Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Channel; Water passage; Watercourse) In a dream, a canal represents a woman, money or a scholar. Running a watercourse or a channel in a dream means getting married, building a business, or it could mean finding a job and serving oneâs family and community.
Seeing a canal in a dream also means sufferings caused by a member of oneâs family. Water channels in a dream represent servants or housekeepers.
A canal in a dream also could signify a lavatory, sewage, a marketplace, or it could mean a shop.
Thus, digging a canal in a dream also could mean prosperity and spending money to support oneâs family and dependents. Blocking a canal in a dream means divorce, separation between husband and wife, cutting off oneâs blood ties, leaving oneâs homeland, or separation from oneâs clan. Blocking a canal in a dream also means quitting oneâs job or cancelling a debt, or it could mean closing a business.
Seeing a watercourse running inside oneâs house in a dream means blessings and prosperity. Urinating in a canal or a watercourse in a dream means committing a sin, engaging in unlawfulness or molesting a servant.
A canal in a dream also could represent the housekeeper who cleans peopleâs dirt, a street sweeper, or it could mean a forbidden marriage.
A dry canal in a dream signifies cessation of business, unsalable merchandise, a dead market or discord with oneâs wife, suffering from a urinary bladder, or having kidney problems.
Ifone digs a canal and no water runs through it in a dream, it means deception.
