Often sees her deceased mother and grandmother in dreams
Fatwa No: 91301

Question

I dream about my deceased mother often and just recently I been dreaming about my deceased grandmother could you please guide me or inform me what to do so I stop having these dreams?

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 is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

We have already issued Fatwa 83663 about what a person should do when he sees bad dreams or nightmares. It should be mentioned that one cannot rely on a dream in determining what will happen in the future, because seeing dead people in a dream could mean other things than what they really appear to be. Ibn Hajar may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said: 'Interpretation of dreams is explaining the core of a dream by its outside appearances.'

We are sorry not to interpret your dream as Islamweb is not specialized in interpreting dreams; rather it is specialized in issuing Fataawa (religious rulings). However, you may ask trustworthy Shaykhs specialized in interpreting dreams, and you may visit sites which are specialized in interpreting dreams.

Allaah Knows best.
