wa alaikum el salaam(and upon you is the salaam)!
you should pray salaht al-Istikhara= asking Allah to choose/select for us the good, and if it is in doing or in undoing something (for a specific matter). it is to pray two rakaa and after finishing you read the following du'aa;
"Allahumma enni astakhi-rouka b3elmika, wa astakde-rouka b-kodratika, wa assalouka min fadlika el 3azim. Fa-innaka takderou wala akderou, wa ta3lamou wala a3lamou, wa anta 3allaam-ul ghoyoub. Allahumma en konta ta3lam haza al-amr (mention the matter) khayron li fi deeni wa ma3ashi wa 3akebatou amri, fakderhou li wa yasserhou li, suma barik li fih. Wa en konta ta3lam an haza al-amr (mention the matter) sharron li fi deeni wa ma3ashi wa 3akebatou amri, fassref-hou 3anni wassref-ni 3anhou, wa akder li al khayrou haysou kan, suma erdeni bih."
(translation) "O Allah, I am asking you the good choice/selection by Your knowledge, and I am asking Your ability by Your Ability(power), and I ask you from Your great bounty(favors). Indeed, You can and I can not, and You know and I do not know, and You are the Knower of the Unseen.
O Allah if You know that this matter(and mention the matter) is good for me in my religion, my life and the consequence/circumstances of my matter, then decree it for me and ease it for me and then bless to me in it.
And if You know that this matter (and mention the matter) is bad for me in my religion, my life and the consequence/circumstances of my matter, then depart(avoid) it from me and depart(avoid) me from it, and decree for me the good wherever it was, and then please(agree) me with it."
May Allah decree for you the good wherever it was and pleases you with it.. and salaam alaikum!
