How to see Prophet Muhammad in a dream?

“O Shaykh, I want to see Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in my dream, what is the dua or wazifa for it?

The Sheikh invited him over the dinner and told him that he will share the dua or wazifa. The Shaykh had prepared meals for his student.

There was a lot of salt in the food so the student started feeling thirsty after the meal but there was no water on the table. The students asked for water, but Shaykh refused it.

After the food, he instructed the student to go inside a room and sleep thirsty with a promise that the next morning he will share the secret receipt.

The next morning, the student told the Sheikh that he dreamt of rain, rivers, and oceans the whole night.

The Shaykh said, you were thirsty and thereby dreamt of water. If you are truthful about your love for Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, you could see him in your dream.
