Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Anxiety; Agony; Grieve; Uptight; Worries) Distress in a dream signifies atonement for oneâs sins and restitution of his human dignity.
To experience distress in a dream also signifies regret for something wrong one has committed.
If oneâs distress dissipates, and if he is relieved from its burden in his dream, it means repentance from his wrongdoing.
In a dream, distress and sorrow mean being in love or suffering from oneâs devotion to his beloved.
