If one sees a wolf entering his house in a dream, it means that a thief will burglarize his house and that he will chase and capture him. If one sees himself raising a wolfs cub in a dream, it means that he will raise an abandoned child of a thief who upon growing up will bring that family much pain, suffering, divisiveness and loss of property. Seeing a wolf in a dream also could represent false allegations one may fabricate to assault an innocent person. If one sees a wolf turning into a steer in the dream, it means that a boy who is used to stealing will repent for his sin, turn to honesty, trustworthiness and grow to become a good and a generous person. Seeing a wolf in a dream also means receiving praises from one’s superior at work, or it could represent profits from one’s job. If a wolf chases someone in a dream, it means that the person will see happiness, or it could mean his martyrdom.

Marriage Dream Explanation — (Cage; Digging a grave; Duel; Golden cage; Pearl; Sanctuary; Silver cage) Marriage in a dream represents the providence of Allah Almighty and care for His servants. Marriage in a dream also means imprisonment, indebtedness, sorrow, distress, depression, carrying a liability, or endeavouring to achieve a high ranking position. If one marries a known woman in his dream, it means that he will endeavor to satisfy the normal responsibilities of a husband. If one marries an unknown woman, and if he could not see her in his dream, it denotes the nearing of his death, or it could mean moving from an old house into a new one. If a sick woman sees herself getting married to a man she does not recognize or know his name in a dream, it means that she may die from her illness. If the man who sees himself getting married in the dream qualifies, it means that he will attain a high ranking job or a suitable position. If one’s wedding ceremony is made with witnesses only in the dream, it means that he has made a covenant with Allah Almighty. If he performs a traditional wedding ceremony with its celebrations and festivities in the dream, it means a new job, or it could mean acquiring fame, or becoming renowned for one’s good reputation or character. Marriage in a dream is also interpreted in association with a trade. If one marries a woman who dies shortly after her wedding in the dream, it means that he will perform a job that earns him nothing but hard labor, toiling and stress. If one marries an adulteress in a dream, it means that he is an adulterer. If one marries a vicious, aggressive or a dominating wife in a dream, it means that his movements will be hampered with various restrictions. If one marries a deceased woman in a dream, it means that he will revive a profitable project he had earlier abandoned. If a man offers his mother in marriage to one of his friends in a dream, it means that he will sell his house. If a pregnant woman sees herself getting married in a dream, it means that she will give birth to a girl. If she sees herself in her wedding night in a dream, it means that she will beget a son. If a mother who has a son sees herself getting married in a dream, it means that she will marry off her son. In general, the marriage of a married woman, or of an unwed woman in a dream means benefits. If a woman marries a deceased man in a dream, it means that she will become lost and impoverished. If a married man sees himself getting married to a second woman in a dream, it means profits. To marry the daughter of a known man of knowledge in a dream means prosperity. If a sick woman marries a man of knowledge in her dream, it means recovering from her illness. If a man sees himself marrying a living relative who is in a degree of consanguinity that precludes such a marriage in a dream, it means that he will sever his ties with such a relative, or with her family. Otherwise, if that relative is already dead, it means that he will contact her immediate relatives and establish a friendly relationship with them. (Also see Cage; Duel; Sanctuary; Wife; Yoke)

