1 Benefits From al-Istikharah Prayer Compiled & translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Jabir bin Abdullaah –RadhiAllaahu anhu- said the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- used to teach us al-Istikharah (a prayer said for seeking blessings in carrying out a decision) for all matters, just like he used to teach us a chapter from the Qur’aan, he would say: If any of you intends to undertake a matter then he should pray two Rakah other than an obligatory prayer then he should say f t fas nkAF± ² kmyKzf³Sl´ faKLµdF± µNKM faD lF¶µ·F ¸fw faK tfrµ¹Dqk b fº»rK¹Sqf Tµ·F ¸fw faK¼SLK³k b fº»YK½f Tµ·F ¸ ¾¿ nk À sm»hÁLl´ ÂF lfw »mFLµ³f tfw ² »rK¹SQF ¸ ÂF lfw »rK¹Sq µMF¶Sl´ ´FÃfH ÁÄF ¸ »mFLµ³f t fŵÆDÇ SÄk À sm»hÁLl´ ² kBW» y»gSl´ »ÈÂÁLfÉ fŵnF ¸fw »mFLµÉF ¸ kÊkjÂfÉ FËÂFQ µwF ¸ ÌkRµMF ¸ KÍf ÎKQÂfÉfw ¾KÏÂf³fMfw ¾k ÆÐKÑ ¾K± ¾K l ÒRµyfÓ fR ÔRfÏ fRµMF¶Sl´ ´FÃfH ÁÄF ¸ »mFLµ³f t fŵÆDÇ SÄk Àfw KÕyK± ¾K l µºkrÂf b smD Ö ¾K l »×µR¿Øf Ðfw ¾K l »×µr»¹SQÂF± KÕKLkjÙfw ÌkRµMF ¸ KÍf ÎKQÂfÉfw ¾KÏÂf³fMfw ¾k ÆÐKÑ ¾K± ¾K l FËÂFQ µwF ¸ ÌkRµMF ¸ k b ¾k ÆKÚµrF ¸ smD Ö FÄÂFÇ DÛµyfÜ fRµyf½Sl´ f¾K l µr»¹SQ´fw »ÕµÆfÉ ¾k ÆS±kRµÝ´fw ¾¿ ÆfÉ »ÕS±kRµÝÂF± KÕKLkjÙfw ÌkRµMF ¸ kÊkjÂfÉ ¾K± O Allaah I request of You with Your knowledge, and by Your Power I seek capability, and I ask of you of your great favour, since indeed You are the One who is able while I am not, and You know and I do not, and You are the One who knows the unseen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
