Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
(Excavate) Digging the earth in a dream means profits equal to the measure of earth one piles-up if the dirt is dry. However, if the ground is wet in the dream, it means deceiving someone else in a business venture, whereby, he gains nothing from it but headache and exhaustion equal to the amount of earth he piles-up.
The digger’s plot also may backfire.
If a sick person or if someone in his household who is sick sees himself digging the earth in a dream, it could mean digging a grave.
If a business traveller sees himself digging the earth, it represents his travels and the dirt he gathers represent his profits. Digging a hole, a water well or irrigations and planing to water the plants through them in a dream means looking for a job to earn one’s livelihood and to bring its benefits to his family. Eating from the dirt one digs in his dream, means profits earned from deception. Finding oneself inside a hole in a dream means that one may divorce his wife.
If one sees himself outside a hole, looking at it in a dream, it means an argument with her which will end in reconciliation.
Ifa sick person sees himselfcoming out of a hole in a dream, it means recovering from illness or being set free from prison.
If one sees himself digging the earth in a dream, it also means muddling in falsehood to earn nothing but wrath. Digging a cavity through a mountain in a dream represents a person who associates himself with a difficult but a beneficial person. Digging a well in a dream also represents a crafty and an artful deceiver.
A person digging the ground in a dream also represents a jailer, or veiling abominable actions.
