The Difference Between Advicing and Exposing

Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali writes:

وقال الفضيل بن عياض موضحًا الفرق بين الناصح والشامت: المؤمن يستر وينصح والفاجر يهتك ويعير

“When Al-Fudhayl Ibn Iyaadh was asked about the difference between advicing and exposing, he said: “A believer covers up and advises [his or her fellow believers], whereas an evildoer exposes and humiliates [others].”

["Jami' Al-'Uloom wal-'Hikam", 77].
