Mera name Raza hai mera ques.ye hai k Istikhara kia hota hai or kis trah kia jata hai?plz tell me
Istikhaarah is a way of seeking Allaah’s advice and guidance in permissible matters. A person who performs Istikhaarah before initiating something will never regret. The method of performing Istikhaarah is that one should 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 his heart when he gets up in the morning, should regard it beneficial. If one does not get such feeling in one time, perform the same till one gets such feeling. After seventh time, one 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.
