​Hate hearing your celebrity speakers being criticized for speaking falsehood? Like to complain by saying criticizing them is wrong? Imâm Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalî stated: “Know, that mentioning a person in a way which he hates, is Harâm, if the goal behind it is merely to put him down, insult him and belittle him. However, if there is a benefit for the general mass of Muslims, or a specific group of them, and the goal of it (i.e. the mentioning of a person) is to attain that benefit, then it is not Harâm;  rather it is recommended.” “Al-Farq Bayn an-Nasîhah wat-Ta’yîr”, pg. 1
