  1. Anyone is free to correct me if I am wrong, but Istikhara isn't about fortune telling or seeing directly into the past. It is a prayer to accept Qadr allah and to be rightly guided. While I think Allah can show His will in dreams. It is mistake reduce Istikhara into simple dream interpretation or trances.

  2. Salaam Brother,

    First of all you cannot judge a person based on rumours, so first you have to find proof that she is having relationship with someone else. And praying Istikhara is not the way to find proof. (as brother Abu Ameer has pointed out)

    And you have to stop all contact with her till marriage because you are doing Zina. Marry her and then live with her honorably.

    May Allah give you more Knowledge.

  3. You should do istikhara and God will guide you. you will know what the future holds. be patient.
