It is not necessary for the one who makes istikhaarah that he see anything to guide him to that which is best for him. Rather, when something is made easy for him after having made istikhaarah, then he should know that is what is good [for him].
And it is from falsehood to have someone else make istikhaarah for him, and wait to see something in a dream which would guide him to do [something] or leave [it].
Supplication is the weapon of the strong and the weak, and it is from the delights of the Prophets and the sincere, and with it they seek [aid from Allaah] to ward off all harm.
Is the invocation of peace upon the dead to be uttered only upon entering the graveyard, or can it also be uttered when passing by [the graveyard]?
Oh Abaa Sa’eed, indeed I heard you supplicating this night for the ones who oppressed you, until I wished to be amongst them. What led you to do this?
