Dua of Hazrat Ali (R.A)

O Allah!

I take refuge with you

from appearing to the public

to be better than I am

while my inner mind

is repulsive to You

for what it conceals,

preventing the people

from lamenting over me

for all that You know of me,

for I would be showing the people

a fine exterior

while informing You

of the evil of my actions

drawing near to mortals

while distancing myself

from Your favour.
