Give your Brother an Excuse
appropriately reference this quote to: www.fatwa-online.com,
Humayd at-Taweel narrates on the authority of Abu Qulaabah who said:
"If displeasing news reaches you about your [Muslim] brother, then do your best to find an excuse for him, and if you are unable to find an excuse for him, then tell yourself:
Maybe there is an excuse for my brother which I do not know of."
