God Almighty, Lord, Creator and Cherisher of the universes.

These blessings also may continue to affect the lives of oneâs progeny.
Ifone sees Him otherwise in a dream, it means confusion, and particularly if the Almighty Lord does not address him.
If an ailing person sees Him in a dream, it means that he will soon die and come to meet Him.
