aafiyah ... al utbah ...


The Supplication of Prophet SAAWS after the way he was treated by the people of Taaif

O Allah , to you I complain of the frailty of my strength ,the deficiency of my stratagem and my humiliation at the people
O Most Merciful of those who show mercy .
You are the Lord of the feeble and oppressed and You are my Lord .
O Allah to whom will you entrust me ?
To a distant one who will receive me in an odious way or to an enemy , whom You will put me in possession of ?

If you are not angry at me , then I am indifferent save that Your aafiyah is more expansive for me
I take refuge in the Light of Your face , which has radiated over the darkness and put the affairs of this world and the Hereafter in order , from Your discontentment descending upon me or that Your anger set down upon me.

To You is my al-utbah until You are pleased and there is no might nor power except by You

related by Ibn Ishaaq in as - Seerah

" aafiyah " possible meaning ... your protection of me from the people

" al-utbah " possible meaning ....I plead to You and constantly apologies for my wrong doings until You become pleased

People of Jannah


Surah ‘Ali ‘Imran; 133-136 (133) وَسَارِعُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the muttaqin (righteous,pious). (134) الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ فِي السَّرَّاءِ وَالضَّرَّاءِ وَالْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ وَالْعَافِينَ عَنِ النَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ Those who spend [in Allâh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn[] (the good doers). Spending when it is easy and when it is difficult. People tend to show gratitude when things are good. We tend to have an attitude to give thanks when we are feeling good. But when things are bad, we feel like we're never going to get it (what we give) back. Whoever has taqwa Allah will make for him a way out. Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam promises us that our money will never experience loss when we give sadaqah. Everything we give will be returned to us eventually, and it will be returned and multiplied! All because of our taqwa to Allah. Giving for the sake of Allah subhana wa ta’ala is an opportunity to become more conscious of Allah’s presence. Thus, this strengthens our iman. Allah subhanah speaks to us in terms of trading for we can understand. Verily what we spend is not ours, even He owns our souls. Yet Allah says, “If you loan Allah a goodly loan, He will multiply it for you and forgive you. And Allah is Most Appreciative and Forbearing.” (Surah at-Taghabun; 17) Indeed Allah knows that humans are greedy. Note that in this ayah (‘Ali ‘Imran; 134) Allah does not mention what these people spend. Allah does not specify further thus it is not limited to wealth only. So what you spend here can also include your time, your energy. It includes your priority for you give, sacrifice, for you invest those you love for the sake of Allah to acquire this attribute of taqwa, and to attain His mercy — Jannah. The next characteristic: swallowing anger. And who restrain anger الْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ is to swallow anger. The important thing to understand is swallowing. For example when someone's eating an apple, you can see that the person is chewing it. But when someone swallows it, can you see if something's there? It's gone. But for us, sometimes when we try to restrain our anger, it still shows on our faces, we have a certain look that people can tell from or a certain behaviour when we're in anger. There's an expression of anger. The meaning from these ayah is those people completely restrain their anger as though nothing happens; as though nothing is wrong. They do not chew it, but swallow it completely. They do not express their anger and so there is no chance for the people around them to ask, ‘What’s going on?’ It doesn't even come to that point because they can't even see it in their faces. And they do this continuously, consistently. And the He says, who pardon the people - those who lovingly forgive the people over and over. You can forgive people and still be mean to them, by mentioning that they have wronged you. What do you achieve by saying that? You are silently insulting him/her. This is a show of arrogance. When you truly forgive someone it is in private. When you make du'a for yourself you make du'a for him too. In the seerah, sometimes Rasulullah sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam was upset with the sahabah. Until the ayah came down- It is from the mercy of Allah that you are lenient towards them. If you were hard hearted and harsh and stern, they would have run away