  4. As salaamu a^laikum WA rahmath ullahi WA barakatahu.

    The dream was regarding my dad. I lost my dad 5 months ago and he was put on ventilator during his last days so whenever I used to dream regarding him though he was fit and fine in my dreams he haven’t speak to me and I was desperate to listen him and talk to him these days and today morning I dreamed my dad where he was on his wheelchair and I was taking him to his room and as due to the wound of his leg he had a septic shock diagnosed by the doctors so he was worried in dream saying “Raniya beta mere payr ko bachalo” and I said “daddyji ye aapka payr nahi charakh hai” and I took him home dragging his wheelchair. He was wearing white kurtapyjama and namaz cap on his head as usual. And he spoked to me so much that sometimes I didn’t got to answer him or talk back to him in my dreams. And also when while I was taking him home I saw some dust coming and was worried about the dust not touch the wound of his legs. I was so worried that while my heart was pounding in pain the same pain I felt in reality. And as he was on his death bed in hospital vice versa he also came in that way for which I could not be able to see him like that. I was crying badly for him. My aunty was saying that the doctors said that he is just able to breathe and only his heart is functional and rest of all left working. I was crying to ALLAH I was begging him to heal him in dreams. So was this the Naf’s dream or satanic or by the will of ALLAH? Please let me know.
