Claimed to have done just for the sake of You, but my heart meant something else to You

Sufyan Ibn ‘Uyaynah said, “Mutriq bin ‘Abdullaah used to supplicate to Allaah saying,

«اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ مِمَّا تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ مِنْهُ، ثُمَّ عُدْتُ فِيهِ، وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ مِمَّا جَعَلْتُهُ لَكَ عَلَى نَفْسِي، ثُمَّ لَمْ أَفِ لَكَ بِهِ، وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ مِمَّا زَعَمْتُ أَنِّي أَرَدْتُ بِهِ وَجْهَكَ، فَخَالَطَ قَلْبِي مِنْهُ مَا قَدْ عَلِمْتَ»

“O Allaah! I seek Your forgiveness for the sins I do after I have given them up; and seek Your forgiveness for the commitments I promised to You, but could not fulfill; and seek Your forgiveness from whatever deed I claimed to have done just for the sake of You, but my heart meant something else to You.””
