Dreams are one of the most difficult areas in Islam to interpret. Part of the reason is because of the involvement of the ‘Ruh’ in dreams, and in the Quran we are clearly told that Allah Almighty has given mankind little knowledge regarding this.

In a Hadith recorded by Imam Bukhari (Book of Dreams, Chapter; Dreams are from Allah, 6470), the Prophet (S.A.W) said,

‘When someone sees a dream which he likes, then it is from Allah, and thus he should praise Allah and tell others about it. And when he sees a dream other than that which he dislikes then the dream is from the devil. He should refuge from the evil from it and should not tell anyone or it will harm him.’

You can refer to the book ‘Ta’bir al-Ru’ya’ by Ibn Sirin, who lived one generation after the Companions (R.A). This is the most authentic book available on the topic of the interpretations of dreams.
