According to some thinkers when one thinks and rethinks on a problem and does not find the solution of the problem. After a lots of result-less effort, when one is tired and goes to the bed, having those thoughts in mind, he is more likely to repeat it in the dreams. Sometimes, it is even helpful, and one can find out the best solution - or even a hint leading towards that solution - which he/she had been trying during the day time.
Bernard Shaw says ‘the voice come first, and I find the reason after’. When someone works very hard upon a problem and fails to get a result of it. Then there is a possibility that he can go into the condition of sleep because he was very tired but his mind was there in the problem. His brain nerves were active in finding the solution of the problem. I think this is the stage when someone gets some ideas by the Grace of ALLAH Almighty.
For example Richard wanger who was a famous German composer. HE himself writes in his book Newman that he had been working years on a composition but he was not succeeded .But one day September 4, 1863 he reached a hotel and could not sleep in night because of fever and noise and in the next day afternoon he sleep and finally the idea of famous composition Rinegold came to his mind.
There are so many examples of such persons who get some help from Dreams. Some time sleeping produces good result .Sir walter scott says to himself never mind, I shall have it at 7 o’clock tomorrow morning . Gauss, one of the great mathematicians writes that he found the idea of ‘Law of induction’ in a dream on 23rd January 1835 before rising .Helmholty says, ‘often ideas come as soon as one wakes up in the morning‘.
So dreams comes to all people whether they are Muslims are not .Any one can see signs in dreams by the Grace of ALLAH Almighty. And the saying that the reality of dreams is always opposite I think does not have much weight in it.
