Dua For Istikhara In English
O Allah, I seek the counsel of Your Knowledge, and I seek the help of Your Omnipotence, and I beseech You for Your Magnificent Grace. Surely, You are Capable and I am not. You know and I know not, and You are the Knower of the unseen. O Allah, if You know that this matter [then mention the thing to be decided] is good for me in my religion and in my life and for my welfare in the life to come, – [or say: in this life and the afterlife] – then ordain it for me and make it easy for me, then bless me in it. And if You know that this matter is bad for me in my religion and in my life and for my welfare in the life to come, – [or say: in this life and the afterlife] – then distance it from me, and distance me from it, and ordain for me what is good wherever it may be, and help me to be content with it.
Whoever seeks the counsel of the Creator will not regret it and whoever seeks the advice of the believers will feel confident about his decisions.
Allah said in the Qur’an: “And consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah.”
The word Istikhara means directly :
, ask Allah to guide you to the right kind of action regarding a job or act. ‘Khair’ means good (ask Allah to guide you to the right answer). It means that you do not ask Allah to show you a vision through a dream.
I have many Hodja friends who do it in important cases. For example, they are invited to a TV show, but they really do not know what to do. If they have to go or not, if it is good to leave, is it useful for the public to watch it on this television show; then, in one example, my friend did that Istikhara, and in his dream, you are guided by God’s help, maybe angels come to your dream, or maybe jinn Muslims (you do not know not exactly what is happening in your dream, but what you see is obviously not a bad figure for surely)
This should not be used all the time, because I believe God has already established the system, so what we do in this system is live our life, pray for things maybe, ask for acts, but in reality even if we do not ask for things and just pray for Allah its really already set and designed perfectly. As if you do not pray for health or money; it does not mean that you will die and be poor. It’s already defined and designed; but of course, you can ask for anything that is a good action. Because Allah told us Ask me! Do not ask statues, trees, objects, just ask me!
It literally means that God wants us to ask him if we want something.
He is the owner of the property and we are guests, so no one in the world can give us anything without God’s permission. Even in Satanism, people who worship the devil ask the devil; it’s allowed by God that they get things from the devil, if he did not allow, you could not get the magic you would, it does not matter Voodoo or Boodoo 🙂
