Assalamualaikum Ramadan Mubarak I would like to ask my brothers and sisters regarding solat istikharah. I never had a relationship before and now that I'm 25 I feel my time to marry is very close. I have been going out for dinners with my colleague for a month and we had admitted to each other that we do have feelings for each other but we still need to know each other better before being together, so officially, we are not a couple.*! My problem is I cannot stop thinking of him and it's affecting my daily life, so I decided to solat istikharah. The first night I felt calm and peaceful, so it's a good message for me to wait patiently for him. I started feeling doubtful again later on, so again I solat istikharah, but I was feeling very distracted by work problems and fatigue that I felt it wasn't done properly and I just feel more confused.*! I will solat istikharah again because I don't like this feeling of doubt and I need Allah's help. If he really is not the one for me, I need to suppress my feelings for him and find the strength to tell him to stop asking me out for dates, and us being colleagues, it would definitely result in awkwardness.*! My question is how have your results for solat istikharah been? We can only hope and fear Allah's greatness. So how has Allah guide you in making decisions this way? Do you have any advice for me?*! Sorry long post, but I really need some help here.
