Fire Dream Explanation
— In general, any dream involving fire
or Hell means that an intrigue is imminent. But for the ancient Arabs, fire
also symbolized power or the one in power, in view of its essence and properties. Fire
can be beneficial and can be harmful, like the sultan. It also refers to faults and sins and statements or deeds conducive to them. At the same time, it alludes to the return to the right path, that of wisdom, Islam, learning, and the Quran, as it can be used to light the way. Likewise, to the ancient Arabs fire
was a sign of wealth and the good quality of life. Putting it out meant avarice and poverty. But it also symbolized the jinn whom God created from fire
, poisons, the sword, and intrigue if it produced a thunder like sound and had flames and smoke. Sometimes, it represented the torture inflicted by the sultan, because “it is God’s torture.” It also alludes to plagues like swarms of locusts or diseases or epidemics like smallpox or the bubonic plague.
