World of Dreams

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Wassalatu Wassalamu ala Rasulillah

Good dreams that are from Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), act as those sweet raindrops which fall from high skies to cool the heated and thirsty ground. They put the heart at ease and raise the morale of a person.

Samurah ibn Jundub said, “Whenever the Prophet finished the (morning) prayer, he would face us and ask, “Who amongst you had a dream last night?” So if anyone had seen a dream he would narrate it. The Prophet would say: “Masha’Allah” [al-Bukhari]

Before the battle of Badr set off, Allah `azza wa jall did something amazing for the believers, although it was quite subtle:

“(And remember) when Allah showed them to you as few in your dream, if He had shown them to you as many, you (the believers) would surely have been discouraged, and you would surely have disputed in making a decision. But Allah saved you. Certainly, He is the All-Knower of what is in the breasts.” [al-Anfal: 43]

The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) was shown a dream in which the opposition appeared very few in number, and he then reported this to the fighters of Badr which immediately put their hearts to rest and strengthened them mentally. By simply showing this dream, Allah `azza wa jall changed the entire way the believers viewed their enemy and He totally shifted their perspective of things, leading to their success. This is something we can do in our everyday lives…

Keep yourself connected to Allah `azza wa jall. When the world’s realities are bringing you down, He can send the world of dreams to bring you right back up.

Abu Hurairah said, “I heard Allah’s Messenger saying, “Nothing is left of Prophethood except Al-Mubashshirat.” They asked, “What are Al-Mubashshirat?” He replied, “The true good dreams (that conveys glad tidings).” [al-Bukhari]
