Dream: heard the Qur’aan being recited

Fatwaa ID: 098


As Salaamualiakum

Please could you kindly assist me with the interpretation of the following dream(s).

  • A few months ago, I had a dream and heard the Quranic verse receited in Arabic on ‘Establishment of Salaah and Payment of Zakaah.’ At the time my Zakaah was not fully paid and my Salaah was not in order
  • I have since tried to improve on these areas.
  • After a few weeks I had another dream, where I heard Arabic verses recited in a melodious tone, I was not familiar with these verses and did not understand their meaning. These verses may or may not have been from the Quran; or may simply have been in Arabic. I am not sure.
  • Some weeks later, I fell asleep on the middle of my bed in the day; and dreamt that the Quran Mushaf was on my bed (in the place where I had fallen asleep) The Quran was opened to Surah Yaseen and I read the first few verses silently in my dream.
  • This morning after Fajr salaah:
    •  I fell asleep and dreamt that I was in Masjid-un-Nabawi in Medina 
    •  I am not sure how I knew it was Medina, but recognised the Red Musallah and Golden Quran Racks, I seemed to know I was there.
    • There was an old lady sitting next to me with a burkah, smiling and trying to communicate and be friendly.
    • I stood up to fetch a Quran from the golden racks in the Masjid, the Qurans had Green and Red Covers.
    • I then sat down, placed the Quran in-front of me on the Musallah and opened it  to Surah Al Fatihah to begin reading it. I am not sure if I actually read the Surah or not before the dream ended/ I woke up.

Please could you kindly advise if there is any meaning to these dreams, since I keep having these dreams; or are they simply random? I have been trying to be more concious of the Quran and Islam recently, includng listening to and reciting the Quran, however, I do this from my phone and not the Book?

If you are not able to advise, please let me know where I may be able to have these dreams interpreted bya reliable source.



In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

[198] فصل: من قرأ القرآن، أو شيئا من الكتب التي يعتقد فيها: فانظر فإن كانت آيات رحمة فبشره، وإن كانت تخويفا فحذره، وإن لم يعرف ما كانت فذلك خير وفائدة. خصوصا إن كان بصوت مليح، والناس يستمعون، ويتلذذون به: فإنه يدل على المنزلة، والذيت الحسن.
