Question

Is it lawful to depend on visions and dreams when deriving rulings?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.

It is impermissible to depend on visions in issuing religious rulings because dreams are not one of the sources of legislation in Islam.

Allaah Knows best.
