Salat-al-Istikhara in Urdu

Salat-al-Istikhara is the special prayer that we do in Islam to ask Allah to guide us to the best course of action in any matter. There are many misconceptions about the Istikhara prayer, so we have provided many Istikhara resources on this website and will continue adding to them Insha'Allah. Please browse the front page menus to see some of the other postings on Istikhara.

For those of you who speak and read Urdu, here is the Istikhara duaa in Urdu, and the English meaning below that.

Salat al-Istikhara in Urdu

Salat-al-Istikhara meaning in English:

"O Allaah, I seek Your counsel by Your knowledge and by Your power I seek strength and I ask You from Your immense favour, for verily You are able while I am not and verily You know while I do not and You are the Knower of the unseen. O Allaah, if You know this affair - and here he mentions his need - to be good for me in relation to my religion, my life, and end, then decree and facilitate it for me, and bless me with it, and if You know this affair to be ill for me towards my religion, my life, and end, then remove it from me and remove me from it, and decree for me what is good wherever it be and make me satisfied with such."

    • Ismail,

      Please read the information provided on this website about istikhara. We are not a business who do istikharas for people, nor is this the Islamic way. You and the girl in question are the ones who want to marry, so you should both do Istikhara yourselves. At the same time, please be wary that Rasul(sws) said 'nikah without wali is invalid, invalid, invalid'. If you have any fear of Allah, you will refrain from encouraging any girl to marry you against her parents wishes.

      If you have any further questions, please log in and submit your question as a separate post.

      May Allah guide us all, aameen!

      • MUJHE KYA KARNA CHAHIYE YEH TO AP NE BATAYA NAHI ?

        • Ismail bhai apko khud istikhara karna chahiyay. Agar Allah swt ki marzi hai tou aapki Anum se shaadi zaroor hogi insh'Allah. Lekin agar istikhara sahi nahi aata tou aapko bhi Allah swt ki marzi maanni chayay and just move on. Har cheez me koi behtari hoti hai mere bhai.

          Aap Isha ki namaz ke baad (after witr's) aik aur 2 rakat ki namaz parhain aur dua mein istikhara ki dua parhain aur Allah swt se guidance maangain ke agar Anum aapke liyay sahi hai ke nahi. Oske parents ki marzi ke bagair please shaadi na kerna.

          Ps. Why ask other people to do an istikhara for you when you have the ability and the opportunity to getting direct guidance from Allah swt? Hope everything works out well for You, Anum and both of your families insh'Allah.

      Istikhara is not a machine in which you insert your names and hey presto, you get an answer. And neither is this website here to conduct istikharas on anyone's behalf. Please read the information provided in the links above to learn what istikhara is about.

      • Salam Aleykum, there would not be so much problems in a married life if both wife and husband start to tacke care of their responsibiltys rather than wishing and dreaming how the wife or husband should be

        • Hmm, I agree. If each spouse gave deep care and attention to their 'duties' rather than their 'rights', both would be happier! Wise words old' man.

          • Asalam'u aleykum, I did read that you were open for advice, its not related to the topic directly, but the way brothers and sisters are asking regarding Istikhara.

            Sorry for my poor english. please do correct me in the light of Quran and Authentich Hadith if i make any mistake regarding deen of Allah swt and his prophet Saws.

            For people from Pakistan who realy are away from Quran and Sunnah, I humbly advice you to listen to Sheik Tauseef Ur-Rehman in youtube, his lectures are mostly in urdu, so it will InshaALLAH BENEFIT them a lot of his lectures if they are searching for knowledge.

            you can also look at his homepage: http://www.tauseef-ur-rehman.co.cc/

            Stay away from bidah:

            The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Every innovation is misguidance and going astray" Reported by Abu Daawood (no. 4607), at-Tirmidhee (no. 2676) and it is saheeh. Ibn Hajr authenticated it Takhreej Ahaadeeth Ibn ul-Haajib (1/137).

            And he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) also said: "… and every innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the Hellfire." Reported by an-Nasaa'ee (1/224) from Jaabir bin Abdullaah and it is saheeh as declared by Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah in Majmoo' ul-Fataawaa (3/58).

            “Iblees (Satan) loves Bid’ah (innovation) more than debauchery and disobedience because the harm of Bid’ah is in the essence of the religion.”
            Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

  15. mery abu cars ki sale purchase ka kam krty hain 3month pele aik car le the wo sale nai hui or us ko kisi or car se exchange kya or wo car abi tk sale nai hui or koi kam sahi nai ho raha

    ap ye bta dain ke ye gari kb sale ho ge or sale na hony ki waga kya hi ?

    plz plz

    • Brother,

      What your father should do for his business to prosper is seek some business advice regarding 'car sales'. He should also do dua to Allah(swt) to help his business prosper and also at the same time learn how to do istikhara properly. Please ask your father to read the links we have provided here on Istikhara in Urdu, and it would be good if you also read them.

    • Ibn 'Umar (A.S.) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said:

      "The keys of the Ghayb (Unseen) are five and no one but Allah the Almighty knows them: No human soul knows what it will earn tomorrow; No one knows by how much the wombs fall short (of their time) but Allah; No one know when it will rain but Allah; No human soul knows in what land it will die; No one knows when the Hour will be but Allah."

      As you can see, one of the things mentioned that no one knows except Allah, is what a man will earn tomorrow. In other words, how much money he will make, what he will buy or sell, etc.

      Anyone who claims to be able to tell you the future in such matters is a fraud and a taghoot.

