When is backbiting allowed?
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
There are some circumstances where a person may talk about his brothers and sisters:
- If the person is being oppressed
- Requesting a fatwa
- When seeking marriage or being a witness
- Warning people of anothers’ evil deeds or evil intentions
