Character Assassination

In this short talk, Sheikh Nouman Khan reflects on some verses from Surat Al-Humazah (the 104th Chapter of the Qur’an which was revealed in the early stages of Islam when people were just accepting this new religion) to explain how the good character could be assassinated.

Sheikh Nouman begins his talk by narrating the hadith of Ibn `Abbass (may Allah be pleased with him) when Abu Aljauza’ asked him, “who are those people whom Allah condemns with ‘wayl’”. Ibn `Abbas answered, “Those are the people who uncover secrets and disclose that which it is not appropriate to be disclosed, those who cause divisions between those who love each other, and those who constantly describe people with flaws.”

Then, he talks about the meaning of the original Arabic words humazah and  lumazah which are almost interchangeable in how they are used. Imam Mujahid said, “Al-Humazah is with the hand and the eye, and Al-Lumazah is with the tongue.”
