Dream

A dream is a succession of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that usually occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. The content and purpose of dreams are not fully understood, although they have been a topic of scientific, philosophical and religious interest throughout recorded history. Dream interpretation is the attempt at drawing meaning from dreams and searching for an underlying message.

The Prophet (SAWA) never orders a Muslim wife to leave her Muslim husband.

I can not confirm that you saw the Prophet in your dream. It is possible that you saw some else and you thought him to be the Prophet.

It is Haraam for you to leave your husband as far as he is a Muslim who does not harm your religion.

Wassalam.

No - some people remember their dreams better than others or are more open to these things. Also you can't be sure that other people's dreams are actual communication, although sometimes you get an idea one way or the other.

Inshallah she would not have reasons to be angry to you after she has passed on - many things we are angry about in life become unimportant once we are not dealing with the material and social realities of this world. Allah also says in the Qur'an that He will remove bad feelings from people's hearts in jannah.

However if you are concerned that she is angry at you, you could pray that she forgives you.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Wet dreams are not haram. One must do ghusl and purify themselves at some point after a wet dream and not doing so could be haram if their salah would become qada or if they needed to fast. 
 

May Allah grant you success

Controlling bad desires is always possible through strong will power and strengthening the intellectual qualities and remembering the results of the good deeds and bad deeds. Those who use their senses and intellect, see the results before it happens as life has millions of similar examples of people who followed their desires and landed in disastrous results and pious people who controlled their desires and got high degrees of success.

Dreams are not intentional acts, so , there is no punishment for just dreaming.

Wassalam.

Not all dreams are meaningful as sometimes dreams reflect your thoughts or matters or worries etc. Dreams seen during wrong time of sleeping ( e,g. between Fajr and sunrise and between Asr and Maghrib etc) have no value.

Seeing your relatives in the dream does not mean that they miss you nor want you with them, rather reminding you to do more good deeds for them. Deceased relatives expect from us to help them as the Hadeeth says: Have mercy on your deceased beloved ones by giving charity on their behalf إرحموا موتاكم بالصدقة

Thank you for your question. What you see in dreams in somewhat intricate. You may be projecting your own mind or you may connect to the imaginal realm. Either way the meaning of a dream is connected to all the various aspects within the dream and so it is not possible to say for certain.

May you always be successful

Well, people dream all sorts of things, some of them have meaning and some of them don't. If she is praying for this and you know she is praying for this, it makes sense that you might dream about it. Possibly your subconscious is thinking about it even if your conscious mind isn't.

If her brother has expressed an interest in marrying you, and it is a reasonable possibility for you to marry him, you could consider it. It is a blessing to have an opportunity to marry someone compatible whom you might have some trust in. It could be nice to marry a friend's brother (although keep in mind it can also change the nature of your friendship, especially if there are marriage problems). Of course there is no guarantee that the marriage would be happy but it is worth considering if you think he might be a compatible spouse. However you should make your decision based on the real life circumstances around you, not just the dreams.

If he hasn't expressed an interest in getting married then there is no reason to give it thought - he may or may not be ready to get married right now.

Anyway, you are lucky to have a friend who likes you so much that she wants you to be family. :)

Insofar as you aren't obsessing over your dreams and you are not doing anything unwise or harmful because of a dream, it doesn't hurt to go with your gut feeling, especially if the dream is saying something useful or beneficial (such as advice or a warning). Oftentimes we have a sense of what has meaning and what doesn't. Time uncovers the truth about many things. 

Even "true dreams" are understood through the imagination because the brain understands things symbolically. 

Also it is good to keep in mind that even if there are some things in dreams that are correct, sometimes they don't happen when we expect. For instance a person might have a dream that something will happen in November, they will wait and it won't happen, then it will happen the next year in November. And also it is good to remember that fate and destiny are all in Allah's hands, and we can never be sure what is fixed and absolutely fated to happen and what isn't. So it is not good to put all our expectations in dreams; at the same times, sometimes we are given information that is helpful for us especially during times of change or challenging times.

Thank you for your question. This is a complex issue and one that cannot be explained in detail in a written response. However, one of the benchmarks of a real dream is when a person sees one of the Infallibles (as) in their dream.

It might be because of a forgotten sinful act which needs seeking forgiveness (Istighfaar) or it can be because Najis bed or Najis sheet etc. It can be also because of late meal which causes bad dreams.

It is mentioned in many Hadeeths that i is recommended to go to toilet before going to bed.

Wassalam.