from you. The sahabah would have run away from Rasulullah. The sahabah who's iman is much greater than us! So when you truly forgive someone, do it completely,lovingly and privately and even they make du'a to ask Allah to forgive the people, and never recall to insult. They forgive not for those who don’t deserve, but solely for the sake of Allah. When someone has wronged you, assume that you have two choices: to continue showing your anger because that person deserves it, or, to forgive that person for the sake of Allah for you can attain His forgiveness? and Allah loves the doers of good; And truly Allah subhanah, our Lord, our Creator, loves those who excel in their deen. The 3 characteristics: -those who spend during ease and hardship, -those who swallows their anger, -and those who forgive (out of love). And Allah loves the muhsinin, those who excel in their deen. May Allah make us from them, ameen.. Muslims have to be more forgiving and loving... we can never judge a persona and know where is a person's position with Allah. Maybe that person whom we are harsh to are much closer to Allah than ourselves... Some people even choose the masajid to pray at just because of differences in ideologies. There is a lack of priority which prevents us from thinking clearly. The next ayah, after Allah says run to forgiveness and jannah: (135) وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُوا فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا لِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَمَن يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا اللَّهُوَلَمْ يُصِرُّوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلُوا وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ And those who, when they have committed Fahishah (illegal sexual intercourse etc.) or wronged themselves with evil, remember Allâh and ask forgiveness for their sins; - and none can forgive sins but Allâh - And do not persist in what (wrong) they have done, while they know. And those who, when they commit an immorality فَاحِشَةً means shamelessness, it can be by seeing, words, or eyes, or deeds, anything shameless to fulfill our lust. It is when you do something because you are overwhelmed by lust. And then the next kalimah 'Auzalamu anfusakum' means- or they've wronged themselves. something you do that does not bring any worldly benefit but you do it anyway, i.e jealousy, ghibah, etc. or wrong themselves [by transgression], zakarullah- Remember Allah(immediately) and seek forgiveness for their sins - Allah does not say ‘THEN remember Allah’. Sometimes when we have wronged someone, we tend to avoid them. Because we feel shamed to have acted in a bad way to them. Syaitan uses this against us. In this condition, we are not doing wrong to our parents or teacher we can avoid, but we have disappointed Allah! While Allah is Most Forgiving. Another example is when a mother spanks a child. He cries, but who does he run to? His mother, who spanked him in the first place. Why? Because all the other people are strangers, and only she can protect him, even if she's mad at him. He still goes to her. Ponder that for a while. Why do we have to run away from Allah? Everyone who has sinned, there is still hope :) So those people mentioned in this ayah — as soon as they did wrongdoing, they remember and mention Allah simultaneously, immediately. And who can forgive sins except Allah? and [who] do not persist in what they have done while they know. إِلَّا اللَّهُوَلَمْ يُصِرُّوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلُوا وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ When these people sincerely make tawba, they do not insist upon what they had done. Although one day they would do the sin again, it would be unintentional deed and they would immediatelyremember Allah and seek forgiveness. When we have sinned, and we ask forgiveness from Allah, we would feel shame. We have done something hideous and we mention his name, we would feel shame if our tawba is genuine. When you say sorry to someone, you look sorry, you feel sorry. Even more so when we ask Allah for His forgiveness... May Allah gift us with understanding of this deen. (136) أُولَٰئِكَ جَزَاؤُهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَجَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ وَنِعْمَ أَجْرُ الْعَامِلِينَ Those - their reward is forgiveness from their Lord and gardens beneath which rivers flow [in Paradise], wherein they will abide eternally; and excellent is the reward of the [righteous] workers. Notice that these characteristics of the people of Jannah are ‘sandwiched’ by the mention of Jannah. SubhanAllah! May Allah make us among these people. Ameen ya Rabbal ‘alameen.

