Question : #552 Category: Miscellaneous
Subject: Istikhara method
Question: Salaam
I want to make sure that I'm doing my Istikhara properly. I am asking for guidance on whether a certain task that I want to complete is possible/accepted by Allah, and if it is, how I can acheive it. As I'm just needing guidance on something I really want to acheive.
So After Isha prayer, I do fresh Wudhu and read two raqaat namaaz, with Surah Kafirun in the first and Surah Ikhlaas in the second. Then I do Dua, in which i recite Salawaat, Hamd, the Dua e Istikhaara and then ask for guidance. Then I go to sleep on my right side facing Qiblah. Is this all correct?
Is there anything more I should do? Something I should recite whilst falling asleep? I have only done it once yet, but I just want to make sure that it was correct before I try again. Also, I admit that I have a bad temper and sometimes I speak rudely to my parents, will this affect my Istikhara? Should I do tauba for a certain period of time before trying Istikhara again to make sure it works?
Thanks
Answer: Alaykum Salaam.

Given your situation, I feel a short response may not serve justice so i refer you to a PDF book by Muhammad Baqir Haideri which should answer your questions.
