disclosing our sins to anyone

In Islam one cannot disclose his sins (small or big) to anyone; he must keep his secrets (regarding his sins) to himself. From Islam's perspective the self-respect a person has for himself is so significant that he can only confess his sins before God in the sense of asking for forgiveness. Not only will he not lose his respect but by confessing before Allah he will gain more. This is something solely restricted to God, for no other person even if he were to be a trustworthy person, is capable of returning one’s respect (that has been lost when he confesses to that person), let alone increasing it. On top of that, based on the tawhidi (monotheistic) viewpoint in Islam the sole cause for everything in this world is God [1]

and no one can do anything without his permission especially granting forgiveness and pardon which has not been assigned to any individual or character in Islam other than Allah (swt) himself.

@Alireza Huseini Thank you for the reminder. Revealing our own sins to other people will not help anything. It will possibly cause them to sin by backbiting us and bring fitna in our community as the news starts to spread person to person, like an infection. It is best to confess our faults to Allah SWT and ask forgiveness. Of course promise to not repeat it again and ask Allah's help to reduce sins.
