Day Questions

If a girl becomes unlawful to a man because of sodomy with her brother, then is there any atonement by which she becomes lawful again?

<p style="text-align: left;">Such an act does not have a religious Kaffara, and the prohibition is permanent.</p>

a) Is there any proof of Istikhara in the Sharia? b) Is everybody allowed to do Isikhara for himself? c) What are the rules of Istikhara and is it allowed to repeat an Isikhara for the same occasion?

There were narrations that explained the idea of Istikhara which is seeking goodness from almighty Allah when deciding to do a thing. This kind of Istikhara is the most common in the narrations. Books of narrations and supplications have explained certain ways to do the Istikhara. Yes, it is apparent in some texts that Istikhara is seeking help in deciding the better position in cases of hesitance and uncertainty in finding out the best choice for a person. These narrations did not specify the person that must do the Istikhara, so anyone is allowed to do it themselves or to ask others. There are no specific conditions for the Istikhara but it is supposed to be done when the right choice is unknown. Then it is meaningless to repeat it after it has been done.
