Istikhara is a powerful Islamic prayer used for spiritual guidance from Allah so that you have more choice in your life.
Choice is critical – choices are neither better nor worse than each other – it’s up to you. It’s like the menu at the restaurant – do you have salmon or steak?
A more modern uptake on the problem of choice is ta ask, “What is it?”, “Can I change it?”, “How can I change it?” Asking these questions, and being in the question is a powerful method for change and transformation in your life. It easy to get caught up on a particular method or direction for changing your life, as if there is no other choice. When you find yourself thinking there is only one way, then you are in judgment about the situation and you are removing better ways of changing your life.
Istikhara is a supplementary prayer in Islam, which means it is not part of the obligatory prayers each day, and it can be done pretty much at any time. Moslem scholars like to hem in anything Islamic so that only those who properly follow the religion can use Istikhara, but in my experience this is not the case. Allah is infinitely more generous with His Blessings.
The Istikhara prayer in Arabic is quite short, and there is a gap in the text where you insert the subject or question or desire to know about. The prayer is for the guidance from Allah – you are asking for Divine Guidance and Intervention. The information gained can be in the form of a sign in a dream, or you have more clarity. Istikhara is a powerful method for allying yourself with the Divine.
One use of Istikhara is for help in black magic or finding out the intentions of your enemies.
