Istikharah with the Qur'an
Is Istikhara correct with computers and software? Can they be ignored?
The wise leader of the Islamic Revolution, Grand Ayatollah Khamenei: There are different cases. There is no problem if it is according to the usual methods.
Hazrat Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi: Whenever the verses of the beginning of one of the pages of the Qur'an are reflected without prior notice, there is no problem.
Hazrat Ayatollah Sistani: The method of Istikharah is available in Mafatih al-Jannan.
Hazrat Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani: There is no problem if the narrator is in that field and can have a proper and close to the real interpretation of the Holy Quran.
Also, one of the mujtahids and teachers of the seminary has answered as follows:
Ayatollah Alavi Gorgani: There is no problem if it is done correctly, although in our opinion, paying attention to such istikharas is a matter of doubt.
