‘The meaning of synonyms vary, though I have used some contemporary appellations, idiomatic phrases, Arabic terms, specialized definitions, as well as Islãmic terminologies and proper names in certain parts of this dictionary. It is important for the reader to commence by studying the Introduction, and the Guide To Using This Dictionary of Dreams before sailing into his search for the meaning of his or her dream. Except for a student, or a professional dream interpreter, one should take what applies to his prevailing circumstances, and discount the rest. The reader must use his wisdom and take what benefits him, and discard what does not suit him. The more knowledge and background one may have in this field, the easier it is for him to develop an understanding from this dictionary. However, the less knowledge one has, then reading this dictionary will help him ascertain a point of view on a day-to-day basis when he lacks the opportunity of knowing a wise Shaikh, or a dream interpreter’
