Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Changing hide into leather or curing it; Dye) Seeing a tanner in a dream is interpreted the same as seeing a cupper.
(See Cupping). Both specialties cure something.
If one sees a physician becoming a tanner in a dream, it denotes his expertise and the large number of people who benefit from his treatments. Unless one finds the tanning to be faulty, then it indicates a non-professional person.
Ifseeing a tanner in a dream is understood to denote material benefits, then in reality, he represents an escape from death.
If he is understood in relationship with religious matters, then seeinghim means feeding the poor and hungry during a drought or a famine.
A tanner in a dream also represents a peacemaker, a physician, or a guardian. However, it is possible to interpret a tanner in a dream to mean distress, adversities, or an unjust person.
