Is it correct to say to some prominent figures “Your Majesty,” “Your Highness”, “I hope,” “I wish” etc?.


Praise be to Allah.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 

There is nothing wrong with it provided that the one to whom you say that deserves it, and there is no fear that this will lead to pride and self-admiration. The same applies to saying, “I hope” and “I wish”.
