Discerning an Allah Given Dream

There are three sources of thoughts in our heads – ourselves, Allah and the enemy, so as dreams.

  • Dreams from the enemy bring fear, are often dark, hopeless, and full of temptation; nightmares are obvious examples. Allah may show or tell you about negative things that are going to happen, but there has always been a message of hope within the dream. Allah never adds fear to your life; He always reduces it. You might see a dream that shows you the cause of your fear but then provides a solution.
  • Dreams from ourselves can be processing of events and trauma, or reactions to the environment.  They can highlight our own desires and fears.

Someone gave eight questions to help understand a dream’s meaning:

  • What is the major feeling/emotion in the dream? The most significant clue to what the dream is about is the emotional element. Were you afraid? Confident? What caused the emotion?
  • Does any of this dream remind you of anything yesterday? If yes, then it is an association dream.
  • Where does it take place? What does that place remind you of? Does it have any special significance to you? How did that place make you feel emotionally? Is it a safe and loving or a dangerous and threatening place for you?
  • Can you quickly summarize the dream? Do not reorganize the dream to make it make sense!
  • Focus on the major characters – who do they remind you of? What feelings did they give you? What part of yourself is in that person? The dream is about you, not the other person, so do not try to apply your dream to someone else.
  • Look for symbolism. Do you have any idea what the symbols mean?
  • How does this impact your personal growth?
  • What spiritual potential of yours might the dream be about?

For a dream to be from Allah:

  • Agree with Scripture: scripture forbids many kinds of spiritism, including sorcery and consulting psychics (Tawrat, Leviticus 19:31). If Allah uses symbols, He chooses them based on what they mean to you. Biblical symbols often point to a dream coming from Allah.
  • Carry the character of Allah and fit His personality: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (Injil, 2 Timothy 7:1)
  • Be truthful, accurate
  • Bear good fruit: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Injil, Galatians 5:22–23)
  • Point to Allah. In the Tawrat, Deuteronomy 13 and 18, God gives keys to recognizing true and false revelation.
  • Be full of color and light. Dreams from God may be bright, full of color, bring hope, accompanied by a sense of peace and wonder, and highlight an aspect of God’s character.

  1. lately I have been doubting my beliefs, I have been seeing what my people are doing around the world. last week I had a dream that I saw a man on the cross and looked at me and said “accept me”. He then told me that he died on the cross not because he is weak but because of his love. He died on that cross to save all humans, He told me to believe in what he has done. Then I wake up, I don’t understand, I am afraid to tell this dream to anyone. What does this mean.

  2. Why do we have dreams and aren’t able to know the meaning? It’s not always possible to get it interpreted. Does it matter if we know or not know the meaning of the dream? I had a lot of dreams of a man wearing white sitting on the throne and having authority.

    1. Gibril, thanks for your questions. Often we do not have the immediate meaning of the dream because it is given in the form of an enigma, and needs the sacred writings to be unveiled. Allah speaks to us through dreams and in this way also encourages us to research and study his words to understand His divine will and to grow in faith. This man dressed in white from your dreams is Isa Al-Masih (may His peace be upon us) and he himself said: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. “- Injil, Matthew 7: 7-8. Allah will never leave you unanswered, ask Him for wisdom and search with faith.May Allah bless your life greatly.

  3. A lady that i have never seen touched my head, blew on me and read something, but appeared to be recited in reverse. When I realised I moved away, she smiled and said would you like to see my Jinns? I was trapped, I could not move. Then a man in white garment appeared shining like the sun, the lady was so afraid, then he touched me and I was free, he told her he is mine I have saved him with my blood. Then I woke up.

    1. Thank you for writing to us, Shaddan. The Injil tells us about who has the power to scare away all evil and the jinn cannot resist his presence. He is Isa Al-Masih (may his peace be upon us) and he was the one you saw. These are some examples of situations where he expelled the jinn: “Now he was casting out a demon that was mute. When the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke, and the people marveled.” – Injil, Luke 11:14. “That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick.” – Injil, Matthew 8:16. Isa has the power to free anyone from evil spirits and physical and spiritual suffering. Your dream is an invitation to know and trust him and what he can do for you. He loves you and gave his blood for you. I advise you to read the Injil to learn more. May Allah always protect and bless you.

  4. I saw a man in white garment in dream come in our home with many angles with him outside home we dinner together and spend time he said I am coming soon to judge the world, be ready.

    1. Shahzad, thanks for writing to us. The one you saw is Isa Al-Masih (may his peace be upon us) and receiving his visit in a dream is a sign of peace, joy and good news. He wants to alert you abour his return for Judgment Day, as he said: “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. ” – Injil, Revelation 22: 12-13. I invite you to research about him and spend time reading the Injil to learn about his teachings and instructions on the Day of Judgment. May Allah bless you and protect you always.

