An Introduction to Istikharah in Islam

It is obvious that every person needs a life partner who trusts them, understands them, and stands by their side in every walk of life. Your partner is the person with whom you can share all your worries, happiness, dreams, and nightmares without any fear of judgment. That’s why most people wish to marry the person they are most compatible with to lead a healthy, prosperous, and trouble-free life together.

Istikharah is performed to consult Allah and seek his guidance in the important decisions of life, like marriage, whether arranged or love. The most common problems that cause trouble in love marriages are family objections, the difference in traditions and social status of the families, lifestyle differences between the partners, or dissimilarity in religion or caste of the families. In this new era of modernism, most individuals wish to marry the person they truly adore and tie the knot in a love marriage. In Islam, marriage is the only Halal way for people in love to stay together for the rest of their life. And Istikharah before marriage is the oldest and the most reliable method in Islamic history to know if it is the right decision for you.

Duas & Wazaif for Love Marriage

It is advised to practice Istikharah for your love marriage to fight against its obstacles.

The wazifa for love marriage can either be the Holy Names of Allah Almighty or verses from the Quran. But consistency in practicing the wazaif is necessary to succeed for whichever method is suggested.
