Earth Dream Explanation

Dirt in a dream represents money, but it could also mean poverty. Digging the earth in a dream means digging a grave for a sick person. Digging the earth in a dream also means a journey, and its collected dirt means profits from one's journey. If digging the earth is interpreted as seeking marriage, then the earth itself represents one's future wife. Generally speaking, digging the earth in a dream is bad, because it unveils what is hidden. The dirt itself represents woman's property. To shake the dust off one's hands in a dream means business losses, poverty and humiliation. It also means remitting savings to their rightful owners. Walking on dirt means soliciting money. Collecting dirt means saving money. Sweeping
dirt in one's house means to swindle money from one's wife. Earth also represents mans longevity. If one sees his wife carrying a bag of dirt in a dream, it means a suspicious pregnancy.

If a merchant sees his merchandise covered with dirt in a dream, it means depression and unsalability of his merchandise.
Toilet Dream Explanation
— According to Al-Nabulsi, in his alphabetical book of dreams the toilet represents the relief, welfare, and largesse of the household or, on the contrary, the hardships, poverty, and stinginess. It also alludes to the wife whom the dreamer takes aside to an isolated place in the house to make love to. Likewise, it symbolizes the one among the slave girls or servants who is in charge of the dreamer’s very intimate affairs, massage, and hygiene or the servant who guards the house. Other interpretations include the dreamer’s treasury, his coffer where he preserves his secrets, his shop where he keeps his money, or any secluded place.
• Water overflowing from the toilet: (1) Wife will become pregnant. (2) The family will have surplus money. (3) Will have worries if the water had damaged any material in the house.
• Getting soiled with the water that overflows from the toilet, which, however, has no bad smell: (1) Coming welfare. (2) Demands will not be met, at least not easily.
• Eating the sewage flowing out of the toilet: (1) Will rescind or come back on something you had donated or alms you had given. The Muslims Holy Prophet is said to have likened the one who changes his mind after donating something or giving alms to somebody who eats his own vomit or excrement. (2) The dreamer will return to corruption and unholy means of living.
• A large and clean toilet with no smell in it: The dreamer’s wife is pleasant, virtuous, and obedient. The cleanliness of the toilet refers to her virtue and obedience, the lack of stink to her good reputation. If, on the contrary, the toilet is tiny and full of dirt, so much so that the dreamer finds no place to sit on it (in the dream), the wife will rebel against the authority of her husband. More, if it stinks, she will be impudent and make her husband notorious.
• The depth of the toilet’s pit means that the wife knows how to manage her own affairs and look after the house.
• Seeing blood in the toilet pit: The dreamer will sleep with his wife during her menses.
• The toilet hole being filled to the brim: The wife is too careful to the extent of being austere and is preventing her husband from overspending.
• Stirring whatever is in the toilet pit with a wooden stick: There is a divorced woman in the dreamer’s house.
• The toilet pit being full without the dreamer fearing that it overflows: His wife is pregnant.
the floor of the toilet: Will become poor.
• Falling and drowning in the toilet pit: Will go to jail.
• Pouring milk or pissing milk or honey in the toilet: The dreamer is a sodomite.
• Being locked in the toilet: Will die.
