Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 The appearance of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم has been explained in great detail by the Sahaba radiallahu anhum. These ahadeeth are to be found in the books of Hadeeth. For a detail description of the appearance please refer to the translation and commentary of “Shama’il Tirmidhi” by Hazrat Sheikh Maulana Zakariyyah Kandhelvi rehmatullah alayh.

It is possible for a human being to see Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم in his dream. Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم himself mentiones in a hadeeth that “Whoever sees me in a dream, it is as if he has seen me whilst awake. Shaytaan cannot take my form”.

This is a special favour of Allah. Our advice is to adhere strictly to the Sunnat of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم and to send Salaat and Salaam on him صلى الله عليه وسلم in abundance. We are not required to seeing Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم in the dream but we are required to follow his Sunnats.

We haven’t come across any such narration. However those who will follow the sunnats of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم will enter Jannah.


And Allah knows best
