Al Nabulsi dream interpretations
 

Magi - An  Zoroastrian Dream Explanation — • Turning into a Magus:  (1) Will leave Islam behind by committing abominations or embracing other nonvalid faiths, which brings about God’s wrath.  (2) Will scrutinize everything and complicate matters, as is the nature of the Magians.
• Seeing an old Magi: An enemy who does not want to destroy his opponent.
• A Magi dreaming that he has become a Jew or a Christian:  (1) A relative change for the better.  (2) Will indulge in atheism further and be lost even more.
• Dreaming of being a Magian: The dreamer is sensual and running ex clusively after worldly matters because, writes Al-Nabulsi, the Magians are the dogs who own the wealth of this world.38



Saddle Dream Explanation — The saddle symbolizes influence, a beast that the dreamer rides, or a noble, beautiful and impressive woman. It could also refer to money.
• Being on a saddle: The dreamer will triumph in all matters and under any circumstances.
• Owning a saddle: The dreamer is married to, will marry, or will have sex with three women because, says Al-Nabulsi, he sits on a saddle like he does on the lower part of a woman’s belly and introduces his feet in two stirrups, as if they were two vaginas  (1 + 2 = 3) .
• A dog, a swine, or a donkey sitting on the dreamer’s saddle: A dissolute person is betraying him with his wife.
• Seeing matted wool or felt on one’s saddle: The dreamer’s wife is harming him.
• The saddle breaking: The dreamer or his wife will be destroyed or die.
• The saddle being removed:  (1) The dreamer will get rid of his wife or divorce her.  (2) The dreamer will be hurt in the hand.




Church Dream Explanation — For Christians, says Al-Nabulsi, the church symbolizes knowledge, work, asceticism, and reverence to the extent of crying. But the church, he continues, also symbolizes worries, unhappiness, misery, lying, decadence, slander, heresy, and places where injustice and impure recreation reign supreme. It refers to brothels, gambling places, taverns, and everything that soils the individual. It could also represent a tyrant. Still according to Al-Nabulsi, the church might also allude to the abode of demons, like the garbage place and the bathroom; the grave, the house of the adulteress; the cabaret; the place where people wail; Hell; and jail. The stronger the edifice of the church and the higher the structure, the weaker the Muslims and their religion in that place.24
• A bachelor dreaming of entering a church:  (1) Will marry.  (2) Will have a child.  (3) Will deviate from the right path, especially if he falls prostrate before the statues that are there, kisses them, takes parts in a sacrifice, or wears a waistband.
• A man praying in a church according to Christian rites: Will mix with atheists, heretics, adulterers, drunkards, or people who commit other abominations. The same would apply to a woman dreaming of attending a tumultuous marriage ceremony or a funeral at which people weep loudly, tear their pockets, and wear black.
• Remembering or mentioning Allah in a church and denouncing what the worshipers there are doing: Will work for the promotion of virtue and the deterrence of vice.
• Mentioning God, crying, and praying toward the Kabah  (in the direction of Mecca (Makkah)) inside the church: Will visit a graveyard to pray for the dead or attend a funeral service.
• Seeing a church being destroyed, burning, or undergoing some other calamity: Stronger religious faith  (for the Muslims) and defeat for the polytheists and the hypocrites.
• A church turning into a synagogue or vice versa: Some accident will befall the aliens  (non-Muslims) living in an Islamic country.
• Seeing one’s house as a church:  (1) Will talk the language of the Christians and turn one’s home into a meeting place for the whimsical, the heretics, and those who commit all sorts of sins.  (2) The dreamer’s chief will be angry with him.
• Seeing a dead person in a church: The deceased is in the Eternal Blaze, locked with those who had disobeyed the Lord.



Jesus Christ Dream Explanation — • Seeing Jesus: (1) Will be a blessed person and a great benefactor. (2) Will go a long way and travel long distances for the sake of Allah, moving from one country to another. (3) Will become ascetic and easy to content. (4) Will become a healer and know something about medicine, but if one dreams of Jesus often, he will become the unequalled healer or medical doctor of his time. (5) Will be immune from harm that year and will have nothing to fear anymore. (6) Will excel in whatever you try and no request you make will be turned down. (7) Will become prosperous and enjoy God’s blessings everywhere. (8) Something extraordinary will happen. (9) Justice and prosperity will prevail.  (10) Doubts about religion and contradictions because, reports Al-Nabulsi,31 the Jews said they had crucified Jesus. God Almighty says in the Holy Quran: “And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger—They slew him not nor crucified, but it appeared unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.”  (“Al-Nisa” [Women], verse 157.) The Christians say Jesus is the Son of God. Again God says in the Holy Quran: “Allah hath not chosen any son, nor is there any God along with Him”  (“Al-Muminun” [The Believers], verse 91.)  (11) Christians will appear in the dreamer’s life.  (12) Will be accused, though innocent.  (13) Someone will lie to the dreamer or his mother.  (14) Good tidings, because Jesus predicted the advent of the Holy Prophet.  (15) Prayers will be heard.  (16) For a craftsman: Benefits and good events.  (17) Indignation, wrath, and anger, by allusion to God’s wrath when those who had asked Jesus to produce a table spread with food from heaven, then believed neither the miracle nor Jesus himself were turned into pigs and when those who assaulted Moses on a Saturday were turned into monkeys.32  (18) Plenty of luck with companions and students or disciples.  (19) Will move from Egypt to Syria and from Syria to Egypt.  (20) Will travel frequently.  (21) Dead interests will be revived.
• Seeing the Holy Christ in a city or a mosque looking at the people there: Their hardships and difficult tests will be over because, says Al-Nabulsi, Jesus incarnates the spirit of God and His compassion.33
• Jesus appearing at a place: The place will be blessed, justice will prevail therein, the pagans will be destroyed, and the devout will triumph.
• Seeing Jesus Christ accompanied by his mother:  (1) Something very great or a miracle will occur at that spot.  (2) Deep problems, calumnies, slander, pain, sorrow, and the shifting from one place to another.
• Turning into Jesus Christ, looking like him, or wearing some of his clothes.  (1) For a ruler or a chief: Will become more powerful.  (2) For a scholar or a worshiper: Usefulness and good deeds will increase, and virtue will become more obvious.  (3) For a medical doctor or a healer: Will become more successful.
• A sick person dreaming of Jesus Christ: Will be out of danger and recover fully.
• Jesus Christ appearing sick: The dreamer will die.
• A child seeing Jesus: Will become an orphan, be raised by his mother, and lead a chaste life.



