Is there a special prayer for seeing the Prophet in dreams?

Q. Is there a specific Salah (Prayer) that enables one to see the Messenger (peace be upon him) in a dream, and how should it be performed?

A: This has no basis in Islam. A Muslim should diligently seek Islamic knowledge from the trusted scholars of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (those adhering to the Sunnah and the Muslim main body) and keep away from the evil scholars who are innovators of Bid`ah (innovation in Islam) and Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islamic law and Muslims of sound intellect).

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions!
