Summary/Abstract: Predictions of future events and dreams, where we distinguish general dreams, dreams as a result of Istikhaarah prayer done by the chronicler either for himself or for someone else, and those related to Istikhaarah prayers performed on behalf of Bašeskija occupy a special place in Bašeskija's field of interests. These notes reflect the specificities of Muslim beliefs in Sarajevo in the second half of the 18th century.
