Gheeba is the Arabic translation of back biting..
It means unpleasant or cruel talk about someone who is not present..
Those who talk in front of you about other people..will definitely talk about you badly someday..
Back biting is described in Islam as if someone is eating the flesh of someone else who is dead..
This image really reflects how awful it is to talk badly in the back of someone else.
If you sit in a place and you listen for someone who is back biting another person..you should react positively..defend that person or advise that person to stop talking or leave the place and go away..
Because if you listen to back biting and do not make any reaction…be sure that you are sharing in that bad behaviour…
I advise my self and every one who reads..
( Be positive..and share not in back biting..)
O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And obey Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
