Exaggeration: غلو


Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah protect and preserve him) was obviously upset. He scolded the compiler of a book: Islahi waqiyat, (extracts from his discourses) sternly,

‘I reviewed your book. There is gross exaggeration in honorifics (used with the name of sayyidi), like mujadid al millat, shaikhul Islam and other titles.  This is inappropriate and unacceptable. Remove them all in the next edition.’

Outside Bab Fatima radhiAllah anha, Masjid Darul Uloom Karachi, 23 Shawwal 1436/9 August 2015
