As-Salaam alaikum,
In the Hadith, the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was quoted in a narration by Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, as saying:--

"Who saw me in the dream really saw me, because Shaytan
cannot assume me."


And in another Hadith, he said: "Whoever sees me in the dream will see me in reality".

One of the most tried and tested means of gaining the vision of the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, during sleep is intense love for him, occupying one's thoughts with the Prophet day and night, along with faithful conforming with his Sunnah and frequent prayers of benediction (salawaat) upon him in a continuous fashion. Also, we should be upright on his ways (istiqama) and be yearning towards seeing him, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.

Some great 'Ulama of the Ummah have indicated that whoever wishes to see the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, then let him or her remember him frequently, love the Awliya, and keep to the Sunnah. Added to this, one may adopt any one of the following methods to see the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam:--

(1) The Qutb, Sheikh Abdulqadir al-Jilani, may Allah be Merciful to him, in his book 'al-Ghunya'
wrote that Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, alaihi
Salaat Was-Salaam,
said: ''Whoever, on the night preceding Friday, prays 2 raka'at nawafil Sallah,
and in each raka'at recite: Fatiha (1), Ayat Kursi (1) Surat Ikhlas (15).. after this, you sit and
say (recite) 1,000 times: "Sallallahu alaa Muhammadin-Nabiyy-il-Ummiyy", then the next Fiday
will not come without him seeing me in his sleep,and whoever sees me then Allah forgives his sins."

(2) Imam Nawawi, may Allah be Merciful to him, wrote in his Adhkar: "Whoever, on the night preceding
Friday, prays 2 nawafil raka'ats, reciting Ayat Kursi 5 times in each raka'at after Fatiha, and then
after his Sallah, sits and recites salawaat ala Nabiy (any type of salawaat you wish) 1,000 times,
then he will see the Prophet in his dream."

(3) Sayyadi Ja'afar as-Sadiq, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: "Whoever recites Surat al-Kawthar (chapter
108 of the Qur'an) 1,000 times, and then recites salawaat ala Nabiy 1,000 times, in the night preceding
Friday, and then ask Allah to allow him to see the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, then he will see
the prophet in his sleep in sha'allah."
