Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 55, Hadith Number 6 (394).

Abu Qataadah Radiyallahu ‘Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam said: “Whomsoever sees me, that is, in a dream, has seen that which is a fact”.

Meaning one has really seen me. It cannot be so that the shaytaan shows something else and says that it is Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam. Some of the ‘ulama have written that it means, it is a true dream and not a collection of thoughts.
