I would like to seek your help with regards to my studies. I have two choices and one of them is science and the other to become a primary school teacher. I have performed istekhara myself but not received a clear reply as to what I should do. I want to chose a career which is best for my iman, deen and akhirat. My question is which path will be most successful for me, the teaching or science?
wa `alaykum salam,
Join to every non-fard salat the niyya of istikhara until Allah chooses for you in a clearer fashion.
Update Revised Answer: Insha-Allah you will benefit more people through teaching.
