A lot of people have the desire to be known by a title for the sake of prestige. The people of the community would then respect them according to the designation. The main driving force behind this is the ego factor. Take a look at this ego-breaking Verse. [Shakir 28:83] (As for) that future abode, We assign it to those who have no desire to exalt themselves in the earth nor to make mischief and the good end is for those who guard (against evil) Then there are those who use other’s titles for themselves when they do not deserve them. The whole affair becomes extremely serious when the titles being used are the ones that belong exclusively to the Holy Infallibles (a.s.). TAFSEER IMAM HASSAN AL ASKARI (A.S.) Imam Ali Ibn Husayn (a.s.) narrated that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said: ‘If any of my male or female servant were to leave our wilayat, oppose our way and call others with the good names of ours which Allah (s.w.t.) has Chosen for establishing the affairs of the religion and the world, and the titles of ours, having full belief, without dissimulation, fear or religious reason, then Allah (s.w.t.) will raise them on the Day of Judgment and ask them, “O my slave, have you taken a Lord besides me?” And it will be said to them, “Allah is the Guardian”, their fate will then be with their shaytans who used to surround them and they used to obey them, “So now ask them for your reward for what you did”’.
