I would like to ask an important
question. I am suspecting a brother to be a spy. There are many evidences which leads me
and many others to this conclusion. Knowing the person, he seems to be a very pious person
MAshaa'Allah. However, there were many matters in which he gave us an impression that he
is a spy. Honestly, I am very confused. Am I aloud to suspect someone of being a spy? Am I
aloud to warn others? What should I do in this case.
Wa Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Praise be to Allaah.
The basic principle is that we should think well of another Muslim, unless he does many things that indicate that we should not think well of him. This is what is known as circumstantial evidence or corroborative evidence. If this happens in this person's case, then there is no harm in being cautious around him, because he is the one who has brought it upon himself by his own suspicious actions. And Allaah is the source of strength.
