I dreamt that I was reliving myself after making istikhara for a marriage proposal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am in the mid thirties and shattered due to no decent marriage proposal. Recently, a guy with his family came to see me. I was really hoping for a proposal from them. The same day I made istikhara, and in a dream I saw myself in a bathtub, excreting solid waste (feces). I also saw my 5 years old nephew, doing his potty in the toilet (I saw yellow waste coming out of him). I am extremely sad since this dream. Most of the time i don’t get proposal if I like someone, and sometimes I don’t like who are interested in me. And I am too depressed because of this.


A: If you are uncertain, then we suggest that continue to make istikhaara and if your heart is pleased with the proposal you have received and your parents are pleased with the boy (his deen, character, mannerisms, etc.) and the family of the boy, then you may accept the proposal. Alhamdulillah the dream you had seen is a good dream. 

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