Praising the Prophet is permissible by the scholarly consensus. In addressing the Prophet, Ayah 4 in Suratul-Qalam means, “Indeed you have great manners.” Suratul-A^raf, Ayah 157 means, “It is those who praise the Prophet, honor him and help him, following the light that was brought with him; they will surely be the successful.”

 

The hadith related by at-Tabaraniyy means, “Some women praised the Prophet, peace be upon him, in his presence by saying, ‘How wonderful it is to be the neighbor of  Muhammad.’” In addition, it has been confirmed that many companions have praised the Prophet including Hassan bin Thabit and others. The Prophet did not denounce their action; in fact he approved it.
