Seeking Interpretation of A Dream about Marriage
Fatwa No: 415549

Question

Asalam Walaikum. I am 25 years old unmarried Muslim girl. I recently had a dream where I am getting engaged to an unmarried man in a blessed house which belongs to my family currently. Since I am unmarried right now I needed help in interpreting this dream. I tried searching online for answers but couldn't find any proper answers. Hence I am writing this question to you. Kindly help.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We do not have knowledge of dream interpretation. You should only consult those who are known for their knowledge of dream interpretation along with truthfulness and religiosity. Scholars have warned against interpreting dreams by referring to dream interpretation books, because the interpretation of a dream differs from one situation to the other and from one person to another. Moreover, this (referring to books) could cause confusion and perplexity to the person who had the dream because of the potentially very different interpretations of his dream.

If you do not find a trustworthy person to interpret your dream, then you are advised to regard it as a good omen and that Allah, The Exalted, may bless you with marriage to this man or another righteous man. So, turn to your Lord and ask Him to facilitate marriage for you.

You are entitled, as per the Sharee‘ah, to look for a husband and seek the help of your close family members and friends in this regard. In fact, it is even permissible for you, as per the Sharee‘ah, to propose to the man whom you wish to marry. We have previously explained that in Fatwa no. 82471, so please refer to it.

Allah Knows best.