Asylum Dream Explanation — The asylum, or mental institution, symbolizes frequent travel, asceticism, the heeding of God and reading of the Holy Quran, the stoppage of income, the end of wedlock, the abandoning of children, repentances, the return of religious faith, relief from worries, and sometimes diphtheria  (the suffocation disease, to borrow the expression of Al-Nabulsi). It could also represent the bathroom, as madness was believed by the ancient Arabs to be associated with demons and because, like the bathroom, the mental institution is a place where people take off their clothes, show their private parts, and exhibit repulsive manners. For some interpreters, the madhouse refers to the school, because, there, the inpatients were educated by force, in ancient times, and taught to read and write and know the Quran. But the sanatorium also alludes to entertainment, playing, joking, and irresponsible behaviour in society or in people’s occupations, as is the case with psychopaths. A mentally disturbed person would not mind parting from his children.
• A dead person seen in a sanatorium: He is in Hell, as the madhouse “is the place of chains and shackles”  (which have now been replaced by the straitjacket).
• Being in the asylum amid sick people: Will go to jail for some legal matters.
• Being in the asylum with the mad: Will be imprisoned with criminals.
• A person in good health dreaming of being in a sanatorium: Will be ill.
• A sick person dreaming of being in a madhouse:  (1) Prolonged illness.  (2) Will die estranged, abroad, or as a martyr.  (3) For a poor person, it means that he will have enough welfare and prosperity to make him independent and no longer in need of anything from anyone.



Flesh Dream Explanation — Views on certain items of this chapter are widely divided and sometimes diametrically opposed. For instance, according to Al-Nabulsi:
• Eating somebody’s flesh: Will speak ill of such a person in his absence.
• Eating one’s own flesh: Will eat up gains. According to Ibn Siren, will eat away savings or whatever is hoarded. For Ibn Shaheen:
• Eating human flesh: Financial gains in any case. If the person whose flesh is being eaten is known to the dreamer, the latter will take a bite at the victim’s purse or property. In case the dreamer is eating such flesh voraciously and with great appetite while blood is spilling imminent, unquestionable, and huge financial gains will be achieved.
• Eating one’s own flesh: Abundance and tremendous power are in store.
• Eating the flesh of a tortured person  (crucified, hung, et cetera): Will obtain money from a wanted individual. It could also mean redemption and/or vengeance.
• Eating the flesh of one’s enemy: Will triumph over him.
• Eating the flesh of a dead person: Will speak ill of the dead, in view of a verse in the Holy Quran that says: “O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a sin. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? …”  (“Al-Hujurat” [The Private Apartments], verse 12.) According to Ibn Siren, it makes no difference whether the eaten person is a man or a woman, but the younger the subject, the more likely the dream will come true.
• Eating another person’s flesh raw: Will slander that person or backbite one of his relatives.
• Eating another person’s flesh cooked or grilled: Will swallow the other’s capital.
• Biting and snatching one’s own flesh and spitting it on the ground: The dreamer is an evil person and a slanderer.
• Eating one’s own tongue:  (1) The dreamer is the silent, concealing, and self-restrained type.  (2) The dreamer’s eloquence will help him. To come back to the general interpretation:
• A woman eating her own flesh: Will commit adultery.
• A lady eating another woman’s flesh: Will have a lesbian experience with her, or each of them will try to overpower the other physically or otherwise.



