Ridicule A Beloved
O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one’s] faith. And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers. [Al Hujaraat:11]
Our world would be a better place if we could live according to these rules. So many times when I am with people the conversation turns towards what Iqra and Sara were wearing at the wedding and how their hair looked bad. This has always felt wrong to me but after reading this verse I understand why it is so wrong. If people are backbiting or talking bad about someone how do we know what Allah (swt) thinks about that person?
Can we even imagine if that person is beloved to Allah (swt) and we are ridiculing them or talking about them? This thought scares me so the best is to remain silent about what is none of our business.

Below is a video that demonstrates what is actually happening when we are backbiting:
