Islamic Dreams

Dreaming of Islamic visions represent your need for clarity in context to wisdom passed down from prophets. Ru’yaa will provide you with good visions while Hulum will push forward bad dreams onto the dreamer.

For every dream, you will break it down to three parts according to Islamic interpretations.

“There are three types of dreams: a righteous dream which is glad tidings from Allah, the dream which causes sadness is from Shaitan, and a dream from the ramblings of the mind.” (Sahih Muslim)

  4. I dreamt that I am standing at the front of the Masjid Nabvi in a glass wall room, the green dome and the minarats are in front of me. I started to decorate this place with banters and paper flowers. Apparently am waiting for the doctor to come and issue medical certificate to go in.

  5. I dreamt that my deceased mother had pain from cancer, and I cried to God to heal her then I woke up. What is the meaning of this dream?

    1. You need to pray and give charity on behalf of your mother. The state you see the deceased in is the actual state they are in in death. Prayers for her forgiveness and mercy must be plenty and do righteous deeds so she can reap the reward of having raised a good child.

  6. in my dream I saw a friend, well are not quite good friends though, stealing and trying to eat my food in my own room but I caught him and took the food from him ans I asked him to leave my room. He was singing insuation song as he was leaving. I am confused because this person is not in the same town as me now.

    1. I am the same person, I am making corrections to my earlier post.
      “well are not…” should be well we are not…
      “ans” should be and.
      insuation should insinuation.

  8. I sleep and I hear verses of Quran. Today I heard verses of Quran outside my body . Like a radio loud. What does it mean. I am awake .

  9. In my dream I saw myself, my two boys n my ex husband.
    We were all outside near water where we could see ducks in the distance. As we walked away from the water, we noticed my 15 month old son walk towards the water. Before we could do anything, he had emerged in the water. My eldest son immediately jumped in to help him then his dad jumped in but I stood helpless and voiceless. Then I saw bubbles in the water and both my son or my husband never found my baby.
    What does this mean?

  10. Assalam Alaikum

    I dreamt that I had two beautiful babies. It seems like I had lost one and had one more making it two and I was taking it home for my husband to see.

    My next dream, I saw my husband as the devil and I was going to cut of his head. I then thought this is how the devil makes you kill people.

    I wanna know the islamic interpretation of my dream.

    I saw that flood came and everything has been drowned. water was everywhere but me and some more people (whom i dont know) are on a piece of wood (actually sort of takhta). then water came up to that and i start to astghfar then water goes down. plz tel me its interpretation.

  12. Salam, I am a practicing Muslim and offer my prayers plus tahajad regularly. I recite the Quran daily and try to live a pious life….

    I saw a dream last night and the details are so clear that I can remember each and everything.

    So I see that am meeting the family of the guy who is interested in me. His father is a pious guy and in the dream I could feel that he is very keen on talking to me . I have a very generic but pleasant chit chat with him ,,,, in the meantime it’s dinner time and everyone is invited to have food, the father takes the head chair and every one occupies a seat , there is just one chair left and it is on his extreme right ,., I am standing there confused as to where I should sit…. He calls me v politely and offers me the right hand side chair ….. I am still confused thinking it’s the mothers chair but she is also sitting there on another chair.

    I walk up to the right chair and sit there,,,,, the food is prepared by me ,,, that has fresh smelling bread and curry and another onion curry too…. I am just waiting for him to give me feedback on the food I have prepared. I serve the father with bread andi could see the mother is eating the onion curry and she seems to like it …. I am a bit confused too as I know the guy I like wont eat onion but In my mind I am satisfied that his family likes it ,,, the father keeps on talking to me politely and the dream ends ….

  13. What does it mean if you are driving through town and it is raining and then you come to closer into town you see police cars and then one police officer comes to you and asks for insurance details but doesn’t check them and let’s you off. Also I noticed the other police officer told this officer to go after me to ensure.
    I felt at unease when I woke up and didn’t like the experience.

  14. Hello. Am feeling so down. I saw a dream where I was angry and arguing with my deceased mother who was trying to explain something and looked sad. Please tell me what this means. I’m scared and feel horrible.

    1. Aminath, I believe that your dream about the conversation with your dead Mother, represents God. The dead Mother is your separation from him. He is telling you truths that you won’t believe or listen to while you are awake. Your fear and sadness represent how it feels to be separated from him. Jeremiah 29:11-13 1 peter 1:9 James 2:10 Romans 2:6-8 Hebrews 4:16 1 John 4:18 & 19 Matthew 7:13 You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. 14. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult a few, and only a few ever find it. Give your life to Jesus and study the Word of God. Ask God to reveal himself to you. God loves you mightily!!!!!

  15. Hello, i don’t know if you explain dreams for muslims but i had this weird dream and i would like you to help me understand it. This guy and I have been in love since two years now but most of the time its an on and off relationship. I would also say its a unique relationship not necessarily in a good way, we are both extremely proud and have failed to be direct and honest towards each other since we both see it as a sign of weakness.. i haven’t been speaking to him since the beginning of summer 2014 since we do not understand each other or try to. We are certainly a mystery to each other. Anyway, this is the not point. Last night i had this terrible dream that he married another girl, an ordinary girl that was with us in school but hasn’t been a problem to us. That is not the point, the point is that they got married and i was extremely sad, in the dream it was clear that we loved each but couldn’t be together because he had to get married.. i wanted to stop the wedding but i woke up. This relationship has brought ups and downs to my life mostly downs since i was hurt numerous of times. He never knew he hurt me since everything was always so mysterious and secretive. I don’t know if you get me but we loved each other deeply but we were just to proud to admit it .. therefor it led to games. I hope you can help me understand what this dream actually means, thank you.

  23. I would like an Islamic interpretation of the following dream, please.

    I am sitting in one of those armored prisoners bus along with few other people. We are all wearing white jump suits (like the orange jump suits that prisoners wear). All of a sudden, some people from outside starts shooting at us/bus. The bullets just bounce backs. Even though I should be scared, I am not scared and I am very calm like nothing is happening.

    NOTE: I want to change job/career and been praying to Allah to guide me. The job/career I am considering could be very risky and unsafe but I feel that it will provide me with a better job/career in the future.

    Please tell me what my dream means?
    Thank you.