  5. رأيت في منامي أنا بعض أصابعي مقطوعة علما اني مريضة منذ فترة طويلة وكنت أصرخ لماذا يا رب لماذا يا الله لقد تعذبت كثيرا بالعلم بانني أومن بالقضاء والقدر ولكنني كنت اتساءل لماذا وفجأة ظهر رجل يشع وجهه بالنور ويلبس ثياب بيضاء جميلة وقال لي لا يهمك أتيت لاشفيك فمد يده وعادة اصابعي كما كانت وشفيت من مرضي وقال لي أنا هو القيامة والحياة اتبعني ثم استيقضت من النوم أحس بنشاط كبير وكأن الحلم حقيقة ماتفسير الحلم

    1. شكراً لمشاركة حلمك معنا. من رأيته باللباس الأبيض ويشع بالنور هو سيدنا عيسى المسيح (سلامه علينا) وقد ظهر لك في حلمك ليخبرك أنه معك وأنه الوحيد الذي قادر أن يشفيكِ من كل أمراضك الجسدية والروحية، لقد تكلم معك بآية من الانجيل “”قَالَ لَهَا يَسُوعُ أَنَا هُوَ الْقِيَامَةُ وَالْحَيَاةُ. مَنْ آمَنَ بِي وَلَوْ مَاتَ فَسَيَحْيَا” (يوحنا 11: 25). إن كنت ترغبين بمعرفته أكثر يمكنك قراءة الانجيل ونحن سنكون سعداء بمساعدتك في ذلك. بارك الله بك.

  6. In my dream I saw my self climbing a mountain and then I look down and I see the snakes filling the land, the snakes were following me I was terrified and don’t know what to do, I started running but I got tired, then I saw a man calling me saying don’t be afraid, then he came down and start crushing the snakes heads with his foot, his white robe became full of blood, then he carried me to the top. I woke up.

    1. Jamil, thanks for writing to us. The one you saw in the dream is Isa Al-Masih (may His peace be upon us) and you have received a representation of what He really did for you. Climbing the mountain is like our journey of faith in this world towards heaven and eternal life, but the serpents represent the evil that tries to attack and destroy, as revealed in the Injil: “And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world — he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. ” – Injil, Revelation 12: 9. Isa soiled his robes with blood so that he could step on the snake and free you from danger, just as it is written that he made a great sacrifice and when he returns to Judgment Day he will end up with that snake forever: “…and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur.” – Injil, Revelation 20:10. I encourage you to search for him, his sacrifice and the signs of his coming on the Injil. May Allah always bless and protect you.

      أخي العزيز، هل يقول القرآن بتحريف الكتاب المقدس؟ للأسف لا يقول ذلك أبدا. فالله ليس بالإله الضعيف (حاشا) حتى لا يستطيع أن يحمي كتبه وكلمته من التحريف والتشويه. فإذا كنت تؤمن بإله ضعيف لا يستطيع حماية كلمته فعليك مراجعة أيمانك.
      لا يمكن أن تحرف كلمة الله، وهذا ما يثبته الكتاب المقدس نفسه والقرآن. أرجو منك قراءة المقالات المتعلقة بالكتاب المقدس في هذا الموقع.
      صلاتي ودعائي أن يباركك الله تعالى ويقودك للحق الكامل.

  9. حلمت بان هنالك اناس يحملون الكعبة ويجوبون بها في الارض وكان ستار الكعبة عن صور للجن والناس يتعبدون للجن والشيطان وبعد ذالك اذكر اتى انفجار غريب فجر كل شيء وحتى الكعبة وكنت احاول ان اخرج من هذا المكان الذي تفجير وكنت مغطاة بالدم، وبعدها جاء رجل يلبس ثوب أبيض وأنقذني ولمسني وشفاني وصارت ملابسي بيضاء طاهرة ثم قال لي أنا هو الصراط المستقيم اتبعيني. ما هو تفسير هذا الحلم هل سيء ام جيد؟

    1. نشكرك لمشاركة حلمك معنا يا صفية. لقد ظهر لك عيسى المسيح (سلامه علينا)بالثوب الأبيض وهو اقتبس آية من الانجيل تقول “قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: أَنَا هُوَ الطَّرِيقُ وَالْحَقُّ وَالْحَيَاةُ. لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يَأْتِي إِلَى الآبِ إِلاَّ بِي” (يوحنا 14: 6). ورؤية عيسى المسيح (سلامه علينا) تبعث الطمأنينة و السلام وهو حلم جيد بالطبع. يمكننا مساعدتك بالتعرف عليه من خلال قراءة المقالات عن تعاليمه ومعجزاته في موقعنا هذا. بارك الله بك
