Title: Dream Interpretation


I had this dream before Fajr.
I don't remember very clearly but I will try and explain in detail to the best of my ability. I was living in house with my family. This house was not very near other houses. There were lots of trees around my house and my house was very dark. I constantly felt scared and insecure. I felt like was being troubled by jinn or something evil. There was one door in the house that was never opened and always stayed locked. I opened that door and there was a very dark room all I could see was a frame with a picture of a pious man dressed religiously. I came out of that room. I was walking in a field and it was sunny.  I saw a woman who looked just like the pious man in the frame and said something to the effect of "it's you!" She smiled sweetly and suddenly I went into a kind of trance everything was white around me and I saw a paper or a script, it isn't clear to me. remember reading,"Nabee(SAW) has sent my husband to protect. I am her to guard/guide you." Something to the effect of that. After that I stayed around her all the time because I felt safe and protected when I was with her. It felt as if the jinn or whatever evil that used to trouble me could not get to me when I was with her and as soon as I left her they would trouble me again. Outside the house I lived in, it was dirty. There was rubble and dead trees and leaves. She cleared the area and ploughed the area. This piece of my dream was not clear but I remember arguing with my mother saying "ummi put the house on this side there's sun here.  The house won't be  dark." But she insisted of putting the house under the trees in the shade.
I awakened from this dream very scared and in tears. I have a constant insecure feeling. It is such that I feel something is going happen to me or have an impact on me.



My 13 year old daughter had this dream

Kindly give an interpretation 

Baarakallah feekum



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Explain to your daughter that the example of a dream is like a man travelling on a highway. The traveller will come across many different types of sceneries, some lush and beautiful, whilst other may be not so eye-catching and appealing. Nonetheless, the traveller must not lose his concentration throughout his travel and he should not stop to pay a lot of attention to what is around him.

Thus, our focus should not stray towards the transitory world of dreams. We should focus on real life issues. Recounting every dream and pondering on its meanings is futile. Dreams alone cannot change a person’s life.

Advise her to think of Allah. Every good and bad decree is from Allah. She should recite Ayatul Kursi and the Four Quls and she will be protected by Allah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

سنن أبي داود، 689 (مكتبة رشيدية)

 حدَّثنا قُتيبةُ بنُ سعيدِ ويزيدُ بنُ خالدِ بنُ عبد الله بن مَوهَب الهَمْدَانيُّ، قالا: حدَّثنا المفضلُ -يعنيان ابنَ فَضالةَ- عن عُقيل، عن ابنِ شهاب، عن عُروة

عن عائشة: أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- كانَ إذا أوى إلى فِراشه كُلَّ ليلةٍ جمع كفَّيهِ، ثئم نَفَثَ فيهما، وقرأ فيهما،: {قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ}، و {قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ}، و {قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ}، ثم يمسحُ بهما ما استطاعَ 

سنن أبي داود، 206 (مكتبة رشيدية)

حدَّثنا عبد الله بن محمد النُّفيليُّ، حدَّثنا محمدُ بن سلمة، عن محمد بن إسحاق، عن سعيد بن أبي سعيد المقبري، عن أبيه

عن عُقبةَ بن عامر قال: بينا أنا أسيرُ معَ رسول الله - صلَّى الله عليه وسلم - بين الجُحفَة والأبواء، إذ غَشِيَتْنا رِيح وظُلمة شديدة، فجعل رسولُ الله - صلَّى الله عليه وسلم - يتعوذ بـ {قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ} و {قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاسِ} ويقول: "يا عُقبةُ، تعوذ بهما، فما تَعَوذَ متعوذ بمثلهما" قال: وسمعتُه يؤمُّنا بهما في الصلاة 

   صحيح البخاري (8/638) [دار البشائر الإسلامية]

حدثني حبان، أخبرنا عبد الله، أخبرنا يونس، عن ابن شهاب، قال: أخبرني عروة، أن عائشة، رضي الله عنها، أخبرته: «أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا اشتكى نفث على نفسه بالمعوذات، ومسح عنه بيده، فلما اشتكى وجعه الذي توفي فيه، طفقت أنفث على نفسه بالمعوذات التي كان ينفث، وأمسح بيد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عنه» 

سنن الترمذي ت بشار (5/ 149) [الرسالة العالمية]

حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ الْمُغِيرَةِ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ الْمَخْزُومِيُّ الْمَدِينِيُّ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي فُدَيْكٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ الْمُلَيْكِيِّ، عَنْ زُرَارَةَ بْنِ مُصْعَبٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ قَرَأَ حم الْمُؤْمِنَ إِلَى {إِلَيْهِ الْمَصِيرُ} وَآيَةَ الكُرْسِيِّ حِينَ يُصْبِحُ حُفِظَ بِهِمَا حَتَّى يُمْسِيَ، وَمَنْ قَرَأَهُمَا حِينَ يُمْسِي حُفِظَ بِهِمَا حَتَّى يُصْبِحَ
