doa when being praised..... sharing

Bismillah
Assalamu alaykum

I have just finished an online class with Shaykh A Aziz on Book of asssistance chapter 25
If I have been wrong to praise or have beause of my praise caused ujub and kibr (pride and ostentitiousness), pls forgive me

The doa to read when being praised as read by Sahabat Kabir Abu Bakar AsSiddiq Radhi Allahu Anhu(insya Allah getting the arabic version soon )

The translation:
Oh Allah , You are more knowledgable about me than myself and I am more knowledgable about myself than them. Oh Allah do not call me into account of what they say and forgive me for what they do not know and make me better than what they think


There is a hadith stating that Jibrail alaihi salam taught Rasulullah Salllahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam a doa that has never been taught before. Insya Allah will update once we get them.
When being priased, dislike in your heart... that is adab to avoid ujub and kibr

Praise is only praiseworthy when
1. Sincere by the one praising and the one receiving the praise
2. Intention of the praise
3. May result into better action

Has to be with adab of
1. the way and time
2. with yourself when praising (and the person being praised)
3. with your Creator


Hadith narrated by Miqdad Radhi Allahu anhu
"We were ordered by Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam to throw sand in the face of the those who praise."
Not literal
e.g. shaykh may praise mureed which will result in better attendance at gathering

Also this in relation of taqwa of the one beng praised too
e.g. Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam did not throw sand on Hasan bin Thabit radhi allahu anhu when he read poems praising Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam
nor did anyone throw sand to Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam when he praised them e.g. when Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam said to sayyidina abu Bakar Radhi Allahu anhu ......."you are not form the people of kibr" (Hadith prohibiting long izar when sayyidina Abu Bakar said " I am thin" meaning his izar will fall long as he was thin. The Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa salam said the above mentioned)

Sayyidina Umar AlKhattab
"Be weary of false praise for praise is slaughter"

SUMMARY
PRAISE IS ALLOWED WHEN

1. THE ONE PRAISED WILL TAKE BENEFIT FROM IT

2.THERE IS A SUPERIOR MAN WHOSE SUPERIORITY IS NOT KNOWN AND U WISH TO MAKE IT KNOWN
E.G. shaykh AAA praised Shaykh Furber from Cairo with the intention if anyone goes to Cairo should seek him and benefit from him who has deep knowledge in fiqh and hadith as he is not well known

Above are the intention for studying from Imam Abdullah Al-Haddad (RahimuLlah) translated as: All praise to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And salutations and greetings upon our master Muhammad and upon his family and companions. I intend to study and teach, take and give a reminder, take and give benefit, take and give advantage, to encourage the holding fast to the book of Allah and the way of his messenger, and calling to guidance and directing towards good hoping for the countenance of Allah and His pleasure, proximity and reward, transcendent is He.
