Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

First of all, we apologize for not answering your question because the site is specialized in responding to Islamic questions, and we do not have a section that deals with the interpretation of dreams.

We ask Allah to bring good to you and repel evil from you.

It is perhaps appropriate to mention here that a frightening vision is most likely caused by the devil, in order to grieve the believer, but he cannot harm him with anything except with the permission of Allah Almighty.

Jabir  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him narrated that a man came to the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) and said: “I saw in a dream as if my head had been cut off.” Thereupon, the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) laughed and said: “When Satan plays with any one of you in his dream, he should not mention it to the people.” [Muslim]

Also, if he sees what he hates, he should abide by the Prophetic treatment and that dream will not harm him at all.

Abu Salamah ibn 'Abdur-Rahmaan  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him said: “I used to see a dream that makes me sick.” He said: “I met Abu Qataadah, who said: “I also used to see a dream that makes me sick until I heard the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) saying: “The good dream is from Allah. So, if any of you sees what he likes in a dream, he should not tell it to anyone except to whom he loves. If he sees in a dream what he fears, he should spit on his left-hand side three times and seek refuge with Allah from its viciousness and from the evil of Satan, but he should not inform anyone about it at all, and in this case, it will not cause him any harm.” [Muslim]

Another narration reads: “He should change the side on which he was sleeping.

These narrations include Islamic etiquette when one sees such dreams.

Allah knows best.
