 The interpretation of a dream means trying to explain and
 make sense of a dream. The following article will, I hope,
 give us a greater understanding of dreams and what they
                           imply.

               Comments by Hadhrat Danyaal alaihis salaam
Hadhrat Danyaal alaihis salaam reports that dreams are in reality based on two
things:
1. There are those dreams that make us aware of the reality of circumstances.
2. There are those dreams that give us the results of any of the tasks that have
been undertaken.
Then these two types of dreams branch into another four:
1. Dreams in which orders are given to perform certain tasks
2. Dreams in which caution is given to refrain from something
3. Frightening Dreams (Dreams in which the person is given a scare)
4. Dreams Of Glad Tidings (Dreams in which good news is related)

                      Reasons Why People Forget Dreams
Hadhrat Danyaal alaihis salaam reports that there are four reasons why a person
forgets dreams. They are:
1. Excessive sins
2. Various actions
3. Weak intentions and beliefs
4. Change in conditions
Without doubt, under these circumstances a person will forget his dream.

                         Time for Asking Interpretation
Hadhrat Danyaal Alaihas Salaam relates that if a person asks for an
interpretation of a dream in the time between morning and noon, he will be
given a good and prosperous interpretation. If he was to ask after noon, he will
be given an evil and troubling interpretation. He has also said that it is not
permissible to ask for interpretation of dreams during dawn, sunset, cloudy and
rainy days.

                                   Seeing Allah
Hadhrat Danyaal alaihis salaam relates that if a Mu’min was to see Allah
Ta’ala in his dream unequalled and incomparable, as is related in the verses of
the Qur’aan and in the Ahaadith of Our Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam, he
will be blessed with the magnificent sight of Allah Ta’ala and his needs will
also be fulfilled.
If a person was to see a dream in the manner that he was standing before Allah
Ta’ala, and that Allah Ta’ala was watching him, the dream will give proof of
his capability, reformation (to improve oneself) and spiritual well being. He
will be chosen for forgiveness, and if he is sinful he will repent.

                                        Heart
Hadhrat Imaam Karmaani rahmatullahi alaihe states that if a person within his
dream were to feel pain in his heart, the interpretation is that his wealth will
increase. But if he were to see that the eyes of his heart were open, this is a sign
that the person is insatiable (greedy) in matters of the world and faith. If he
were to see his heart bleeding the interpretation will mean that he will seek
forgiveness for his sins and will turn towards Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala.
If a person were to see bile coming out from his heart, the interpretation is that
the person will become ill. Or if he was to see a wound on his heart, it means
that the person will become happy.
If the person were to see pearls pouring from his heart and he was spitting these
pearls out from his mouth, the interpretation is that such a person will become -
may Allah forbid - a Kaafir (non-believer). But if he were to see himself lifting
the pearls from the ground and swallowing them the interpretation is that the
person will become a Muslim (a believer).
