Mufti Menk – What is Istikharah?

A beautiful lecture by Mufti Menk explaining the term Istikharah comprehensively, the dua and the meaning of Istikharah, its usage and encourages us to read the dua often not just in times of guidance on a particular matter rather to be guided by Allah in all the times. This dua is reported in a Hadith narrated upon the authority of Jabir RA and he says that Prophet SAW would teach them this dua as he SAW would teach any surah. May Allah help us in memorizing this beautiful dua and guide us at all times.