Earth Dream Explanation
— (Country; Farm; Floor; Glob; Land; Locality; Place; Property) In a dream, each locality has a particular meaning that relates to its substance and conditions. To see the land of the great gathering on the Day of Resurrection in a dream means the fulfillment of a promise, or that the person seeing the dream is worthy of keeping secrets. Earth in a dream also means becoming rich after poverty, or having peace after experiencing extreme difficulties. It also means a marriage to a beautiful young virgin, or it could mean receiving guidance and attaining a high ranking and an honorable position in the world. To see the glob being carried on the back of a whale or a steer without changing its conditions in a dream means that the king of the country will be dethroned. He will either step down or be replaced by his minister. Sweeping
the floor and caring for the floor mat or carpet in a dream means to care for one's community or family. Earth in a dream also represents one's mother, or the governor of the land. Working in a farmland in a dream, seeing its tools, elements, seeds, water, plowing, harvesting, landscaping, blossoming of its flowers, their fragrance, light, whatever positive or negative results one sees therein in a dream represent such success or failure. Seeing an unknown land could denote one's mother, child, husband, wife, partner, guardian, a servant, or it could mean one's heirs. Earth in a dream also may mean arguments, knowledge or clarity of speech. Earth in a dream also represents the element of the world, as the skies represent the element of the hereafter. If both the earth and the skies are seen simultaneously in a dream, it means that they can never be joined together, as the world and the hereafter do not exist in one place. If the top soil of the land is cracked in a dream, it means that the land is rich and arable. Such cracks in a dream also signify the rise of invented religious dogmas and the spread of evil and innovation. Seeing the stretch of the land in a dream means the release of prisoners, or in the case of a pregnant woman, it means the nearing of her delivery. If one sees an earthquake and the destruction of life and property in a dream, this element represents straying from the path, pride and heedlessness. If the earth appears to fold over him in a dream, it means losing one stature in the world, divorce or losing in business. If the earth changes into iron or rocks in one's dream, it means that one's wife will not bear children, or it could mean changing one's trade or profession. If the earth opens and swallows him in a dream, it means that he is ashamed of something he did, or it could mean hurdles in one's business, a journey, or imprisonment. If the earth looks like a desert land in the dream, it may mean that such a person may undertake an urgent trip. Beating the ground with a stick in a dream means taking a business trip. Eating dirt in a dream means earnings an equal amount of money to what one eats in his dream. If the earth cracks and opens, and if a beast comes and speaks to the people in their own tongue in a dream, it means that people will witness a miracle or a happening that will bewilder everyone. This may also mean nearing the end of one's life. Digging the earth in a dream also means plotting and deceiving others. If the earth speaks good words to someone in the dream, it means that he or she will attain whatever they are told. On the other hand, if the earth reprimands someone in the dream, it means that he must amend his actions for the better and ask for Allah's forgiveness and guidance.
House Dream Explanation
— Whatever happens to houses or apartment blocks in a dream applies to their dwellers in reality. The walls represent men and the ceilings women, as men uphold women. The corridor refers to an influential servant who can solve or complicate matters. A man’s house symbolizes his person, his ego, and his body, because it is his address, with which he is identified. Likewise, it alludes to his glory, his name and reputation, and his well-being. It could also refer to his money, which he relies or falls back upon and his clothes, as he puts them on. In case it represents his body, the gate or door of the house is the dreamer’s face. It is easy to imagine what the components of a house refer to when the house alludes to the wife. Assuming that the house symbolizes his livelihood and money, the door is the source of that livelihood. When we compare the house to a man’s clothes, the door is the edge of such clothes. The house gate or door is the father of the family. The mortise and tenon symbolize the female and male sexual organs as they fit into each other. Locked together, they represent the husband embracing his wife. By extension, the mortise and tenon could also refer to the couple’s two children, a boy and a girl, to two brothers, or to two persons sharing the same house. As for the door’s lock and handle they symbolize the wife or the servant. The supports of the door are the male children, the slaves or servants, or the brothers and assistants. For Ibn Siren, the keyhole is the dreamer’s ear, meaning probably the house servant who reports everything to the master. The unknown house is the Hereafter, especially if it has a revealing name like Darussalam (The House of Peace).
• A sick person seeing himself in an unknown house: Will die peacefully.
• A healthy person seeing himself in an unknown house: (1) Will go to Mecca (Makkah). (2) Will engage in Jihad or Holy Struggle. (3) Will become ascetic. (4) Will acquire learning. (5) Will endure hardships with stoicism. (6) Will give alms.
• Building a new house: (1) If ill, the dreamer will recover and become healthy. (2) If there is a sick person in the house, that person will recover, unless the dreamer is in the habit of burying the dead in his house, in which case the new house would mean the tomb of that patient. The same bad interpretation would apply if the house was built in an impossible place, if it was painted in white, or if funereal flowers were seen in the dream. (3) If a bachelor, the dreamer will get married. (4) The dreamer will find a husband for his daughter and let her stay with him, if the girl is old. (5) The dreamer will have a concubine.
