That flattering is disapproved of

Q 2: Some people refer to the teacher as a "sacred" person and describe the school as a "sacred" place, which should be taken care of. What is the ruling on giving such a description as in these examples? (Part No. 26; Page No. 125

A: A teacher is to be held in high esteem, but should not be described as being sacred, for this is considered over-praising. Neither should the school be described as being sacred, for such description is reserved for the places that Allah has made sacred such as Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah), Al-Masjid Al-Nabawy (the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah) and Bayt-ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
