Ive had a few dreams of my brother recently, whos not religious. Im talking about tariqa in all of them and he is interested.
In one, after we were talking, we watched a film. There was a girl lying down and every few seconds she’d say “its wonderful”
then everything went dark, and we’re lying down like in a dark cinema.
the girl turns into a zombie, but carries on saying “its wonderful”. Its an illusion, but it looks like its coming out screen at us.
My brother cant move from fright, and although i know its an illusion, with all the excitement I jump up and get into kung fu stance wanting to beat it up!
everyone seems to be having zombie dreams lately!?
then its an illusion but
wa `alaykum salam,
Girl represents dunya, which is attracting you and your brother represents your higher self, which seeks akhira, and talking to him about tariqah is attracting him away from dunya. Once attracted towards akhira, you are granted to see the reality of this dunya, because as Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani often cites, “this dunya is a corpse and those who run after it are it dogs.” Films are essentially “false advertising” and represent falsehood.
I advise myself first, and then you, if you find it of use, to stop watching late-night movies and rather spend that time sleeping so you may wake up for Qiyam al-layl and doing awrad before Salat al-Fajr.
w ‘Allahu `alam,
