I’m a murid of Shaykh Nazim and last night I dreamt that my brother and I were talking to Shaykh Nazim and then we heard that Shaykh had passed away and we were saddened but we informed Shaykh Hisham and in the dream the media also found out and many people came to see but when we got to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s bedside Shaykh was lying down as if he had passed away but suddenly he got up and walked away, alive. I remember feeling happy and I think that Shaykh was wearing a black turban.. Then I don’t remember exactly but it was like everybody was searching for Shaykh Nazim but couldn’t find him. Then I woke up. Please can you explain what this dream means? Jazakallah
wa `alaykum salam,
This dream indicates Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani undergoing a spiritual khalwah, in which he was raised to higher levels, which is why he disappeared, and informing the media represents rumors and gossips. Being at his bedside indicates closeness to Mawlana Shaykh. Shaykh Hisham represents Mawlana’s “voice”, addressing the dunya world. The black turban represents Jihad an-Nafs, “Struggle Against the Self”, one of the 14 types of Jihad. In this case Mawlana Shaykh has been granted spiritual power to defeat the nafs of all his murids, and Allah knows best.
