News: The Dream Interpreter

Some dream interpreters agree that dreams are seen by the soul and are understood by one’s consciousness. Shaikh Abdul Ghani Nabulsi explains in his book Ta’atir-ul Anum that “the soul resides within one’s heart, and the functions of the heart are dictated by one’s brain. When one falls asleep, his soul becomes like an extended ray of light, or like a sun, where he can see what the angel of dreams reveals to him through the effulgent light of his Lord. When one’s senses come to wakefulness, it is as though a cloud has come to cover the sunlight. When one wakes up, he may remember through his soul what the angel of dreams has shown him.” Someone said: “Spiritual feelings are greater than one’s physical awareness. For the soul represents the truth, and the senses can only recognize what is physically perceivable.”
For a dream interpreter, it is also necessary to know that the soil is different from one land to another because each soil is watered by a different quality of water. That is why dream interpretation may vary from one land to another. As we explained earlier, dream interpretation requires concise knowledge that must be based on the fundamentals of one’s religion, inner spiritual values, and moral and cultural traditions. Dreams also are influenced by the atmospheric condition of the land and culture. For example, if one who lives in a hot country sees snow or hail in his dream, it means rising prices or drought. On the other hand, if one lives in a cold country and sees snow, rain, and hail, it means a good harvest and prosperity.
In India, for example, mud means money, while for another country it may mean adversity. Also in India, breaking wind in a dream means good news, while in another country it may mean hearing bad words. In one out of four countries, fish in a dream means marriage, or money, while in other countries a fish means a bad stench. Quince, which is known in Persian as Safarjal in a dream means comfort, beauty, and glory for an Iranian person, while it means travels or departure for an Arab. Eating a dead animal in a dream means acquiring unlawful money for those who believe in the impermissibility of doing so. As for those who see no harm in eating the flesh of a dead animal, when they see that in a dream, it means benefits or profits.
Timing is also crucial. If one who is stricken with cold symptoms sees himself warming up in the sun, or near a burning bush in the wintertime in a dream, or if he sees himself wearing winter clothing, or using hot water to wash with, etcetera in a dream, it means recovering from his illness, while doing so in the summertime means health complications or adversities. The meanings of dreams also differ in values. For instance, if a devout worshiper sees himself wearing a soldier’s uniform in a dream, it means invalidation of his worship, while if a non-fighting soldier sees that, it means going to war and victory. As for the rest of the people, it means a dispute, an argument, and corruption.
