The answer to your question is as follows:

It is a hadith that a true dream is one of the 46 parts of (knowledge of) prophethood. Mulla Ali Qari states:

قِيلَ مَعْنَاهُ أَنَّ الرُّؤْيَا جُزْءٌ مِنْ أَجْزَاءِ عِلْمِ النُّبُوَّةِ، وَالنُّبُوَّةُ غَيْرُ بَاقِيَةٍ وَعِلْمُهَا بَاقٍ، وَهُوَ مَعْنَى قَوْلِهِ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – ” «ذَهَبَتِ النُّبُوَّةُ وَبَقِيَتِ الْمُبَشِّرَاتُ الرُّؤْيَا الصَّالِحَةُ» ” (مرقاۃ المفاتیح 7/2913) وَقِيلَ: إِنَّمَا قَصَرَ الْأَجْزَاءَ عَلَى سِتَّةٍ وَأَرْبَعِينَ ; لِأَنَّ زَمَانَ الْوَحْيِ كَانَ ثَلَاثًا وَعِشْرِينَ سَنَةً. وَكَانَ أَوَّلَ مَا بُدِئَ بِهِ مِنَ الْوَحْيِ الرُّؤْيَا الصَّالِحَةُ، وَذَلِكَ فِي سِتَّةِ أَشْهُرٍ مِنْ سِنِيِّ الْوَحْيِ، وَنِسْبَةُ ذَلِكَ إِلَى سَائِرِهَا نِسْبَةُ جُزْءٍ إِلَى سِتَّةٍ وَأَرْبَعِينَ جُزْءًا. (مرقاۃ المفاتیح 7/2913)

And Allah knows best