Mouse Dream Explanation — The mouse symbolizes the dreamer’s household: those who dwell in his house—his wife and children, et cetera—a debauched woman, or, some say, a devilish Jewish woman or a Jew, as related by Al-Nabulsi. It could also refer to a thief. Many mice means profit and welfare. Mice of the same color allude to women. The rat is a digging thief.
• Dreaming of a mouse playing in one’s house: Prosperity will increase because, according to the ancient Arabs, mice invade only those places that are prosperous. And only people who are not hungry can afford to play.
• Seeing mice in one’s house: Dangerous women will enter that house.
• A mouse leaving one’s house: Livelihood and blessings will decrease.
• Owning a mouse: Will have a servant because, like servants, mice share the food of the master.
• White and black mice coming and going: Long life, as the white indicate the days and the black the nights. To borrow the expressions of Ibn Siren, the black and white mice are the nights and days silently nibbling our life and body.
• Plenty of white and black mice in an inclined or jeopardized location or a well: Life will be shortened.
• Dreaming of a mouse during an afternoon nap: Will have a long life.
• Seeing a mouse in one’s clothes or bedding: Will have intercourse with an evil woman.
• A mouse gnawing on a person’s clothes: The time that passes and erodes everything.
• A mouse digging and searching: Beware of a searching thief.
• Killing a mouse: Will win over or subdue an evil or corrupt woman.
• Obtaining mouse skin: Will get some money, not much, from a debauched woman.
• Throwing arrows or stones at a mouse: Will backbite a licentious woman or exchange correspondence with her on an unholy matter.
• Catching a mouse: Will outsmart a woman and sleep with her. A man who saw himself penetrating a mouse and coming out with a date from its ass asked Ibn Siren about the meaning of such a dream. “Are you married to a corrupt woman?” asked Ibn Siren. “Yes,” said the man. “She will give birth to a devout son.”
• A mouse coming out of one’s rectum: A thankless woman will get out of the dreamer’s life.
• A mouse coming out of the dreamer’s nose or penis: Wife will give birth to a corrupt and ungrateful girl.



Toilet Dream Explanation — According to Al-Nabulsi, in his alphabetical book of dreams the toilet represents the relief, welfare, and largesse of the household or, on the contrary, the hardships, poverty, and stinginess. It also alludes to the wife whom the dreamer takes aside to an isolated place in the house to make love to. Likewise, it symbolizes the one among the slave girls or servants who is in charge of the dreamer’s very intimate affairs, massage, and hygiene or the servant who guards the house. Other interpretations include the dreamer’s treasury, his coffer where he preserves his secrets, his shop where he keeps his money, or any secluded place.
• Water overflowing from the toilet:  (1) Wife will become pregnant.  (2) The family will have surplus money.  (3) Will have worries if the water had damaged any material in the house.
• Getting soiled with the water that overflows from the toilet, which, however, has no bad smell:  (1) Coming welfare.  (2) Demands will not be met, at least not easily.
• Eating the sewage flowing out of the toilet:  (1) Will rescind or come back on something you had donated or alms you had given. The Muslims  Holy Prophet is said to have likened the one who changes his mind after donating something or giving alms to somebody who eats his own vomit or excrement.  (2) The dreamer will return to corruption and unholy means of living.
• A large and clean toilet with no smell in it: The dreamer’s wife is pleasant, virtuous, and obedient. The cleanliness of the toilet refers to her virtue and obedience, the lack of stink to her good reputation. If, on the contrary, the toilet is tiny and full of dirt, so much so that the dreamer finds no place to sit on it  (in the dream), the wife will rebel against the authority of her husband. More, if it stinks, she will be impudent and make her husband notorious.
• The depth of the toilet’s pit means that the wife knows how to manage her own affairs and look after the house.
• Seeing blood in the toilet pit: The dreamer will sleep with his wife during her menses.
• The toilet hole being filled to the brim: The wife is too careful to the extent of being austere and is preventing her husband from overspending.
• Stirring whatever is in the toilet pit with a wooden stick: There is a divorced woman in the dreamer’s house.
• The toilet pit being full without the dreamer fearing that it overflows: His wife is pregnant.
• Sweeping the floor of the toilet: Will become poor.
• Falling and drowning in the toilet pit: Will go to jail.
• Pouring milk or pissing milk or honey in the toilet: The dreamer is a sodomite.
• Being locked in the toilet: Will die.



Jew Dream Explanation — Interpreters widely differ on the sight of Jews in a dream. For some:
• Seeing a Jew, be he young or old, means:  (1) An enemy, in view of the Quranic verse that reads: “Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who believe  (to be) the Jews, and the idolaters. …”  (“Al-Maidah” [The Table Spread], verse 82.)  (2) The dreamer will inherit his uncle or aunt  (on the father’s side).  (3) The dreamer will become wise and follow the right path.
• Seeing an old Jew means an enemy who tries to destroy his opponent.
• Seeing Jews means:  (1) Treacherous enemies who pose as friends.  (2) Trouble with butchers and slaughterers.
• Seeing a Jewish woman means a fallacious life wherein promises and high hopes do not materialize.
• Dealing, befriending or accompanying a Jew means the dreamer will meet someone who denies what is right, procrastinates, and is niggardly in showing or coming out with what he has or knows, a sorcerer, a treacherous person, someone who makes you spend your money forcibly and who does not pay back what he owes without dodging and prevaricating, or an astrologer, a diviner, or a cheat.
• Becoming a Jew means:  (1) The dreamer will commit all sorts of prohibitions.  (2) The dreamer will become a heretic, believe the Jews, corroborate their statements, be lost on the spiritual plane, and show fanaticism in favour of the Hebrews.  (3) The dreamer will no longer observe the five pillars of Islam: Attesting that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger; praying five times a day; fasting during the holy month of Ramadan; paying the zakat  (a special system of religious dues and alms); and performing the pilgrimage whenever possible. The dreamer will be punished for that negligence before dying.
• Being a Jew means the dreamer will fail to perform the Muslim rites and, therefore, be punished by God while still alive and experience humiliation because, says Ibn Siren, those Jews who had committed an aggression by fishing on a Saturday  (Sabbath day), thus transgressing the injunctions of God, were turned into apes. The story is narrated in chapter VII of the Holy Quran, titled “Al-Aaraf’ (The Heights), verses 163–67.34
• Being called a Jew and resenting that appellation while wearing white clothes means the dreamer is facing hardships and expecting compassion from God and relief from worries.
• Dreaming that one is a Jew involved in a dispute means:  (1) The dreamer will deny what he owes and lie.  (2) The dreamer will mix and deal with Jews.  (3) If the dreamer is a scholar, he will conceal whatever testimony or knowledge he could come out with, because the Jews, writes Al-Nabulsi, knew the truth and concealed it.35  (4) If the dreamer has debts, he will deny them and be unjust to his folk. For others:
• Seeing Jews means:  (1) Mercy from God, because the Arabic word for Jew is  (singular, Ya-hudi, and plural, Yahud) is a homonym of “to repent,” “to turn unto Allah.” It also resembles hoda, which means “showing the right way.” Reference is made here to a verse in the Holy Quran: “And ordain for us in this world that which is good, and in the Hereafter  (that which is good), Lo! We have turned unto Thee. He said: I smite with My punishment whom I will, and My mercy embraceth all things…”  (“Al-Aaraf” [The Heights], verse 156.)  (2) A complicated matter will become clear.  (3) Evidence will appear.  (4) The dreamer will abide more closely by the Prophet’s Tradition and Islamic Laws.
• Seeing a group of Jews means the dreamer will repent.
• Seeing one Jew means the dreamer will return to the right path.



