Therefore, it legislated laws that fulfill such interests, and it calls for facilitation, removal of hardships, averageness and moderation in everything. Religious exaggeration is contrary to such interests, so this study come to highlight the attitude of Islam towards exaggeration, the risks of religious exaggeration on generalities and necessary intentions, and the role that the Islamic policy plays to end such a phenomenon. However, there are various reasons and aspects of exaggeration, all of which might affect generalities and necessary intentions, but the Islamic policy plays a key role in overcoming the phenomenon of exaggeration through preventive and remedial measures.
