Salaf- A Glimpse of How They Critically Examined Themselves – [A supplication of Muttarrif Bin Abdillaah]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Sufyaan Ibnu Uyaynah [rahimahullaah] said that Muttarrif Bin Abdillaah [rahimahullaah] used to supplicate:
O Allaah! I seek your forgiveness concerning that which I return to after repenting from it; and I seek your forgiveness concerning that which I make binding upon myself to perform for you, but fail to do so; and I seek your forgiveness concerning that which I claim to perform seeking your face, but then what I do is mixed with something else in my heart.
