(arb.

Alcove; Niche; Prayer niche) In a dream, a prayer niche or a mihrab represents a leader, a guide, or the Imam of a mosque. Praying at the mihriib in a dream means glad tidings.

If a woman sees herself praying at the mihrab of a mosque in a dream, it means that she will beget a son or a daughter.

In a dream, the alcoves or shelters that poor people use for their retreats in a mosque represent sincerity, love, devotion, remembrance of God Almighty, standing in night prayers, and aloofness. Building a mihriib inside one’s house in a dream means bearing male children. Otherwise, it means that such a property will be donated by its owner for religious use.

Seeing an incorrectly positioned prayer niche in a mosque in a dream means deviation for God’s path and erring in one’s words and actions.

In a dream, a mihriib also represents lawful sustenance or a pious wife.

If one sees the prayer niche of a mosque misdirected, or if it emits a vile odor, or if one sees the corpse of a dead animal lying inside it in a dream, it indicates that the one who is seeing the dream is an unbeliever, an innovator and a hypocrite.
