News: Understanding Key Notes for Dream Interpretation

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Traditions interpreting the dream by subject require further understanding of one’s religious and socio-cultural environment. For example, if one is offered a lemon in a dream, and if it did not connote money or a child, in this case, a lemon in one’s dream means fraud, hypocrisy, and falsehood. If one sees his arm longer than usual in a dream, it means that he likes to show off his charities or deeds, or it could mean generosity.
This idiom is also used in the saying of God’s Prophet, upon whom be peace, when he said to his wives, God be pleased with them: “Those who have longer arms amongst you will follow me first. “In her case, Zainab Bint Jahsh was the first to die among his wives. Qualifying a sickness in a dream to mean hypocrisy came from the expression, “sick at heart,” also meaning poor judgment or emotional disturbance. Sickness and hypocrisy are also noted in the expression, “He is a sick person,” meaning a disgusting person.
Sometimes people use the expression, “Both his words and actions are sickening,” to mean someone whose promise cannot be trusted. In the Holy Qur’an, God Almighty describes the hypocrites saying: ”There is a disease in their hearts, and God has increased their disease.”(Qur’an 2:10).
In some traditions, people use the expression, “The lion sneezed, and a cat came out of his nose.” This tradition was transmitted from the folkloric tales about the arc of God’s prophet Noah. In this sense, in dream interpretation, snot came to mean an impudent and insolent child or a newborn. In the same sense, ejaculated fluid and snout came to mean a son. (See Nasal mucus, p. 300.)
Equating slandering with a curse, God Almighty says in the Holy Qur’an: “Those who slander chaste women-are cursed.” (Qur’an 24:23). The common proverb says, “If you live in a glasshouse, do not cast stones at others.” Here again, the interpreter made an association between one’s own faults, weakness, and imperfection, and those of a glasshouse. Concerning severing relations with one’s family, God Almighty says: ”We broke them up into sections on this earth.” (Qur’an 7: 168). Equating washing one’s hands with hope, people also say, “I washed my hands from it”, meaning I have no further interest in it or any hope in it.

Interpretation by Contraposition some dreams are interpreted to mean the opposite when the elements are related. This tradition comes from examples such as crying when one is extremely happy; or when laughing in the face of adversities; or seeing the sun and the moon fighting and interpreting it as a fight between two people; or calling a flood an enemy and an enemy a flood, because both are destructive; or when eating a fig in a dream to mean regret and regret to mean eating a fig, because the fig tree is accursed in some traditions; or when one sees himself dead in a dream, though even if he does not have the look of dead people to mean losses or destruction of part of one’s house; or interpreting locusts as warriors and warriors as locusts, because of the destruction they both cause to a land; etcetera.

Interpretation by Correlation, Relativity, and Approximation, In this case, laughing in a dream means sorrow, while smiling in a dream means politeness and correct conduct. Crying in a dream is usually interpreted as happiness, but when accompanied by intonation or wailing, it means a calamity. As for putting grease over one’s hair, dream interpreters infer the meaning of adornment, while if it dribbles over one’s face, they call it hypocrisy, fawning, or adulation. As for saffron in a dream, they interpret it to mean praises or commendation, while should its color manifest in one’s body or clothing, then they call it an illness.
As for feathers in a dream, they call them wealth or comfort, but when one sees himself flying with wings, they interpret it to mean travels or rising in station, depending on how high one reaches in his dream. If one’s hand is cut off in a dream, and if he sees himself carrying it, it means having a brother or a son, while if he loses it in the dream, it means adversity or loss of a brother or a son.
If a sick person sees himself in a dream walking out of his house in silence, it means his death and funeral, while if he speaks in the dream, and it means that he will recover from his illness.
