A mosque in a dream also represents one who is to be obeyed, respected and revered such as a father, a teacher, a shaikh or a man of knowledge. It also asserts justice ifone who enters a mosque in his dream is unjustly treated.
The main city mosque in a dream represents the Qur’anic revelation, the ocean of knowledge, a place of purification and washing one’s sins, the graveyard where submissiveness and contemplation are evoked, the washing and shrouding of the dead, medicine, u silence, focusing one’s intention and facing the qiblah at the Ka’aba in Mecca. Seeing the main city mosque in a dream also means to recognize something good and to act upon it. It also could be interpreted as the shelter from one’s enemy, and a sanctuary and a shelter of the believer from fear, and a house of peace.
The ceiling of the mosque represents the intimate and vigilant entourage of a king. Its outstretch represents the dignitaries. Its chandeliers represent its wealth and ornaments. Its prayer mats represent the king’s justice and his knowledgeable advisors. Its doors represent the guards. Its minaret represents the king’s vice-regent, the official speaker of the palace or it announcer.
If the main mosque in the dream is interpreted to represent the ruler of the land, then its pillars represent the element oftime. Its lights represent the noble retinue and the wise men of his epoch.

The prayer niche represents his wife, or it may represent his lawful earnings, or a righteous and a chaste wife. Ifone sees a mosque burning in a dream, it means death, losses and political changes in the country.
The main mosque of the town also represents the pious people dwelling therein, the men of knowledge, the wise men, devotion, or a hermitage. Its niche represents the leader ofthe people (Imam).
The caller to prayers (Muezzin) represents the judge or a gnostic from that town or country who calls people to the right path and whose call is harkened to by the believer.

If one sees any of that in a dream, or whatever condition these elements are in, they represent the current condition of the people, and this is what the central mosque represents in one’s dream.
If one sees grass growing inside a mosque in a dream, then it means a wedding. (Also see Imam; Ka’aba; Masjid; Minaret; Minbar; Muezzin)
