What do different colours mean in istakhara? I mean what these colours suggest, red, black, white, green, sky-blue off white.
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
Istikharah is to seek guidance from Allah when one is faced with a problem.
It is related by Jabir bin Abdullah that the Prophet of Allah used to teach us the way of doing Istikharah, in all matters as he taught us the Surahs of the Quran... (Sahih Al-Bukhari, 2.263)
When making Istikharah a person should perform two Rakats Nafl Salat. Then with all sincerity recite the following Du'a.
