I wrote to you about marriage istikhara before about a dream where I saw myself delivering a baby. The man I was praying about was there in the delivery room watching. You said it was a positive dream. Also I dreamt we were easily talking, smiling and just happy in each others arms at different places. However, I just found out he has been talking to another woman for marriage. I was told by our mutual friend that even if he was interested in me his mother may not approve because I do not fit her criteria. I am a practicing Muslimah and work hard to give back to my community. I believe the love in my heart for this man is from Allah
I do dhikr to help me with obstacles. Please, please pray for me and advise me on how to go about wanting to marry him.
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham is praying for you in sha Allah. Keep positive, cheerful and trust in Allah whatever the outcome, as love is from Allah and tests are from Allah also. If he has already spoken to you in any way then keep communicating; if not then just make du`a, Rabbana atina fil dunya hasanatan wa fil akhirati hasanatan…
As for our good practice and helping others it is up to Allah how He rewards and when, not up to us. Yet He is more generous than our expectations.
