salam'aleykum warahmatullah.......

dear brothers n sisters, my situation now i have to answer a person about marriage. i know he is a good muslim, comes from a good family. everyone will not know who is created by Allah for him/her. he came from different country. of course he has different culture. but 4 me if he is a good muslim, other things doesnt matter. so the best way is to do istikhara. but the answer for istikhara is subjective. i had done istikhara several times.....until now i still confuse to make decision. can anyone pliz tell me the best way to do istikhara? only after i get the answer from istikhara can convince me to make a decision.

          Dear sister ,
                      As far as istikhara is concerned , I BELIEVE that as long as you do it with devotion trusting that Allah will show you exactly what to do, You can rely on it one hundred percent  far from any personal subjective opinion .
                    I advise you to perform the istikhra half an hour or so before alfajr prayer , because at that time ,ALLah is nearest to every servant who prays and asks for forgiveness .I sincerely hope Allah will guide you through your decision .

           As sister Jannah pointed out never give up istikhara , soonner or later , you will see a sign.sometimes , things seem to go well , when all of a sudden something unexpected crop up . the answers to istikhara vary , it could be a vision 'rouya' where you get the green light for keeping on the same path , or it could be some sort of impedement that aborts the continuation of the marriage plan .LAST BUT NOT LEAST, it could come from the innnermost recesses of your heart ,when you feel at peace with yourself or it could be the opposite , that is you feel something  IS blocking you from that person ;your heart is not at rest and you wish everything WOULD stop as soon as possible .
May Allah guide you all the way through. May HE give you a sign as soon as possible . ameensmiley
