istikhara online

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't trust doing an istikhara online. Go to your local peer or alim ...you're in india there should be thousands of them just boppin around fresh outta Qom.

Doing an istikhara online is very dangerous because it's basically like conducting one of those "Which spice girl are you?/ Which bollywood actor do you most resemble..take the quiz now!" surveys whereby you'll probably get a generic answer or quranic ayat.

haha and if it's something like you wanting to know "SHOULD I MARRY HER " then that's some life changing decisions that you don't really want to get from the INTERNET ! Having said that, a lot of people make life changing decisions on the internet.......... Shiamatch.com is one of them, and it's not really recommended if you're going down that route!

That should be my new idea to these Muslim Matrimony websites...you select the person you want to marry and underneath her picture there should be the "istikhara" link or option to see if you should go for it!

err anyways forget that....yeah contact a Turbon head brotha

(salam)

i think it will better for you if ,you do it yourself because, as you istikhara when your in real help of GOD. so just try to be on the safe side, where there are more chances of getting an appropriate answer. instead of u know, still being unsure about the thing your looking for.

sounds good right?

Salaam Brothers and Sisters,

I'm a new member and Inshallah I hope to learn more about Islam through this site.

Something has recently come up in my life and it has left me confused. Deep, deep down i know the answer but for some reason my

mind keeps doubting it. In this situation, should I do isthikhara? If so i would like to have the isthikara done by an aalim rather than doing it myself

however i want to remain anonymous so does anyone have an email add. of an aalim who can do isthikhara for me thru email?

your help will be greatly appreciated

Salam all
May I quote from Ayatullah Sistani website regarding opting for Istekhara:
Question: When is it good or necessary to see an Istikhara?

Answer: Istikhara is done when you are confused and perplexed. One must first of all consult experts or wise individuals to see if he can reach a decision. If after consultation he still remains confused, he can then do Istikhara. You must know that when an act is good in itself, there is no need to make Istikhara for it.

    • Shakir's translation is not always good I found out recently. Thought let you know
    • Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى himself has cursed different groups in Quran. Eg: Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 64:
      إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَنَ الْكَافِرِينَ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ سَعِيرًا Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire,
      (English - Shakir)
    • Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 7:
      هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are decisive, they are the basis of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding.
      (English - Shakir)
    • I think the verse which says " dont curse" و لا تسبوا is very clear and easy to understand. Shias dont need to insult their enemies because they have enough strong evidence to prove their faith. Insulting is immoral and unIslamic and it is what weak illogical people choose to do.
    • (54:22) We have made the Qur'an easy to derive lessons from. Is there, then, any who will take heed?
