    Searching for faults in others

    Rasūlullāh ‏‎ said:
    “Blessed is he who is preoccupied with his own defects rather than those of other people.” -Bazzar from Anas رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه (Hadith graded as Hasan)

    Ibn Abbas رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه said:
    “When you feel the need to mention your companion’s faults, remember your own” [Imam Bukhari in Al-Adab Al Mufrad]

    Muhammad ibn Sireen رحمه الله used to say:
    “We used to say that those amongst us with the most sins are those who spend their time talking about the sins of others.”

    Imam Sufyaan ath-Thawri رحمه الله said:
    “Keep yourself busy in remembering your faults, so that you have no time left to remember the faults of others.”

    Ibn Taimiyah said:
    “Some people have the disease of criticizing all the time. They forget the good about others and only mention their faults. They are like flies that avoid the good and pure places and land on the bad and wounds. This is because of the evil within the self and the spoiled nature.”

    Abu Hatim said:
    “Probing and seeking the faults of others is from the branches of hypocrisy just like thinking good of others is from the branches of faith.

    The intelligent one always has a good opinion of his brothers, and keeps his grief and sadness to himself. As for the ignorant one, he has evil opinion of his brothers and does not think about his crimes and distress.” [Siyar A’lam an-Nubala]

    Imam Ash-Shafi’e رحمه الله said:
    ”Let not your tongue mention the shame of another, for you yourself are covered in shame, and all men have tongues. If your eye falls upon the sin of your brother, shield them and say ‘O my eye all men have eyes‘.”

    ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattab رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه said:
    “Do not think about a word that exits from a Muslim’s mouth except that you interpret it in the best manner.” [Ameelah of Al-Muhaamilee, p.395]

    Muhammad Ibn Sireen رحمه الله said:
    “If something reaches you about your brother, then search for an excuse for him. If you do not find an excuse for him, then make an excuse for him.” [Al-Jaami’ Li Shu’ab Al-Eemaan, 14/441]

    Ja’far Ibn Muhammad رحمه الله said:
    “If something that you dislike reaches you about your brother then search for one excuse for him up to seventy excuses. If it hits the mark, (then good). If not, then say, ‘Perhaps he has an excuse that I am not aware of.‘ ” [Al-Jaami’ Li Shu’ab Al-Eemaan, 14/442]

    Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali رحمه الله
    said: "The hypocrite looks for faults; the believer looks for excuses."

    Greetings and peace be with you azc;

    Thanks for sharing, a good reminder as always. And just a thought, when you point the finger and call someone a hypocrite, there are three fingers pointing back at you.

    You will never look into the eyes of anyone who does not matter to God.
