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.

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 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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'...
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 ...
Answer to you first question is simple, be organized, precise and exact.
It is crucial to remember, you can achieve the same goal unlimited number of ways, when you ask Allah (swt) for something, do you know how many ways that something can be achieved? When you ask for a million dollars, how many ways can that goal be achieved? In how many different time ...

Some sources of the hadith
The hadith can be found in other sources either in the same or similar wording or as parts of the hadith only.

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)
"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).

" إِذَا رَأَى أَحَدُكُمْ رُؤْيَا يُحِبُّهَا فَإِنَّمَا هِيَ مِنَ اللَّهِ، فَلْيَحْمَدِ اللَّهَ عَلَيْهَا، وَلْيُحَدِّثْ بِهَا، وَإِذَا رَأَى غَيْرَ ...
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:

Among the Muslims of the succeeding generation, the most eminent interpreter was Ibn Sirin, who warned against ...
We may read in the sunnah:

There are certain ahadith speaking about seeing the Prophet in a dream. For instance:
مَنْ رَآنِي فِي الْمَنَامِ فَقَدْ رَآنِي، فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لاَ يَتَخَيَّلُ بِي
Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for Satan cannot imitate my shape.
مَنْ رَآنِي فِي الْمَنَامِ ...
I used to think that dreams can be shared with only your well-wishers, but after reading this following hadith I changed my mind. So it should not be shared regardless. We can see that from the hadith mentioned both in Bukhari and Muslim.
It was narrated from Jaabir that a Bedouin came to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ...
No, having lucid dreams isn't haram. Lucid dreams happen when people sleep. Actions during sleep are not recorded according to the following narration:

is restored to reason, and a ...

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his household) said:
الرؤيا ثلاثة: رؤيا بشرى من الله، ورؤيا تحزين من الشيطان، ورؤيا يحدث

(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 ...
Think of Us as children... I mean really young kids... who normally ask parents for things that many of which can be unreasonable or even harmful.. Allah knows what we are asking him for and why we ask for those things. It is for him to decide, for Him being the most knowledgeable, wise and understanding. He will decide whether to grant us what we ask him ...
Assalamu Alaikum, of course Allah is all hearer and knows all the mysteries. Indeed we can ask Him for solutions and answers, there is nothing wrong in it.
But definitely not in a dream or vision. Because how will you know that the dream/vision is true right from Allah. You might need the sense to understand this which no free-will bearing creations of ...