• A sound person building a house with concrete or clay in a place he knows: Welfare and benefits.
• A sound person building a house with concrete or clay in an unknown place: The dreamer will do or has already done something for which he will be rewarded in the Hereafter. If the house was built with bricks, gypsum, and lime, it would mean that a sin will be committed or that the dreamer has amassed a fortune through sin and will regret it in the Hereafter, owing to the fact that fire plays a major role in the manufacturing of such constructing material. The dream would have a happy ending if the dreamer destroyed the house before waking up.
• A sick person or someone who has an ill relative or friend building a house: A tomb.
• A house of unknown construction material in an unknown location and with unknown people, isolated from the rest: The Hereafter, especially if dead persons the dreamer knows are seen in it. Entering it means that the dreamer will die, unless he comes out again, in which case it means that he will come near death but escape.
• Entering a new house in an identified location, among other houses and with complete amenities but whose owner is unknown: (1) If poor, will get rich. (2) If rich, will get richer. (3) If worried, will be relieved. (4) If having disobeyed God, will repent. If the landlord is known, the dream will apply to him. In case the house was made of concrete or clay, the dreamer’s fortune will be blessed; otherwise, if the house was made of bricks, which entered the fire, the gains would be illicit and sinful. The dimensions of a house—big or small—allude to the dreamer’s condition: living comfortably or not, being generous or not, et cetera.
• The plastering of the house refers to the dreamer’s religion. Its perfection or imperfection is the way he handles matters. Its finishing is his joy.
• An iron house: Its owner will have a lot of prestige and live long.
• A house made of gold: Fire will break out there.
• Coming out angry from one’s house: Will go to jail in view of a verse in the Holy Quran: “And [mention] Dhun-Nun,30 when he went off in anger and deemed that We had no power over him, but he cried out in the darkness, saying: There is no God save Thee. Be Thou glorified! Lo! I have been a wrongdoer.” (“Al-Anbiya“ [The Prophets], verse 87.)
• Entering the neighbour's house: Will become his confidant or, if the dreamer is immoral, he will betray the neighbour with his wife and in his livelihood.
• A bachelor building a house: Will marry a high-class woman.
• Seeing a house from afar: Life will give the dreamer what he desires, but far away or after a long time.
• Entering one’s house made of concrete or clay and situated amidst other buildings: Will make an honest living.
• Being ousted from a concrete house and feeling humiliated or diminished in any way: Will lose as much in life.
• An old house crumbling on the dreamer: Will inherit.
• The apartments of a house or rooms of an apartment symbolize the dreamer’s women.
• According to Christian dream interpreters, says Ibn Siren, sweeping
the floor of one’s house means deep worries or sudden death. Others think it is the reverse.
• A house being demolished: Its owner will die.
• Buying a new house: Plenty of welfare.
• One’s house larger than usual: More well-being and fertility. And the dreamer will enjoy welfare through a woman.
• Carving or decorating a house: Quarrels and rivalry will take place in that house.
• Demolishing a new house: Evil and worries.
• Being in a new, unknown plastered house in an isolated area and hearing some evil talk: A reference to the dreamer’s grave.
• Being kept prisoner in a house in a residential area whose doors are all locked: Welfare and good health.
• Carrying a house: Will sustain a woman.
• Reclining on a house: A woman will cater to the dreamer’s livelihood.
• Entering a house and the doors getting locked behind: Will refrain from disobeying God in view of a verse in the Holy Quran: “And she, in whose house he was, asked of him an evil act. She bolted the doors and said: Come! He said: I seek refuge in Allah!…” (“Yusuf’ [Joseph], verse 23.)
• Getting out of a narrow house: Worries will be left behind. A house without a roof wherefrom the dreamer could see the sun rising or the moon: A woman will get married therein.
• Seeing a tunnel under the house: A cunning man, especially if the tunnel was made of concrete or clay, in which case it would mean that the man’s wickedness is in the religious field.
