Prophet Muhammad Dream Explanation
— (Allah's Prophet Muhammad, blessings and peace be upon him; The Seal of the prophets; The last Messenger) It is related that Allah's Messenger, upon whom be peace, has said; " One who sees me in a dream will see me in his wakefulness, for Satan cannot impersonate me. " He also has said; " One who sees me in a dream, it is as if he has truly seen me, for Satan cannot impersonate me. " He also has said; " One who sees me in a dream will not enter the fire of hell. " Muslim theologians and scholars differ in opinion about the meaning of seeing Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream. Ibn Seerin used to ask someone who tells of such a dream to describe the Prophet, upon whom be peace. If any of the details did not fit his description, reply was; " You have not seen him. " Asim Bin Kulayb once said; " I related to Ibn Abbas, Allah bless his soul and that of his father, that I saw Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream. Ibn Abbas replied; " Describe him to me. " Asim Bin Kulayb added; " I described him as resembling Al-Hassan son of Ali, upon both of them be peace. " Ibn Abbas replied; " Indeed you have seen him. " Ibn Arabi once explained that the essence of seeing Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) is cognizance of his presence and understanding the reality of his character and example. Thus, recognizing the presence of the blessed being is as affirmation of the truth, while seeing the physical form represents his example and attributes, for being earthly does not change the essence of prophethood. When Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) said; " He will see me in wakefulness, " it means; expounding upon what he saw,' for what one sees in such a dream is the truth which resides in the realms of the unseen. In the second saying, when Allah's Prophet, upon whom be peace, said; " It is as if he has truly seen me, " it means that if one had seen him during the time of delivering Allah's massage, the example will be the same. Thus, the first saying signifies what is real and true while the second saying implies the physical reality and its example. If one sees Allah's Prophet, upon whom be peace, coming toward him in a dream, it means blessings and benefits, and if one sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) turning away from him in a dream, it means the opposite. Al-Qadi Iyad, Allah bless his soul, interpreted the words of Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in his saying; " Has truly seen me, " to mean; " has truly seen my physical form, " that the blessed companions knew, while seeing him in another form in a dream means that one's dream connotes personal interpretations. Following the explanation of Al-Qadi Iyad, Imam Al Nawawi commented by saying; " This is a weak explanation. A stronger interpretation is to say that one who sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream has seen him in reality however his resemblance may appear. Whether the resemblance in the dream is known or not. " In a separate commentary, Sheikh Al-Baqlani added; " What Al-Qadi Iyad has said does not contradict what Imam Al-Nawawi has said. " This is because the first dream does not require interpretation, according to Al-Qadi Iyad. In the second type of dream, that is discussed in Imam Al-Nawawi's comments, one's dream does require interpretation or analysis. This is to mean that since no Satan can impersonate Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp), then whatever appearance he displays in one's dream is true. The meaning of Allah's prophet's saying; " For Satan cannot impersonate me, " implies that since Allah's guardianship (Isma) is inviolable, and since Allah's Prophet, upon whom be peace, is sacrosanct, then as he was protected during the time of delivering Allah's message to humanity, he is still protected by the same guardianship after Allah Almighty took him back to Himself. Thus, whoever sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in any appearance in a dream, it is as if has seen him in reality, regardless whether one sees him as a young man, or at the time of delivering his message, or as an old person. If one sees him looking old in a dream, it means peace. If one sees him looking young in a dream, it means war. If one sees him smiling in a dream, it means that one is truly emulating his traditions. Seeing Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in his known and recognized appearance in a dream means that the one seeing the dream is a pious person, that his integrity is inviolable, and that his success is unquestionable. Seeing him (uwbp) in a dream frowning represents the ill state of the one seeing the dream. Ibn Abi Jumrah once said; " Seeing Him (uwbp) in a beautiful appearance denotes the good religious standing of the person seeing the dream. Seeing him with some disfeatures in a dream, a deficiency or distortion in one's application of his religious duties, for Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) is