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.

    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
    • What is Zibhe Azeem? What Argha? Sorry I'm still fairly new and don't understand many things.
