Be careful not to end up belittling a sin while trying not to be judgmental of someone. Learn to differentiate between the sinner and the sin. Allah may forgive the sinner, but that doesn’t change the severity of the sin.
Ibn Masʿūd would say, ‘A believer regards their sin as if they were sitting beneath a mountain which they fear may fall upon them, whereas the sinner regards their sin as if it were a fly that lands on their nose and they swipe it away.’
