Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Hatchet) An ax in a dream means receiving help, increase in oneâs earnings, recovering from a migraine headache, recovering from an illness, or it could mean begetting a son. Holding an ax in oneâs hand in a dream means becoming a guardian, an executor of a will, a trustee, becoming steadfast in oneâs religion, or it could mean overcoming oneâs enemy.
It is said that an ax in a dream means harm, disruption and scattering of oneâs livelihood.
An ax in a dream also represents a servant, a housekeeper, strength, victory or perhaps an insolent person or it could denote oneâs job.
