    I had a dream a year ago during Ramadan. I woke up for tahajud and sincerely made my dua. One of the things I prayed for was for Allah to keep me away from a guy that was asking me for my hand marriage at the time that if he isn’t good for me or if he will keep away from pleasing Allah, subhabahu watala. I prayed that if he is good for me and will help me grow closer to Allah, i asked Allah (sw) to make our union easy and blessed. Later, after I prayed salat alfajer, I went to bed. Subhannah, this is the dream I had that morning, and although I feel good about it, I am still unsure about the exact meaning of it:**************
    In a market full of people on a very sunny day, my brother comes out of nowhere and drops a roll of long fabric-roll at my mom’s spices shop. He then tears a little from it and walks off with it in his hand. Later, The guy that is still waiting to get me to say yes to marry him then comes out of nowhere and picks up the roll of fabric, puts it under his left arm with a big smile on his face, graps my hand wirh his right hand and walks off fast from the market with a big glow on his face. In this dream, I am a little girl 8-10, very pretty, wearing white hijab. Because he was walking too fast trying to catch up, I sort of run/walk with him and then he says to me I will tell Kamal, who is my cousin and his best friend from childhood, that he will take it all the way this time after I asked him “what are you going to tell Kamal?”…..that meant to me that he wanted to marry me. In the dream, i am thinking I was married to Kamal. ******
