Assalamu alaikum, Respected Sir, I would like to ask to that can I do istekhara for particular thing twice. Like I had done istekhara for job a year ago and dreamt and the answer you gave was positive. i.e to go ahead with the job. Now after a year and 3 months I am facing problem with the collegues and sir as they are not paying me as to me what I deserve and only making me work hard. So should I do istekhara once again to see whether to stick to this same job or change it. I am confused and do not know what to do.
My second question is that if once the result of istekhara is positive for a perticular thing then why is that after wards people face problem in that. Because istekhara means consultation with Allah. So how come a thing become bad afterwards when once initially it has been found good and positive.
For expample one does istekhara for marriage as to whether the spouse would be good for him or her for their life and not for a year or so and the answer one gets after interpreting a dream is good or positive or just one knows by the inclination of the heart toward that. Then aftrer a year or so if some problem arises then can one do istekhara again to see if this marriage is good for him or her or not, and if after istekhara the result is negative then, should one give divorce. But before marriage or choosing a wife or husband the istekhara was good and positive then only they proceeded. So whats the point in making istekhara when the matter goes wrong after wards.
More over can one do istekhara for a any thing twice, like marriage, buying a house etc.
