Q: Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,
I was introduced to a brother for the purpose of marriage. We met in the presence of family and both sides were ready to move forward, Alhamduilllah. However, now they are telling me that their Istikhara was not favourable. Both his and his mother’s. They haven’t refused nor have they agreed to move forward. What should be done in such a situation? Should we not proceed? I am really confused at this point.
JazakAllah for your time.

The boys side, by them saying that their ‘Istikhara was not favorable,’ in essence are saying that they are not interested at this time in pursuing the matter anymore.
Do not be confused; just make dua that Allah (SWT) opens your doors in a house that is more accepting of you.
Allah certainly Knows Best.
