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
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 true 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, "It used to be said, 'There are three types of
reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has during wakefulness,
is suggested by the Shaytaan to frighten the dreamer,
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 Sister in Islam, in light of the above
guidance, it is more than likely that the dream your husband experienced was no
more than a reflection of the thoughts of fear for the safety of the children
which any loving parent would hold.

Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
Beloved Sister, one should not fear the occurrences of
such dreams, nor should one change one’s lawful decisions only because they saw
an upsetting dream….but rather the believers should fear and keep their faith
and trust and hope in their Lord Most Majestic Alone, and know with total and
absolute conviction that absolutely nothing can or will happen unto them except
that which their Lord Most Supreme has Decreed for them….Allah Subhanah Alone
Suffices as a Protector, and in Him Alone should the believers put their
unconditional trust and faith.
Question: Should we or we should not shift in the new flat
Beloved Sister, in the Blessed Name of Allah move without
fear into your new accommodation, and keep your faith and trust in the Mercy,
Power and Strength of your Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful …..and know and
believe with total and absolute conviction that absolutely nothing can happen
to you or your family without the Precise Will and Permission of your Lord Most
If you ever fear any evil from any quarter whatsoever,
recite the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah
An-Naas as often as you can or is easy for you….it is expected that your Lord
Most High will protect you and your family from any and all harm, Insha Allah.
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.

well wisher in Islam,
