentioned in the Quran? What is associated with harjinder Quran? What parallel Can I make with Hajj in the Quran? How can I relate it to something from the Sunnah, making an analogy between the Quran and the Sunnah, and between what has been seen in the dream. Number two, something from our daily lives

00:57:03--> 00:57:22

and is something instead of from the Quran and the Sunnah, something in the dream that relates to something that is in our daily lives a tangible object, and number three, relating to the name of the place of the person. For example, you see yourself outside of the door of Abu hanifa.

00:57:25--> 00:57:31

You see yourself outside of the door of a man whose name is Abu Hashim, well, I will hash

00:57:32--> 00:57:35

and hash in Arabic, it means the resurrection.

00:57:37--> 00:57:47

So it may well be that this dream that you are relating, it doesn't relate to that man, but it relates to the resurrection because his name his

00:57:48--> 00:57:54

resurrection, or his name in Arabic has multiple meanings and one of the meanings is the resurrection.

00:57:56--> 00:58:00

In one dream, it's narrated from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:58:01--> 00:58:05

regarding a man who used to sell

00:58:06--> 00:58:07


00:58:08--> 00:58:17

and I think if I remember right, the his name was ignore top and tada in taba in Arabic means to become pure or to become good.

00:58:19--> 00:58:41

So here you have links between the names of things, and between what you see in your dream. So these are three of the main points. There's a very important point before we come on to examples. There are very there's a very, very, very important point to make before I give you an example of each one, and that is that dreams differ

00:58:43--> 00:58:45

from person to person.

00:58:46--> 00:59:00

And I'm going to tell you a beautiful story. And if I remember rightly, and I won't quote exactly it was from one of the tablet it might have been even CD. A man came to him and said to him, I see myself making the oven

00:59:03--> 00:59:03

What did he say to him?

00:59:05--> 00:59:07

said to him, you're gonna go to Hajj inshallah.

00:59:09--> 00:59:17

You see yourself making the other you're going to go to hatch, another man cave. He said, I see myself making the other. What did he say to him?

00:59:19--> 00:59:20

said You're a thief.

00:59:22--> 00:59:44

I Masekela This one is going to hide you This one is a thief. How do we know first of all, we said that Hajj is associated with the other what I've been financing will hedge give the as an for the people to come to hedge. This is an analogy with the Quran right? Give the other than for the people to come to hedge. This man came he says okay, you're going to go to hedge

00:59:45--> 00:59:51

the next man. The man is also mentioned about a CIF in sort of use of

00:59:52--> 01:00:00

a venom or I've been on a year to help you in a coma sorry, cone. Then the more either

01:00:00--> 01:00:03

called out or people of the caravan you are thieves.

01:00:05--> 01:00:12

type which event is for which person? How did this tab a distinguish between this person and this person?

01:00:14--> 01:00:47

By knowing the person themselves and their situation, because dreams change according to a person, and according to their circumstances, according to their piety. So a pious man comes and says, you know, you know him to be a pious religious person, I see myself making the event, inshallah, you're going to go to Hajj, this person comes, who is, you know, known for doing every kind of cheating and lying and stealing? And he says, I see myself making the event, you're a thief.

01:00:48--> 01:00:58

How do you tell the difference by the person? So it's not possible anytime you read a book that says, The van means Hodge, this is not true.

01:01:01--> 01:01:45

or anytime you see that milk means knowledge, it doesn't work like that. It's dependent on the person. It's dependent on the circumstances. That's why when you hear the scholars of Islam interpret a dream, you hear them ask the person, Are you married? Do you have this situation? Do you have any children? Is this your situation? Are you struggling with something at the moment, they get information so they can see which of the possible answers if you've ever looked at a dream interpretation book, you know, you see something like the Adhan, and it's mentioned like 15 things, hadj calling out being in charge of people, being above your people, that you will have a voice that

01:01:45--> 01:01:55

will be heard that you will get some power that you will get some control over people that you will do this, that you will build a message, that you will be a diet to Allah that you will learn beneficial knowledge and teach it which one.

