Exceptions to Backbiting

There are few exceptions to backbiting, that the scholars have classified, among them …..


The Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam - said, “Do not nurse a grudge (against a Muslim) and do not outbid him for raising the price and do not nurse aversion (strong dislike) or enmity and do not enter into a transaction when others have entered into that transaction and be as fellow-brothers and servants of Allaah. A Muslim is the brother of another, he neither betrays (or deceives him), nor humiliates him, nor looks down upon him. Piety is here (and while saying so) he pointed towards his chest three times. All things of a Muslims are inviolable for his brother in faith, his blood, his wealth and his honour.”

Saheeh al-Muslim (4/6219), part of the wording bing that of Sunan Abu Dawood (3/4864)
He - Sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam - also said, “No (Muslim) man will desert a man who is a Muslim in a place where his respect may be violated and his honour aspered without Allaah deserting him in a place where he wishes help; and no (Muslim) man who will help a Muslim in a place where is honour may be aspered and his respect violated without Allaah helping him in a place where he wishes his help.”
Sunan Abu Dawood (3/4866) and and authenticated by Sheikh al-Albani in  Saheeh Jaami’ Sagheer.
