    Also, when a person come to know that his/her friend or a relative has talked this about him/her, he/she will never respect you nor likes to talk with you and please admit your fault. After doing all this never expect that person to call you pleasantly,obviously he/she will get mad, it your duty to go to him/her and Appologize to make huffiness go away as you are not going to be down in status after Appology. So, i request my followers to resolute today and move ahead in Appologizing.If you know that a person has this bad habbit or quality, go and help him/her to get rid of his/het bad habbit instead of doing backbackiting. Because this will only breed hate in many people against that innocent person and in a long run will breed hate between him/her and society. So do a favour on your society and breed love and if not for the sake of love then for yourself to be happy in this world and hereafter.

    So, I've been thinking for so long to write on this too. If we take an imaginary trip through our country,we shall be thrilled by 95% of people mainly ladies backiting about walkby peeps in a mall. How were their dressing, way of talking, facial features and many more. If these ladies can do that then talking about of our relatives is not a big deal, Not at all. And most of you must be agreed with me as we all know what are the conversations among our moms, khalas, phuphos and chachis whenever they meet up. Not only this, i have met those mothers who not even forgive their children in this regard and believe me I've faced it myself. After doing all this, when siblings grewup and there comes their families and property Dealings, parents then rant about their upbringing and said "what we have not given to them that they are doing this, hating each other". Neither such ladies and men will never accept that it was their fault.

    #Backbiting (#Gheebah) and it’s Expiation! 
The Muslim has to guard his tongue and avoid things that have been forbidden. 
Among these forbidden things which people often take lightly are gheebah (backbiting), buhtan (#slander) and nameemah (malicious #gossip) 
Gheebah or backbiting means speaking about a Muslim in his absence and saying things that he would not like to have spread around or mentioned. 
Buhtan or slander means saying things about a Muslim that are not true, or in other words telling lies about him. Nameemah or malicious gossip means telling one person what another said in order to cause trouble between them. 
There is a great deal of evidence to show that these actions are haram (impermissible). It will suffice for us to mention just a few of them in order to demonstrate that they are haram. 
Allah (The Most High) says: ❝Neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful.❞
[Quran 49:12] 
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ❝Do you know what gheebah (backbiting) is?❞ They said, ❝Allah and His Messenger know best.❞ He said, ❝Saying something about your brother that he dislikes.❞ It was said, ❝What if what I say about my brother is true?❞ He said, ❝If what you say is true then you have backbitten about him, and if it is not true, then you have slandered him.❞ [Muslim]
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) said: 
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) passed by two graves and said; ❝They are being punished, but they are not being punished for anything that was difficult to avoid. 
One of them used to walk about spreading malicious gossip (nameemah), and the other used not to take precautions to avoid getting urine on himself when he urinated.❞
Then he called for a green branch, which he split in two and planted a piece on each grave, and said; ❝May their torment be reduced so long as these do not dry out.❞
[al-Bukhaari, Muslim] 
For a person to say of another, ❝He cannot control his tongue (or he has a loosb

    It's so important that we don't get caught in being with people who have nothing good to talk about. We need to be strong and blunt with people who like gossiping and nitpicking. People with such qualities will bring us down to their level one day.  Honestly I never had the strength to say stop to people until I became a victim. I realised that when you stop the person they may still backbite about you but at least you weren't joining them. The rewards that they achieved are given to you for free. But if you backbite then you are giving your hard earned rewards to them for free too. So be wise and don't let yourself down. Be strong and reject negative people in your life. At the end of the day we only live and die for Allah ﷻ. We only want to please Him.

    A truth that’s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent. ~William Blake, Auguries of Innocence~

From my understanding of Islam the threshold for backbiting is pretty low: it includes anything that you say or lend an ear to, about a person behind their back that they would dislike if they were to hear it, even if it were true. 
Now most of us do our best to control how we speak about others and suppress the urge to say mean things. What I personally find challenging though, is when your loved ones decide that as a good listener and trustworthy person, you are the most apt confidant with whom they can vent about anything and anyone. 😐

Sometimes it can be really difficult to tell someone who is clearly worked up that you don’t want to hear them bash someone or tell you a compromising fact about a certain person. 
Obviously it’s a nuanced thing and you have to weigh up things like giving the other person a safe space to get something out of their system, or when it’s necessary for a greater good etc. But sometimes it’s just not necessary.

