Prophet’s dream


Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

Musailima Al-Kadhdhab came during the lifetime of the Prophet (saws) and started saying, “If Muhammad gives me the rule after him, I will follow him.” And he came to Medina with a great number of the people of his tribe.
Allah’s Messenger (saws ) went to him in the company of Thabit bin Qais bin Shammas, and at that time, Allah’s Messenger (saws ) had a stick of a date-palm tree in his hand.
When he (i.e. the Prophet (saws) ) stopped near Musailima while the latter was amidst his companions,
he said to him, “If you ask me for this piece (of stick), I will not give it to you, and Allah’s Order you cannot avoid, (but you will be destroyed), and if you turn your back from this religion, then Allah will destroy you. And I think you are the same person who was shown to me in my dream, and this is Thabit bin Qais who will answer your questions on my behalf.”
 Then the Prophet (saws ) went away from him. I asked about the statement of Allah’s Messenger (saws) : “You seem to be the same person who was shown to me in my dream,” and Abu Huraira (ra) informed me that Allah’s Messenger (saws) said, “When I was sleeping, I saw (in a dream) two bangles of gold on my hands and that worried me.
And then I (Prophet pbuh ) was inspired Divinely in the dream that I should blow on them, so I blew on them and both the bangles flew away. And I interpreted it that two liars (who would claim to be prophets) would appear after me. One of them has proved to be Al Ansi and the other, Musailima.”

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (saws) said, “While I was sleeping, I was given the treasures of the earth and two gold bangles were put in my hands, and I did not like that, but I (meaning Prophet pbuh)  received the inspiration that I should blow on them, and I did so, and both of them vanished. I interpreted it as referring to the two liars between whom I am present;
(On of them) the ruler of Sana and (other ) the Ruler of Yamaha.

 Prophet’s dream

Narrated Ubaidullah bin `Abdullah bin `Utba:

We were informed that Musailima Al-Kadhdhab had arrived in Medina and stayed in the house of the daughter of Al-Harith. The daughter of Al-Harith bin Kuraiz was his wife and she was the mother of `Abdullah bin ‘Amir. There came to him Allah’s Messenger (saws) accompanied by Thabit bin Qais bin Shammas who was called the orator of Allah’s Messenger (saws). Allah’s Messenger (saws) had a stick in his hand then. The Prophet (saws) stopped before Musailima and spoke to him. Musailima said to him, “If you wish, we would not interfere between you and the rule, on condition that the rule will be ours after you… The Prophet said, “If you asked me for this stick, I would not give it to you. I think you are the same person who was shown to me in a dream. And this is Thabit bin Al-Qais who will answer you on my behalf.”
The Prophet (ﷺ) then went away. I asked Ibn `Abbas about the dream Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) had mentioned. Ibn `Abbas said, “Someone told me that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “When I was sleeping, I saw in a dream that two gold bangles were put in my hands, and that frightened me and made me dislike them.
Then I was allowed to blow on them, and when I blew at them, both of them flew. Then I interpreted them as two liars who would appear.’ One of them was Al-`Ansi who was killed by Fairuz in Yemen and the other was Musailima Al-Kadhdbab.”
