Dreams of a Darbar Visit and a Request for Water from the Departed

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Last night I saw a dream that I went Pakistan and my elder brother in-law was driving a van with meand my in-laws family in it. After a long path we reached a place where a darbar (shrine) of a buzurag was. I did not enter in the darbar as I though I am not paak. My mom also went in the darbar but I stood outside and made dua. An unknown old man also stood with me and made dua. When we came back to the van I saw some gem stones and pick them and said I will stick them in my new suit as one stone in that suit is missing. My elder son also picked a gem stone from there and gave me. Please explain it to me.

One of my mum’s friends died recently. I saw her in a dream. She was saying to me give me a glass of water as my grandson is not giving despite me asking many times. When I woke up in the morning I read sura mulk  and sent the sawaab for her. I am worried for her as she died and she was a good namazi and read Quran in her life.



  1. You should remain on the Sunnah. Refrain from things that are not established in Deen. Similarly observe purdah from all na mahram males (even cousins).
  2. The meaning of the dream is that her family should remember her and recite a portion of the Qur’an or give charity and convey it’s reward to her.

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