Praising Shaykh publicly in his presence

Question ID: 34413


Is it permissible for a mureed to praise his Shaykh in his presence in front of a gathering?

Mureeds argue that this is permissible from Ahadith, one such example being that Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said to Umar Radiallahu Anhu ‘I do not see the Shaytan, except that he follows a pathway other than your path.’

These mureeds, who are ulama therefore say that if there is no fear of pride or arrogance due to the known piety of the Shaykh, then such praise is permissible.

Is this assertion correct?

This is like throwing sand onto the one who has been praised.
In most cases the praised one and the one praising are fakes, wolves in sheep clothing, pulled up with pride and arrogance.
How on earth they are drawing an analogy using Nabi (S.A.W.) and Umar (R.A.).
In most, such statements are made about the Shaykh which tantamount to Shirk.
Avoid going to such gatherings wherein this is perpetrated.
