Q: I have been married for four years Alhamdulillah and I have never been pregnant. My husband and I found out before eid ul adha that I was 5 weeks pregnant but I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks. It was heart breaking for both of us. While I was pregnant I saw a dream in which I saw blood and I started crying. And exactly a few days after I suffered a miscarriage. I also dreamt that my husband and I and a little boy is performing tawaaf of the  Kaabah and some woman asks me who this little boy is and I tell her that he’s my son. She says that you will have a daughter the following year. I often at night see some dark shapeless creature watching me at the side of my bed and it scares me. Before my miscarriage when I was 5 weeks pregnant I saw two dark shadows near my pillow side. Although miscarriage is a test from Allah but these black shadows scare me. Can you answer me are they shayateen trying to scare me or something else. Please answer what both my dreams mean? My mother and I have seen so many dreams of me having a baby but I have not had a successful pregnancy. I have gone into depression many times after loosing my baby. Please help.


A: The dream of blood refers to the miscarriage and the dream of the young boy making Tawaaf of the Ka’abah Shareef with yourself and your husband refers to Insha Allah, Allah will bless you with a son followed by a daughter. There is no need to worry about the dream of the black shadow, however after your five daily Salaah and before retiring to bed, recite the four “Quls” and “Aayatul Kursi”. Allah Ta’ala will save you from all evil. 

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