Istikharah Prayer

What is Istikharah?

Istikharah is a du’a made in conjunction with non-obligatory prayer; it is a voluntary prayer that Prophet Mohammad recommended to anybody wanting to do something but feeling hesitant about doing it.  It is seeking guidance in order to make the right decision.  It is reported that Prophet Muhammad would teach his companions to make Istikharah just as he would teach them verses from the Quran.  One should pray two units of non-obligatory (voluntary) prayer and then say the du'a of Istikharah.
