In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.119 Narrated by Abu Huraira
I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "Nothing is left of the prophetism except Al-Mubashshirat." They asked, "What are Al-Mubashshirat?" He (saws) replied, "The true good dreams (that conveys glad tidings)."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.144 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "When the Day of Resurrection approaches, the dreams of a believer will hardly fail to come true, and a dream of a believer is one of forty-six parts of prophetism, and whatever belongs to prothetism can never be false." Muhammad bin Sirin said, "But I say this." He said, "It used to be said, 'There are three types of dreams: The reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has during wakefulness, what is suggested by Shayttan to frighten the dreamer, or glad tidings from Allah.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.123 Narrated by Anas
The Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for the Shaytaan cannot imitate my shape."
Allah-o-Akbar! Allah-o-Akbar! Allah-o-Akbar! Dear and Beloved Sister in Islam, our sincere and heart-felt congratulations and felicitations to the fortunate believers whom The Merciful Lord has chosen to give glad tidings in their dreams. There is absolutely no doubt that the dream described is indeed a beautiful dream and message of glad tidings from Allah Subhanah.
Al-Muwatta Hadith 2.29
Yahya related Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah (saws) went to the burial grounds and said, "Peace be upon you, home of a people who believe! We shall be among you, Allah willing. I wish that I had seen our brothers!" The people with him said, "O Messenger of Allah! Are we not your brothers?" "No," he (saws) said, "You are my companions. Our brothers are those who have not yet come. And I will precede them to the Hawd. (The Hawd: the watering place of the Prophet (saws) from which he will give to the people of his community on the day of rising.)" They asked him, "O Messenger of Allah! How will you recognize those of your community who come after you?"
He (saws) said, "Doesn't a man who has horses with white legs and white blazes on their foreheads among totally black horses recognize which ones are his own?" They said, "Of course, O Messenger of Allah." He (saws) went on, "Even so will they come on the day of rising with white marks on their foreheads, hands and feet from wudu, and I will precede them to the Hawd. Some men will be driven away from the Hawd as if they were straying camels and I shall call out to them, 'Will you not come? Will you not come? Will you not come?' and someone will say, 'They changed things after you,' so I shall say, 'Then away with them, away with them, away with them!' "
Beloved Sister in Islam, the water that you were given at the hands of the
Noble Prophet (saws) in your blessed dream is none other than the water from
the Hawd Kawthar, which will only be
given to the fortunate believers at their entry into Paradise! Allah Subhanah is our witness, there is no
better glad tiding that can be given to a living believer, than a tiding of
Dear and Beloved Sister in Islam, the only shortcoming in the dream is your sitting in a wheelchair, as it probably connotes a slight weakness in your efforts in the deen. You must try to identify this small weakness and strive your utmost to eliminate this shortcoming.
You must remain and manifest your extreme gratitude and thankfulness to the Merciful Lord for having bestowed this tremendous honor upon you in the form of a good dream, and re-double your efforts in doing more and more good deeds that would make you even more deserving of this gracious honor.
All the brothers and sisters on this forum, and indeed every true believer on this earth would willingly sacrifice all that they have to be given the honor that Allah Subhanah has chosen and bestowed upon you in the form of a glad tiding in a dream. This dream is indeed a great great honor (I really am at a loss of words in the English language that would describe the enormity of this honor!), and Allah Subhanah Alone Knows who amongst His believing slaves best deserves this Grace and Mercy from Him. Such is the un-ending Bounty and Grace of Allah, and He bestows it based on His Perfect Knowledge and Wisdom on whomever He Wills and Pleases.
We once again offer you our sincere and heartiest congratulations and felicitation for receiving and deserving this greatest of all honors; and pray that Allah Subhanah increase His favors upon you and your loved ones.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
