Asalam alaikum, I hope that you will be able to help me and my family understand this situation better. A family friend who has just returned from hajj has told my dad that he met their friend named [private] during Hajj in Haram. He said that he even spoke to him, but [private] had passed away some 4-5 years ago. A relative also had seen her son during the time she went for Hajj she said he was in a normal T-shirt. We are very much confused regarding this topic. How is this possible? My understanding was that once we leave this world we cannot return. I look forward to your reply, I apologize if I have been in any way rude. Many thanks.
wa `alaykum salam,
Such visions, like dreams with the same content, are glad tidings because the two Harams or Mecca and Madina are closely connected to the hereafter. So give thanks and let those who saw it try to keep the worshipful state Allah Most High gave them there.
