Dream of My brother dying

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org


I had a dream a few years ago that my brother died and he had a cloth over him like a shroud. A little while later in the dream we found out he was alive. I saw him صحيح سالم. This dream came when we were in my old house. 

Then I had another dream maybe a year or so later I’m not exactly sure how long later maybe a few months that we were in my room (setting is in the house we moved in after that) and my brother and my dad are there. I didn’t quite see him die but he died and then I saw that he was in a small decorated box on top of my dresser. The box was not see through- I couldn’t see him. I don’t know if his soul was in it or what but he was in it. Then me and my dad were in the kitchen, and he came in the kitchen صحيح سالم. This time we were sure that he had died and were confused to why he is alive now. 

Please interpret this dream.



الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

It’s not necessarily bad to see someone dead in a dream.

Note: Please advise whether your brother is alive at this moment or has passed away for further interpretation of the dream.
