Dream: Watch, people dressed in white


Assalamu aleikum,

A3outhu billahi min ashaytan arajeem, bismillahi arahman irahim.

I am writing on behalf of my aunt. My aunt has a watch she gave to my grandmother after my grandmother mentioned she liked it. Recently my aunt dreamt she was in a room with people dressed in white. A shiekh who is very dear to her stands up to leave saying he is going to a men’s hadrah, “hadrat rijal.” At that point my aunt turns to the side and sees a “beautiful” little boy swho is also dressed in white. She asked his name and he said “Muhammad.” Her sheikh, having not reached the door to leave yet, comes back to where she is sitting and shows her his wrist. On his wrist is the watch she to my grandmother (in living world, not dream world).

Your assistance deciphering the dream is greatly appreciated.

Salamu aleikum


wa `alaykum salam,

Hadrat rijal
means the Shaykh is going to attend the real Hadrah, done by saints, in the Divine Presence. That is an indication to your aunt that she has adopted the Sunnah of the Prophet (s)  in giving up what is most dear to herself for the love of your grandmother and this is among the most rewarded of deeds, and will lead her to the station of ‘manhood’ which in Sufi terminology is not gender specific, but means to defeat one’s lower self and attain spiritual maturity.

W ‘Allahu `alam,
