The Prince of Believers

The Prince of Believers,
Ali ibn Abi Talib (may the prayers and peace of God be upon him), when describing those who fear God, said:[W]hen anyone of them is spoken of highly, he says: “I know myself better than others, and my Lord knows me better than I know myself. O God, do not deal with me according to what they say. Make me better than what they think of me, and forgive me for that which they do not know.”
