I saw the twelve chiefs with their wifes and all of them looked very Western, in fact in my dream they were Germans. And in their middle was Ahmed Al-Hasan (pbuh), he was with them and I knew it was him. But he also looked western, he was very tall but had white skin.
So I went to him and told him "But in the narrations it says that you will be dark skinned, so how come you are white?!"
When I woke up I felt very ashamed that I had asked him this, that I was questioning him based on what "i knew"... and it struck me that this was exactly what was happening with the black banners... I was aspecting the Imam to appear in a certain way, from a certain direction - but he was coming from an unexpected direction so I question and deny him...
This reminded me a lot of the countless ahadith about how Ilsam will come back as something strange, or about how the qaim will come completely different then people will expect.
Aba 'Abaida Al-Hazza said: „I asked Abu Jafar (pbuh) about the matter - when will it happen?" He said: "If you expect it to happen in a certain way, but it comes to you in a different way - do not deny it." (Al-Mu'jam Al-Mawddo'i: page 767)
And Prophet Mohammed (pbuhahp) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began.”
Then I made istikshara if this dream was a testemony FOR the black banners movement (as dreams can mean the opposite) and it was very positive.
