Backbiting, a sin which we actually don’t realize a sin. One of the major moral vice; spreading rapidly among the people, used to call gossip, slander, backbite, whisper, talk behind someone’s back, criticize and so on In point of fact, we ourselves don’t know why we do it.
In surah Hujrat, Allah says,
O you who believe! Avoid most of suspicion, for surely suspicion in some cases is a sin, and do not spy nor let some of you backbite others. Does one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? But you abhor it; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, surely Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), Merciful.
And further Allah says,
No one make back bite. Any one among you would like to eat the meat of his dead brother
In Surah Al-Qamah,
Neither obey thou each feeble oath-monger; detractor, going about with slander
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
One of the greatest of the major sins is to stretch out one’s tongue without right against the honor of a Muslim.
Above picture along with the saying of IMAM ALI(AS) shows the consequences of the backbiters. May Allah help us and forbid us from such evils and vices.AMEEN…