01:01:57--> 01:02:17

Each one of them has a reference from the Quran and the Sunnah. But at the same time, it also depends on the circumstances of the person. And this is where the gift comes. This is where we get out of the science and into the gift. Because the people who have the gift from Allah, they instinctively know which of those many things applies to the person.

01:02:19--> 01:02:33

Five, let's take some examples of these different things. So for example, let's take an analogy of the Quran. Somebody says, I've seen in a dream, a rope

01:02:35--> 01:02:41

and I am holding one end of the rope and my friend is holding the other end of the rope.

01:02:43--> 01:02:56

Tie Do we have something from the Quran, where a rope is mentioned that we can we can give it an analogy. Allah azza wa jal said Well, I tell Sumo, be happily law hegemony and voila for Rocco.

01:02:57--> 01:02:59

Hold on to the rope of Allah.

01:03:01--> 01:03:25

And don't be divided. So a rope could be a promise, or a contract or a covenant, because this is what it is used for. In the Quran. Does that mean that's the answer? No, that doesn't have to be the answer. But we just want to give one example somebody sees a rope. So this rope can refer to a covenant or a promise because Allah said, we're artists to be heavily like Jamia, like

01:03:27--> 01:03:31

a person sees themselves drinking from a vessel.

01:03:33--> 01:03:42

Do we have any mention of vessels? many too many. That's the problem. But let's just give you one. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:03:43--> 01:03:44

Wu Wei deca

01:03:45--> 01:03:54

so Kaka Bukhari Be gentle with the fragile vessels What's he talking about? Who are the fragile vessels women

01:03:56--> 01:04:00

so now a vessel might represent a woman

01:04:01--> 01:04:27

because the prophets lie Selim described women as being fragile vessels calvaria yani like crystal glasses vessels. So if somebody sees kawari in his dream like a fragile like a glass vessel or a crystal vessel, then it may be that this is a relating to a woman, it may be related to something else because these mentioned I mentioned many times in the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:04:29--> 01:04:31

But I'm just showing you how they make analogies between the one

01:04:33--> 01:04:36

somebody sees themselves in a dream and their hands are long.

01:04:38--> 01:04:43

Their hands are very long and they have very long hands. This may mean

01:04:44--> 01:04:56

charity giving charity Why? Because the Arabic seeing the well known Arabic say, when you say yeah, do huhtala his hand is long. It means he is charitable.

01:05:00--> 01:05:19

We could make an analogy with something that we know of, for example, somebody says, I see a star in the sky and I'm following that star, that star could be a scholar, because the scholars are a means of guidance like the stars are a means of guidance.

01:05:21--> 01:05:28

The scholars are a means of finding your way, like the stars are a meaning means of finding your way for example.

01:05:30--> 01:05:34

So here we could compare it to something in our lives some some sort of facts.

01:05:35--> 01:05:48

And we could relate it to words for example, what about if a person says as an example, I saw myself in a dream at brother silence house?

01:05:50--> 01:06:07

A brother, silence house. So the word silent in Arabic It means safety, to be safe, Salama, kala, you are safe, you're selling your asylum you okay? You're not going to be harmed. So it could be that a trial is going to come, but Allah is going to save you.

01:06:09--> 01:06:22

So the point is that on the last one that we do sometimes by inversion, by inversion, Sophia might mean security. Why? Because Allah azza wa jal says,

01:06:26--> 01:06:33

Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran Wallah, you bet dilemna home, minbar the whole fee him and Allah will replace their safety with

01:06:35--> 01:06:38

Allah will replace their fear with safety.

01:06:39--> 01:07:20

Allah will replace their fear with safety. So this is in version. Some of the scholars mentioned other ways like breaking down Arabic words into letters and then each letter goes to the but we don't think that this is a very reliable way of doing dream interpretation because this way, is it becomes like what magicians do and it becomes like some secret science that nobody can understand. I don't think except in maybe some rare circumstances that it's appropriate to play with words like they like they say that soda or soda means so under an evil medicine or an evil sickness, because su means evil and damn In sickness and when you put them together it makes soda which is black. And so

01:07:20--> 01:07:55

black means sickness, this is like getting very difficult to interpret. rather more than that, basically, you have analogies from the Quran and the Sunnah, and from poetry and well known sayings. And then you have analogies with things we see like the stars, we know what they mean, the sun the moon, we know what it is, for example, you know you or a person's name like you see yourself with a person called Salim. Or for example, there is an aeration I believe about Abu Bakr, that he was seen in a dream shackled and chained outside the house of alhaja.

01:07:56--> 01:08:04

And it was said about this that it means that his religion will be kept safe for him until yamaki ama, so you have like

01:08:05--> 01:08:07

relating to people's names.

01:08:08--> 01:08:09

There is no doubt

01:08:11--> 01:08:16

that as we said the dream is affected by the dreamer and the environment.

01:08:17--> 01:08:24

A dream may have a different meaning during summer than winter, and a different meaning in times of peace than in times of war.

01:08:27--> 01:08:31

Because of the different circumstances that a person finds themselves in.

01:08:33--> 01:08:43

However, what isn't true is that there is no evidence that dreams vary based on when you have them. The prophet SAW Selim used to ask his companions about dreams after fragile.

01:08:44--> 01:09:11

But there is no evidence that a dream after failure is more truthful than a dream after Asia or that a dream in the middle of the night is a lie in a dream at the end of the night is the truth. None of this has any evidence for it at all. Rather what we say is the dreams at any time can be true and dreams at any time can be false. However, the Sunnah of the Prophet sighs elements that he used to ask his companions about their dreams after Salatu future.

01:09:18--> 01:09:24

So what is the basic principle or the basic procedure, the person listens to the dream.

01:09:25--> 01:09:48

They take the elements of the dream that they think they have useful meanings. Each useful element is interpreted according to an idea from the Quran or Hadith from the Prophet, so I sell them or poetry or tangible object or somebody named any one of the acceptable ways. And then all of the elements are merged together to bring the whole meaning of the dream.

01:09:49--> 01:09:53

If the dream carries multiple conflicting meanings,

01:09:55--> 01:10:00

so you end up with a meaning that is, let's say positive and another meaning

01:10:00--> 01:10:33

From a couple of elements that seem to be negative, then you select the meaning that agrees better with all of the relevant factors with the persons and the person's environment, the person's piety, the person situation, and you select which one goes better with that. And the interpretation is related to the dream of social status, physical condition, appearance, and so on. So hopefully that has explained the basic principle, we look at all of the elements. This is when the dream is Rumsey when the dream is symbolic, when the dream is true, you don't need to interpret anything, it just comes true.

01:10:34--> 01:11:03

When the dream is symbolic, what happens you take each symbolic elements, you interpret it in a valid way, you put them together to make a narrative, and you relate it to the person's environment, to the person status to the person's religion, to the person's, you know, appearance and all of that, until you bring something which matches and that is something which is a gift our eyes or gel gives to whomsoever He wants

01:11:07--> 01:11:08

from his own man

01:11:09--> 01:11:11

or from the home of Muhammad Sallallahu it was.

01:11:13--> 01:11:18

I wanted to give you some examples if we can.

01:11:19--> 01:11:48

One or two examples before that. What we wanted to cover is the qualities of a person who interprets dreams. We mentioned that the prophets I send them told us that the most truthful others in dreams will be the most truthful hours in speech. Therefore, the first of the qualities of the dream interpreter after piety and righteousness should be truthfulness in speech.

01:11:49--> 01:11:57

If you want to be truthful in interpreting dreams and in seeing true dreams, then you should be truthful in your in your speech.

01:11:59--> 01:12:02

You should have good knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:12:04--> 01:12:46

You should be well acquainted with the interpretations of the Sahaba and the major scholars. Now be careful because everybody knows that for example, even Syrian was a major figure in dream interpretation. But the book which is attributed to even Syrian is a fabrication. This book which is even Syrians interpretation of dreams is a complete fabrication, and it contains many evil things in it many things which contradict the Quran and the Sunnah. So be careful about just picking up a book and saying this is Eben Syrians interpretation for example, rather what you should do is you should be well acquainted by reading for example, the chapter of dream interpretation from Sohail Buhari

01:12:46--> 01:12:59

chapters from Sahih Muslim reading well known books of scholars understanding the various ahaadeeth looking at the dreams in the Quran, we didn't even have time to even cover the dreams in the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:13:00--> 01:13:17

And from each of these, you develop your skill. That doesn't mean you'll be given the gift. But at least you develop as much skill as you can, up to a point, then you work on being truthful and righteous in your speech. And you ask Allah azza wa jal to bless you with knowledge that will benefit you.

