Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.

Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.

 

Istikharah Prayer

By Aisha Stacey / 18 June 2013

What is Istikharah?

Istikharah is a du’a made in conjunction with non-obligatory prayer; it is a voluntary prayer that Prophet Mohammad recommended to anybody wanting to do something but feeling hesitant about doing it.  It is seeking guidance in order to make the right decision.  It is reported that Prophet Muhammad would teach his companions to make Istikharah just as he would teach them verses from the Quran.  One should pray two units of non-obligatory (voluntary) prayer and then say the du'a of Istikharah.

By Muslim Fitness / 24 May 2013
