Don’t Gloat over Your Brother’s Sins
The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:
Don’t become happy about your brother falling into sins [or mistakes], taking that as a proof of your intelligence or how right you were about him. Rather ask Allāh for protection–for yourself and for him–because sins coming from you or from him are [in either case] deficiencies and weaknesses.
And a believer doesn’t reach perfection in īmān¹ until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.
¹Īmān is faith as it consists of speech, action, and beliefs; it increases with acts of obedience to Allāh and decreases with acts of disobedience to Him (trans.)

لا تفرح بزلة أخيك؛ لتبرهن على ذكائك وصدق حكمك عليه.
بل سل الله لك وله العافية.
فالمعصية منك أو منه نقص وضعف.
والمؤمن لا يبلغ كمال الإيمان حتى يحب لأخيه ما يحب لنفسه.
