The most obscene of gossipmongers


Shaykh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee said:

My advice to every student of knowledge in every country is to fear Allaah, and remember [the hadeeth of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)]:

«Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him speak good or remain silent.» [al-Bukhaaree, no.6136 and Muslim, no.47]

So beware of causing discord between the scholars, and do not be a gossipmonger, for [indeed] the most obscene of gossipmongers is the one who damages [the relationships] between the scholars.

And if you are unable to utter a word [that will bring about] unity, then beware of uttering a word [that will cause] disunity.

And adhere to good behaviour with the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah in your country and elsewhere.
