Losing eagerness to do something after Istikhaarah
Fatwa No: 290971


Assalamu alaikkum. Jazakkallah for your kind response always.May Allah grant you more and more knowledge and make Barakah!(stable Increase!)BTW,now my problem is, I had joined in a Madrasa for a 2 years course,which happens only in weekend from this January.Even though I made the earlier payments and registered as well as eagerly, at last moment I had no idea to go to the classes! nothing happened worst, nobody demotivated but it was hard to me to go! I am embarrassed whats happening with with me! i performed Isthikhara as well, though still I have no motivation! but seriously it makes me feel very bad.My question is,even after Isthikhara,my Mashoora is not going and but do self study at home,even I use to love those kind of sittings, than do it alone.And it made me to believe that this decision came from Allah, but someof my friends say,its a kindof play and misguide from shaitan! I'm extremely afraid of this. please make me it clear.because, after this I really feel a heavy burden in heart!May Allah bless You.


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

We do not know why this happened to you, but if you had performed the Istikhaarah prayer, then you should be content with what happened after the Istikhaarah and ask Allaah to bring goodness from it. If Allaah turns you away from these sittings, then ask Allaah to bless you with something better. If Allaah decrees this study for you, then you should ask Allaah to bless it for you and help you, and you should seek refuge in Allaah from laziness.

You should protect yourself by saying the morning and evening Athkaar (remembrances), and you may also read Ruqyah. For more benefit on Ruqyah against magic, envy and being possessed by jinn, please refer to Fatwa 88705 and 84806.

Allaah Knows best.
