I am curious seeing as Islam and the Catholics seem to be getting closer these days. What would be a Muslim's opinion on some of the pope's titles like Holy Father, Holy See, His Holiness.

We worship God and God alone. We don't need an intermediary, we just pray directly to The Most High.

Regarding the pope's titles we do not adhere to that creed.So those titles are not relevant to us.
l checked Islam qa the only thing I found is that we can call our own scholars father if they have become elders......nothing else and Allah knows best .........since we do not take any men as lords over us.
“Then, We have sent the Revelation to you (O Muhammad saying): “Follow the religion of Ibraaheem (Abraham) Haneef (Islamic Monotheism — to worship none but Allaah) and he was not of the Mushrikoon (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers).
“O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad ) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and pass over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allaah a light (Prophet Muhammad ) and a plain Book (this Qur’aan).
Wherewith Allaah guides all those who seek His Good Pleasure to ways of peace, and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light and guides them to the Straight Way (Islamic Monotheism).”
