What is Backbiting

Backbiting is the (act of) mentions shame someone – that is – that person does not like it if mentioned. If it is mentioned, his name is backbiting, if not correctly name buht (in Indonesian known as ‘libel’) (please see definition in the book of al-Mausû’ah Fiqhiyyah al-Juz 31 page 330, the work of al-Qurtubi). In the present, the term is similar to backbiting gossip. In fact, all the backbiting gossip is a disgrace because they inform someone (usually the artist) that the artist would not like it.
