Making one istikharah for multiple purposes

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to ask if one can perform 2 rakat nafl namaz of istikhara for multiple purposes. Like, if I want to marry a girl and want to know if she is good for me or not and at the same time I want to know if a job is good for me or not which I have applied for. If yes, how can one determine which (dream or inclination) is for which purpose?


A: You rather do two separate istikhaarahs at separate times.

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