Can Laylat-ul-Qadr be seen in a dream or while one is awake?

Q 1: Can Laylat-ul-Qadr (the Night of Decree) be seen in a dream or while one is awake? Is it special or general? What are its signs? I heard that following Laylat-ul-Qadr, the sun on the next day becomes red and the sky becomes cloudy. If this occurs, this means that its blessings embraced both worshippers and Kafirs (disbelievers).

A: It is stated in the Sahih (authentic) Hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him) that the sun on the next morning of Laylat-ul-Qadr will have no rays. It is also stated that Laylat-ul-Qadr was shown to the Prophet (peace be upon him) in a vision and then was caused to forget (by Allah).Scholars differed on specifying its exact night. According to the correct opinion maintained by scholars, its timing remains unknown. Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) made it unknown for worshippers to do their best in performing acts of `Ibadah (worship) hoping they will coincide with it. It should be sought in the last ten days of Ramadan, most likely during the odd nights. The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: Seek it in the last ten nights of Ramadan; seek it in the last nine, seven, five, three or last night. With regard to a Muslim's seeing it, it may be shown to a Muslim in a dream. It is narrated in the Sahih that `Abdullah ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) said that some of the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) were shown in their dreams that Laylat-ul-Qadr was in the last seven nights of Ramadan. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) stated: It seems that all your dreams agree that (Laylat-ul-Qadr) is in the last seven nights. (Part No. 9; Page No. 317) Whoever wants to seek it (Laylat-ul-Qadr) should do so in the last seven (nights of Ramadan). However, if it is shown to a Muslim in a dream, they should not act according to such a dream because it may be from the devil. Legislation and rulings of Shari`ah (Islamic law) are not based on dreams or visions. The Prophet (peace be upon him) held that opinion about the vision of the Sahabah because they the visions were the same.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
