Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
My friend wants to get married however her parents are taking time in looking for a husband for her. She fears that she is getting older and would like to marry as soon as possible. Please can you tell me what prayers she needs to do to seek guidance in Allah to find a good husband?
1. The best of prayers are those make out of heart-felt need, not merely by the tongue, as the fuqaha have mentioned. [Radd al-Muhtar]
2. It is recommended to perform the Prayer of Need (salat al-haja) and Prayer of Seeking Guidance (salat al-istikhara) in such situations. See: (http://www.sunnipath.com) for details.
And Allah alone gives success