Cat Dream Explanation — The cat symbolizes a book in view of a verse in the Holy Quran in which the word qitt, meaning in Arabic “cat,” is used as a synonym for “written fate” or “sentence”  (“Sad”, verse 16). It could also symbolize the neglect of the woman and children or their harsh treatment. But the cat is one of the most controversial figures in dreams. Some regard it as a servant and a guardian, others as a thief from within the house  (an insider). It refers to all beings who stay around the person to guard him but who, at the same time, embezzle, steal, or harm him and are, in fact, of no use to him. For example, being bitten or scratched by a cat would mean that the dreamer will be betrayed by his servant or will fall ill. According to Ibn Siren, a cat’s scratch means an illness that will last a year. The case would be worse if the cat dreamt of was of the wild type. By contrast, a quiet she-cat means a comfortable year, a savage one a year full of harm. The she-cat is sometimes a reference to tender motherhood. Other contradictory symbols include:  (1) Dispute or controversy.  (2) Adultery.  (3) The product of adultery or an abandoned child whose father cannot be identified.  (4) The absence of gratitude.  (5) The failure to fulfil a promise or honour one’s obligations.  (6) Being quick of hearing.  (7) Whispers.  (8) The hypocritical flatterer and gadabout. The she-cat usually symbolizes an evil and deceitful woman. A woman told Ibn Siren she dreamed that a cat had introduced its head into her husband’s stomach, taken something out of it, and eaten it. The great seer said that a black thief would enter her husband’s shop that evening and steal 316 dirham’s from his safe. And so it was. There was a black bath attendant in the neighbourhood. The people of the area got hold of him, and he confessed to his crime and restored the money. When asked how he managed to know all that, Ibn Siren said that the cat was a thief, the husband’s stomach his safe and what was taken out of it the money. As for defining the exact amount, Ibn Siren said that each letter of the alphabet had its specific number. Therefore cat—in Arabic sanur—stood for 316 dirham’s. • Shedding blood after being scratched by a cat or losing an eye to its claws: Beware of an implacable enemy! • Selling a cat: The dreamer will spend his money. • Eating cat meat: Will learn magic. • Turning into a cat: Will earn one’s living through illicit practices and theft. • A cat entering one’s house: A robber will break in. Whatever is taken away by the cat will be stolen by the burglar. • Acquiring cat meat or grease: Will get money from a thief or obtain something stolen. • Fighting a cat that bites or scratches the dreamer in the process: Long illness or deep trouble followed by relief. If the cat was overwhelmed, recovery will come faster. The reverse is also true. • A cat and a mouse getting along with each other, as in the case of the wolf and the sheep:  (1) Hypocrisy.  (2) No more fear of the enemy.  (3) The ruler will be just to his subjects.  (4) The world will turn upside-down. • Seeing a civet cat: A man of contradictions, combining high virtue and an evil character.

Hair Dream Explanation — The hair symbolizes money, long life, prestige, and religion. But the dream has different interpretations depending on who has made it. Shaving one’s head is a good dream for someone who usually does it. The reverse is also true. For a warrior it means that he will fall in action and become a war martyr. • A fighter seeing his own hair: Prosperity, protection, and awe. • A rich person seeing his hair: His own wealth. • A poor person seeing his hair: His sins. The better and the more beautiful the hair, the more dignity and pride are enhanced. • Dreaming that one’s hair has become curly: Will rise in life and become prosperous. • Dreaming that one’s curly hair has become soft and limp: Will be lost and things will take a turn for the worse. • Seeing one’s hair soft and limp but sprinkled: The money of the dreamer’s chief will be squandered. If the hair is not sprinkled, the boss s money will increase. • Seeing oneself with long hair and being happy with it: Good dream, especially for women who use other women’s hair to adorn themselves  (wigs made of human hair). • Ibn Siren resented dreams whereby young people saw their hair graying or turning white, which, for him, meant poverty and worries, especially if the hair was long. Such a dream by a poor person meant that debts would add to misery or that he would go behind bars. • Removing one’s white hair, one by one: The dreamer is doing things contrary to the Tradition of the Holy Prophet and has no respect for the elderly. • A young man seeing some white hairs on his head: An absent one will come back. • Seeing one’s hair having turned white: Will have a child. • A woman dreaming that all her hair has turned white:  (1) Her husband is corrupt.  (2) Her husband will make her jealous by having an affair with another lady or a maid.  (3) She will bring trouble and sorrow to her man. • A woman seeing her hair black:  (1) Her husband loves her.  (2) Her husband is straight and righteous. • A woman dreaming of uncovering her hair: Her husband will be absent. If the hair remained uncovered, the husband will not come back to her. If she is not married, the dream means that she will never get married. • A woman dreaming that her hair is very thick and that people are gazing at it: She will have a scandal. • A married man seeing a lock of hair: Will have a blessed son. • A bachelor dreaming of locks of hair: A maiden, a slave, or a maid for each lock of hair. • A woman dreaming of a lock of hair: Will have a son who will one day become a leader. The lock of hair also symbolizes a fertile year. • A man dreaming that the hair on his forefront has been dispersed: Will suffer temporary humiliation. • A white-haired man dreaming that his hair was sprinkled: Will have an ordeal. In case the hair on the right side was dispersed, he would suffer at the hands of male relatives. The left side refers to the female kind. If he has no relatives, he will harm himself. • Shaving one’s hed or cutting one’s hair short: A good dream for ordinary or poor men, meaning victory, the settlement of debts, and relief, especially if it had been done to perform a pilgrimage. However, such a dream made by a leader would mean the reverse. If he had shaved his head in any other season than that of the pilgrimage, it means that he will be deposed in a scandal and become poor. Likewise, the same dream for a rich man would mean that his wealth will decrease. • Dreaming that the head was shaved without remembering having shaved it: Will triumph over enemies and become strong. • A woman dreaming that her hair was shaved: Will be abandoned by her husband or die. • A woman dreaming that her husband has shaved her head or shortened her hair at the Kabah  (the Muslims  holiest shrine, in Mecca (Makkah)): She will settle her debts, and her wishes will be fulfilled. If her husband had done so elsewhere than in Mecca (Makkah), he will hold her captive in her house, as if he had cut the wings of a bird. It could also mean that he would slander her. • A woman dreaming that a man other than her husband has cut her hair: That man is inviting her husband to have a relationship with another woman to exact revenge from her, and she will have an argument with that enemy. • Seeing a woman’s tress or plaits of hair cut: She will never have a child. • Cutting one’s own hair without help: Will pay back debts. The beautiful fringe symbolizes money and prosperity. A man dreaming of a beautiful fringe will marry a woman as beautiful as the fringe.

