There's another Hadith and Sunnah Timothy that he graded as Hasson, but it's chain as is not fully connected, where the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is alleged to have said that if a Muslim blames a certain Muslim or finds fault with him for a certain sin that that other person commits, then that person will not die until they've committed that sin themselves. Right. And this is scary, right? And we're not necessarily saying like, there's some debate whether this hadith is authentic or not, but certainly, it should give us pause. And it should cause us to be very, very cautious with how we talk about the sins of other people. And especially this happens when it comes to public speakers

00:00:45 --> 00:01:23

these days. And there's a difference between criticizing a discourse and saying that this mistake was made versus delving into sins, right questioning motives and intentions and saying, well, this person is this or is that or is a hypocrite? Or is this sort of thing, it's scary. We sometimes when we look at people that are in the public spot spotlight, whether it's your local Imam, or whether it's the person on YouTube, we it's almost as if they're not a real person to us. And since they don't seem like a real person to us in some sort of sense, we feel free to just criticize and talk about them as if they're, you know, our neighbor, or some sort of cartoon character or some person

00:01:23 --> 00:01:59

in a novel, right, when in reality, you know, we should we should be a little bit more fearful of a loss, Pousada and the sentiment of this hadith, or suppose that hadith where if we are dwelling on the sins of others, and we're blaming and finding fault in others for these sorts of things, we're not safe from those same mistakes. And usually what happens is that we are criticizing people for a moment in their lives, and we don't know what the next moment will hold, right. We don't know if in the next moment, that person will repent. And we don't know if that particular sin, let's assume that it's a sin that they committed, maybe it will be the cause for their repentance and their own

00:01:59 --> 00:02:37

self reform. And then we might fall into that sin down the road. And it might not cause us to repent. And it might not cause us to reform and it might be a bigger deal and a bigger punishment for us than it was for the person that we initially found fault in. So and this doesn't apply to you know, again, like certain Before criticizing discourse or criticizing ideas we're talking about, okay, this person said this statement, it's not correct in the religion like that's something that is completely valid criticism, but we need to be very, very, very careful because valid criticism, or what starts is valid criticism can often descend and you better believe that the shaytaan was

00:02:37 --> 00:02:46

trying to help it descend into finding fault with other people questioning their motives and generally talking about their sins in a way that's not becoming
