The First Istikharah (Requesting For What Is Best) Using chaplets

Sayyid Ali bn Taaus said: I have found Istikharah among the supplication of the Prophet (peace be on him and his holy progeny) and the Imams (peace be on them) said that there is a divine power behind it. I have also found that Istikharah is among the mysteries of Allah. He discloses it to the Prophet (peace be on him and his progeny) when He ascends him to the Heaven.

I have also found the latest form of Istikharah supplication from our master Al-Mahdi peace be on him and his pure fathers. This is a complete prove among the learned ones. (Fathul Abwaab: 192.)

The First Istikharah (Requesting for What is Best) Using Chaplets

I saw in some ancient book this Istikharah which was ascribe to our master, the leader of the time, peace be on him:

In the first place you recite Surah Al-Fatihah till you reach His saying

«اِهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ المُسْتَقِيْمَ»

{guide us to the right path} after reading this verse, you send blessing to the Prophet and his pure progeny for (3) three times, and recite the following (3) three times

«يَا مَنْ يَعْلَمُ اِهْدِ مَنْ لَايَعْلَمُ»

O’ He who knows, guide he who knows not then hold any part of your chaplet and started counting it till the end of the chaplet, if the last one is in odd number, you can go ahead with the issue but if it is even number you desist from the issue.

If you still desired to know more about the issue you observe second Istikharah with the intention of abandoning the issue, if the first Istikharah was go ahead and the second Istikharah is abstinence then going ahead is good, but if the first Istikharah was abstinence and the second one is going ahead, then doing such thing or leaving it has no any difference.

Is also applies that if the first Istikharah was abstinence and the second Istikharah is also abstinence, then it is incumbent to completely abstain from the issue.

Second Istikharah With Champlet

Second Istikharah with Champlet

The author of Jawahir said: there is another common Istikharah among the people of our time. Perhaps it was attributed to our master Al-Qa’im may our souls be sacrifice for him, as follows:

To grasp the chaplet after reciting the supplication and start dropping it eight one after the other, at the end if the chaplet remain one, the issue is good, if it remain two, it is one abstinence from the issue, if it remains three, you have the option whether to do it or to leave it, if it remain four, it is abstinence twice from the issue, if it remains five, there shall be difficulty on the process, if it remains six, it is good to go ahead and it also necessitate quick action, if it remains seven, it is like if it remains five and if it remains eight, it is abstinence from the issue four times
