Question

I know a woman who works in
the field of Da'wah (Islamic
propagation). This woman is a
very successful caller to Allah
The Almighty and has a very
positive effect on other women.
However, when I sit with her in
private sessions, she commits
one of the most heinous sins:
she backbites everyone
including her own parents; she
criticizes them bitterly and
shows no respect to them in
front of others.
How can she be a successful
caller to the worship of Allah
The Almighty, and a humble
worshipper who weeps in prayer
when she commits such terrible
sins? Could you explain ?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah,
the Lord of the worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His Slave and
Messenger.

No human being is perfect.
Perfection is a divine attribute.
No person in this world is safe
from committing sins and
making mistakes. However,
when we commit a sin or make
a mistake, we must repent, and
ask Allah The Almighty for
forgiveness. The Prophet
says that “all the sons of
Aadam (Adam) make
mistakes, but the best of
those who make mistakes are
those who frequently repent.”
[Ahmad and At-Tirmithi]
The Prophet also said that
“if we never committed sins,
Allah The Exalted would
replace us with people who
would commit sins and then
seek forgiveness from Him,
and He would forgive them.”
[Muslim]

At the same time, this should
never suggest that we are
encouraged to sin. Indeed, we
must show the love of Allah The
Almighty for those who repent
seeking His forgiveness, and
Allah The Almighty accepts their
repentance.

The sister who works in the
field of Da'wah, yet backbites
others must be a good example
to others by practicing what she
preaches.
On the other hand, a Muslim
who sees her commit such sins
should advise her and remind
her with the Quranic verses in
which Allah The Almighty Says
(what means):

• {O you who have believed,
why do you say what you do
not do? Great is hatred in the
sight of Allah that you say
what you do not do.} [Quran
61:2-3]
• {Do you order righteousness
of the people and forget
yourselves while you recite
the Scripture? Then will you
not reason?} [Quran 2:44]
Allah Knows best.
