Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him: The Prophet (PBUH) used to teach us the way of doing Istikhara (Istikhara means to ask Allah to guide one to the right sort of action concerning any deed), in all matters as he taught us the Suras of the Qur'an. He (Peace Be upon Him) said, "If anyone of you thinks of doing any job he should offer a two rak`at prayer other than the compulsory ones and say (after the prayer): O Allah! I ask guidance from Your knowledge, And Power from Your Might and I ask for Your great blessings. You are capable and I am not. You know and I do not and You know the unseen. O Allah! If You know that this job is good for my religion and my subsistence and in my Hereafter--(or said: If it is better for my present and later needs)--Then You ordain it for me and make it easy for me to get, And then bless me in it, and if You know that this job is harmful to me In my religion and subsistence and in the Hereafter--(or said: If it is worse for my present and later needs)--Then keep it away from me and let me be away from it. And ordain for me whatever is good for me, And make me satisfied with it. The Prophet (ﷺ) added that then the person should name (mention) his need.
