Can you please give me an authentic website for dream interpretations?


Can you please give me an authentic website for dream interpretation?




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

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

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم... وَكَانَ يَقُولُ ‏"‏ لاَ تُقَصُّ الرُّؤْيَا إِلاَّ عَلَى عَالِمٍ أَوْ نَاصِحٍ ‏"‏ ‏.(جامع الترمذي-2280)

Abu Hurarirah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: …  And he would say: "The dream is not to be narrated except to a knowledgeable person or a sincere advisor." (Tirmidhi-2280)

Interpreting dreams is an independent science and only people having skills on interpreting dreams should be referred to. The interpretation of dreams could differ according to people, time and place. This can only be ascertained by a person having experience in interpreting dreams. It would thus be advisable to refer to an Alim or pious person who understands the science of interpreting dreams, rather than referring to websites and books on interpretation of dreams.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best.
