Backbiting has become a fashion and a trend amongst us all . We feed this evil habit thinking that were doing ourselves justice because someone has done someone wrong or said something wrong. I remember, not so long ago, I was in a very critical situation and all I should’ve been doing was holding on to the rope of Allah (swt), but instead I had the Fitnah of worrying about what pepole were thinking or saying- that was feeding satans goals. What I’m trying to say is that this is a grave sin that we are involving ourselves in and is a habit that is displeasing to Allah (swt) and has large consequences in this world and the hereafter. Learn that if anyone trys to tell you something that is not about themselves push it away – you don’t want to know! Remember you don’t even have to speak, your eyes could talk and this is part of fitnah to. I have been battling with this for sometime now and it’s upsetting how things can roll off of our tongues without the thought who we are slandering and hurting, remember Allah (swt) sees everything. If you know your doing it, stop it. If you no someone else’s is sharing the fitnah with you, stop them or move away. DON’T SPREAD IT! I want to take this opportunity to ask everyone to forgive me if I may have said knowingly or unknowingly of this nasty act and may Allah (swt) keeps us away from the fitnah of this world aameen.