• A bright, well-illuminated house: A polite and virtuous woman.
• A dark house: An ill-tempered and mean person.
• Entering a house sprinkled with water: Trouble with a woman and worries as much as there was humidity and mud, but which will disappear.
Numbers Dream Explanation
— • One symbolizes the unity of God, the ego (The dreamer himself), or the boss.
• Two symbolizes the parents (father and mother) or two witnesses or a double confirmation that the dream will come true and is a sign that the dreamer is not alone. It could also mean that there is a second person, something concerning the conjoint. It is a reference as well to marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, et cetera, the end of an ordeal, and triumph over enemies: in view of verse 40 of the Quranic chapter “Al-Tauba” (Repentance): “If ye help not (your leader), (it is no matter): for God did indeed help him, when the unbelievers drove him out; he had no more than one companion. They two were in the cave. And he said to his companion, “Have no fear, for God is with us : then God sent down His peace upon him, and strengthened him with forces which ye saw not, and humbled to the depths the word of the unbelievers. But the word of God is exalted to the heights: for God is Exalted in might, Wise.” Duality or duplication is also indicated.
• Three is a blessed and favourite number, according to some, and the reverse for others: a genuine promise (according to the Quranic chapter “Hud” [The Prophet Hud]: “But they did hamstring her. So he said: Enjoy yourselves in your homes for three days: (Then will be your ruin): (Behold) there a promise not to be belied!” (verse 65); a reference to some religious matter; and a reference to sex.)
• Four means prayers will be heard; financial gains; integration; four corners, the four seasons; the four elements: fire, air, earth, and water; and marriage. If, according to Al-Kirmani whose interpretations are supported by Ibn Shaheen, three is bad and four is good, it is because of another verse (07) of the Quranic chapter “Al-Majadalah” [She That Disputeth]: “Hast thou not seen that Allah knoweth all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth? There is no secret conference of three but He is their fourth …”
• Five is a reference to the Muslims five prayers, and coming promotion.
• Six is a reference to the days of creation, hence some accomplishment, health, and marriage.
• Seven is a controversial number seen as a bad omen by the ancient Arabs and a good one by other cultures or even by Arabs who based their interpretation on other sources than the Holy Quran. For Ibn Shaheen it referred to Hell, in view of the Quranic verse that says: “It hath seven gates, and each gate hath an appointed portion” (“Al-Hijr,” verse 44) or a pilgrimage whose days will not be devoid of trouble or worries. A pregnant woman having such a dream will divorce, because according to the prevailing traditions, it was the right of the divorcee to stay in her former husband’s house for seven days after delivery. In other cultures and myths and for certain Arab interpreters seven is generally a good augury, a symbol of epochs and time or the seven days of the week, the seven cycles of human life; birth, possibly after only seven months in the womb, a name given to the child at the end of the week, and the teeth appearing on the seventh month and which are renewed seven years later, and a symbol of the seven planets, the seven cows, and the seven ears of wheat mentioned in the holy books.
• Eight is a mysterious number without any precise meaning and whose interpretations were widely different. In any case, it was not considered by the ancient Arabs a lucky number because of the Quranic verses that read as follows: “And as for Aad, they were destroyed by a fierce roaring wind, which He imposed on them for seven long nights and eight long days so that thou mightiest have seen men lying overthrown, as they were hollow trunks of palm-trees.” (“Al-Haqqah” [The Reality], verses 06–07.) Dreaming of that number also meant the dreamer will be closer to the ruler or some prominent and important man or that suspicions about certain persons were well founded, again in view of the verse that reads: “ (Some) will say: They were three, their dog the fourth, and (some) say: Five, their dog the sixth, guessing at random; and (some) say: Seven, and their dog the eighth. Say: (O Muhammad): My Lord is best aware of their number. None knoweth them save a few. So contend not concerning them except with an outward contending, and ask not any of them to pronounce concerning them.” (“Al-Kahf” [The Cave], verse 22.)
