my aunt asked some maulana to do istekhara for my nikkah in response to a boy's proposal to marry me. istekhara was positivie for all the 3 times. this gave me courage and i started talking to that guy. we grew close to each other, but now as things are getting worse and we fight on daily basis, i feel i should get out of this relationship but i fear Allah will get angry on me if I do this because istekhara was positive. what should i do?
Your first priority should be to make the marriage work and you should make every effort for that. However, if all efforts to salvage the marriage fail then there is no harm in seeking divorce or termination of Nikah. Divorce is legal in Islam and it is there for situations where the husband and wife agree that they can work together anymore within the marriage.
And Allah knows best.
