Interpretation of death for Ibn Sirin
Death in a dream is a regret of a great affair, so whoever sees that he died and then lived, he commits a sin and then repents because of the Almighty’s saying:
Ibn Sirin explained death, its forms, and states in several ways: the interpretation of the dream of the death of the person himself, and whoever saw that he died and saw his death, a funeral, a community, washing and shrouding, his world was safe and his religion was corrupted.
If he saw that he died while he was naked on the ground, then he is poor.
If he dreams that he has died and did not see the body of the dead or their apparatus, then a wall or a house is being demolished from his house.
Whoever dreams that he is wrapped in a shroud as the dead are wrapped in his dream, his dream indicates his death. If he does not cover his head and feet, then it is a corruption of his religion. And the less the shroud is over the dead, it is closer to repentance, and what is more, it is further from repentance.

Whoever dreams that he was buried in his grave without death, his dream indicates that his burial will crush him or imprison him. He came out of the grave after he was buried, so it is hoped that he will repent.

As for the grave originally dug, it was said that it is a prison in interpretation, just as prison is the grave. And whoever dreams that he is standing on a grave, then he is sinning because of the Almighty’s saying: (And do not stand on his grave), and if he sees a wealthy person in a cemetery, he goes around the graves and greets them. His hardship is ease from where he does not count. If he sees a living person as if he is dead, then his matter will be difficult for him. That is because life is easy and death is a hardship. If he sees the dead rejoicing, then this indicates his good condition with Allah Almighty, because they are in the abode of truth.
