Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ forbid, due to our act of revealing people’s faults, if Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ reveals our hidden faults to people, then what will happen to us? Therefore, immediately repent of this sin. Likewise, we should apologize to those whom we have insulted and disgraced by mentioning their evils and backbiting about them. We should also
