Hadith #1310
from Bulugh Al-Maram.

Compiled by Hafiz ibn Hajar al-Asqalani

Notes from the book Subul us-Salaam by Muhammad bin Ismail As-San'aani


wa 'an Mu'aadhibni Jabalin radhiyallahu ta'alaa 'anhu qaala qaala rasoolullahi sallaallahu alayhe wa salam, " Man 'ay-yara  akhaaho bi dhanbin lam yamut hat-ta ya' malah." Akh ra ja hut- Tirmidhee wa has-snah wa sanaduhu mun qa ti'.


#1310. Narrated Mu'adh bin Jabal[a] radhiyallahu ta'alaa 'anhu, Allah's Messenger Sallallahu alayhe wa salam said, "If anyone disgraces his brother for a sin, he will not die before committing it himself."[3] [At-Tirmidhi [b] reported it saying it is a hasan[c] Hadith, but a Munqati'.[d]]


[3] It thus gets known to us that merely making a mention of a vice is a sinful act. It is a sin to mention a vice by attributing it to someone, but it is a double sinful act to mention it directly in front of someone in order to rake his memory deliberately to put him to shame. Hadith states that o­ne should not remind anyone of his sin as a rejoinder to his statement.

*** rejoinder - Main Entry: re·join·der
Pronunciation: ri-'join-d&r
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English rejoiner, from Middle French rejoindre to rejoin
1 : the defendant's answer to the plaintiff's replication
2 : REPLY; specifically : an answer to a reply
