Ibn Qudaamah al-Maqdisee: The Salaf used to love the one who would point out their faults to them, and as for us then the most hated of people to us are those who make us aware of our faults.
— [Minhaaj al-Qaasideen 196]
Abu Hurayra said, “A believer is the mirror of his brother. When he sees a fault in it, he should correct it.”
— [Al-Adab Al-Mufrad #238, ‘Hasan’ by Shaykh al-Albaanee]
