[When] I am in some gatherings, there are some people who are influenced by some of the misguided callers [to Islaam] – whom the scholars have warned against…
Backbiting and mocking others in a gathering
[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].
Attending a gathering where reprehensible acts are taking place
Is it prohibited for a person to remain in a place where reprehensible acts are taking place?
Sitting in gatherings where backbiting takes place
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.
Avoid gatherings of backbiting and slander
When you have prayed, why do you not sit with us?
There is a share for Shaytaan
If a gathering extends [beyond what is necessary], then there is a share in it for Shaytaan.
