Permission to move and istikhara


Asalaamu Alaikum to all the mashaykh.

My husband and I are making istikhara to move to UK. He’s unhappy at work and has an opportunity to specialise and practice as a GP there. My family are in the UK and I’m having difficulties with my in-laws.

Regarding istikhara, I dreamed I lived in a ramshackle house with broken walls, my in-laws inside the house and people were coming to make dhikr. I missed the dhikr, and felt terrible. My aunt entered the house with beautiful noor, and I wished to be like her. In reality my aunt’s mother-in-law recently left her household, she also had a hard time. Is my resentment towards my in-laws hurting me spiritually? Should I get distance like my aunt? I ask forgiveness for myself and them daily. I also dream of my family.


audhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem,

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,

wa `alaykum salam,

If you and your husband are unhappy where you are, your husband has a good work opportunity in UK, and you have good family support there, then why not move?  The dream is a good indicator insha-Allah.
