Question ID: 1435 Category: Interpretation of Dreams
Dream interpretation


I was wondering if you can assist me with dream interpretation.

A few weeks ago, I had a dream the my sister and I were at my mother's home (my sister and I are both married). My sister was just sitting and eating food. I had a baby elephant with me that was trying to take to the basement. The elephant was calm and not resisting. My mom came down from the 2nd floor and was giving me a rope to use to take the elephant down.

Last night, I slept after praying tahajjud and fajr, and I had a dream in which my sister and I were dropping my mom off to her house. My mom left the car. I looked across the street from her house and say 7-8 baby elephants (they were very small, like 12 inches in size) lying in a driveway. I got excited and told my sister to look at the cute little elephants and then I saw a black short cobra slitheren from in between the elephants. I asked my sister to turn the car around and saw the snake slithering away across the road. My mom wasn't there anymore, she was inside the house already. We passed by the baby elephants again and I started wondering if they are sleeping or dead. And then I woke up all of a sudden at 6:20am.

My mother said she also recently saw a snake in her dream, and since the past 2-3 weeks she has been having anxiety, fatigue, and a lot of pain in her legs (she has arthritis but this pain is exaggerated).

We are a little scated about what these dreams mean. Your assistance is much appreciated.

Don't be afraid of such dreams, there is nothing to worry about. After having such dreams, recite this prayer:  ’’أَعُوْذُ بِاللّٰهِ مِنْ شَرِّهَا”

If you wake up while having such a dream, simply blow through your mouth three times towards the left side, and recite three times: ’’أعوذ باللّٰہ من الشیطان الرجیم‘‘  and don't mention that dream to people.

عن أبي سعید الخدري رضي اللّٰه عنه أنه سمع النبي صلی اللّٰه علیه وسلم یقول: إذا راٰی أحدکم الرؤیا یحبها، فإنما هي من اللّٰه، فلیحمد اللّٰه علیها، ولیحدِّثْ بما راٰی، وإذا راٰی غیر ذٰلک مما یکره فإنما هي من الشیطان، فلیستعذ من شرها ولا یذکرها لأحد؛ فإنها لا تضره‘‘. (صحیح البخاري، کتاب التعبیر / باب الرؤیا من اللّٰه،: ۶۹۸۵)

 عن أبي قتادة رضي اللّٰه عنه قال: سمعت النبي صلی اللّٰه علیه وسلم یقول: الرؤیا من اللّٰه، والحُلم من الشیطان، فإذا راٰی أحدکم شیئًا

یکرهه فلینفث حین یستیقظ ثلاث مراتٍ، ویتعوذ من شرها فإنها لا تضره‘‘. (صحیح البخاري / باب النفث في الرقیة رقم: ۵۷۴۷)
