Question: A woman left Islam and became a Christian. Some of her relatives say that in dreams they see about her, she looks well and happy. If we see good dreams about such people, what is the meaning?
Answer: Never be beguiled by dreams. Dreams can be good and bad. Dreams can be from Allah Ta’ala, from the Malaaikah and also from Iblees. Dreams can also be from our nafs and the accord with the corruption of our souls.
Sometimes a bad dream has a good meaning. But only an expert in this intuitive knowledge can present a correct interpretation. As far as we are concerned, if a dream is in conflict with the Shariah, then set it aside and do not follow the dream no matter how good it appears. Our criterion is always the Shariah. For the one who had left Islam, just make dua that Allah Ta’ala grants her good hidaayat to return to the fold of Islam.
If in a dream someone sees the murtaddhah sitting on the Arsh of Allah Ta’ala, then too do not be fooled. If you see in a dream she is walking happily in Jannat, then too do not become confused. The barometer is always the Shariah. The kaafir is doomed for everlasting perdition in Jahannam as far as the Law of the Shariah (the Qur’aan and Hadith) states. What exactly Allah Ta’ala will do in the Aakhirah, is His Prerogative. If He so wishes, He will send to Jannat any kaafir. No one can question the Divine Authority. Stating this fact, the Qur’aan Majeed says that if Allah Ta’ala wants to forgive the munaafiqeen, He can and will do so. There is no one to question this and no one can do anything about the Divine Prerogative.
But, we are commanded by Allah Azza Wa Jal to submit and follow only His Shariah, hence we say that kuffaar are doomed for everlasting perdition and ruin in Jahannam – forever and forever.
