I was stood on my stairs at home wearing a headscarf (as i did at the time). At the bottom was my husband, two other male murids and MSH. I reached out for MSH hand and placed it on my heart and he said “you must always wear a headscarf, it is very important.”
Please can you tell me if it is to be taken literally? I have tried to wear a headscarf several times (for a few weeks/ months) and always fail miserably by looking absolutely terrible (tense, pale, ugly and without confidence), thereby really upsetting my husband (he would be very happy for me to cover my head but wants me to look good and not repelling!!) This has made me wonder whether the dream does not mean a physical protection but something else? Please could you explain the meaning of this dream?
For now try to take the dream literally as it is so straightforward, and your reward is proportionate to the difficulties you experience. Let your husband get you a fine headscarf from time to time so that you can always look your best. If certain national styles do not suit you, try others. Something for the sake of Allah is better than nothing at all, is what Mawlana is telling you.
