Muslim scholars describe “Istikhara” as to search for goodness and capacity from Allah (Glorious is He). It suggests that when one anticipates a key errand, they do Istikhara before starting and master minding that ask. At whatever point a Muslim is settling on a decision, he or she should search for Allah’s course and knowledge. Allah alone acknowledges what is best for us, and there may be extraordinary in what we see
as dreadful, and horrible in what we see as great.
