I met a beautiful girl while already engaged, so I prayed Istikhara

While engaged to a girl that I dated, I met another woman, beautiful in both looks and deeds. I was confused what to do so I prayed Istikhara, had a dream, and am wondering what it means.

He’s blocked me even though my Istikhara was positive.

Family not allowing my marriage because of caste

I want to marry a guy and we have been in a relationship for 7 years now. His family is also ready with the marriage proposal and have approached my family a number of times. But my family is not agreeing. The only reason they are giving is that the boy is not of our caste, although he is also a Muslim. We have tried convincing them but of no use.

Conflicted feelings regarding istikhara

I have a man who recently proposed to my family. When my parents agreed, he and I prayed istikhara to decide if this is truly the right decision. When he prayed, he received a negative feeling about moving forward, however, when I prayed, I had a positive feeling or no feelings at all. What is the ruling for conflicting feelings?
