Ibn al-Jawzi (May Allah shower him with Mercy) said:

“Whoever sets his tongue free to slander and speak about the honors of the Muslims, and seeks their faults, Allah will hold back his tongue from professing the Shahadah (Testimony of Faith) [at the time of] death” [1].

قال ابن الجوزي –رحمه الله-: ومن سرّح لسانه في أعراض المسلمين، واتبع عوراتهم أمسك الله لسانه عن الشهادة عند الموت
