IslamQA: What do jinns in dreams mean?

assalamu aleikum, does having nightmares with djinns have a particular meaning that we should take into consideration? or are they just like any other bad nightmares?

Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

My attitude toward dreams, good or bad, is that they are just natural phenomena caused by the way the brain works. I consider it a waste of time to try to read too much into our dreams or try to interpret them, unless we have the same dream many times.

I have seen no hadith that mentions jinns have a special significance in dreams.

And God knows best.

I’ve been having nightmares of jinns for 4 nights straight. And they all began with me being alone in the house and jinns scaring me very badly, until I manage to scare them away. Before that I’ve been bothered by a jinn in reality, one time I was sleeping on the couch and it began to whisper things and facts about Satan and Harry potter (l know its weird) later i was sitting on a sofa then suddenly it began to kick my knees and my feet, when I woke up my phone alarm immediately rang, I recited Surah Baghare from the Holy quran, after that I didn’t feel the jinns stare or disturbance.

Hello, I have recently had a dream where I was attacked by a jinn who came in the form of a mutual friend. They taunted me and asked me to say bismillah but I couldn’t and they called me pathetic and I woke up. My grandmother says it’s evil eye from either the girl who appeared in my dream or a jinn has fallen in love with me. What does this mean? I’m in desperate need of help.
