The basis of istikhara done by a person is to strive to make the right decision for them. It is an authentic and extremely emphasized practice narrated by our beloved Prophet Muhammad SallalLaahuAlaihiWasallam. Istikhara is basically done to seek what is good from Allah Talah. But, the question is how to do istikhara? The results of istikhara are only visible when you perform it with complete accuracy. It is very important to know the right procedure of the istikhara. If you are not sure whether you can do it correctly or not, then you can ask someone else to do it.
