I am looking to get married to a man of my choice. I have no doubts at all when it comes to him and my parents also approve of him. He is a practicing Momin, honest and hard working. However, we are confused when it comes to his family. A few members in his immediate family appear to be highly problematic. Will it be appropriate to perform an istikhara in this case, will it be valid?

If you are not in a state of confusion about him, but you are confused about his family, you can put a condition in the contract that he provides you with a separate home, and that his family does not interfere in your lives
