Charging for dream interpretation

Fatwaa ID: 1488

Question:
Salam alaykum. I had it [dream] interpreted by a scholar in England. He did charge a small fee. Is it permissible to pay a small fee to have dreams interpreted ?

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

An oneirocritic is permitted to charge a fee for the service he is providing, i.e., interpreting of dreams. A dreamer may opt for his services and pay the fees. That is permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
