How do I respond to the recitation of Qur`an in my dreams?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I also often find myself reading surah fatiha… Then surah ikhlas mostly… Sometimes also durood sharif… And at times I`m in tensed situation or don’t remember exactly what it is but I recite Dua e Yunus abundantly in my dream … And I’m always worried and tensed… As if I fear of losing something … At times only prayer soothes my heart … I want to know what my dream interpretation means …

The recitation of Surah al-Fatihah, Surah al-Ikhlaas, Durood Shareef and of Dua-e-Yunus in one’s dream or while being awake is a great blessing[1] and invokes the mercy of Allah. We make dua Allah grants you courage and peace[2]. Ameen
