Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Declivity) Descending a mountain, a hill or an elevation in a dream represents losses, migraine headache, humiliation, passing from a higher to a lower condition, separation between husband and wife, losing oneâs job, demotion, degradation, abandoning oneâs religion, or it could mean adversities in general. Descending a steep slope in a dream also means safe landing, worldly blessings and nomination for a religious duty. Descending from a mountain in a dream means relief from adversities or change in oneâs conditions. Coming down from an old ladder in a dream means investing in a business to earn nothing from oneâs efforts.
If the ladder breaks half-way through in the dream, it means losing to oneâs adversary.