like a mirror that portrays the one standing before it. " In this sense, the person seeing the dream can recognize his own state. This interpretation is also given by Ibn Hajar Al-Hutaymi, Allah bless his soul. Like that, in the book of " Sharh al-Shamail " of Imam Al Tirmithi, it is also stated that Satan cannot impersonate Allah Almighty, His signs, prophets or angels. If someone suffering from distress sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream, it means that his difficulties will be removed. If a prisoner sees him in a dream, it means that he will be released form prison. If one is living at a time of economic chaos, and if high prices are exploiting the people of the land, or if injustice is tyrannizing everyone, then seeing Allah's Prophet, upon whom be peace, in a dream represents an end to such adversities. Seeing him in his beautiful, radiant and impeccable appearance as best described by his companions in a dream means glad tidings of attaining a successful conclusion to one's life in this world and in the hereafter. The state and clarity of one's heart and how well polished is his own mirror determines in what appearance he may see him, upon whom be peace. If Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) comes toward someone in a dream, or leads him in prayers, or if one sees himself accompanying him on the road, or if one eats something sweet from his blessed hand, or receives a cloak, or a suitable shirt, or if Allah's Prophet Muhammad promises him something, or prays for him, then if the one seeing the dream qualifies for leadership, and if he is a righteous and a just man who commands what is good and forbids what is evil, and if he is learned and practices what he knows, and if he is a pious worshipper and a devout Muslim, he will then attain the station and company of the blessed ones. If the one who sees the dream is a disobedient servant of Allah Almighty, it means that he will repent for his sins and return to his Lord. If he is living in heedlessness, it means that he will be guided. Perhaps, he might attain his goals in acquiring knowledge, or learn how to reconstruct his innermost being to befit a human being who is grateful to his Lord. If one is fearing oppression, persecution, or loss of his property and wealth sees him (uwbp) in a dream, it means putting an end to such fears, for he is the best of intercessors to restore anyone before Allah Almighty. If one who follows innovations sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream, it means that he should fear Allah Almighty, heed to His warnings and correct himself and particularly if he sees Him (uwbp) walking away from him, or turning his back to him. Seeing Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream also means receiving glad tidings and happy news, or it could signify justice, establishing the truth, fulfillment of a promise, reaching a high rank among the members of one's family, or perhaps it could mean that one may suffer from their envy and jealousy, or leave his homeland and migrate to another country, or it could mean that he may lose his parents and become an orphan. Seeing him (uwbp) in a dream also could mean seeing miraculous events (Karamat), for his companions witnessed and testified to a deer greeting him, a camel who kissed his foot, the broiled leg
of mutton talking to him, trees moving to give him cover, pebbles glorifying Allah's praises in his hand, among countless miracles, including his Nocturnal Journey and ascension (Miraj) to the heavens to meet his Lord. If an ophthalmologist sees him in a dream, it means that he will acquire great expertise in his field and become renowned in the land, for Allah's Prophet Muhammad upon whom be peace, did return the eye of his companion Qutadah to its place and made his sight sharper than it was by Allah's leave, after Qutadah had lost his eye during one of the battles with the unbelievers. If a traveller in the desert sees Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream, or if there is drought somewhere, it means that rain will fall and springs will gush forth, as water gushed from between his blessed fingers when he placed his blessed hand over a half filled cup to quench the thirst of an entire army. If calamities, starvation and drought has befallen a land and someone sees Him (uwbp) in a dream, it means that such calamities will be lifted and life will return to normal in that place. If a woman sees him in a dream, it means that she will reach a high spiritual station, honor, righteousness, chastity, trustworthiness and perhaps be given a blessed progeny, or if she is wealthy, it means that she will spend her wealth on Allah's path. Seeing him (uwbp) in a dream also means facing adversities, bearing patience and suffering from one's enemy. If an orphan sees him (uwbp) in a dream, it means that he will reach an exalted station and the same goes if a foreigner sees him in his dream. If a physician sees him (uwbp) in a dream, it means that people will benefit from his medicine.

