Dream: Istikhara Sign?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I have a fiancée and performed about 20-30 istikharah for marriage in a week with proper dua in Arabic before sleep I keep repeating istikharah dua. The Dream occurred around 1.25 am I rarely dream before and hardly remember any. This dream happened at my parents but actually I live in different city because of work. After the dream I felt relieved even though I don’t know the meaning. The Dream:
Somebody knocked the door of my parents at night. I feel something bad behind the door (the feeling was very real). My mom came and opened it without hesitation. I wanted to warned her but it’s too late. That person outside (I can’t see man or woman) take something and run away. I am not sure if the person take something from my mom or just grab something from our house. I started to chase, it was pitch black night and I felt really scared (the feeling was very real). The dream ended, I woke up. Question: What does this dream means? Should I go ahead to marry her?

After istikharah the main point is the inclination of heart. If your heart is tending towards that proposal and there is no Shariah hindrance then it may be finalized with the advice of the family members. No decisive opinion can be established on the basis of dream. Also each dream carries various interpretations. Sometimes it is quite opposite to what it looks. However, you may follow your heart inclination after the istikharah.

Allah knows Best!
