    Unhappy what does my dream mean

    Asalaam o alaikum brothers and siters
    I am new to this forum, AND I AM A HAPPY MEMBER NOW.Alhumdulillah
    Lately i am having dreams which are bothering ma a lot.
    Most of the time by the time i wake up and start my daily chorus i tend to forget what my dream was, but still feel restless remebering that it wasnt a good dream.
    I want to share my dream and want to to know what it means.
    First i want to know
    1) Is it allowed to narrate your dream.
    2)Is there a way i can have a sound and dreamless sleep.
    Regards

    Advice from our beloved Prophet - if you have a bad dream, spit three times to your left and don't tell anybody

    If the Shaytan is bugging you in your sleep, try doing wudhu before you go to bed, reciting Ayat-ul Qursi, and dropping off silently repeating "Allah" in your head (or any dua of course). If you fall asleep "connected" to Allah within, inshaAllah the Shaytan will keep away all night. There are other duaas and ayat specifically recommended for keeping the Shaytan away all night - one of the SF sisters suggests:
    "Nothing will harm the one who reads the following dua in the morn and eve (Tirmidhi narration states read it thrice in the evening)
    aaudhu bikalimatilahi taamaati minshari maa klalaq
    I take refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil He has created.".

    If you are getting a recurring bad dream with specific "symbols" - symbols that aren't connected to your everyday life or a movie you watched recently or whatever! - you can ask about those if you're really curious - I have a huge book of dream symbols and their Islamic interpretation. Sometimes things which seem awful aren't awful at all!

    Example: I dreamt my husband was grinding up human bones and eating them. In my dream I wasn't shocked or anything, just found it weird. Anyway, days later I remembered to look up the symbolism and it meant inshaAllah "an indication that the person grinding and eating human bones will... adhere to the Sunnah more closely than before, and lead a righteous, orderly life".

    Or, to dream that you are on fire doesn't indicate the obvious (Jahannam, may Allah protect us all, ameen), but indicates that the burning person is consumed with Love (for Allah).

    By the way - welcome to the forum!!

    Sister Kayra is right

    You can narrate your dream in order to get an interpretation. Repeated dreams have signs in them. If I remember right Shaykh Abd (db) a khalifa of Mufti Taqi Usmani (db) lives in Jeddah. You can email him from the website http://ashrafiya.com

    For sound sleep try these:
    Recite Surah Naba before you sleep.
    Recite Istighfar 100 times and then Durood Sharif until you fall asleep.

    If you see any difference please tell us.

    A quick addendum to the above advice. Ensure your other half is on your right - otherwise your problems will just multiply.

    Salaam brother, iif you have a 'nightmare' type dream where it bothers/frightens you and you forget what you saw in it too pretty quickly after you wake up [or even if you dont forget], then this type is most probably from the shaytan trying to scare you, and after such dreams, as soon as you wake up, say 'audhibillah himinash shaytaanirajeem' and spit three times on the left and then no harm will come from that dream

    Salam

    ps: WELCOME!

    Haha. Just in case your (actually pretty funny) joke confused anybody not in the habit of spitting three times to their left after a bad dream: the spitting does not involve hawking or copious quantities of saliva. Just air and a kind of "tu tu tu" sound. Quiet, non-intrusive.

    ; your right bro, but as Sis kayra said, it only involves a slight 'tu tu tu',. and ofcourse, one should no aim at their spouse!

    You never know, if there are 2 spouses who hate each other's guts, they'll be fighting to sleep on the left side of the bed...

    Isn't it from the Sunnah to relate dreams to your companions (good dreams, that is) ? I remember a riwaya about sharing dream experiences, where it was emphasised and a good practice to do so.
