    istikhara?

    Assalam Walaykum,
    Anyone here do a istikhara regarding proposals, or your marriage? If you did how did you know what the answer was to it? Did you have a dream, something come in the way, a feeling? I'd like to hear personal experiences, if anyone would like to share.
    Jazak Allah Khayran

    no dreams

    pray 2 rakah

    dua of istikhaara with aforementioned need

    proceed

    if outcome is blocked - answer to your istikhaara

    if outcome proceeds - answer to your istikhaara

    personal experience:
    Need: accommodation
    signed contracts, prayed istikhaara, moved in, 2 days later landlords wife rings and says her husband is not a good man and please leave asap, severely freaked but eternally grateful to the One
    ...And he who fears Allah - He will make for him a way out. [65:3]

    Istekhara is done where there r 2 options,
    If u r fine with the man, and ur dad approves him there is no such need,,
    And istekhara is only don't by oneself,, anyone else doing it for u is all fake,
    It's simple and u can easily find online,

    There is no feeing or any dream, istekahra is just a dua to Allah to help u make the best decision,,
    But it's not required when u have very clear liking and understanding

    If you follow Sh albani then abstain from istikhara.
    Hadith of istikhara is fabricated one..
    Plz see silsila dhaeefa # 611

    Thats not true, its clear sahabas use to do istekhara coz they were told by the prophet saw,
    no one follows sh albani, u dont have his fiqh,
    there r only 4 imams who have fiqhs which is followed.

    Re: istikhara?

    Wa-Alaikum Salaam

    Istikhara is about yaqeen
    When you ask Allah through Istikhara and you dont like the outcome, than you have to believe that what has heppened is best fr you.
    Lots of people do Istikhara than their hearts sasys get married and they end up divorced.
    That marriage was probabaly a means of making their hereafter or teahing the mgreat lessons.
    If it is that the marriage is troubled too and doesnt break in that was an opportunity to get one's sins pardoned by sabr.

    So... if Allah has guided one to even do Istikhara to start off with... the action one takes thereafter is best for that person whether it is liked or not.

    istikahra isnt just about 2 options, it can be done when there is any decision to make

    even if everything seems ok do istikhara and inshallah Allah swt will give whats best

    If the ramification of istikhara is through dreams then it's not definitive as our dreams are zanni (speculative) irrespective any level of taqwa we are on

    Dreams can also be influences by thoughts and feelings whilst awake.

    Re: istikhara?

    You pray your istikharah and whatever happens after that is Allah's choice for you.... no dreams, no feelings and no such a thing... if you pray istikharah on a proposal, and you feel happy to accept, and سبحان الله it didnt work out, thats cuz Allah knows best and chose it doesnt happen (even though you've accept it)

    What you need to believe and trust is that Allah will take care of it...

    Remember that istikharah is a prayer... be persistent, and make sure all the reasons for accepted prayers are there.. simple example = that you are not taking interest and your money is halal...
