Dream: Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and my right hand


salam, I had a dream that Mawlana Shaykh Nazim visited my aunt’s house and I made a plate of dinner for them. I went and gave it to them, but I did not serve the rest of the family who was sitting with them. Mawlana then finished one glass of water and asked for another one. When I gave them the glass with my right hand, they said to me “yes thats the way you should give it, with your right hand”.


audhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem,

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,

wa `alaykum salam,

Insha-Allah, Mawlana is teaching you adab (etiquette).  Blessings are in following the sunnah of the Prophet (s), using the right hand for eating, drinking, serving, receiving, etc.

In Sahih Muslim:  Book 23, Number 5010:

Salim, on the authority of his father, reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “None of you should eat with his left hand and drink with that (left hand), for the Satan eats with left hand and drinks with that (hand)”. Nafi` has made this addition in that: “Do not take up anything with that (left hand) and do not give anything with that” ; and in the narration transmitted on the authority of Abu Tahir there is a slight variation of wording.
