Backbiting is more severe [in sin] than [having an outstanding] loan.
Indeed, you are unable to please all of the people, so rectify that which is between you and Allaah and don’t concern yourself with [what] the people [may think or say].
[I am] a woman who spends a lot of time in gatherings with [other] women, and a lot of the time in these gatherings there is backbiting and mockery [of others].
I often sit in the company of other women, and often is the case that there is backbiting in these gatherings. And I feel very agitated by this, and dislike it, however, I am unable to actually do anything about it; I can’t even leave the gathering.
