Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
One night, i had a dream about my father. He was sitting infront of me and said to me "can you hear that?" I replied "no". He said to me allah is talking to me. Ever since i had this dream i have wondered whether it meant anything. Did research `dreams` within islam, but unable to find the answer to my question? Did this dream mean anything?

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 none 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 9.144 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, 'There are three types of dreams:
- The reflection of one's thoughts and experiences one has during wakefulness,
- what is suggested by the Shaytaan to frighten the dreamer,
- or glad tidings from Allah.
So, if someone has a dream which he dislikes, he should not tell it to others, but get up and offer a prayer.' "
Dear and beloved sister in Islam, if one has been blessed and honored by their Lord to witness a good dream, then without an iota of a doubt, that dream is one of glad tidings from Allah Subhanah.
A believer who is blessed to witness a dream of glad tidings from Allah Subhanah should recognize the tremendous honor their Lord has blessed them with, be extremely gratefully to their Lord for the honor He has bestowed upon them, and strive their utmost to do more good righteous deeds that would justify the honor that their Lord Most Gracious has bestowed them with.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
