    well, there are some thing, which should not be hided, for example one of my brother was talking about stealing, or robbery,,...

    if some one is committed with sin hidden, and you are the one, who saw him. than you must have to hide that..

    you wrote great, every one in this world can never be the perfect, every one is sinner, and every one can be committed mistakes..so no body should have to feel himself/herself perfect.... .. only the Quran, can avoid us from doing sins. recitation of Quran on daily basis, and offering prayer can make us sense, can avoid us,, from every kind of sin and mistakes.

    Subhanallah a few sisters and I just had this conversation! In a recent Khutba, the Imam mentioned the importance of changing a situation and helping the community by exposng sins. Unfortunately, I cannot remember everything but the sisters were discussing this khutba for clarification. We mentioned that a person who is outwardly doing something has already exposed his/her sins. We know that we mae excuses for the believers but with something that may harm the Muslims we have to address it. In some cases we have to address the person in hopes tht ty stop. If they choose not to listen then you have to tell the community about this person or go to the Imam as their actions may harm someone.

    I also thought about this because my ex husband was someone who committed sin concerning marriage and he continued to marry. I was not sure whether to expose his sin or not. However, I agreed that the best decision would be to keep it in privae unless asked. As the prophet saw did. On one occasion a woman came to the Prophet saw to suggest marrying a brother in whch the proophet saw replied ' he keeps a stick' to warn her that he bet his wives. Sahih Bukhari and Muslim. Thus we see the Prophet did not just tell everyone and blast the brother out but when asked he gave an honest answer. So in that we can see one way to deal with this situation and Allah knows best.

    Ameen.
    I was wondering brothers and sisters, when one is aware after they have sinned, say a couple of hours later, do they get double reward of repenting promptly/ straight away?

    Alhamdulillahir rabbil al ameen!

    Jazakallah khair brother for this very beneficial and important post.

    However, as a Super Moderator, it isn't enough that you provide such information and then not act upon its teaching.

    A very recent thread in the TurnToIslam Lounge that was previously entitled:
    "My Mother is Committing Zina - Help!" has been allowed to go on and on without any moderator intervening to stop the exposure of the sins of a Muslim mother.

    I find it strange that a thread like this which teaches the ideal way of living and doing things can co-exist with a thread that violates the fundamental principles of Islam that you enumerated.

    I don't even know if this thread is being moderated. Or if anyone is even listening.

    But I had to speak out against that ugly thread started by a son who had no qualms speaking about the sins of his own mother. He could have sought advice in private..... but he did it as a public event. Which makes his sin even graver.

    I think that the ulemas dont do it for money. They bring out books for the benefit of the ummat and i dont think that money is a factor involved for them. Its more to do with the betterment of the muslims and for Allah's pleasure.

    Although your concern is very appreciable
