10) Umm Salam: ” O Messenger of Allah, do hearts turn?”. “Yes. There is no creation of Allah from the sons of Adam…except that his heart is between the two fingers of the fingers of Allah, mighty and majestic. If Allah wills, mighty and majestic, he straightens it and if He wills he takes them off the mark.”..”O Messenger of Allah, will you not teach me a supplication that I can supplicate with for myself?” “Of course. Say “O Allah, Lord of the prophet Muhammed, forgive me my sin and remove the rage of my heart, and protect me from the tribulations that lead astray as long as you keep me alive”

13) Source of dua’s is unknown, may Allah bless the author thereof
Bism Allah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
O Lord, please help me to say the truth in front of those who have authority. And please help me not to say that which is false in order to gain advantage. And please help me to see the other side of reality. And please protect me from bearing false witness due to difference of opinion. O Lord if you give me money, do not take my money. If you give me health please don’t take my sanity. If you give me success don’t take my humility. If you give me humility don’t take my dignity. O Lord, please teach me to love others as I love myself. And teach me to question myself as I question others. And please teach me how to forgive. Because the ability to forgive is the greatest of qualities. And because revenge is a major sign of weakness and regression. Please O Lord, protect me from arrogance upon my success. And protect me from despair upon my failure. O Lord, please remind me that failure preceeds success. O Lord if you do not give me success, please leave me determination to overcome failure. O Lord if you do not give me health, leave me my faith. O Lord, if I hurt others please give me the ability to apologize and if others hurt me, give me the ability to forgive. O Lord, if I forget Thee, don’t forget me as You are the Forgiving (al-Ghafur), the Clement (al-Halim), the Great (al-Kabir), Dominant and Able to do all things (al-Qadir).

15) Dua Before Sleeping
Saheh Bukhari Narrated Al-Bara bin `Azib: Allah’s Apostle said to me, “When you want to go to bed, perform ablution as you do for prayer, then lie down on your right side and say:
اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ، وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ، وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ، رَهْبَةً وَرَغْبَةً إِلَيْكَ، لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ، آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ، وَبِنَبِيِّكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ
‘Allahumma aslamtu wajhi ilaika, wa fauwadtu `Amri ilaika wa aljatu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, lamalja’a wa la manna mink a ill a ilaika. Amantu bikitabi kalladhi anzalta wa bi nabiyyikal-ladhi arsalta’.
O Allah, I submit myself to you, entrust my affairs to you, turn my face to you, and lay myself down depending upon you, hoping in you and fearing you. There is no refuge, and no escape, except to you. I believe in your book (the Quran) that you revealed, and the Prophet (PBUH) whom you sent.
If you should die then (after reciting this) you will die on the religion of Islam (i.e., as a Muslim); so let these words be the last you say (before going to bed)” While I was memorizing it, I said, “Wa birasiulikal-ladhi arsalta).’ The Prophet said, “No, but say: Wa binabiyyi-kalladhi arsalta
