    On the off chance that two things and can't settle on a correct decision then he should to do Istikhara. It is better to do Istikhara independent from anyone else and in the event that he can't do as such then he can do free online Istikhara from the website of Dawat-e-Islami while sitting at home and without any charges.

    so does istikhara result in an objective - do this 1.2.3..? that one becomes a kafir for not following it?

    how exactly should one interpret istikhara?

    Says here he's got a Phd from Binoria and a student of the rogue Sarfraz Safdar Khan, as well as Taqi Uthmani.

    I came across this on youtube;

    @22:01 -23:26
    'Istikhara k baad agar uss pe amal na kiya jaye wo kafir ho jata hain aur dusra yeh hain k wo gunha kabeera ka murtakib hain...'

    simply put, istekhara is one's own effort - and in response, the Almighty Allah may show the seeker whether it will be good for him or otherwise to follow a certain matter or not. it is not binding upon the seeker, because there are various possibilities - such as he could be mistaken in understanding the dream itself or he could have not actually seen what he thinks he saw. furthermore, if he asked for some guidance, it does not mean that it is the only good thing for him - other matters could also be good or even better.

    for example, a person does istekhara for marriage with a certain girl and it shows good; but then the marriage does not materialize. so will this person INSIST that he needs to marry the same girl?

    anyways, dreams of normal human beings are never considered a valid proof in Sharia; or else every one will do a certain thing and then claim that he was ordered by the Almighty, through his dream.

    yes, it is advisable to pursue or drop the matter if the istekhara was done by a pious person, and if the answer was clear (positive or negative).

    Look, give a proper well explained answer is what I am saying brother. There may be instances where you may not get into trouble for not following an answer however there are definately dire repurcussions for going against the Istikhara in other cases and you cannot deny that.

    Don't jump to conclusions so fast brother, for I never said that.

    What are the rules for something BECOMING WAJIB??

    So let me understand this, you ask the Creator His Counsel and then do what you want, is that what you are saying? bring your proof for your claim.

    and a scholar told me: the help of Allah ta'ala comes to succor the moment one does istikhara - no loss can result from the decision taken thereafter. Whatever the short-term effects may be, in the long term he shall realize that it happened for the best.

    Istikhara is the pillar of Trust that the Sufiya hold with a firm grip and it is their hallmark that they do Istikhara for everything and every matter small or large. There are many different methods- one being as mentioned from Shaykh Al Akbar Ibn Arabi (RehmatUllah Alai) which is two perform the Duha Salaat and then a general Istikhara every morning for the whole day for every matter within it. The other is to do specific Istikharas by Praying two Rakat and making the Dua. There is also a valid opinion that the two Rakat's are recommended but the Dua can be said without them and still be valid. There are many instances where a dream or feeling is not seen or felt and one simply consults experts BEFORE and after and simply goes with what he feels is correct (Imam Nawawi) WITHOUT PRECONCEIVED DETERMINATIONS on what he will do. Isha is the best time and one repeats the Istikhara over 7 nights although there is no harm asking more or less times than this as long as one does not say "I did Istikhara and Allah did not answer my Dua"

    Istikhara is a matter of Trust and the more you delegate trust to our Creator the safer you are.


    Allah knows Best
