Q: A few days ago I’ve seen a cousin of mine stealing another cousins watch. And I complained to his mother because this cousin of mine is going astray. He got angry with me. Now I feel bad, thinking I’ve committed a sin by complaining. So did I actually commit a sin
N.B It’s not the first time he stole.
A: This is not a sin.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
