I see that you're waiting for some religious interpretation of your dream, I can feel your fear and confusion and it's normal to feel this in the
circumstance. We are living in the end times, this dream that you dreamed can be a foreshadowing of the final battle of Armageddon, or it could be the
battle of Gog and Magog which will come first before the final battle Armageddon.
The lesson to be learned here; our days are getting short, and we should take every advantage of every opportunity to do good deeds that will stand us
in good stead at the Day of Judgment.
I will share with you something that might help you have a better understanding of dreams in general. God said that every time we sleep, He gathers
our souls, in such wise that every night when we sleep, it's like dying, and every morning when we wake up is a resurrection. So during the time that
God gathers our souls in the night when we sleep, our soul get glimpses of the unseen things, exactly the same thing thing that happens to a person
when he/she dies. A soul, upon death becomes conscious of the unseen things which otherwise is invisible while one is still alive. So a dream that one
experiences while sleeping might be a true vision of what has happened before or could be a vision of something that's going to happen in the future.
But all this should bring home to each and everyone of us the reality of our mortality.
39:42 Allah receiveth (men's) souls at the time of their death, and that (soul) which dieth not (yet) in its sleep. He keepeth that (soul) for which
He hath ordained death and dismisseth the rest till an appointed term. Lo herein verily are portents for people who take thought.
Ponder these words written by one of the most Eloquent servant of God, Ali Commander of the Faithful about The limitations of life
People have been created as a proof of God's power, have been brought up with authority, they are made to die through pangs, and placed in graves
where they turn into crumbs. Then they would be resurrected one by one, awarded their recompense and would have to account for their actions, each one
separately. They had been allowed time to seek deliverance, had been shown the right path and had been allowed to live and seek favours, the darkness
of doubts had been removed, and they had been let free in this period of life as a training place in order to make preparation for the race on the Day
of Judgement, to search for the objective with thoughtfulness, to get time necessary to secure benefits and provide for the next place of stay.
How appropriate are these illustrations and effective admonitions provided they are received by pure hearts, open ears, firm views and sharp wits.
Fear Allah like him who listened (good advice) and bowed before it, when he committed sin he admitted it, when he felt fear he acted virtuously, when
he apprehended he hastened (towards good acts), when he believed he performed virtuous acts, when he was asked to take lesson (from the happenings of
this world) he did take the lesson, when he was asked to desist he abstained (from evil), when he responded to the call (of Allah) he leaned (towards
him), when he turned back (to evil) he repented, when he followed he almost imitated and when he was shown (the right path) he saw it.
Such a man was busy in search of truth and got rid (of the worldly evils) by running away. He collected provision (of good acts) for himself, purified
his inner self, built for the next world, and took with himself provision for the day of his departure, keeping in view his journey, his requirement
and the position of his need. He sent ahead of him for the abode of his stay (in the next world). O' creatures of Allah, fear Allah keeping in view
the reason why He created you and be afraid of Him to the extent He has advised you to do. Make yourself deserve what He has promised you, by having
confidence in the truth of His promise and entertaining fear for the Day of Judgment.
O' creatures of Allah, since the neck is free from the loop, and spirit is also unfettered, now you have time for seeking guidance: you are in ease
of body; you can assemble in crowds, the rest of life is before you; you have opportunity of acting by will; there is opportunity for repentance, and
peaceful circumstances. (But you should act) before you are overtaken by narrow circumstances and distress, or fear and weakness, before the approach
of the awaited death and before seizure by the Almighty, the Powerful.
Your dream is a timely remembrance, a wake up call to seek God and fulfill the purpose of our creation, that is to Worship God alone, to Praise and
glorify Him while we're able, and by doing good deeds to please God and warding off evil.
