O Allah! Controller of the hearts

Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (radhiyAllaahu anhuma) reported: The Messenger of Allah (saas) supplicated:
"Allahumma musarrifal-qulubi, sarrif qulubana `ala ta`atika

(O Allah! Controller of the hearts, direct our hearts to Your obedience).''


Commentary: This is a very important prayer because through it one seeks steadfastness in virtue. Everybody's heart is always open to troubles, turmoil and ordeals and he is drifting from one situation to the other. If he is not supported by Allah, he can deviate from the Right Path at any moment. For this reason, he has been required to pray to Allah to save his heart from turning towards evils and keep it towards Allah, because it is He Alone Who is Capable of controlling hearts.
