Assalam o Alaikum
there are three questions
1. what way is best for istekhara? if i do it myself or someone else do it for me? because i have read somewhere that a mind should not be completely inclined on one of the option before doing the istekhara. i am not confused about it but i just want to know what would Allah suggest for me!
2. i have searched the web and there are alot of ways to do istekhara that i found. so which one is best? or if i do it whch one looks feasible to me would the answer be correct or not. im jus in need of a right indication.
3. if after doin istekhara 7 times, my heart does not go with the result will it be harmfull in anyway? like religiously or worldly?
Please reply to me urgently!
