Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Under the sun, in the dark, or otherwise.) In a dream, a shadow represents changes affectingoneâs life in the world and his elevation or abasement.
A shadow in a dream also means guidance, repentance, true monotheism and contemplating the Maker and His creation.
If one moves but does not see his shadow moving in a dream, it means abrogating the laws, discarding what is permissible, adopting what is unlawful, death, becoming motionless, or losing oneâs senses.
The same interpretation applies if oneâs shadow disappears under the sunlight, or under the moonlight, or in the night lights, or if his reflection disappears from the water surface, or from any shiny surface.
If one sees his shadow dancing in a dream, it means falsehood, lies, stealing peopleâs money, shifting oneâs faith according to oneâs personal interests, or that he criticize the conduct of Godâs Prophet, upon whom be peace. Dancing oneâs shadow over a carpet in a dream means invoking evil spirits, speaking their words after being possessed by them, and it means trials, temptations and evil.
