A Good Dream or A Nightmare


What do you do after seeing a dream, be it good or bad, what do you do?
Do you scream at the top of your voice?
Do you run to tell it to your friends?
Do you write about it on Facebook?
Alright, enough with the questions, I’m just going to tell you, when you see a dream, this is what you do

1. Spit to your left. (Three times)
2. Seek refuge in Allah from the Devil and from the evil of what you have seen. (Three times)
3. Do not speak about it to anyone.
4. Turn over on your other side.
5. Get up and pray if you desire to do so.

Now let’s differentiate between the dreams, good dream or nightmare
Good Dream or Nightmare

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying, “When one of you sees a dream that he likes, then it is from Allah. He should praise Allah for it and relate it to (others).”

Another narration adds: Messenger of Allah(PBUH) said, “He should not report it except to those whom he loves. And if he sees one which he dislikes, then it is from the Satan. He should seek refuge in Allah against its evil and should not mention it to anyone. Then it will not harm him.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Abu Qatadah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “A good vision (dream) is from Allah and a bad dream is from the Satan. He who sees something in a dream that he dislikes, should blow thrice on his left, must seek Allah’s Refuge from the evil of the Satan (i.e., by saying: A`udhu billahi minash-Shaitanir-Rajim). Then it will not harm him.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Ps: If you experience unrest, fear or apprehension in your sleep, you should say

‘A’oothu bikalimaatil-laahit-taammaati min ghadhabihi wa ‘iqaabihi, wa sharri ‘ibaadihi, wa min hamazaatish-shayaateeni wa ‘an yahdhuroon.

I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah from His anger and His punishment, from the evil of His slaves and from the taunts of devils and from their presence.

That’s all on today’s edition of Revive a Sunnah, till next week in sha Allah

Peace be with you…
