SUBJECT AND OBJECTIVES: The Holy Quran has always been an inexhaustible source of divine wisdom and knowledge that Muslim philosophers and mystics picked up and demonstrated through research and analysis. Among the important Quranic topics dealt with by Muslim mystics, headed by Ibn Arabi, is the true dream, as the Almighty Lord in His Holy Book, singled out several verses for it, so that Surat Joseph had topped the Holy Quran with the subject of the true vision and its interpretation.
METHOD AND FINDING: In this research, we sought, by following the descriptive analytical method of the dream Quranic verses, based on a mystical viewpoint, to know its origin which has two dimensions, one existential and the other cognitive, as well as clarifying its effects on humans life.
CONCLUSION: Based on this study, we concluded that the origin of the dream in the Holy Quran is mystically linked to the discontiguous world of imagination on one hand, and the world of contiguous world of imagination on the other hand, connecting this with the position of man and what he perceives from the presence of imagination, which is an independent presence in which meanings and spirits appear in forms. In addition, revealing the importance of the true dream in terms of predicting future events, and the position of the dream interpreter in regard to realizing the dream in the world of visibility.
