    Dreaming Of The Holy Prophet
    Compiled By
    A Student Of Darul Uloom, Bury


    We glorify Allah and ask blessings and send salutation upon the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam. O Lord! Shower thy blessings and send eternal peace in continuation, upon thy beloved (Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam), who is the best of all the creation.
    It is very fortunate to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream but two points should well be considered in this connection. The first, as written by Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi rahmatullahi alaihe in his book ‘Nish-rut-tib’, is as follows: It is really a source of great consolation, and a great favour for a person who has not seen the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam live, to see him in a dream. However, it should be borne in mind that it can not be acquired, rather it is granted by Allah. A Persian poet says:
    "This felicity cannot be earned through strength but only when Allah grants and bestows."
    Many people have devoted their whole lives in the hope of this fortune. One might have succeeded if he sends Durood upon the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam abundantly and follows his ways with love and eagerness. Nevertheless, if a person is not successful, he should not be worried because it may be due to some unknown Wisdom and the Mercy of Allah. A lover only wants the pleasure of his beloved whether it is because of union or due to separation. As a poet rightfully says:
    "I want a meeting with him (the beloved) but he wants separation, and I leave my pleasure for his pleasure."
    Shirazi, a Persian poet and Mystic says, "Meeting or separation have no value in comparison to the pleasure of the beloved; and to seek any other thing than his pleasure is an offence (in love)."
    Secondly, if a person saw the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in his dream, he really and certainly saw him. This is supported by authentic and strong Ahaadith. It has been verified that Satan has not been empowered to change himself in the guise of the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream or that he may declare himself as the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream. It is also impossible that the person dreaming may misunderstand Satan as the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam. May Allah protect us from this.
    May Allah Ta’ala make this article beneficial for the entire world. We invoke blessings on the greatest creation of the Almighty, the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam and ask that He be pleased with him and all his companions and followers till the day of judgement. And may He forgive the compilers of this publication, Aameen. Return To Contents
    He Who Has Seen Me In A Dream Has Certainly Seen Me

    It is stated in a Hadith, Hazrat Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reports that the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "He who sees me in a dream has certainly seen me, because Satan can not take my form."
    (Bukhari, Muslim)

    The Muhadditheen (commentators of hadith) have mentioned various opinions regarding its meanings. Mulla Ali Qari rahmatullahi alaihe whilst commentating on this hadith writes in Mirqat, "It is like he has seen the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in real life, but he will not be considered as to be a Sahabi, neither is it obligatory to carry out the orders given to him by the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam within the dream."

    (Mirqat v.9, p.24)
    Mulla Ali Qari rahmatullahi alaihe further writes in Mirqat (p.24) that some people are of the opinion that this hadith is concerning those people present at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam. This means that those who see me in a dream, Allah will enable them to see me in real life.


    This opinion is also supported by another hadith in Mishkat, Hazrat Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reports that the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "He who saw me in a dream will soon see me when he is awake, for Satan can not take my form."
    (Mishkat p.394)

    Another opinion is that the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam is informing that who ever saw me in a dream, let he be known that his dream is true and genuine, (for Satan cannot take my form).

    Those people who claimed to have received special guidance from the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream cannot be denied. It should be kept in mind that, if the orders and guidance received by them is in accordance with the laws of Shariah then it will be a source of evidence for themselves and not for others. However, if the guidance is contrary to the laws of Shariah then it will not be accepted nor will it be a source of evidence for anyone.
    The reason for this is that not every person is privileged enough to understand dreams and their interpretations. Peoples’ dreams can differ by their own personality. Seeing the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in unclear and strange circumstances can be based on the weakness of the person’s Imaan.

    It is reported by Sheikh Ali Muttaqi rahmatullahi alaihe that a person saw the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream ordering him to consume alcohol. He became very disturbed by this dream; thus, he referred to the Ulama (Scholars) of his time to find out the interpretation and explanation of his dream. The scholars gave various explanations about his dream. During this, the issue came to Sheikh Muhammad bin Uraat rahmatullahi alaihe who was a very pious scholar, he said that the fact is that the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "Do not consume alcohol." However, due to his misunderstanding and the disorder of his mind he understood the contrary and heard him saying, "Consume alcohol." Rather than do not consume alcohol."
    (Mazhair-ul-Haq p.325 vol.4)

    Innovating In Religion Because Of Dreams
    In Fazail-e-Durood Shareef, Hazrat Sheikh Zakaria rahmatullahi alaihe says that, "It is possible that due to the person’s bad habits, the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam said the words with great anger. In the same way that a person who is angry over his son says to him, ‘Go on do it.’ and the dreamer thought that it was a mere order from the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam.
    From the above mentioned passage we can gather for ourselves that the people who introduce religious innovations based upon dreams and attribute them to the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam are totally contradicting the spirit of the Shariah and are certainly astray from the Seerat-ul-Mustaqeem (Straight path). Such people should immediately resort to repentance.

