My dream was this, several old friends I had nearly forgotten about returned to my life and were very kind. We got along very well and they arranged to hold a party. I went to the party and it was wonderful, until they turned on me and all pulled out knives. They began killing the other people and I had to fight them. I tried to reason with them, put they were so awash in hatred and spite they wouldn’t listen. I killed them all, but the dream didn’t end. They would return as specters on fire, screaming at me about how much they hated me.
wa `alaykum salam,
Alhamdulillah, that is a very good dream because it signifies you fighting your four spiritual enemies, as we are informed by our mashaykh: nafs (ego), dunya (love of this world), hawa (lustful desires) and shaytan. They hate you because you are fighting them very hard by your persistence on the Straight Path, and that is the Jihad al-akbar. Congratulations and keep to what you know is right.
w ‘Allahu `alam,
