Nightmares

Q:

Salamu alaykum, i hope this meets you in the best of health and imaan?

I have been battling with nightmares ever since i was a kid. I usually cry in my sleep, waking up screaming snd yelling. As I’m growing older these dreams are becoming sexual and it’s very disturbing. Sometimes i wake up feeling like someone has touched me or whatever is happening in my dream is actually happening in reality Subhanallah. It really scares me as I’m not yet married and i have heard of several cases where jinns can be with unmarried girls in their dreams. I take my morning and evening duas very seriously and this is bothering me alot. I wake up feeling sad and dirty plus this didn’t happen during Ramadan. During Ramadan i sleep like a baby and wake up happy.

A:

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.

All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Prophet Muhammad.

You need not feel bad for these dreams, for they are beyond your control.

You are strongly recommended to observe sleeping adhkar (invocations); particularly:

1- Chapters 112, 113 and 114 of the Quran (you should cup your hands together, blow into them, read these chapters and then wipe with your hands as much of your body as you can starting with your head and face) [Al-Bukhari and Muslim],

2- Verse number 2:255 (the verse of the Divine Seat), the reading of which guarantees that no Satan will approach you until you wake up [Al-Bukhari], and

3- Verses number 2:285-286, for they are sufficient [protection] for whoever reads them at night [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

May Allah protect and help you.

Allah knows best.
