Short Reminder: Woe to every slanderer and backbiter


Short Reminder: Woe to every slanderer and backbiter | Islamic Reasoning | Iftikhar Islam

Woe to every slanderer and backbiter... This is how Surah Humazah (Surah 104) starts with a kind of a curse to the one who slander and backbite. He do so because of the pride of the wealth he has. He collects it and count it again and again as if his wealth make him last forever.

This is a person who is thrown in the hell fire and crushed into pieces. The fire will be covered all over his heart for the things he used to do on this earth because of the pride of the wealth he had.

Backbiting itself is a sin, it is as if a person has eaten the flesh of his dear brother (Quran 49:12) and backbiting out of pride of the wealth one possess is a greater sin as mentioned in this Surah (i.e. Surah Humazah). Spending in the way of Allah reaps benefit that multiplies seven hundred times (as mentioned in Quran 2:261).

Now it’s up to you whether you have pride of the wealth Allah has provided you or spend it in the way of Allah – choose wisely.
