Clothes Dream Meaning

Home > Guides

Seeing a shirt in a dream means and represents Piety, Godliness, Livelihood, Knowledge or glad tidings. Meaning of a shirt in a dream is also interpreted to represent one’s religious and worldly concerns.


Source : Sahih Muslim 2390, In-book reference : Book 44, Hadith 20

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, “While I was asleep I saw people being presented to me (in a dream) and they wore shirts and some of these reached up to the breasts and some even beyond them. Then there happened to pass 'Umar b. Khattab and his shirt had been trailing.” They said: “Allah's Messenger, how do you interpret the dream?” He said: “(As strength of) faith.”


If a woman sees herself wearing a long and comfortable new blouse in a dream, it represents her religiousness, piety, happiness and the enjoyment of a comfortable life in this world. It may also represent the state of her husband.


Similarly, if one sees a dream of wearing a cloth / shirt that does not properly cover the body means not fulfilling religious duties completely.

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.
