Istikhara on a relationship

English Translation of the Dua for Istikhaarah

Dua for Istikhaarah

Asalam Alaekum,

I have a complicated issue at the moment which I am a bit confused about. There is a lady I met recently and am on the verge of meeting her family. But when I performed istikhara, the signs I got in my dreams were not very good. A sister of mine volunteered to perform it on my behalf and I told me she got positive signs that I should go ahead. Please what do you advise I do?

  1. Brother,

    Istikhara has nothing to do with dreams. Your sister cannot perform the Istikhara on your behalf...only you can perform the Istikhara for yourself.

    You are probably a little scared to meet her family and that is quite normal for anyone...male or female. Go ahead and meet the family. Once you have...then make Istikhara and see how you feel about moving forward. Istikhara is more of a feeling rather than seeing a dream of sorts. You either have a really good feeling about things or you don't.

    Best of luck to you.

    Please read the articles on istikhara that are available on this website. InshaAllah they may help you understand more about how to pray istikhara.