Fish Dream Explanation — There are contradictory views about the sight of fish in a dream. In many cases, it means money and abundant means; for certain interpreters, it means worries, sorrow, disease, saddening news, and death where the fish was seen in the dream, in view of a fish’s unpleasant smell, high cost, and lifeless body. But in the opinion of the author of this book, this could not apply to fish seen alive in the water, just caught and fresh, or well cooked. In general:
• Fish symbolize the ruler’s minister (s), because the sea is a king and the fish his soldiers.
• Catching a huge fish: The tyrant will perish.
• Catching big fish: Welfare and benefit.
• Catching small fish: The end of pleasure and benefits or sorrow of all kinds, because small ones have more bones.
• If the number offish could be identified: Women.
• According to Al-Nabulsi, up to four fish mean women, more than four acquisitions and money.

However, their character will depend on the beauty or ugliness of the creatures seen in the dream.
• Owning fish or similar animals of the type that are raised at home for decoration or other purposes, such as the tortoise or the sheatfish or catfish: Will be good to orphans and strangers and shelter them.
• Many, innumerable fish: Snatched money or war spoils or money earnt the hard way.
• Seeing in the sea or near riverbed an assembly of big and tender fish and catching, eating, or distributing them at will: Plenty of financial conquests inasmuch as the dreamer has caught something and will do with it exactly as he did in the dream: eating, dividing, hoarding, et cetera.
• Catching plenty of big fish with tender meat: Wealth and booty.
• For Al-Nabulsi plenty of fish means an ugly booty or acquisition and abundant wealth from a king, dangerous to accept in view of that king’s difficult accountability.
• Seeing a gathering of big and small fish: Good dream, which heralds welfare.
• Finding pearls in a fish’s stomach: Woman will give the dreamer a male child or two or more, as many as there were pearls.

• Catching a fish that has a natural weapon:  (1) Will triumph over enemies.  (2) Will befriend evil people.
• Catching invaluable fish: Goods belonging to merchants.
• Eating salted fish: Trouble and hard times.
• For some people, dreaming of salted fish translates into money and other benefits, as salt is a preserving substance.
• Grilled salted fish: A journey in search of knowledge or wisdom, in view of the verse in the Holy Quran that says: “And when they reached the point where the two met, they forgot their fish.”  (“Al-Kahf’ [The Cave], verse 61.)
• Tender grilled fish:  (1) Gains and benefits, in view of the story of Jesus Christ and the fish.  (2) Prayers will be heard.  (3) Enormous welfare, in case the dreamer is a pious person; otherwise it means punishment.
• Grilled fish falling from the sky: A sign that prayers will be heard and that the dreamer will beat his enemies and be promoted.
• Rolling small fish in wheat and frying them in melted grease: Will enter a useful business, spend honest money on it, and make a profit through hard work, then savour the particular taste of such money.

• Fishing in a container with troubled water: Nothing good anyway.
• Catching fish from a well:  (1) The dreamer is or will become a sodomite.  (2) The dreamer will run after someone’s female servant or maiden girl.

• For a deceiver, fish with tender scales: Successful designs. Deceit will be concealed and he will wickedly and stealthily get hold of people’s assets.
• Long fish without scales  (or any similar creatures): Bad or unsuccessful deeds or endeavours, fatigue, and desires that are not fulfilled, because such fish is slippery and eerie.
• Fish in water sources or springs: Good augury.
• Dead fish in the sea: Bad omen. It specifically means that a plea will not be responded to.
• A dead fish in one’s bed: Bad omen for a sailor.
• Fish in one’s bed while travelling by sea: A rough voyage is ahead during the course of which the dreamer might drown  (because he has shared the fish’s bed).
• Barbel fish  (Cyprinus bynni): Good omen for someone seeking marriage or partnership.
• A patient seeing fish: Hardships  (as humidity and water exacerbate pain).
• Buying a fish from a merchant: Will buy a slave girl or marry.
• Eating a rotten fish and leaving aside sound and tasty food: Will have prohibited sex and turn away from legitimate women.
• Trying to catch fish from a basin or a pond, which ultimately escape: The dreamer’s rival or adversary is coveting and trying to deny his claim to his own money, and it will take a very vicious dispute to re-establish the dreamer’s rights.
• Seeing a fish in a pond with its mouth wide open: Will go to jail.

• Fish floating on the water surface:  (1) Things will go easier.  (2) Someone far away will come closer.  (3) Whatever is concealed will appear, even if it is an inheritance.
• The sea opening itself, exposing its bed, and the hero of the dream taking whatever fish or jewels he wants from it: The doors of God’s hidden sciences will be open, ajar to the dreamer; he will be acquainted with the unknown and the secrets of religion and follow the right path, to his great advantage. If the fish jump back into the sea, he will familiarize himself with the rulers, who will uncover their secrets exclusively to him. If he intends to travel, he will find the best companions and have a safe journey both ways.
• Seeing fish that look like an island  (whales?): Will achieve gains through Jihad  (holy struggle) under the leadership of a good prince  (or commander), especially if the dreamer had extracted some grease from the eye of that fish or if he had eaten from its meat.
• Eating fish before it is properly prepared: Will slander people, embezzle, become an adulterer, or contract a serious disease without fever, such as paralysis or hemiplegia.
• Finding fish on the ground:  (1) Will no longer earn one’s living by plying the seas, but by travelling by land.  (2) Will have durable wealth and useful knowledge and enjoy self-sufficiency.  (3) Will bring together his family and relatives or will have a family reunion.
• Any fish with a human appearance: A reference to those who earn their living in the water, such as professional swimmers, divers, sailors, bath attendants, et cetera.

Sword Dream Explanation — The sword symbolizes a son; influence; the anger of the dreamer, and matters that come to a head. It also refers to an intrigue, welfare, kingship or ownership, or a mad or mean woman or son on whom one should never turn his back.

Dog Dream Explanation — According to Ibn Siren, dream interpreters disagree on what a dog represents in dreams. Some of them regard it as a slave or a servant, others as a despot, a terrible person, and a slanderer, if it barks. The black dog is an Arab. On the other hand, a dog could also mean a weak enemy with little chivalry, if any. The she-dog is a mean woman. If she bites, such a woman would harm the dreamer. If a dog tears the dreamer’s clothes, it would mean that a low man would backbite him. For Al-Nabulsi, the dog symbolizes a policeman of low rank, a gate-man, or a guardian, a niggardly person, a weak enemy, and a stupid, profligate, and aggressive man who never hesitates to commit foolish or criminal acts, especially if it barks; it would mean that he has an awful temper, that he is terrible. The dog is also a harbinger of fever, in view of the terrible disease Al-Shiira Al-Yamaneyyah  (literally translated, it means the Yemeni hair; probably hirsutism or hypertrichosis, more popularly known as the werewolf phenomenon, which had a correlation not with the full moon, but with Al-Shiira Al-Yamaneyyah, which was also the name of Sirius, a star of the constellation called the Greater Dog, or Canis Major, which is the brightest star in the heavens). It could also be a sign of apostasy, atheism, or despair in God’s mercy and scepticism about His messages. All dogs, in general, symbolize the worldly persons  (perhaps because, in Arabic, whereas the word kalb means “dog,” takalub means “to rush madly upon; to contend for”), as well as the humble, submissive people, the beggars, or the lads who go from door to door. In abstract terms, dogs are the incarnation of meanness, lowliness, villainy, and humiliation or humility with everlasting affection for the master and care for the latter’s money and children or in-laws. All kinds of dogs refer to wicked persons.
• Taking a dog: Will befriend a servant and love him very much.
• Taking or befriending a dog: Deviation, work stoppage, and the squandering of money.
• Being bitten or scratched by one’s dog:  (1) Will encounter disaster sustain harm, and face hardships caused by a friend or a servant.  (2) Will be harmed by one’s enemy as much as there was pain.  (3) The dreamer might fall ill.
• A dog tearing one’s clothes: A silly individual is backbiting you. If no barking was heard, it means that an enemy has silently laid a trap.
• A female dog  (or bitch):  (1) A proliferative woman keen on preserving her husband;  (2) A mean woman of low origin whose folks are troublemakers.
• A puppy is a beloved son. If he is white, it means the boy is a genuine worshiper. If black, he will prevail over his folk. In other interpretations: A puppy is the waif of a profligate or the product of adultery that the dreamer will find and raise.
• A domestic dog: An unjust and dangerous enemy.
• Seeing a saluki or greyhound: The dreamer is loyal and helpful to the sultan, who will give him a province and make him rich. The saluki is a man one can rely upon in winning a victory over his enemies, but he is mean and has no chivalry or gentlemanliness.
• Seeing a Chinese dog: Will mix with foreigners, non-Muslims.
• A hunting dog: Richness, high rank, and prestige.

• Seeing hunting dogs entering a city: Unemployment.
• Seeing hunting dogs returning from an expedition:  (1) Unemployment.  (2) The end of fear.
• A sheepdog:  (1) The dreamer will obtain certain benefits from the king or chief.  (2) A good neighbour who is keen on preserving your interests as much as he does his own.
• Dogs of the type that guard houses: Man’s wife and property are being safeguarded. If those dogs look weak, it means sickness and losses.
• The dogs appearing enraged and barking ferociously: Harm and deceit will befall the dreamer from evil people.
• Dogs that are adopted as pets for entertainment and physical pleasure  (caresses, et cetera) symbolize prosperity and good living; anything bad that would happen to them in the dream could have an adverse effect on such a good living in reality, along with sorrow and the disappearance of pleasure.

