What is called "exaltation" in this article is the argument that Ibn Taymiyyah has made in his books about the repentance of the prophets and their innocence from sins. According to this argument, the prophets were not innocent of their sins and always prayed to God for their sins. According to Ibn Taymiyyah, this repentance does not contradict the position of the prophets and does not cause their dignity to be diminished, but such repentance leads to the elevation of their position; Because God Himself has commanded repentance and called Himself repentance. In the present study, attempt to evaluate Ibn Taymiyyah's view on the truth of the prophets' repentance from sins by a descriptive-analytical method and with a critical approach. In the end, it is concluded that his view is inconsistent with such things as: the truth of repentance, the consensus of scholars, and explicit verses of the Qur'an.
