Episode 11: Don’t Punish a Tongue of Praise | Prayers of the Pious

A du’a from Imam ibn al-Jawzi encourages us to do good and to share knowledge, then invoke Allah with our good deeds in prayer.

إِلَهِيْ لَا تُعَذِّبْ لِسَاناً يُخْبِرُ عَنْكَ، وَلا عَيْناً تَنْظُرُ إِلَى عُلُوْمٍ تَدُلُّ عَلَيْكَ ، وَلا يَداً تَكْتُبُ حَدِيْثَ رَسُوْلِكَ؛ فَبِعِزَّتِكَ لا تُدْخِلَنِي النَّارَ

“My God, do not punish a tongue that informs about You, nor an eye that looks upon (Islamic) sciences which point to You, nor a hand that writes the traditions of Your Messenger. So by Your honor, do not admit me into the Fire.”
