English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Al Aas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that he heard Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) as saying: Verily, the hearts of all the sons of Adam are between the two fingers out of the fingers of the Compassionate Lord as one heart. He turns that to any (direction) He likes. Then Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said : "0 Allah, the Turner of the hearts, turn our hearts to Thine obedience".
[Muslim Book 33, Chapter 03, Hadith # 6418].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 47. “And those whom Allah gave the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) aforetime] believe therein as also do some of these (who are present with you now like ‘Abdullah bin Salam)” Obedience ( and Guidance) here means guidance at every turn of life and steadfastness on the path of truth. Fear of Allah is the greatest means of piety and strongest defense against sins.
