dua for consultation [istigharah]

This dua is very important when we need to take any important decision in our life. Many people think that this dua must be read only when someone has a marriage proposition. Alhamdullillah, this is not the case and the prophet [peace be upon him] advises us to always seek advice to God when we undertake any work or action, for example, the subjects we are going to choose at school or at university; to buy a house; to change job; when we are often sick and the doctor is not sure about our illness….

O Allah, I ask You to show me what is best, through Your knowledge, and I ask You to empower me, through Your power, and I beg You to grant me Your tremendous favour, for You have power, while I am without power, and You have knowledge, while I am without knowledge, and You are the One who knows all things invisible.

O Allah, if You know that this undertaking is in the best interests of my religion, my life in this world, and my life in the Hereafter, and can yield successful results in both the short term and the long term, then make it possible for me and make it easy for me, and then bless me in it.

If not, then turn it away from me, and make it easy for me to do well, wherever I may happen to be, and make me content with Your verdict, O Most Merciful of the merciful.'”
