Contents > Chapter 10: Excessive Praise for the Messenger of Allah > Conclusion



Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) should be praised with that with which Allah has praised him and granted him. Allah’s says in the Qur’aan, “Allah and His Angels praise the Prophet. O you who believe! Pray Allah to praise him and exalt his mention, and render him safe from evil.”[1] Indeed, Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) enjoys an exalted position and he is the best of creation. Allah granted him the Maqaam al-Mahmood and chose him as His Messenger, and He has placed lowliness and humiliation for those who defy his commands. To revere Allah’s Messenger is to revere his commands. But to exaggerate and exceed the limits in praising Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) is a path to deviation.
