Shariah has emphasized on the rights of other people. Always be sensitive to the next person’s feelings and emotions. You should try to help and assist others. If you cannot do that, then at least you should not harm anyone. It is very important to abstain from backbiting, slander and false accusation.

Once the people asked the Prophet ﷺ:

“Which type of Islam is the most virtuest?” He replied, “In which the Muslims are safe from his tongue and his hand.”*[1]

In one Hadith, it has been mentioned that a person should love and wish for his Muslim brother what he loves and wishes for himself.

“None of you can attain the level of Iman unless you love for your brother what you love for*yourself.” [2]

Another Hadith mentiones:

“The worst of people in the eyes of Allah on the Day of Judgment is he from whom others keep their distances in order to save themselves from his mischief.”[3]

Regarding backbiting, the Hadith considers it worse than committing adultery. Rasullullah ﷺ has said:

“Abstain from backbiting. Verily backbiting is worse than committing adultery.” He was asked, “O Prophet of Allah, how is backbiting worse than committing adultery?” He replied, “A person fornicates and repents and Allah forgives him. And a person who backbites is not forgiven unless the person whom he backbited does not forgive him.”*[4]
