Dream: Darkness and Kafn


Night 1: I saw darkness engulfing the sky and someone says it’s the end of the world and I am so worried and ashamed that I have done nothing with which I can face my Lord with pride…I am very distressed.
Night 2: My mother (she is crying) hand me a bag with my kafn and some flowers saying that when the flower wilts the petals will fall and my dad will bring the kafn bag for me when I need it.

The two dreams are interrelated and show that you are at a turning point in your spiritual life.

The first dream teachs you to apply the principle of muhasabah, self-accounting, everyday to purify your inner self. Umar ibn al-Khattab (raḍiy-Allāhu ‘anhu) said:

Judge yourselves before you are judged; and weigh your actions in the balance before they are weighed; When you are brought to account tomorrow, it will be much easier for you if you have already brought yourself to account today…” [Ahmad and Abu Nu`aym]

The second dream points to the spiritual station of the death of the ego: to die before you die as the Prophet (ṣall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said, “If you want to see someone who died before he died, look at Abu Bakr as-Siddiq.”

Your parents in the dream represent the Murshid al Kamil who will guide you to reach your spiritual reality in the Divine Presence.

And Allah knows best.
