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.

Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 2687,

In-book reference : Book 52, Hadith 48

Narrated Um Al-Ala: That when the Ansar drew lots as to which of the emigrants should dwell with which of the Ansar, the name of `Uthman bin Mazun came out (to be in their lot). Um Al-Ala further said, "Uthman stayed with us, and we nursed him when he got sick, but he died. We shrouded him in his clothes, and Allah's Apostle came to our house and I said, (addressing the dead `Uthman), 'O Abu As-Sa'ib! May Allah be merciful to you. I testify that Allah has blessed you.' The Prophet (ﷺ) said to me, "How do you know that Allah has blessed him?" I replied, 'I do not know O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! May my parents be sacrificed for you.' Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, 'As regards `Uthman, by Allah he has died and I really wish him every good, yet, by Allah, although I am Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), I do not know what will be done to him.' Um Al- Ala added, 'By Allah I shall never attest the piety of anybody after him. And what Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)s said made me sad." Um Al-Ala further said, "Once I slept and saw in a dream, a flowing stream for `Uthman. So I went to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) and told him about it, he said, 'That is (the symbol of) his deeds."
