Dua Istikhara

DUA’A 4 If you want to seek divine favour and guidance before doing or undertaking any work there are a few procedures, given in the following dua’a as known as istikharah.

Shaykh al Tusi has advised the seeker of istikhara to have a bath pray a 2 rakat salat and after the salam go into sajdah and recite 3 times :

ASTAKHEERULLAAHA FEE JAMEE-I UMOOREE KULLIHAA KHIYARATAN FEE AA’AFIYATIN

After reciting the du-a’a do what you feel just and suitable.

 

DUA’A 5 :  It is reported that Imam Sahib al Zaman has advised the believers to seek istikhara as under :

(i) keep in mind the task with the intention of doing it.

(ii) recite salawat 3 tinmes.

ALLAAHUMMA S’ALLI A’LAA MUH’AMMADIN WA AALI MUHA’AMMAD

(iii) hold a rosary(trasbih) at any place in your left hand anf from there with the right hand, start moving two beads at a time.  If only one bead remains in the end do what you want to do and if two beads are left do not do it.  Doing or not doing is optional not compulsory.

 

DUA’A 6  Refer to du-a’a 5 and do as under:

(i) keep in mind the task with the intention of not doing it

(ii) recite salawat as given in (ii) of du-a’a 5

(iii) do as advised in (iii) of du-a’a but if two beads are left in the end the work has to be done.  It becomes obligatory to carry it out, otherwise there is every likelihood of loss and deprivation.
