Istikhara in the Final Sajdah of Salat al‑Lail

    قَالَ الإِمَامُ الصَّادِقُ عَليهِ السَّلامْ:

    أَسْتَخِرِاللهَ فِي أَخِرِ رَكْعَةٍ مِنْ صَلاَةِ اللَّيْلِ وَأَنْتَ سَاجِدٌ مِائَةً مَرَّةِ وَ مَرَّةٍ تَقُولُ ((أَسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ بِرَحْمَتِهِ)).

al‑Imam al‑Sadiq (as) said: "In your final rakat of Salat al‑Lail, while you are in sajdah, ask Allah for the best by reciting the following one hundred and one times:

    أَسْتَخِيرُ اللهَ بِرَحْمَتِهِ

`I seek the best from Allah by His mercy. "3
