Much has been written about the subject of Gheebat (backbiting). The Ulama and other scholars continue to condemn this contagious ailment that is rife among all walks of life. The ongoing condemnation of this scourge in society is exactly the reason why so much is spoken about it and why so much is written about this plague from time to time.
What is termed as Huqooq-ul –‘Ibaad, (the rights of others), is perhaps the most integral component of a human being’s principle beliefs, after fulfilling the rights of Allah (Tabaraka wa Ta’ala) --- (Huqooq-ul-Allah). Unfortunately, many people are unmindful and negligent of the rights of others.
Allah Ta’ala loves every Muslim --- more especially, because he has declared and unwaveringly believes in the Oneness of Allah Ta’ala (Wahdãniyat). An individual who has resolutely embraced belief in Allah (Azza wa Jalla) as the only One Being worthy of worship --- i.e. he has firm faith (Īmãn) on the Singularity and Uniqueness of the Creator (Jalla Jalãluhu) (Tawheed) --- and has taken Shadah, is better than everything in the court of Allah (Tabaraka wa Ta’ala).
The person who speaks with a “two-tongued” and a “double-dealing” approach --- regularly contradicts himself is in effect a “deceitful back-stabber”. Convincingly, he makes a point, takes an oath on it, then suddenly he makes an about-turn and denies all that he had mentioned.
1. Allāh ta‘ālā has taken oath of ten nights in Sūrah Al-Fajr. According to the majority of the commentators of Qur’ān, the nights are those of the (first) ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.
The relentless waves of tests, trials and tribulations (fitna) are ruthlessly razing the Ummah to the ground. The unyielding deluges of trials strike without warning and before you know it, the cruel avalanche has already struck.
It is reported that Rasulullah (Salallahu Alaihi wa Salam) said to Hazrat ‘Aisha (R): “On this night (15 Shaban) read this dua and teach it to others. Jibra’eel u taught this dua to me.”
