Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.): Glorifying Tyrants is Shirk

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, “If you glorify this world’s tyrants, pharaohs, kings, and rich yet forget Allah (s.w.t.) and do not glorify Him, the verdict on you will be as the verdict on the idol worshipper.  Those whom you glorify will become your idols.  Worship the Creator of the idols and then the idols will humble themselves to you.  Draw near to Allah (s.w.t.) and then the creatures will come near to you.  As much as you glorify Allah (s.w.t.), His creatures glorify you.  As much as you love the Creator, the creatures love you.  As much as you fear Him, His creatures fear you. As much as you honour His Commandments and Prohibitions, His creatures honour you.”
