Assalamuleykum WA Rahmatullahe wa Barakatullah,
Respected Imaam sahib, thank sfor your reply for num.22, I ‘ll ask for forgiveness forsure inshaALLAH, but does that mean if any imaam knowingly still did istekhara for one, is he a mockery ?
and lastly istekhara cannot be prayed for anyone , but can a mother pray , or sis . or aclose friend pray on behalf?
One must search for a true and Allaah-fearing Aalim as you look for a good and experienced doctor when one is in need. However, it is not approved by the Ahadith to ask someone for performing Istikhaarah regardless of ties and relation.
