Respected Mufti Saheb

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Zaid (not his real name) is a Hafiz who knows his Qur’an very well. He requests the interpretation of the  following dream: He dreamt that he was extremely thirsty. Suddenly a learned person presented a glass of water  aying: “Watch what you drink – and leave some for me because my medicine is in it.” When Zaid took the  glass and brought it close to his mouth, the water had suddenly turned to blood and pus which had a terrible  stench. Zaid was shocked. With extreme dislike he moved the glass away. At this point he woke up from his sleep.

Hafiz Zaid must guard his tongue from all evils, especially lying, backbiting, swearing, and from disrespecting his elders. The learned person who handed him the glass saying “my medicine is in it” must also guard his tongue. May Allah Ta`ala grant everyone the ability to do so. (Maktoobaat, vol. 2, p. 73)
