Question ID: 31779

Assalamu alikum,

Respected Mufti Sahab, I know that backbiting is a grave sin. So I want to know if someone has done backbiting then by just doing sincere taubah the sin will be eradicated from the amaal namah or for this grave sin to be abolished one has to ask forgiveness from the person, of whom one has done backbiting.

2) If someone speaks ill or back bites of the person who is dead, will this be counted as backbiting. If yes, then how to rectify ones mistake as he is no more in this world, so that one may go to him or her and ask for forgiveness,

Jazzak Allah Khair!

1) Best to seek forgiveness from the person injured by backbiting.

2) Make sincere Taubah and Istikhfaar and make Du'aa and Isal-e-Sawaab for the one whom you spoke ill of.
