Hadith on Dreams: Seek refuge in Allah from a nightmare, evil dream

Abu Qatadah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The good dream is from Allah and the bad dream is from Satan. Whoever sees something he dislikes, let him blow to his left side three times and seek refuge from Satan. Verily, it will not harm him and Satan cannot appear in my form.”

عَنْ أَبِي قَتَادَةَ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الرُّؤْيَا الصَّالِحَةُ مِنْ اللَّهِ وَالْحُلْمُ مِنْ الشَّيْطَانِ فَمَنْ رَأَى شَيْئًا يَكْرَهُهُ فَلْيَنْفِثْ عَنْ شِمَالِهِ ثَلَاثًا وَلْيَتَعَوَّذْ مِنْ الشَّيْطَانِ فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَضُرُّهُ وَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَا يَتَرَاءَى بِي
