Husn-e-Zann (which is a desired quality as mentioned in the Hadith: ظنوا بالمؤمنين خيرا [Entertain good thoughts about believers.]) requires no proof. Not having any proof for soo-e-zann (evil thoughts) (which is abhorred and prohibited by Allah Ta`ala in the Qur’aan: يا أيها الذين أمنوا اجتنبوا كثيرا من الظن (O you who believe! Abstain from suspicions.) [12:49]) and a person merely being a Muslim are sufficient for entertaining good thoughts for a person. However, one requires proof to have evil thoughts for the next person.

(It is sinful to entertain evil thoughts regarding someone without any reliable proof. Allah Ta`ala states: إنّ بعض الظنّ إثم [Some thoughts are sinful.])
