Q: I have been forced in making a kassam to something which someone confided in me! It is something un-Islamic which I think the person’s parents should know about! Recently the persons parents asked me if I knew what this person was up to and I just acted like I don’t really know anything. After I have made a kassam is it allowed for me to tell the persons parents?
A: You should conceal it. Concealing the faults of a muslim is a very great deed.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
