Istījārī prayer or al-ṣalāt al-istījārīyya (Arabic: الصَّلاة الإستیجاریة) is a prayer said by a muslim on behalf of another muslim in exchange for an amount of money. Istijari prayers can be obligatory, such as the qada' of daily prayers of the deceased, and can be mustahab, such as the ziyara prayer. The person who undertakes an istijari prayer is called "ajir" (hired). The majority of Shiite jurists maintain that istijari prayers are only permissible on behalf of deceased persons.
