It seems that many people are mistaken about the issue of istikharaa and its method. I hereby try and clarify the matter and hope it will be beneficial to all.
Istikhaaraah means seeking advice of choice on a matter that a person has doubt about.Remember to make istikhaaraah on matters that are fardh and commanded by ALLAH, is not permissible, eg should i perform my salaah or not? .
Whenever confronted by an issue of importance and one finds that he is doubtful whether to do it or not, then he/she should make istikhaaraah and seek ALLAH’S advice on the issue. If the issue needs immediate answer then isstikhaarah is done by making du’aa and reaading thiss du’aa ” ALLAAHUMMA  khKHIRLI WAKHTAR LI” and the follow whatever direction the heart inclines to. IIf it is a major matter then one should perform the istikhaaraah before sleepingby performing two rakaats of nafl salaah and thereafter read the prescribe du’aa and try to go to sleep without speaking to anyone. Whaatever inclination one has the next morning is ones answer. The is no necessity for a dream as an answer. If one sees a dream then it can be used as an answer. Once an answer is found the istikhaaraah stops.One should not continue reading the istikhaaraah. However if a person still suffers doubt, then the istikhaarah should continue till there is an answer but it should not exceed seven days. If before the seven day an answer is found one should stop the istikhaaraah immediately. If doubt still remains after seven days then stop and stay away from it.

    Kisi par zor dena ya majboor karna kisi kam par sihr/jaadoo men daakhil he. Maaf karna men aisa kam nahin karsakta hoon.

    make incere toubah for your sins. The one who sincerely repents from their sins are like those who nwever sinned. Turn to ALLAH and ask him for his mercy and guidance.
