Probably, it is considered as a common matter for everyone to encounter/see many dreams during his/her daily or nightly sleeping. Occasionally, it is said that some of dreams could have actual Ta'bir/Tafsir (interpretation), and actually they will be happened in the future.

So, I was wondering if we can trust our dreams. If so, how much can we trust them as actual happenings which are going to be happened in the future? Is there any related hadith (tradition)?

  • Oh, yeah, you are right. Actually AFAIK solely a limited category of them can be deemed as the right one. Thank you for mentioning that. Commented Dec 16, 2015 at 7:18

1 Answer 1


Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his household) said:

الرؤيا ثلاثة: رؤيا بشرى من الله، ورؤيا تحزين من الشيطان، ورؤيا يحدث بها الانسان نفسه، فيراها في النوم

(Briefly and approximate translation): There are three types of dreams, the dreams :

1: which are Beshaarat (good news) from Allah

2: which are … from Satan

3: which are reflex of our spiritual matters (based on daily behaviors and thoughts…)

Although there is a kind of dream which supposed as a true or Saadegheh dreams, but apparently majority of dreams look to be false. (Of course there are some conditions for True Dreams…)