• Nine is generally unwelcome to the ancient Arabs, in view of a verse of the Holy Quran that says: “There were in the City nine men of a family, who made mischief in the land, and would not reform.” (“Al-Naml” [The Ants], verse 48.) It also refers to revelations and evidence against the enemies: “O Moses, We did give nine clear signs: Ask the Children of Israel: When he came to them, Pharaoh said to him: O Moses! I consider thee indeed to have been worked upon by sorcery!’“ (“Al-Israe” or “Bani Israel” [The Children of Israel], verse 101.) A religious person dreaming of that number means his faith will weaken and he might have a tendency to join those who refuse to abstain from slandering the companions of the Holy Prophet. It is also a reference to birth, since the human being comes to life after nine months in the mother’s womb, and a reference to death, because it is the last number.
• Ten is a divine symbol of the Lord and a reference to perfection: “Perform the pilgrimage and the visit (to Mecca (Makkah)) for Allah. And if ye are prevented, then send such gifts as can be obtained with ease, and shave not your heads until the gifts have reached their destination. And whoever among you is sick or hath an ailment of the head must pay a ransom of fasting or alms giving or offering. And when ye are in safety, then whosoever contenteth himself with the visit for the Pilgrimage (shall give) such gifts as can be had with ease. And whosoever cannot find (such gifts), then a fast of three days, while on the pilgrimage, and of seven when ye have returned; to make it a perfect ten. That is for him whose folk are not present at the Inviolable Place of Worship. Observe your duty to Allah, and know that Allah is severe in punishment.” (“Al-Baqarah” [The Cow], verse 196.) It also means wishes will be fulfilled on earth and in the Hereafter: “And when We did appoint for Moses thirty nights (of solitude), and added to them ten, and he completed the whole time appointed by his Lord of forty nights; and Moses said unto his brother: Take my place among the people. Do right, and follow not the way of mischief-makers: And when Moses came … (“Al-Aaraf’ [The Heights], verse 142.) Ten is also a reference to sex.
• Eleven, like ten, means wishes will be fulfilled (in view of the verse from the Quranic chapter “Yusuf’that reads: “When Joseph said unto his father: O my father! I saw in a dream eleven planets and the sun and the moon, I saw them prostrating themselves unto me …” [verse 04].) It also symbolizes brothers.
• Twelve refers to a fertile year. It also means wishes will be granted, but after some delay, in view of verse 36 of the Quranic chapter “Al-Taubal” (Repentance), which reads: “Lo! The number of the months with Allah is twelve months by Allah’s ordinance in the day that He created the heavens and the earth …”
• Thirteen is an abhorred number due to its being the most jinxed day in the month and the most complicated day counting from the start of any problem.
• Fourteen means luck will smile on the dreamer, desires will be satisfied, and relief will come.
• Fifteen means the end of some hardship; fertility; justice will be restored; endeavours will not fail.
• Sixteen means completion and that desires will be fulfilled throughout the period.
• Seventeen means that the dreamer will refrain from corruption and perform a pilgrimage.
• Eighteen is a bad omen and means contact with kings and other prominent personalities.
• Nineteen represents hostility with some people, in view of certain verses in the Holy Quran: “Him shall I fling unto burning.—Ah, what will convey unto thee what that burning is!—It leaveth naught; it spareth naught. It shrivelleth the man. Above it are nineteen.” (“Al-Muddath-thir” [The Cloaked One], verses 26–30.) It is also a reference to obedient aides who are all ears.
• Twenty represents more power, triumph over enemies, and the fulfilment of wishes, in view of the Quranic verse: “O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred …” (“Al-Anfal” [The Spoils of War], verse 65.)
• Thirty means in the event of adversity, separation will be fast and the dreamer will triumph over his enemy, in view of the Quranic verse: “… and the bearing of him and the weaning of him is thirty months …” (“Al-Ahqaf” [The Wind-Curved Sand Hills], verse 15.)
