What to say when praised

 What to say when praised

Shaikh Salim at-Taweel (hafidhahullaah) said,
quote:
"When people praise you, people are trully praising Allaah's hijab (screen) which He screened your sins with. As-Sateer (The Concealer) is from Allaah's Names."

What to say when praised

Allaahumma laa tu'aakhithnee bimaa yaqooloona, waghfir lee maa laa ya'lamoona [waj'alnee khayram-mimmaa yadhunnoon].

Translation: O Allaah , do not call me to account for what they say, and forgive me for what they have no knowledge of [and make me better than they imagine].

Reference: Al-Bukhari, Al-'Adabul-Mufrad no. 761. See Al-Albani, Sahih Al-'Adabul-Mufrad (no. 585). The portion between brackets if from Al-Bayhaqi, Shu'ab Al-Iman 4/228, and comes another account.

Note: this du'aa has been reported as the statement of:

- Aboo Bakr as-Siddeeq (Usd al-Ghaabah in Aboo Bakr's biography)
- Ibn 'Umar, the freed slave of 'Afrah (Az-Zuhd of Ibn Mubaarak, p.14)
- "One of the Companions," unnamed (Az-Zuhd of Ahmad, p.205)
- Yazeed ibn Maysarah (Hilyat al-Awliyaa, 5/240)
- Al-Awzaa'ee (Shu'ab al-Eemaan #4875)
- "Some of the Salaf," unnamed (Shu'ab al-Eemaan #4876)

None of them attributed it to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), so it seems to be that the best-case scenario is that it is from Aboo Bakr and then some of the taabi'oon and those after them.