• Seeing the dog of Ahlel Kahf in another country: The ruler or the regime will be changed.



Wine Dream Explanation — The ancient Arabs interpretation of dreams involving wine and drunkenness was mainly based on relevant verses in the Holy Quran. “And the fruits of the date-palm, and grapes, whence ye derive strong drink and also good nourishment. Lo! therein, is indeed a portent for people who have sense.”  (Al-Nahl” [The Bees], verse 67.) “They question thee about wine and gambling. Say: in them is great sin, and  (some) benefit for men; but the sin is greater than profit…  (“Al-Baqarah” [The Cow], verse 219.) “O ye who believe! Wine and gambling,  (dedication of) stones, and  (divination by) arrows are an abomination of Satan’s handiwork: Eschew such  (abominations), that ye may prosper.  (“Al-Maidah” [The Table Spread], verse 90.) “Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of wine and gambling, and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from  (His) worship. Will ye then have done?  (“Al-Maidah” [The Table Spread], verse 91.) “A similitude of Paradise with that which those who keep their duty  (to Allah) are promised: Therein are rivers of water unpolluted, and rivers of milk of which the taste never changes, and rivers of wine—a joy to the drinkers—, and rivers of clear-run honey. There are for them all kinds of fruits, and Grace from their Lord.  (Can those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell forever in the Fire and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels  (to pieces)?”  (“Muhammad,” verse 15.) “And two young men went to prison with him. One of them said: I dreamed that I was pressing wine. The other said: I dreamed that I was carrying upon my head bread whereof the birds were eating. Announce unto us the interpretation, for we see thee of those good  (at interpretations) … “He said: The food which ye are given  (daily) shall not come unto you, but I shall tell you the interpretation are it cometh unto you. This is of that which my Lord hath taught me. Lo! I have forsaken the religion of folk who believe not in Allah and are disbelievers in the Hereafter … “O my two fellow-prisoners! As for one of you, he will pour out wine for his lord to drink; and as for the other, he will be crucified so that the birds will eat from his head. Thus is the case judged concerning which ye did inquire.”  (“Yusuf” [Joseph], verses 36–37 and 41.)59 “And the drunkenness  (stupor) of death will bring truth  (before his eyes): This was the thing which thou wast trying to escape!”  (“Qaf’ [A letter with an enigmatic meaning], verse 19.) A description of those who will deserve Paradise: “For them there is a known provision: fruits! while they are honoured in the Gardens of Delight  (Paradise), on couches facing one another; a cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them, white, delicious to the drinkers, wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby. And with them are those  (women) of modest gaze, with lovely eyes,  (pure) as they were hidden eggs  (of ostrich).”  (“Al-Saffat” [Those Who Set The Ranks], verses 41–49.) In another description: “Nay but the record of the righteous is in ‘Illiylin’. Ah, what will convey unto thee what ‘IIIyin’is! A written record attested by those who are brought near  (unto their Lord). Lo! the righteous verily are in delight. On couches, gazing, thou wilt know in their faces the radiance of delight. They are given to drink of a pure wine, sealed,  (and) whose aroma is musk—For this let  (all) those strive who strive for bliss—And  (that wine is) mixed with water from Tasnim’, a spring whence those brought near to Allah drink.”  (“Al-Mutaffifin” [Defrauding], verses 18–28.) “O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when ye are drunken, till ye know that which ye utter, nor when ye are polluted save when journeying upon the road, till ye have bathed. And if ye be ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have touched women, and ye find not water, then go to high clean soil and rub your faces and your hands  (therewith). For God doth blot out sins and forgive again and again.”  (“Al-Nisae” [Women], verse 43.) “On the day when ye behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursing and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and thou  (Muhammad) wilt see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the Doom of Allah will be strong  (upon them).”  (“Al-Hajj” [The Pilgrimage], verse 02.) It follows that wine in a dream symbolizes easy and sinful gain and power and secret marriage. And there is a marked distinction between drinking wine, getting drunk, and being drunk without having absorbed anything.
• Pressing wine:  (1) Will serve a lord and handle great matters.  (2) Someone will die in the house where the wine was pressed.
• Drinking wine: Will make big profits but not without committing a grave sin.
• Drinking wine without anybody trying to share it with the dreamer has two diametrically opposed interpretations:  (1) Will make plenty of money through sin.  (2) Will make legal profits.
• Competing with someone over wine and drinking it: Someone will oppose the dreamer and have a strong argument with him inasmuch as he was getting from the wine.
• Drinking much or being in the midst of a large party of people drinking wine: Enmity and conflict. Bad dream anyway, because too much drinking leads to drunkenness, which is cursed for being the underlying cause of troublemaking, antagonism, and deadly fights or battles.
• Wine for a person seeking partnership or marriage: Consent, because of the idea of mixing and blending.
• Obtaining date wine: Suspicious money.
• Drinking date wine: Opportunistic gain.
• Drinking wine mixed with water is a controversial dream.  (1) Profit of which some is lawful and the rest illicit.  (2) Thorny gains.  (3) Will take money from a woman and fall victim to a conspiracy or some sort of intrigue.
• Selling wine:  (1) The sale of something illegal.  (2) Usury.  (3) Lack of benefit.
• Selling wine whose flavour and smell are changed: Bad omen.
• Wine dealer: Symbolizes the intriguer and hostile person.
• Manufacturing wine that ferments: The dreamer is trying to earn money legally, but will fail and resort to unholy practices.
• Discovering a river of wine flowing without interruption and drinking from it without getting drunk: A perpetual source of income. If the flow is halted, nothing good should be expected from such a dream.
• Discovering a wine river: intrigue. If the dreamer dives in it, he will be the victim of such an intrigue inasmuch as he ventured into that river. But it could also mean that authority will undergo certain changes.
• Being drunk without having taken anything: Worries, fear, and terror.
• Getting drunk: •  (1) The dreamer has money and power but is ungrateful.  (2) No more fear, because nothing can frighten a drunken person.  (3) Ignorance.
• Getting drunk and tearing one’s clothes: The dreamer is a prosperous and wealthy person who cannot cope with blessings and exercise self-restraint.
• Spilling wine on the ground: The dreamer is squandering money.
• Discovering some hidden wine: Will find a treasure. A man told Ibn Siren that he saw himself drinking wine, his face blackened and his head shaved. “Your face looked black because you are the master of your folk,” said Ibn Siren.  (The words aswad and Muswadd in Arabic, which mean “black” and “blackened,” resemble sayyed or sada, which mean “master” or “has become master.”) “Your head being shaved,” he continued, “means that your folk will desert you and you will no longer command. “As for drinking wine, you will have a woman.” Once a governor told Ibn Siren he dreamed that he was holding a cup of wine in one hand and a glass of milk in the other, to which the great interpreter replied, “Milk means justice, but for you wine means that you will lose your post.” And the dream came true.
• Dreaming of a wine store signifies:  (1) Energy after weakness or laziness.  (2) Grief, sorrow, and worries or deep trouble, in view of the irresistible yet unnecessary spending that takes place in it and the items therein, which could bring about the kind of severe punishment prescribed by Islam.  (3) Paradoxically, it could also mean the end of grief, sorrow, worries, et cetera.  (4) The time has come for whatever the dreamer had been promised to be fulfilled.  (5) For the sick, the hour has come.  (6) The dreamer will immediately start exercising his authority.  (7) Will go astray after finding the right path.  (8) Possible intrigue if the person is in trouble. The etymology of the word khamr, or fermentation, whence comes khamira, or yeast, in Arabic plays a great role in interpreting related dreams, in view of the notion of fermentation, the thing that matures, or the process of mixing or blending. For instance, in the mind of Al-Nabulsi,  (6) above is interpreted the way he did because the time is ripe for the sultan  (or titular head) to exercise or start the familiarization process with his new office.



