Asalaam u alaykum Mufti

I accepted Islam about a year ago and sincerely try to learn as much as I can everyday about Islam, to practice Islam to the best of my ability and Insh’Allah to be a good Muslim.

I recently had several dreams about my late grandparents, which have been a source of some anxiety for me. The dreams seem to vary. The first was of my grandmother waiting for me outside a school that I was visiting with my aunt (my grandmother’s youngest daughter) and when we crossed the street and spoke to her, she asked me for food. The second was also of her, but she did not say anything. She just held out her hand for me to hold so that I could help her to walk- I’m not sure where she/we were going. I then dreamt of my grandfather sitting outside the home of my uncle (this is where my grandfather lived until his death), asking that something (a structure of some sort I think) that’s at the front of the house, be moved.

I took quite ill shortly after this series of dreams but alhamdullilah recovered on the last day of Shabaan. In the last week of Shabaan my cousin (the daughter of the aunt who was in my dream) had a terrible nightmare where she saw someone/something in her room that really scared her, apparently wanting to do harm. In her dream she also kept seeing me. She was so disturbed and worried about me after this dream that she insisted my Aunt tell me about it.

I’m not sure if there is a message in these dreams or some warning, or if I must make a particular dua for my Grandparents (they died as non-Muslims) and my family/relatives, or generally what to make of it.

JazakAllah for your guidance.

Let your grandparent matter rest with Allaah, you cannot make Dua for them. Care for your family near you.
