7 Beautiful Supplications from Hadith
The Prophet took the hand of Hadrat Muadh ibn Jabal (R.A) and said to him, “O Mu’adh, I love you!” Hadrat Mu’adh (R.A) responded, “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, O Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him); I love you too.” Then the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said, “I advise you, O Mu’adh, say at the end of every prayer, ‘Allahumma inni ala Zikrika wa Shukrika wa husni ibadatika’ (O Allah, aid me in Your Remembrance, Your thanks, and in perfecting Your worship).”

Shahr bin Hawshab (RA) said:
“I said to Umm Salamah: ‘O Mother of the Believers! What was the supplication that the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said most frequently when he was with you?” She said: ‘The supplication he said most frequently was: “O Changer of the hearts, make my heart firm upon Your religion (Yā Muqallibal-qulūb, thabbit qalbī `alā dīnik).’” She said: ‘So I said: “O Messenger of Allah, why do you supplicate so frequently: ‘O Changer of the hearts, make my heart firm upon Your religion.’ He said: ‘O Umm Salamah! Verily, there is no human being except that his heart is between Two Fingers of the Fingers of Allah, so whomsoever He wills He makes steadfast, and whomever He wills He causes to deviate.’” Grade : Hasan (Darussalam)
