Prayers for true dreams – by Hadhrat Aischa a.s.

Oh, Allah, bless my night

and grant me true dreams

dreams that are beneficial to me

and dreams that remain in my memory.

According to the book by the famous German orientalist Annemarie Schimmel ‘ Die Traeume des Khalifen ‘   (the dreams of the Khalifa)  the above prayer was said by Hadhrat Aisha.  a.s.

I think the book is only available in the German language.

It deals with dreams and their interpretation in the Islamic culture.   It contains literally hundreds of dreams from olden days to modern days.  For instance a dream of Dr. Abdus Salam is also included, also her own dream just before the death of Z. A. Bhutto.

Interesting reading for those who speak German.
