Dream Interpretation – Ants eating an Ayah tattooed on my arm

25 Oct 2018 Ref-No#: 1134

Assalamoalaikum wrwb.

My question is about a dream interpretation. I got up today and prayed tahajjud and then went to Masjid for fajr. Since Fajr is really early these days in Adelaide (Australia) and I hadn’t gotten ample sleep, after returning I decided to take a short 40 minute nap. I then slept for 2 hours instead. This isn’t something I am in the habit of doing, I only did this today, and I understand sleeping after Fajr isn’t recommended.

During my sleep I dreamt that I was lying down half asleep and I realised a few weeks ago I had gotten an ayat of surah Rahmaan (Fabi ayyi aala irabbikuma tukazzebaan) tattooed on my arm above my elbow in really small writing, almost illegible from a distance. But upon observing it closely I realised that there were Tiny Red and black ants crawling over it and my skin had started to lose pigmentation in certain spots and so the tattoo was partly erased. Also some ants were crawling under my skin in that specific area of the body, but surprisingly I felt no pain.

At seeing this, I was terrified and I immediately got up and started to brush them off and that’s when they started biting me and it started to sting. And that was the end of it.

I would like to add, in real life, I have no tattoos on my body, and this is something i strongly object to and consider Haram (even if it is an ayah of the Quran).

I am curious to know if this means anything.

JazakAllah khair.

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

The dream means that there are people who are jealous of you, and due to that, your bounties are being snatched away.

You should recite the verses of the Quran to protect yourself from enemies (example: Ayatul Kursi, last three Quls etc). Also, do not expose the bounties of Allah to others. Keep your affairs hidden.

May Allah protect you from your enemies.
