Istikhara – Seeking Divine Guidance

We have been asked to rely on Allah(azwj) and His Divine messengers(asws) to
have ‘Tawakal’ and keep on praying for what have been made permissible
and just for us. However, sometimes, we have to take certain decisions,
which may have good or bad outcome and may have significant impact on our
lives at later stages. In addition, one would also like to have Divine blessings
for his/her action(s), no matter how important or unimportant these are. For
these reasons, we have been advised by Masomeen(asws) to first carefully
analyse the situation and then have consultation with wise and trustworthy
brothers-in-faith and preferably seek Divine guidance through supplications
and Istikhara.
