Q: I had the following dream. I was reading Salaat behind an Imam. The Imam started reading something extra in the salaat I did not follow him and waited for salaat to finish. When salaat was completed some people were poking me and wanted to shoot me with a gun. However the gun did not fire instead it was getting jammed. Then I am telling the Imam hold faast on to the Quraan and Sunnah I repeated this many times to him. Further I mentioned to the Imam hold on to the Quraan and Sunnah and do not add anything extra and you will not go wrong. After that the Imam put his round me telling everybody not to harm me for I am his freind. Mufti Saheb because I stay very close to Sparks Road Masjid I at times read my Salaat there.
A: Alhamdulillah,this dream is a sign that you are upon hidaayat and that Allah Taala will protect you against people who do not intend good for you. It is better (and closer to the sunnah) to perform salaat in a masjid which is free from innovations.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
Mufti Zakaria Makada
