Dua-e-Istikhara (Suggestions from God)

"Istikhara" means to seek goodness from
Allah (Exalted is He), meaning when one intends to do an important task they do istikhara before the
task. The one who does the istikhara is as if they request Allah Almighty that, O the Knower of Unseen
(Exalted is He) guide me if this task is better for me or not?

According to Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 21, Number 263:Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah :The Prophet
(Sallal Laho Alaihi Wasallam) used to teach us the way of doing Istikhara, in all matters as he taught us
the Suras of the Quran. He said, "If anyone of you thinks of doing any job he should offer a two Rakat
prayer other than the compulsory ones and say the above dua (after the prayer)"
WAY TO PERFORM ISTIKHARA:
First pray two cycles of ritual prayer [raka'] such that in the first raka' after Surah Fatiha (Allhamd…)
recite Surah al-Kafirun (Chapter 109) and in the second raka' after Fatiha (Allhamd…) recite Surah al-
Ikhlas (Chapter 112) and after finishing prayer [salam] then recite this (supplication/dua'): Dua in Arabic
Text above.
TRANSLITERAION of Dua e Istikhara:
Allahumma inni astakheeroka bi ilmik. Wa'astaq-diroka biqudratika. Wa'as'aloka min fadlikal-azeem.
Fa'innaka taqdiru wala aqdir. Wata lamo wala-a lam. Wa'anta-allamul ghuyoob. Allahumma in kunta ta
lamu anna (hathal-amra*) khair ul-lee fi deenee wa ma'ashi wa aakibati amri aw aajili amri wa'ajilah,
faqdorho lee, wayassirho lee, somma-bariko lee fih. Wa'in kunta talamo anna (hathal-amra*) sharrul-lee
fi deenee. Wama ashi. Wa aakibati amri, Wa aajila amri. Wa'ajilaho. Fasrifho annee. Wasrifnee anh.
Waqdur leyal-khayra haytho kaana somma ardini bih.

* When making the du'a, the actual matter or decision should be mentioned instead of the words "hathal-
amra" ("this matter").
TRANSLATION of Dua-e-Istikhara:
"O Allah! I seek goodness from Your Knowledge and with Your Power (and Might) I seek strength, and
I ask from You Your Great Blessings, because You have the Power and I do not have the power. You
Know everything and I do not know, and You have knowledge of the unseen. Oh Allah! If in Your
Knowledge this action ------------------------------------------------ (which I intend to do) is better for my
religion and faith, for my life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then make it
destined for me and make it easy for me and then add blessings [baraka'] in it, for me. O Allah! In Your
Knowledge if this action is bad for me, bad for my religion and faith, for my life and end [death], for
here [in this world] and the hereafter then turn it away from me and turn me away from it and whatever
is better for me, ordain [destine] that for me and then make me satisfied with it."
How many times?
It depends. Sometimes it takes only once to get the answer and sometimes it takes longer. It is better to
do istakhara seven (7) times and right after reciting the supplication, given above, sleep with ablution
(people who cannot keep the ablution for longer times due to health problems do not have to worry
about ablution before falling asleep) facing the direction of the Qibla (facing the Qibla is not required
but it is a Sunnat of our beloved Prophet Peace Be Upon Him). It is better to recite salutations (durood/
salawat) on the Prophet Allah's Grace and Peace be upon him before and after the above Dua
(supplication).
Answer to your Dua:
If in the dream one sees whiteness (means any thing white in color, for example: milk, white paper,
white sky, white clothes, white light etc.) or greenness (means any thing green in color, for example:
grass, plants, trees, green clothes, green light etc.) then understand that this task is better and if one sees
redness (means any thing red in color, for example: blood, red clothing, red fruit, red light etc.) or
blackness (means any thing black in color, for example: black water, black light, black clothings, black
sky, black wall etc. ) then understand it is bad and avoid it.
If do not remember any dream or do not see any colors then follow your heart. Whatever intention grows
stronger in your heart regarding your targated work follow it after seven days of Istakhara.

Dua when intending sexual intercourse with your wife

Narrated ibn 'abbas: The Prophet said, "If anyone of you, when intending to have a sexual intercourse with his wife, says:

"In the name of Allah. O Allah! Protect us from Satan and also protect what you bestow upon us"
