Dreams have been a topic of study dating as far back as 5000 B.C.  Dreams have been around for as long as the first civilization came to be and have been a normal part of human existence.

The ancient Egyptians believed that the gods showed themselves in dreams, caused by actual entities, which could not be controlled by the conscious mind. They wrote down their dreams on papyrus as far back as 2000BC. Dreams were divided into three groups: those in which a pious act was demanded, warnings and revelations and those that came via ritual.
The Egyptians believed dreams served as oracles, bring messages from the gods, so they would try to incubate dreams and travel to a special shrine. In Memphis, a famous sanctuary provided dream beds and interpreters. 
In Mesopotamia, the Babylonians divided their dreams into good and bad. Records on clay tablets found in Nineveh date to 669BC, they show a concern that bad dreams can come from demons. To protect themselves they built temples to Mamu, the goddess of dreams. 

In the West, the concept of dreams was addressed in Greek philosophy by Socrates, Plato and Plato and held a privileged position in the foundation of Greek society. Lucid dreams were first addressed by Plato in 350BC, in his treatise on dreams. When one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which tells us what presents itself is but a dream, the Greek god of dreams was Morpheus.

The Soul in sleep gives proof of its divine nature. - Cicero Emperor 

Augustus Caesar ruled that anyone who dreamt of the state, was by law, to proclaim in the market place. Like the Greeks the Romans took dreams very seriously. 

The Hebrews incorporated dreams heavily into their religion. In the Babylonian Talmud there are four chapters dedicated to dreams. The Talmudic dream interpreter, rabbi Hisda said a dream uninterpreted, is like a letter unread, Rabbi Bisna recognised the warning and transformative nature of dreams. The bible contains over 70 references to dreams. Like many cultures the Hebrews incubated dreams to receive divine revelations.
Islamic dream interpreters were even more numerous, and also more systematic. The prophet Mohamed attributed great importance to dreams,
he asked his disciples to recite their dream immediately on waking, particular importance was put on a truthful recital.  

The 12th century Sufi Ib-El Arabi suggested that controlling thought in dreams is an essential requirement for aspiring mystics. Ishtikara, or dream interpretation, is the only way Muslims can receive divine revelations, after the death of the prophet Mohammed.
Now Allah has created the dream, not only as a means for for guidance and instruction, but made it a window on the unseen. Prophet Mohammed
