A vision is from Allah and a dream is from Shaytan – Permanent Committee

Q 12: I see in a dream that i have a car accident or that one of my relatives is killed (may Allah forbid). i usually have this dream after Fajr (dawn) prayer. Please give me some insight regarding this matter.

A: This dream is from Satan and you have to spit three times to your left and seek refuge in Allah from Satan and what you have seen once you wake up. You should then turn on your other side and this dream will not harm you. You should not tell anyone about it, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, “A good dream is from Allah and a bad dream is from Satan.

Anyone who sees something (in a dream) that they hate, should spit to their left three times and seek refuge with Allah three times from the evil of Satan and of what they have seen. Then they should turn on the other side and it will not harm them. They should tell no one about it.”

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
