What Does Seeing Prophets In a Dream Mean?

Question: What does seeing Prophets in a dream mean?


Wa ‘alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.

I pray you are well.

In general, seeing the Prophets and Companions in a dream is a good thing. It can indicate that one loves them, and ”You will be with those who you love,” as the Prophet said (Allah bless him and give him peace). [Bukhari] Take a good sign from it, and ask Allah to bring you the good of the dream.

As for the specific meanings of the dreams, I do not know what they mean. Dream interpretation is a gift and a skill, and those who are skilled in it usually say they have to know the person who saw the dream in order to know how its meanings relate to the one who saw it specifically.

Ask Allah for the ability to embody the good qualities of the din. That will make you beloved to Him – and what a gift that would be!

May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
