Gheebah (backbiting, gossip)

Allah (the Exalted and Almighty) has said:
And spy not, neither backbite one another.
Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother?
You would hate it (so hate backbiting)

( Al-Hujur√Ęt : 12 )

Gheebah (backbiting, gossip)
means that a person mentions the faults of his Muslim brother
in his absence, which he would not like if he heard about it,
when there is no need to mention them.

Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported:
Allah's Messenger (may peace and blessings be upon him) said:
Three are the signs of a hypocrite:
when he speaks he tells a lie,
when he makes a promise he acts treacherously,
and when he is trusted he betrays.
(Sahih Muslim)
