If this dream occurs during the pilgrimage season, it means profits for a merchant, recovery for the sick, finding guidance after heedlessness, or it could mean that one will perform his pilgrimage ifhe had not yet fulfilled this obligatory religious duty.

Ifone’s dream takes place outside the pilgrimage season, then it could mean the opposite.

If one sees himself as a pilgrim in a dream, and if he disdains from actually perform his pilgrimage, though he possesses the means to do so, it means that he is a reprobate and an ungrateful person.
