    Question: This is regarding dream of my maternal uncle couple of months back. The dream is as follows in his words: I saw a big room, there is one old mattress in the room and behind that mattress there is a new mattress. I am standing near both the mattresses along with an unknown person. That unknown person told me that this (pointing towards the old mattress) was Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW) mattress, and now this one (pointing towards new mattress)? I saw the old mattress was not in good condition and the new one is in good condition (new piece). That unknown person neither asked me for anything nor had he spoken anything else to me. This is my complete dream and nothing other than this I saw to best of my knowledge.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1210/1307/N=1433) The unknown person in the dream is Satan. The dream indicates that if any unknown person attributes any saying or practice towards the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) or towards the Shariah revealed on the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and declares it sunnah, lawful or part of the religion then the words of that unknown person shall not be accepted until it is not confirmed by the authentic scholars of Ahl Haq: هذا ما ظهر لى مما قاله عبدالله بن مسعود – على ما أخرجه الإمام مسلم رحمة الله في مقدمة صحيحه (ص 10) – إن الشيطان يتمثل في صورة الرجل فياتى القوم فيحد ثهم بالحديث من الكذب فيتفرقون فيقول الرجل منهم : سمعت رجلا أعرف وجهه ولا إدري ما اسمه يحدث " ، ويدل على هذا الأصل ما قاله ابن سيرين – على ما أخرجه مسلم في مقدمة صحيحه (ص 11) – "إن هذا العلم دين فانظروا عمن تأخذون دينكم " .
