Troubling Dream: My Fiancé’s Concerning Experience Helping His Cousin

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My future husband has been has been getting this dream. I am worried as it is troubling him and he has confided in me only about it. It started when he helped his young cousin who had gotten involved with a boy and this boy would not leave her alone. My fiancé intervened and removed all access this boy had to this girl without threatening him or causing any drama. But now he has been having this dream where “he and his cousin are in a speeding in a bakkie and theres a guy on the side step of the bakkie, and as this guy lifts and swings his hand, he cuts my fiancés cousins face. My fiancés proceeds by grabbing his cousin and pushing her on her side to protect her while fighting with this estranged person, whose pulling him out the window. He says the last thing before he wakes up in a shock is seeing a tyre coming straight towards his head.” His cousin is a bit of a troubled teen but alhumdullilah my fiancé is helping her and Insha Allah she will come right. I just want to no if its a dream to worry over or maybe its something else in which his subconscious is trying to warn him about.


A: The meaning of the dream is that he should observe purdah with yourself and not have any contact with you until he gets married. Similarly he should observe purdah from his female cousin. Through not observing purdah and fulfilling the command of Allah a person falls into sin and major calamities. 

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