I am interested in attaining the Arabic text and English translation of a Hadith which mentions a du’a of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). It begins with “O Turner of hearts” and mentions keeping the heart firm in obedience. I would also like to know which Hadith collections this du’a can be found in.



Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) used to recite the following supplication in abundance:

يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِينِكَ

‘Ya Muqallibal qulub, thabbit qalbi ‘ala dinik.’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2140)


Translation: O Turner of hearts, keep my heart steadfast on your Din.

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has classified this Hadith as hasan (sound).


And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
