Books on dreams
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 9.144 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, "But I say this." He said, "It used to be said, 'There are three types of dreams:
- The reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has during wakefulness,
- what is suggested by Satan to frighten the dreamer,
- 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.'"
Your Question: the books which contians the tabeer of dreams are
correct or not
we believe on their written tabeer or not ?
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge the absolute vast majority of the books available on the taabeer of dreams are based on experiences rather than from sound evidence of the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah.
Unless and until the tabeer of the dream related in these books is accompanied with sound evidence from the established and authentic Sunnah or sayings of the Messenger of Allah (saws), it would be best to abstain from believing in such taabeers or interpretations, for more often than not the interpretations related in these books are the experiences of the author rather than guidance from the Quran and the Sunnah.
The best action when one experiences any dream is to first determine whether the dream was a reflection of ones thought or experience, or was it an evil dream or a frightening nightmare, or whether it was a good dream which gave glad tidings from Allah Subhanah.
If the dream was a reflection of ones thought, one should simply ignore it.
If the essence of the dream was evil or frightening, one should not tell it to others, but rather get up and offer a prayer and seek refuge in Allah from the evil and accursed Shaytaan.
If the essence of the dream was good like a glad tiding from Allah Subhanah, one should be grateful to their Lord Most High for the honor, and re-double his efforts in doing good deeds to justify the honor and mercy and grace that his Lord Most Gracious has bestowed upon him.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs 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,
