Islamic dream interpretation is one of the certain areas in Islaam that out ignorance or
misunderstanding of these areas, many people have deviated from the correct teachings of Islaam.
Muslims need to understand these areas very well, else, people in whose hearts are diseases of
ignorance, innovations in the Deen, hypocrisy, disbelieve and Shirk (giving an attribute of the Creator
to a creature) will continue to easily misguide people.

The concept of dream in Islaam is an area that every Muslim should try to understand properly so that
they are not made to fall into Shirk (association of partner with Allaah – Subhaanahu Wata'aala)
whenever they encounter one type of dream or the other. This is because many so called Muslims have
been led into association of partners with Allaah (Subhaanahu Wata'aala), by some so called learned
people, after encountering one dream or the other.

The Last of Allaah’s Prophets and Messengers (Prophet Muhammad – Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam)
made it known to this Last Muslim Ummah that dreams are of three types: rahmaani (dreams from
Allaah), nafsaani (psychological dreams) and Shaytaani (dreams from Shaytaan). This is in accordance
with an Hadeeth in Bukhaaree and Muslim, where the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam) said:

“Dreams are of three types: a dream from Allaah, a dream which causes distress and which comes from
the Shaytaan, and a dream which comes from what a person thinks about when he is awake, and he
sees it when he is asleep.”1

Since it is established from the Best of mankind (Prophet Muhammad –Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam)
that bad dream can come from Shaytaan, this is a reason while the Muslims should know the authentic
teachings of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam) on dream so as to guide themselves from the
handiwork of Shaytaan (satan). Knowing the authentic teachings of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi
Wasallam) on dream is what will also ensure their guidance on authentic Islamic dream interpretation.

Whichever means people are using to interpret dreams, only dreams interpreted based on the Holy Qur-
aan, authentic Ahaadeeth, the understanding of the pious predecessors (that is, the Prophet’s
Companions and their true followers) and all the correct rules and procedures guiding dream
interpretation in Islaam could be regarded as Islamic dream interpretation. Any interpretation of dream
that is NOT based on the above mentioned measures will lead to nothing other that misguidance. We
pray Allaah (Subhaanahu Wata'aalaa) to save us all from this, Aameen.

Subhaanallaahi wabihamdihi, Subhaanakallaahumma wabihamdik, Ash-hadu anlaa ilaaha illaa Anta,


Astaghfiruka wa atuubu ilayk.