If one sees him (uwbp) bare footed in a dream, it means that one has neglected to do his regular prayers. To see him (uwbp) and to shake hands with him in a dream means that one is truly his follower. If one sees his blood mixed with that of Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) in a dream, it means that one will marry a woman from among his descendents, or that one will marry the daughter of a great religious scholar. If Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) gives someone some type of greens or herbs in a dream, it means that one will escape from a great danger. If he (uwbp) gives him something fresh or honey in the dream, it means that one will learn the Holy Quran and acquire a great knowledge and wisdom according to the amount he receives in his dream. If one returns the gift to Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) it means that he will follow innovation. To see him (uwbp) delivering a sermon in a dream means that he is commanding people to do good and to eschew evil. If one sees the color of his skin (uwbp) tan in a dream, it means that one will think about repenting from his sins and abstain from young people's ignorance. If the color of his skin is white in the dream, it means that one will repent for his sins and turn to Allah Almighty for acceptance. If he (uwbp) reprimands someone in a dream, it means that one must refrain from innovation and follow the prophetic traditions. If one finds that Allah's Prophet Muhammad (uwbp) has died in a specific location in a dream, it means that the person seeing the dream will die in that same place and Allah knows best.

Dead Dream Explanation
— (Also see Mortuary, Shroud, and Resuscitate.) Whatever message a dead person conveys about himself or somebody else is true, because he has moved to the realm of reality and truth (death being the only reality), after leaving behind the world of illusions and falsehood. As a general rule, seeing a dead person in your dream doing something good means that you should do the same. If what he does is bad he is deterring you, asking you to desist from doing such a thing. Dreaming of a dead person that one knows means joy, but the best of dreams is that in which parents, grandparents, or others relatives are seen.
• Dreaming of one’s dead father, whatever the scenario, except if there is something disgraceful in his appearance: (1) Relief and benefits from an unexpected source. (2) The end of pain and disease. (3) The return of an absent one.

• Being dead without the usual rituals, such as washing, preparation of the body, the carrying of the bier or coffin, the tears and sobbing, et cetera: A portion of one’s house or a wall or some wooden structure in it will tumble or be destroyed. In other interpretations, religious faith and foresight will dwindle and life will stretch. If the rituals and above-mentioned manifestations were there, the case would be more acute.
• Dreaming of having died and been buried without anybody having cried over you or marched in your funeral procession and without having been washed: Some of the parts demolished in your house will never be erected again, unless the hero of the dream was not you.
• Dreaming of having died a very long time ago: Will embark on a distant journey in the company of corrupt and ignorant folk.
• A dead person informing the dreamer that he is alive and well or seeing him wearing a crown or rings or sitting on a couch: He is honoured by God in view of verses in the Holy Quran that read: “Think not of those who are slain in the way of Allah, as dead. Nay, they are living. With their Lord they have provision: jubilant (are they) because of that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who have not joined them but are left behind: that there shall not fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. They rejoice because of favour from Allah and kindness, and that Allah wasteth not the wage of the believers.” (“Al-Imran” [The Imran Family], verses 169–71.)
• A dead person looking well, wearing white or green clothes (green, according to Ibn Siren, being a symbol of martyrdom), and smiling in high spirits: He is so in the Hereafter.
• A dead person laughing: He is forgiven by Allah in view of verses in the Quran that read: “On that day faces will be bright as dawn, laughing, rejoicing at good news …” (“Abas” [He Frowned], verses 38–39.)
• A dead person laughing, then crying or his face turning black: he did not die as a Muslim in view of a verse in the Quran that reads: “On the day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieve ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved.” (“Al-Imran” [The Family of Imran], verse 106.)
• A dead person smiling without talking to the dreamer or touching him: The dead is satisfied with him for having done certain things for him after his death.
• A dead person singing: Bad omen.
• A dead person dancing out of joy: He is happy in the Hereafter.
• A dead person involved in any form of obscene entertainment: Bad omen.
• A dead person turning away from the dreamer or having a dispute with him as if he were beating him: The latter has committed a sin or must honour a debt or an obligation of some kind.

• A dead person dying again and people weeping and sobbing over him: An old mate or relative of the deceased will die. In the absence of crying, screaming, and sobbing, a relative of the dead person will marry pompously in great joy.
• Dreaming of having reached the pangs of death: Contradictory interpretations, the first being that you are unfair to yourself, in view of the verse of the Holy Quran that reads: “Who is guilty of more wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allah, or saith: I am inspired, when he is not inspired in aught; and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which
• Allah hath revealed? If thou couldst see, when the wrongdoers reach the pangs of death and the angels stretch their hands out, saying: Deliver up your souls. This day ye are awarded doom of degradation for that ye spake concerning Allah other than the truth, and scorned His portents.” (“Al-Anam” [The Cattle], verse 93.)
