If you really would want to know the interpretation of dreams, ask an expert who has the knowledge. The internet is only going to give you false understanding of your dream.

 

Interpretation of dreams is meant to bring glad tidings and news, and not to feel depressed once you read an Interpretation. There is a lot of false information on the internet when I tried to search for a meaning of my dream. I am in no capacity an expert in interpretation of dreams and the following interpretations have only been organized by me from two different sources.

 

One is a book called “Ibn Sirin’s Dictionary of Dreams” written by Muhammad M. Al Akili. I have seen several reviews that this book should not be considered as the right source for anyone to just read and interpret the dream. It is not so simple to interpret dreams.

 

The second source I have used here is the authentic Hadith that matches the subject of the dreams trying to make a connection.

Entering a Door Dream

If you have seen in a dream that one Entering a door or a gate, it may mean 

  • a successful completion of a project, or  [2]

  • winning of an argument  [2]

    • Quranic Source: “Enter upon them through the gate. For when you enter, victory will be yours.” Soorah al-Maa’idah (5):23 (Sharh as-Sunnah, vol.12, p.221.)

If one sees entering his house and locking the door, it means protection from evil.

Opening a Door Dream

If the door is open, it relates to the source of income.

Opening a door in a dream may refer to 

  • the acceptance of a supplication or [2]

  • the need to make one [2]

    • Quranic Source: according to the derivation of the word istiftah, used in the following verse from the Quran. “If you ask for a judgement, the judgement has come.” Surah al-Anfal (8): 19. (Sharh as-Sunnah, vol.12, p.220.)

If the door opens to a street, it signifies that one’s earnings will benefit strangers and not one’s own household.
