Backbiting is a kind of politics, in every religion we'll find a lot of sayings about backbiting. Backbiting is prohibited in every religion.


The definition of backbiting is that we talk about the person in their absence, if we looked around! We'll find a lot of examples about the backbiting, whether it's an office, school, hospital and even in our relations too.
In our society, backbiting is not creating a healthy effect in an environment, if we're working as a commentator's the one person is always speaking of some bad things about another commits whose effect on their reputation; these things create their reputation bad in the market.
In an offices we're always noticed one thing that some persons always want to favorite list of the head of the department, if they are trying to do these things by their efficient work is not only good for them but is good for all of their staff, but so sad! For these persons who do these things by a backbiting of their other staff member. They are always spoken bad things about the work of other staff, they never won't that another staff member comes close to the head of dept.
These same things are present in school staff, hospital staff and our family members, you always find one or maybe two or three who always enjoy talking about the other family members, they discussed their family issues to another; make embarrassed for others.
Sometimes our friends are also starting backbiting. They called us that they are our friends, but actually they are not, they are close to us and trying to know our weakness and used these weaknesses against us as a backbiting. These things are very dangerous for us.
Backbiting is actually developing the bad feelings for each other; I think is so true! That backbiting is an evil feeling. We all are trying to overcome this feeling in our heart, we're trying to think always good for others and always pray to our God to protect us in such kind of evil feelings, which make our image bad in society.

Backbiting In The Light Of Different Religions

Every religion is against the backbiting. In the Baha'i Faith, Christian and Islamic doctrine, backbiting is considered a sin. The Baha'i leaders condemned it as the worst of sins as it destroyed the 'life of the soul'. Thomas Aquinas classified it as a venial sin, being commonly found in all mankind, but considered it to be the gravest sin that one could commit against one's neighbor. Islam considers it to be a major sin and the Qur'an compares it to the abhorrent act of eating the flesh of one's dead brother. In Buddhism, backbiting goes against the ideal of right speech.

Backbiting In Islam

In Islam backbiting is considered as a sin. In Islam, there is no place of backbiting and such kind of other behavior, Islam never liked those peoples who involved in backbiting.

Being a Muslim it's a big responsibility for us that we follow the saying of the Quran and the way of God; always speak truth and avoid the backbiting, but this rule are not only for Muslims but for every person who live in this world and a part of this society have a great responsibility to finish this evil act backbiting; of this super power create a big problem in third world countries.

(Quran 24: 12-15).

Quote About Backbiting In A Bible: -
Psalms 15:1-3
O LORD, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart. He does not slander with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
