‏الزهد والرقائق‏ (The Book of Abstinence and Heart-Melting Narrations)
CHAPTER: IT IS PROHIBITED TO PRAISE ANYONE SO MUCH THAT THERE MAY BE FEAR OF HIS BEING INTOXICATED BECAUSE OF THAT  

No. 7139

'Abd al-Rahman b. Abu Bakra reported on the authority of his father that a person praised another person in the presence of Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), whereupon he said: Woe be to thee, you have broken the neck of your friend, you have broken the neck of your friend-he said this twice. If one of you has to praise his friend at all, he should say: I think (him to be) so and Allaah knows it well and I do not know the secret of the heart and Allaah knows the destined end, and I cannot testify his purity against Allaah but (he appears) to be so and so.

No. 7140

Thereupon Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Woe be to thee, you have broken the neck of your friend, and he said this twice. Then Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: If anyone has to praise his brother at all, he should say: I think him to be so and so, and even on this he should say: I do not consider anyone purer than Allaah (considers).
