Q: I just came back from Umrah and I read istikarah there for marriage to a certain boy. I had a few dreams, please help me interpret them.

The first dream I had I was looking at wedding dresses while my brother was on the phone with the boy. They were laughing and happy. I can’t remember what they were talking about.

Another dream I had was my mother was looking at the boys picture and was smiling and I got shy and turned away.

I also dreamt of the boy standing in Madina outside the haram wearing a black kurta.

Another dream was I walked into a room that was empty and completely white, in the dream I thought to myself is this a hospital ward or what? I stood at the door of this white room.

In Makkah I dreamt of the name of Allah Al Malik, it was written in Arabic and in black and I was looking at it.

Please help me as I am so confused. I don’t want to make the wrong decision. Divorce has become such a norm and I don’t want that to happen to me.


A: The dream is positive. If your parents are pleased with the boy’s Deen, character and mannerisms, you may accept the proposal.

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