In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Asalamu Alaikum everyone, so i was watching a arabic t.v series the other day and there were two girls gossiping about another girl in their college, and then later on, in another t.v series a group of friends were being very judgmental to another friend, and they thought the worst of his actions rather than thinking there may be another side of the story, so i was thinking how that always happens in real life, from Muslims, and non-Muslims alike, and i know that some of us don't mean to do it, and find ourselves saying something without meaning to, or automatically thinking the worst, but the sad thing is if our thoughts were on display, meaning that anything you think or say everyone can hear we would be so much more careful.
But what about Allah swt.
Doesn't he matter?
Shouldn't he be all that matters?
subhanAllah, sometimes we forget that Allah is always there watching us and that we should be thinking the best of others, and never gossip, or backbite.
Just something to think about.
Just a reminder.
To myself before anyone else.
"Backbiting is to say something about someone they wouldn't like said about them....If what bad you said about them is true, then you have backbited and if it is false then you have slandered them." [MUSLIM]
