How do I repent from gossiping?
I've come to love salatu salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that of the worst kind of character trait character traits that a human being can have Muslim or non is that they speak about other people without them given the opportunity to defend themselves. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he defined it by saying the Kuru kahakai Maya Quran the hadith of women Muslim is that you speak ill of your brother, your your sister in a way that they would hate if they were standing there, and therefore gossiping and speaking about someone outside their presence is one of the lowly character traits that all societies and as a
universal value is rejected. The second thing that's important is that if you have done that, which is natural, all of us at some point in time we've been dismissive of someone, even the blessing lady, Chateau de la Juana, she made a small mistake is recorded by Lima Muslim, she was sitting with the prophets I send them she saw Sophia into a or the Allahu anhu or LA chat a little bit of jealousy with her and she said to the prophet SAW Selim era sola la isla Sophia Hello How can I work at the Messenger of Allah look at something a look oh shorty is the prophets. I send them space darkened with anger. And he said to her, yeah, Nikki quality Kelly Metallo musi jet FEMA in Baja
dilemma the jet. Oh, he just spoke a word that if it was to be dipped in an ocean, it would pollute it. You know, it's a dismissive comment. It's a sorry, a sarcastic comment about someone else. It's a descriptive comment about someone else, that if they heard it, they wouldn't be happy. That's not even entirely sharing other people's personal details, things that they're ashamed of thing that they don't want other people to know. So think of the importance of guarding people's privacy. Think of the importance of sheltering people hoping that Allah will shelter us the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says to us that the one who hides the mistakes of a person doesn't broadcast
their errors that they're seeking and struggling with, from other people, then Allah will shelter their error and shelter them from their errors on the day of judgment and in their public life. How do we overcome it? Well, number one, be careful with your tongue qu falaka has the profit system will either have the Allahu anhu, the hadith of alma mater, maybe I warn you about this tongue, because its consequence, its harvest on the Day of Judgment shall bring people to ruin. Think of what you say, number two, if you've made that mistake, and men for it. So go back and say to the people who you shared that use with, I really shouldn't have spoken like that. Please don't share it
with other people. I made a mistake. And I asked a lot to forgive me. amend for it. Number Number three, in addition is to add something good in place of something ruinous that you have said, say Actually, I shouldn't have said that. Really what I know about this brother, what I know about this sister is this, this and this and this and compensate for the mistake by sharing valuable information. Number four, if what you have said was a fatal injury statement. I think it's entirely right for you to let the person know that you shared something that they didn't want people to know about that they didn't expect to hear from other people knowing about it that has come out of your
tongue. Sometimes you need to say and be and to man up for lack of better words and say I'm sorry, forgive me. I shouldn't have misspoke. I shouldn't have said that about you. But I've gone back and I've clarified it, I asked you about a lot.
