Asalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
Dear Mufti Elias, i have been reading this site for a while and I thank you so much for this great effort may Allah grant you al Firdaus.
I am 16 years old and i had a dream a few years back when i was in a desert, i looked very holy with a beard (i dont have facial hair even yet, well barely) and was at the top of a sand hill. It was very windy and the Prophet (saw) himself was struggling to come to the top of the hill to me, when he approached me he just said said Go to Jihad, saying it in a tone while struggling to come up in the heavy winds. I want to know what this means. I am almost a full hafiz now please make dua for me. Before, when i read Quran and its meaning, my heart used to become very very soft, and it used to feel as if allah was saying it directly to me. But now i read and i dont feel anything, i need help with this. I also have had a problem (like 99.9% of guys my age) for the past 2 years with masturbation, so I need your input on that. I wake up and lead tahajjud and taraweeh in the masjid. Please make dua for me
