Dream: Musa (as) and Iblis


A salaamu aleykum wa rahmatulah,

A few weeks ago I had a dream

I saw myself running in a place searching for someone. Then suddenly I see Musa (as) and it seems that he just killed the person I was looking for and that person was actually Iblis but before he became defiant towards Allah swa…and I was asking Musa (as) why…why did u kill him? (In a way I felt pity towards Iblis) he said there was no other choice I had to do it. Then the next image I see that I have the staff of Musa (as) and I lean on it to not fall on the ground in very sorrowful way.

I find this disturbing because I had the feeling that I’m taking pity on Iblis where he is a plain enemy…pls shaykh would you help me understand this dream?

Jazakum Allah Khayran



wa `alaykum salam,

That is a blessed dream, alhamdulillah to see any Nabi (s) or Sahabi or wali is a blessing. It was your ego sorrowful to see Iblis within you destroyed by Sayyidina Musa’s (as) immense power. The `asaa of Musa (as) represents the reality behind Moses’s power, for the stick was the spiritual support of Sayyidina Muhammad (s).

But in reality, another interpretation is that you were sad to see Iblis destroyed before he could bring to fruition Allah’s Plan, which is through him, the arch-enemy of mankind, to cause mankind to fight him, build up their spiritual powers and thereby become deserving the title of Khalifatullah. Since Sayyidina Musa (as) usually views things from the outer perspective (zhahir), he killed Iblis as soon as possible in order to prevent his harm. While Khidr (as), might have waited and left him to do Allah’s Plan through him, thereby bringing about the need for prophets and messengers and thus a cause for the coming to earth of the Master of Messengers, Sayyidina Muhammad (s), through whose power Iblis and his agents will be totally routed.

And Allah knows best.
