Dua for Purifying the Soul

Translation: Allahumma ati qulubana taqwaha, wa zakkiha anta khairu man zakkaha, anta waliyyuha wa mawlaha: O Allah, give my soul its taqwa (mindfulness and fear of You), and purify it, for You are the best One capable of purifying it, You are its only true guardian and helper.




Lest the eye of a stranger should fall upon it, do not show off your good deed to men;
If your desire from faith is security, seek your security in seclusion.
What is the place of seclusion? The house of the heart; become habituated to dwell in the heart; […]
Be silent, and practice the art of silence; let go all artful bragging;
For the heart is the place of faith, there in the heart hold fast to faithfulness."

" —Jalal ad-Deen Rumi (Molavi)

Beginning of Surat Taha on 14th Century Yemeni Mushaf


1. Ta, Ha.

2. We did not reveal the Quran to you to make you suffer.

3. But only as a reminder for him who fears.

4. A revelation from He who created the earth and the high heavens.

5. The Most Merciful; on the Throne He settled.

6. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, and everything beneath the soil.

7. If you speak aloud—He knows the secret, and the most hidden.

8. God, there is no god but He, His are the Most Beautiful Names.

9. Has the story of Moses reached you?

10. When he saw a fire, he said to his family, "Stay; I have noticed a fire; Perhaps I can bring you a torch therefrom, or find some guidance by the fire."

11. Then, when he reached it, he was called, "O Moses.

12. I—I am your Lord. Take off your shoes. You are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.

13. I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed.

14. I—I am God. There is no God but I. So serve Me, and practice the prayer for My remembrance.

15. The Hour is coming—but I keep it almost hidden—so that each soul will be paid for what it endeavors.

16. And do not let him who denies it and follows his desire turn you away from it, lest you fall.

17. And what is that in your right-hand, O Moses?"

18. He said, "This is my staff. I lean on it, and herd my sheep with it, and I have other uses for it."

19. He said, "Throw it, O Moses."

20. So he threw it—thereupon it became a moving serpent.

21. He said, "Take hold of it, and do not fear. We will restore it to its original condition.

22. And press your hand to your side; it will come out [white, without a blemish—another sign.]
