Concealing the Faults of a Muslim




Ibn ‘Abbās (رضي الله عنه) that the prophet (ﷺ) said:

“Whoever conceals the faults of his Muslim brother, Allah will conceal his faults on the Day of Resurrection. And whoever exposes the faults of his Muslim brother, Allah will expose his faults even by revealing those he committed in (the privacy of) his home.” [Recorded by Ibn Mājah (no. 2546) and al-Albānī said it is authentic in “Sahih Sunan Ibn Mājah” (no. 2063)]

Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen (رحمه الله) said:

"Concealing the sin of a person may be an ordainment and praiseworthy, and it may be forbidden. If we see a person committing a sin, and he is a wicked man who is indulging in sin, and concealing his sin will only increase his evil and wrongdoing, then we do not conceal him; rather, we report him so that he will be deterred; a deterrence that will achieve the objective." 

All praise is due to Allah we ask Him to bless the Prophet Sallah Llah Alei Wasalam and the companions and let's die in the path of Qur'an and Sunnah.
