I love a friend and I want to marry him so I did istikhara to recite dua-dawood A.S and saw these dreams.
Day1-Me and my friend were fully tied up together with some strong rope or chain.One of us had the lock around neck and other had the key of that lock around the neck.The lock and key were like chain dollar.One of us took the key and opened the lock.We cooperatively helped each other to open the lock.
Day6-a very beautiful looking young boy came to me and took both my hands and said my hands are not beautiful it has so many faults and has became dry and I need to apply oil to my hands then he said he could see the reflection of both my ears between my lips and it looked very beautiful. And my mouth looks beautiful from inside.
Sir I don’t understand what does applying oil to hands means. Does it means am not good enough and need to change myself?
Assalamu `Alaykum sister
Day 1: Tying up symbolizes worries, troubles and concerns. But together you have the key and the lock to free yourselves from these worries. And in the dream you removed the worries together. Mashaa Allah that is an excellent dream and a good indication for your istikhara. If you woke up happy and relieved then it is definitely a good sign.
Day 6: Opening of the palms of both hands symbolizes charity. Lips means friendship that you depend upon. Ears represent the spouse. So ears reflecting inside the lips indicates that your spouse is hidden within your friendship.
It seems that the beautiful young boy who you did not know, can be a holy man who is showing you that you should improve your good work and charity and that your spouse is hidden within your friendship. The oil is a symbol of good praises.
For istikhara it is always good to take the first indication if it is clear and no need to repeat it. It seems that from the first day you had a good sign Hamdulillah. May Allah bless you.
And Allah and His Prophet know best.
