Exaggeration is a deviation in religion and religiousness and the exaggerators has always been known as a dilemma in the Islamic culture.
Exaggeration means going beyond the due measures, and the exaggerators are those who believe Imam Ali and the other Imams are gods. The ignorance and inordinate love by some naive Shi'as and desire of some leaders of the exaggerators to reaching wealth and power are among the motives of the exaggerators.
By reference to the verses and the Hadiths and the positions taken by Ahl Al – Bait and also opposition of the Shi'a theologians and scholars to the exaggerators, the falseness of the belief can be proved. The great comprehensive Ziarat is full of the excellences of the Imams but no exaggeration is included in it.
At the end, the idea of those who have reduced the position of the Imams to the pious Ulama and claimed that Shi'as attribute ultra-human characteristics to their Imams is critiqued.
