As salaamu alaykum Shaykh, I get certain dreams from time to time, and after sometime I end up figuring out the meaning of it either due to something happening or just with contemplation. I don’t know anyone who can tell me the meanings of them but Alhamdulillah I eventually find out. I went Hajj last year Alhamdulillah, first time. In Mina I had a dream at night just before Fajr, I saw a man in the Mina tent, it was just me and him, I was standing in front of him, a few meters away, the man was covered with clothing, all I could see was his hands, and he was separating the food for the people, and he was doing It so perfectly… I thought in my head, who is this man with amazing beautiful manners and technique and a voice in my head said Rasulullah… And before I could react the fajr Azan woke me up. In my dream I was not wearing a hijab, I cover myself well, from head to toe, only displaying my hands, I wear Niqab, and in Ihram still continued to cover face with Ihram niqab… But in my dream Rasulullah was like that and I was not, he was covered with clothing and all I could see was his blessed hands, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Shaykh I know your busy, so forgive me for taking up your time with this email, but I really want to know the meaning and wisdom behind it so I can act on it. I have contemplated and researched, but just want an explanation from someone with knowledge. What prompted me to email you was listening to your lecture on ‘Special’ Love for Rasulullah’.
Walaikumusssalam w w
Alhamdulillah. May Allah increase your love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Your dream is very clear. When your perception is that you are looking at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then you are definitely looking at him. Sometimes we don’t see the face for reasons best known to Allah.
Seeing him covered is an indication towards your covering yourself ie it is a good thing and you should keep it up.
May Allah grant you istiqamat and be pleased with you.
