Q: Is there anyone that you can refer me to, someone that can perform istikharah on my behalf? I have tried reading and performing but am not sure.
A: The purpose of Istikhaarah is to ‘consult’ with Allah Ta’aala, and through the blessing of this act, gain Barakah in the future endeavour. Istikhaarah should be done by the person who requires the assurance and not by anyone else. Do that towards which the heart is more inclined.
Allah Ta’aala knows best.
