What is ISHTEKHARA? what is the procedure to do it. and how can i get the results?


(Fatwa: 122/130=B/1429)

Istikharah means consulting Allah in a important matter in order to know whether to go ahead or not. It goes like this, perform two rakaah salah and recite the dua of istikharah, then go to sleep. See the dua in Bahishti Zewar. Go to bed after performing the salah and reciting the dua. In the morning, see where your heart tends, do the work for which you did the istikharah if you find your heart tending to it.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
