A vineyard in a dream is also interpreted to represent a wealthy woman. Cutting branches from a grapevine in a dream means receiving money from a noble woman. Thus, an espalier in a dream represents a generous woman. A grapevine in the wintertime in a dream represents a woman who has lost her wealth, though one still thinks that she is rich.

Grape Dream Explanation
— Grape juice, especially wine, symbolizes women, in view of its delicious taste. It also represents sex, because it is like the semen. Likewise, it refers to a generous and useful man, a good-doer, owing to the multifarious benefits of grape. He could be a ruler, a scholar, or a person who gives money to the needy. White grapes
in the right season allude to the best of this world, like money that will come earlier than expected. In winter, grapes
allude to rain. To the ancient Arabs, every bunch of grapes
was one thousand dirham's (currency units). Black grapes
during the right season symbolize fear and disease; otherwise they mean trouble and worries. They are also a harbinger of cold weather. Grapes
were believed by the ancient Arabs to be harmful. They also thought that no benefit could be derived from the black color and hated black grapes
in any case. Among other things, they argued that the grape was originally white, placed near the son of Nuh (Noah). When his father cursed him, it suddenly turned black. Certain dream interpreters felt that the black grape meant nothing but money that will not last. Separate from the bunch, it symbolized extreme fear or chills. Others regarded the black grape as a not so bad dream, in view of a verse in the Holy Quran: “And of 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 also thought so because the Prophet Zakareyyah (Zacharia) used to find it at Mariam’s (Mary’s) place. However, in interpreting such dreams special care should be given to the season in which the dream took place. Was it the time when vineyards blossom? Was it the harvesting season? Was it the period of the year when the vineyards go dry? The fate of the dream or of the person dreamed of will depend on those vagaries.

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 interpretation]. He said: The food which ye are given [daily] shall not come unto you but I shall tell you the interpretation ere it cometh unto you. This is of that which my Lord hath taught me … O my 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 36–41.)

This is only true if he was not in the habit of drinking alcohol in this world. However, wine in a dream could be a good sign for one who is intending to get married, because of its water content.

If a man sees his hands dyed with henna in a dream, it means that he keeps praising his Lord.

If one's hands are tattooed with henna in a dream, it means that he cheats to acquire his earnings. Eventually, he will be exposed and his opponents will rejoice at his misfortune.

(Also see Grapes)
Fruit Dream Explanation
— (Dried fruits; Fresh fruits) In a dream, a sweet tasting fruit represents blessings, knowledge or money. Even a sour tasting fruit means the same when it suits the taste of the person eating it in his dream. When a sour tasting fruit does not agree with the perbond taste in the dream, then it means unlawful earnings or aggravation of his illness. Eating or drinking any by-product that is made of fruit in a dream means debts or facing challenges in a foreign land. Seeing one's most preferred fruit in a dream represent profits earned from one's own sweat and such profits will equal the amount of efforts exerted to earn them. A large size fruit in a dream represents earnings that are not yet free from due alms. A fruit without seeds or hull in a dream represents success and lawful earnings.

Wild berries in the mountains or prairies in a dream represent innate arts, abilities and knowledge given directly from Allah Almighty and no other teacher has a claim in it. Figs in a dream represent the best of fruits in a dream. Fresh fruits in a dream signify money that does not last, while dried fruits represent savings.

Dye Dream Explanation
— (Color; Expose; Hair; Henna; Hide; Gray hair) Applying henna or a dye to one's hair or hands in a dream represents a pharmacist, celebrations, glad tidings, tenderness, or it could mean compassion. Dyeing one's hair in a dream also means veiling or protecting one's personal life and that of others. To dye the gray hair of one's beard in a dream means ostentatiousness and adorning one's merchandise or deeds to make them look better than reality. Dyeing one's hair in a dream also connotes a display of blessings and favors, or it could mean dictating one's conditions to his enemy, if the person is in such position. However, if not, it means difficulties, aggravation, distress, debts or dropping off one's ties with those who love him. Interpreting woman's dyeing of her hair in a dream is the same as that of a man. To dye one's gray hair in a dream means strength, dignity and valor. Applying henna dye to one's head and not to one's beard in a dream means emulating the traditions of Allah's Prophet, upon whom be peace. To dye both the head and the beard in a dream means concealing one's poverty, though one will keep asking people to pay him respect or to recognize him in their circles. If one's hair accepts the dye in the dream, it means regaining one's status, though with less emphasis on his pride, or it could mean that he will make contentment his new ornament or trim. If one uses a dye other than what is commonly used, and if it works in the dream, it means that he will be saved from an adverse condition through miraculous events. If the new dye does not work in the dream, it means that his true nature will be exposed and he will have no solutions to protect himself from defamation or public abuse. If he tries to dyes his hair with dry henna clay, and if his hair still accepts it in the dream, it means that he is an ignorant person, though he will ultimately repent for his sins, amend his actions and improve himself.

If one dips his hand into a laying corpse in a dream, it means that he will witness a conspiracy. If one sees his hands dyed in a dream, it also means that he has reached the end of the rope with his money or business. If one sees his dyed hands wrapped or bandaged in a dream, it means that he will lose a trial or a fight with his rivals, or that he will fail to meet such a challenge again. Dyeing only the finger with henna in a dream represents branches of dates or clusters of grapes
. In general, dyeing one's hands with henna or one's hair with regular dye as a makeup in a dream represents joy for the husband and wife as long as they do not exceed the norms. Dyeing one's hands and feet in a dream means redecorating one's house. If a poor person sees himself dyeing his hands or hair in a dream, it means that he will cover up the loss of his ablution during prayers or during his reading of the Holy Quran or during other ritual occasions where he is required to have ablution before proceeding. It could also mean that he cares little about attending his prayers. As for women, dyeing means happiness, new clothing, receiving gold, or a wedding celebration. If the dye exceeds the required surface of the hands or the feet in the dream, it means being struck with fear and worries caused by one's business or friends. If a man sees himself in a dream dyeing his hair or beard with other than henna, it means that he will suffer from what he fears most. Dyeing or suppressing one's feelings for a sick person means recovering from his ailment. Dyeing one's hair black in a dream means hiding one's bad conditions, spoiling the benefits of one's deeds, or hiding one's evil intentions. This is taken from the practice of Egypt's Pharaoh who sometimes dyed his hair black, thus trying to hide his appearance and ignorance.
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.