Kabah Dream Explanation — (Allah’s house in Mecca.) In a dream, the holy Kabah represents the caliph of all Muslims, his chief minister, a leader of a country, or it may represent a wedding. Seeing the holy Kabah in a dream also means that one may enter it, or it could mean receiving glad tidings and dispelling evil. Praying inside the holy Kabah in a dream means enjoying the guardianship and protection of someone in authority, and safety from one’s enemy. Entering inside the holy Kabah in a dream means entering before a ruler. Taking something from inside the holy Kabah in a dream means receiving something from the ruler. If one of the walls of the holy Kabah crumbles in a dream, it means the death of the Caliph or the local governor. Entering the holy Kabah and failing to perform any of the prescribed rites in a dream means standing before Allah Almighty on the Day of Judgment having performed one’s obligations, or it could mean repenting from one’s sins. To look at the holy Kabah in a dream means safety and protection against fear. If one is given a job in Mecca in a dream, it means that he may become an Imam. Stealing anything from the holy Kabah in a dream means committing a sin. Walking toward the holy Kabah, or seeking it in a dream means correcting one’s religious standing. Seeing oneself in Mecca mixing with departed souls who are inquiring from him about the world in a dream means to die testifying to the Oneness of Allah Almighty and to the prophethood of His Messenger, upon whom be peace. Seeing the Kabah inside one’s own house in a dream means that one is still in power and living with grace. If the holy Kabah does not look right in one’s eyes in the dream, then it means adversities. If one sees the holy Kabah as his own house in a dream, the holy Kabah then represents the Imam of all Muslims who is the representative and vice-regent of Allah’s Messenger (uwbp), and it means that one truly follows the Imam. Praying on top of the holy Kabah in a dream means becoming an apostate. Entering the holy Mosque in Mecca and praying on the roof of the holy Kabah in a dream represents peace, tranquillity, presiding over others, it also means that one will become victorious wherever one goes, though with a questionable conduct, he also may follow innovation and depart from the traditions and teachings of Allah’s Messenger, upon whom be peace. Walking by the holy Kabah, or leaving it behind in a dream means going against the traditions of Allah’s Prophet, upon whom be peace, following the path of innovation, or interpreting things according to one’s own mind and liking. If one sees angels descending from the heavens to lift away the pillar of Allah’s House from Mecca and place it in a different town in the dream, it means that people have gone astray and the time of destruction has come. It also means that the pillar of the faith, the righteous guide of the believers and Allah’s vice-regent on earth Al-Mahdi will soon emerge to dwell in that town. If one sees the holy Kabah burning in a dream, it means that one has neglected or abandoned his prescribed prayers. Any changes, decrease or increase in the shape of the holy Kabah, moving of it away from its place, or changing its look in a dream will reflect upon the Imam, or the guide of all Muslims. Circumambulating the holy Kabah or performing any of the prescribed rites in a dream means walking the path of righteousness, or correcting one’s religious life as much as one does in his dream. Failure to perform some of the prescribed rites that are associated with being at the holy Kabah in a dream indicates one’s deviation from Allah’s path, and such innovation is equal to changing the direction (arb. Qiblah) of one’s prayers. The holy Kabah in a dream also represents one’s prayers, for it is the focal point of all praying Muslims. The holy Kabah in a dream also represents Allah’s House, a mosque, a community center of all Muslims, and it represents a teacher, a guide, Islam, the holy Quran, the prophetic traditions, one’s son, a religious scholar, a sheikh, a master, a husband, one’s mother, and the heavenly paradise. The holy Kabah is Allah’s House, and thereat people will be gathered and led into paradise. The holy Kabah in a dream also represents the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, the gathering of believers, the local markets and the vicinity of the holy Mosque. If one sees that his own house has become the Kabah and people are seeking it and crowds are gathering at his door in a dream, it means that he will be endowed with wisdom, gain knowledge and act upon it, and that people will learn at his hand and follow his example. Performing some of the required rites at the holy Kabah in a dream also means that one may work for someone in authority, or serve a man of knowledge, a sheikh, a renunciate, one’s father, one’s mother, or it could mean that one has a master who demands clarity, true following and hard-work from his students and disciples.

Head Dream Explanation — The person’s head is the imam or Muslim spiritual leader, his chief, his capital, or his endeavours. It also symbolizes his parents and his children if they are alive. Moreover, it symbolizes the mind or the brain. Any disease in the head applies to the dreamer’s chief. • The imam seeing his head bigger than usual: Abundance and more power. • An ordinary person seeing his head bigger than usual: More dignity. The reverse is also true. • The imam seeing himself with a ram head: He will be fair and just. • The imam seeing himself with a dog head: He will be a tyrant and treat his subjects foolishly. • A person whose parents or children are alive dreaming of having been beheaded: Bad omen. • The same dream made by a person who is afraid or condemned to death: A good dream, because you only die once. • A capitalist dreaming that his head has been severed: Will lose his capital. • Owning a head: Will have a capital of at least one thousand monetary units. • Eating one’s own head or some of the bones of the skull: Will eat up one’s capital. • Having two or three heads:  (1) If engaged in a duel: Will beat the adversary.  (2) If poor: Will get rich.  (3) If rich: Will have good children.  (4) If a bachelor: Will get married and obtain what is desired. • A merchant seeing himself upside-down: Will suffer a setback in his business. • A man seeing himself hanging upside-down:  (1) Will have a long life, but full of toiling.  (2) Will be blamed. • Hanging upside-down in front of a crowd: The dreamer has done something wrong, feels sorry about it, and is repenting, but will live long, in view of a verse in the Holy Quran: “He whom We bring unto old age, We reverse him in creation  (making him go back to weakness after strength).

