Salam everyone,

I'm new here so forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong forum. 

Over the past 4 months I've been spending a lot of time trying to learn and understand the basics behind the Shia sect ( born into the hanafi school of thought). I began to want to learn about the history of Islam and knowing my dad is shia helped intrigued my desire to learn. After reading several books and listening to lectures, I've really learned to love the ahlul bayt and come to understand somethings I've questioned so much. But recently I've been having some odd dreams which I'm not too sure why. Maybe there is a hidden meaning behind them or maybe because I'm delving myself into learning all this.

dreams are in order which they've occured

1) I was at a costco and I left my car on in the front of the store outside with emergency signal to go and help my mother bring grocery to the car because it was raining. She took longer than allowed so I went to make sure my car was still there but as I was heading out, the employees were shouting at me and while they were shouting all I thought of in my dream was imam hussein (as) for some odd reason. I began screaming his name in such a manner that it sounded like ya hussein. I then woke up thirsty as ever! I went to go get water and then it hit me; in my dream it was raining and I woke up thirsty and throughout the dream I hear imam Hussein. 


I then hen stopped watching lectures and reading for a while because I thought maybe my mind was overwhelmed until I had this next dream.

2) I had a dream where the entire dream is a blur to me right now, but all I remember was shouting Ali and Husseins name constantly. 

After this I had another such dream and then I decided to just open up the books and continue learning. But my question is this, do these dreams have any specific meaning? Out of nowhere in having these dreams with me shouting names of the imams and honestly, I'm just confused! 


Any help with this would be ever so grateful!!

Someone asked one of the Ahlulbayt of the Prophet S, I think it was Imam Jaffer As-Sadiq AS who is the 6th Imam from the Prophet's S Ahlulbayt; I don't remember the exact words; that how do we introduce people to you? Imam As replied that you present our words to them and they will come knocking at our door on their own.

From your learning and reading about the Prophet's Ahlulbayt AS, I assume you are already knocking at their door. You just need to enter and be with them. Your answer is right there of what sister @Laayla posted.

This one hour lecture may help you get clarification. You may have already listened to it.

Assalam Alikum,

You just reminded me of my journey to haq. I was also born into the hanfi school with my dad being a shia. When I was inspired to learn about shiasm I also saw dreams about the Ahlul Bayt (a) which gave me mixed feelings at the time and I used to question it. I believe its because your mind is so occupied in learning about the Ahlul Bayt (a) each day that MashAllah you start seeing them in your dreams which is a great gift, believe me don't question your dreams but just cherish them and continue to seek knowledge. What I would give to see those dreams again!
