He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, within three darknesses. That is Allah , your Lord; to Him belongs dominion. There is no deity except Him, so how are you turned away? (Qur’an 39:6)
I wanted to share an important reminder with you and remind myself also about a very dangerous thing that we constantly do and take part in and do not realize the danger of it, and that is Backbiting.
If you are unable to recognize what is on this picture, it is a dead person’s body on a dinner table, and when I saw this picture at a seminar I attended, I was immediately repulsed and disgusted, and then the sheikh mentioned Ayah 12 in Surah Al-Hujurat:
O you who have believed, avoid much (negative) assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? you would detest it. And Fear Allah; indeed, Allah is accepting of repentance and Merciful.
EVERY TIME one backbites, it is as if he ate that person’s dead flesh!
Allah described backbiting with dead meat specifically because the dead can’t defend themselves, likewise, when we backbite about someone else, they can’t defend themselves, and also that one will negatively impact the person reputation and honor, and a person would rather be dead than have their honor and reputation be ruined. Another reason is that dead meat is poisonous, so its not going to affect and poison anyone else except the person eating it!
Many of us would talk behind someone’s back and give the excuses like, “Well its true! this person did this action, its not backbiting!”
The Definition of Ghiba ( backbiting) in Islam is: Saying something that is a 100% TRUE about you brother/sister in Islam, that he/she would not like to be said!
The Prophet swt said: O Those who believe in the tongue and not in the heart, don’t backbite the Muslims, don’t follow their private mistakes, who ever follows Muslim private mistakes, Allah will follow his private mistakes, and whoever Allah follows his private mistakes, Allah will disgrace him even in his house.”
Please next time you open your mouth to comment negatively about someone, THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK! Remember that that comment is not worth poisoning your heart and soul and displeasing Allah over.
Tips to avoid backbiting:
1.Constantly keeping silent.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said- “Let the one who believes in Allah and the Hereafter utter good words, or let him be silent.”
2. Recognize that nobody is perfect; we are all lacking in some way. if someone is spoken ill of, Remind yourself of yourself.
3. If you hear a rumor about someone’s misfortune, strive for compassion rather than continuing the gossip. Remind others not to gossip, and if they don’t listen, walk away. Allah praised such action in the Quran: “If they hear gossip, they walk away” (Quran 28:55).
4. Repent to Allah for any mistakes you make, and seek the forgiveness of the person you hurt.
We All make mistakes, but the believer if the one who keeps struggling with his Nafs ( Self) and Shaitan to please Allah SWT.
"Whoever sought the pleasure of Allah though it was displeasing to the people then Allah becomes pleased with him, and will make the people please with him. and whoever sought the pleasure of the people though it was displeasing to Allah then Allah becomes displeased with him and will make the people displeased with him" (Tirmidhi)
