Seeing a spider in a dream



I had one dream a saw spider but whatever I did I couldn't rid off and some time in my bag. It was causing no harm but it was everywhere I went. Another dream was me lifting an object and seeing a fly which looked like it was giving birth. The fly started following me and I ran and it was still following me. Again the fly caused no harm. I am calm in the dream and no fear. I usually I don't search dream meaning but this is seems reoccurring.


jazakallah khairan


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Having a dream is like travelling on a journey wherein one may see many different scenes. At times, he would see something he likes and at times he may see things he does not like. Whatever the case may be, a person does not give up his journey to attend to the various sights. He carries on in spite of the various sights.

The dream in reference is positive. The dream could mean you will be alleviated from different types of difficulties and meet pious and religious people. [i]
