I hope to gain some insight into istikhara signs after dua. I made an istikhara last night on something this morning something happened to make my goals for the thing I prayed iatikhara for easier. Can one interpret that as a positive sign?
when we perform istikhara we depend on Allah (Swt) to make the decision on behalf of us. So when we proceed to do a task then if Allah find that out good for us then He will ease that task for us otherwise obstacles will be their.
Tanslation of istikhara Dua is given: TRANSLATION: "O Allah! I seek goodness from Your Knowledge and with Your Power (and Might) I seek strength, and I ask from You Your Great Blessings, because You have the Power and I do not have the power. You Know everything and I do not know, and You have knowledge of the unseen. Oh Allah! If in Your Knowledge this action (which I intend to do) is better for my religion and faith, for my life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then make it destined for me and make it easy for me and then add blessings [baraka'] in it, for me. O Allah! In Your Knowledge if this action is bad for me, bad for my religion and faith, for my life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then turn it away from me and turn me away from it and whatever is better for me, ordain [destine] that for me and then make me satisfied with it."
Yes, you may interpret it as a positive sign, but know that your answer to an istikhara isn't always going to become manifest in your life. You will NOT necessarily see a dream/vision/sign/etc. Allāh ﷻ will place a bit of inclination in your heart towards going through with the action or not (source)
