Dreaming Prophet Muhammad | from autobiography of Shaykh Muzaffer Ashki al-Jerrahi

| Shaykh Muzaffer Ashki al-Jerrahi (1916 - 1985) |
rev. Guide of Halveti-Jerrahi sufi order

The dreaming of the Prophet Muhammad, the Messenger of God holds very special status in Islamic tradition, both exoteric and esoteric. The Prophet himself has recorded (ref. Tirmidhi) to have said the following about seeing him in dream: "He who sees my hilye (description) after me, it is as if he had actually seen me, and he who sees it out of love and desire for me, God will forbid the fire of Hell to touch him. He will be safe from the trials of the grave, and he will not be sent forth naked on the day of resurrection."

In 1981, Shaykh Muzaffer wrote brief autobiography in his book Unveiling of Love: Sufism and the Remembrance of God, where he mentioned about his profound dream of the Messenger of God, Muhammad, other Biblical Prophets and many of the chosen spiritual companions of Prophet Muhammad who attained highest degree of spiritual enlightenment. Shaykh Muzaffer writes:

"During my early youth, while studying Koran interpretation at the Aya Sofya Mosque in Istanbul, I dreamed one night of the Prophet, on him be peace. He was riding his camel, led by Imam Ali, may God be pleased with him, who was holding in his other hand his famous sword, the two-edged Zulfikar.

Addressing me, the Prophet asked if I had faith and if I was a Muslim. When I said yes, he asked me if I would give my head for Islam. Again I said yes. Then the Prophet told Imam Ali to cut my head off in the name of Islam. Imam Ali asked me to stretch my neck out, then struck me with all his might, severing my head from my body. I awoke in terror.

When I saw my Koran teacher next morning, I told him my dream...

My teacher then interpreted my dream and said that I was going to join the Sufi path of Ali and that I would become the Sheikh of a particular order.

I am the nineteenth Sheikh and eighth khalifa since the creation of our branch of the order (Halveti-Jerrahi Sufi Order). With the strength received from the will of God, the wish of His Messenger, the good pleasure of my saint, the spirituality of all the Sheikhs before me, and the blessing and faith of my master and benefactor, I look forward to being involved in the spiritual guidance of lovers till the day I die. I have only two children born of my blood, but God knows the number of my spiritual children. I have had the honor of seeing the Prophet, on him be peace, seventeen times in the world of dreams.

I have seen Moses, Jesus, John, and Khidr once. I have seen both the venerable Abu Bakr and Umar twice, and in one of these dreams I kissed their hands. I have seen both our lady Fatima and Imam Ali twice, and Imam Hasan and Imam Hussein once. I have seen my saint Nureddin Jerrahi twice, receiving his compliments.
