I hate this type of people...

49: 12.
O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much4931 (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead4932 brother? Nay, ye would abhor it...But fear Allah. For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

Yusuf Ali commentary

4931. Most kinds of suspicion are baseless and to be avoided, and some are crimes in themselves: for they do cruel injustice to innocent men and women. Spying, or enquiring too curiously into other people's affairs, means either idle curiosity, and is therefore futile, or suspicion carried a stage further, which almost amounts to sin. Back-biting also is a brood of the same genus. It may be either futile but all the same mischievous, or it may be poisoned with malice, in which case it is a sin added to sin.

No one would like even to think of such an abomination as eating the flesh of his brother. But when the brother is dead, and the flesh is carrion, abomination is added to abomination. In the same way we are asked to refrain from hurting people's feelings when they are present; how much worse is it when we say things, true or false, when they are absent!

May Allah forgive your sins and mine if we happened to do the same action.
A reminder Ahong, be careful of your words. I pray not to be a part of any of this (red colour).


  1. salam...

    for you, do you think we can believe our instinct? Trump also trust his instinct in certain situations..

    how about if the instinct smells bad, is it also a suspicious?


  2. Assalamualaikum Wrt. Wbt.

    For me, I rare trust my instict because it could be right and it could be wrong. In this sense, instict for me is the things that I feel or some prediction I made ahead of time with the limited knowledge that I have at that time. So the best is not to jump to conclusion.

    If we suspect that something is wrong, the best thing to do is to rectify it with the right person. Example, I had an instict that Mr A is stealing. This could be because I heard it from someone else. If I continue believing it based on my personal instict or because I heard it from someone else, I might be doing 'fitnah'.

    The best way is to prove wether Mr A is been stealing or not by asking him personally. Ask the person who told you how they know Mr A is stealing.

    This was no fitnah happened.

    If its just an instict and we did not say it or tell it to other people, maybe its ok but as fellow Muslim, I will chose to not be prejudice against any bad news of anyone until its provenn so.

    Even if its proven, we should not say these things openly. Its easier for Allah to forgive...
