Dreams about Future Events

Recommended Posts

I was reading a comment about the couple and their Insta goals, about the way we watch others live their life. It got me thinking about things.

Our mobiles have made us these tech addicted zombies, rather than go out and spend time at a park, we gaze at some Instagram couple going to a park instead. One has become easier than the other. Much like how people are absorbed with the lives of others instead of living their own better.

Then I remember a dream I had... Stay with me on this, it's quite interesting.

Over 10 years ago I had a dream where the atmosphere had become so polluted that we all had to stay indoors and we would sit and put on these weird goggles that showed footage of the outside world when it wasn't polluted. For years I never understood the meaning of this dream, other than the atmosphere part, but why were we all hooked up to these devices? 

Now I sit here and realise that it has almost become a reality, what I was dreaming about are the VR devices you can get for phones, and they even have a way now of filming footage somewhere and for another person to watch it live through these devices! I might not be too shocked when Instagram couples decide to do their social media like this.

Weird, huh? Do you think the ordinary Joe Bloggs can have dreams about things that turn out to be true in the future? I remember hearing a hadith that said true dreams are 1/46 parts prophecy, but I don't know the reliability of such hadith. I had another darker dream about the world as a kid, but I won't go into it.

Was literally speaking with my dad about this today. He says it is an addiction and we need time out to just reflect, daydream, let the mind wander, etc. 

Otherwise we lose that creativity. There is also no down-time for the brain to absorb and process all this information we are constantly bombarding it with.

Even in bed before sleep.

He said how he used to remember vividly his childhood but now it is hazier.

I am being honest in admitting I do need to take a break and put the screen away, it is also a terrible example for the next generation.

It is really bad how contemporary parents take the easy way out and give their toddlers ipads to numb their brains and distract them, so they are alleviated with having to keep their children entertained and stimulated.

Sure it is hard, but generations managed without devices.

It is sad seeing babies developing screen addiction. This is also unprecedented and unchartered waters, we do not know the full implications, mentally and pyschologically on this new generation, how they will interact socially as they get older.

Only Prophets can have such things. Not sure if they should be called dreams, more like visions?

But no. That's just psychology. For instance you saw the dream 10 years ago. You may think you remember it well but the truth is in time our minds start replacing forgotten things with new ones and memories can easily become disfigured.

Maybe, but my memory hasn't been disfigured. It is one of only a handful of dreams I still remember.

No! we can all have visions and premonitions of the future. Whats special about Prophets is that they receive a message from God meant for all of society or even all of humankind. This type of vision ended with Mohammed(صلى الله عليه وسلم وعائلته)
The visions that the rest of us can have is for our own personal use. The Sufis has perfected this and is actively seeking spiritual enlightenment through visons.

Who told you this? I don't mean a scholar but a scripture or a Prophet or a messenger.

We don't notice it. The subconscious replaces pieces of memories. There is no way for you to be absolutely sure of it. But I mean in general when talking of such dream - any dreams.

The noble Qur'an Surah Al-Ahzab (33) ayah 40 tells us that Mohammed(صلى الله عليه وسلم وعائلته) is the seal of the Prophets. So no more messages to all of human kind.
This does not mean that humans don't get visions and premonitions of the future. That would go against my own and many other peoples personal experience. From this I can deduce by common logic that when these visions and premonitions is not meant as messages to all of human kind it must be for personal use. In other words the way Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ‎) is guiding and warning us individually.

Okay. That certainly doesn't count as proof though. Actually I read somewhere recently about how Allah only speaks to the Prophets. But I forget who said it.

There must be many Prophets then. Also after Mohammed(صلى الله عليه وسلم وعائلته)...  or maybe you think it is Shaytan that speak to us and make us realize the oneness of God?

I don't understand why someone after Mohammed (sallallahu alaihi wassallam)?

You aren't talking about dreams, you're talking about memories.

I don't think you have a clue what you are on about, especially when speaking on behalf of what I remember and don't remember.

I am sure of what I remember, you on the other hand are not.
