Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
Reading the holy Qurâan or part of it in a dream means rising in station, gaining power, repenting from sins, prosperity, paying oneâs debts, witnessing the truth, or delivering a trust to its rightful owner. Reciting the holy Qurâiin with a beautiful voice in a dream means honor, dignity and good fame. Reading the holy Qurâiin and adding oneâs own words to it in a dream means wavering from the truth, or betraying oneâs promise or covenant.
If in the latter case one does not understand the meaning of what he is saying in the dream, it means that he will give a false testimony in a court of justice, or that he will be involved in something evil the consequences of which cannot be foreseen.
If one sees people listening to his recital of the Qurâan in a dream, it means that he will command a job, and that people will follow his instructions. Hearing, or reading any Qurâanic chapter which is customarily read for a deceased person in a dream, signifies the death of a sick person in that family. Professional Qurâiin readers in a dream represent the leading people of the society.
To hear a professional Qurâiinic recital in a dream means that people in authority will soon gather in the place where the recital is seen in oneâs dream.
If one sees himself reading his book of records on the Day of Judgment in a dream, and if he is an unlettered person in wakefulness, it means that he will become rich after having suffered from poverty, and that he will answer all the questions he will be asked on the Day of Reckoning, or that he will be protected by God Almighty from what he fears most.
This happens if oneâs reading of his own records is positive, but if it reads his sins and pitfalls in the dream, then it denotes distress, trouble, or sufferings.
