This very idea is the real basis of the social tribulation and the failure of democratic capitalism in bringing about man's happiness and safeguarding his dignity.

Why People Backbite?

Why People Backbite?

Repenting for Backbiting

Repenting for Backbiting

Be informed that it is mandatory on the backbiter to repent, regret and feel sorry for what he has done so he may get himself out of Alla-h Almighty exacting on him what he deserves. After that, he must seek forgiveness of the person whom he had backbitten, perhaps he will forgive him and get him out of his wrongdoing. He ought to seek his forgiveness while he is sorrowful, regretful about what he had done, for a pretentious person may seek forgiveness just to feign piety while inwardly he is not regretful at all, thus he adds another sin.
