Cow Dream Explanation
— The cow
symbolizes the year in view of the story of Yusuf (Joseph) in the Holy Quran. A fat cow
is a fertile year and a thin one an austere year. It also represents wealth and prestige and a woman, par excellence, commensurate with her shape. A milk cow
is a useful woman. A cow
with horns is a woman of marginal value. The cow’s belly symbolizes assets without value, her navel string the wife’s umbilical cord or an allusion to the wife’s pregnancy. A lost cow
is a wife lost to her husband.
• Trying to milk a cow
that prevents the dreamer from doing so by using her horns: The dreamer’s wife will hate him and rebel against him. If the cow
accepts, in the dream, being milked by another man, that man is betraying the dreamer with his wife.

with a blaze (white color) on her face: Hardships at the beginning of the year, as the word forefront—in Arabic ghorra—is the homonym for beginning.

• Riding on an identified cow: Richness and escape from trouble and all sorts of worry.
• Entering one’s own house on a cow’s back and tying her there: Will obtain a fortune, coupled with plenty of joy and the end of worries, especially if her color was black. Conversely, if she hit the dreamer with her horns, the dreamer would lose and never be safe from his family and relatives.
• Having sex with a cow: Will enjoy a year of undue prosperity. The same interpretation of horses colours should apply to cows, which, as mentioned, refer to women or years.

• An identified number of cows entering a city, following each other: Years commensurate with the size of the cows and in the same order. If they entered a coastal city together or at random similar ships will arrive. Otherwise, they would be a series of intrigues very much alike, as the cows faces resemble each other. Yellow or red cows would automatically mean disease and epidemics.

• A pregnant cow: A hopefully fertile year or the dreamer’s wife will become pregnant.

or a bull: Will rip up a man, especially if blood was seen in the dream. And that man could die.
