Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1187 Is it right to tell a brother about what he is doing wrong even if the truth is going to make him angry?
In order to take on this task one needs to be aware as to how to address himself. He needs to choose his words carefully ensuring he doesn’t seem arrogant or ignorant.

It is advised you approach this brother with compassion and kindness. Explain to him that the purpose of speaking to him is to help him see the errors of his ways, rather than expressing superiority over him. If you feel that this cannot be achieved by yourself then ask someone who is able and willing to assist you.

It is very important to remember that if the questioner is female (non Mehram to the brother in question), then she needs to allocate this responsibility to someone who is a Mehram.
