How should we repent from backbiting? We know that backbiting is one of the sins in Islam. Allah told us not to backbite each other in the Quran.
Backbiting is a common thing that people fall into. The door of repentance is wide open for all of us. Allah tells us not to despair of His mercy. Allah forgives all sins.
Repentance means that we regret the sin that we have done. Repentance means we have the intention not to go back to it. Repentance means we change this behaviour. Should you tell the person you talked about them behind their back? If you can, then it is fine with two conditions. The first is that you can. The second is that no greater harm will happen by telling them.
If you are unable to tell the person because it will cause more harm than good, then you should ask Allah for forgiveness of this person. You should also praise this person in public gatherings.
May Allah forgive us all for backbiting and protect our tongue from such evil actions.
