The answer to an Istikhara is not necessarily in the form of a dream. It may
also be in the form of a feeling in the heart . Upon making Istikhara if one
is content, then it is a positive sign. If you have seen a dream and did not
understand its meaning, then you should refer to a person who is able to
interpret the drean for you. We furhter advise that in making decisions you
should also make mashwara(consultation) with reliable people.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
