These days when Muslims give advise or denounce an unislamic act publicly done by a fellow Muslim, some Muslims will say “ who are you to judge them? only God can judge them” the Sahabas R.A when advised to fear Allah, will thank the person with tears in their eyes.
it is every muslims duty to speak the truth and accept that truth, even if it is against themselves.
"O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor”
for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]
The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
"Whosoever leaves off obedience &separates from the Jamaa'ah & dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting ...
asabiyyah , then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."
Today if someone questions our behavior, we feel we are being accused or worse insulted, we start finding fault with the person advising us and saying, “You aren’t perfect, you can’t tell me what to do.”
We need to embrace the concept that we could have done something wrong,we should actually be thankful that we have someone as a friend or family who has taken the time out to come and advise us. If not for love and care towards us, why would someone else care what we do?
Why should we bother as to what others do?
Because Allah tells us to, Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma‘roof (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar
(polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful. [Surah Âl ‘Imrân, 3:104]
Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq narrates,

I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) say, “When people see something objectionable and do not change it, Allah will soon include them all in His punishment. (Al-Tirmidhi)
The Prophet (ﷺ) said

If you see a munkar (un-islamic act), you change it with your hand; and if you cannot do that, then change it with your mouth (speak out against it); and if you cannot do [even] that, then forbid it in your heart — and that is the least of belief. (Muslim)
Many of the collectors of Hadith like Imam Buhari and Imam Muslim used to judge the reliability of the person narrating the hadith by their outward actions and not by What’s in the heart.
Umar Ibn Al-Khattab said,
Verily, in the time of the Prophet(ﷺ) the people would be judged by revelation, but the revelation has ended. Now we judge you according to your outward deeds.
Whoever shows us good, we will trust him and favor him and it is not for us to judge his inner secrets, for Allah will hold him accountable for those. Whoever shows us evil, then we will not trust him or believe in him even if he claims his intention is good. [Sahîh al-Bukhari]
We know that Allah will judge our deeds starting from our intentions. But among Muslims we judge by deeds while allowing them the possibility that we have misread them . However, their improper deeds warrant our nisiha, our gentle counsel to them, without using harsh words.
We must make as many excuses as possible for the sake of your brother/sister by giving them the benefit of the doubt. Understand the scenario of the action and the situation of the doer whilst he was committing that action.
We should try to advise privately first but if the person committing the sin and inviting people to it in public, then such people deserve to be spoken to openly and warned against. Exhaust yourself in advising privately and having husnul dhan(good thoughts and excuses).
Always bear in mind that the most hated of speech to Allah is when one man says to another, ‘Fear Allaah,’ and the other says, ‘Mind your own business!’”
