Jinn in Dreams : Islamic Meanings

~May 12, 2023~

For one of the greatest dream interpretes in the muslim history, among the Jinn, some are believers while others are satans.

In most cases, Jinn are believed to represent deception, duplicity, cunning, perfidy, treason, theft, alcoholism, travel, music, bars, tricks, sleight of hand, illusion, wizardry, and magic in a dream.

On the contrary, meeting a Jinni in a dream who displays truthfulness, knowledge, and wisdom suggests that the individual will receive good news.

Becoming a Jinni in a dream in Islam

If one is transformed into a Jinni in a dream, it means that he will acquire such qualities.

Being controlled or possed by a Jinn (Sawljaan)

A man dreamt that he saw a sceptre in his hand and he hit a ball with it, then the sceptre flew from his hand and landed on his head. Shaykh Shihaab-ud-Deen said to him: Do you have epilepsy? He said: You are right. He said: Because if you break up the word Sawlajaan (meaning sceptre) you get Sawljaan (meaning control of the Jinn), which hit your head.
