No inclination after istikhaara

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I did istikhara for three consecutive days but I am unable to determine what is the outcome of this. I didnt experience any dream at all and neither do I feel my heart inclined to a particular outcome or decision. How to judge what is Allah’s suggestion in such a situation? Should I ask someone else to do istekhara for me and believe in the outcome and do accordingly? I did istekhara to seek Allah’s suggestion for a marriage proposal.


A: Consult with your seniors and with righteous experienced people and then continue.

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