Beloved Rasulullah ﷺ in Dream

There was a pious and saintly man from Peshawar, whose name was Abdur Rahaman Peshawari (R). I [Shaikh Farooq Saheb (R) ] have heard an incident about him from my respected seniors. Once he saw Rasulullah ﷺ in a dream. Rasulullah ﷺ was very pleased and asked (meaning), “Abdur Rahman, what do you wish for?” Abdur Rahman (R) said, “Ya Rasulallah ﷺ! Now that my eyes have seen you, they should not see anyone else.” (This is what he wished!) Rasulullah ﷺ replied (meaning) “Think carefully on what you say!” Mawlana Abdur Rahman (R) said, “I have already thought about it. It is unbearable for me to see anyone else now, when once my eyes had your vision.” When Abdur Rahman (R) woke up, he had lost his sight and was completely blind. Alhumdulillah he was happy and uttered, “O Allah! It’s your great favour that you have permitted me to see your Beloved Rasool ﷺ with these polluted eyes.”