    The Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam has condemned those who introduce innovations in religion in various Ahaadith. It is reported in one of them that, Hazrat Aisha radiallahu anha narrates that the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "He who innovates something in this religion of ours, which does not belong to it, is repulsed."
    (Mishkat p.27)

    It is also stated in another Hadith, Hazrat Ibrahim bin Maysara radiyallahu anhu narrates that the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "He who showed respect for an innovator, has in fact assisted in undermining Islam."

    (Mishkat p.31)

    Seeing The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam In A Dream Is Not Sufficient For Salvation
    It should also be kept in mind that even if somebody saw the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in his dream and yet continued to disobey Allah and did not earn His pleasure, then that will not be sufficient for salvation. Even during the days of the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam there were numerous people who were seeing the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam every day, yet remained dwellers of hell, because Imaan had not reached their hearts and they did not earn the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. While others (like Hazrat Uwais Qarni rahmatullahi alaihe) did not see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam but are considered among the very pious, and true Muslims.

    Hazrat Uwais Qarni rahmatullahi alaihe is amongst the great Tabi’een. It is stated by Hazrat Umar bin Khattab radiyallahu anhu in a Hadith that I heard the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, "The best of the Tabi’een will be a man called Uwais who has a mother and has been afflicted by leprosy. Tell him to ask forgiveness for you."
    (Muslim p.311)

    On the other hand Abu Jahal used to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam regularly but did not accept Islam. A poet says in Urdu:

    "Though Uwais radiyallahu anhu was far, yet became near (to the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam, because of his piety) and Abu Jahal was near (to him) but became far. (because of his blasphemy)."

    From the above mentioned we deduce that just to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream and not carrying out the orders of Shariah is not sufficient for salvation.

    According to Mazahir-e-Haq, Imam Naawawi rahmatullahi alaihe says, "If a person sees the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in his dream, it is true disregarding the fact that he sees his recognised features and qualities or otherwise. The differences in appearance are due to the good or bad habits and qualities of the person who sees him in his dream. The person who sees him with his good qualities would be related to piety and it will be assign on the strength of his Imaan. However if someone sees him in unrecognised conditions then this will need interpretations from a person who is qualified in this field. According to peoples own personalities their dreams could differ. Some dream him old while others young. Some see him pleased while others find him annoyed."
    (Mazahir-e-Haq p.24 vol.4)

    From the above we can conclude that to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream will need to be interpreted and to dream him is a test for ones own personality.

    A Method Of Seeing The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam In A Dream
    Every Muslim has the desire to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream. The desire increases more and more due to the love and affection. Many great saints have written various exercises and deeds out of their own experience, which may help, in seeing the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream. I would like to mention one way which will assist in seeing the blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream. According to the book ‘Virtues of Durood Shareef" (written by Hazrat Sheikh Zakaria sahib rahmatullahi alaihe). Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dahalwi rahmatullahi alaihe writes that if a person offers two rak`aah’s nafl salaah and recites twenty five times Surah Ikhlas after Surah Al-Fatiha in each rak’aah thereafter recites one thousands times the following Durood, he will (Allah willing) see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in his dream.
    However, it should be kept in mind that the main cause of seeing the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam is the desire of the heart, abundant Durood Shareef and refraining from sins. May Allah enable us to see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in a dream and give us the true understanding of Deen, Aameen.
    One of the students of Darul Uloom asked our Patron, Hazrat Moulana Yusuf sahib, "Why do I not see the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in my dreams even though I pray Durood Shareef regularly." Hazrat replied, "It is our duty to keep reciting and it is not right for us to call him to our dream. If he wishes he will come. It is not right to try and force a king to visit your home. Similarly we should just keep up our rituals and hope that one day the rituals will prove faithful and we will achieve our goal." O Lord! Shower thy Blessings and send eternal peace in continuation, upon Thy Beloved (Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam) who is the best of all creation.

