Sheikh Muhammad Al Yaqoubi

Dream Interpretation

(These are general rules but do not take them too seriously!)

True dreams for Prophets (upon them peace) are part of their revelation

Satan can appear to men in their dreams

(The following are what you see in a dream and then what it means)

Hold a rope in a dream - is like holding onto Deen

Sailing ship is a sign of God

Biting your fingers, you are showing sorrow for your sins

If you see a ruby you’ll get married or have a baby

An Elephant means an oppressive ruler

Get a stone in a dream – obtain forgiveness

Worries – forgiven sins

Cheating – problems with belief

Passing over a bridge – running to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Eating fruits – you’ll get married

Water pouring – calamities or marriage

Milk – Knowledge

Length of clothes – reflecting righteous

Umar ibn khatab (may Allah be pleased with him) was seen in a dream with a long thoub, which the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) said it reflected his righteousness

Kufr – you are hiding something

Seasons and climates fit each other
- cold in cold, warm in warm
- season of food
- dry branches – beaten

a nightmare doesn’t always mean something bad

Repeatedly die – martyrdom
Broken teeth – relatives, top male, bottom female

Abbassid king saw a dream in which all his teeth fell out he called one interpreter who told him all his relatives would die, he was punished
The second interpreter said the king would outlive his relatives and he was rewarded

Falling into water – money

Flying – travel – get money

Enter prison – pay off debt

Hand cuffed – firm in Deen

Directions to paradise? Turn right, go straight

Step on a snake – growing farm

Beaten – get some good

Beaten on the back – debt pay off

Abu Jahl dreamed he was a Muslim it was for his son Ikhramia (may Allah be pleased with him)

The dream state starts at 30 years at the beginning of the night and towards the end it will happen soon

To see good dreams, clean yourself of the dunya

The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, “Wudu is a weapon of the Muslim.”

There should be no excuse to go to bed except with Wudu

If you see a bad dream keep it secret and it will not hurt you

Spit lightly over your left hand shoulder and seek refuge

Never make up a dream

Sheikh Muhammad al Yaqoubi

Islamophobia part two

Its not easy for a speaker to come and speak to you, from Damascus

Two invasions are taking place, in Lebanon and Iraq, they are taking revenge on ordinary people

An American once asked him why do you hate us, we don’t hate you

The first country to recognise America was Morocco and they were the first to accept the state of Israel

We don’t kill non-Muslims, we call them to Islam

Killing people on the basis of their religious beliefs is against Islam

We do not stab in the back

The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) banned Muslims from killing innocent people women, children, religious people

What do we have to offer the world except poverty and underdevelopment


If we look at ourselves as Muslims we will find out that we have a lot to offer humanity. We are responsible to humanity and take them out of misguidance

This is the best time for us to work to spread Islam

We are better than others with the shadhda

The worst crime is to rebel against Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

His father saw the signs of victory, as people see the day, they are like (the scholars) mountains, unmoving

During the battle of the trench, he (peace and blessing be upon him) broke a rock, he saw victory

Islam will reach where the sun reaches, Islam will be in every home

Palestine will be liberated

Don’t worry about this Deen, Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala protects it

Some people who don’t have conviction in multi faith dialogues

Many people became Muslims because of what the conviction they saw in Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) after the opening of Mecca

Show your strengthen in conviction this is what will lead people to Islam

People fear Muslims, if they don’t fear (awe), then there is something wrong

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) said he was given five things that no one else was, victory, fear, the distance of one month, travelling

One months travelling includes all Arabia where he (peace and blessings be upon) passed away, Islam had already gone across Arabia

This means the whole world

Why do you expect to people to respect you, when you don’t show it in your behaviour

The true Muslim is the one who doesn’t harm anyone with his hand or his tongue

The cartoons benefited the Muslim because they didn’t know who the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) was

Insecurity is inside the people who go against Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

The major achievement of communism was to take people from Christianity

There is no religion that survived ideological attacks except Islam

With half a mile of the Umayyad masjid, there is the Christian and Jewish quarter (in Damascus)

We have a long history of tolerance

We have to look at ourselves and ask the question, if we are solving (problems)

We have a power behind us, which is stronger than anyone

It doesn’t matter if we or our children see it, Islam will be triumphant

The best Islam practiced is the religion that is practiced by the people who practice it

We have to call people back to the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon)

Secular Muslims are doing a lot of damage to Islam

When we go home we have to do something practical

We need to pray five times a day

Sidi Ahmed Zarruq (may Allahs mercy be with him) examined people who prayed Isha and Fajr in Jamma and no problems befell them. This is from an hadith.

Why don't people do surveys like this

True belief is based on knowledge
