Dreaming of White Rice
Question:

I often dream about white rice, please tell me the interpretation of this?
Answer:

I dont know the interpretation of the dream, but because of the many questions about dreams, I do wish to say to my brothers that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) taught us what to do when we have a bad dream. We should seek refuge in Allaah three times for the cursed Shaytan, spit three times to our left, and say: Secret counsels (conspiracies) are only from Shaytan, in order that he may cause grief to the believers. But he cannot harm them in the least, except as Allaah permits. [1] He should not tell anyone about it, and turn from the side he was sleeping on to the other side. If he stands, performs ablution, and pray two units of prayer, this is even better. If we follow these instructions from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) bad dreams will not harm us no matter how terrifying they may be.

[1] Al-Mujadilah 58: 10.
