The real things for a salik are his actions in the wakeful state. However, exceptional dreams are to be reported to the Sheikh only. They provide a window to the subconscious thoughts preoccupying one’s mind. Also, good dreams by those engaged in their islah are source of contentment leading to more good actions.
