  1. Assalam alaikum rehmatullah. I saw a snake in my dream, brown 2 cobras, near my friends house,, me and my friend rush to see them, i asked my wife to come and see the snakes, later on me and friend assume that may be they come from a hole and we starter digging the.. Please suggest what kind of dream was that

    • sorry, I am not really qualified to interpret it. However, I would say that the snakes did not attack you, so you might not be in danger. But still: always good to give Sadaqa and pray for Allah’s protection and guidance and blessings for this life and the next.

  2. Assalamu alaikum I saw in my dream one large green snake with patches on came out from pipe and my one of the brother ( who I don’t believe that he has well wishes for me .😄 I have always been in doubt about him ) cought that snake and offered me to hold and carry to the his destination. But snake was angry and his mouth was wide open and I was scared to hold him and suddenly the snake attacked on my right hand shoulder very harshly. As soon as he attacked I woken up from my sleep and scared and also I was feeling my right hand shoulder very heavy and uncomfortable ( felt that something had happened on same area ) . I am really scared 😦 ,can you plz help me to interpret ?

    • I am not really qualified to interpret any dream. I am just a humble editor. In any case, it does look that you need to be careful. Pray and give sadaqa please.

      • Thanks for reply ,
        I couldn’t sleep after that and searched other website and nearly interpret my dream ( it seems singe of jealousy who harmed me or going to harm in future .) This dream doesn’t seems good to me 😒 really worried . May Allah protect me from Evil act .

      • the website for interpretation is http://www.myislamicdream.com did you visit that? But, as you will see, even with that website sometimes there are many different meanings and we humble individuals will not know which one will apply to our case.

  3. I did visit https://sites.google.com/view/green2fish/snake-dream-interpretation-islam which was explaining more .

    Yes even I am bit confused, I didn’t see snake 🐍 biting me in my dream. I just saw “ as soon as my brother caught him he Open his mouth widely and angrily I was scared to see him and suddenly he attacked on my right hand shoulder. As soon as he attacked I woken up in scary way and feeling right hand shoulder like something happened there 😀. I don’t know what kind of dream it is but bit scared after that . May Allah protect me .

    • in http://www.myislamicdream.com it says:

      Snail � A snail in a dream means that one will move away from his place or town. Dream Interpreter: Ibn Sirin

      HOWEVER, please note that dream interpretation is not an ‘exact science’. Things can change with prayers. Give Sadaqat and pray. But who knows, it might mean a better future ? May Allah be our support at all times.

      • anyway, please let us know any update, for instance in case you really do ‘move away’ ?

  4. hi, if I saw Black snakes and pythons in a dream it says that it means Army generals! but what does that mean? it only says army generals

  5. i have someone with me in that dream we drive a car and we pass the snake .. thats nothing to the snake.. whats the meaning of it?

  6. I dreamt that I saw snake, it was just sitting down in one corner of my room. It moved it head a little bit buh I was really afraid cause I’m ophidiophobic in reality. Then I saw my kid brother playing with one, kind of small. Then I told him to stop playing with. He came into the room with it. Please what does it mean?

    • First of all I have to tell you that I am not really qualified to interpret dreams. I am just giving you an idea. I feel that as the snake did not harm you it should not be such a bad dream. But please give Sadaqa and pray to Allah for protection for yourself and your family. May Allah be our Protector at all times.

    • you may go to http://www.myislamicdream.com and enter ‘black snake’. You will note that there are different meanings. Difficult for us normal mortals to be sure of the meaning without Ibn Sirin interpreting it. – Generally speaking a snake may mean an enemy (but has other meanings too). As the snake did not bit you the meaning should not be too bad. Anyway, please give Sadaqat and pray to Allah for protection!
