THE ART OF DREAM INTERPRETATION

The Quran and Sunnah are full of discussions regarding dreams. Dreams are a firm part of the human experience. The most famous discussion regarding dream interpretation is vividly portrayed through the life mission of the great Prophet Yusuf (Joseph) 'alayhi'l-sal?m (peace be upon him). Yusuf 'alayhi'l-sal?m (peace be upon him) in fact was strengthened by Allah with the ability to interpret visions. Allah says in the Quran (12:21): “Thus did We establish Yusuf (Joseph) in the land, that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not. And when he [Yusuf (Joseph)] attained his full manhood, We gave him wisdom and knowledge, thus We reward the Muhsinun (doers of good).” Aisha ra?yAll?hu 'anha (may All?h be pleased with her) says, “The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah’s Apostle ?allall?hu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of All?h be upon him) was in the form of visions which came true like bright day light, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him…” Bukhari #3 Ibn Umar ra?yAll?hu 'anhu (may All?h be pleased with him), “Some men amongst the companions of the Prophet were shown in their dreams that the night of Qadr was in the last seven nights of Ramadan. Allah’s Apostle r said, “It seems that all your dreams agree that (the Night of Qadr) is in the last seven nights, and whoever wants to search for it (i.e. the Night of Qadr) should search in the last seven (nights of Ramadan).” Bukhari
