Dreaming of death

Question ID: 25619

Assalamu Alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatuhu,

a.) I had a dream it was pretty confusing, a lot was happening. There were lots of family members and I could not see the angel of death no one could, however one by one their names were appearing on this paper all of a sudden, they were especially elders like my grandfathers age, as soon as a name appeared and I looked up and around that person passed away all of a sudden, and everyone around them were crying.

b.) I also was really frightened, I was wearing my abayah and a hijab and despite what was happening all I could think of was turning to Allah SWT, I had fear because I kept thinking I’m next and I want to die a true believing muslimah. I was worried I’d be next, and then I prayed at intervals in prayer of having the intention of tawbah nawaafil. I do this always in real life but in my dream the thing I feared most was that I do not want to die as an unbeliever or a hypocrite, and I was crying and distressed and just praying to Allah SWT. I had the fear of the unknown.

c.) The final part of my dream was where my mothers name appeared on the paper and I feared my mums going to die and I turned to my side and I saw her from a distance and she just looked like she’s passed away I walk up to her and she says something I can’t remember the exact words about her and my father being togthter always or something and she smiled I specifically remember her smile in the dream and then she passed away.

I did wake up distressed as it is horrifying having a dream of close members passing away, however when one smiles maybe that is a good thing. But I’m not a scholar and cannot interpret this. I would really appreciate it if you could interpret each sections for me inshallah.

Your response would be much appreciated, Jazakumullah khayr,

May Allah subhanu wa ta’ala reward you in abundance. Ameen
