Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Jot down; Scribble; Writing) Writing in a dream signifies a trick, a gimmick or a conspiracy.
A writer in a dream represents a cunning and a fraudulent person.
If oneâs handwriting looks illegible, or inelegant in the dream, it means that he will repent for dishonesty and from defrauding people. Writing on a scroll or on a legal pad in a dream means that one may receive an inheritance. Writing in a notebook in a dream means dodging, or repudiation. Writing a novel or a book in a dream means receiving unlawful money, or it could mean falling sick.
If one sees himself writing a book or a letter and finishes it in his dream, it means that he will complete a project and fulfill his goals.
If he fails to complete his book or his letter in the dream, it means that something will hamper, or stand in the way of completing his project. Writing with the left hand in a dream means indulging in loathsome actions, going astray, or perhaps having a son who is born from adultery, or it could mean that one may become a poet.
Signing a deed, a check or a legal contract in a dream means failing to fulfill an agreement.
If one sees someone he knows drafting a contract between them in a dream, it means that the other person will defraud him, mislead him in a business deal and drive him astray.
If one finds himself illiterate and incapable of writing in a dream, it means that he is depressed, though God Almighty will show him a way out of his difficulties.
If an illiterate person sees himself trying to learn how to write and read in a dream, it means that he will benefit from something he feared for a long time, or it could mean that he will go through hard times.
If a learned person finds himself incapable of writing anything in a dream, it means depression, fear, toiling and obstruction of his business.
