Assalammualaikum, may Allah forever bless you and family and give you, family and Mawlana Sheikh Nazim a long life.
I remember I took my bai’ah last year during your visit in June for the first time. I had a few dreams after which I don’t know what is the meaning.
I had a dream, I was about to take my wudhu’ outside a big wooden door. While waiting for my turn, my heart was telling me to look inside. And I saw Mawlana Sheikh Nazim was there. I was afraid to look at his eyes. I am shy, knowing where I am standing. I am not religious, I just wish to follow the right path.
Then when I was about to take my wudhu’ I turned to my right, and to my surprise, Mawlana Sheikh Nazim was standing next to me, smiling and told me, “Don’t worry my child.” I couldn’t really recall how he said the rest of his words, but he was giving me the sign that he will always be with me.
Another dream I had was, he was giving me a white fabric. There was a big wooden door in front of me, and there was a light that shined so bright.
I don’t know what does it mean. Am I dreaming or was it Syaitan playing trick on my mind while I was sleeping? I wish you could help me with the meaning.
a`udhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem
wa `alaykum salam,
In the first dream you kept good adab with your Shaykh, not overstepping your bounds. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) came out from the inner area to be at your side on the outside and reassure you of his continuous accompaniment and support. Making wudu here means all your concerns and burdens are being washed away with Mawlana’s baraka. The second dream (also showing the wooden door) with the white light is heavenly knowledge that the Prophet (s) dressed his awliya with. As the Prophet (s) mentioned: I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is the door to it. Insha-Allah you will be dressed with the inner and outer knowledge from your Shaykh’s blessings, and your respect for the door to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. And Allah knows best.
