Woe to a Person Who Preoccupies Him (or Herself) In Slander and Backbiting!

Allaah (The Most high) said:

وَيْلٌ لِّكُلِّ هُمَزَةٍ لُّمَزَةٍ


[وَيْلٌ –Woe]; meaning, loss and destruction. And it is said [that it means] a valley in Jahannam.

[لِّكُلِّ هُمَزَةٍ لُّمَزَةٍ – to every slanderer and backbiter]; this is his preoccupation and practice (or habit), slander and backbiting -violating the honour of the people, speaking ill of them and defaming them.  Slandering by way of speech and backbiting by way of action through indication (or gesturing). [End of Quote (Ref 1)]

Qaadhi Iyaad (rahimahullaah) stated that the word [وَيْلٌ –Woe]  carries some of the following meanings: [a] It is used whilst referring to one who has fallen into destruction. [b] It is used whilst referring to one who deserves destruction. [c] It is used to refer to destruction itself. [d] It is used to refer to the difficulty found in punishment. [e] It is used to refer to grief. [f] It is used to refer to a valley in the hell fire. [Ref 2]

A husband curses his wife!

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said: A husband cursing his wife is an evil thing. It is not permissible; rather it is from the major sins due to established (narration) from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) that he said: ‘’Cursing a Muslim is like killing him (or her).’’

Abu Mu’aawiyah

Cursed is the one who approaches his wife in her…..

The Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam) said:

”Cursed is he who approaches a woman (i.e. his wife) in the anus.” [1]

The messenger (sallal-laahu- alayhi wasallam) said:

”Indeed Allah is not shy of the truth.  Do not have intercourse with women (i.e. your wives) in their anuses.” [2]
