Can Salat el isstikhara help me to understand and to answer questions related to my professional life ? For example, I do not find my place, I am 33 years old and still did not find the meaning of my life, what I want to do, which job is fiting me, what I can provide to siciety and be paid for my services.

I am reading about ikigai for example, well, It can be good to keep positive thinking and optimism, but I wonder if Isstikhara is meant to be for my situation.

  • We have a lots of questions on istikhara and none of the answers satisfies your need?

    @Medi1Saif indeed good questions about istikhara, but almost all of them are about mariage

  • But the hadith of istikhara actually answers your inquiry and it should be mentioned in some of these.

Assalamu alaikum, the solution for your situation is reading and learning Quran. Allah subhanahu va ta'ala says: "I did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me." Adh-Dhariyat(56) Allah created us to worship only for Him. That is the meaning of our life. We should perform all salahs on time.

  • This actually does nothing to answer the question.
