what is backbiting in islam, and what is the punishment for backbiting?


"Today's society is quite skilled at backbiting, but many are unaware of the severity of the penalty. Today, everyone needs to be aware of this. We will know backbiting relationships."


Definition of backbiting: "backbiting" means to mention the fault of a person to another person unnecessarily. Ibn al-Ashir said: "Slander is to mention something to a person in his absence that he dislikes, even though it exists in him". These definitions are mainly taken from hadith. The Prophet (peace be upon him) introduced backbiting and said, "Backbiting is describing the behavior of your brother, which he knows is bad."


Consequences of backbiting: Allah Ta'ala says, 'None of you should backbite anyone; does any of you want him to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You hate it. [Surah Hujurat, 12] This verse proves that backbiting is like eating the flesh of a dead person.


Backbiting is the cause of punishment in hell. - Rasulullah (SAW) reported: "I passed by some persons during the Miraj who were ripping their cheeks and chests with their brass-nailed hands. I asked Gabriel, Who are these? He said, "These are the ones who used to eat human flesh and destroy their dignity."


Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud (RA) said: (Once, we were near the Prophet." In this situation, a person got up and left. One criticized him after his departure. Then the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to him, "Grill your teeth." The man said, For what reason will the teeth be khilal? I did not eat any meat. Then he said, Surely you have eaten the flesh of your brother, i.e., you have slandered.


Backbiting is punishable in the grave.


Once the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was passing by two graves, suddenly he stopped and said, 'These two grave dwellers are being punished. But they are not being punished for any major crime, which makes it easy for them to survive. One of them is being punished for cheating, and the other is being punished for being careless about urination. (Do not avoid splashing urine.) Another hadith mentions gossiping instead of gossiping.

  Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi (Hadith Sahih)

After the above discussion, it was immediately understood that backbiting is completely haram.

May Allah Ta'ala grant us all Tawfeek to save us from backbiting. Amen


15 strategies to control backbiting!

  1.  Practice not sleeping after Fajr. Kailula (a light afternoon nap) can be done if needed.
  2. Make a habit of eating at least three times a day. Habijabi food, such as fast food and street food, cannot be eaten between breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Apples and dates might satisfy your hunger.
  3. Consume a little less food per meal than you think you need.
  4. Avoid talking unnecessarily. Before making any comments, think about it once you say that there is no loss. What must be said? If the answer is no, there is no need to say that.
  5. Recite the morning and evening Zikir-Azkar.
  6. Make a habit of performing Ishraq prayer.
  7. Practice reading the Quran regularly every day. There may be 1 ruku to 1 para—any amount.
  8. Reduce the amount of sleep.
  9. Practice some exercise after Fajr. If you can't do anything else, jog for 15-20 minutes, take a bath, and practice Ishraq prayer.
  10. Keep your eyes down. If not, try your best to avoid those places.
  11. Less use of Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter (social media).
  12. Take one target daily of Hifz. It can also be one verse per day, but the target must be met. It is very, very important.
  13. Avoid eating after a large meal, particularly at night.
  14. Before going to bed at night, perform ablution, perform two rakat nafal salat, and keep reciting Astagfirullah until you fall asleep.
  15. Practice Tahajjud Salat regularly. Inshallah, Rabbe Karim will calm your heart.

May Allah Ta'ala grant us all the ability to act on every word. Amen


Paradise for six works


"Ubdah Ibn Samit (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

Be sure that you achieve the six virtues among yourselves; I will be surety for you."


  • Speak the truth when speaking;
  • Promise to fulfill it;
  • If a deposit is placed with you, he will collect the deposit.
  • will guard the place of shame;
  • Keep the vision restrained;
  • Keep your hands from iniquity.



✓ Ahmad, 22757

✓ Sahihul Jame, 1098


Think about how much Allah Subhanahu wa Tayala loves us. He has sent a prophet of mercy (pbuh) to this world who loves his ummah so much. Because of his love, he told the believing servants how easy and simple it was to become residents of paradise with him. If he did not give this direction, would we ever be able to think about paradise? He told us the way to do deeds, but we have to do our own deeds. In life, if we really love Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him), then we will definitely try to follow their instructions to the letter. Let's prepare to be residents of Jannah, ignoring everything. Inshallah, we will see each other in the world of paradise, by the grace of Allah.

May Allah Almighty grant us all entry into Jannah. Amen
