Aslamulaikum Mufti Saab,
I saw a horrible dream last night. It was that I was about to hang for execution. I was in a queue and waiting for my turn and I was too afraid and shivering and once my turn come I woke up. Please advice me what should I read and what is the tabeer of this type of dream.
الجواب وباللہ التوفیق
Scary dreams are from shaitan to instill fear in people. There is no reason to be fearful or scared. It has been mentioned in a hadith of Rasulullah Sallallaho 'Alyhi Wasallam that in these situations, upon being awakened, one should recite Surah al-Falaq and Surah an-Naas and perform the action as if one is clearing their throat and spitting, towards their left side. Then one should lie on their right side and go back to sleep. There is no reason to be fearful.
