My name is Ali, and I am 20 years old. I grew up in Pakistan in a family that values Islam and performs its obligatory duties, such as praying five times a day, working in da’wa, fasting, taking care of the poor, paying Zakat, etc. I practiced my religion fanatically, refusing even to speak with non-Muslims, for they were infidels, and I didn’t want to lose my eternal life for associating with them.

I had two dreams in which I saw a Man in White. The first dream came to me when I was eight years old. I saw Allah in my dream. God appeared to me in white, shining with bright light. I couldn’t see His face clearly, but I could see his long white beard. Then Allah spoke to me. I don’t remember the conversation, but I remember how happy I was, filled with peace in His presence. At the same time I felt His greatness.

When I was 18 years old, I had another dream of the same Man in White. I was with Him on a battlefield with 10 or 12 men fighting against a dragon with an army. The warfare was terrible, but at the end the Man in White defeated the dragon and the enemies, and they were cast out. I had the privilege of sitting with Him and spend time talking and learning from Him. I was so incredibly happy to be at His side that I cannot describe my feelings. I was filled with peace and joy like I had never experienced before.

When I woke up, I wanted to understand my dream. I asked various people what it meant, but no one gave me a satisfying answer. I started searching the Internet, and I found an article on your website explaining that we can see Allah in our dreams. I wrote to you for information: who was that Man in White? Who was that dragon? Why were they at war? Why had I been shown this dream? What did it mean?

The answers you sent back were marvelous. You sent me some verses from the Injil describing exactly what I had seen in my dream. I was stunned! “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time” (Rev. 12: 7-12).

After reading the verses, I was shocked. This was from the Injil? I thought it had been corrupted. But it described what I had seen in my dream! I could not resist. I wanted to know everything about the Man in White.

I am just beginning my journey to learn about the Man in White. Who is He? Why did I have such a dream? I am thankful for your website that opened my eyes and pushed me to study and know more.
