The World of Dreams
Interpretation of Your Dreams
Mawlana Muhammad Asad Attari Madani
Dream: My maternal aunt had a dream in which she saw her father had passed away (he passed away 15 years ago). The grave shrinks and becomes narrow as he is lowered into it. He begins to kick around in the grave and calls my aunt, “Take me out of my grave; it is small.” My aunt begins to cry and then wakes up.
Interpretation: May Allah Almighty forgive his sins and make the trials of the grave easy for him. Seeing the deceased in a bad state is not a good sign. Pray for him, convey reward to him, and pay the compensation (fidya) for any prayers and fasts he missed.
Dream: A few years ago, I had a dream in which I was alone with Ameer of Ahl al-Sunnah دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ in a large ground. There was darkness everywhere until I saw a sudden flash of light.
Interpretation: This is a good dream. You will receive the blessings of Ameer of Ahl al Sunnah دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ . Continue to follow his teachings. You will acquire goodness, success, and virtue inshāAllah.
Dream: I was climbing the stairs in my home when I saw my future husband. My sister-in-law said to him, “So-and-so woman is performing magic on your sister. If you can stop her, do so, otherwise she will perform magic on us.” I then leave for the woman’s home, and on the way, I meet the woman’s brother. I ask him where he is going, and he replies that he is taking an amulet somewhere and proceeds to show me the amulet. I then reach the woman’s house.
Interpretation: We cannot accuse someone of performing magic on the basis of a dream. Sometimes, we are shown dreams by Satan that will cause discord between people. Ignore this dream and take the standard steps to resolve family disputes. Reciting litanies and wearing amulets for protection will be beneficial inshāAllah.