If that person was a child below the age of puberty or if the dreamer was ill for a long time, relief would be followed by death. However, the same dream made by someone who is neither ill nor indebted, nor worried, nor at war would mean that the dreamer will no longer be prosperous and will be abandoned by his chief and his power will wane. • A king beheading the dreamer: The king is God, Who will save the dreamer from his trouble and help him out. • A king severing the heads of his subjects: That king will grant an amnesty to convicts. • Carrying the head in one’s hand: Good dream for a childless person or one who cannot go abroad. • Carrying an alternative head: The dreamer is fighting a plague or trying to remedy something bad he had concocted. • Seeing oneself having cut off people’s heads at one’s home: People will be driven to the dreamer and will come to his home of their own free will or will assemble there. • Seeing horns on one’s head: The dreamer is an invincible man.29 • Seeing oneself with a big head: The dreamer has a big brain. • Seeing oneself headless: The dreamer is ignorant and has little, if any, brains. • Eating the head of a dead person: The dreamer will die soon.

Raising one’s voice in a dream means unjustly presiding over a crowd of people. Hearing a human voice in a dream means chairing an important responsibility. If the human voice emanates from an animal in the dream, it denotes great benefits and particularly if the animal speaks pleasing and soothing words or words of truth. If one raises his voice above the voice of a man of knowledge, a sheikh or a teacher in a dream, it means that he will commit a sin. A weak voice in a dream represents a man. Intentionally lowering one’s voice in a dream means being indebted to someone, or it could mean humility. If a man of authority or a policeman lower his voice in a dream, it means that he maybe dismissed from his job, or he maybe reprimanded or disciplined for his misconduct. The sound produced by the ringing of coins in a dream represents temptation, allurement, or a fight between stockbrokers or money exchangers.

The howling of a wolf in a dream means a robbery, or fear of a brutal thief. The barking of a jackal in a dream means a mission of good intent, a forthcoming evil, women’s cries for help, or the cry of people who abandoned all hope . The sound of a pig in a dream means taking advantage of a stupid enemy and stripping him of his money. The sound of an ostrich in a dream means hiring a trustworthy and a courageous servant, or bringing a new employee into one’s business. Most dream interpreters dislike to interpret the meaning of the sound of peacocks or chicken and note that they mostly mean sorrow and distress, while others interpret the cawing of crows to mean separation or announcing someone’s death. However, in dream, any ugly or coarse sound represents sorrow and distress while any pleasant sound in a dream represents happiness and joy. (Also see Invisible caller)

