Criticizing People Without Evidences

The Noble Shaykh Rabee ibn Haadi al-Madkhalee (may Allah preserve him) stated:

If you do not come with the evidences and reasons for this criticism (that you have made against individuals), the people would see that you have oppressed them, transgressed the boundaries against them and have attacked their practice of the religion without right. Therefore you now become the one who is being accused (of something evil) and you are in need of freeing your practice of the religion and honor (from the accusation of evil).

:قال شيخنا الهمام ربيع السنة الإمام حفظه الله

فإذا لم تأت بالأدلة وأسباب هذا الجرح رأى الناس أنك قد ظلمتهم وتعديت عليهم وطعنت في دينهم بغير وجه حق ، فصرت متهماً عند الناس فتحتاج إلى استبراء دينك وعرضك
