What does istikharah meant

And we should not be impatient after our dua. We do not put Allah on a timetable. And we should not expect some sort of miracle, or a dream full of signs and symbols. These things are not necessary. We simply say our prayers and trust that Allah has heard us and will answer us in the way that is best.

What needs to be noted is that the answer to one’s istikhara prayer does not come simply in the form of dreams and feelings but in how Allah facilitates and unfolds events for an individual after he or she genuinely strives to do what is best. Take the most effective means, which includes consulting those whose knowledge and wisdom one has confidence in, and place your trust in Allah.

Pray.
Strive to do what is best.
Consult those whose knowledge and wisdom one has confidence in.
Place your trust to Allah.
Answer does not come simply in the form or dreams or feeling.

Be patience.

We do not put Allah on a timetable!
