Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):

(Drum; Musical instruments) In a dream, a tambourine means adversities, pain and sufferings.

It also means fame for the one carrying it.

If a girl dancer carries it in the dream, it means that she may win a lottery, or acquire a publicly known fortune.

The sound of a tambourine in a dream represents a recognized and a baseless fallacy.

Seeing a man carrying a tambourine means fame for him and for whoever accompanies him in the dream.

A woman carrying the tambourine in a dream also means that she will become famous, or it could indicates a new social trend.

In general, when musical instruments are used in one’s dream, playing them in a festival, a wedding, or in any type of celebration means trials.
