[26:87-89] – Supplication Against Being Disgraced On Judgment Day, And For Purity Of Heart

وَلَا تُخْزِنِي يَوْمَ يُبْعَثُونَ. يَوْمَ لَا يَنْفَعُ مَالٌ وَلَا بَنُونَ. إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ.

And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected – The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children, But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.

Wa la tukhzini yawma yubathun. Yawma la yanfau maluwwa la banun. Illa man atallaha biqalbin salim.

Just as Prophet Ibraheem asked for what is good and honorable in this life and the next, he also prayed that Allah would protect him against disgrace and dishonor. Neither one’s wealth nor deeds will be of any avail on Judgment Day, and so to waste one’s time acquiring wealth and raising children to do nothing more than the same is a calamitous waste of time and life. Prophet Ibraheem makes specific mention of the heart because if it is sound, then one’s deeds are sound, but if it is corrupt, then one’s deeds can only be corrupt. -Kalemtayeb.com (collected tafseers).
