    Re: Istikhara before marriage

    Not always feelings sometimes dreams and how Allah SWT is making things easy for you ...

    I just remembered when my sister's husband proposed to her and she was confused about him for certain reasons then she did istikharah and dreamt about herself wearing a beautiful blue shoes that fitted her so she told me about her dream and I knew she will be married to him loool now alhamdulilah she is happy with him :)

    Assalamualaikum,

    how do you pray istikhara? I had looked to lectures but I am still confused. It's two rakah, but is there a special dua to speak?

    Another problem as this can effect what suitors think of you, they might even question why you are still single.
    True
    Being desi means you are owned by your culture which sucks.

    I prayed istikhara when i was in a confused situation and got a strong feeling that i did not want this. So i decided no matter what happens i will not go ahead with it. I believe that was the answer to the prayer when i was totally confused.

    If you still feel uncomfortable with your decision it's probably a sign you shouldn't go ahead.

    Always listen to your instincts. So much truth in that. It has worked for me. My doubts have always been a reason to stop, think and question my decision. Usually they are negative.

    Currently in a dilemma, haven't started isthikaara but I'm planning on doing it with the thought that I want to go ahead with this even though I'm divided about it.

    started a topic Istikhara before marriage

    Istikhara before marriage

    I'm not sure what sort of signs I should be expecting with istikhara dua for marriage. I've performed it a few times for someone I want to get married to.

    I'd love it if people can share their experiences with istikhara and their marriages or proposals...