Our Failure to Help and Free the Muslim Aseer (Prisoners)



No Arab is superior to a non Arab


Long history with Islam gives Indigenous Australians pride

No Arab is superior to an non Arab and no non Arab is superior to an Arab.
No dark-skinned person is superior to a white and no white person is superior to a dark-skinned person
The criteria for honour in the estimation of Allah Almighty is the individual's righteousness and honest living .
Alhumdu lillahi Rabil Alaimeen who guides us to His paths

Let us abolish the stinky smell of Assibayah [racism ] that is prevalent in our ummah and live up to Allah's magnificent Deen and RasulAllah's SAAWS noble words Ameen

Killers of Children


Mainstream Media Lying: Australia ABC Ignores 6 Million US-Complicit Muslim Infant

The taxpayer-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation (the ABC) is Australia 's equivalent of the UK BBC. Like the UK BBC, the ABC has an appalling record of remorseless lying by omission and lying by commission. The extent of this travesty by the ABC can be readily assessed by using the ABC Search Engine that enables one to “search the entire ABC site” for patent falsehoods that the ABC promulgates and for horrendous truths that it refuses to report. The most appalling Awful Truth that the ABC refuses to report is horrendous global infant mortality and in particular infant mortality in countries subject to invasion and occupation by the US Alliance.

Your children Our children



Israel: Profile of a Rogue State
Rogue states spurn international law, treaties, conventions, and in Israel's case its own laws and Supreme Court decisions.

Over a million Palestinian children "live and suffer every moment of their lives under the painful reality of occupation."

Growing numbers are killed, injured, maimed, handicapped, arrested, imprisoned, and tortured. Most are impoverished and many hungry.

"What about those who have lost their parents, friends, brothers and sisters due to" continuous Israeli oppression?

"What about the children who live in fear and who suffer distress or cannot sleep, who feel unprotected in the face of a ruthless and arrogant Israeli occupation?"

They're Palestine's children, out of sight and mind to most people everywhere. Who outside Palestine understands their suffering?

Who can imagine the indifference of world leaders, supporting a ruthless, racist occupier, disdainful of human and civil rights?

Who understands enduring daily assaults, police state justice, and fear of being bombed, shot, or otherwise harmed? How do you comfort young children to hold up in the face of what adults can't tolerate?

