How Should One Pray Ṣalāt al-Istikhārah?

Shaykh Mūsá Richardson

A clarification on the circumstances under which Ṣalāt al-Istikhārah should be prayed and how to pray it.

The following question concerns how and when one should pray Ṣalāt al-Istikhārah:

[Q]: With regards to Ṣalāt al-Istikhārah, does one pray it when he is confused about two matters in which he wishes to be guided to the one that is better for him, or does he pray it when he has made up his mind about a matter and wishes to be guided away from it if it is bad for him, or to it if the matter is good for him and therefore he begins attempting to achieve this thing.