Women Dream Explanation — The sight of a woman, in general, is a good augury, especially if she is sprightly, adorned, and complacent, with a smiling face. And the best woman to be seen in a dream is the unknown, young, virtuous, and very dark-skinned Arab woman, according to Ibn Siren. An unknown old and ugly or imperfect woman symbolizes life on earth, which is the essence of temptation and intrigue. Such a life appeared to the Holy Prophet in the shape of a woman when he ascended beyong heaven, one night, to meet Allah. Hence the belief that women are temptation and intrigue. Similarly, worldly life was seen by many people in their dreams as an old, imperfect woman. It follows that a poor man dreaming that such a woman is considering his situation should expect luck to smile on him again. Flowers in his garden will blossom, his dead fields will start greening again, and he will become self-sufficient. If ill, he shall recover. If forgetful of life after death, he shall come back to his senses. The same dream applied to the public means that the people will reap harvest during the year in which they had lost hope or in the year that immediately follows it. It could also mean that a spreading and vicious war will come to an end and that normalcy will be restored.
• An unveiled and adorned old woman: A sign that success will be quick.
• A grim-faced old woman: Prestige will go.
• An ugly old woman: Things will turn upside-down to the dreamer’s detriment.
• A naked old woman: Scandal.
• A veiled old woman: Regret.
• An old woman entering the dreamer’s house: Luck and success in life.
• An old woman leaving the dreamer’s house: Will lose everything on earth.
• An old Muslim woman: An honest life.
• An old non-Muslim woman: A life full of sins.
• An old woman complying with the dreamer’s desires: Objectives will be fulfilled insomuch as she was complacent.
• An old woman disobeying the dreamer’s orders despite his pleas and insistence: Hurdles. The dream is more likely to come true if the old woman was an unidentified one. However, Sheikh Abdul Ghani Al-Nabulsi has a completely different concept of dreams involving old women, a concept the author of this book finds more rational, since the Arabic word for old woman is ajouz from ajz, which means “incapacity” or “inability.” It follows that an old woman represents: (1) Incapacity, especially if she appears sick. (2) Declining fortune. (3) Sorrow. (4) The Hereafter, since senility is the reverse of liveliness. (5) Wine, since in Arabic the word khamr, or wine, could refer to an old woman.60 (6) A cow, since again in Arabic, an old woman is sometimes referred to as a cow. (7) Wickedness and deceit. (8) Gossip. (9) Fertility after despair.  (10) Sterile land.
• A thirsty old woman: Drought.
• A weak old woman: A year of drought. The reverse is also true.
• A rejuvenated old woman: The end of drought.
• An old woman entering a patient’s room: Possible death.
• An old woman coming to a pregnant lady: Good augury, because old women traditionally look after children and mothers after delivery.
• A man handling some important matter dreaming that he was in the company of or having sex with an old woman: Will fail and objectives will not be fulfilled.
• A veiled old woman with only the eyes visible: Hardships and regret.
• An ugly old woman: Intrigue and war.
• An old atheist woman: Illicit gains.
• An armed old woman: Lawful gains and joy.
• A woman dreaming that she had become old: Prestige, respect, and virtue.
• An unknown old woman: A dry year.
• People marvelling at an old woman descending from heaven: The year of the dreamer’s gains.
• An old woman having ceased to have sex dreaming that her vigour and sexual passion are back and that she is having legitimate intercourse: Will be more successful in both religious and worldly matters. In the event of forbidden sex she will be more successful only in earthly matters.
• A smiling and enthusiastic young woman flirting with the dreamer or allowing him to dominate or command her: Marriage or recovery from a stomach or any other disease.
• An unknown young, beautiful, neat, pious, and almost ascetic woman: The Hereafter and whatever is done to merit Paradise, such as honest living, good deeds, et cetera. But she could also symbolize:  (1) Ephemeral life.  (2) Money or assets that do not stay, as beauty withers away.  (3) Dead earth.  (4) A devastated house.
• A known woman with the above description: A reference to the person herself, a lady sharing the same name or who resembles her, or her opposite number.
• Seeing a woman so beautiful that the dreamer imagines her to be a creature from Paradise as described in the Holy Quran  (houreyyah, or nymph with enormous black and pristine eyeballs contrasting with her skin, like a deer): Will die as a martyr for the sake of God.
