Dream After Istikharah For Marriage


Please can you tell me I saw a dream after doing the istikhara for marriage but I forgot the dream now. It was important for my life. Is there any way to remember it or should I do istikhara again. Please advice. Jazak Allah Khair


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-ramatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The term Istikhara means to seek Khair and goodness from the side of Allah Ta‘ala. When a person makes Istikhara, Allah Ta‘ala will place Khair and goodness in whatever decision he / she makes. It is not necessary that one has to see a dream after performing Istikharah. The mere inclination you perceive is sufficient. If you still doubt on the issue, continue to make Istikhara until you are completely satisfied.

We make Dua to Allah Ta‘ala that He grants you a pious upright husband. Aameen

And Allah Ta‘ala knows best