01:13:20--> 01:13:33

You should be a person of wisdom, a person of mercy and a person of concern about others well being so many times, you know, how what did we say the Prophet sighs I'm told relate the dream to the one that you love.

01:13:35--> 01:13:59

You know, if a person is just wants to interpret dreams, so he can sit in front of the people, and he can have a microphone and he can be, you know, like, in control of people, and he can say, yeah, you know, you're going to do this tomorrow, and you're going to do this tomorrow, your business is going to fail, and you're going to be rich, and then this person will never succeed. While the person wants to care for the people. He doesn't want to show off, he doesn't want to tell people about the good dreams that happened to him.

01:14:01--> 01:14:08

what he wants to do is he wants to just help people to do the right thing and give them the best advice that he can.

01:14:09--> 01:14:20

And a person should be mature and experienced. You should have the maturity of knowledge and be able to be able to choose what to say and what not to say.

01:14:21--> 01:14:23

Because not every dream should be interpreted.

01:14:24--> 01:14:28

What are you going to do and this is a true story that happened to one of the scholars.

01:14:29--> 01:14:34

And I think it's a beautiful story. So I'm going to kind of come to my conclusion, I'm going to tell you about it inshallah.

01:14:35--> 01:14:41

A man came to one of the scholars and he said chef, who interprets dreams he said she I've seen a dream.

01:14:42--> 01:14:44

sous chef. I've seen a dream.

01:14:46--> 01:14:49

So he related the dream to the share the share said,

01:14:50--> 01:14:52

clear inshallah it's good for you Don't worry about

01:14:53--> 01:14:57

notice she didn't interpret the dreams. It's okay. It's good for you.

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

The man said, Tell me what it

01:15:01--> 01:15:04

said, leave it Don't worry about it. It's good for you inshallah.

01:15:06--> 01:15:22

sous chef, tell me what it is sick. Leave it, it's okay inshallah hair. It's good for you. Then maybe I don't remember he swore by our law or he forced to share one way or another. Maybe he said, biLlahi I asked you by Allah Tell me what it is. The Sheikh said

01:15:26--> 01:15:28

you will die after 30 days.

01:15:29--> 01:15:31

Or you will die within 30 days.

01:15:32--> 01:15:37

muscala now the man thinks he's gonna die. Call us.

01:15:40--> 01:15:48

Allahumma Stan, he's crying. He's distraught. He's telling that his life is like this. All right, what will I do? Why? How will I

01:15:49--> 01:16:03

so many masiva so many problems for him. When What happened? The chef just said, leave it. It's good for you. inshallah, what will happen to it will be, hey, don't don't let it worry. But when he pushed him, he said, Okay. The dream is you're going to die in 30 days.

01:16:05--> 01:16:09

So he became so upset. He went to another show.

01:16:12--> 01:16:21

And he said to the share, and I'm recalling as best I can, because it was a brother who told me about this, who knew the story. He went to another share.

01:16:22--> 01:16:31

And he said to the Share, share, this share here told me I'm gonna die in 30 days. He said, no problem. Tell me the dream.

01:16:33--> 01:16:38

Tell me the dream. So he told him the dream. He said the chef made a mistake.

01:16:40--> 01:16:41

He said, hamdulillah

01:16:42--> 01:16:50

I'm going now here. I'm fine. I said, Don't worry, she made a mistake. So he left and the students sat around the ship. They said Shay,

01:16:52--> 01:16:57

he didn't make a mistake. What we know from you is that this dream means he's gonna die.

01:16:59--> 01:17:12

Like, you know, you've interpreted this kind of dream before. Why did you tell him that the chef made a mistake. The chef got it right. He said the chef said 30 days, but the month it's going to be short. It will only be 29.

01:17:15--> 01:17:23

Any from the dream he understood that this month it will only be 29 days, and the man died after 29 days.

