Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(arb.) Performing oneâs ritual ablution but without water in a dream means the nearing solutions of oneâs problems.
Tayammum is usually performed instead of the regular ablution in the absence of water, or because of a preventing illness, etcetera. However, observingthe religious rites and substance ofthe act remains solemn.
Tayammum in a dream also may mean a journey, or an illness.
If the act is performed with a dry surface such as wood, stone, dry sand, earth, or a substance that does not stick to the skin in a dream, it means that oneâs travel plans may be infeasible, or it could mean that he will become cheep, or pursue his evil desires.
To perform tayammum while water is accessible in a dream means falsehood and hypocrisy.
It also means hoping for forgiveness while adamantly pursuing the avenues of wrongdoing, giving preference to oneâs interests. in the world over his lasting benefits in the hereafter, preferring masturbation over lawful sexual intercourse, or being a hypocrite, and it could mean recovering from a terminal illness, or release from prison.