Al Madinah al Munawwarrah


The Dream of Shaykh Osama bin Laden (may Allah have mercy on him) Translated by Ansarullah blog’s English Team
This incident was narrated to me by a student of knowledge who spent more than 20 years in the company of scholars acquiring knowledge. He told me about a dream that Shaykh Osama bin Laden had when he was 9 years old, which indicated that Allah swt was preparing Shaykh Osama bin Laden, may Allah have mercy on him, since childhood, for battles against the Crusaders. He told me that once he was sitting with a companion and discussing the deplorable condition of the Ummah but that all the incidents taking place in the Muslim Ummah are going according to Allah’s plan and that it is certain that the victory of Allah the Almighty will come. He will surely send a Leader and a Guide from amongst our Ummah who will deliver the humiliated and pitiful Ummah to the enlightened path of ascent and loftiness. We started thinking that who could be such a person! Immediately, the thought of Shaykh Osama bin Laden came to our minds, since he has made innumerable sacrifices for the sake of the Ummah. On this, my companion smiled and said, “I will narrate to you a dream of Shaykh Osama bin Laden; you will be pleased to hear it, and your love for the mujahideen will only increase.” He said, “I was in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah at the house of a Scholar who used to lecture at the Prophet’s masjid. We had just arrived at his house when someone knocked on the door. The Shaykh returned with a person of luminous and honorable appearance who was about 80 years old. “The host welcomed him and requested the Tafsir of a few verses from the Qur’an. We quietly listened to him while the guest Shaykh recited a few verses, and then he gave the Tafsir of those verses. By Allah, I had studied a number of Tafsirs, but that Shaykh was a sea of knowledge. When he completed his lesson, the host invited him for a meal, but he declined politely, and we came to understand that he was fasting. “Eventually, the guest asked for permission to leave, but the host insisted, 'Until you narrate to us the dream of Shaykh Osama bin Laden once more, you will not get the permission to leave.' “The Shaykh smiled and asked, 'The dream that Shaykh Osama bin Laden had when he was 9 years old?' The host replied in the affirmative. “This is how that Shaykh narrated the incident: “'I was a close friend of Muhammed bin Laden, the father of Osama bin Laden. Many times I would be in his company. And many times, I used to visit his house regarding work related to construction. During the discussions, our talk would be disturbed by the playing of his children, and then he would ask them to go out and play. “'But I was surprised to see that he would always ask one particular son to sit beside him. I asked him, “Why don’t you let this son of yours to play with his other brothers? Is he sick?” “'Mohammed bin Laden smiled and said, “No, there something special about this son of mine.”' “'When I asked his name, he said, “His name is Osama, and he is 9 years old. Let me share with you something strange which happened a few days ago. My son woke me up few minutes before the morning prayer and told me, 'Dear father, I want to tell you about a dream that I had.' I thought he must have had a nightmare. I made ablution and took him along with me to Masjid. “'“On the way, he told me, 'In the dream, I saw myself in a huge, flat area. I saw an army mounted on white horses moving towards me. All of them were wearing black turbans. One of the horsemen, who had shiny eyes, came up to me and asked me, “Are you Osama bin Muhammed bin Laden?” I replied, “Yes.” He then asked me again, “Are you Osama bin Muhammed bin Laden?” I again replied, “Yes, that is me.” He again asked, “Are you Osama bin Muhammed bin Laden?” Then I said, “By Allah, I am Osama bin Laden.” He moved a flag towards me and said, “Hand this flag over to Imam Mahdi Muhammad bin Abdullah at the gates of Al-Quds.” I took the flag from him, and I saw that the army started marching behind me.' “'Muhammed bin Laden said, “I was surprised at that but, due to business at work, I forgot about the dream. The next morning, he woke me up just before the morning prayer and narrated the same dream. The same thing happened on the third morning also. Now, I began to worry for my son. I decided to take him with me to a knowledgeable person who can interpret dreams. “'“Accordingly, I took Osama to a person of knowledge and informed him about the whole incident. He looked at us with surprise and asked, 'Is this your same son who had the dream?' I said, 'Yes.” He kept staring at Osama for some time. My concern multiplied. He comforted me and said, 'I will ask you a few questions. I am sure that you will answer them truthfully.' “'“He asked Osama, 'Son, do you remember anything about that flag which that horseman gave you?' Osama replied, 'Yes, I remember it.' “'“He asked him, 'Can you describe it, how it was?' “'“Osama said, 'It was similar to the flag of Saudi Arabia, but its color was not green but black, and there was something written on it in white color.' “'“He then put the next question to Osama, 'Did you ever see yourself also fighting?' Osama replied, 'I commonly see such dreams.' He then asked Osama to go out of the room and do recitation of the Qur’an. “'“Then that person of knowledge turned towards me and asked, 'Where is your ancestry from?' “'“I replied from Hadramawt in Yemen. Then, he asked me to tell him something about my tribe. I replied that we are related to the tribe of Shanwah which is a Qahtani tribe from Yemen. He then cried out the Takbir loudly and called in Osama and kissed him while crying. He also said that the signs of the hour are near. “'“'O Muhammed bin Laden, this son of yours will prepare an army for Imam Mahdi and for the sake of protecting his religion, he will migrate to the region of Khurasan. O Osama ! Blessed is he who will do Jihad by your side and undone and disappointed be he who leaves you alone and fights against you.'”'” wasalaamualaikum

Seventeen Rules of Dream Interpretations:


Dreams and Dream Interpretations
by Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki


Seventeen Rules of Dream Interpretations:

Ibn Qutaybah ad-Dinawari
رحمه الله says in his book about dream interpretations, “There is nothing in which people deal with from the different sciences that is more obscure, delicate, exalted, noble, difficult and problematic than dreams because they are a type of revelation and type of Prophethood.”

Narrated Anas bin Malik
رضي الله عنه Allah's Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم said, "A good dream (that comes true) of a righteous man is one of forty-six parts of prophet hood." [Sahih al-Bukhari]

Some scholars tried to give explanation to this ratio of 1:46. We have no way to find out that if their explanation is correct or not. Prophet hood of Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم extended from 40 to 63 years meaning for 23 years. We know from Seerah that six months before becoming a Prophet, Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم was seeing dreams that would come out to be true on a very frequent basis so much so that he would see a dream one night and it would come to be true the next morning. So the ratio of 6 months to 23 years is 1:46.



