What is the importance of dreaming in Islam? Why does God let people dream things that He will not make real?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

One of the most important elements that ties man to life is dreaming. If God had not given people the possibility of dreaming, their life would have been too bad. When we look at the miserable state of a disappointed person, it will not be hard to estimate the miserableness of people who have never had dreams.

God gave man not only the ability to dream, which has many good functions, but also the mind in order to keep dreams within bounds. If a person who has a good sense regards each dream as something that must be realized, he is bound to be mad one day.

Every drug has some side effects but it is necessary to use some drugs; similarly, many nice spiritual elements, feelings and thoughts that man has do have some side effects. The mind is very nice but if you load on it too many things that it cannot carry, you will cause it to go astray.

Many clever philosophers turned out to be foolish materialists because they used the mind out of its boundaries and tried to understand the principles of belief through their mind, without needing the light of revelation.

It is understood from this explanation that the existence of dreaming is a great bounty; it has no manufacturing defects but there are some usage errors. As a matter of fact, those who use dreaming wrongly are called daydreamers or stargazers.