01:17:26--> 01:17:39

He wanted to give him Bushra he didn't want to make him upset. So he said to him No, the chef made a mistake because the chef made a mistake in the number of days of the month not in the fact that he was going to die. He made a mistake in the number of days of the month only.

01:17:40--> 01:17:42

But you see the wisdom you see the hikma

01:17:43--> 01:18:10

but you don't say everything to everybody and not everybody who comes to you with a dream. And sometimes people come to me with rookie dreams. And I don't interpret dreams. I tell them I don't interpret dreams. They come to me with dreams that relate to Rokia and sometimes you can see the person is being attacked in their dream and something bad is happening to them. But you don't see them all somehow lava shaytaan has overcome you and your life is going to end up start you know this whole thing has happened. Satan inshallah Look,

01:18:11--> 01:18:27

there might be a problem. To read your Quran to Europa, you'll be fine inshallah, you have to choose what you want to say. And finally, a person should be humbled before Allah and grateful for the knowledge that they have been given.

01:18:28--> 01:18:33

And by Allah subhanho wa Taala the person should be a person who doesn't rush.

01:18:36--> 01:18:40

A person who inquires about the person who is asking

01:18:42--> 01:18:53

a person who isn't frightened not to interpret it's mentioned from even Siri that they would come to him with 100 dreams, and he would only interpret one of them.

01:18:54--> 01:18:59

And even Syrian one of the greatest interpreters of dreams in the history of Islam.

01:19:00--> 01:19:03

And they would come to him with dream after dream, he would only interpret one or two

01:19:05--> 01:19:08

because not everything and not everybody has to speak about every issue.

01:19:11--> 01:19:18

And likewise, he if he sees something where he should advise the dreamer, then he should take the opportunity to give this advice.

01:19:20--> 01:19:27

And he should give the interpretation he thinks is true, not cover something up and give a good interpretation for a bad dream.

01:19:29--> 01:19:37

He should guard the dream of secrets. One of the scholars said said who interprets dreams. He said, Be careful what you relate to me.

01:19:38--> 01:19:43

Because you relate to me something and I it's like a window into your life.

01:19:44--> 01:19:56

Me Be careful, you're narrating something. Don't be quick and you narrating something to me. It's like you're opening a window. So just like the topic of Rokia. Likewise, in dream interpretation, you have to conceal

01:19:57--> 01:19:58

what you hear from people

01:20:00--> 01:20:20

And likewise a person should not become proud of themselves and believe that they have all of the skills and all of their abilities and I can interpret any dream just like use of give me any dream, I will interpret it for you. Not a person should remember, one hour or two two minute Amy, a Luckily, you've only been given a very small amount of knowledge.

01:20:25--> 01:20:28

Some people i think it's it's important

01:20:29--> 01:20:30

to mention

01:20:31--> 01:21:02

that some people talk about seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream, just very briefly, and I've talked about this in some other lectures, but just very, very briefly, if you see the Prophet slice lm in a dream, then you have truly seen him as long as you see him in his description that he was known by. So a man comes to you and says to you, I saw the profit size element a dream, say okay, how did you see him say I didn't see him. He was behind the curtain, but I knew it was him.

01:21:03--> 01:21:32

This is not the Prophet size and the prophets lie Selim said, Man Ron, you feel Miami for Hydra Annie whoever sees me in a dream has truly seen me. Not the one who hears me not the one who thinks it's me. Number two, somebody says I saw the Prophet size element the dream okay. describe him to me. No problem. He was wearing a suit and tie. clean shaven, short hair. I knew it was the prophets I sell them. No.

01:21:33--> 01:21:52

Only the one whose description is the description of the prophets I send them it is described in the Sunnah. This is the only time you can accept that this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam And finally, whatever the prophet SAW Selim says do you in this dream does not make haram haram or halal haram

01:21:54--> 01:22:15

and this is how the shaitaan tests the person they see someone who they think is the Prophet sighs and that they don't know who the prophets lie Selim is, um, let me ask you for us hula, hula, hula hoop monkey Ron, they don't know the messenger. So they deny him. They see someone they think is the Prophet size elder and they support and this person says to them, you know what you should do?

01:22:16--> 01:22:28

You should go to this place and do this action, which is not from the Sunnah of the Prophet sly Selim does not tell the people to do evil. The Prophet sighs and does not tell the people to do harm.

