Some years ago I went to have a short nap, this was just before we were going to hold zikr. While sleeping, I had a dream in which I felt my soul was soaring (while reciting durood I believe), I felt as though I was very high up, I carried on until I saw ‘myself’, it was a very strange moment.
The other person I saw (me?) was in a large, beautiful room, it felt like Jannah, I was relaxing on a bed, I remember 2 people (I think women) standing on each side, this person (myself?) was surprised that I had reached there, I remember myself, or my duplicate looking down on me, I woke up shortly after this and found myself reciting durood shareef.
Would you be able to shed any light on this matter.
wa `alaykum salam,
This other ‘you’ in Paradise is your spiritual reality, or zawj. You encountered your real self on the ‘other side’. Alhamdulillah that is a very blessed experience, treasure it and know it is good tidings of Paradise in-sha-Allah. Keep the two important women in your life your mother and your wife, they are keeping you and Allah knows best.
