Book: Chapters on Dreams (34)    أبواب الرؤیا

Chapter No: 1

Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "As the time draws near, the dreams of a believer will hardly ever fail to come true, and the most truthful of them in dreams will be the one who is truest in speech among them. The dream of a Muslim is a portion among the forty-six portions of Prophet-hood. And dreams are of three types: The righteous dream which is good news from Allah, dreams in which the Satan frightens someone, and dreams about something that has happened to the man himself. So when one of you sees what he dislikes, then he should get up and spit, and not tell any of the people- he said:- and I like the fetters in a dream while I dislike the iron collar." And the interpretation of fetters is being firm in the religion".

Abu Bkar (RA) and 'Umar (RA) were weighed, and Abu Bakr (RA) outweighed ('Umar). Umar (RA) and Uthman (RA) were weighed and Umar (RA) outweighed (Uthman). Then the scale was raised up.'

Narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that a man came to the Prophet ﷺ and said: "I had a dream of a cloud with shade dripping butter and honey. I saw the people scooping it up with their hands, some taking much and some taking little. I saw a rope extending from the sky to the earth. Then I saw you O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ You took hold of it and went up, then a man took hold of it after you do so, then a man took hold of it after him to do so. Then a man took hold of it and it was severed, and then connected for him, and he did so (i.e., went up)." Abu Bakr (RA) said: "May my father and mother be ransomed for you O Apostle of Allah!ﷺ Allow me to interpret it." He said: "Interpret it." so he said: "As for the cloud with its shade, it is Islam. As for what the butter and honey that dropped from it, this is the Quran and its delicateness and sweetness. It means some of them gathered much of the Quran and some of them a little. As for the rope extending from the sky to the earth, it is the truth which you are upon, you clung to it and Allah exalted you. Then another man will take hold of it after you and ascend on it, then after him, another man will take hold of it and ascend on it. Then another [man] will take hold of it but it will break, and then be connected so he will ascend on it. Inform me O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ Am I correct or am I mistaken?" The Prophet ﷺ said: "You are correct in some of it and mistaken in some of it." He (i.e., Abu Bakr) said: "I swear to you by my father and my mother O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ Inform me in what I was mistaken?" The Prophet ﷺ said: "Do not swear."
