Events of life sometimes make it hard to make fair decisions. What is the Muslim’s solution in making decisions of life’s events?
Istikharah (Prayer of decision-making) is an indispensable tool that every Muslim has to navigate their life. Life is made of decisions. For many people, we only notice the decisions when they have huge, long-term consequences. But decisions of all kinds are there, filling up every moment and affecting our life. In making a decision, big or small, we can only estimate its probable result. Based on our limited knowledge, we cannot predict the future nor be sure what the effects of our choices will be. Let us make use of the Sunnah of Istikharah (prayer of decision making).
