Dear Sister in Islaam, they must read that Du’aa 500 times with Durood Shareef 100 times before and 100 times after. As regard to Salatul Istikhaara, perform before sleeping two Rakaat Salaah and read the Du’aa of Istikhaarah sincerely and then sleep with Wudhoo facing the Qiblaah. Thereafter whatever decision prevails in your heart when you get up in the morning, regard it beneficial. If you do not get such feeling in one time, perform the same till you get such feeling. After seventh time, you will get that feeling, Inshaa Allaah.
It should be noticed that it is not necessary to see any dream or someone telling something concerning the thing one making Istikhaarah.