Often the only time I feel I can legitimately shut down a line of conversation is when I can hold up my hand and say “sorry, I’m fasting”. The rest of the time I usually look for a good time to suggest changing the topic or shrug passively. One time I even feigned sleep! 😂

I would be interested to hear how other people deal with this kind of thing.

    ProphetMuhammad (s.a.w.w) has said. I can forgive adultery but I cannot forgive 'gheebah' (backbiting). The only one who can forgive you is the one who you backbit of. 
He (s.a.w.w) has said that gheebah affects one's religion faster than Leprosy affects the human body. And Gheebah does away with you good deeds faster than fire does away with wood.

    You can start your Hijra everywhere. As long as you spread it with love to all your fellow moslems and families. But one thing for sure, don't you ever feel holy or superior. Because once you understand what others don't, there's a chance that 'pride' will take over you. And so are pride is the path to destruction. The more we filled our head with knowledge, the wiser and modest we should become. Because no knowledge and guidance are given to you except it is all coming from Allah. "...INDEED, YOUR LORD IS KNOWING AND WISE."

    SubhanAllah! 😔😶 ... yet how many of us are mindful of what we say?! Allah, As-Sami’ (the All-Hearing), says in the Qur’an: “O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful.” [Al-Qur’an, 49:12]

Narrated Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger Muh’ammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Do you know what gheebah (backbiting) is?” They said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He (peace and blessings be upon him) then said, “Saying something about your brother that he dislikes.” It was said, “What if what I say about my brother is true?” He (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “If what you say is true then you have backbitten about him, and if it is not true then you have slandered him.” [Muslim]

    It was narrated from Abu Hurairah(r.a) that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "Do you know what gheebah(backbiting) is?" They said, "Allah and His Messenger knows best." He (ﷺ)said, "saying something about your brother that he dislikes." It was said, "what if what I say about my brother is true?" He said, "If what you say is true then you have backbitten about him, and if it is not true, then you have slandered him." [Muslim] "Gheebah" is prohibited in Islam & considered a Major sin which most of us often take lightly ! Backbiting and dishonoring others has a severe punishment in Islam mentioned in Holy Qur'an and Hadith. 
Narrated from Anas ibn malik(r.a), The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: "When I was taken to the heavens, I passed by some people who had Nails of copper with which they were scratching their faces and chests. I said: 'who are these, O Jibreel?' He said: These are the ones who used to eat the flesh of the people [backbite] and impugn their honour." [Abu Dawood] 
ALLAH Almighty says in the Qur'an - "Do not concern yourself with things about which you have no knowledge. Verily, your Hearing, sight, and heart all of them will be called to account." (Qur'an 17:36) 
May Allah swt protect us from this Major sin and forgive us all. Aameen💝

    Bismillah,
An advice to my self first 💔
Social media are part of our lives and they are both blessings and tests from Allah ‘azza wa jall. You might be able to control yourself and use technology to do good deeds, like sharing Islamic knowledge and keeping ties with family, or you might find yourself drifting away from your good intentions and ending up wasting your time, maybe even backbiting.
Imagine the day your book of deeds will be presented to you and scrolls of Facebook conversations about nothing, Tweets, and Whatsapp messages full of gossip and tale-bearing: [It will be said], “Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant. [Quran, 17:14]
Lesson 1: Don’t narrate every thought.
The Prophet salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: It is enough sin for a man to speak of everything that he hears. [Al-Silsilah al-Saheehah] How often do you share people’s statuses expressing their mood or even post about your own fleeting thoughts? Is it of any benefit to yourself or others? Tip: Ask yourself before posting: is this something that will benefit or be of interest to those who read it?
Lesson 2: Check if it’s true.
How often do you share someone else’s information without even knowing if it’s really true? O you who believe! If a Faasiq (liar — evil person) comes to you with any news, verify it, lest you should harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful for what you have done. [Quran, 49:6] The scholars have advised us to verify matters and not to rush to pass on news until we are sure that it is true, even if the news is good news, because if it becomes apparent that the one who passed it on is mistaken, you risk losing your credibility with others.
Lesson 3: Button on, modesty off? Guard your chastity!
If you openly backbite without shame on Facebook or Twitter, or talk about your sins, you are telling the world who you are.

    Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyah رحمه الله said

Whoever wrongs a person by slandering him, backbiting about him or insulting him, then repents, Allāh will accept his repentance, but if the one who was wronged finds out about that, he has the right to settle the score. But if he slandered him or backbit about him & the person did not hear of that, then there are two views according to the scholars, both of which were narrated from Ahmad, the more correct of which is that he should not tell him that he spoke against him in his absence. It was said that he should rather speak well of him in his absence just as he spoke badly of him in his absence, as al-Hasan al-Basrī رحمه الله said the expiation for gheebah is to pray for forgiveness for the person about whom you backbit. (Majmū’ al-Fatāwā)

But if he slandered him or backbit about him & the person did not hear of that, then there are two views according to the scholars, both of which were narrated from Ahmad, the more correct of which is that he should not tell him that he spoke against him in his absence. It was said that he should rather speak well of him in his absence just as he spoke badly of him in his absence, as al-Hasan al-Basrī رحمه الله said the expiation for gheebah is to pray for forgiveness for the person about whom you backbit. (Majmū’ al-Fatāwā)

    Gheebah (backbiting, gossip) means that a person mentions the faults of his Muslim brother in his absence, which he would not like if he heard about it, when there is no need to mention them.

When I say “mentions the faults of his brother”, this excludes cases when the other person says something to praise or commend him. The scholars agreed that it is haram (impermissible) to talk behind a person’s back for no legitimate purpose. Most of them stated that this is a major sin and that it varies in degree, some kinds being worse than others. The one who backbites about a scholar is not like one who backbites about an ignorant person. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “… neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful” [49:12]

In Saheeh Muslim it is narrated from al-‘Ala ibn ‘Abd al-Rahman from his father from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do you know what gheebah is?” They said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He said, “That you say something about your brother that he dislikes.” He was asked, “What if what I say about my brother is true?” He said, “If what you say is true then you have gossiped about him, and if it is not true then you have slandered him.”

    Praise be to Allah.
The scholars have stated that gheebah is permitted in certain situations:
•
1-Complaining. It is permissible for the one who has been wronged to complain to the ruler or judge and others who have the authority or ability to settle the score with the one who wronged him.
•
2-Seeking help to change evil and bring the sinner back to the right path, so he may say to the one who he hopes is able to do something: “So and so is doing such and such; tell him not to do it.”
•
3-Seeking advice or a fatwa (religious ruling), by saying to the mufti (scholar), “So and so/my father/my brother has wronged me by doing such and such, does he have the right to do that? How can I solve this problem and ward off his harm from me?”
•
4-Warning the Muslims of someone’s evil, such as highlighting the weakness of some reporters or witnesses or authors. That also includes seeing someone buying faulty goods, or someone keeping company with one who is a thief or adulterer, or giving a female relative of his to such a man in marriage, and the like. You should tell them about that by way of sincere advice, not with the aim of causing harm and spreading mischief.
•
5-If a person openly commits evil or follows bid’ah (innovation), such as drinking alcohol and seizing people’s wealth unlawfully, it is permissible to speak of what he is doing openly, but it is not permissible to speak against him any other way, unless it is for another reason.
•
6-For identification, if someone is known by a nickname such as the dim-sighted one, or the blind man or the one-eyed or the lame one, it is permissible to identify him as such, but it is haraam (impermissible) to mention that by way of belittling him, and if it is possible to identify him in some other way, that is better. ⬇️continue in the comment section ⬇️

Everyone who does any kind of backbiting, has to repent and pray for forgiveness, and that is between him and Allah. If he knows that any of his words reached the person about whom he was speaking, then he should go to him and ask him to forgive him. But if he does not know, then he should not tell him; rather he should pray for forgiveness for him and make du’a (supplication) for him, and speak well of him in his absence just as he spoke against him. Similarly, if he knows that telling him will provoke more enmity, then it is sufficient to make du’a for him, speak well of him and pray for forgiveness for him.

