By Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani
Translated by Shaykh Yusuf Laher
The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
“That person who taunts and ridicules his Muslim brother over a sin from which he has repented, will not die until he himself commits that same sin.”For example, you come to know that a certain person committed or was involved in a particular sin and you also know that this person has repented from it. To think low of him or to taunt or ridicule him because of that sin, by saying something like: “You are the one who was involved in certain evil actions”, is in itself a sin.
