“The advisor (الناصح):

  • doesn’t become hostile towards you if you don’t accept his advice
  • says “my reward is upon Allah whether you accept or you don’t”
  • supplicates for you in your absence
  • doesn’t make apparent your shortcomings
  • doesn’t reveal them among the people

As for the repoachful (المؤنب), he is the opposite of that”. End translation. [Ash Shaykh Abu Ammar Yaasir All Adanee’s book “ادمان الطروق لمعرفة الفروق”, page 279]
