  • The vision : The vision is one of true dreams, and it always occurs in a blessed time like the time of dawn. It resembles the truth a lot and is often in a matter of good. It is possible that a person sees the Messenger of God, peace be upon him, and it is a true vision.
  • The hatred of dreams : It is the vision that contains a nightmare, in which Satan is the one who weaves it for who dreams, and it is possible for the dreamer to command the disobedience of his Lord, and this type of dreams is not explained, and the dreamer must seek refuge with God from the accursed Satan and not dream the dream to anyone yet Waking up.
  • Dreaming : It is one of the most prevalent types where it is woven by the subconscious, and these dreams are evidence of what occupies the mind of a person and everything he is afraid of, and in this case psychologists depend on the interpretation of the dream on the person's psychological state.

  • The sun : If the sun is shining in a dream, this indicates a great happiness for the seer, but if the sun was at sunset, this is a warning to me that someone close to him will betray him.
  • Bouquet of flowers : Ibn Sirin mentions, if a person sees in his dream that he collects flowers, this is a bad dream that indicates the failure of the person in the future, but if the dream is that you take flowers from another person, this is evidence of the good that will befall the seer in the future.
  • Snow dream : Snow dream is a sign of goodness and livelihood, and if a person is sick, this indicates his recovery in the near future, God willing, but if a person dreams of snow falls, this indicates the presence of an enemy after me, he will get from him.

Interpretation of dreams tafsir al ahlam from the viewpoint of psychologists

  • Interpretation of dreams tafsir al ahlam is an analysis of the many fantasies that occur during a person's sleep, some of which are clear and apparent, and some of which are disjointed that need interpretation.

Dreams, nightmares and daydreams

There is also the ability of some people to interpret dreams through the Holy Qur’an. By taking some indications from the Book of God.