1) There are 3 types of dreams: Imam at-Tirmidhi رحمه الله narrates from Muhammad Ibn Sirin رحمه الله who narrates from Abu Hurairah رضي الله تعالى عنه that Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “There are three types of dreams: 1. True Dreams 2. A dream in which a person is speaking to himself (i.e. whatever you were thinking about in the day time, you see at night) 3. A dream from shaytaan in which he wants to make you sad ”

In one hadith it is mentioned that one should stand up and pray and in another is that he should not mention it to anyone.

Abu Salamah
رضي الله عنه once said, “Sometimes I would see a dream that would be heavier on me than carrying a mountain. But since I heard this hadith I wouldn’t care about the bad dream I would see.”
Narrated Abu Sa‘id Al-Khudri
رضي الله عنه: The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, "If anyone of you sees a dream that he likes, then it is from Allah, and he should thank Allah for it and narrate it to others; but if he sees something else, i.e., a dream that he dislikes, then it is from Satan, and he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil, and he should not mention it to anybody, for it will not harm him." [Sahih Muslim]

Q1) A question arises, is every dream that a believer sees good?
Al Muhallab
رحمه الله says, “Most of the dreams of the righteous people are good dreams because sometimes a righteous person could see a dream that is meaningless but that is not very frequent because shaytaan’s control on them is very weak. And the opposite is true with other people because shaytaan has a stronger grasp over them. People are of the categories:
i) The Prophets: all of their dreams are truthful and but sometimes they need interpretation. The good dream is divided into 2 categories:
a) Direct dream: something one would see in a dream and the exact scene repeats itself in day-time when you are awake and this dream does not need interpretation.
b) A dream that comes in symbols and it needs to be interpreted.

ii) The righteous: most of the time their dreams are truthful (most of them need to be interpreted) and sometimes their dream are direct.

iii) Rest of the people: most of their dreams are not true but some of them could be true.” [Fath al-Bari bi Sharh Sahih al-Bukhari]

2) Do not mention the dream for interpretation except to a scholar or a person who would advise you sincerely.

Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “You should not mention this dream to an envious person…”

There is also evidence for this in the Qur`an: (Remember) when Yûsuf (Joseph) said to his father: "O my father! Verily, I saw (in a dream) eleven stars and the sun and the moon, I saw them prostrating themselves to me." He (the father) said: "O my son! Relate not your vision to your brothers, lest they arrange a plot against you. Verily! Shaitân (Satan) is to man an open enemy! {Surat al-Yusuf, ayat 4-5}

3) Seeing Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم:

Narrated Anas
رضي الله عنه the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, "Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for Satan cannot imitate my shape. [Sahih al-Bukhari]

Q2) There is an issue here, what if a person sees Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم and he feels that it is him but his description in the dream if different than the one we know of from ahadith. So is the person in the dream Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم?
Az-Zuhri
رحمه الله says that Ibn Sirin رحمه الله said, “If you see him according to his description.” An-Nawawi رحمه الله, however, has a contrary view and he says, “As long as you felt in your dream that the person you saw was Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم then it is him even if he comes in a different form.” Ibn Taymiyyah رضي الله عنه supports the view of Ibn Sirin رحمه الله

4) A repetition of a dream is a sign of its truth. It does not matter if the same person sees the dream more than once or more than one person.

‘AbduLlah ibn ‘Umar
رضي الله عنهما reported that some people were shown the Night of Qadr as being in the last seven days (of the month of Ramadan). The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, "I see that your dreams strengthen each other that Night of Qadr is in the last seven nights of Ramadhan so whoever searches for it, would search for it in the last seven days (of Ramadan)." [Sahih al-Bukhari]

Also the dream about Adhan when 2 Sahabah
ضي الله عنهما saw the same dream.