• Seeing an earthly creature with that description: Being saved from any kind of trouble, money, a ship, a camel, or a caravan, et cetera, the dreamer will come back from a journey bringing welfare; any wish or request will be granted by the ruler or chief; crops will grow; and so on and so forth.
• A perfect woman: An allusion to what her name refers to on earth or in the other world, for a woman is a world in herself or to whoever enters her life; she is delight and passion and ecstasy. In terms of the Hereafter, she reforms her man on the religious plane. She could also symbolize power or the ruler or chief himself, because she governs her man by enticing him and arousing his passion, making him strive and toil like a slave to try to make her happy. Analogies are also drawn between women and earth and the grave, as man comes from earth and returns to it; gardens, the fruit-bearing tree; the year  (in view of what it conceives and delivers); cows  (because of the milk) and ewes; the rain; and, revolting as it may seem to contemporary women’s liberation activists, anything that a man rides or steps on or that is hollow like a box, or used for storage, be it a ship, an animal, a sole or a complete shoe, a carpet or rug, or a sink. She is also represented by a glass bottle and by the toilet. Likewise, the woman symbolizes the prison; the partner, as she shares man’s wealth and pleasure; any secret, the underwear; the ink pot; and the seat.
• Talking to or mixing, joking, or playing with a pretty woman who has entered one’s house:  (1) A fruitful year.  (2) Welfare and joy.  (3) An end to poverty and to poor luck.  (4) Liberation from prison.
• A woman commanding people and inviting them to obey God: Piety.
• An authoritarian woman addressing the public and telling them what they should and what they should not do: Religious benefit.
• A woman as described above opposing the public or touching or kissing the audience or showing her private parts: Intrigue or a proving matter in which those seen getting anything from her will perish in view of verse 35 of the Quranic chapter “Al-Anbiyae”  (The Prophets), which says: “Every soul must taste of death, and We try you with evil and with good, for ordeal. And unto Us ye will be returned.”
• A large number of women being moved to a certain place on horse or camelback and carrying weapons or tools: Workers will flock to the area.
• Having a dispute with a woman, especially if she holds a public post or enjoys a high social position, then resenting her:  (1) Will lose one’s bread.  (2) Will fade out.  (3) Well-being and power will wane, but after a while everything will be back to normal.
• Seeing a dishevelled woman—an absolute stranger: Will imminently lose something. But if she is pretty, will find it again.
• Kissing a lady: Will lose something.
• Having sex with a woman: Bad omen.
• Carrying a beautiful woman:  (1) Recovery from a disease.  (2) Release from prison.  (3) Relief.
• A religious-minded man seeing an adulteress or an atheistic woman: Good augury and blessings.
• A profligate seeing an adulteress or a dissolute woman: His faith will weaken further; he will indulge in sins, vice, and evil.
• A sterile woman becoming pregnant: Welfare and reform in one’s life and in the Hereafter.
• A group of women looking at the dreamer and one of them inviting him to join in:  (1) Bad reputation, though innocent.  (2) Will obtain what he is aiming for, but later on.  (3) His enemies will not have the upper hand.
• A dispute among numerous women: Strange events will disturb some people. The reverse is also true.
• A young man smiling at the dreamer: The revival of dead matters.
• A fat woman: A fertile or fruitful year.
• A slim woman: A poor year.
• An old woman: Nothing good should be expected from such a dream, unless she is unveiled and adorned.
• Negresses61 coming to the dreamer: Lots of legitimate benefits.
• A black woman: A dark night. A bad omen, unless she belongs to someone.
• A white woman: A night softened by moonlight.
• A woman being sold: Power will wane and stability will be shaken, but not forever.
• Seeing a woman other than those the dreamer sees when he is awake: The dreamer will lose some of his assets, then find them again. Killing such a woman would mean that a large chunk of the dreamer’s wealth will go. Having sex with her means all his wealth will be lost.
• A lady seeing an old woman:  (1) A reference to her own efforts.  (2) Her endeavours will fail.
• A lady seeing a young woman: An enemy, whatever she looks like.
• A young woman dreaming that she has become old: She is a virtuous one.
