This is the foremost sickness of the heart. It is necessary for the human being to purify his heart of any doubts concerning Allah (swt), His Messenger (asws) and the Hereafter. This grave sickness afflicts some people, particularly at the point of death- leading them to an ugly end. We seek refuge in Allah from this. and noblemen of worldly stature. It is also the habit of speechmakers and the preachers that they praise the rich and wealthy who frequent their gatherings. There are six pitfalls in praise. Four for the adulator and two for the one who is being praised.
