The Recitation of the Phrase: `I seek the best from Allah' and the number of times to recite’

    قَالَ الإِمَامُ الصَّادِقُ عَليهِ السَلامْ:

    تَقُولُهَا فِي الأَمْرِ الْعَظِيمِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ و مَرَّةٍ وَ فِي الأَمْرِ ((أسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ)) الدُّون عَشْرَ مَرَّات.

al‑Imam al‑Sadiq (as), said: "In the case of an important action, recite:

    أَسْتَخِيرُكَ اللهَ

`I seek the best from Allah' one hundred and one times, and for a lesser important action, recite it ten times. " 1
