“Abu Qilaabah Abdullaah ibn Zaid al-Jurmi said, ‘If you hear something about your brother which you dislike then exert yourself in making an excuse for him. And then if you can’t, say to yourself, ‘Maybe he has an excuse I don’t know about.’’ [Al-Hilyah, 2/285]
Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq al-Badr said, ‘What a difference there is between someone who strives to find an excuse for his brother and someone who invents lies and fabrications against him and twists what he says or does.’”

A man came and abused al-Ahnaf ibn Qais but he remained silent. Then he reviled him again persistently but al-Ahnaf still stayed quiet. So the man then said, “O what regret! Nothing stops him from answering me back except how worthless I am in his eyes.”
