Pearl Dream Explanation
Pearls and other jewels symbolize beauty, perfection, and sexual passion for women and boys. Raw, ill-shaped, or scattered pearls are a reference to children and to good words; hidden pearls refer to exceptionally beautiful girls, slaves, or servants in view of verses from the Holy Quran about Paradise: And (there are) those with wide, lovely eyes, like unto hidden pearls
Lo! We have created them a (new) creation and made them virgins, lovers, friends
(Al-Waqiah [The Event], verses 2223, 3637.) The pearl also alludes to a male child who wont live. Perfectly shaped or aligned pearls represent the Holy Quran and good learning. Likewise, big pearls are preferable to small ones, as they represent, for example, the longer chapters of the Holy Book or financial prosperity.
