The following is a commercial aired in the Middle East regarding backbiting. Scary, and very realistic.
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 Allâh. Verily, Allâh is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful. [Surah Hujuraat / Ayah 12]
May Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) guide us away from that which He hates and guide us towards that which He loves. Wa salillah humma ala sayyidina Muhammad. Ameen. 😥
