Permissibility of using a book to interpret dreams

Question ID: 24109

Assalaamualaikum Mufti
I hope you are well
My questions to you are:
1. Are we allowed to interpret our own dreams by making use of an interpreting book?
2. There was a man proclaiming to be imaam mahdhi very recently in makkah, however he was stopped by security because he shouting this over the mic. When the real mahdhi does truly appear how will present homself to the ummah?
3. Qiyaamat 14 hundred years ago the prophet (saw) said that qiyaamat is close i can only imagine how much closer we are now however will we ever know when isa(as) will decend as he is to live for forty years?
4. How does one have confirmation that one has gone astray, everytime i do something wrong for eg. Switch on the tv or radio i think to myself that this is wrong and i am being watched by Allah (swt) but i wont put it off is that ignorance?
5. What can i do or read in order to be more steadfast and headstrong as well as more regular with my salaah
Jazaakallah Ghair for taking the time to answer my Questions Mufti may Allah (swt) reward you abundantly ameen.

1) This is disastrous. Abstain.
2) Between Hajre Aswat and Maqame Ibrahim when the real Mahdi will be present, a sound from up high to testify him been Mahdi and to be testified by 313 pious present. For more see on our site - Books and Audio.
3) We do not know the exact time.
4) See and test yourself against the yardstick of Quraan and Sunnat
5) Be amongst the pious, avoid un-culture personal, do a little good but do it regularly.
