Can One Discuss Dreams Related To A Bad Experience In The Past?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Gibril F Haddad

I was attacked some time ago and suffered some permanent injuries. Since then, sometimes when I sleep I have nightmares. Is there something I can do about them? I am told not to tell anyone about bad dreams, but I have also been told that to get past some of these things I should talk about them with somebody. Also, sometimes I want to tell a friend about my experience. What are your thoughts on this?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Continue to build up the practices that strengthen your tawakkul, as this will eventually block out bad dreams. Continue not to tell the bad dreams to anyone. As for simply discussing what you went through, it is permissible, and even to complain about the attacker, as you were wronged and the backbiting of the victim of an injustice is permissible.
