  23. 23. As Muslims, we are to hold all our brothers and sisters withequal respect, without harbouring any ill-thoughts concerning them.Their honour and dignity has to be safeguarded, as Islam guaranteesit.But how often, our attitude towards our brother or sister wouldeasily be affected because of news that is maliciously disseminatedto disparage him/her.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  24. 24. Whether, in the first place, is it right or wrong to spread suchnews, or whether story true or lies, seemed unimportant - becausewe would have allowed the poison to affect our opinion of theperson concerned.+How easily we give credence to it. We are quick to accuse, eventhough we may not be uttering it? The honour we held for ourbrother/sister quickly dissipate, and every actions done by him/heris scrutinised as though to implicate or rather with a view to confirmwhat we had already concluded in our minds. In fact we havealready judged him/her unjustly.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  25. 25. Seldom, if ever, do we seek to verify from the person concerned,but we feel satisfied just with this news, although one-sided,unverified, and we shamelessly feel no qualms about actingprejudicially.Sometimes, we began to behave pretentiously in front of thepoor brother/sister as though we are not aware of the news. Whypretend? .... it is because we felt ashamed for ourselves for notdefending his/her honour in his/her absence.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  26. 26. Spreading news negatively about somebody to others is acowardly act! To condone it, would be to implicate oneself with thissame guilt as the one who started it. Rumour-mongering (spreadinguntruth about others) is indeed, not only a very dangerous anddespicable social ill, it is amongst the list of forbidden acts called"kaba-ir" (major sins).Alas for us who may inadvertently been exposed to these, wemust guard ourselves from believing in it, and we must not allowsuch unverified assertion to draw us into sinning against ourbrother/sister concerned.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  27. 27. Yet why do our nafs (desire or self) likes or is inclines to listen tosuch news concerning others? News of scandals and juicy gossipsof an acquaintance is welcomed or even sought. Perhaps we aremerely pampering to our self-conceit which wants assurance of itsown ‘superiority over others; that feeling of "holier than thou!"attitude which gives us satisfaction.Thus our pre-occupation with the alleged "faults" of others,makes us forget that we are the ones that is at fault, nay, clearly theones who are guilty of a grave sin.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  28. 28. In this day and age, with information technology advancing anddissemination of news becoming easy, the pertinent moral questionof - "is spreading negativity (even, if it is true) of a person to thegeneral public, a sin or not?" is never even asked by Muslims!Those who are without religion may use ‘press-freedom’ orpublic interest, as justification - but can Muslims use this excuseWhat does Islam has to say regarding this?All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

Tale-bearing is often a characteristic of those inclined to iniquityTale-bearing is often a characteristic of those inclined to iniquity((faasiqfaasiq) precisely because the very act of spreading unsubstantiated) precisely because the very act of spreading unsubstantiatedrumours affecting the reputations of other persons itself, is arumours affecting the reputations of other persons itself, is aspiritual offence - albeit a grave & serious one.spiritual offence - albeit a grave & serious one.Such person do not have any qualms to harm others, yet they doSuch person do not have any qualms to harm others, yet they donot dare to confront directly those whom they harbour ill-will.

  33. 33. If we encounter such tale-bearers, we should hold to doubtingthem unless with unequivocal & substantiated proof; and thusmust not allow any of what they convey concerning other peopleto be disseminated. This should stop with us. Yet, many of us evenbecame the very channel for many unverified news about othersto spread!Especially today in the virtual internet world where suchforward-ings seems so easy on a mere click. Some have noqualms to even post on their websites such malicious tales,photos, etc. casting aspersion upon people who may be unawareof it or are unable to respond or defend themselves .All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  34. 34. Those guilty of such despicable act should stop and seekreparation, if not they are actually indulging, constantly andrepeatedly in this sin of defamation from the time they put it upfor others to access. They are in fact slandering continuouslywithout having to even speak. They are in fact chalking up sins, ata tremendous pace daily - nay, each time whenever there arepeople reading their postings and harbouring negative thoughts onthe person being maligned.And they think Allah s.w.t. will not judge them - that their bookof record is not constantly being kept updated? Ever wonder howwould such wrong done could ever be undone?! Yet, it persists!All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  35. 35. There are some who uses absurd qualifying phrase tosomewhat justify their behaviour, like "I know this is not confirm,but do you know that so-and-so...."; or "actually I am not supposeto tell anyone but,...." etc. If others were to do the same to us, casta slur upon our reputations, we would not have liked it, yet, whyarent we careful when our own indulgence affect the reputationsof our other brothers/sisters?Remember the ruling (hukm) against those who slander againstthe honour of another brother/sister is indeed considered a graveoppression - a "defamation" - against them. And they would havea strong claim against those who wronged them by turning toAllah.All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  42. 42. Many of us, shamelessly entertain the thought that we areperfect. Some even seek out Western motivational books &courses that promote enhancement of their super-ego.Thus their attitude towards others will be affected by thisdelusion, accentuated by seeing the faults in others, not inthemselves.
