Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):

(Bucket; Watering) In a dream, a shepherd represents a leader, a teacher or a governor.

Ifone sees himselfherding his sheep and not knowinghow far they have spread in the fields in the dream, it means that he reads the Qur’fmic revelations but does not fathom their meaning. Herding camels in a dream means presiding over people from a different land. Herding one’s flock in a dream means serving one’s people with compassion, and caring for their interests.

Sheep in a dream also represent righteous men.

A shepherd in a dream also represents a high rank, a position of authority, or justice toward others.
