A dead person getting married

A dead person asking/giving clothes

According to Hafiz Muabbar رحمة الله عليه, if you see a dead person naked and without clothes, it shows that he is not in a good situation.

According to Prophet Daniyal عليه السلام if a dead person gives you clothes in a dream;

  • wearing those clothes represents sorrow and loss.

  • Green clothes represent the martyrdom of the dead.
  • White clothes represent a good state.
  • Black, Red, Yellow, and Blue clothes represent a bad state.

Seeing a dream where you are helping a dead person to wear clothes indicates that the dreamer will die soon.

If a dead one asks the dreamer to wash his clothes, then it means that he is asking for a favor. One shall offer prayers for his forgiveness, pay off his debts of any, give some charity if there was a will, it shall be fulfilled or if he was served with injustice, justice shall be sought for him.

If the dreamer washes the clothes of the dead one, then it shows that there is an improvement in the conditions of the deceased.