      Please read the articles about istikhara. Istikhara is not a way of determining the future. No-one but Allah knows when your children will get married, or if they will marry in the family or outside. You are a Muslim, so please learn about your religion; it is basic Islamic knowledge to know that Allah alone knows the future.

    When doing the Istakhaara duaa, can a person rise from the prayer mat or must we remain sat down? I ask because I cannot memorize the prayer and would read it from my computer.

    • You cannot interrupt the salat to go to the computer. If you cannot memorize the dua, then write it on a small piece of paper and read it from there. But you should try hard to memorize it. I'm sure you can if you work on it bit by bit.

    • SalamuAleykum Sister.

      By doing Istikhara, Allah swt will either sort things out for you if them are good for you, your deen in this dunya and akhira otherwise he Allah swt will make it difficult to approach what you desire(if that is the case then you should not approach it).

      Istikharah (seeking Allah’s Counsel)

      Jabir bin Abdullah (RA) said: The Prophet (SAW) used to teach us to seek Allah's Counsel in all matters, as he used to teach us a Surah from the Qur'an. He would say: When anyone of you has an important matter to decide, let him pray two Rak'ahs other than the obligatory prayer, and then say:

      "اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمَكَ، وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ، وَتَعْلَمُ، وَلَا أَعْلَمُ، وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ- خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي- عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ- فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ، وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي- عَاجِلِهِ وَآجِلِهِ- فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِيَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ أَرْضِنِي بِهِ".

      74. Allaahumma 'innee 'astakheeruka bi'ilmika, wa 'astaqdiruka biqudratika, wa 'as'aluka min fadhtikal-'Adheemi, fa'innaka taqdiru wa laa 'aqdiru, wa ta'lamu, wa laa 'a'lamu, wa 'Anta 'Allaamul-Ghuyoobi, Allaahumma 'in kunta ta'lamu 'anna haathal-'amra-[then mention the thing to be decided] Khayrun lee fee deenee wa ma'aashee wa 'aaqibati 'amree - [or say] 'Aajilihi wa 'aajilihi - Faqdurhu lee wa yassirhu lee thumma baarik lee feehi, wa 'in kunta ta'lamu 'anna haathal-'amra sharrun lee fee deenee wa ma'aashee wa 'aaqibati 'amree - [or say] 'Aajilihi wa 'aajilihi - Fasrifhu 'annee wasrifnee 'anhu waqdur liyal-khayra haythu kaana thumma 'ardhinee bihi.

      O Allah, I seek the counsel of Your Knowledge, and I seek the help of Your Omnipotence, and I beseech You for Your Magnificent Grace. Surely, You are Capable and I am not. You know and I know not, and You are the Knower of the unseen. O Allah, if You know that this matter [then mention the thing to be decided] is good for me in my religion and in my life and for my welfare in the life to come, - [or say: in this life and the afterlife] - then ordain it for me and make it easy for me, then bless me in it. And if You know that this matter is bad for me in my religion and in my life and for my welfare in the life to come, - [or say: in this life and the afterlife] - then distance it from me, and distance me from it, and ordain for me what is good wherever it may be, and help me to be content with it.

      Whoever seeks the counsel of the Creator will not regret it and whoever seeks the advice of the believers will feel confident about his decisions . Allah said in the Qur'an :

      "And consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a decision , put your trust in Allah."

      Reference: Al-Bukhari 7/162. and Aal-'Imran 3:159.

    You must do istikhara yourself as the decision and situation is yours. Do you research, if you are satisfied with what you find, consult with your family and do istikhara.

    • Wa Alaikum as Salam,

      Brother, the purpose of Istikhaarah is not to find out what is wrong or if anyone has performed magic as some misguided individuals propogate in the subcontinent. Istikhaarah is a prayer performed to seek Allah's Guidance and His Help in making a decision.

      And this prayer can not be performed by anyone. It has to be performed by one who is taking the decision.

      Your case does not require Istikhaarah per se. It requires patience, trust in Allah and belief in the Qadr. The rizq you have to get, you will get it even if you run from it. The One Who provided you when you were in your mother's womb can provide you what you have to be provided when the time for it comes.

      Instead of corrupting your Aqeedah by accumulating such misguided beliefs and practices, I advise you to learn the Tawheed, Aqeedah of the Aimmah among Salaf as Saliheen and increase your knowledge and your Imaan with that.

    Someone stole my 500 dirhams well i want to know who can it be someone said me to do istikhara it will help so please help..

    • Humaira, Istikhara will not tell you who stole your money. Salat-al-Istikhara is used when you are trying to decide between different courses of action. It is a prayer asking Allah to guide you to the best decision.

      I apologise if I have misunderstood, as my Urdu could be considered poor at best. If I have understood you correctly, I would suggest that you read the information provided on this website in order to increase your understanding of istikhara. When we pray istikhara, we are asking Allah to guide us to the path that is best for us, and trusting in His will; this guidance doesn't need to come as a dream or an omen.

  48. Hi
    My son's second marriage has taken place an year ago. I just want to know if this marriage will work out and both of them live together this time. Is this girl good enough for her.

    • Hi
      My son's second marriage has happened again. I just wanted to. Know I'f this will work out and he ll b happy with this girl. Please let me know. Thanks.

    • Assalaamualaikam

      We cannot tell you the answer to this - only Allah knows what will be in the future. Some people may claim to be able to tell you through practices such as looking at people's names, but these are shirk practices, which have no place in Islam, and which won't help you anyway.

      If you wish your son to have a happy marriage, pray that Allah guides them to what is best for them, and try to form a positive relationship with his wife - instead of asking if she is good enough for him, get to know her as a person in her own right, and help her feel part of your family.
