I did istikhara whether to stay in my marriage with intention that if I left would there be someone better for me. I dream that a cat was following me and it had long claws and was scratching my arm however it did not harm me because I was wearing clothing so no blood or pain was felt. Can you please tell me what it means. I have been living as a first wife and husband has kids from another woman but I’m not being treated fairly and I want to get out but he is so manipulative and has done a lot behind my back. He says I don’t have a life and says I should be grateful for what I have. Please help.

Bismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm:
Wa `alaykumu s-salāmu wa rahmatu l-lāhi wa barakātuh,
It can mean that if you leave your husband, you will go through a lot of harship but you will be able carry it insh Allah.
To improve your situation, you may recite daily 100 to 1000x “HasbunAllah wa ni`ama ‘l-wakeel” and Salaat al-Tunjina 7 times as recommended on eshaykh previously by Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani for marriage problems.
And Allah knows best.
