Dreams move to new house.
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:
After doingIstikhara for shifting in a new flat , (building has a swiiming pool), my husband dreamt that he got down in the pool with the kids, and later his leg slipped and he is drowning in the pool.
Should we or we should not shift in the new flat

Dreams move to new house
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 true 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, "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 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, in light of the above guidance, it is more than likely that the dream your husband experienced was no more than a reflection of the thoughts of fear for the safety of the children which any loving parent would hold.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 51:
Say: "Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector"; and on Allah let the believers put their trust.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:
17 If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 3:
And put your trust in Allah Alone; and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
Beloved Sister, one should not fear the occurrences of such dreams, nor should one change ones lawful decisions only because they saw an upsetting dream.but rather the believers should fear and keep their faith and trust and hope in their Lord Most Majestic Alone, and know with total and absolute conviction that absolutely nothing can or will happen unto them except that which their Lord Most Supreme has Decreed for them.Allah Subhanah Alone Suffices as a Protector, and in Him Alone should the believers put their unconditional trust and faith.
Your Question: Should we or we should not shift in the new flat
Beloved Sister, in the Blessed Name of Allah move without fear into your new accommodation, and keep your faith and trust in the Mercy, Power and Strength of your Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful ..and know and believe with total and absolute conviction that absolutely nothing can happen to you or your family without the Precise Will and Permission of your Lord Most Merciful.
If you ever fear any evil from any quarter whatsoever, recite the 113th Surah Al-Falaq and the 114th Surah An-Naas as often as you can or is easy for you.it is expected that your Lord Most High will protect you and your family from any and all harm, Insha Allah.
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,