5) Q3) When is the most expected time to see a righteous dream? At night or day time? Are all the times equal (whether seen at the beginning of the night or end of the day)?
Ibn Sirin
رحمه الله said, “Dreams of day time are equal to the dreams of night.” [Sahih Muslim]

6) Ibn Battal
رحمه الله said, “Dreams are of two types: a clear evident dream like somebody would dream about himself giving dates to someone and during the day time he would give somebody dates. This type of dream doesn’t need any interpretation. Secondly, a dream that comes in symbols and this type you would understand its meaning unless you get it interpreted by a person who has knowledge and experience dream interpretation because sometimes the symbols are very delicate and sophisticated.”

Like the dream Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم saw in which he was drinking milk from a vessel and when some of it was remaining, he gave it ‘Umar رضي الله عنه. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم interpreted it as knowledge. This means that Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم absorbed the knowledge and he mentions that the milk was so much that it started flowing beneath his nails. So he had so much knowledge in him, that it started flowing from him.

7) Dreams can be about the past or the present or the future.

8) True dreams increase towards the end of times.

Ibn Sirin
رحمه الله said,” I heard Abu Hurairah saying, ‘Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “When Time approaches, the dream of the believer rarely would lie.’” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

“When Time approaches…”is explained in two different opinions:

i)Al-Khattabi
رحمه الله said, “The meaning of ‘When Time approaches…” is the time of night and the time of day. When the time of night approaches the length the time of day, then the dreams of the believer will be true. These are the two times when flowers open up and when fruits are ripe. The scholars of dream interpretation actually state that these are the two time when the dreams are most likely to be true.”

ii)Al-Qurtubi
رحمه الله says, “What is meant by this hadith, and Allah سبحانه و تعالى knows best, is the end of times and it is talking about the group of believers that will be with ‘Isa ibn Maryam عليه سلام after he kills dajjal.”

Ibn Abi Jamrah
رحمه الله says,” The reason why the believer sees true dreams at the time is because the believer will be ghareeb (stranger) as was mentioned in the hadith, ‘Islam began as something strange and it will return to the way it began being strange so give glad tidings to the strangers so give glad tidings to the strangers.’”

Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani
رحمه الله comments on all the opinions by saying, “Whenever the times are difficult for the believer, he will see dreams that are true frequently because he needs help. When the believer is alone, when the times are difficult, when you don’t find people supporting on truth, then Allah سبحانه و تعالى will inspire you to give you glad tidings through the good dreams you would see and this is to give the believers in those difficult and testing times gives the believers strength, it gives them confidence, it gives them hope so they would see a lot of dreams that would come true.”
For example the brothers who are doing Jihad feesabiliLlah see a lot of dreams that come out to be true because they are being tested by Allah
سبحانه و تعالى thus He assists them.

9) Most of the times, if the dream is a glad tiding from Allah
سبحانه و تعالى it would take a long for it to occur while if it is a warning it would occur swiftly.

For example Yusuf
عليه سلام’s dream took a very long time for it to happen around 40 years. Some scholars say this is because Allah سبحانه و تعالى gives the believer glad tidings early on to give him confidence and hope, to inspire him in his life. While if it is a warning, you would see it and it would occur very soon so that it would be the reason of fear in your heart.

10) Dreams are glad tidings and warnings but cannot be used as a source of Shari‘ah.

Ash-Shatbi
رحمه الله says regarding this, “Benefit of the dream in giving the believer a glad tiding or warning not in legislation and judgement or rulings.”

11) If one sees a dream that is very long like a movie or someone is chasing you and it never ends then most likely that dream doesn’t mean anything. True dreams are short and concise.

12) The dream of a believer pleases him but it does not make him proud or over confident.

Ibn Muflih
رضي الله عنه mentions in his book Adaab ash-Shar‘iyah, “Ibrahim al-Humaydi was righteous man and Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal visited him so Ibrahim told Imam Ahmad, ‘My mother has seen a dream for you where she saw this-and-that for you,’ and then he mentioned Jannah. Imam Ahmad said, ‘My brother, Sahl ibn Salamah, people used to see dreams for him similar to what you mentioned and in the end he ended up shedding blood so the dream pleases the believer, it doesn’t make him boastful.”

