Dead Rats dream interpretations
 
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 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.

• 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.)

If one does wash the garment of the deceased person in the dream, it means the redemption of that person.
