I have always wondered why we feel more “healthy”, cheerful and gay – all at once- after having gossiped about someone. Backbiting behind their backs. Laughing and throwing jabs at them. As if we deserve to talk about them. As if Allah has permitted us – providing no limits and boundries – to talk about them as we like, slaining and creating distrust among each other.
I paced to search from the divine manuscript in my mind and found the following verse:
“O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.”
(Suratul Hujraat: 12)
Oh. The verse says we have eaten the raw fresh bloody flesh every time we volunteer to gossip.
Pretty justifiable, is not it?
Reflecting upon the ayah above I have come to the conclusion that since we “eat their raw bloody flesh” we hence get their protein and minerals that we get SO “energised” !
I do not like to eat their flesh, do you?
