Can I make Istikhaarah for 2 matters?
For example, if I want to buy a house
and invest in business. So, have I to
make 2 Istikhaarah or 1 is sufficient I
ask Allah for both the matters.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Performing Istikhaarah prayer is Sunnah
whenever a person intends to undertake
a lawful matter. The narration that
proves it is reported by Al-Bukhari
and others. We did not find any saying
of scholars that prohibit performing
one Istikhaarah for many matters.
Imaam An-Nawawi said in the
explanation of the book of Imaam
Muslim : 'The narration indicates
desirability of performing Istikhaarah
prayer for the one who wants to
undertake something whether its
advantage is apparent or not.'
Al 'Ayni said, 'He has to specify
his need, for instance, he has to say,
'if You know that this matter of
traveling, or marrying or the like.' Al
Mubaarakpoori said, 'He
performs this prayer whenever he
intends to do something like
marriage, travel, or something else,
or refrain from doing something.'
Therefore, mentioning the matter you
intend is better. For example you may
say, 'O Allah! If You know that
purchasing the house is better for
me…..' and then continue reading the
remaining supplications as reported in
the narration. Similarly the other needs
should be mentioned.
However, it is preferable to perform a
separate Istikhaarah for every need
since doing so is easy and leads to
repeat the prayer and supplication
frequently which brings good and
blessings, as it is known.
Finally, if one performs one Istikhaarah
for many matters we do not know any
evidence that prohibits that practice.

Allah Knows best.
