Unveil Faults Where It Can Prevent Harm

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Do you consider it bad to disclose the faults of a sinner? Disclose his faults so that people may know them. Disclose the faults in him, so that people may take precaution.” [Ihya Ulum Id-Deen by Imam Ghazali]

“It is lawful to narrate the faults of a person to save a Muslim from his injurious and harmful behaviour.

“If you see a learned man frequenting an innovator and fear his influence on him, it is lawful to disclose his innovation and sin, but not for any other reason.

“Similarly, if a man wants to engage a servant, it is lawful to disclose his bad habit of theft or any other crimes.

“If a man is cited as a witness by an innocent man, he may disclose the fault of his adversary.” [Ihya Ulum Id-Deen by Imam Ghazali]
