Tale Carrying and the Danger of the One who Carries Tales


Tale Carrying; And The Danger Of The One Who Carries Tales And Hastens To Destroy The Relationship Between The Students Of Knowledge

Shaikh Saaleh Al Fawzaan [hafidhahullaah said]:
Tale carrying is to transmit speech between the people with the intent of destroying their relationships.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies‘ [Surah Qalam; Ayah:10-11]

And the severest of all of that is the one who hastens to destroy the relationship between the students of knowledge and the callers to Islaam; and in order to divide the Jama’ah of the Muslims and incite hatred between them.  The one who does this is a nammaam (a tale carrier).

Indeed, Allaah (The Most High) has made it impermissible to follow and believe such a person even if he swears by Allaah, as Allaah said:

And obey not everyone who swears much, and is considered worthless, a slanderer, going about with calumnies‘ [Surah Qalam; Ayah:10-11]

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

The tale carrier will not enter paradise

And it is reported in a narration that the tale carrier causes more corruption in an hour than a magician can cause in a year.

Tale carrying is of magic, because the magician corrupts the relationship between the people and causes enmity between them, as Allaah (The Most High) said:

And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife‘ [Baqarah; Ayah:102]

They learnt magic and magic causes splitting of the hearts and enmity.  Likewise, tale carrying is more severe than magic; perhaps wars may occur due to the Tale Carrier; and perhaps the Muslims may split and show enmity to one another due to the Tale Carrier; neighbours may boycott one another and one’s household may show enmity to one another and split due to a Tale Carrier.

Therefore, we must fear Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal) and be mindful of the Tale Carrier [1] end of quote

We have also seen how destructive it is when the people carry tales about spouses. That so and so is doing this and so and so is doing this. And most of the time, it is done with the intent to cause enmity between the spouses out of jealousy and hatred.

We need to be brothers towards one another and sisters towards the sisters, may Allah bless all of you.

So the tale carrying is also applicable to the relationship between the spouses, just ask Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan gave the definition of tale carrying to be: “Tale carrying is to transmit speech between the people with the intent of destroying their relationships.”
May Allah keep us away from this sin of tale carrying and preserve all the relationships between ourselves. Ameen.
