Q: When reading salaatul istikhara, can one ask if a certain thing will be a success if done? Is it a valid question to ask?


A: Istikhaarah is not done for these types of reasons. These types of matters should be referred to some righteous experienced aalim.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
