Istikhara Dua for Love marriage
If you want to get married to the person you lov, then there is no harm in it. Islam gives you the complete freedom to get marry with your choice. But before saying yes to him/her if you have any doubt related to your love then you must perform istikhara to clear your all doubts. Through Istikhara Allah (SWT) will guide you about your benefit. The first mistaken belief about Istikhara is that it can only be performed on a special occasion or for a specific purpose. It is not correct; Istikhara can be performed each day even at any time.
Anyone can perform Istikhara for life’s small, big decision and even for the general direction in life. After Istikhara Allah (SWT) will guide you through dream but it is not necessary that you will get guidance only through dream. You will get direction through other signs from your daily routine also. A Good dream is a positive sign, and a bad dream is a sign of warning about the matter for which you are doing Istikhara. If you don’t see any dream no issue, it is suggested that you should carry on your Istikhara for 7 days. After Istikhara you can take your decision without any anxiety and tension. The method of doing Istikhara for love marriage is mentioned below
Be in the state of Wadu
Before going to bed offer Two Rakat Nafil with the Niyyat of Istikhara. In the First rakaat of Nafil recite Surah Al-Kafiroon after Surah Al-Fatiha. In the second Rakat recite Surah Al-Ikhlas after Surah Al-Fatiha. After offering nafil recite Durood Shareef 3, 7 or 11 times in the start. Remember one thing if you are reciting Durood Shareef 3 times in the start then you must recite 3 times in the end.
Between Durood Shareef recite “DUA FOR ISTIKHARA” which is given below
Allahumma inni astakhiruka bi’ilmika, Wa astaqdiruka bi-qudratika, Wa asaluka min fadlika al-’azim Fa-innaka taqdiru Wala aqdiru, Wa ta’lamu Wala a’lamu, Wa anta ‘allamu l-ghuyub. Allahumma, in kunta ta’lam anna *hadha-l-amra (this matter) Khairun li fi dini wa ma’ashi wa’aqibati amri (or ‘ajili amri wa’ajilihi) Faqdirhu li wa yas-sirhu li thumma barik li Fihi, Wa in kunta ta’lamu anna *hadha-lamra (this matter) shar-run li fi dini wa ma’ashi wa’aqibati amri (or fi’ajili amri wa ajilihi) Fasrifhu anni was-rifni anhu. Waqdir li alkhaira haithu kana Thumma ardini bihi
During this Dua when the word “HAZAL AMRA” came to think about your need for doing Istikhara. “HAZAL AMRA” came two times in DUA-E-ISTIKHARA, so think twice during Dua about your need. After completing Dua Sleep toward facing the KHANA KABA. In shaa Allah you will get your answer through your dream or Allah (SWT) will show you by any means. If you do not get your answer do Istikhara for 7 days regularly, you will get the answer.
