[ Day 23 Du’a ]

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّيْ نَصَحْتُ لِخَلْقِكَ ظَاهِراً وَغَشَشْتُ نَفْسِيْ بَاطِناً ، فَهَبْ لِيْ غِشِّيْ نَفْسِيْ لِنُصْحِيْ لِخَلْقِكَ

“O Allah, I was sincere to Your creation in public but cheated myself in private. Please excuse my disgrace because of my sincerity to Your creation.”

He actually died after he shared this there. So he cried, and he passed away after he shared this. In this wish with the last panel, it's either. And this contains a deep meaning that's not found in any of the other supplications in the series, that many times you'll find an empath or you'll find someone that that has sincerity to the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But in the process of being sincere to the creation of Allah subhana wa, tada, they lose sincerity with a loss of Hannah Montana. And they lose that those private moments of devotion.

But this is a beautiful way to call upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that Allah forgive us for the things that we do in private that harm ourselves because of the good that we do to his creation and that is certainly beloved to Allah subhana wa tada but may Allah subhana wa Taala also rectify our private and our public lives in a way that is most pleasing to Him a llama I mean, does that low height