01:22:29--> 01:22:54

But because they don't know their own profit, so they don't know whether they have seen him or when they haven't seen it. And it's mentioned about the famous dream interpreter interpreters from the tablet in and others that when a person would come to them and see I've seen the prophets I send them he would say Sif, Lima, right? describe to me what you have seen. Tell me the man you saw then I will tell you if it was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or not.

01:22:57--> 01:23:01

And this is the area of confusion that a lot of people a lot of people have.

01:23:06--> 01:23:11

I want to just give a couple of examples of dreams that were interpreted

01:23:12--> 01:23:20

by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or by the companions just so that we can just take an example of a

01:23:21--> 01:23:22


01:23:24--> 01:23:31

I'll just give go to an example inshallah. Because I think it's just useful that we can just put it you know, we can get we can put it together inshallah.

01:23:39--> 01:24:28

Okay, so we'll take the dream of Abu Bakr and Omar, pulling buckets of water. Even Omar reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I saw in a dream that I was standing over a well, pulling out water from it for people to drink. Then Abu Bakr and Omar Cade, Abu Bakr took the bucket from my hands to let me rest and pulled one or two bucket falls with difficulty May Allah forgive him, or more than took the bucket from Abu Bakr his hand, and in his hand it transformed into a very large bucket. I never saw among the people a man who could pull as well as him. He pulled so much water that the people brought their camels and camped around the pond, and

01:24:28--> 01:24:32

when they left the pond was still full and gushing.

01:24:33--> 01:24:59

Try to think this is how you do dream interpretation. Now you don't need anyone to interpret this because we know the interpretation of the of the dream so we don't need we don't need anyone to interpret it. But you try in your head to understand so the prophets I send them goes to a well and he's pulling out buckets of water then he becomes tired and Abu Bakr comes and takes the bucket from him. aboubaker only pull

01:25:00--> 01:25:16

One bucket or two buckets and it's very hard for him to do. Then Amato takes the bucket and the bucket becomes really big. And Omar very easily pulls bucket after bucket after bucket after bucket. And when Omar leaves the well the people all

01:25:17--> 01:25:21

around the world with their camels and their because it's become like a big pond.

01:25:23--> 01:25:25

So what is the interpretation of this dream?

01:25:26--> 01:25:40

The interpretation of this dream is the khilafah or the the the rulership over the Muslims. So the prophet SAW Selim came and he was pulling over the buckets. each bucket represents a year while

01:25:41--> 01:26:24

the each bucket represents a year of rulership over the Muslims, or a time of rulership over the Muslims. So Abu Bakr only ruled the Muslims for two years. And it was an extremely difficult time and a time where Abu Bakr was mostly concerned with fighting the multi Dean, the apostates and, you know, the issue of Muslim al Qaeda and all of these problems that were happening. So it was not a time when the Muslim army expanded greatly. Then Omar took over and was able to pull many, many buckets any his reign lasted for a very long time. And during that time, the Islamic empire became bigger and bigger and bigger, until when Obama left it, he left it in very, very good shape in a

01:26:24--> 01:26:31

state where the people, the resources were plentiful, and people were able to take a great deal from it.

01:26:36--> 01:26:52

There are many, many other dreams. But what I'm going to do now, because we kind of don't have any more time we've taken enough time out, is what I want to do now is I want to recommend you a source where you can learn much, much more. So the source that I'm going to recommend, and it was one of the sources I use to prepare the lecture today.

01:26:54--> 01:27:12

Because I'm presuming here that I won't give you the Arabic sources because it will be hard for you. But I'll give for you the English resource. There is a single book that is an amazing book in English language that will benefit you a massive amount and it's called the dreamers Handbook, by Mohammed Al Jabbar.

01:27:13--> 01:27:16

So Sheikh Mohammed Al Abadi, he wrote this book.

01:27:17--> 01:27:23

It's called the dreamers handbook. It's part of a series.

01:27:24--> 01:27:29

I think the series is the inevitable journey, and it's part of the series on the

01:27:31--> 01:27:38

on death and the hereafter, and so on. And it's called the dreamers Handbook, sleep etiquettes, and dream interpretation in the light of the sun.