Dead Dream Explanation —   (Also see Mortuary, Shroud, and Resuscitate.) Whatever message a dead person conveys about himself or somebody else is true, because he has moved to the realm of reality and truth  (death being the only reality), after leaving behind the world of illusions and falsehood. As a general rule, seeing a dead person in your dream doing something good means that you should do the same. If what he does is bad he is deterring you, asking you to desist from doing such a thing. Dreaming of a dead person that one knows means joy, but the best of dreams is that in which parents, grandparents, or others relatives are seen. • Dreaming of one’s dead father, whatever the scenario, except if there is something disgraceful in his appearance:  (1) Relief and benefits from an unexpected source.  (2) The end of pain and disease.  (3) The return of an absent one. • An identified dead person greeting or shaking hands with the dreamer and inquiring after his health: Will not die that year. • A dead person greeting the dreamer: He is well off in the Hereafter. • A dead person shaking hands with the dreamer: Will receive money from a desperate source. • The dead embracing the dreamer: Will have a long life. • The dead holding the dreamer tight in an unfriendly manner: Bad omen. • Talking to the dead:  (1) Long life.  (2) Reconciliation following a dispute. • Going to a grave and digging the earth with one’s nails or trying to unearth the dead: Will probe the life of the dead person dwelling in that grave to follow his pattern. • Dreaming of having died without seeing any shroud, funeral, or grave or anybody weeping: Relief from worries. • Dreaming of having died and seeing your corpse without there being any washing, weeping, or shroud: Part of your house will be demolished. • Being dead without the usual rituals, such as washing, preparation of the body, the carrying of the bier or coffin, the tears and sobbing, et cetera: A portion of one’s house or a wall or some wooden structure in it will tumble or be destroyed. In other interpretations, religious faith and foresight will dwindle and life will stretch. If the rituals and above-mentioned manifestations were there, the case would be more acute. • Dreaming of having died and been buried without anybody having cried over you or marched in your funeral procession and without having been washed: Some of the parts demolished in your house will never be erected again, unless the hero of the dream was not you. • Dreaming of having died a very long time ago: Will embark on a distant journey in the company of corrupt and ignorant folk. • A dead person informing the dreamer that he is alive and well or seeing him wearing a crown or rings or sitting on a couch: He is honoured by God in view of verses in the Holy Quran that read: “Think not of those who are slain in the way of Allah, as dead. Nay, they are living. With their Lord they have provision: jubilant  (are they) because of that which Allah hath bestowed upon them of His bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who have not joined them but are left behind: that there shall not fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. They rejoice because of favour from Allah and kindness, and that Allah wasteth not the wage of the believers.”  (“Al-Imran” [The Imran Family], verses 169–71.) • A dead person looking well, wearing white or green clothes  (green, according to Ibn Siren, being a symbol of martyrdom), and smiling in high spirits: He is so in the Hereafter. • A dead person laughing: He is forgiven by Allah in view of verses in the Quran that read: “On that day faces will be bright as dawn, laughing, rejoicing at good news …”  (“Abas” [He Frowned], verses 38–39.) • A dead person laughing, then crying or his face turning black: he did not die as a Muslim in view of a verse in the Quran that reads: “On the day when  (some) faces will be whitened and  (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieve ye after your  (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved.”  (“Al-Imran” [The Family of Imran], verse 106.) • A dead person smiling without talking to the dreamer or touching him: The dead is satisfied with him for having done certain things for him after his death. • A dead person singing: Bad omen. • A dead person dancing out of joy: He is happy in the Hereafter. • A dead person involved in any form of obscene entertainment: Bad omen. • A dead person turning away from the dreamer or having a dispute with him as if he were beating him: The latter has committed a sin or must honour a debt or an obligation of some kind. • The dead looking optimistic: God is satisfied with the dreamer. • The dead looking pessimistic and dissatisfied or turning away from the dreamer: God is not satisfied with him in view of a saying by the Holy Prophet to this effect. • A dead person appearing richer than he was in his lifetime: Is well off in the other life. • Identified dead people rising from the grave with new clothes and looking happy: Certain matters will be revived in their favour or that of their successors.

In the absence of crying, screaming, and sobbing, a relative of the dead person will marry pompously in great joy. • Dreaming of having reached the pangs of death: Contradictory interpretations, the first being that you are unfair to yourself, in view of the verse of the Holy Quran that reads: “Who is guilty of more wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allah, or saith: I am inspired, when he is not inspired in aught; and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which • Allah hath revealed? If thou couldst see, when the wrongdoers reach the pangs of death and the angels stretch their hands out, saying: Deliver up your souls. This day ye are awarded doom of degradation for that ye spake concerning Allah other than the truth, and scorned His portents.”  (“Al-Anam” [The Cattle], verse 93.)

It could also mean trouble or worries or, on the contrary, benefit to both parties. If they are alive, it means the reverse and that he does not have much affection for them. In case, according to his dream, the act took place during the Muslims  sacred months: He will go to Mecca (Makkah) for the pilgrimage. • An identified dead person making love to a living one: The latter will get some benefit from the bequeathed or the heirs of the former, be it material or otherwise. • Marrying and going into a dead woman: Will revive a dead matter as important as the deceased was beautiful. If the dreamer had not overwhelmed her or gone into her, the fulfilment would not be perfect, as penetration is a higher state than simple touching. • A woman dreaming of being wedded to a dead man who then goes into her at his or her place: Her wealth will shrink, her condition will worsen, and her life will be unstable. If the act had taken place at the dead man’s unknown residence, she would die.
