I know that seeing prophet Mohammed in one`s dream is true thing..
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:
I know that seeing prophet Mohammed in one`s dream is true thing.. But how about other prophets and messangers.. For example if one saw Jesus or Moses in his/her dream..
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
See jesus or moses 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 none 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 9.122 Narrated by Abu Huraira
I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "Whoever sees me in a dream will see me in his wakefulness, for the Shaytaan cannot imitate me in shape."
Beloved brother, one must realize that first and foremost, the above guidance that those who saw Prophet Mohamed (saws) in their dreams actually saw the Prophet (saws) and none else, is only for those who have been blessed and fortunate enough to have seen the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws) themselves in his lifetime; for only then they would be able to recognize the Prophet (saws) in their dreams.
One who has not seen the Prophet (saws), would obviously not be able to recognize him (saws)! In light of the above authentic hadith, it is not possible for the Shaytaan to imitate the shape, features, or face of the Prophet Mohamed (saws), but it is possible for the Shaytaan to take the shape of another human being and falsely claim to be the Prophet, especially to those who have not seen, and thus obviously do not recognize Prophet Mohamed (saws).
Thus even if one sees a person who claims to be Prophet Mohamed (saws), or Prophet Musa (a.s.), or Prophet Isa (a.s.) in their dreams, one who has never seen the faces of these Prophets, cannot be absolutely assured that they indeed saw the real Prophets in their dreams.for although it is not possible for the Shaytaan to imitate and copy the exact features of the Prophet, it is possible that he takes the shape of another human being and falsely claim to be one of the Prophets!
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 the Shaytaan 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.'"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.168 Narrated by Abu Salama
I used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard Abu Qatada saying, "I too, used to see a dream which would make me sick till I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "A good dream is from Allah, so if anyone of you saw a dream which he liked, he should not tell it to anybody except to the one whom he loves, and if he saw a dream which he disliked, then he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil and from the evil of Shaytaan, and spit three times (on his left) and should not tell it to anybody, for it will not harm him."
Thus regardless of whom or what one sees in their dreams, one should realize that Allah Subhanah has completed and perfected His deen with the completion of the Holy Quran and the established Sunnah of His Last and Final Messenger (saws), and thus nothing, absolutely nothing can be added or subtracted from the deen.
If one sees a good dream which gives good tidings, then one should rest assured it is from their Lordand they should be grateful for His favors upon them; and if one sees an evil dream which one dislikes, one should not worry about it nor disclose it to anyone, but rather seek refuge in Allah from the mischief of the accursed Shaytaan, and get up an offer a prayer, for that dream will not harm him in the least.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
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.
