How is your situation when someone back bites you or you are present when someone else is being backed, bitten? Well, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one time he overheard two people talking, one person said to the other, look at so on. So and he's talking, talk negative about that person backbiting about that brother, the prophets of Allah who I use and did not do anything immediately, but he heard them. Then he walked away after some time, he said, Enough, wouldn't Wafula Where is so and so and so on. So the two people that were indulged in the backbiting so they said, here we are also Allah. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, you see this dead
disgusting donkey there was a dead disgusting donkey, filled with flies was nasty smells pretty bad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them for Kula both of you eat from it. So they said, Yeah, rasool Allah Who would eat something like that. It's pretty disgusting. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the following what you guys said about your brother is far more disgusting and disturbing than eating this dead filthy donkey. Brothers and sisters. This is how serious this matter is. Now just to clarify something. This hadith is classified as authentic by me headband and weak by Al Benny and others. However, there's numerous narrations that support the
aspect of equivalence, of backbiting with eating the flesh of human beings. Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in authentic narration. He says when I was ascending the Mirage trip, he said, I saw people with nails made out of copper. They were scratching their faces and their chests. So I asked Jabril the Ajibade Who are these people, the ones that are scratching their faces and their chests? He said, These are the ones that eat the flesh of human beings do they really eat the flesh of human beings? What is meant is these are the people that backbite May Allah protect us era but Allah mean, and you have to appreciate how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ready for this?
He said both of you eat from it. Not just the one who back bid. But the one who heard but didn't do anything about it. Did not defend did not change the conversation did not stop him whatsoever. They are as guilty. Brothers and sisters Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not participate in backbiting. And Allah subhana wa says in the Quran and he lived by this verse, Allah says, well Yaga baba, baba, do not back bite one another. Are you headbutt Hadoken with any one of you love, and yet Kula Mahi he made that for you to eat the flesh of your own brother. Do you like that? By the way, Allah answers the question. He says, Forget it to move Allah says you hate it. Then Allah says fear
Allah subhanho wa Taala with duckula Fear Allah, Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. So may Allah allow us to be protected from backbiting. What would you do? If you see someone backbiting May Allah make it easy for you to stop them defend the one being back button, change the topic but bottom line do not participate? May Allah make it easy was salam aleikum
