It is reported by Ahmad from Anas that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,“Do not become amazed at anyone until you see how his life ends, for a person may work all of his life or a portion of his life in righteous deeds that were he to die upon it he’d enter Paradise, but he diverts and does evil deeds. And a slave may spend a portion of his life doing evil that were he to die upon it he’d enter Hellfire, but he diverts and does righteous deeds. And if Allah wishes good for a slave, he utilises him before his death.” They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! How does He utilise him?’ He said, “He grants him tawfiq to perform righteous deeds, then he takes his life therein.”

یا مُصرِّفَ القلوبِ صَرِّف قلوبنا على طاعتِك

“O Turner of the hearts, direct our hearts to Your obedience.”

یا مقلب القلوب ثبت قلوبنا علیٰ دینک

O Turner of the hearts, make our heart firm upon Your Religion.”

رَبَّنَا لاَ تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

“Our Lord! let not Our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us Mercy from you. Truly, You are the Bestower.”
