Decisions define who we are. The paths we choose mark out our lives-who we marry, how we make a living, even our very names-all of these can be traced back to a decision that someone somewhere has made. This book is an essential guide for those who want to find goodness along the paths they have chosen in life. In this short work, the author presents a masterful treatment of the subject of the Prophetic sunnah of Istikharah, the supplication for those faced with a decision.
