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.)
