Istekhara for marriage

I know a boy, whom I met through a matrimonial site. He is well educated and religious and I feel that with him I would be happy. I don’t know much details about him as he has not provided them. Also the final decision will be taken by his father. I have been doing istekhara for 7 days but no result and no inclination in my heart either for yes or for no. Please tell me any specific dua that would help me. Should I carry forward with him or not and some dua by which his father would agree for our nikah. Please make dua for us as we both like each other a lot.

Performing salaat

I have come from India last Sunday and I stay at the campus of University of Bridgeport. I don’t have car and I go to Mosque which is a mile far on cycle. Muslim brothers in the mosque told me not to come for Isha and Fajr because it is very risky coming on cycle and also I wear sunnat libaas. Shall I continue performing Isha and Fajr in my house or shall I go to mosque?

Qaza Roza

Assalamu alaikum,

I have question about Qaza roza for Ramzan. I planned on keeping a Qaza roza for one of my previously missed Ramzan fasts. Fajr here is at 6.05am and I woke up at 5.35am but I then went back to sleep with the intention of keeping Qaza roza if I wake up before Fajr time/Sehri time (this is what I remember but not completely sure). 

However I woke up at 6.35am. I heard from another Mufti that for Qaza roza, if one changes his intention of fasting before Suhoor, the fast is not considered valid as the neeyat was not made to fast whole heartedly. I am not completely sure if I made neeyat of fasting even if I went to sleep at 5.35am.

So my question is: Should I have still carried on the day as if I was fasting? Also, what should one do if it was supposed to be a qaza roza (assuming you said yes to my previous question) but one eats/drinks as if there is no fast. Should I just keep a Qaza for the broken Qaza or do I need to make kaffarah for this broken Qaza roza?

Please advice for the sake of Allah.

Jazakallah khair.
