دعاء الاستخارة – Istkhara

اللّهم أني أستخيرُك بعلمك وأستقدرك بقدرتك وأسألك من فضلك العظيم فإنك تَقْدِرُ ولا أَقَدِْر وتعلَمْ ولا أَعْلَمْ وأنت علاَّمُ الغيوب .

اللّهم إن كنت تعلمُ (( ذكر المسألة )) خيرٌ لي في ديني ومعاشي وعاقبة أمري فاقْدُرْه لي ويسِّرْه لي .

وإن كان هذا الأمرُ شراً لي في ديني ومعاشي وعاقبة أمري فاصرفّهُ عني وأصرفني عنه واقْدِرْ لي الخير حيث كان ، ثم رَضّتَيِ به .

Sorry for non-Arabic readers. The concept of istkhara is amazing to me. Here is the translation from about.com:

Oh Allah! I seek Your guidance by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power; I have none. And You know; I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things.

Oh Allah! If in Your knowledge, (this matter*) is good for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs, immediate and in the future, then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge, (this matter*) is bad for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs, immediate and in the future, then turn it away from me, and turn me away from it. And ordain for me the good wherever it may be, and make me content with it.

  1. My uncle Mr. Riaz Ahmed butt is of the age 40+ , and he is not even employed though has done M.COM. He is not even ready to marriage someone and incase his family members inquired about his idea on this issue , he reacts aggressively . And one another major problem is that even if their is some hope of his placement in any work , it fails out at the last moment.
