A very sensible summary indeed. 

Yes, that's a very realistic explanation posted by Sister Heba.

Btw, would you know anything about that non-Quranic story that's been circulating for a while that dreams shortly before or after Fajr come true?

This idea of dreams being true before or after Fajr comes from one of Abu Huraira's ahadith, and nothing he said has ever been confirmed by the Noble Quran.  Following is that hadith:

Narrated by Abu Hurayra in Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, al-Tirmidhi and Ahmad, Malik.  "Our Lord - Blessed and Exalted is He! - descends every night to the lowest heaven in the last third of the night and says: Who is supplicating Me so that I may answer him? Who is asking forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?"

Allah Almighty has confirmed no such concepts.  Sometimes a dream at such a time may have some connections with truth but not necessary.  It all depends on the Will of Allah.   No matter what time the dream comes, we need to be focused on the quality of the dream to perceive its possible message.   And only Allah knows best.

Walaikum As-Salam dear sis .......

Subhan'Allah ... nice dreamy images you posted  Smiley

A few weeks ago I was reading a blog titled "Islam and psychology" that contains a lengthy article on dreams based on Islamic belief.  I read most of it though not the complete piece.  There maybe a few points one may not agree with in this article, but the broad definition is very sensible. 

Quoting Islam and psychology:

"Dreams are of three types: one good dream which is a sort of good tidings from Allah; the evil dream which causes pain is from the satan; and the third one is a suggestion of one's own mind.   

Dreams from Allah have meaning and interpretation.  Allah gives us some glad tiding, or shows us some path, or gives us some future information. Also, the dream can be an encouragement etc. In short, the dream has some meaning, and if it is a 'coded' dream then it needs an interpretation.

Dreams from Shaitan are meaningless and is an attempt from Shaitan to make us worried.

Dreams from Nafs do tell us about the nature and thoughts of the dreamer but they have no real information for the dreamer himself.  Hence, for the dreamer these dreams are meaningless."


Dreams from Allah have been explained well.  But this blog is of the view that dreams from Allah are repeated again and again.  This is something which may not be necessary.  Often we have a very meaningful dream and we are convinced that Allah has a message for us through that dream.  And then it may never come again.  Sometimes it may, but not necessary.

Dreams from Shaitaan as meaningless and an attempt to disrupt our lives is a very correct assessment.  Dreams from nafs have also been gauged correctly which is the commonest of all dreams.

As-Salam Alaykum dear everyone.

I've read the very interesting thread we have here on dreams, the original query posted by brother Abu Hafeez, "What does the Quran say about dreams?"

This thread has been hugely helpful for me as I prepare to participate in a post-lecture discussion session at our Islamic community center on the first weekend of Ramadan, Insh'Allah.

I was wondering if anyone has anything else to add as possible information in regard to this topic.  As Muslims, is it obligatory for us to believe in dreams?

We had a thorough discussion on this topic last Thursday, comparing the Quranic content with non-Quranic works.  This post which I showed to everyone on the projector was a huge help.

In the era of technology people often brag  how obsolete the use paper and pen has become.  Every bit of written work is keyboarded and saved in the computers or cell phones.  But this is a negative trend.  Technology isn't meant to be stretched as far as that.   If you need to prepare a to-do list, jot down a recipe, compose a little poem or sketch a cartoon, don't rush to your laptop to make and save.  Your well-designed writing table with those essential stationary are still a huge necessity in your home .. the kind of household belongings that make your house a home.   Furthermore, as much as possible, save yourself from the glare of the computer screen which often triggers headaches and of course, the cell phone radiation, a suspect which many researchers consider an enemy to our health.

I learned from somewhere that perhaps this image is based on some Iranian movie scene.

I wouldn't know about that sister, but it could be so.  The real point is poverty exists everywhere and is growing.  In the so-called welfare turned well-farce states of the West, homelessness is perpetually on the rise and is devastating human life.  In many cities and towns of north America even the shelters are full.

As Muslims, it's incumbent upon us to do whatever we can to help poor children whose parents aren't sure when their kids last ate a proper meal.  It's best to give in kind (food, candies, clothing, toys, medicines) rather than cash as many parents of the poor also tend to misuse cash.   Unfortunately this too is a problem.

......... unfortunately some artists in Iran are using their images to promote propaganda.  .......

Really?   That's thoroughly improper.  Without any doubts, some of the most excruciating stories on poverty come from the richest lands.
