A grave in dream could be revealing the fact that you are examining or accepting a material or emotional loss or failure as a result of a breakup, death of a family member, or deep disappointment.
Take into consideration the following:
According to a Muslim dream interpreter, the antithesis of a cemetery is a prison, and the opposite of a prison is a cemetery. A dream in which you reside in a cemetery is indicative of a period of incarceration.
I beseech that Allah, the Most Merciful, protects you from experiencing this in actuality. May Allah, the most Gracious, bless you with strength to defend it.
Digging a grave in a dream in Islam
In the event that an individual has a dream in which he or she sees themselves excavating a cemetery, and upon finishing their work, they find that what they have excavated is standing on the surface of the earth and does not have any walls, this ground is symbolic of the abode of the hereafter. If he then enters it in his dream, it is a sign that his life time here on earth has reached its conclusion and he is moving on to the next realm. If he chooses not to access it while he is dreaming, then the dream will not have any repercussions for him.
Dead people coming out of their graves in dreams in Islam
In a dream, if one witnesses the inhabitants of graveyards coming out of their graves to consume people’s harvest or food supplies, this portends an increase in the cost of food. In his dreams, if he witnesses them drinking from the wells, it is a portent that the community will soon be ravaged by a terrible disease.
A collective pardoning of criminals under the terms of a general amnesty is symbolized by a dream in which the deceased are seen emerging from their coffins and making their way back to their homes.
Graveyard in dreams in Islam
If you are feeling anxious, Ibn Sirin claims a dream featuring a cemetery can bring you peace and solace; if you are feeling calm and collected, it can cause you great alarm.
In dreams, seeing graveyards can also indicate isolation, dedication, abstention, asceticism, or reproof in addition to the body’s confinement.
A cemetery can also be seen as the home of a negligent person who frequently naps rather than prays, a man laying flat in a brothel, a drunken person who looks lifeless in a bar, or a hypocrite whose actions are not deserving of a heavenly reward.
If a person enters a graveyard in a dream and walks over the bones of the dead, it portends that he will pass away and be interred there. May Allah keep you from going through this in real life.
Because it acts as the gateway to the future, cemeteries serve as symbols of it.
Pray that Allah will recognize us as righteous servants and make our lives simpler in the years to come.

Muslim interpretation of dreaming about death
According to Ibn Sirin, who is considered to be the most influential Muslim dream interpreter of all time, seeing one’s own mortality in a dream is symbolic of religious failure, corruption, and an increase in one’s standing in the world.
Dreaming of your own death is also symbolic of being summoned to account for some grave transgression or offense.

Dream meaning of graves in western tradition
For many experts in dream interpretation from western countries, cemeteries almost always portend unhappiness and speak of lamenting a recent loss and the grieving we are currently experiencing for it. Because it is the time of year when we must grieve and farewell our departed loved ones, they first make their appearance to us in our dreams and even our worst nightmares.
However, a dream about a graveyard is common in many different aspects of life, not just when one is going through a difficult time in their life. Consequently, another conclusion that can be drawn from these visions is that it is unpleasant to have them,and the majority of the time, they portend something ominous, like something that could go wrong with our health or the welfare of those we care about could happen, and if we have a lot of anxiety about falling asleep or staying asleep, it will not harm to check in on our health and make sure our family is doing well and that they are taking care of themselves.
There is also another group of dream interpreters who claim that if you are in a cemetery, you are likely to experience terrible news and difficult moments in the coming days. You will be aware of this possibility and what it could entail, so it would be prudent to be ready when the time arrives.
For them, dreaming that you are departing a cemetery has a positive connotation, as it signifies that you have left problems or negative emotions behind and they are no longer an issue. The fact that you are departing the cemetery signifies that you have overcome something that caused you pain, but that is no longer the case.
Having a dream in which you are accompanied to a cemetery does not inherently portend impending death, but rather that there are unresolved issues that need to be discussed immediately. If it is someone you have not seen in a long time, it could be a sign that you will soon see them again or receive news about them.
Duas about graves
أَخْبَرَنِي أَحْمَدُ بْنُ سَعِيدٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا حَبَّانُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، قَالَ أَنْبَأَنَا ثَابِتٌ، وَسُلَيْمَانُ التَّيْمِيُّ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ مَرَرْتُ عَلَى قَبْرِ مُوسَى عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ وَهُوَ يُصَلِّي فِي قَبْرِهِ ”
The Prophet (s.w.t) said:
“I passed by the grave of Musa, peace be upon him, and he was praying in his grave.”Vol. 2, Book 20, Hadith 1634
أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ أَشْعَثَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مَسْرُوقٍ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، – رضى الله عنها – قَالَتْ سَأَلْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ فَقَالَ “ نَعَمْ عَذَابُ الْقَبْرِ حَقٌّ ” . قَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ فَمَا رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُصَلِّي صَلاَةً بَعْدُ إِلاَّ تَعَوَّذَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ .
“I asked the Messenger of Allah (s.w.t.) about the torment of the grave, and he siad: ‘Yes, the torment of the grave is real.'” ‘Aishah said: “After that I never saw the Messenger of Allah (s.w.t.) offer any prayer but he would seek refuge with Allah (s.w.t.) from the torment of the grave.”Vol. 2, Book 13, Hadith 1309