    A truth that’s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent. ~William Blake, Auguries of Innocence~

From my understanding of Islam the threshold for backbiting is pretty low: it includes anything that you say or lend an ear to, about a person behind their back that they would dislike if they were to hear it, even if it were true. 
Now most of us do our best to control how we speak about others and suppress the urge to say mean things. What I personally find challenging though, is when your loved ones decide that as a good listener and trustworthy person, you are the most apt confidant with whom they can vent about anything and anyone. 😐

Sometimes it can be really difficult to tell someone who is clearly worked up that you don’t want to hear them bash someone or tell you a compromising fact about a certain person. 
Obviously it’s a nuanced thing and you have to weigh up things like giving the other person a safe space to get something out of their system, or when it’s necessary for a greater good etc. But sometimes it’s just not necessary.

Often the only time I feel I can legitimately shut down a line of conversation is when I can hold up my hand and say “sorry, I’m fasting”. The rest of the time I usually look for a good time to suggest changing the topic or shrug passively. One time I even feigned sleep! 😂

I would be interested to hear how other people deal with this kind of thing.

    Also, when a person come to know that his/her friend or a relative has talked this about him/her, he/she will never respect you nor likes to talk with you and please admit your fault. After doing all this never expect that person to call you pleasantly,obviously he/she will get mad, it your duty to go to him/her and Appologize to make huffiness go away as you are not going to be down in status after Appology. So, i request my followers to resolute today and move ahead in Appologizing.If you know that a person has this bad habbit or quality, go and help him/her to get rid of his/het bad habbit instead of doing backbackiting. Because this will only breed hate in many people against that innocent person and in a long run will breed hate between him/her and society. So do a favour on your society and breed love and if not for the sake of love then for yourself to be happy in this world and hereafter.

    #Backbiting (#Gheebah) and it’s Expiation! 
The Muslim has to guard his tongue and avoid things that have been forbidden. 
Among these forbidden things which people often take lightly are gheebah (backbiting), buhtan (#slander) and nameemah (malicious #gossip) 
Gheebah or backbiting means speaking about a Muslim in his absence and saying things that he would not like to have spread around or mentioned. 
Buhtan or slander means saying things about a Muslim that are not true, or in other words telling lies about him. Nameemah or malicious gossip means telling one person what another said in order to cause trouble between them. 
There is a great deal of evidence to show that these actions are haram (impermissible). It will suffice for us to mention just a few of them in order to demonstrate that they are haram. 
Allah (The Most High) says: ❝Neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful.❞
[Quran 49:12] 
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: ❝Do you know what gheebah (backbiting) is?❞ They said, ❝Allah and His Messenger know best.❞ He said, ❝Saying something about your brother that he dislikes.❞ It was said, ❝What if what I say about my brother is true?❞ He said, ❝If what you say is true then you have backbitten about him, and if it is not true, then you have slandered him.❞ [Muslim]
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas (رضي الله عنه) said: 
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) passed by two graves and said; ❝They are being punished, but they are not being punished for anything that was difficult to avoid. 
One of them used to walk about spreading malicious gossip (nameemah), and the other used not to take precautions to avoid getting urine on himself when he urinated.❞
Then he called for a green branch, which he split in two and planted a piece on each grave, and said; ❝May their torment be reduced so long as these do not dry out.❞

