Dream interpretation is mentioned in the Qur’an and was regularly practiced by the Prophet (Ṣallā Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), himself.
Consequently, there is a real need to understand this subject, especially, considering that humans spend about a third of their lives sleeping.
Islamic Concept of Dreams
Aboo Hurayrah narrated that Allah’s Messenger (Ṣallā Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said : “There are three types of dreams : a righteous dream which is glad tidings from Allah; the dream which causes sadness is from satan; and a dream from the ramblings of the mind.”
Anas bin Malik رضي الله عنه narrated that Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “A good dream (that comes true) of a righteous man is one of forty-six parts of prophet hood.” [Sahih al-Bukhari]
Abu Sa‘id Al-Khudri رضي الله عنه narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “If anyone of you sees a dream that he likes, then it is from Allah, and he should thank Allah for it and narrate it to others; but if he sees something else, i.e., a dream that he dislikes, then it is from Satan, and he should seek refuge with Allah from its evil, and he should not mention it to anybody, for it will not harm him.” [Sahih Muslim]
