Seeing the prophet in a dream and interpretation of vision

Assalam 3lakum wa Rhmat Allah wa Brikatu, Dear Scholars in Islam,a few months ago, I had a dream regarding the Prophet Mohammad (may peace and blessings be upon him).  I really want to know its meaning and therefore I was wondering if you can interpret it for me.  Before I begin, I hope Allah (swt) will forgive me if I accidentally say something that is false or if I exaggerate, but this is how I remember it and inshallah it is the truth  In my dream, I recall speaking to the prophet (rae) while sitting in the same car; he was sitting in the driver?s seat in the front and I was sitting behind him.  The car was not in motion.  Unfortunately, I do not remember seeing him, or what we were speaking of, but in my dream, I knew I was happily speaking to him with a smile.  Subsequently, after speaking to him, I turned to my seat in the back and found a baby?s car seat beside me.  I looked at it and then I knew that Ali bin abe Talib was coming. Suddenly, a black man came, which I believe was Belal (rae), and he opened the door that was opposite the Prophet?s door.  The man had a serious look in his face; therefore, I assumed he wanted to take the Prophet (rae) somewhere important.  So respected scholars in Islam, can you please interpret this dream for me? And inshallah I did not forget anything, or say something false.  Thank you?Jazakum Allah khyran!!! Inshallah Allah (swt) will reward you all on earth and in the hereafter with continuous blessings filled with success, happiness, and wealth?.Ameeen    Sincerely,    Your Companion in Islam

Superiority of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. As Muslims we all believe in the superiority of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) over all human beings and regard him to be the greatest of Allah's creation. In the light of the following Qur'anic verse and hadith, kindly explain if we are correct in believing in the superiority of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).In the Qur'an, Almighty Allah says, "To those who believe in Allah and His Messengers and make no distinction between any of the Messengers, We shall soon give their due rewards.” (An-Nisa': 152). In the Sahih of Al-Bukhari there is also a hadith reported by Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him): Once while a Jew was selling something, he was offered a price that he was not pleased with, so he said, “No, by Him Who gave Moses superiority over all human beings!” Hearing him, a man from the Ansar got up and slapped him on his face and said, “You say, ‘By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all human beings’ although the Prophet (Muhammad) is present among us!” The Jew went to the Prophet and said, “O Abul-Qasim, I am under the assurance and contract of security, so what right does so-and-so have to slap me?” The Prophet asked the other, “Why did you slap him?” He told him the whole story. The Prophet became angry so much so that the anger appeared on his face, and he said, “Do not give superiority to any amongst Allah's prophets, for when the trumpet will be blown, every one on the earth and the heavens will become unconscious except those whom Allah will exempt. The trumpet will be blown a second time and I will be the first to be resurrected to see Moses holding Allah's Throne. I will not know whether the unconsciousness which Moses received on the Day of Tur has been sufficient for him, or whether he got up before me. And I do not know that there is anybody better than Yunus ibn Matta.” (Al-Bukhari, vol. 4, Hadith 626). Jazakum Allah khayran.

Depicting the Prophet in Movies

Assalam O AlaikumI am a regular visitor to this website and greatly appreciate the work that you are doing.I am a computer cartoon animator and have aspirations to work on a flash movie of the history of Islam - a small project which is an animated presentation similar to Islamic movies like The Message. I do aspire to make a flash based series of the story of the life of the Holy Prophet(PBUH) - keeping in consideration the fact the Holy Prophet(PBUH) and Most of His Blessed companions are not to be depicted.I have however come under on one hand appreciation for my intentions and yet criticism from some of my peers. Criticism in the sense that some of my peers abhor the idea of such a project considering it as abhorable citing the prohibitions of pictures and music. I am quite confused at this point, for I was inspired to do this project after having seen the animated movie of the Prophet(PBUH) which incidentaly recieved approval from various Islamic authorities such as the Authority of Al Azhar and centers of learning. I would like your scholarly opinion on this matter and whether or not: 1 - It is allowed to work on such a project considering that there will be some drawings and animation of certain characters which will be limited to some of the personalities depicted in the movie the Message 2 - Considering the integration of music in the project. 3 - Further guidelines and advice to what care should be taken in working on such projects.I donot wish to cause any offence to anyone or be involved in any sinful activity.I would greatly appreciate a detailed answer. Thank you for your attention.
