Hadith on Visions: Encouragement to interpret dreams optimistically

Anas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, a dream will come to pass in the manner it is interpreted. The parable of this is a man who raises his foot until he places it down. Thus, if one of you sees a dream, let him not speak about it unless with one who wishes him well or with a scholar.

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ الرُّؤْيَا تَقَعُ عَلَى مَا تُعَبَّرُ وَمَثَلُ ذَلِكَ مَثَلُ رَجُلٍ رَفَعَ رِجْلَهُ فَهُوَ يَنْتَظِرُ مَتَى يَضَعُهَا فَإِذَا رَأَى أَحَدُكُمْ رُؤْيَا فَلَا يُحَدِّثْ بِهَا إِلَّا نَاصِحًا أَوْ عَالِمًا