13) Dream interpretation is not certain but presumptive and Allah
سبحانه و تعالى says in Surah Yusuf: “And he said to the one he presumed to be saved…” {ayah # 42}

Ibn Kathir
رحمه الله mentions in his An-Nihayah wal Bidayah that there was a caliph (not a good one) of Ibn ‘Abbas who saw dream that he was climbing a dream with 28 steps. So he had that dream interpreted. The one who interpreted his dream told him that the meaning of this dream is, “You will rule for 28 years.” But he died six months later. He died at the age of 28 so the steps were representing his age not the time for his rule.

There was a woman who dreamt that her daughter would break three banners (flag carried in war time). So she went to Ibn Sirin
رحمه الله and he interpreted that dream saying, “If her dream is true, it means that she would marry three noble men all of them would be killed.” When her daughter grew up, she married Yazid ibn al-Muhallab who was a great leader in ‘Iraq and he was killed. Later on, she married ‘Amr ibn Yazid at-Taymi and he was killed. Her third marriage was with al-Hasan ibn ‘Uthman ibn ‘Abdur Rahman ibn ‘Awf رحمه الله, the grandson of the Sahabi ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Awf. She had an argument with him and she told him, “In the Name of Allah, you would be killed.” He asked her the reason and she told him about her dream. He said, “Alright, I am going to divorce you since you think I am going to be killed now!” Finally, she married al-‘Abbas ibn ‘AbdiLlah ibn Harith ibn Nawfal ibn Harith ibn ‘Abdul Muttalib and he was killed.

One man saw in a dream, during the plague, that caskets were coming out of his house and the number of them was equal to the number of his family. So, he interpreted the dream that his entire family would be killed in the plague. And the dream started to manifest itself. His family were dying one after the other and all the bodies were coming out of his house exactly how he saw in his dream until he was the last member of his family left so he was pretty sure that he would be killed by the plague because his dream was, until now, true. But a thief came into his house and was struck by the plague, he fell ill in his house, he died and he was the last body to leave the house and not the person who saw the dream.

14) It is haram and a great sin to claim that one has a seen a dream whilst he has not seen it or to lie in it.

Narrated ‘AbduLlah ibn ‘Abbas
رضي الله عنه that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “Whoever claims to have seen a dream that he has not seen, would be told to tie between two hairs on the Day of Judgement.”

15) A dream could be seen by a person but it could be for someone else.
Al Hakim and ‘AbduLlah Ibn Mubarak narrate that someone saw a dream for Abu Jahl that he became a Muslims and pledged allegiance to Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم. But this never happened. So this dream was for his son, ‘Ikrimah رضي الله عنهwho became a Muslim and pledged allegiance to Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم later on.

A dream was seen for Usayd bin Abil ‘Aas that he became the governor of Makkah and he never did but his son ‘Attab became the governor of Makkah.

16) Same symbol in a dream could mean different things for different people

For example: A man came to Ibn Sirin
رحمه الله and told him that he had seen himself in a dream giving Adhan. Ibn Sirin رحمه الله replied, “You will make Hajj.” Another man came with the same dream and Ibn Sirin رحمه الله replied, “You are a thief!” Ibn Sirin رحمه الله was asked the reason of him giving different interpretations of the same dream to different people and he said, “Because I saw in the first man’s face righteousness and Allah سبحانه و تعالى says in the Qur`an that Ibrahim عليه سلامmade adhan calling people to Hajj so I interpreted this mean that this person would make Hajj. Whilst I saw evil on the face of the other man and Allah سبحانه و تعالى says in Surah Yusuf, ‘then a crier cried: ‘O you (in) the caravan! Surely, you are thieves!’ so I interpreted it to mean that this person is a thief.’”

17) Prophet
صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “A dream is hanging on the leg of a bird (and in another narration on the wing of the bird) as soon as it is interpreted, it happens as it was interpreted.” So some scholars say that if you take your dream to a scholar, it would happen as it is interpreted by him so that’s why you must take it to a person who has knowledge about dream interpretation and or a person who would give you a sincere advice and not to the person who is envious so if the dream is interpreted it would happen as he interpreted. However, there is a difference of opinion regarding this issue. And Allah سبحانه و تعالى knows best.
