Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)
If someone receives good tidings from one of the pious or in a dream how should they react?
They should show gratitude to Allah, increase in humility and increase in desire to good works. They should constantly reflect upon the state of the best of the Companions who were given the greatest of good tidings of Paradise and other things from the Prophet ﷺ, the most truthful of all people. However, they were not deluded by these things but rather lived out their lives in a state of fear of Allah, humility and uprightness.
