ummtaalib Posted March 24, 2014 Report Share Posted March 24, 2014 Istikhara It is narrated from Hazrat Jaabir (Radhiyallaho anho ) that Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to teach us the dua of istikharah for important matters in the same manner as he used to teach us the Surahs of the Qur’aan. He (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to say, ”When you intend doing any important work, then read two rakaats nafl salaat and thereafter read this dua.” (which is mentioned below) (Bukhariıpg. 944) Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam ) once remarked to Anas (Radhiyallaho anho) “O Anas! When you are undecided with regards to any matter,then seek counsel from your Rabb and do this seven times. Thereafter, whatever decision prevails in your heart regard it to be beneficial.” (Shaami Vol.1,pg. 507) Note: It is not necessary that one sees a dream or hears a voice. Asking another person to make Istikhaarah on one’s behalf is not substantiated from any hadith. To make Mashwarah (consultation) with someone else is Sunnah. It has been mentioned in the hadith that whomsoever makes Mashwarah will never regret and whomsoever makes Istikhaarah will never be unsuccessful. Salatu Haajah It is reported from Abdullah bin Abi Aufa (Radhiyallaho anho ) that Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam ) is reported to have said that whomsoever has any need from Allah Ta’ala or any person then he should make wudhu thoroughly. Thereafter he should perform two rakaats of salaah, recite praises on Allah Ta’ala and recite a durood sharief. Then he should recite this dua: (Tirmidhi‐Vol.1,pg.108 Shaami‐Vol.1) Hajat_Istikhaara.pdf *Note: the Du'a of Istikhara and Haajah are in the pdf above 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
