Are all dream systems relativistic, or can there be a single, absolute dream system in which no symbolism is presumed? One of the main characteristics of an operating dream system, even if it be mostly relativistic, is its accordance with the function and structure of the brain itself.

Dreams in Islam

Dreams are broken into three parts according to the Sunnah (Sayings of Muhammad): Ru'yaa - good visions; Hulum - bad dreams and dreams from one's self. Muhammad said, "There are three types of dreams: a righteous dream which is glad tidings from Allah, a dream which causes sadness, which is from Shaitan, and a dream from the ramblings of the mind. If one sees a good dream, let him expect good, and not tell it to anyone, except to those he likes."
