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:
Brother few years back i had a dream that i was sitting in a gathering some where in a desert and we were waiting for some one. then a man came on a camel and introduced him self a Prpphet Mohammaed(s.a.w). then he taught us somehting on the board. I dont remember what he taught us. i know that shayateen cant disguise as him(s.a.w) but the thing is before going to bed that night i didnt offer any prayer and i was not even in a state or purity.Due you think that it was really Mohammed(s.a.w)

Dream of prophet(saws)
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 9.123 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."
Beloved brother, it is indeed declared in an authentic narration and true that the Shaytaan cannot imitate the shape of the Noble Prophet (saws); but it does not mean that the Shaytaan cannot take the shape of another human being and claim to be the Prophet Mohamed (saws)!
Thus the guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that when one sees him (saws) in their dreams cannot be the Shaytaan is only valid for those who actually saw the Prophet (saws) in their lives and recognized his features.
But if one sincerely felt the state of spiritual bliss in their dream, it is indeed possible that the Lord might have blessed and honored one amongst His believing slaves to actually see the Noble Prophet (saws) in their dreams.
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 Satan 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 brother in Islam, if one has been blessed and honored by their Lord to witness the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) in their dreams, then without an iota of a doubt, that dream is one of glad tidings from Allah Subhanah.
Beloved brother, it is possible that whom we might look upon as ordinary or sinning people might have done deeds which have great weight in the Scales of Allah Subhanah. The brother/sister who witnesses a dream from Allah Subhanah whereby they are honored to see the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws). that person 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 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,