    So, I've been thinking for so long to write on this too. If we take an imaginary trip through our country,we shall be thrilled by 95% of people mainly ladies backiting about walkby peeps in a mall. How were their dressing, way of talking, facial features and many more. If these ladies can do that then talking about of our relatives is not a big deal, Not at all. And most of you must be agreed with me as we all know what are the conversations among our moms, khalas, phuphos and chachis whenever they meet up. Not only this, i have met those mothers who not even forgive their children in this regard and believe me I've faced it myself. After doing all this, when siblings grewup and there comes their families and property Dealings, parents then rant about their upbringing and said "what we have not given to them that they are doing this, hating each other". Neither such ladies and men will never accept that it was their fault.

    Today I'm  going to ask you to do something difficult. Very difficult. Some might say impossible…. In fact we’re fairly sure 90% of people reading this won’t be able to do this. Hopefully we’re wrong. And Allah knows best.

Backbiting is a MAJOR sin and every single person reading this message has probably at some point in their life backbitten someone, so firstly let’s quickly address the definition of backbiting from the greatest source we have.

Did you know backbiting is more of a sin than adultery. You know why? When you commit adultery you can ask Allah for forgiveness and Allah can forgive you but when you backbite someone Allah cannot forgive you unless the person you spoke ill of forgives you first.

The Prophet once gave counsel to Abu Dharr, saying: O Abu Dharr! Beware of backbiting, for backbiting is graver than adultery. Abu Dharr (r) said: Why is that so, O Messenger of Allah? He (s) replied: That is because when a man commits adultery and then repents to God, God accepts his repentance. However, backbiting is not forgiven until forgiven by its victim.

Imagine the alternative? You’re now standing in front of Allah and your account is about to begin. You look to your right and you feel happy looking at all your good deeds. Suddenly your good deeds start vanishing and you’re panicking. The good deeds are going to all the people you have backbitten against, your father, brother, sister, mother, wife, friend, cousin, work colleague.

    #Islam has legislated a number of rules that a #Muslim should abide by when speaking to others. A Muslim must always remember, without a doubt, that he will account for every good and bad thing that he says. He will be rewarded for his good words, and he will be punished for every bad word that he says. Allah (swt) says in surat Quaaf, what can be translated as, “Not a word does he utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it) .” (Verse 18)

The #Messenger (Saw) warned us about the seriousness of speaking. The #prophet said, in an authentic hadith reported by Imams At-Tirmithi and Ibn-Majah, that, “A person may say a word that is pleasing to #Allah (Swt) and he may not think much of it, but Allah (Swt) will, (because of that word), bestow his pleasure upon him on the Day of Judgment, and a person may say a word that is displeasing to Allah (swt), and he may not think much of it, but Allah will have, (because of that word) put his wrath and anger on him on the Day of Judgment.”

Speaking can be dangerous. So, we should control it within the limits of Islam, guided by Allah (swt) and His Messenger #Muhammad (saw)
🌸
Here are some of the ways that we can control our speaking:
🌸
 1.) We should speak only if we our speech will be good and beneficial. We should remember the famous saying, “If you do not have anything good to say, don't say anything at all.” Imams Bukhari and Muslim reported that the prophet (saw) said, “Whosoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him say good or remain silent.”
🌸
2.) We should be truthful when we speak and refrain from lying: The believer should always tell the truth, and he should never lie even if when he is joking around. Imams Bukhari and Muslim reported that the prophet (saw) said, "You must speak the truth for the truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise. One, who always speaks the truth and means the truth, is recorded as truthful with Allah (swt). Keep away from the lie for the lie leads to evil and evil leads to the #Hell Fire and one who continually tells a lie and intends to lie is recorded with Allah as a liar.”

    #Islam has legislated a number of rules that a #Muslim should abide by when speaking to others. A Muslim must always remember, without a doubt, that he will account for every good and bad thing that he says. He will be rewarded for his good words, and he will be punished for every bad word that he says. Allah (swt) says in surat Quaaf, what can be translated as, “Not a word does he utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it) .” (Verse 18)
