Talking bad about others

Q: My wife was guilty of adultery and she is repenting. But she is always talking bad about other women that sells themselves for drugs and always talking about other peoples wrongs. Is it wrong of me to tell her to stop talking and looking at other peoples wrongs and look at her own past wrong deeds? and that a married woman that commits adultery is worse than a single woman that sleeps around?I have real concern about my wife and the sin she has committed but she is always pointing fingers at others and forgets about herself. How long must she repent for her zina she committed?


A: Yes, it is better.

To the point where she becomes really remorseful.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
