Consulting parents with regards to nikaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Me and the person I want to marry did Istikhara for ourselves. Each of us did it thrice. My dreams were as follows: 1. I was in a house looking for some clothes. I look out of the window and it’s a green land with huge trees and I see my brother coming towards me in white. 2. I saw myself walking on snow. 3. I saw the lawn of my house.

His dreams were as follows:

1. Someone rings the bell at night and his mom says not to go out, he does and there is no one.

2. He is in a plane and the air hostess are wearing maroon uniform.

3. He is standing outside a house and someone is throwing pebbles at him. He goes up to the roof and there is no one. Can you please tell the interpretations of the dreams?


A: Discuss the matter with your parents and elders. If after following the necessary procedures you find the character, ways, habits, deeni values, etc. of the boy to be acceptable and your family elders are also happy and all of you are positive in this regards then you may go ahead. Don’t do anything without your parent’s consultation.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
