Backbiting and gossiping about the faults of others

Reference: Tafseer Soorah al-Hujuraat – v1, p52

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

…and know that if you spread the faults of your brother, then certainly Allaah will place someone over you who will spread your faults – as a penalty and in accordance [with what you yourself have done to your brother].

Do not think [for a moment] that Allaah is negligent about what the oppressors do, rather He will place someone over him who will deal with him just as he deals with the people.
