Istikhara
for Prohibited Actions?

If someone makes istikhara (prayer for Divine guidance) in asking for something that is prohibited, is it possible for Allah to show a good sign?

A. Since it is not for something permitted, and you know that, then there is no need or benefit to making the istakhara - it will not be a good act; Istikhara must be for something good.
