In the two Sahîhs, from Abî Dharr, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, may Allah send salutations and peace upon him, said, «Whoever called a man by [a name of] disbelief or said, “O enemy of Allah!” and he is not such, except it returns on him.» This hadîth and what came regarding its meaning obligate the Muslim to ascertain the ruling on the people and to be cautious of accusing his brother with a blameworthy description while he is free of it, merely due to suspicion or [blind] imitation of someone not relied upon; and Allah is the one help is sought from.
