Istikhara by Tasbih Beads by Imam al‑Zamana

    عَنِ الْقَائِمِ صَلَوَانُ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ فِي الإِسْتِخَارَةِ بِالسَّبْحَةِ أَنهُ يَأْخُذُهَا وَيُصَلَّي عَلىَ النَّبِيِّ وآلِهِ صَلَوَاتُ الله عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ ثَلاَثَ مَرَّاتٍ وَيَقْبضُ عَلىَ السَّبْحَةِ وَيَعُدُّ اشْنَيْنِ اشْنَيْنِ فَإِنْ بَقِيَتْ وَاحِدَةً فَهُوَ إفْعَلْ فَإنْ بَقِيَتْ إثْنَتَان فَهُوَ لاَ تَفْعَل.

It has been narrated from al‑Qa'im regarding the Istikhara by the tasbih that: "The tasbih should be taken (in the hand), and blessings should be sent on Muhammad and his family s three times, and then pick a sport on the beads and count them two by two. If at the end only one bead remains, then you should perform that action; and if two beads remain, then you should not perform it. "17
