Once Imam Ibn Seerin was sitting to eat his lunch when a woman came and said: “I saw a dream.” Ibn Seerrn replied: “Would you let me eat first, or would you like me to stop and listen to your dream?” The woman said: “Eat first,” and she sat waiting for him. During the course of his meal, Ibn Seertn said to the woman: ”Tell me your dream.” The woman said: “I saw the moon merging in Alcyone.” (The brightest star of the constellation Taurus, arb. Thuraya. See Alcyone.) The woman continued: “A voice then said to me: ‘Go to Ibn Seerin, and tell him your dream.’” Ibn Seerin suddenly shook, and said to the woman: “Tell me how did you see it?” The woman repeated her dream, and Ibn Seerin’s face became grim. His sister who was then sitting with him at the table said: ”What disturbed you, 0 my brother?” He replied: “This woman is claiming that I will die in seven days.” On the seventh day, Ibn Seerin was buried.
Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal once saw God Almighty in a dream and asked Him: “Lord, how do Thy near ones get to that station?” God Almighty answered: “Through reciting My words.” Ahmad Ibn Hanbal then asked: “With understanding, or without understanding?”
God Almighty answered: “0 Ahmad, both with and without understanding them.” • A man saw himself in a dream falling down from a high altitude. When he woke up, he said to himself: “I will avoid going out of my house or seeing people for a while.” During the middle of the afternoon of that same day, a close friend came to see him and called him from downstairs. When the man stood up to look through the window, the shutters broke, and he fell with them.
A man came to Abu Bakr, God be pleased with him, and said:” I was given seventy leaves in my dream last night.” Abu Bakr replied: “It means that you will be flogged seventy times.” The interpretation came true within a short time when he had to face such a public chastisement for a sin he committed. Within that same year, the man came to Abu Bakr and said: “I saw that same dream again.” Abu Bakr replied: “You will receive seventy thousand Dirhams.” The man said: “0 Imam of the Muslims! Last year when I told you the same dream, you said that I will be flogged, and it took place, and this year you interpreted the dream to mean that I will receive seventy thousand Dirhams!” Abu Bakr replied: “0 man, last year when you came to see me, the trees were shedding their leaves, and this year you are telling me the dream at the time when the trees are blooming with new blossoms.” Shortly after that, the man received seventy thousand Dirhams from a business deal.
Abdu-Rahman AI-Salmi related that God’s Prophet, upon whom be peace, united between Abu Bakr AI-Siddi:q and Salman Al-Farisi, God be pleased with them both. One night Salman saw a dream in which Abu Bakr was involved. Salman kept his dream to himself and distanced himself from Abu Bakr, because of it. One day Abu Bakr saw Salman and said to him: “My dear brother, why have you abandoned me?” Salman replied: “I saw your hand-tied to your neck in a dream, and I was apprehensive of it.” Abu Bakr replied: “God is the greatest. It means that my hand is tied to spare it from wrongdoing.” Salman then related his dream to God’s Prophet, upon whom be peace, and added Abu Bakr’s interpretation. God’s Prophet (uwbp) confirmed the meaning and praised Abu Bakr’s good interpretation.
A woman came to God’s Prophet, upon whom be peace, and said: “0 Messenger of God, I saw in a dream that the central pillar which supports the ceiling of my house broke, and the ceiling caved in.” God’s Prophet (uwbp) replied: “Your husband will return to his home from a journey.” Soon, the husband returned home from a business trip, and the wife was happy. While the husband is in town, the woman saw the same dream again, and she sought to ask God’s Prophet (uwbp) about it. When she did not find him, Abu Bakr was present, so she told him the dream, and he replied: ”Your husband will soon die.” In the first interpretation of the above dream, the husband was absent, while in the second dream, he was present. The conditions changed, and the meaning also changed.
