Finding Faults Of Others

Ibn Abbas (ra) said:

“When you feel the need to mention your companion’s faults, remember your own” [Al-Adab Al Mufrad]

Muhammad ibn Sireen 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 said:

“Keep yourself busy in remembering your faults, so that you have no time left to remember the faults of others.”

Shaikh Al-Islam 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.”

Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Hadi Al-Wadi’ee said:

“So let my enemies say what they will, for my sins are many, and perhaps because of their backbiting and slander my sins will be lightened and instead fall upon their shoulders “
