Q. I am making Nikah soon Inshallah. Can I request someone else to make Istikharah for me?
A. Ideally, Istikhaarah should be done by a person striving to make the best decisions themselves. However, it is permissible for a person to request another person to make Istikhaarah on their behalf.
If a person requests another person to make Istikhaarah on their behalf, they should be people that one trusts and they should know the person and the considerations related to a person’s circumstances.
