Question : #514 Category: Miscellaneous
Subject: assistance required
Question: It is said that if you have a task to complete but are unsure as to its feasibility, you should read the name of Allah - Ya badee’u – before falling asleep and you will receive guidance in a dream. I have done this for 4 days, with Wuzhu and facing towards Qiblah when sleeping, but it has not worked. What should I do? Is there any other way I can receive guidance for the feasability/technique of completion of a task? I know of Istikhaara but that has never worked when I do it. Is there anything else? Or any way I can ensure these two ways work?
Answer: Salam Alaykum

Doing such prayers and actions are good but not a condition in getting guidance.
If you want to get guidance from Allah we must go to the Representatives of God which is the Prophet and Imams. During the occultation of Imam Zaman we go to the Maraja or Islamic Scholars who are certified by the Hawza or Islamic Seminaries in either Qom or Najaf and ask those who have studied there to give us Guidance in our daily or personal affairs.
