Response to Praise

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Habib ‘Ali Zayn al-‘Abidin ibn ‘Abd ar-Rahman al-Jifri said, “I was taught by our teachers that whenever we are praised for things that we do not deem ourselves worthy of, we say after that, ‘Amin’, believing that in fact it was actually a supplication for what we would hope Allah (s.w.t.) would Help Realise in our nature.  And so, in whatever you heard of my being praised, I would simply say, ‘Amin’, and I would also say that it applies equally to those speaking and to those listening.”