    Mashalah kais,
    Mubarak on ur dream! Its great

    By the way...u feeling that youre not worth seeing the prophet (sa) is a good sign. One should be humble and think they are not worthy of seeing such a great person. So humility is good.

    And remember it is ALLAH (swt) who determines our relationship and spirituality with HIM, and not vice versa.
    If we show will, he creates the way for us. So keep up the good intentions and feelings you have for islam.
    May Allah give you and all muslims sucess. amin.
    ciao

    subhanallah may allah make it the first of many. so far iv only managed to see senior ulema in my dreams inshallah when i gain more taqwa and love of rasoolullah (saw) i can see him to.

    also this is for the ulema on this site. once a few years ago i did have a dream in which i thought i saw rasoolullah (saw) he was dressed in white and was sorrouned by people around some kind of lake drinking from it and doing wudu. however the prophet (saw) face was not how its described in the books. even thought the person in my dream had a handsome face but he was beardless. forgive me if this is an evil dream and thus should not have been posted. if this is the case feel free to remove it

    Response from

    WWW.*************** - English Fatwa Department

    Question:

    Had a dream last night, there was a gathering of sum sorts, not sure of the locations.... a man appeared draped in a white sheet (it reminded me of the cloth people were when they die) the ehram everyone was saying it was the prophet mohammed pbuh, i saw the face clearly but all the time i was thinking this was a fake dream...dunno why...it was like why shud i see him...i aint no perfect muslim...etc...etc.. but then i read this morning in a book...those who have seen the prophet mohammed (PBUH) have actually seen him as the shaytaan cant take his form... i saw people gathering......and people were saying the prophet is going to come... then a man came....tall...must have been 5ft ten to 6 ft....he was draped in a white sheet.... then all i saw was the face.... the sheet covered the prophet head to toe.... all that was on view was his face... a long beard, black beard... kinda curly like...no moustache...this i did see.. i saw the complexion of the skin....was kinda olivy brown... thoughout the dream i was in denial.....thinking this cant be real.....why wud i see the prophet pbuh of all people.... #the face..was long, eyebrows didnt join or anything....cheeks were plump.....no white hair.... long black thick beard... curly like in old times....sparkly eyes..thats all i noticed in the dream..... i noticed the whote drapings more.... like how they wrap bodies when people pass on... covereed on the head too.. can u tell me if this was actually a genuine dream?







    Answer:

    Dear questioner:



    Al-Salâm `Alaykum wa Rahmah Allah wa Barakâtuh.



    It is possible to see the Prophet (peace be upon him) in dreams. But, this is not something to be done by our own efforts or because someone "deserves" it. It is from Allah.



    Likewise, it is no fault on a person that he does not to see the Prophet (peace be upon him) in his dreams. The only blame is for a person not to obey his commands that are found in the Sunnah. Allah says: “Say: ‘If ye do love Allah; follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful” [Sűrah Âl-`Imrân: 31]



    As for the possibility of seeing the Prophet (peace be upon him) in dreams, he said: “He who saw me in a dream has indeed seen me, for the Satan does not appear in my form.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (6993) and Sahîh Muslim (2266)]



    Whether this means that no one will have a dream where someone in it claims to be the Prophet (peace be upon him) without it being so, or whether the hadîth simply means that no one will have a dream where the exact appearance of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is falsely represented – Allah knows best which of these is the case. In the latter case, the only people who could be sure to have seen the Prophet (peace be upon him) are those who saw him firsthand and knew what he looked like.



    In any case, there are no practical consequences for this question. Please read the following answer below from our archives



    And Allah knows best.

    Dreams and Islamic Law

    By Sheikh Sâmî al-Mâjid, professor at Imam University



    In Islamic jurisprudence, we have five legal rulings: obligatory (wâjib), preferred (mustahabb), permissible (mubâh), disliked (makrűh), and forbidden (harâm).



    Dreams are not and cannot be a source for these rulings. This is the consensus of Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jamâ’ah on the matter.



    Anyone who declares that something is preferred or obligatory on the basis of a dream is coming with an innovation in our religion and calling people to fiction and misguidance.



    The great jurist, Imam al-Nawawî writes: “If it was the 29th night of Sha`bân and people could not see the crescent, then someone saw the Prophet (peace be upon him) in his dream informing him that ‘tonight is the beginning of Ramadân’, no one would be allowed to fast on the basis of that dream, not the one who saw the dream nor anyone else.” [al-Majmű` (6/292)]
