Dreams are considered one part of prophecy, see this hadith: When the end of time draws near, hardly any believer will see a false dream, and the ones who see the truest dreams will be the ones who are truest in speech. And the dream of the believer is one of the forty-six parts of prophecy. Ibn Majah; see also Muslim and the Muwatta. A particular ...

Dreams or as you said Lucid dreams occur when one is sleeping. There is a hadith which states that It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The Pen has been lifted from three: from the sleeping person until he wakes up, from the minor until he grows up, and from the insane person until he ...

Dreams (رؤیا) have different kinds, authentic or not authentic, and the authentic ones are themselves symbolic or realistic. First note that sleeping according to Quran is very similar to death: وَهُوَ الَّذِي يَتَوَفَّاكُم بِاللَّيْلِ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا جَرَحْتُم بِالنَّهَارِ ثُمَّ يَبْعَثُكُمْ فِيهِ لِيُقْضَىٰ أَجَلٌ مُّسَمًّى ۖ ثُمَّ إِلَيْهِ ...

Praise be to Allaah. According to a hadith narrated by Anas, the prophet said, Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for Satan cannot imitate my shape.

Dreams are three kinds: 1- From Allah 2- From Shaytaan 3- From oneself Now the dreams from Allah can be understood as those good dreams which give you good feelings/tidings that something good is about or is going to happen. The dreams from Shaytaan can be understood as those dreams which do nothing but frighten you, in other words nightmare. Now ...

No, that is an incorrect reading of the ayah. "When Allah showed them to you in your dream as few", that's referring to the Prophet's dream before the Battle of Badr, where the enemy was shown "as few" so as not to discourage him. It has nothing to do with the number of dreams he — or the believers — had received or would receive.

The perception of dream interpretation and fortune telling in Islam Dream interpretation in Islam is considered as a "science" (maybe here a better translation is a specific kind of knowledge, which one can learn or can be gifted by Allah) the basis for this interpretation from the Quran: for example it says about Yusuf (): And thus will your Lord choose ...

The case is similar to a Muslim who has a dream where he is told to do worship an idol. The dreamer has no surety that the dream is a command from God, and indeed it goes against what is certainly the command of Allah (to not commit shirk) ... in all likelihood the dream is a trick from the devil to misguide the dreamer. Comparing oneself to Abraham is a ...

How do you know if a dream you had has a meaning behind it? We don't know. The rule of thumb is that the dreams have no relation or meaning to our lives (except for the dreams of Prophets). If one has dreamed about something pleasant and lawful then s/he can make dua and ask Allah to make it come to true. On the other hand, if the dream is of bad or sinful ...

No dream interpretation is not haram, and those who interpret dreams may get it right or may get it wrong as is clear from what the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Abu Bakr when he interpreted a dream: أَصَبْتَ بَعْضًا وَأَخْطَأْتَ بَعْضًا You have interpreted a part of it correctly and you have erred in interpreting a part of it ...

The companions of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) knew him by face, so if they see him then its no doubt that the dream is NOT from the Devil. As we do not know him by face, we can not be sure that it is indeed him that we saw. So it's better not to make any judgement on such dream, but rely on Allah's and our Prophet's guidance and our God-given intellect.

Because there are narrations about the Prophet instructing us not to do so: It was reported that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘If any one of you sees something that he dislikes (in a dream), let him get up and pray, and not tell people about it. (narrated by Muslim, 2263) It was narrated from ...

In Quran there have been several cases of real dreams, and it was not limited to the people who were Muslim or even believed in the only God.

I am not going to comment on the subject of the dreams since I don't get dreams like that (Alhamdulilah) neither I know anything about that subject. But, as I understand the question, it boils down to the fact that when shayateen are chained in Ramadaan, why does evil stuff still happens. It is related to another question that I had put up an answer before ...

Note that the problem with a revelation in a dream is that while a dream may be a kind of revelation we don't have any knowledge of any verse of the Quran revealed this way and could only know about it if our Messenger told us about it. However he has been shown many signs of things which would happen later before they happened, but as far as I understood OP'...

If it is a good dream, then yes you should tell others but if it is a bad dream, don't tell others.

"How do Muslims interpret dreams?" Dream interpretation is an ability bestowed by Allah (ﷻ) and without that ability, we have no means or methods to interpret dreams. There is also no resource that you can go to that will give you an interpretation to every dream. (Each dream is unique per person). If interested you may read this compilation I made: ...

According to scholarly opinion (like Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah), it is possible to see Allah in a dream. But it is also possible that devil comes in dream and tells - 'I am Allah'. The point to note is that in whatever form a believer sees Allah in dream, He is not at all like that, because 'There is nothing like unto Him'. (Quran 42:11) Important ...

Your inquiry has no clear answer, I'd say it is more about your reaction about it. As for the facts there' actually is a sahih (sound) narration or prophetic tradition saying: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who sees me in his dream will see me in his wakefulness (or he (ﷺ) may have said it is as though he has seen me in a state of wakefulness), for ...

No, having lucid dreams isn't haram. Lucid dreams happen when people sleep.
