Book Name:Musalman ki Parda Poshi kay Fazail
The Revered and Renowned Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘No companion should approach me with any words about another; I want to approach you with a clean heart.’ (Sunan Abi Dawood, vol. 4, pp. 348, Hadees 4860)
The famous Muhaddis, Sayyiduna Shaykh ‘Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dihlvi عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـقَـوِی, while elaborating on this part of the blessed Hadees, ‘No companion should approach me with any words about another’ has written: Neither should we discuss their shortcomings, wrong actions and bad habits, nor should we say that ‘he said this’ or ‘he did this’ or ‘so-and-so was saying like this’. (In short, such things which are related to someone should not be mentioned to another person). (Ashi’a-tul-Lam’aat, vol. 4, pp. 83)

(Mirat-ul-Manajeeh, vol. 6, pp. 472)
Nevertheless, there is no doubt that those who find faults with others if they account for themselves and have a quick glance at their own faults, then perhaps after seeing many of their own faults, they may become shocked, but regretfully, high hopes, worldly luxury and pleasure, wrong faith in the mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ despite being deprived of the fear of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and continuously committing sins make them heedless of their own reformation. Such foolish people are disgraced in this world, and will fall into disgrace in the Hereafter as well. Let’s listen to a blessed Hadees and learn a lesson.
Punishment of finding out Muslims’ faults
The Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated, ‘O you who have established faith with your tongues, but faith has
