Ants Dream Explanation
— (Army) In a dream, ants
represent weak and covetous people, an army, a family, or longevity. Seeing a colony of ants
entering a city in a dream means that an army will occupy that city. A colony of ants
in a dream also represents a heavy populated area. Seeing ants
over one's bed in a dream means having many children. If ants
leave one's house in a dream, it means that someone in the family will leave that house. If there is a sick person in a house and one sees ants
flying in a dream, it means the death of such a person. Ants
leaving their colony in a dream means dying away of the population in that area, or that such a town may become a ghost town. Seeing ants
leaving their nest in a dream also means adversities or distress. Though in this case, they represent the small and hard working people. If a sick person sees ants
walking over his body in a dream, it means his death. Flying ants
in a dream also mean hardships during a journey. Seeing winged ants
in a dream means a war and destruction of a large army. Ants
in a dream also may signify prosperity. They also represent the person seeing the dream or members of his family or relatives. Understanding the language of ants
in a dream means sovereignty, leadership and prosperity. If one sees ants
entering his house and carrying food in a dream, it means prosperity in that family. If one sees ants
leaving his house and carrying food with them in a dream, it means poverty. Seeing ants
coming out of one's nostrils, ears, mouth or any part of his body and rejoicing at that sight in the dream means martyrdom. However, if one seems unhappy to see that in his dream, it means dying in sin. Flying ants

I interpret it to mean that we will rise in honor in this world and in the hereafter and that our religion will be firmly established." Thus, he took from the name Rafi' the meaning
of honor and exaltation and from the name of Ratib Ibn Tab the meaning
of a blessed religion.

Orange, Bitter Dream Explanation
— The same interpretation applies to bitter orange as for citron or Adam’s apple. But the meaning
is more acute for both pros and cons. However, most interpreters resent the bitter orange in view of the fact that its Arabic name, naranj, comprises the sound nar, which means “fire.”
European Dream Explanation

Priest Dream Explanation

• The dreamer will be praised by people but face extraordinary hardships, including hard living, fear, and terror, as the word for priest in Arabic is raheb, from rahba, meaning
“awe and terror.”
• The dreamer is shrewd and deceitful.
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 man’s 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 dreamer’s 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 dreamer’s 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 wife’s vagina or ass.
• Seeing a large private apartment made of clay or concrete in one’s 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.
