News: Dream Interpretation Sensitivity

Dream interpretation requires vast knowledge, clear perception, and sensitivity. Such knowledge must be based on the fundamentals of one’s religion, inner spiritual values, moral and cultural traditions. The beginner in this field must know that there are two types of dreams: one type that comes from God Almighty, and the second type comes from satan. What is good comes from God Almighty, which is a type of revelation that comes to a righteous person and carries either glad tidings or warnings. Such dreams also cause one’s heart to reflect upon his actions and to beware of heedlessness. On the other hand, they could be a reprimand for an ignoble act one is pondering, or an act one may mistakenly think that is the correct thing to do, or a new friendship that could lead him to hell-fire, or a clarification concerning his treatment of his family and friends and about his business dealings, or they may bring spiritual guidance, etcetera. This is the type of dream which is referred to in God’s Prophet’s sayings:

“A true dream represents one of forty-six branches of a prophecy.”

Both religious and irreligious people may see a true dream that could come true. The second type of dream connotes deception, cunningness, contriving, jealousy, or a scare, causes pain, depicts any type of eavesdropping, engaging in mundane conversation, the call of one’s mind and desires, or imagination, or occur after eating a heavy late meal or even going to bed hungry, etcetera. This type of dream comes from satan. God’s Prophet (PBUH) has said

‘As time draws nearer to the conclusion of this world, dreams will become confused. The truest of dreams are those of a truthful person. Thus, if one sees a dream that he dislikes, he should tell no one about it, and he should immediately leave his bed and perform his prayers.”

He (PBUH) also said, “The best of ropes is steadfastness to one’s religious life.”

Some interpreters divide dreams into three categories

  1. A good dream which is a glad tiding from God Almighty
  2. A dream that rises from one’s desires and inclinations
  3. A distressful dream that is prompted by satan

As a consequence of such dreams, one may wake up either happy or afraid. Some dreams cause elation, while others cause shivers. In fact, human frailty is subject to such involuntary acts of infringement upon its so-called ‘privacy’. Each dream connotes meanings that relate to one’s own character, actions, thoughts, intentions, expectations, qualities, associations, dealings, and environment. However, one may wake up in fear from his dream, though it signifies joy and exaltation, or one may wake up happy, though his dream connotes sorrow and distress.
