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:
Please interpret this dream i saw my grandad (may Allah the Most High forgive him) testify to the shahadah just before he passed away and then i closed his eyes and closed his mouth/lifted his jaws. p.s he had passed away 14 years ago.

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.' "
The dreams that you experienced was most probably a form of glad tidings from your Lord or even a mere reflection of the thoughts which you might have during wakefulness.And Allah Alone Knows Best.
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,
