Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Ishtikarah

woman lady

Salam,

I have been praying ishtikara for a few nights now. And not seeing anything however I have woken up for the toilet a few times and the 2 nights I woke up for toilet and went back to sleep I dreamt something relating to my intention of ishtikara. I prayed to Allah about a guy If he is the right one for me marriage wise but in the dream he married someone else. Now I Just want to know whether this dream counts as my wudhu broke??
Jazakha'Allah

  1. As-salāmu ʿalaykum w.w.

    we should not be impatient after our dua. We do not put Allah on a timetable. And we should not expect some sort of miracle, or a dream full of signs and symbols. These things are not necessary. We simply say our prayers and trust that Allah has heard us and will answer us in the way that is best.
    needs to be noted is that the answer to one’s istikhara prayer does not come simply in the form of dreams and feelings but in how Allah facilitates and unfolds events for an individual after he or she genuinely strives to do what is best.
    Take the most effective means, which includes consulting those whose knowledge and wisdom one has confidence in, and place your trust in Allah.

  2. I would interpret that dream to mean that Allah doesn't intend for you to marry him as he is marrying another woman in the dream. Perhaps you should change your way of seeking guidance from Allah swt. Perhaps asking him guidance on how to know when the right person comes to you. Not sure, but the fact that Allah swt didn't show your marriage to anyone could mean he wants you to wait.. Maybe the time isn't right.. I'm not assuming as I don't know you but maybe it could mean you need to work on your relationship with Allah swt before starting a family.

  3. btw it doesn't matter that you used the restroom. Our wudu breaks once we fall asleep.

  4. This is a great book to learn how to strengthen your dua / istikhara

  5. Hi.

    Dreams have no relevance to Istikhara. Please read the article below:
