Who is your enemy?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: The one who conceals your faults and shortcomings from yourself (does not tell your faults, so that they cannot be corrected) is your enemy [1]. Imam Ali (AS) through this wise sentence wanted to emphasize that hiding from someone, his/her faults, weaknesses and deficiencies is showing enmity towards that person because in this way that person will not be able to correct those faults.
