[Quote] You should start with yourself first when supplicating

It is befitting for the individual that when he supplicates (makes du'ā') he starts with himself first. Mūsā, may peace be upon him, said: ​

{O my Lord! Forgive me and my brother} [Sūrah Al-A'rāf 7:151]

Nūh, may peace be upon him, said:

 {My Lord! Forgive me, and my parents} [Sūrah Nūh 71:28]

Thus having given priority to himself over his parents. And the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Start with yourself". Starting with oneself is more appropriate when it comes to supplicating.
