I wanted to know if using the English word idolise counts as a form of shirk.
In the English language the word idolise has two meanings. One is worship and the other is admire and see as a role model. I want to know that if somone says they idolise someone but not as a form of whorship but as a role model or someone they admire would they have commited shirk? Thank you
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.
All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Prophet Muhammad.
Although the second usage of the word you mentioned is figurative, still it is better to avoid it.
Allah knows best.
