Question: Assalomu alaykum the other day my mom dreamed about me getting married to a stranger but I'm already married alhamdulillah. Can you tell me what it means?
Answer:
I am not an expert in interpreting dreams. However, you need to seek refuge in Allah if you saw dreams like these that are sinful or abominable. 
 
The Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us to turn to Allah when we see experience bad dreams. He said, "Whoever sees bad dreams, let him/her say the following Du'a three times and turn to another side in sleep:
 
Bismillaahi alladhee laa yadhurru ma'aismihi shay'un fi al-ardhi walaa fi al-ssamaa'i wahuwa al-ssamaee'u aleem
 
(In the name of Allah. With His name, nothing on earth or heaven can do any harm. He is the All-Hearing and All-Knowing). 
 
Since it involves Zina, you should also make lots of istighfaar (seeking forgiveness of Allah). Also, you ought to examine yourself and see if you are cherishing any lustful thoughts, for often our dreams are indicative of our thoughts or preoccupations which are sinful. So, we ought to purge our hearts of such thoughts and seek repentance.
