Question:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

I saw a dream.

In my dream, I was walking along with my family members and I accidentally entered a place which didn't have any door but had a curtain only, so I lifted its curtain and entered into a small room.

Then I saw a simple sitting area and suddenly an old man came forward to talk to me as if he lived there and he was with whitish beard till his chest, wearing a prayer cap, glasses ( I m unsure about it I think ), not an extreme white complexion and not a dark complexion, normal decent height and normal decent built.

He said to me that I am Muhammad. He also explained to me that It was not a time for him yet to meet his nation yet but he told me further that u have just met me before that time.

He was not at all angry but seemed like a very Normal and polite conversation. I was very surprised at all this happening and looking at him surprisingly that did I really had a Meet with our prophet Muhammad PBUH.

Then I woke up from my sleep. Did I really meet the holy prophet PBUH in my dream? Could there be any good interpretation of this dream because I always have prayed in this Ramadan to meet holy prophet PBUH in my dream? I Listened to his biographies also.

Shall wait for this dream interpretation for my guidance. Is there any specific guidance or message for me from this dream which relates to my religious or worldly affairs? Please guide me as per Quran and sunnah and hadeeth.

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

 

MashaAllah, you have seen a very blessed dream. It has been mentioned in a Hadith that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم has said, “ Whoever has seen me in a dream, then he has seen me, for verily Shaytan cannot resemble my appearance.” (Sahih Muslim {Bushra Print}, Hadith: 5914). According to Imam Nawawi رحمه الله, if someone saw the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم contrary to his recognized appearance; e.g. with a white beard, etc., then he has still seen him, regardless of whether he saw him in his known description or in a different description.

Should a person see the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم in an unrecognized appearance, then the dream shall be interpreted (Mirqatul Mafateeh, Vol. 8, Pg. 424-425, DKI Print). With all this said, it can be deduced that you did meet the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم in your dream. As for the interpretation of the dream: the statement, “ It was not time for him yet to meet his nation” means that the Day of Judgement has not arrived as of yet when he will meet his nation. However, you met him before this time; i.e. in your dream. This dream also indicates that you and your family are on the straight path; hence, continue following the Quran, Sunnah, and listening to the biography of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم. (this dream was interpreted by Mufti Tosir).
