Should We Read Istikhara Salah Before Getting Married?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My fiance and I were suppose to get married this month but he lost his job so he cancelled the wedding and now he is reading isthikara Salaah to see if we should get married after being with me for almost 3 years and I’m so scared and worried about a negative answer because I’m already in love with him. Please give me some advice as to whether it’s right to read it when we came so far and so close to getting married. I am so worried I feel sick. When I first met him I read isthikara and dreamt of his mum giving me a gift and now he dreamt of a black cloth. I’m so worried really. Please give me some advice.


A: Make taubah for the haraam relationship that you were involved in. Cut off all communications with him.

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