• Forty means the dreamer will run into difficulties, hesitate, and feel lost, in view of the Quranic verse: “[Their Lord] said: For this the land will surely be forbidden them for forth years that they will wander in the earth, bewildered. So grieve not over the wrongdoing folk.” (“Al-Maidah” [The Table Spread], verse 26.)
• Fifty is a bad omen, which could mean that the dreamer’s life is over.
• Sixty is a bad number; it refers to the exigency of sin offering (something to be offered as an expiation for sin), in view of the Quranic verse: “And he who findeth not (the wherewithal), let him fast for two successive months before they touch one another; and for him who is unable to do so (the penance is) the feeding of sixty needy ones …” (“Al-Mujadalah” [She That Disputeth], verse 04.) It could also mean a journey, in view of the Quranic verse: “And unto Solomon (We gave) the wind, whereof the morning course was a month’s journey and the evening course a month’s journey …” (“Saba” [Sheva], verse 12.)
• Seventy means things will go through but with some delay and refers to fear of the authority. It is a bad omen if it refers to plants, in view of the Quranic verse: “And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits.”42 (“Al-Haqqah” [The Reality], verse 32.) It also means the dreamer will, in vain, seek the indulgence of evil, nonforgiving people, but will be pardoned by God, due to the Quranic verse: “Ask forgiveness for them (O Muhammad), or ask not forgiveness for them; though thou ask forgiveness for them seventy times Allah will not forgive them. That is because they disbelieved in Allah and His messenger, and Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.” (“Al-Baraah” or “Al-Taubah” [Repentance], verse 80.)
• Eighty means the dreamer will wrongly accuse somebody of committing adultery and might be flogged, in view of the Quranic verse: “And those who accuse honourable women but bring not four witnesses, scourge them (with) eighty stripes and never (afterward) accept their testimony—they indeed are evildoers.” (“Al-Nur” [Light], verse 04.) It also could mean a meeting or blessings.
• Ninety means the dreamer, if eligible, will marry high-class women and benefit from them, in view of the Quranic verse: “Lo! this my brother hath ninety and nine ewes …” (“Sad,” verse 23.) It also indicates hardships and financial difficulties.
• One hundred means the dreamer will triumph over enemies and see his wishes fulfilled, in view of a verse in the Holy Quran: “… So if there be of you a steadfast hundred they shall overcome two hundred …” (“Al-Anfal” [The Spoils of War], verse 66.) It also could refer to an accusation of adultery in view of the Quranic verse: “The adulterer and the adulteress, scourge ye each one of them (with) a hundred stripes …” (“Al-Nur” [Light], verse 02.) If it refers to grain, the dream means welfare, blessings, comfort, and prosperity, in view of the Quranic verse: “The likeness of those who spend their wealth in Allah’s way is as the likeness of a grain which groweth seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains …” (“Al-Baqarah” [The Cow], verse 261.) It could mean the dreamer will have an edge over others.
• Two hundred means the dreamer will be vanquished, in view of the Quranic verses: “… If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred …” and “… So if there be of you a steadfast hundred they shall overcome two hundred …” (“Al-Anfal” [ The Spoils of War], verses 65 and 66.)
• Three hundred means aspirations will be fulfilled or goals will be achieved after a very long time, in view of the Quranic verse: “And (it is said) they tarried in their Cave three hundred years and add nine.” (“Al-Kahf’ [The Cave], verse 25.)
• Four hundred means the dreamer will triumph over enemies.
• Five hundred means things will be stalled.
• Six hundred indicates joy and the fulfilment of wishes.
• Seven hundred means achievements will come, but at the end of the dreamer’s life.
• Eight hundred indicates victory and power.
• Nine hundred means the dreamer will be defeated by enemies.
• One thousand indicates power and victory in view of the Quranic verse: “… and if there be of you a thousand (steadfast) they shall overcome two thousand by permission of Allah …” (“Al-Anfal” [The Spoils of War], verse 66.)
• Two thousand is a bad omen.
• Three thousand indicates power and victory in view of the Quranic verses: “Allah had already given you the victory at Badr, when ye were contemptible. So observe your duty to Allah in order that ye may be thankful.
