Ifone shakes hands with Omar bin Al-Khattab in a dream, it means that he will prosper and live a pious life, and he will be a vigilant and a strong believer, the value of whose deeds will surpass his fame. If one sees him frowning in a dream, it means that Omar is calling for justice, commanding what is good and forbidding what is evil. Ifthere is a drought in a town and one sees Omar in a dream, it means that rain will fall and be a blessing for that land.
