Benefit: Concealing the Sins of a Muslim
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
As for those who have no shame and make their sins apparent to the people, they have exposed themselves; therefore, they are not given concealment [with regards to their sins]. They are like the one who drinks alcohol amongst the people in the marketplaces and gatherings, such a person has exposed himself. We ask Allāh for good health.
Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz
