Prayer for the Refinement of the Heart: Imam al-Haddad

Al-Hamdulillah, wa Sallallah wa Sallama `Ala Sayyidina Rasulillah, wa Alihi wa Sahbihi wa Man Walah, Wa Ba`du:

Shaykh `Abdul-Karim Yahya, the student of Sayyidina al-Habib `Umar Bin Hafiz al-`Alawi al-Husayni, transmitted to us this Dua of Imam al-Haddad Radhiyallah `Anh for the refinement of the heart. When one makes this Dua, we request that one pray for us and all the Muslims.

O Allah! aid, guide and grant me (tawfiq) success to refine the qualities of my soul and clarify its density; through spiritual exertion that overcomes and effaces egoistic (nafsi) frivolities and subdues desirous motives; which is adorned by constant presence with Allah, Mighty and Majestic and the quality of good manners on the carpet of lowliness, brokenness, poverty and absolute need; thus realizing slavehood and fulfilling the rights of Lordship. Indeed you have power over all things.
