Q: I made istikhara (2 prayers after ishaa and dua) but I got no response. I made it many times before but got no response.
My question is, can I make istikhara dua before I go to sleep? Can I pray 2 rakats istikhara after ishaa and then make the istikhara dua just before I go to sleep?
A: Yes, you may recite the dua after salaah as well as before retiring to bed.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
