Episode 12: Don’t Make an Example Out of Me | Prayers of the Pious

Sh. Omar Suleiman relates a previous du’a to the prayer of another great man. Where ibn al-Jawzi worried his students would not find him in paradise, al-Mutarraf ibn Abdullah worried he would be made into a bad example for others.

اللَّهُمَّ لا تَجْعَلْنِيْ عِبْرَةً لِغَيْرِيْ ، وَلا تَجْعَلْ أَحَداً أَسْعَدَ بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِيْ مِنِّيْ

“O Allah, do not make a lesson out of me for others, and do not let there be anyone who benefits more than me from what You’ve taught me.”
