Clear by Istikharah

The scholars have mentioned that after the person prays Istikhārah prayer, his decision will become clear by a way of a number of affairs:

• The affair will be made easy for him — it will become easy after it had been difficult. The hardships will be removed and the affair will be made easy. This is proof that this affair is better for him.

• His heart will become open towards an affair. For example: If someone is trying to decide between two matters, then he prays Istikhārah prayer and his heart becomes inclined toward one of the affairs and not the other. This is a sign that this affair is better for him.

• The person may also see a righteous dream which clarifies that this affair is better for him, but it is not a requirement that he sees a dream. Some people say to us, “I prayed Istikhārah 100 times, but I did not see a dream!” It is not required that one see a dream — the matter could become clear through other means, as we mentioned.

• For example [from these other means]: If you are wavering concerning marrying a woman due to your lack of wealth, so you pray Istikhārah, and the next morning someone calls you and says, “If you get married, I will pay your dowry for you.” This is a sign that this affair is better for you because it has been made easy for you.
