300. וְעַל זֶה שָׁנִינוּ, קוֹרְעִים לוֹ גְּזַר דִּינוֹ שֶׁל שִׁבְעִים שָׁנָה. מִי הַשִּׁבְעִים שָׁנָה? אֶלָּא, אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁהִסְכִּימוּ עָלָיו כָּל אוֹתָם שִׁבְעִים כִּתְרֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ, שֶׁהוּא נִרְאֶה בָהֶם, הַכֹּל נִקְרָע, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהָעַתִּיק הַקָּדוֹשׁ נוֹטֵל (מְבַטֵּל אוֹתוֹ וּמְהַנֶּה) אֶת הָאָדָם, וְהַדְּבָרִים הַלָּלוּ, כְּשֶׁמִּתְעוֹרְרִים עָלָיו בַּחֲלוֹם בְּלֵיל שַׁבָּת.
301. לְמֶלֶךְ שֶׁעָשָׂה הִלּוּלָא לִבְנוֹ, וְגָזַר שִׂמְחָה עַל הַכֹּל. בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה שֶׁל הַהִלּוּלָא כָּל הָעוֹלָם הָיוּ שְׂמֵחִים, וְאִישׁ אֶחָד הָיָה עָצוּב, תָּפוּס בְּקוֹלָר. בָּא הַמֶּלֶךְ לַשִּׂמְחָה, רָאָה אֶת כָּל הָעָם שְׂמֵחִים כְּמוֹ שֶׁהוּא גָּזַר. הֵרִים עֵינָיו, רָאָה אֶת אוֹתוֹ הָאִישׁ הַתָּפוּס בַּקּוֹלָר עָצוּב. אָמַר, וּמַה כָּל בְּנֵי הָעוֹלָם שְׂמֵחִים בַּהִלּוּלָא שֶׁל בְּנִי, וְזֶה תָּפוּס בְּקוֹלָר? מִיָּד צִוָּה וְהוֹצִיאוּ אוֹתוֹ וְהִתִּירוּ אוֹתוֹ מִקּוֹלָרוֹ (מִקְּשָׁרָיו).
302. כָּךְ זֶה שֶׁשָּׁרוּי בְּתַעֲנִית בְּשַׁבָּת, כָּל הָעוֹלָם שְׂמֵחִים – וְהוּא עָצוּב, וְזֶה נִתְפָּס בְּקוֹלָר. בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁהָעַתִּיק הַקָּדוֹשׁ מִתְגַּלֶּה בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה וְנִמְצָא הָאִישׁ הַזֶּה תָּפוּס בְּקוֹלָר – אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁהִסְכִּימוּ עָלָיו כָּל אוֹתָם שִׁבְעִים שָׁנִים שֶׁאָמַרְנוּ, הַכֹּל נִקְרָע, וְלֹא שׁוֹרֶה עָלָיו הַדִּין. בְּיוֹם אַחֵר יֵשׁ בּוֹ רְשׁוּת לִקְרֹעַ אוֹתוֹ. בְּאוֹתוֹ יוֹם, כָּל שֶׁכֵּן בְּשַׁבָּת.


Zohar Emor
Continued from previous DZ
Therefore, we have learned that his decree of seventy years is torn up. What are these seventy years? It means the seventy Sefirot of the King, which are Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yessod, and Malchut, with ten sefirot in each of them. Even though they agreed on the judgment, everything is torn up. This is because the “Atika Kadisha” takes the person under His protection, meaning He shields him. These matters are awakened if accusations are made against him in a dream on Shabbat night, and he observes a fast because of the dream. But not other fasts.

Similar to a king who held a festive banquet for his son and decreed joy for everyone. Everyone was joyful on the day of the celebration except for one man who was sad and bound in shackles. The king arrived at the celebration and saw everyone rejoicing as he had decreed. Then he noticed the man who was sad and restrained. He said, “Why is it that everyone in the world is rejoicing at my son’s celebration while this man is bound in shackles?” Immediately, he ordered that the man be released and freed from his shackles. 

This allegory highlights Hashem’s mercy and the importance of people’s happiness, especially during the high revelation of Light, like during the Shabbat, that was gifted to us as children of Hashem. When someone cannot participate in that joy due to their circumstances, Hashem bestows mercy upon him (the one fasting because of a dream showing judgments) and releases him from his “shackles.”

Similarly, this is the case with someone who fasts on Shabbat. While the whole world is joyful, this individual is sad and is as if bound in chains. When the Atika Kadisha reveals Himself on this day, and this person is found to be in chains, even if a decree of seventy years that we mentioned earlier, which corresponds to the sefirot of Zeir Anpin, has been agreed upon him, everything is torn up. The judgment does not prevail over him. On another day, even if one fasts on a weekday, he has the authority to annul his decree on that day. How much more so on Shabbat?

This text discusses the profound impact of divine intervention in the case of a person who fasts because of a disturbing dream, specifically on Shabbat. According to this, even if the higher levels have agreed upon a harsh decree spanning seventy years, it can be annulled by the Atika Kadisha, who represents Keter, mercy, and protection. The fast because of a dream on Shabbat night is particularly powerful and is seen as capable of drawing Hashem’s mercy, unlike other types of fasts.
DO NOT fast on Shabbat unless you have a deep spiritual understanding of dreams. Remember that a fast on Shabbat requires an additional fast during the weekday. If one wants to cleanse past sins, he/she should do Teshuva, engaging in deep Torah study, prayers, and Tzedaka.