01:27:40--> 01:28:14

And you can find everything that I said in this lecture pretty much. And even more in this book, including examples, a good dream Dictionary of what things mean when you see them in dreams, examples of how to extract the meanings of dream from ayat and ahaadeeth dreams of the Sahaba dreams of the Prophet sighs lm dreams of the prophets in the Quran, you can find a lot lot more, and it's a very good place to start. In addition to this, I would also recommend that you read the chapters of dream interpretation from Sahil Buhari and science.

01:28:16--> 01:28:29

And you can find those for example on So you finish with the dreamers handbook. And then you go and you read the chapters on dream interpretation. From Sahih al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.

01:28:30--> 01:29:06

And from there, you will find so much benefits in Sharla. Those of you who have some Arabic skills, you can dip into fact Halle Berry by a half of the bit hijab, and see how we'll have it have been hijacked, explains the dreams that were found in this in that he is underrated, underrated by the mumble Buhari. And likewise, you can you know, you can dip into explanations, and so on and so forth. It is an important science. There's a lot more we could have said. But I just wanted to kind of give you a taste of the importance of this knowledge. It's an important science. And it's something that everyone should take a little bit of time to understand, even if you don't ever

01:29:06--> 01:29:39

interpret a dream, but just even the etiquettes of knowing what to do when you see a good dream, what to do when you see a bad dream, what to do when you have a mixed up dream. And each even these are of benefit to everybody in Sharla so it's something that I would recommend you read the book from this book inshallah read some of the Hadees because the book mentions the Hadees. So you can take those ideas and read them in more detail in context in the in the books, of hobbies. And then from there, read some of the explanations develop yourself and sharpen your knowledge on the topic. And from then

01:29:40--> 01:29:59

develop the skills and the qualities of the person who interprets dreams. Because these skills and qualities are beneficial to everybody whether you interpret dreams or not knowing the Quran and the Sunnah, being able to compare things and analyze things. Being able to be wise about what you see and what you do.

01:30:00--> 01:30:39

Say having a careful people, these are qualities that everybody should have. And then from there, those who are allies or Joe gives the gift of dream interpretation to them that is a gift that Allah subhanaw taala bestows upon the people that he knows best, who will be grateful for it and who will use it to the best possible way. So hopefully this has just been any an introduction it's a nice topic to start the Friday night reflections with, we're not going to continue with it but perhaps we will be able to do a workshop on it in the future inshallah to Allah with more detail, but inshallah Allah we will just remind everybody, there will be no class next Friday.

01:30:41--> 01:30:46

But after next Friday, any from two weeks onwards there will be a class every week.

01:30:48--> 01:31:25

And one week will be Friday night reflections one week will be the Beautiful Names of Allah so the Beautiful Names of Allah will be moving from springs to here next to Cali man because it's just administrative wise and everything is just so much easier inshallah for us to be able to do it when we just next to Cali Mashallah. So hopefully this is clear for everybody. There's no class next week because of the holiday will resume in two weeks time. And every week we will have a different topic in Sharla please invite as many people as possible Mashallah msgid is big, you have room for lots of people. So try to invite your friends inshallah, it's good for new Muslims because it's a general

01:31:25--> 01:32:01

set of topics, it's good for people who are not practicing, because it's very light, it's not heavy, we're not like going through, you know, like a solar flare or something like that. We're just, you know, covering gentle, relaxing, interesting topics in Sharla. So it's good for non practicing Muslims as well. And of course, for those people who want to develop their knowledge. And also please keep an eye out for the essentials, because I'm I'm hearing that it's been approved in Sharla by the dialogue by Oh cough, and inshallah it's going to come soon, so keep an eye out for the essentials course, this will be on a Friday morning after federal and it will be serious and one

01:32:01--> 01:32:28

full year of serious study, books and so on and so forth. That we will complete in Sharla and there will not be any repetition of the books that were covered in the last two years. So inshallah it will be a brand new a brand new set of books and a brand new format inshallah. barakallahu li como de come along hyaluron Allahu Allah ma salatu salam, ala Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi h nine satanic a lot more behind the shadow. stockbroker today
