  1. Assalam o Alaikum, I am deeply in love with a guy I met exactly one year ago. After a few months of talking to him we decided we wanted to get married. He sent his mother over to my house, it went well. His mother then said that she is just waiting for his dad (he lives abroad) to come back and she will then take the talk further. When his dad came they invited us over to their place. My parents were very reluctant as they somehow didn’t like his family. So they thought doing an istakhara would be the right thing to do. They did it through a Molana sahab. And it came out negative. What should I do now? I am deeply in love with him and getting over it seems impossible. My parents have told me to move on as it is Allah’s verdict. What should I do? The guy’s parents are still willing to marry us.
  2. Salam Alaykum to all, I have recently graduated from uni with a Bachelors of Engineering. I've applied for a Masters and it is a specialisation on a subject I am very keen on. It has been for months that I have been considering my options and I can't come to a decision. I'm not sure if my future would be beter with the Masters I choose. I did two istikhara's with an alim. The first one was for the Masters and my niyyah was if I would have a good future and good job opportunities with this degree. The result came out as 'good'. Now in the second isitkhara, I had a similar niyyah and the answer was 'very good'. I've discussed this with the alim and he explained to me that maybe doing a Masters will have good benefits albeit with some difficulties on the way to achieving the degree. Analysing the second istikhara, he said that the possibility exists that I would find a job very quick and would also have a good future with it. For doing the Masters I have to borrow an additional loan from the government of about 10000 pounds in addition to a similar amount of savings. If doing the Masters, my debt will increase to nearly 50000 pounds. Ofcourse with a Masters I could end up with a much better pay. I am really confused as what to decide in this situation. I hope someone can help me in this tricky decision.
  3. Istikhara in love marriage

    We knew each other since long time and find it compatible for each other, Few months back I told this to my parents and they did a background check and found it alright. We perform Istikhara after this which came "Bad" and we have decided to close the discussion. I have also read that Istikhara is taken in certain condition and many Ullema ask to use it very carefully. One view from ayatullah-khomeini on Istikhara on this available in below link: https://www.al-islam.org/istikhara-seeking-the-best-from-Allah-muhammad-baqir-haideri/section-8-views-maraja-taqlid-and "Or; Who answers the distressed one when he calls upon Him and removes the evil?1However, there are examples that people who are against Istikhara mention, such as the incident in which there was a girl who liked a young boy and in all ways, were compatible with each other, but after talking with one another, the Istikhara was performed and it came out 'bad' and the discussion ended there. Another example is about a person who wanted to purchase a house. Everything was fine and in all ways, the house was ideal ‑ he performed an Istikhara and it came out bad, so he decided not to purchase the house.It is clear that the reply to them and thousands of people like these regarding the Istikhara (and the proper use of it), is that in instances such as these, only one who has no intelligence, who is defiant, and who does not have a correct understanding of the Istikhara would perform it in these instances. " Looking for your kind guidance/Masferah if this is the right decision. Thank you.
  4. Sadaqah for istikhara

    If istikhara comes bad for marriage but the person still wants to marry. Can they sacrifice sheep as sadaqah? Or is there any other way? Guys please help me on this with reference. Thanks
  5. Hi, my questions are the following: 1) do you know any shia website, or book, that explains Quran verse by verse (in English); 2) is it acceptable, for someone who is not Arab, to perform Istikhara by using a translated version of the Holy Book? Thanks to you all.
  6. salam aleikum beloved brothers and sisters... i have a question. i made istikhara where my niya was if i should keep having sabr and wait for a guy when he is ready for marriage. right now he isn't ready neither with me or any girl. he stopped talking/writing to me, so now we no longer have contact with each other (he doesn't respond to my texts). he wants to finish college before he thinks about marriage. i made istikhara by using imam ali (as) method as in this one: you tube.com/watch?v=JG-r4sgxrVs (remove the space between u and t to watch the video). I got ف (Allah reunites him after separation). so what does that mean? is it positive? to me it sounds positive that i think it means that i will be with him after the "break" or something like that. i hope for some answers. shukran for your time.

  10. Help With Istikhara

    Salaam, I am needing to undertake Istikhara and went to duas.org to look up the proper method but have a question that needs clarified. http://www.duas.org/istikhara.htm Above is the link I am talking about. In many of the methods it mentions moving the tasbeeh beads two at a time, but to the dividing beads count? Or should they just be skipped. Any other insight that can be given overall about Istikhara would also be welcome.

  14. Al salamo 3alaykom, I was engaged to a guy for about 2 years and we were supposed to get married really soon. sUddenly I dont know what happened to him he stopped answering me. its been a few months no sign of him other than him ignoring my msgs. I want an istikhara to know if I should keep waiting or if Allah thinks its best that I forget him? and also what should I do and whats happening. Thank you
  15. Assalamu alaikum brothers and sisters, I really need to know how istikhara is performed as I need an answer from Allah as soon as possible. How exactly is it performed? What are the best times to perform istikhara? How long does it usually take for an answer? What duas and prayers are used whilst praying istikhara? If I could find out the easiest way of performing this prayer it would be much appreciated, also I would like to know how the shia perform this. Thank you.
  16. Salaam, I would like some advice on the relationship between dream interpretation and Istikhara prayers. I want to ask about marriage proposals and Istikhara. My friend was offered a marriage proposal last year and she and her mom were doing Istikhara prayers almost every week. At first she didn't like this man and she was against the idea of marrying him. When she first started doing Istikhara she had bad dreams and was very uncertain about the whole matter. Then she started to become close to this man and to know more and more about him and slowly she realised that she was becoming to grow fond of him. He had told her that he was becoming fond of her too and enjoying getting close to her. During this time she was still doing Istikhara and then started having very very good dreams about her marriage with him. Dreams that are interpreted to mean a union of two people. But unfortunately, the marriage proposal didn't work out between them because of him, he left her all of a sudden with no valid explanation. So is there a connection between dreams and Istikhara?? When we do Istikhara and have dreams, is Allah speaking through them to us? Or dreams so not count when we do Istikhara?? If my friend was having good dreams about her matter with this man, why did something tragic happen all of a sudden? I want to know because now I feel that I lost all hope in doing Istikhara prayers and I dont feel they will really lead me in the right path anymore. Are dreams really part of our Istikhara, or just our conscious thinking about what's going on in our lives???
