قال صلى الله عليه وسلم : ” إذا كان أحدكم مادحاً صاحبه لا محالة فليقل : أحسبُ فلاناً والله حسيبهُ ولا أزكي على الله أحداً أحسبهُ – إن كان يعلم ذاك – كذا وكذا “
He (SAWS) said: ‘If anyone of you is impelled to praise his brother, then he should say: ‘I deem so-and-so to be…and Allah is his reckoner…and I don’t praise anyone, putting it (i.e. my praising) forward, in front of Allah’s commendation, however I assume him so and so’…if he knows that of him.’
