Q: I dreamt that I went to take my Nani somewhere. She used me as a support whilst we were walking. I was surprised at how fast we were travelling. We went past a Jamaat Khana and I saw a Muslim brother around my age sitting on the stoep. I thought about being careful about not feeling pride and showing off when assisting my Nani.

We were now in a grassy area. We saw my previous Doctor (a Muslim) ahead. My Nani said that I must meet him and leave her here.

The Doctor was very happy to see me. However, he resembled a teenager with jeans, blue-coloured braces on his teeth, etc. He asked if I am a Haafizul-Qur'an. I replied in the negative and said that I have done two paras, but refrained after two months (I am not a Haafiz and this is not true in reality). He commented on the green colour on my arm. I realized I was wearing a certain jacket. I felt unconformable and started removing it. (In reality, I stopped wearing this jacket due to the bright, fancy colours). My Nani shouted to me from the distance to tell the Doctor something. I was surprised at how loud she could speak and how strong she became.

I left the Doctor and went to a small stone staircase. My cousin and his nephew were there. An old, stone church was there. I went up the staircase into a cool and shady garden surrounding the old stone church.

A 27-year old Muslim man from the Akhirat came walking to us. My relatives were familiar with him and we had a small conversation. The man then told me that Hadhrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu ‘anhu and Hadhrat 'Umar Radhiyallahu ‘anhu sends their Salaams for me. I was sitting on the floor. I was surprised at this. I asked: "Does Hadhrat Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu ‘anhu and Hadhrat 'Umar Radhiyallahu ‘anhu know who I am?" The man indicated positively.

I felt surprised and also embarrassed that such individuals are sending me their Salaams whereas I am a type of person that looks at animate images and videos, listens to music, and does not perform all Fardh Namaaz (All this is true.)

The dream then ended and I woke up. I responded to the Salaams when I woke up.

I ask if this could please be interpreted.

A: Read the Qur'aan Shareef regularly in the mornings and evenings and do some ta`leem together with being punctual on your namaaz.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
