House Dream Explanation
— (Cage; Dwellings) In a dream, one's house
holds different meanings. One of them is the wife
. If one sees himself entering his house
in a dream, it means that he will get married, or have sexual intercourse with his wife
. Building one's own house
in a dream means that a sick person will recover from his illness. If such construction is hard and if it is customary in that family to bury its dead within the compound of the same property, then it means the death of a sick person in the family. If no one is sick in that house
and the construction is accompanied with music and celebrations in the dream, then it means adversities, trials and hardships. If under such circumstance the person in the dream is unmarried, it means marriage, and if he is married, it means that he will marry off one of his daughters. If one sees himself tied up and imprisoned inside a house
in a dream, it means that he will receive glad tidings, or it could mean good health and prosperity. If one sees himself carrying a house
over his shoulders in a dream, it means that he takes care of a needy woman or a wife
. If one sees his house
made of gold in a dream, it means that a fire will burn it down. If the house
has no roof, whereby one can see the skies, sun or moon in a dream, it represents the marriage of a woman from that household. If one sees a big house
within his own house
in a dream, it means that a righteous woman will live their or move into that family to become a blessing for such a house
. If there is a tunnel under such a house
in the dream, it denotes deception or that a perfidious person is having access to that household. A house
without lights in a dream represents a woman of evil character, and if a woman sees that house
in her dream, then it represents a man of evil character. Demolishing one's house
in a dream means a fight within that family. If one sees grass growing inside his house
in a dream, it means a wedding. (Also see Cage; Dwellings; Glass house)
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
• 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.

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
• 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.
A Known House Dream Explanation
— If he sees a house
which is known to him, it symbolizes his position and condition in this world. Its features – be they pleasant or unpleasant, such as the house
being straight or crooked, spacious or narrow, orderly or disorderly-is a reflection of his behaviour and character.
A Well in the House Dream Explanation
— If a person dreams that he has dug a well in his house
or he merely dreams of a well present in his house
and such a well swells with water it means that Allah will grant him much barakah in his wealth and such wealth will become a means of earning him increased livelihood without much toil and hard work. In this case if the well is seen sending froth all its water until it becomes exhausted, it means he will lose much of his wealth with very little remaining.
An Ox in the House Dream Explanation
— If an ox is seen entering his house
and he ties it up in such a manner that it is under his control it means he will acquire wealth which he will guard closely. Thus, he will become prosperous.
