The Dream of Light and Guidance

The following testimony comes from Mustafa, a seeker who posted on the Dream Project website.

The day before my dream was like any other, filled with the usual activities and the same nightly prayer before I went to bed. However, the next night as I closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep, I had a dream that left an indelible mark on my soul.

As I turned to my right, the scene dramatically changed. There stood a man clad in radiant white robes that seemed to glow with an ethereal light. His presence was commanding yet comforting, and His face bore a gentle smile that immediately put me at ease.

His eyes held wisdom as deep as the ages, and when He spoke, His voice was both thunderous and soothing. “I am Alef and Ya,” He announced with calm certainty. “I am the straight path. I am Allah’s Word; you need to leave everything and follow me.”

Each word resonated within me, stirring feelings of awe and wonder. Alef and Ya, the beginning and the end, the essence of the divine message captured in human form. Here He was, the embodiment of guidance and truth, standing before me in a vision that felt more real than any waking moment.
His message was clear and profound: to leave everything and follow Him. Not merely a message about physical departure, this was a call to abandon old ways, to forsake fleeting worldly attachments, and to embrace a path of spiritual purity and unwavering faith. It was a directive to align my life with the divine will, to seek the essence of truth embedded in the sacred texts and the universe itself.

As quickly as the dream had begun, it faded, and I awoke. Despite the dream’s brevity, the joy and peace it brought me were overwhelming. I felt chosen, touched by a presence so divine that it filled my heart with an ecstatic lightness. The smile of Alef and Ya lingered in my mind, a beacon of unwavering love and guidance.

Reflection filled the days that followed. I pondered the symbolic representation of Alef and Ya, understanding that in many traditions, these letters signify the beginning and the end, the encompassing knowledge of God. The straight path He spoke of is often mentioned in the Bible — a path of righteousness, leading to peace and salvation.

This dream, I believe, was a divine interaction, a reminder of the ultimate journey of the soul towards its Creator. It was a call to deepen my faith, to live a life that continuously seeks to align with the will of God, guided by His Word and His Light (John 1:1-5).

The vision of Alef and Ya remains a powerful motivator in my daily life. It serves as a reminder that our spiritual journey is ongoing and that every moment is an opportunity to follow the path laid out by God. It reaffirms my commitment to my faith, my purpose, and the everlasting pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.

In sharing this story, I hope to inspire others to reflect on their spiritual journeys and to seek the profound messages that may come, sometimes, even in our dreams.
