Notice how it has been a trend in the society today, to speak about the bad doings of a certain person.
I mean, out of many ways you could introduce someone to a friend of yours, you would prefer humiliating him, letting out his secrets, his weakness..some could even go on and expose the smallest mistake he ever did..
Yet, this trend is still ridiculously accepted??
What??Just consider it a joke??
I'm really sorry, but Islam has clearly lined out..that out of so many things that you can joke around about..
aib's (weaknesses)..are not one of them.
Abu Barzah al Aslami and al Bara' ibn Azib (may Allah be pleased with them) narrate that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
"O you people who pay lip service to faith when it has not entered your hearts! Do not gossip about the Muslims and do not expose their faults. Whoever exposes the faults of his Muslim brother, Allah will expose his faults, and if Allah exposes his faults it will be open for everyone to see, even if he hid in the innermost part of his house." (Tirmidhi, Hibban).
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
"Whoever defends the honour of his brother in his absence, Allah will protect his face from the fire on the Day of Resurrection." (Tirmidhi).
Easy? Let's test and see..so those who are reading this...before you tell of a person's weakness..
THINK...one day..WHICH WEAKNESSES OF YOURS WILL ALLAH SHOW??
P/S: Dear friend, i'm living proof that this really happens..
For You are the Almighty
