Episode 19: Make Me Better Than What They Think


This is the 19th episode of the Prayers of the Pious Ramadan series by Sh. Omar Suleiman.  This episode is one that especially applies to those in the public eye. It discusses the dangers of destructive praise and the prayer Abu Bakr made to avoid it.

[ Day 19 Du'a ]

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِى خَيْرًا مِمَّا يَظُنُّونَ وَاغْفِرْ لِى مَا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ وَلَا تُؤَاخِذْنِى بِمَا يَقُولُون

“O Allah, make me better than what they think of me, and forgive me for what they do not know about me, and do not take me to account for what they say about me.”
