Istikhara after Salat al‑Fajr

    قَالَ الإِمَامُ الصَّادِقُ عَليهِ السَّلامْ:

    إِذَا صَلِّيْتَ صَلاَةَ الْفَجْرِ فَقُلْ بَعْدَ أَنْ تَرْفَعَ يَدَيكَ حِذَاءَ وَجْهِكَ: ((أَللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ فَصَلِّ عَلىَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَخِرْ لِي فِي جَمِيعِ مَا أَمَرْتُ بِهِ مِنِ أُمورِي خِيَارَ بَرَكَةٍ وَعَافِيَةٍ.)) ثُمَّ تَقُولُ فِي الْسَجْدَةِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ : ((أَسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُ اللهَ فِي عَافِيَةٍ بِقُدْرَتِهِ.)) ثُمَّ أَتَتْ حَاجَتُكَ فَإِنَّهَا خَيْرٌ لَكَ فِي كُلِّ حَالٍ.

Imam Jafar al‑Sadiq (as) said: "When you have finished Salat al‑Fajr, then lift up your hands such that they are in front of your face and say the following:

    أَللهُمَّ إِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ فَصَلِّ عَلىَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَخِرْ لِي فِي جَمِيعِ مَا أَمَرْتُ بِهِ مِنِ أُمورِي خِيَارَ بَرَكَةٍ وَعَافِيَةٍ.

O' Allah, verily You know (better) and we do not know and you are the Knower of the Unseen, so send blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and give me the best in all that I resolve to do of that which will be a blessing and good (for me).

Then go into sajdah and say the following line one hundred times:

    أَسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُ اللهَ فِي عَافِيَةٍ بِقُدْرَتِهِ.

I ask the best from Allah by Your Mercy, and I seek the power and strength to perform this good work from Allah. "

Then, ask for your (legitimate) desires since in this is what is good for you in whatever happens."
