Why would one of you speak of the tricks Satan plays on him

23. Hushaym [ibn Bushayr] narrated to us from abuz-Zubayr from Jaabir (radhi Allaahu anhu) who said,

A man came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) and said, ‘I dreamt that my head was chopped off.’ The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, ‘Why would one of you speak of the tricks Satan plays on him [in his sleep]?’

[Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 3, p. 307. The isnaad of this hadeeth is saheeh according to the conditions set by Muslim.]
