A Clarification Concerning the Praiseworthy and Blameworthy Backbiting

Shaykh Abū ʿAmmār Yāsir al-ʿAtāwī al-Atharī

A timely foundational explanation of the oft-misunderstood concept of backbiting (al-ghībah). This excellent treatise covers evidence from the Qurʾān, the Sunnah and the statements of the Salaf concerning the ḥarām and ḥalāl types of backbiting, as well as the ḥalāl and ḥarām types of namīmah (tale carrying).

Saʿīd Abū Zayd al-Anṣārī al-Nahawī, ‘Shuʿbah (d. AH 160) came to us upon a rainy day and said, ‘Today is not a day for ḥadīth, today is a day for backbiting. Let us come together and backbite the liars.” Refer to al-Kifāyah (no. 91) of al-Khatīb al-Baghdādī.
