‘What happened?’ He replied, ‘I found faults with the blessed Companions (رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم), and Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has made me faulty!’ Having said that, he covered his faulty eye with his hand.’ (Sharh-us-Sudoor, pp. 280)

Dear Islamic brothers! From the above-mentioned parable not only have we learnt about the glory and dignity of the blessed companions, but we have also learnt that if the tongue is given freedom, then sometimes it is uncontrolled in speaking ill to such an extent that it starts speaking utter nonsense against those people who love Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, therefore it is extremely necessary to control it, otherwise, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ forbid, the same tongue may become the cause of disgrace for us on the Day of Judgement.
As a saint رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said, ‘The tongue is like a beast. If you do not chain it, it will become your enemy and will harm you.’ (Al-Mustatraf, vol. 1, pp. 146)
Remember! It is the duty of a Muslim not to abuse anyone, nor should he insult anyone without Shar’i permission, nor should he commit backbiting against anyone or listen to any backbiting. He should neither reveal anyone’s faults, nor anyone’s secrets, nor should he harm anyone, nor hurt anyone’s feelings. He should neither beat anyone without Shar’i permission nor wrongly criticise anyone else. The Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: ‘اَلۡمُسۡلِمُ مَنۡ سَلِمَ الۡمُسۡلِمُوۡنَ مِنۡ لِّسَانِهِ وَيَدِهِ’ i.e., a perfect Muslim is that person from whose tongue and hand other Muslims are safe.
(Sahih Bukhari, vol. 1, pp. 15, Hadees 10)
Do not back evils
Some people do not speak ill of anybody, but the cunning Satan tries to trap them in some other ways, that is to say, when at any gathering hidden faults of Muslims are being revealed, then such people instead of preventing them
