Ask an Alim

Salah al-Istikhara

Question: 

 

When doing Istikhaara once a person has read the 2 Rakat Nafil and the Istikhaara dua can they still talk and carry out any necessary tasks or do they need to go straight to sleep?

Also if someone has just read the istikhaara dua before sleeping without the 2 Rakat Nafil and had dreams on 2 out of 3 nights would this still be classed as a sign from istikhaara or would the person be required to continue by completing the full istikhaara process including the nafils?

 

Answer: 

 

The Ulama have stated that the person should sleep straight after the Nafl prayers, in the state of ablution. Other important duties (around the home for instance) should be performed before the Salah. 

 

Istikhaara is when the whole process is done, not just the Nafls or just the Dua. If a person expects a wholehearted sign from Allah, then he should also perform the Salah wholeheartedly too.
