How Should a Muslim Praise Another Muslim?

Allah’s Messenger SallAllahu Alaikhi Wasallam said if a person desires to praise his friend (provided that he knows well about that person), he should say:

« أَحْسِبُ فُلَانًا، وَاللهُ حَسِيبُهُ، وَلَا أُزَكِّي عَلَى اللهِ أَحَدًا أَحْسِبُهُ، إِنْ كَانَ يَعْلَمُ ذَاكَ، كَذَا وَكَذَا »

“Ahsebo fulanan (name the person) wallahu haseebohu, wala azakki alallahe ahadan ahsebohu in kana yalamo dak kada wa kada”

 

Translation:

I think (him to be) so, and Allah is the one Who will take his accounts (as He knows his reality) and none can sanctify anybody before Allah but (he appears) to be so and so. (and that only if he knows well about that person)” (Muslim)
