Elephant Dream Explanation
Dream interpreters differ about what the elephant
symbolizes in dreams. Some of them regard it as a gigantic foreign king, feared, cool, and heartless, but well trained in the arts of war and capable of lifting extraordinary weights. By contrast, others say it is a good and extremely tolerant, patient, and generous king. The elephant
also symbolizes hardworking people or the working class, in view of its nature and hard tasks, the devout, the learned, and the noble. Certain interpreters feel it represents an obese woman or a cursed man, because it belongs to the category of those metaphor hosed by God, according to religious beliefs. A man told Ibn Siren he dreamed that he was riding an elephant
, to which the great seer replied, The elephant
is not an animal that Muslims usually ride. Im afraid you are no longer a Muslim. The elephant
is also seen as something great and famous but useless, because people can neither eat its meat nor milk it. More, the elephant
is said to be the animal of the Prince of the Inferno. Especially for women and for pious people, those who seek the Hereafter, the sight of an elephant
never augurs well. It is not the same for worldly individuals.
