Home Dream Explanation
The distinction is very vague in Arabic between the words dar and bayt, both meaning
house or home. But after consulting a knowledgeable colleague (a Moroccan ambassador and man of letters), the author assumes that dar is more likely to mean a house as a structure or an apartment block and bayt a room, an apartment, or simply home. However, in the ancient Arab texts the writer often jumps from one meaning
to another, and I have taken real pain trying to disentangle them, as usual. Home symbolizes the mans wife sheltered under his roof and to whom he goes, whence the expression He went home. Therefore, home and wife are synonyms. The door is her vagina or her face, the closet or the safe a maiden, like the dreamers daughter, whom he does not penetrate, as they are covered or hidden places in which he does not sleep. The servants quarters symbolize the servant (s). The place where cereals are stored is the mother, who used to keep the dreamer alive and let him grow by feeding him milk. The toilet represents those servants who are in charge of cleaning and washing or the dreamers wife, whom he embraces and penetrates when isolated, i.e., away from his children and the rest of the household.
Looking from the kowwa (a kind of small window in old houses): The dreamer is in the habit of contemplating his wifes vagina or ass.
Seeing a large private apartment made of clay or concrete in ones home that was not there before: A good woman will enter the house. If the apartment is plastered or made of bricks, an obscene and hypocritical woman will appear.

is during the winter season and when rain is imminent.
