About dream interpretations


salam shaykh

Is it true that a dream comes true only when it is be interpreted by a shaykh or mu’abbir? I read ones that birds carry the dream with their feet and when it is interpreted by shaykh the bird let it off.

2) Is it true that the dreamer may not interpret his dream more then once? Some people ask one shaykh to interpreted his dream and he goes again to another shaykh to interpret the same dream, so compare.

3) Can we normal people with no level of wisdom or `ilm tafsir ahlam check online websites of Nablusi and ibn Sireen to interpret over own dreams?

Thank u shaykh for giving us this website eshayk.


wa `alaykum salam,

1) yes.

2) It is dangerous to one’s `itiqad in the interpreter to interpret the dream more than once.

3) Shaykh Hisham (q) has said many times, from the teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) and Grandshaykh `Abdullah Daghestani (q) that the power of correct dream interpretation is under the direction of the Qutb of the  spiritual ‘century’ in which you live. Each Qutb has a different tajalli, and therefore the interpretation under the tajalli that Ibn Sirin was under in his time may not apply today at all.  Thus the interpreter must be trained under the guidance of a Shaykh connected to the Qutb of his time under his own century’s tajalli. So while the general interpretation provided by such books/websites may be correct, a specific dream it may need to be interpreted under the tajalli of the dreamer’s spiritual ‘century’.
