This is Allaah, The Modest, The Most Generous (the Most Generous to whom one may ask something)
 
Allaah The Almighty is The Most Merciful Who can be asked and the Most Generous Who can give. It was narrated on the authority of Salmaan, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Your Lord The Almighty and the Exalted is characterized by modesty and concealment, so if a slave of His raises his hands (in supplication), He does not return them to him empty.”[1]
 
This is Allaah The Almighty: He loves modesty and concealment.
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah is characterized by modesty and concealment, and He loves modesty and concealment. So when one of you washes himself, let him conceal himself.”[2]
 
Congratulation to the one whom Allaah The Almighty has concealed:
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah does not conceal a person in this world but Allaah will conceal him on the Day of Resurrection.”[3]
 
 
 
He conceals whoever conceals the faults of a Muslim
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Whoever conceals (the faults of) a Muslim, Allaah will conceal him (his faults) on the Day of Resurrection.”[4]
 
 
 
He punishes whoever discloses the faults of Muslims
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “O you who have spoken the words of faith but faith has not entered your hearts! Do not backbite about the Muslims or seek out their faults, for whoever seeks out their faults, Allaah will seek out his faults even if he is in his house.”[5]
