I came across a fatwa from Askimam regarding seeing Prophet (P.B.U.H) while awake.


The holy prophet(pub) visits the people sometimes in their dreams and at other times when one is awake


i have a question regarding ziyarat e rasul(saw). i have a book named ziyarat of rasul e pak during the wakeful state.It has many instances which tell how do different buzurgan e deen
were visited upon by the prophet(saw) and also the 4 caliphs of islam.then at times also by hazrat fatima(RA).The holy prophet(pub) visits the people sometimes in their dreams and at other times when one is awake..Once i was reading about a saint who kept on reading daroodsharif but failed see the messenger.After 12 years he tried to commit suicide and he tied himself to the tree.with a string.suddenly he saw rasullalah catching him by his waist thus blessing him a new life.This happened in alaam e bedari(in wakeful state). people like shaikh abdul qadir jilani used to see the great messenger in front of him.communicating!Once a saint used to recite darood sharif 75 times a day and kept on seeing the blessed face of the holy prophet.Once there was another sanit whose father died when he was a kid.He and his mother used to boil the leaves and ate them in extreme poverty and never begged from anyone.Due to this pure food allah bleesd him to see the holy prophet in dreams often.there was once a saint who was blessed
in such a way that he was wakened by the holy prophet at the night of shab e barat.and he witnessed the holy sight with his eyes.I wanted to know that why people now a days dont see the holy prophet in wakeful state but only in dreams.Is this due to lack of our imaan now


It is possible that people do see the Holy Prophet (SAW) in a wakeful state in today’s times, but they do not relate this instantly. You will probably hear of this as time progress.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

In another thread on this forum,posted by brother76, i came across this

P:34-35 from the same book.

Questioner: "In ‘Arwaahe Thalatha’ Hadhrat Thanwi رحمة الله عليه has mentioned that Hadhrat Shah Waliyullah رحمة الله عليه was worried about his children. Nabi-e-Kareem ﷺ became visible to him and said, ‘Love my children.’ It has also been written about Hadhrat Shah Abdul Azeez رحمة الله عليه that someone had come with a question."

Answer: "Nabi-e-Kareem's ﷺ attending the lecture of Shah Saahib رحمة الله عليه was not to derive any benefit like how you and I will sit to acquire some benefit. Rather, Rasulullah's ﷺ coming was to assist and endorse (Hadhrat Shah Saahib's talk). If Allah Ta'ala allows this to happen, then what is the problem?

Hadhrat Shah Waliyullah رحمة الله عليه writes that, "Qaari Abdullah Saahib رحمة الله عليه used to live in a certain Jungle in Delhi. We had all gone to learn Qur-aan Shareef by him. When Qaari Saahib رحمة الله عليه used to recite the Qur-aan shareef, he would close his eyes and sway his body, oblivious of his surroundings.

One day, whilst reciting the Qur-aan, some people wearing the sunnah clothing arrived. At their forefront was a personality who seemed to be their leader. He stayed for a while and then said, ‘May Allah Ta’ala bless you. You have fulfilled the right of the Qur-aan.’ Saying this, he departed. Upon completing his tilaawat (recitation) of Qur-aan, Qari Saahib opened his eyes and asked, ‘Mia, did anyone come here? My heart was awestruck.’ He was then told what had transpired.

Then, another person with saintly features appeared and asked, ‘Did Nabi-e-Kareem ﷺ come pass here?’
Someone asked him, ‘Why?’ He replied, ‘Two days ago I saw Nabi-e-Kareem ﷺ saying, ‘I'm going to listen to the Qur-aan (tilaawat) of Qaari Abdullah the day after tomorrow.’ He added, "I was not asleep at that time. I was awake. My eyes weren't closed. I was seeing this with my eyes open.’”

Dreams are plenty, but this is an incident which had occurred in a wakeful state. Nonetheless, I've been describing the bond and love, which the seniors of Darul Uloom Deoband have for Rasulullah ﷺ .

I wanted to ask, is this proven from Sharia or sayings of Auliya?
