— Death in the dream symbolises corruption of a perbond Deen while there will be glory, rank and honour for him in the world if such death is not accompanied by mourning, weeping, the carrying of a bier or corpse or the act of burying.

Some interpreters have said that perhaps he will weaken in the matter of his Deen and he will lose his insight and prudence.
