Interpretation of Dreams
Mawlana Asad Attari Madani
Dream: I saw someone awakening my Shaykh, Mawlana Ilyas Qadri, for the Fajr prayer, who then got up immediately and started walking. I understood this to mean that when one awakens, he should walk a little to become alert.
Interpretation: Seeing the righteous people of Allah in your dream is a means of blessings, and it is a sign of love for them.
Dream: I have had several dreams in which someone is following me but cannot get close to me.
Interpretation: The interpretation of a vague dream cannot be given. However, if you feel fear, then recite Surah al-Falaq, Surah al-Nās and Āyat al-Kursi before sleeping.
Dream: How is it to see the birth of two children in someone else’s home?
Interpretation: It is favourable for whom you dreamed about.
Dream: I see snakes in my dream.
Interpretation: Seeing a snake is a sign of an evil person, and being bitten by the snake is a sign of an enemy harming you. If you have these dreams often, recite یَامُتَکَبِّرُ 21 times before sleeping, and get an amulet from Tawizat e Attaria for your protection. Also, giving charity in the way of Allah is beneficial for protection from enemies.
Dream: In my dream, I was in my older sister’s home and saw the police taking my brother away, but my deceased parents try to stop the police from doing so. Then a car runs over my mother’s feet, she bleeds and my father tends to the wounds, in an attempt to stop the bleeding.
Interpretation: May Allah protect you and your family. Sometimes, dreams of this nature occur due to anxiety or upsetting news. Do not worry and pray to Allah for wellbeing. Stay away from matters that could create disputes or violations against the law.
Dream: I dreamt I was in Madinah, reciting naat whilst looking at and approaching the green dome.
Interpretation: This is a beautiful dream, and اِنْ شَــآءَالـلّٰـه you will be there in reality. Try to find a means of travelling there, and repeatedly express your request in the court of the Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.
Dream: I saw my deceased grandfather offering the Friday prayer in the masjid, after which I greeted him.
Interpretation: This is a good dream. Seeing the deceased perform worship is an auspicious moment. Have faith in the mercy of Allah that he is well, but continue to pray for him and convey reward to him.
Dream: I saw a woman telling my mother that she will cure me. She also said my illness would leave me and harm someone else. I questioned why someone else would be afflicted, and I refused to receive treatment for my illness.
Interpretation: Remember, illnesses do not travel from one person to another. This dream is unclear. So, do not worry about getting ill on the basis of this dream, but if you currently have an illness, receive treatment for it. Sometimes, the devil causes Muslims to worry through dreams, but they have no bearing on reality. Therefore, do not be concerned and pay no attention to this dream, and recite the litany of یَا سَلَامُ as much as you can.
