Question ID: 1781 Category: Interpretation of Dreams

Assalamualaikum, had a question about a dream I was hoping you could answer. I almost never have dreams, but had one recently after which I felt a bit disturbed. In the dream, I was asked by someone to race down a building against 3 other people over a course of three days. The building is made of glass, the time is late at night and we have to climb on the outside of the building so I am afraid of falling down the whole time. The winner will receive a monetary reward. The person who is asking us to do this also asks us to insult each other but I refuse. I begin climbing down and pull ahead in this race to the bottom. The other 3 climb slowly, but they are together and seem happy while I feel anxious. The dream ends near the end of the second day.

Of note, I have a 3 day exam coming up in 2 months which is important for my job so not sure if this is a meaningless dream from stress or there is something more to it. Also possibly relevant, my wife is in a different country and the immigration process has taken about 2 years so far with probably another year until she gets her interview insha'Allah. Would appreciate some clarification, jazakallah.

بسم اللہ الرحمٰن الرحیم

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

It is a meaningless dream, ignore it. Instead, focus on your future and keep working hard. May the Almighty Allah bless you with prosperity and success in both the worlds.

Along with daily prayers and your routine supplications, you should recite the following as well:

یَا وَھَاب 1. - Recite “Ya-Wahhab” one hundred and eleven times daily. 

آیۃ الکرسی 2 - Make a habit of reciting “Ayat al-Kursi”.

3 حسبنا اللہ ونعم الوکیل نعم المولیٰ و نعم النصیر - Also recite “HasbonAllaho wa Neam al-Wakil, Neam al-Mawla wa Neam al-Naseer.
