My father passed away 7 months ago. My mom’s been having dreams lately that she is lost and can’t find her way. She sees that my dad is waiting for her but she can’t find her way. A man offers her a ride but his car is in bad shape (rainwater leaking into car) which is why she is hesitant in taking the ride. Also she notices that her under-garment (petticoat) is torn from behind. Last night she dreamt that she is lost and she can’t recall any of her son’s phone numbers -she wants to call them for help.
My mother comes from a Sufi family and has taken bayah with a Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi shaikh. She is a pious person and performs her religious duties thoroughly. Therefore, we are perplexed as to why she is having these kinds of dreams. Kindly interpret.
Thanks for your time and effort.

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem:
wa `alaykum salam,
Good tidings that your father is seen in dreams after his passing, showing his spirit is free in the grave. Your mother needs a vehicle to move forward in her spiritual life. The rain leaking shows the sadness of being away from your father, but also the heavenly knowledge found on the tariqa, spiritual way (Sura Jinn 72:16). Keep on the Naqshbandi dhikr and connection to your shaykh. And Allah knows best.
