 Another method of Istikharah

 A detailed method of Sunnah Istikharah is the one which has been explained in detail before, but it should be noted that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) suggested a short istikharah even in case of lack of time and quick decision so as not to be deprived of istikharah. Be that as it may, the masnun method of istikharah that has been offered before, is when a person has time and opportunity to perform istikharah. Man has to make such a quick and quick decision, there is no opportunity to pray after reciting two rak’ats, because suddenly something comes up and he has to decide immediately whether to do it or not, there is not enough time to do two The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) himself suggested a short Dua of Istikhara for such an occasion, which is:

   10. Istikhara Dua Short.

   اَللّٰہُمَّ خِرْ لِیْ وَاخْتَرْ لِیْ․

 O Allah! Please tell me which path I should take, just read this du’aa ‘. In addition to this, another du’aa’ that the Holy Prophet (sws) has instructed is:

 اَللّٰہُمَّ اہْدِنِیْ وَسَدِّدْنِیْ ․ 

 O Allah! Guide me and keep me on the right path.

 اَللّٰہُمَ اَلْہِمْنِیْ رُشْدِیْ .

 O Allah! Instill in my heart the right path, recite the dua that comes to mind, and if the dua does not come in Arabic, then pray in English or Urdu, saying: O Allah, I have encountered this dilemma.

     11. What is Istikhara?

 Istikharah means seeking goodness and goodness in a matter, that is, turning to Allah Almighty in all your permissible deeds in daily life and asking Allah for goodness, kindness and guidance in this matter. To think that it conveys any news is a great misunderstanding which has given rise to many misunderstandings which are mentioned in detail below. It is narrated in the hadiths from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

 Translation: When any one of you intends to do something, he should perform two rak’ats of Nafl in addition to the obligatory prayers.

 Istikhara in the light of the Prophetic Hadith.

 Translation: Hazrat Jabir bin Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to teach Istikharah to his Companions in all matters with the same importance as he used to teach Surah of Holy Quran.

 Not doing Istikharah is deprivation and misfortune

 That is, giving up and not doing Istikharah from Allah Almighty is considered as misfortune and misfortune for man.

 Similarly, in a hadith, it is narrated from Hazrat Saad bin Waqas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

 Translation: The happiness and good fortune of man is to perform Istikharah in his deeds and it is unfortunate that he has given up Istikharah, and the good fortune of man is to be content with every decision of Allah regarding him. He should be angry with Allah’s decision.

       12. The one who performs Istikharah will not fail in life.

 In a hadith, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

 That is, a person who practices Istikharah in his affairs will never fail and a person who consults in his affairs will never face embarrassment or remorse for why I did this work or why I did not do this work. What? Because he did what he did after consultation and if he did not do it after consultation, he will not be ashamed.

 In this hadeeth which says that the one who performs Istikharah will not be successful, it means that the one who performs Istikharah will have success in terms of the outcome, even if at some point he thinks that what happened is not good. But in spite of this thought, success will be for the person who keeps on reciting Istikharah from Allah Almighty, similarly, the person who works in consultation will never regret it, because God forbid, even if that deed goes bad, his I will be satisfied in my heart that I did not do this on my own and on my own, but after consulting my friends and elders, now it is up to Allah Almighty to decide as He wills. Therefore, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) advised Dobatan that whenever there is a dispute in a matter, do two things, one istikharah and the other istisharah, meaning advice.
