Definition of Istikharah
Istikharah means to seek goodness from Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. Before starting any important task, one should perform Istikharah. The person performing Istikharah, in fact, requests in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ.‘O the Knower of the Ghayb (unseen) عَزَّوَجَلَّ.bestow upon me a signal showing whether this work is better for me or not.’
Four Madani pearls related to Istikharah
From Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, Ameer-e-Dawat-e-Islami, Abu Bilal Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه.
- It is impossible to acquire definite knowledge of Ghayb through Istikharah.
- Some people claim that they are visited by so-called ‘pious ancestors’. These are, in fact jinns who make false claims to be pious ancestors. Pious people do not gather a crowd of men and women by entering the body of humans. Ala Hazrat رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said, ‘The same false people ask jinns by invoking and raising them that what will happen in so and so court case? What would be the outcome of such and such task? This is Haraam. Jinns are absolutely ignorant of knowledge of Ghayb (unseen). Asking them anything about future events is logically utter stupidity and Haraam in Shari’ah and it is Kufr in case of having belief for them having knowledge of Ghayb.’ (Fatawa Africa, answer to question no. 102) (i.e., when the so called ‘pious ancestors’ arrive, they are actually the jinns that answer the questions. Asking them anything about future is Haraam and having belief that jinns have the knowledge of Ghayb is Kufr.)
- If any necromancer says that your close relative has casted a spell and informs the first letter or even his full name, despite all this information, do not believe him at all, because negative assumption of any Muslim is Haraam. Due to such carelessness of these necromancers, sometimes, many households face destruction.
- The grief-stricken Islamic brothers should travel in Dawat-e-Islami’s Madani Qafilah and make Du’a (supplication) over there. If one cannot travel then he should make someone else travel his place.
