Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
Swelling in a dream means increase in oneâs earnings, or earnings that will be quickly spent, or it could mean increase in oneâs knowledge.
Swelling in a dream also signifies pride, self-adulation, or a hidden claim.
If a swelling from inflammation subsides in a dream, it means the return of a traveller, calming the fury of an angry person, controlling the exasperation of an outraged person, things returning to normal, appeasement of a repulsive person, or loss of oneâs job.
