A famous du’a (supplication) of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is:
اللَّهُمَّ آتِ نَفْسِي تَقْوَاهَا وَزَكِّهَا أَنْتَ خَيْرُ مَنْ زَكَّاهَا أَنْتَ وَلِيُّهَا وَ مَوْلَاهَا
‘Oh Allah! Grant my soul its taqwa and purify it, for you are the best who can purify it, for you are the Master of my soul and you are the Keeper o f my soul’
This is a beautiful du’a and we should repeat it often.
[Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq mentioned this du’a in a talk entitled ‘Love in Islam’ which was delivered on 20th March 2005 in South Africa].

“AMEEN”, such a short dua yet so meaningful!
SubhanAllah I feel that this du’aa encompasses much of what we as Muslims need to inshaAllah gain Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala’s Pleasure. Taqwa, purification of the soul and the understanding that we mere mortals are not in control of anything nor do we own anything. Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala is the Master and Keeper and to Him Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala shall our souls be returned.
