My question is about dreams in which the dreamer gets the honor of the company of Holy Prophet.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

dear brother Burhan i must appreciate the work u r doing. i am confused about a matter and seek ur guidance. my question is about dreams in which the dreamer gets the honor of the company of Holy Prophet. i have a very close friend whose affairs of life are not hidden from me. i am actually asking this question with his permission. we know from Quran that during sleep our souls are in the hands of Allah Almighty and He will show the person what he please. and that time doesnot matter for Allah. he knows the end and everything. this particular friend of mine claims that he was visited by the Holy Prophet in his dreams twice when he was a kid. i know that he tells the truth regarding this as he doesnot give much importance to all this. He is a grave sinner. name a sin and he has done it. Except murder. my question is that, is seeing the Holy Prophet in dreams is such an ordinary thing that even sinners like my friend would get that honour. Although he was a kid when that happened yet Allah Almighty knew off course that what sort of person he was going to be.

Answer:

 

See pm in dream

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.123         Narrated by Anas

The Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for the Shaytaan cannot imitate my shape."

 

If one sees a dream whereby the person himself confirms that he is the Messenger of Allah (saws), then it is possible that Allah Subhanah has blessed and honored the person to witness the Prophet (saws) in their dream.  When one experiences a dream of such nature, one should recognize the tremendous honor their Lord has blessed upon them and be grateful to their Lord Most Merciful, and furthermore strive to do good righteous deeds that would justify the great honor their Lord has blessed them with.

 

Your Question: my question is that, is seeing the Holy Prophet in dreams is such an ordinary thing that even sinners like my friend would get that honour.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.144         Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "When the Day of Resurrection approaches, the dreams of a believer will hardly fail to come true, and a dream of a believer is one of forty-six parts of Prophetism, and whatever belongs to Prothetism can never be false."  Muhammad bin Sirin said, 'There are three types of dreams:

  1. The reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has during wakefulness,
  2. what is suggested by Satan to frighten the dreamer,
  3. or glad tidings from Allah.

So, if someone has a dream which he dislikes, he should not tell it to others, but get up and offer a prayer.' "

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, if one has been blessed and honored by their Lord to witness the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) in their dreams, then without an iota of a doubt, that dream is one of glad tidings from Allah Subhanah.

 

Beloved brother, it is possible that whom we might look upon as ordinary or sinning people might have done deeds which have great weight in the Scales of Allah Subhanah.  The brother/sister who witnesses a dream from Allah Subhanah whereby he is honored to see the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws)……. that person should recognize the tremendous honor their Lord has blessed them with, be extremely gratefully to their Lord for the honor He has bestowed upon them, and strive their utmost to do good righteous deeds that would justify the honor that their Lord Most Gracious has bestowed them with. 

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
